    Natallie, you scared me. With all the trade talk going about, when I saw Rips name, I thought he got traded :'(

  3. Natalie Sitto

    LOL I guess it was misleading, didn’t mean to do that but Im sorry.

    Gotta shake things up and at least try to make us laugh.

  4. Richie

    Laughter in a time it’s needed most.

  5. Th3 Answ3r

    Haha, no need to be sorry Natalie. Thanks for the laughter though.

  6. Natalie Sitto

    Onin….how many more times??? well until he gets canned is my guess.

    Let me just say that is the BEST VIDEO EVER!!!! I always loved ZAZA for his name but now it’s legendary

  7. pistons 4 life

    Curry has lost this team (at least the vets) similar to how Porter lost the entire Suns roster. How bad was that situation for Porter to get fired 4 months into a 3 year deal. Now they owe him like $6 million. Ouch. Joe should follow suit.

  8. big B

    well he deserved it hes an idiot just like that bald headed prick we have coaching our bad ass team , i love this team n i hate seeing us play like that 🙁

  9. Amer ican Prince

    And Rip was dogging Sheed’s dancing? Ha I just love the fact he went for it and actually did the dance.

    I also find myself enjoying watching Zaza. The only thing better than that from Zaza is watching him get in KGs face for acting like a punk

  10. augustslady

    Great seeing rip smile…not to much of that this season…
    Hope it’s more smiles the rest of the way!lol

  11. Damien W.

    To Juice: Wow, Zaza was.. something. XD That was hilarious.

    Rip’s Dance: Um… the dance was TERRIBLE! XDDD But you got to give it to Rip for laughing the whole time. A smile on the face of a Piston is something we need.

  12. ben

    dumars needs to make a move im hearin bosh to chicago antawn might be goin to cleveland everybody is gonna get better were gonna be stuck in a fuckin hole and in 2010 we wont have anybody because derrick rose and bosh would be great together

  13. LeBron James

    I want to come to Detroit. I want a team that is struggling so I can bring them up and show everyone I am better than Kobe. C’mon Detroit come get me.

  14. SadPanda

    This is just disgusting to watch. They play like crap at home against bad teams, and then they wonder why the sellout streak ended. The Bucks have no business coming in and handing the Pistons their asses like this. The players look like they don’t even care anymore.

    This rebuilding might be a lot tougher than I thought. I’ll keep cheering them on, but right now the future looks pretty grim.

  15. pistons 4 life

    Does anyone else think that Billups is smiling somewhere right now. It’s become very obvious that he meant everything to this team. Shouldn’t have let him go Joe. Bad move. Who cares about cap space. Sheed would have given them enough to get someone good in the next 2 years.

  16. Amer ican Prince

    Hey guys Curry went zone and we almost won. Anyone else noticing everything he said at the beginning of the season, he’s doing the opposite now?

  17. Bobby

    wow… owned by the bucks…

    this sucks.

  18. Th3 Answ3r

    Yay! Mcdyess plays his ass off an gets a loss! Way to go Pistons!… Mcdyess shouldn’t be playing his heart out for this shit on team w/ a half brained coach. You should’ve stayed w/ Billups 🙁

  19. Natalie Sitto

    I noticed the ZONE right away…so now it’s not about principle anymore the dude is just trying to save his job. Should have listened a long time ago Curry.


    FYI…still having trouble with the site today….I think it was David Stern


  20. pistons 4 life

    So are all of the optimistic people finally going to admit that they Pistons are done this year? Way to go guys, you have the entire All Star break off and you lose to the Bucks at home. Now we all know what it’s like to be a Thunder or Wizards fan. This team can’t win a game to save their lives.

    Honestly, how did it come to this? They really weren’t that bad after the trade, but lately they just plain SUCK.

  21. Amer ican Prince

    haha that’s funny natalie I don’t care who you are right there.

    But Sheed and Dyess both impressed me down the stretch. Now if the guards would do what they need to do, we could be getting somewhere

  22. pistons 4 life

    Great just what Detroit needs, another Rod Maraneli. A coach just trying to save his job. If that’s what he’s doing just fire his ass. At least an interim coach would develop our bench and young players.

  23. Baller4life

    dude im done w.dis
    27-25 we r battling with phily for da 6th playoff spot!
    thats jus sad
    Listen up joe
    a) FIRE CURRY!!!! or
    b) MAKE A TRADE!!!
    otherwise we arent even going to make the playoffs!!!!

