Team Need4Sheed member Christian Russe is at it again with another Pistons Video mix. What should we expect from our boys this season…..

  2. Ryan

    Awesome video!

  3. Nathan

    Wow! I’m definitely ready for some Detroit Basketball…

    Great Vid

  4. Mr. Lulanaj

    Cool video
    its just a scary situation, sometimes i have bad feelings about this new team and other times i think with all the talent we have it better be a above 500 team this year. Of course if the coachin staff works out this time which i think will be pretty good on the offensive end – its the other end that scares me

    sounds like it says fresh feces, not faces lol

  6. tim

    woah. chills.

    hey has anyone else heard some people sayin that ben gordon will be playing the point? is that true? does that mean stucky’s comin off the bench?

  7. DEL

    Ben Gordon playing the point? I just don’t see it, and hope that it will be only rumors.
    Mine starting 5 should be :

    5.BEN WALLACE! – playing a lot less minutes than our other bigs, but he has to be the heart of our team, the guy who will show us at starts of 1st and 3rd quarter that we can’t be affraid of anybody and Pistons should fight for every ball. I hop he still has it!!

    Gordon – playing significant minutes, even more than Rip, and probably being the 1st scorer on team. but Rip should start, he is our captain and Rip is Rip :) Ben can play very effectively from bench and he will in Detroit

    and to be honest I don’t know how to mesh rest of our team into rotation. which of ours bigs will play the most of the game? I really think that Chris Wilcox was a real steal and will be more effective than Kwame. and it will be on the C position. of course Maxx on PF and Bynum on PG.
    and later our young guys :)

    wow this is a long post :) i hope someone will aggree with me about this basics of rotation, because i really think it could give us a lot of W-s !

    ok that was so weakkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

    i’m diggin’ it.

    The rumor is that Dumars isn’t signing a third point guard because Ben Gordon can play point a couple minutes a game, if needed in that capacity… or in the case of a serious injurty to Stuckey or Bynum. He’s not an ideal floor general, but I think he can man the point for a few minutes and in the emergency capacity just fine, leaving the Pistons open to accept a 2-for-1 trade if something good came down the trade pipe line.

    I don’t see CV or Gordon as defensive liabilities. At worst, they’re mediocre. CV’s 6.7 RPG seems low until you factor in his minutes (26.9). Rasheed averaged 7.4 RPG last season in 32.2 minutes. Given 32.2 minutes, you can expect CV to average 8 RPG. He’s not the one-on-one defender Sheed is, nor is he the shot-blocker, but he can get out and defend the pick and roll PLUS bring significantly more reliable offense. He’ll have his ups and downs, but I’d definitely rather have a 25 year-old CV that’s improving than a 35 year-old Sheed who is getting worse, year by year.

    While people have had mixed feelings over BG, he represents more firepower off the bench than the Pistons have had since Vinny Johnson (and will likely eclipse the Microwave’s numbers, given he’s not playing behind Isiah and Dumars).

    Loosing McDyess hurts, but I’m hoping Kwame Brown, Chris Wilcox and Big Ben can make up for whatever we’ve lost by committee.

    I wasn’t really looking forward to the season before, but now that it is so close to starting I find myself kinda antsy and ready to get this thing going. No matter how the season shapes up I just really want it to get started.

    thank you all for your comments!

    thanks matt!

  16. Ronnie D.

    Wow, that was a great little video.

  17. Patrick

    well made

  18. sheed_russe

    thanks boys

  19. Ross

    Ben will most likely only be playing a few minutes a game at point. This will make it so the Pistons can have their two best scorers in RIP and BG on the floor at once without sacrificing size all that much.

  20. Richie

    I like it a a lot!

  21. AceOfSpades

    good video but what number is ben gonna be already its been over 2 weeks

  22. sheed_russe

    thanks guys


    Great video, sounded like Bill Davidson was narrating the video.

  24. sheed_russe

    thanks bill!

  25. Casper411Det

    Ben Gordon should be a starter. no more slow starts! i’m sure he will he’s better than rip anyways

  26. toasterhands

    Nice vid. I hope Tay and Rip can reignite that passion. Because if they can’t, it’s going to be a long, depressing season.

  27. Darshan

    i like this slogan… :)

  28. Darshan
