    i like the fact that we can be critical about our fave team… but i feel like the last 3 or so top 5 lists have been mainly negative… what about a nice top 5 list with mainly positive vibes before the playoffs start?? i mean, they are second in the league!

    how about top 5 improvements from last year to this year?

    id have to say theyre pretty wrong abotu tayshaun, i didnt think hed be llike an elite scorer or anything, i expected the same, hes going to play this way as long as hes like the 3rd option, im fine with it if we give him a good number of touches a game, we have to many other deadly options to make tayshaun our #1 or 2 guy, but hes done pretty much what ive expected and i think hes done a great job of playing with the bench.

  3. rbaan

    id say hes our 4th option actually, my mistake

  4. claire

    mannie, I agree. More positive things need to be said about the Pistons. I feel that we expect a lot from them (it’s a good thing, because if they’re not capable of being great, we wouldn’t expect them to). But at the same time, it would be nice to show them some more love before the Playoffs. Sooo…LONG LIVE THE PISTONS!!!

  5. mannie32

    thanks claire, glad to see im not the only one

    and i 100% agree about tayshaun… i think he does what we need him to do… and it’s not the most glorious job, but he does it anyway… he’s extremely important to us

  6. bennie

    Hey guys, I kind of feel the same way. I am proud of the team, but I think as fans, we had to let the Pistons know what we expect from them during the playoffs this year (Remember the last two). We are most certainly going positive heading into the playoffs, because we want to boost the morale headed in. Thanks for your suggestion guys. GO Pistons!!

    What about the lack of utilization of Flip murray? I wouldve called you crazy if you told me in the beggining of the season Flip Murray was riding the bench the and then would be waved later on. I always thought Flip would be the no 2 SG off the bench but again the emergence of Afflalo conributed to that

  8. bennie

    Yea, when they drafted Afflalo, I kind of knew that they were heading into a different direction than Flip. I thought Flip really showed that he could run the point well in chauncey Billups absence, but I guess the organization did not think so

  9. Richie

    Wow, Bennie- really? Most of us, myself included, thought that Flip Murray was a trainwreck of turnovers waiting to happen. When Stuckey makes mistakes from driving the lane, its ocassional and I can see it as growing pains. With Flip it was constant and we knew that he wasn’t going to change any time soon.
    I still don’t hold it against him as a player. He was a SG thrown into a PG’s shoes far to often yet inconsistantly to really play his game comfortably.

  10. Bennie

    Richie, I think they never truly supported him. The guy can play, and when chauncey was hurt with the calf strain a season ago, he played excellent against the Phoenix Suns. He is a 2 guard trying to play the point, but flip is a good player, he just never fit in at Detroit. They tried to change him into a point guard, and Chauncey can tell you how difficult that can be since he we through the same thing. It was obvious early on that the Pistons were not committed to him. I do agree, that I like the moves that the Pistons have made!

  11. Richard

    hey nat….how about a blogfest outside of michigan? lets say, CALI!!! i guess it would have to be an nba finals???? is that the only way u and matt would do it? remember, as you already know, there are a lot of pistons supporters in the west side. hhahaha
