  1. Tate

    i have 2…. I hated it when we got rid of billups for AI…. and Id have to say the other one was dumping all the extra money into CV31 and Gordon

  2. Richard

    This is @Dem3triu5 lol just wanted to post mine again.. “When we traded for Iverson and when we lose to the Spurs for the championship..”

  3. Karl

    When we lost to the Spurs in ’05. REALLY wanted another back to back. Also, BG and CV31 not producing during the short lived Kuester era.

  4. Cayden gibb

    When lebron dropped 50 on us in game five in 07. I was only 9 then and I was so sad I cried all night

    • Fariduddin

      damn, that did hurt like a mug!

      • Tate

        I sprained my wrist punching the floor when boobie started hitting threes and rasheed lost his mind…

  5. Krazeykletus

    Tayshaun losing his consecutive games streak 4 shy of 500! I was so sad for him, you can’t just start over on something like that!

  6. edt

    Allen Iverson did not live up to the hype. Practice? Not a game not a game.

  7. Fariduddin

    Will have to say Iverson’s arrival to the Pistons…

  8. Bellllissimo

    biggest disappointment is probably Joe Dumars’s unwillingness to make anything happen for the team after the championship. Just kind of rested on the fact he put together the championship then kind of cruised

  9. PMC

    NEVER getting a big trade, Hiring Kuester, Hiring Michael Curry, Trading Chauncy, CV, Watchin Sheed fade, no back to back, Losing to Cleveland, Sheed getting dunked on by LeBron :'(

    • Natalie Sitto

      That’s more than one! But I feel you

  10. edt

    by the way Allen Iverson has told the Boston Celtics he wants to get signed there. Hahahaha! As if they would take him, even at the vet minimum it’s a waste of money. AI is more likely to show up down in Miami where they have more need of vet min players for salary cap reasons.

  11. Enoc (Mexico)

    AI for CB, Kuester, and the 05 Finals…

  12. BennyB

    LARRY BROWN!! two straight trips to the finals… and we fire him…

    Next season, good bye BEN cya in few years. A.I. of course, but jus billups I miss, Aaron Aflalo too, he is very good. Then resigning mcdyss. Michael curry?? for real?? might as well been me… RIP DAVIDSON…. lastly BG.. i thought he was good at basketball.

    • Drew

      Larry Brown was planning his next job during our Finals run. We did not fire him.

  13. CRA1G

    My biggest disappointment is that we couldn’t get that Ice 4 Dyess 🙁

    Game 7 of the 2005 Finals really did suck. Really sticks out in my mind… junior year of high school…. basement full of best friends…. needless to say everyone was close to crying. One image of that game really sticks out in my mind from; a shot of Rip Hamilton sitting in the sauna towel draped over his head, knowing full well that day would haunt him for the rest of his life.

    • JTC

      considering the first 3 quarters of game 7 in the 05 finals were ours and we couldn’t close it out…very heartbreaking…

  15. hMarsh32

    Ever since that day, I have vowed to never be a spurs fan.

    My main disappointments would be this and the losses of LB and Mr. D. Devistated the team and we are still feeling the shockwaves.

  16. The Duke

    Game 7 loss to SA. or trading Billups for AI.

  17. Matthew

    Since most have been brought up already, I’m going to go with the players protest of Kuester last year and basically boycotting a game. I know Kuester was not cut out for the job and fully deserved to be fired, but what the players did made me disappointed to be a Pistons fan. I’m hoping with Lawrence Frank, his staff and the new ownership we get the hard working, blue collar team back that made me proud to be a Piston Fan.

  18. He Hate Me

    I’m going with last year’s Rip-Gate, when Kuester benched half the team, that was embarrassing.

  19. AJ

    BIGGEST DISSAPOINTMENT is SO MANY PLAYERS/STAFF changes but so little to gain from it!

  20. Kevin (PHL)

    Game 7 of 2005 Finals 🙁 ugh.

  21. JTC

    Definitely the trading of Chauncey for AI. How can anyone in their right mind trade away such quality leadership and replace it with a washed up, overrated, arrogant piece of garbage in AI? I will never forgive Dumars for making such a stupid move! I must say that 3-point that Horry made in Game 5 of the 05 Finals. All we had to do was put a body on him! That scene of him being wide open haunts me to this day!

  22. George Blaholler

    How terrible was it to hear Fred McLeod calling games for the Cavs…that guy bled Pistons blue, and to hear him get excited over LBJ, that killed me a little bit inside. Overall losing Bill Davidson is the worst thing that could have ever happened…I am hopefull Gores can hold a candle, but I’ll take a members only jacket in the front row over an unbuttoned white shirt in a suite everyday of the week.

  23. daddy

    robert horey going off for 19 points and the dreaded three. seriously guy only does that in playoffs him and fisher.

  24. T1theinfamous

    I have a top 3.

    1. Trading for Iverson.

    2. Charlie Villanueva being on the team.

    3. Us not getting rid of Richard Hamilton when he was still worth some money.
