There are 3 comments on the Orlando Sentinel story from May 5, 2008, titled Detroit's Ratliff and Orlando's Lewis have war of words after a.... In it, Orlando Sentinel reports that:

Pistons veteran Theo Ratliff was kind of amused to see young teammate Jason Maxiell rush to his defense after he was fouled hard by Orlando's Rashard Lewis late in Game 1. Maxiell quickly came to Ratliff's side ...

Lewis is a soft pussyshooter. No sense worrying about him if he gets inside.

Dont ya love Jameer. He's using the old, " I love a challenge" and "I should have shot more against that zone", routine again, lol. Whatta guy!

I actually feel sorry for Dwight. It's a game, and also a brotherhood out there. The Pistons dont want Dwight hurt, and they wont try to aggravate his hand. But they will keep the 3 guys rotating on him. 3 x 6= 18 fouls. 18 free throws for Dwight equals about 6 points, lol.

I love VanGundys thinking. "let's not go do our regular routine guys, let's go down to the Ballroom and dance" Hahahahahaha.
Whatta Coach!

Well, we know that the Pistons have ZERO respect for the magic...not for our center, or any of our point guards, or our uhh power forward who's really a 3 man. Like I've said, our team is good and can win many games over time; but the roster is currently flawed...especially for playoff basketball. We MUST make shots in order to win. That is the makeup of this team. But...even recent teams that were powerhouse scorers like the Suns, Warriors etc., still could not win a championship.

Well for starters, you have to earn respect. The Pistons have MUCH respect for your center. Rip and Mo Evans are great friends. What is difficult is to try to respect players like Rashard Lewis who is so frustrated that he tries to throw Ratliff to the ground. How can you respect that?
The Magic have a good, young team in the making and I believe they will have their time, BUT its not THIS time. Pistons take this series in 5!
