McDyess made sure his homecoming was one to remember, especially after his standing ovation right before the tip. The Pistons organization made such a great welcome home video for McDyess that was played on the big screen before the game started that it had me, as well as other Pistons, fans teary eyed. (They didn’t broadcast the video during the game so I don’t have it. I’m told they are going to have it on Pistons.com.)
UPDATE: Here’s a video taken from the stands – thanks to altan in the comments.
Dyess didn’t disappoint in the Pistons’ 114-110 win over the Pacers.
He even recreated “the block.” It wasn’t on the most famous Pacer Reggie Miller, but it was impressive nonetheless.
