Antonio McDyess and his Journey

by | Mar 22, 2008 | 10 comments

You can’t seem to be a Pistons fan and not root for Antonio McDyess. Not only does he do whatever it takes to contribute to the team night in and night out, but more than anything he longs for a Championship. I think more than anyone on this current Pistons team.

NBA All Access with Ahmad Rashad did a great piece on Antonio’s beginning, to his time here with the Pistons.

If you’re not rooting for McDyess after watch this then there’s something wrong with you.

    I knew that McDyess had knee surgeries in the past, but I didn’t know he blew out his knee in 3 different places! OUCH!

    *Sighs* Come on people, nobody knows how long Dyess is willing to wait, we got to get the Championship, not for the fans, but for McDyess! *Holds up random pair of playing dice* Lets get rollin’!

    Dyess is the man! Before he had all those surguries he was like an Amare Stoudimare. Imagine if he play liked he did before his surguries today on the Pistons.

    I can’ belive he was 6’4′ in 8th grade!

    I seen this come up on the RSS reader and figured it’d be a good read. Unfortunately it was just another video I’ve already seen 🙁

    The only thing that can get that picture of McDyess sitting on that bench after we lost to the Heat will be a championship.

    He’s been through a lot, I’m just happy he’s a Piston.

    I just hope he comes back next season. I really hope he gets a ring, even if it is withou or without the Pïstons, but as we know, he doesn’t want to play anywhere else than for Detroit.

    Actually, after losing to the Spurs, and then the Cavs, I felt really bad for the whole team, esp. Dyess. I never really got the chance to see the old Dyess when he was on top of his career with the Nuggets. But i really love watching him now.

    One thing really is spectacular about him, its the way how he changed his gameplay. He really developed that jumper into a reliable one now. I dont really know if he got this when he was a Nugget, but basing from his explosiveness on the videos, i can assume that he really was a Amare type of player and less likely settle for jumpshots. That transition right there is not a joke!

    Go Pistons!
