hey! must admit I am all for the pistons whipping on those Cavs but if i want anyone to win it all its the cavs or pistons...but lebron is just out of order. I was expecting so much more from him. He was not aggressive at all. I know everyone dogs Kobe but he needs to take a little more control like Kobe. You are a great player so act like it! But regardless, in the end: Detroit Pistons will be on top cause we all know its DETROIT BASKETBALL!!!!! have a good day and we will be seeing you tonight!
IT TAKES TIME DONT GIVE UP ON LBJ. HE IS SO MUCH MORE THAN HE WAS LAST YEAR. AND I DO NOT THINK DETROIT CAN KEEP HIM TO JUST TEN POINTS AGAIN. I WANT TO SEE SOME OF THAT PICK AND ROLL BETWEEN ANDY AND LBJ. GOOOO LAKERS. LOVE KOBE. YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE ALL THE STUFF PEOPLE SAY ABOUT OUR LAKERS AND KOBE. BUT WE STAY FAITHFUL. ALWAYS. NBA FOREVER

Hey Mcnutt, dont change the subject...What does Detroit have besides hockey? Tell me, you half-bred Canadian joke. We'll see if Sheed does more good than harm to your team in this series. We already know he cant guard Anderson Varejao, and if a call goes against him he acts like his shock collar is beeping. Wonder how long itll take for him to get ejected? 2nd quarter tonight?
Just try to contain your bowels when Lebron drops a 40-10-9 tonight and the Cavs come rolling back to Cleveland with the homecourt advantage. Be afraid, be very afraid.
Seriously though, the Tigers lost to who? St Louis, of the worst division in the worst conference in baseball? The Cards are the Buffalo Bills of baseball, so I guess that makes the Tigers who, the Detroit Lions? Sad, but at least Barry Sanders knew enough to just retire rather than waste his immense talent in a city that sucks at life. Good decision,#20. And at least your franchises arent cursed with some of the worst GM's in the business. Darko over Wade, anyone? Joe Dumars makes Matt Millen look like Billy Beane.
Detroit is french for DETOUR.
GO CAVS!!
Change the subject? You still havn't told me what Cleveland team can compare to any of the Detroit teams? I don't mind you trying to bash my city and all that, but the facts are the facts. Sheed can't guard Mop Top because he's hardly in the game. You know you are worried about Rasheed blowing a gasket because that's when he plays his best basketball (see Chicago series). Bottom line is, jealousy is a result of when someone has what somebody else wants, and Cleveland wants to be the new Detroit. Took a guy from MI to buy the franchise so that the city could stand to watch a 48 minute game. Don't hate on over 5 years of playoff consistency. I'd like to be in Cleveland when we closeout on your home floor. Like Chauncey said, "It will be like church, very quiet." Best road team in the east (again, see Chicago).

Cleveland might ALREADY be better than the Pistons, the Indians will take the Central, and as bad as the Browns have been, the Lions have definitely been worse. At least the Browns had to start from scratch in order to suck. The Lions have been in the worst division in the NFL for years now and still cant do better than 6-10. The Tigers took a steaming dump in the world series last year, one that probably makes you wish they hadnt even been there.

As for your Pistons, sucks to get old, huh? Chauncey is gone after this year, Sheed is a piece of crap, and you DEFINITELY miss Big Ben. Who guards Z? What happens when the Cavs start nailing those wide open shots? What happens when Lebron starts lighting up the paint like a Xmas tree?

...the answer, of course, is the Pistons go home, and Lebron becomes the dynasty killer that Jordan was, only 4 years earlier in his career. Sleep with one eye open, Detour. Game over.

My dear brother Josh, if this were a test, you definitely would have failed. I asked, what has a Cleveland team done in the last 5 years to trump any Detroit team? Your responses are of those that "could have, might have been or what ifs". "If" you could have Sheed, you would take him in a heartbeat over Drew No-Gooden. You guys would have been better off just keeping Flip Murray, but he knew the ship was sinking and decided to "cross the lake". You guys better hurry up and make a decision as to whether you want to keep Mike "do-do" Brown or the "team", LBJ, because both can't stay in Cleveland AND expect to win. However, I think James is gone. He even likes the Pistons.

In your wettest dreams, Canada West. Lebron will be haunting you for years, just like Mike. Actually, if you'd like to keep revising history, that's fine, but any moron can scan up to your previous post and see that your actual quote was "You still havn't told me what Cleveland team can compare to any of the Detroit teams?" and I compared them, accurately.

Mike Brown and Lebron James will both be tasting the NBA finals for the first time..courtesy of your ancient pistons. Thanks, and come again soon. It's 8 pm and Michigan still sucks.
