I think I am more sad about McDyess leaving than Chauncey. Don't get me wrong, I love Billips, and I love the Pistons. But I think Dumars is looking towards the future. Iverson will be a free agent next year, Sheed will probably be gone.(LOVE Sheed) but that is reality. Rumors say Dice will be back before the season ends, and then the Pistons will be looking for a new and younger team. But PLEASE!!! Keep Lindsey Hunter!! He is my favorite!! I love watching this "old" veteran running circles around these guys and stealing the ball.

At least we have basketball. Lions suck, U of M sucks, oh ya, we do have the Wings. Go Pistons!!

Dude, the Pistons originated in Ft. Wayne Indiana:

They were there for about 20 years until the city of Detroit stole them and turned their fans into convicts.

and why does this matter? you're right. every single detroit fan is a convict. our home games are actually inside an actual prison full of guards, watch towers, barbed wire, and sodomy. frightening. its one ting to be a fan of your team, but to be a delusional fan is just being from indiana. clever name by the way, let me know who won in 4 square at recess.

Did I say anything about your stolen team playing in prison????????? NO!!!!!!!!!!

All I'm saying is that your team's fans belong in prison!!!!!!!!!! Hell just look at the 2004 brawl, because of the stolen Piston's idiot convict fans the Pacers suck. And they lost Ron Artest, quite possibly the greatest ball player to ever live and my all time favorite Pacers.

detrroit are gonna be shit now but i think they try to slip ai into the starting lineup. if he dont play PG (which he shouldnt) then maybe:
PG Stuckey
SG AI
SF Rip
PF Tayshaun
C Sheed
I aint saying its good, they will have a lack of rebounding and rip is not a SF (although he is nearly tall enough). i think theyll try this.
as for nuggets, fuck i hope they get good ova the next few years, get some good youth.
BAD TRADE ON BOTH PARTS. IVERSON SHOULD HAVE BEEN TRADED FOR SOMEONE YOUNG AND MAYBE A FIRST ROUND DRAFT PICK BUT TIME WILL TELL
Rip can't play the forward position. So the stolen Detroit Pistons starting line up will be
C-Kwamie Brown
PF-Rasheed Wallace
SF-Tayshaun Prince
SG-Rip Hamilton
PG-Rodney Stuckey
AI will come off the bench for Rip as the 6th man

And just for the record, I agree with you this trade was bad for both sides. On side should have gotten some youth, because that was clearly what both sides needed. Well I guess Denver did get some youth in that center. And all in all, I'd say Denver did get the better end of the trade. But I agree with you it was a bad trade for both sides.

PS.
I highly doubt LBJ leaves the Cavs unless it is to go over seas' for like 50 million a year. He is an Ohio native and the face of that franchise.+ the Cavs sell out all their games so I bet they could outbid anyone they wanted on LBJ including the stolen Detroit Pistons, LA Lakers (the team I think next to the Cavs LBJ is most likely to sign with when his contract is up), New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, LA Clippers, Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns and the Nets (if they move to Brooklyn). I believe that's all the big market teams.

OK, maybe Ron wasn't the best player in the NBA and he was defenitally no Michael Jordan that's for shore. But when he was on the Pacers he was pretty damn good and about the hardest working man in the NBA. Then your stupid stolen team's convict fans made him leave Indiana and start sucking.

SO AGAIN

AI + Rasheed Wallace + Kwamie Brown=NO PLAYOFFS FOR THE STOLEN PISTONS=STOLEN PISTONS OWNED BY THE PACERS=2009 PISTONS=2008 KNICKS!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like little Joey Dumars screwed up big time here!!!!!!!!!!

Sure Rappin Ron has had some bad moments, but I don't give a damn what you say. Because of your stolen Pistons convict fans he was traded away from the Pacers. And yes the Pistons are stolen, and you have no room to talk.

It's not dumb at all, it's actually a smart trade at the right time. Chauncey has fell off more than iverson has over the past three years, allen is much hungrier also. In the long run this gives the pistons more money to play with and possibly land a younger superstar like lebron or bosh. Billups was great and did alot for the organization but they didn't have the fire anymore and he was starting to slowly slip also. Iverson is an allstar that should fit in nicely with this team, noone knows forsure what's gonna happen but my prediciton is things will work out nicely and it is definitely a realistic possibility for them to win a championship this nba season.

mcdyess be a man you were involved in the trade. It wouldn't be fair to the nuggets if you don't play for them.

There looking pretty good without him. Chauncey in the last couple years has kinda been going down hill. How about that Walter Herman... He is on fire.. They look pretty good against Toronto last night. Tyshaun looks like he is going to be the leader this year. As far as Mcdyece that ok because he is getting to old.

Besides Lebron, 2010 will offer Wade, Bosh, Yao Ming and Stoudamire too. I trust Joe D in this decision. Hopefully we make a good trade or acquisition then.

Chauncey has slowed down and chokes in the playoffs, but he was a good PG and team leader.
I'm worried about how the rest of the team will react to losing Chauncey.

And just for the record, actually when it comes to voting in an election for county offices believe it or not the county G-Town is in (Putnam) actually is pretty stupid, all they ever care about are the idiot republicans who play favorites and screw everyone else over. Considering the fact that we just elected two idiot county commissioners (Gene Beck & Christina Warren) who screwed our hospital over and were responsible for letting our sheriff get away with spending allot of tax payers dollars on a bunch stupid crap for him self. Hell one of them (Beck) was even dumb enough to give some one double the value of his property causing tax payers to pay a bunch of extra money. And we just elected a cop judge over someone who had been a judge in Indy for so long and had done so much. Then we elected the exacted same county council board and treasurer who let the sheriff who spent a bunch of the tax payers dollars on himself and is now a felon like about 90% of the fans of your stolen team.

But dude, get it through you thick head, I'm not being ignorant about the Detroit Pistons. They were stolen from Ft. Wayne Indiana. When that idiot Zohler moved them to Detroit (HE CLEARLY SHOULD HAVE MOVED THEM TO INDIANAPOLIS), the state of Indiana went 10 years without a professional sports team and over 20 years without an NBA, IFC, IFL, NFL, NHL, MLS, MLB, and AFL team!!!!!!!!!!

So again the Pistons were stolen from Indiana and moved to Detroit. After the Shitstons were moved to Detroit there was a brawl that showed the world their fans had gone from being good fans when the team was in Ft. Wayne to convicts then the team was STOLEN and moved to Detroit!!!!!!!!

And you think AI hasn't been going down hill???????
Hell Denver couldn't even win a playoff game with him and wouldn't even keep him 3 years!!!!!!!!!!
New flash, AI is a ball hog who will eventually provide nothing but bad Karma for who ever he plays with just like Rasheed Wallace and Kwamie Brown!!!!!!!!!!
