not everybody wants Rasheed ejected from Detroit. Rasheed is not the problem with the Piston's. There is no need to breakup the best starting five in the NBA. Improve the beench and let them play and change the coach and see what happeds

Rasheed is an important part of the Piston's team. A little discipline would be nice, but I don't want to see him go. I like his enthusiasm. Where was Billups enthusiasm during the playoff's ??? He didn't look as if he was really there to WIN. So they didn't.
I thought the ref's were a bit bias to Cleveland ( or is it Jamesland)

Without Sheed, where is the emotion? Without the emotion, where is the passion? Without the passion, where is the championship caliber team?

Sheed is critical to the success of the team. We have 1 more year in us to win the big one. If Amir and Alex are as good as they seem to be, we will have 3 fresh legs on the bench that will be the future of our team.

Delfino's Defence will be missed. Lindsey is looking old. We need help in this Bench Department

You can't get rid of 'Sheed......he's got the experience and leadership the Piston's need. Besides, I just got his jersey....gotta keep that.

Rasheed is the man. All he need is sum sportsmanship skills. They need sum passion and fire as well. They can still win the Big One even though ppl are saying its over for them. Don't write em off just yet.

LEAVE MY 6 "BABIES" INTACT!!!! The only thing wrong is for some reason, a different team has shown up during the playoffs for the past two years. I think someone is trying to change the way they play and WIN. If I hadn't watched them every game, I'd swear they were impostors during the playoff game with Cleveland.

Rasheed is very emotional and needs to try to tone it down just a little, but he definitely does not need to be traded! He is a perfect fit for the pistons because of the chemistry he has with the other players. I also feels that he needs to stop settling for the 3 pointer sometimes and go down to the box where he does his best work! Finally, I think that Joe Dumars and Flip Saunders need to discipline this guy, that is all it will take and he'll be just fine!

Rasheed is the problem with this team, he keeps us in foul trouble with his kid like attitude and hes the most paid player on the team with $12.5 million. The pistons were amazing with Ben wallace he was te rebounds and blocks ENOUGH SAID. And without him this team is not the 2004 champs or the 2005 eastern conference champions.

Also I am against the pickup of Webber because he shows foul trouble for us too.(Hence the reason why the 76ers threw him in the garbage). We could of made the playoffs with any decent forward. Our bench is filled with talented players that don't get much of a chance. Maybe the pistons should check out some player's from the mavericks or the suns...considering there whole team is talent and wasted talent on the bench. Hopefully the pistons get a good forward for the 15th pick.

I love the Pistons but I am sick of Rasheed. I beleive the refs have it out for him and that I thought he was getting a raw deal when he was ejected from that last playoff game. But as a teammate he has to realize that we were only down 8 with 5 minutes to go. He cost us that game more than flip or chauncey's lack of intesnsity. Move him for whatever we can get. Marion, Kirilinko, or anyone else would be sufficiant. Plus Sheed won't play in the post so when he is running around the hree point line it makes it tougher for rip and billups to get shots off. He is not worth the hassle or the money we are paying him.

Sheed." Needs more selfcontrol and more post play but i would not trade him.The team is great but they need a true leader as a coach.Someone the team can respect,that will do what is needed for the team if it means benching starters or what!"Playing young players giving them growth time on the court during the season play so they can help you in the post season.

Sheed is not the problem. Team structure and leadership is. Without solid slashing offensive skills on a daily basis, its hard for a DEFENSIVE team to "flip" a switch and become an offensive team. Flip has to let them concentrate on being a Defensive UNIT again. Or have Joe Dumars get them the offensive support to play this FLIP style offense ball. DEEtroit is about DEEfense!

Everyone knows sheed is the best all around player even Chauncey, the captain, but if you really want to trade him, at least wait until next year when his expiring contract will give us more value in exchange

I personally do not think sheed is the problem, remember he was like this in portland also, the pistons have never been the pistons since larry brown left, they were tough, strong, stingy and would not let a fake king come strolling to the basket at anytime, bring larry brown back and watch the pistons turn back into beasts again..

If you know anything about Basketball than you would know that you keep the big man right here in Detroit. Rasheed is a great guy that you need on your team. Yeah sometime he get into the game in a wrong way and he should keep his cool, but for most part he still make things happen. Look Rasheed has gotten better every year and will get even better this year. I can see that he learning to keep his head and that will get us back to were we belong. WORLD CHAMPS!!!! Thanks Rasheed.

Don't you remember the Grant Hill Pistons when we couldn't get a decent power forward or center? At this point our roster consists of Muhammed, McDyess, Maxiell, and Johnson at the Power forward and center positions other than Wallace. Wallace is by far the best of the list at this point. You can't give up Rasheed for youth because we have that in Max and Amir (and possibly Samb). Muhammed barely played last year due to his abilities and efforts. McDyess is great off the bench. but is too old to play starter minutes any more.
You want to give up our best post defender and scorer when we would be without a starting Center or Power Forward! That makes no sence at all.
Rasheed is an aging talent with a lot of ability left. If you want to trade him it better be for a big with equal ability or possibly 2 bigs that could start or the Pistons could be back to the big man limbo that we were in 10 years ago.

Sheed got to riled up over small stuff in portland, anger would just put him over top time and time again. I always thought the core reason, he simply didn't like living and playing on west coast, so far from roots. Most thought he would excel in Detroit as he has. Most of his rage has calmed down with age and maturity. Pistons are rock solid and hope they win 60+ games. Good luck.

For the umpteenth time, the Pistons didn't lose last year b/c of Sheed, but because of Flip Saunders. Didn't learn a thing from game 4, didn't adjust the defense in the 2nd half of game 5, and didn't have the leadership to get the team together when they were giving up. Chuck Daly and Phil Jackson dealt with Dennis Rodman -- in fact, Rodman was key in both Detroit and Chicago championships. Get a coach who can bring it and keep it together, or the Pistons are looking at another decade of rebuilding.