  24. Amer ican Prince

    I know you guys are mad, but how about we talk about what was good about this game.

    Curry learning he is not playing and zone can help some of the other players.

    Dyess showing us what we can possibly look forward to with him as a starter.

  25. Th3 Answ3r

    Theirs nothing good about the game as long as the half brained “coach” stays around. I wish the fans would start chanting “fire curry.” Just like how Lion fans did to their head coach (I believe it was 2 seasons ago).

  26. blamu2

    The best thing is that we have San Antonio, Cleveland, Miami, NO, Orlando, Boston and Denver next. We probably could beat Miami but it depends on Wade.

  27. El Patron Himself (Accept no Imitations!)

    Natalie, I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again:

    David Stern had nothing to do with this… I still think it was the Cavs haters since no matter what they’re never happy!

    Stern is happy… his wet dream of LeBron vs Kobe is in motion… I mean, he even got Tyson Chandler traded so that CP3 doesn’t have a sidekick anymore! I’m just waiting for the Commish to go Tonya Harding on Tim Duncan’s ACL and then abducting Robert Horry (so he can’t come out of retirement!) so that the Spurs don’t play spoilers to that NBA Finals!

    Since we’re talking about trades… how about this (once again, spare me the WTFs…):

    TRADE CHICKEN CURRY!!!!!! Now that’s a trade I’d get behind!!!! For whom? I have no idea! Just put one of them Fatheads of Chuck Daly! That’ll do a better job than Chicken Curry!!!!!!

  28. Rick

    please move dyess to the top of the faces on the leftt

  29. Onin

    the next 7 games, really would define their season.

  30. Rick

    joe get zaza asap
    he knows nothing is easy
    him and dyess are a force to be reckoned with in the front court

  31. ben

    were gonna lose the next 7 games and were gonna get blown out in all of them… chauncey is gunna come home smiling sayin look at me im winning now what the fuck are yall doin?? get off my jock detroit he even thinks this team is a joke even though his buddies are here

  32. ben

    and yeah i think amare and the suns put away all the trade talks tonight 140 points wow… t

  33. pete

    Seriously, what’s wrong with Avery Johnson? I think he’d be great with this group, especially Stuck. They actually need to be overcoached now. I just don’t understand it… Curry is simply obviously not a head coach. On any level.

  34. augustslady

    I really don’t think this team will make the playoffs.
    I don’t even know that it would be such a bad thing.
    Sort of reminds me of our hapless tigers of last year.Mybe they should all stay home and let the kids play,couldn’t be worse.
    Just feel sorry for antonio!
    He deserves better!
    Yes,he should of stayed with chauncy!

  35. pistons 4 life

    Anyone here listen to Jim Rome? “Boom, outa here”
    At this point I hope they do miss the playoffs because it will only help our cause getting Curry fired and they’d get a better draft pick. This season has been a total disaster, and I predict it to continue being a total disaster.

  36. Steve The Hated

    curry is a faggot and dumars is a bitch!

  37. Natalie Sitto

    Steve The Hated _ I have warned you enough and quite frankly I’m sick of being a baby sitter here.

    GO Support the Wings you’re banned.

  38. augustslady

    Watch the B remarks!
    We can be tough as nails….
    Is that what your accusing joe of?
    We shall see what transpires,take a breadth
    and chill!lol

  39. ALMEI


    Thank you for blocking certain posts (or future posts). I read these with my son (12)and quite frankly–although not a prude–the language at times gets embarassing and absolutely not necessary for such a terrific site you have provided us with. Sometimes I use it to “vent” a little (but I am always clean). Even though we are a bit disappointed in our Pistons this year, let’s see what happens over the next 30 games–and more importantly, have a little trust that maybe a step back this season propels us forward over the next several seasons.

  40. Then  Fan

    There is no leadership on the floor. No commeroderie. No heart. No team. When is someone on the pistons going to step up and bring the group together?

  41. Amer ican Prince

    Natalie don’t play, she’s the Xena of the cyber world

  42. Sam

    People, where is the reality in this?
    Economy wise, Detroit is ready to implode because of what’s going on in the auto industry. People are more worried about surviving than what’s happening in sports. Though it really disgusts me how these spoiled athletes behave like jerks. (See NY Yankees and A-Rod)

    Maybe Joe is playing for the ping pong balls in June and just letting the team tank until Sheed and AI’s salaries come off the books.

    Nice video of Rip though.
