keep rip ,max,stuckey,prince,amire,and build on from these players,we are 2 players away,we need a
strong young power forward that can score down low on the block,and can finish a drive to the basket,we need someone who ,like a vinnie ,come off bench and light it up,to the point ,young guns
is what this team needs,forget boston im not
impressed,if a few of our guys came with the bad boy attitude when they stepped to the court , we
would be playing the lakers,wesimply gave this to
an old misfit team,when u let aguard in the paint
laying it off the glass u deserve to loose,and i agree with rip dont be hugging the opponet after a game,chauncey played in pain and was not able
to move on a quick right and leftof defending,now it will be up to rip and stuckey,boston got away
with one ,lakers in 5 or 6
had enough

Personally I love Rasheed. Hes a great player and and no doubt about it, when he plays good, hes good. But when he doesn't, the entire team pays for it. Game 6, we lost because sheed played really bad getting 4 points and 5 fouls. We need to trade sheed for a younger and fiercer foward. A pontential scorer you would say. Yes we have Billups and Rip, but no one down low. Antonio did perfect the beginning of the series but fell apart. Prince just totally fell apart from the beginning of this series. Idea: Trade Rasheed for someone else or trade anyone for someone who is hungry for a title because Detroit is hungry for another title. Dumars will do good. Remember when we first got Rasheed, we won its going to happen again. Hopefully this will be bigger then the Big Three in Boston

I am not sure if Curry is the right guy for the job at this time

I am not from battle creek by the way. I believe Joe should strongly consider Avery Johnson, I believe avery would fit in great here woth this team as it stands now. In dallas Avery had Mark Cuban on his back a little too much, the guy yelled at the refs more than Avery, the team or the fans for that matter! Avery is tough enough and smart enough to get the Pistons (yes even Rasheed)over the hump and back to the nba finals. He would earn their respect. Flip did not do this, that's part of the reason why we lost Ben Wallace. Flip lost three straight confrence finals to three different teams, you realy have to question the leadership abilities or as Joe said it "time to chage the voice"

As for who should be traded, well I say Mr. Big Shot! He's good on offense although terrible on defense! That makes it harder on the bigs to stay on their defensive assignments which causes first FOUL TROUBLE FOR RASHEED; and second a drive and dish for the score or score off the drive itself because Chauncey can't keep his man in front of him. There is one problem with trading Billups and that is his contract so I expect to see him back next year. The next attracitve canidate is none other than Rasheed. With one year left on his contract and HUGE talent to go with it he's the most marketable player. Let us not forget however that Sheed was the missing piece to our championship back in 04, the same emitional player he is know is the same from back then, the only diffrence of course is the coach. It would realy have to be a good deal for me to let that caliber of player go, as I said earlier the right coach can handle Rasheed. In all honestly we should have won another title with this core group and we still can, so it would not bother me to see them all return..... Just with the right coach.
