Have you made it to any of the games?

You could nearly throw a rock from your house to the Palace, can't you? Okay maybe not, but you're closer than I am.

Well boy and girls, as a cavs fan living in Cleveland, yesterdays game was way overdue, that is the Lebron carrying the team thing. Unfortunately, he has to be wiped out both physically and emotionally, and I am forecasting a poor performance in game 6, rest of cavs team usual performance, Detroit wins. He reemerges in game 7 to take series. Either team gets blown out by San Antonio. Still sticking to that story.

I only made it to one game this season, it was the first loss I've seen at the Palace in twenty or so games. I'll definitely be online trying to get tix to game seven. If that doesn't happen it will be the first year in quite a while I haven't made it to at least one playoff game.

My boss could actually hit the Palace with a stone when he's almost home (he drives right by it). If he hits the traffic wrong he's got a two and a half hour commute:

Lebron was phenomenal in game five. There are very few players who could have done what he did... but man, the Pistons are playing him like they think he has cooties! Laimbeer and Mahorn must have been sick watching that.

Stu Jackson was in the stands. I think he must have put out the word that anyone who stood in Lebron's way got an automatic three game suspension.

Well that was a pretty good story. I’m proud that my team was part of it although I wish they’re role had been a bit more noble. At least they stuck around to congratulate their opponents rather than snub them like Zeke and his crew.

Buz, keep the faith man. I sure hope SA will be a more formidable foe but this team believes they’re up to the task. If you predict your own failure you’re sure to achieve it.

The Pistons simply got outplayed that series. James was great, and the role players really stepped up too. Gibson was on fire last night.

I'm rooting for the Cavs now... (although I still can't stand Varajaou.)

Well, now maybe they'll finally dump Rasheeeeeeedhead. He lost them the final against SA and against Miami. Two years running he failed to cover his man. Maybe the outburst was his recognition of his uselessness in Detroit anymore.

Dumars has made a bunch of good moves (except for Darko/Carmello) and now it's time for some more.

Well, bump, I am still a believer, thou living in Cleveland surrrounded by title towns detroit and pittsburgh makes believing really tough most times!!! (Especially the way most Cleve. teams with the exception of the indians have played the last 20 years!!!) Also, because I am not a TV fan, I have no cable TV. So I don't see hardly any games. I did see both of the last San Antonio/Jazz games, because I was on road working, and SA looked really good.

The Cavs have beaten SA both times they played them, in SA and at home, no doubt a confidence builder. So we will see and I will stay the believer, but be pleasently suprised, if it goes 6.

I'll be rooting for the Cavs in this series. Let the King be crowned. Maybe that will give Joe Dumars even more motivation to build a better team.

Just to play the thread killer

I hear the Kings are shopping Artest around. Now there is a match made in Hell for the Pistons. Very popular dude in Motown. Sheed, Test and....What are you doing with Chris Webber and the Game 6 fade?

Garrrr! Artest a Piston? I have WAY more faith in Joe D than that.

Naturally, there's a lot of speculation about what the front court roster will look like next year. My guess is that C Webb and Dale Davis will retire, either 'Sheed or Nazr Mohammed or possibly both will be traded, McDyess' contract will be extended. Jason Maxiell will play a much bigger role next year.

Obviously if much of this comes to pass we will be in the market for a veteran big man or three. Talk of Zach Randolf or Kevin Garnett is quite popular right now but I don't think it's realistic.

It's sure to be an interesting summer for Piston fans.

Wow... A LOT of talk right now that 'Sheed should be gone. Who do you replace him with that would be an improvement? Not only is he best big man on the team, he is one of the best bigs in the NBA. He is unguardable on the low post, is a deadly outside shooter, and can usually contain the opponent's best post player quite admirably on defense, and rebounds well. He had 7 blocks in one game last series! The dude is a force.

He has some baggage, and is overly emotional... oh, well. At least he plays with passion.

This is still a very good team. I would not break up the core of Chauncey, Rip, Tay and Sheed. Joe will do some tweaking and hopefully improve for next season. Blowing the roster up is not a good choice in my opinion.
