well sheed if you are around and afew others,its
going to be about anew attitude about this team
you are akey player to this team,and do need u
i watched your game from portland to the d, and i
know on any given night u can be the man,you got to stay focused,stop letting the bad calls by the refs get to you play on, ucould be the best center inthe game if u controlled your anger,i love u bro,the only thing wrong with your groop is u guysgot to play like that pit bull,in the ring,when they think they got u,bring the second
game to the court,u guys got to devote yourseves
into working harder,to keep the energy ,when u have ateam down u dontstart taking long jump shots
u post up ,and drive the ball,untill u break the spirit of a team,u guys let this team get away using your own style of play,no defense ,rebounding beat yourselves

Rasheed wallace is one of the main reasons y the pistons haven't won another championship. he lets his mouth run, not his game half the time and thats been a big distraction for the rest of the team that came to play. if we could get ride of him and trade for a big man we have the superstars and the role players. I don't think they told rasheed but i will no bitchassnes. your not that good anymore way over rated and have been. you were ok when ben wallace was there but now you think that you are better then everyone and that you don't have to work for it on the court.

sheed is the man yeah he needs to stay focused but his knowledge of the game isn't matched. he has and will continue to teach the younger pistons what and where on the court.. with a true center his threes dont hurt as much [thats when he not on] plus he can and is willing to "post up more] if the offense was catered to him more

Hey You Guys,We all know Shed has a big ass mouth
but if the boy is focused he's unstopable. I hope Joe Dumars doesn't trade Sheed cause whose he going to get to replace him? A young rookie that doesn't know whats going on.

Sheed needs his walking papers enough is enough, people get fired every day for less, here is a super star that cries like a baby at the wrong times, NBA finals, year after year, Dumars will send him packing, with something in return that will bring Detroit a real chance in June! Always remember Sheed got paid millions to run his mouth as the State of Michigan needs encouragement and support, not a cry baby!

I think one reason he was their was to send a message to Joe D, saying he really does want to stay on the pistons, despite his enthusiasm during the Celtics series.

Wallace is the reason that we won the one championship.

Without Sheed coming here, we don't have a championship, we don't re-sign Bill-ups, Prince doesn't develop as much as he did... About the only thing we might have is a team with chances to make the playoffs with a Darko that had pt to develop, and a lot of angry fans in Michigan...

But we did get a championship, an olympian (almost 2) And 6 straight Conf finals and still a lot of angry fans in Michigan. Michigan has been spoiled with with a few good teams. Can you imagine IZZO going to 6 straight final fours and getting Fired.

I enjoy being able to watch one of my teams into May and June every year. Do you think any Garnette-missing-Timberwolves fan is even thinking about planning a playoff party anytime soon?

Trading Sheed and Billups is like replacing Carr with Rod. Folks in Toronto and Orlando will love it like Buckeye fans do right now.(Look at recruiting) Maybe 5 years from now I will Say I was Wrong. But in the Immediate Future, Detroit is not ready for a re-building Pisons just like Wolverine Fans Are not ready to start fresh. Rebuilding is what the Lions are for; They been doing it my entire life.

Bring them all back with Curry for the 7th straight.

dats true... sheed they paying you million and u need to be focus on the game... go on the block and post up.... u can shoot 3 sometimes but not all the time... bring back the real wallace... the real deal... it's ok to complain about the call but u and billups need to score... where's the mr. big shot now? what's up with that.... i thought it would be a back to back championship for detroit... i guess it's just a one hit wonder... go out and play like a pro....

If rasheed play the way that he can, then the piston's is going to be champions again. Going to the Eastern finals six stright times is no fluke. Breaking up the 'core' is not the answer. Play the right way in june is.

Rasheed seems to set the tempo for the team but his complaining disrupts everything. He is very talented and i'd like to see him finish his career in Detroit but his attitude can be detrimental to the team.

If he stays i hope they do what needs to be done.
