Story stays same

If the Detroit Pistons limp into the playoffs, the C's are all set. The good news from last night's 119-93 pounding of the Pistons is that the Celtics did to such a lowly team what they should do.

The Piston's been struggling ever since they traded away their 2 key players:Chauncey Billups and Rasheed wallace.

Losing Billups killed the Pistons. He was a great player for them, and when they announced his trade they announced the end of the Pistons success.

They did have two decent free agent signings, so I'm surprised they are playing so poorly. Their run is over, so it's time to trade away the pieces and start to rebuild. I'm sure they'll go into cost-saving mode soon.

Or get rid of Tayshaun and Richard and make a whole new team.

To be honest with you, if they can't sign a big name free agent this summer then they'll be forced to trade away the team and rebuild from scratch. They can't win with the team they have on the floor right now. Heck, we just swept them for the year for the first time in 30 years or something crazy like that. That tells you how bad the Pistons are.

Yup.Its crazy how one player can have an impact on the team.

I would say that Billups was their leader, even though the Pistons didn't realize that. I mean, when it came down to crunch time, he was so clutch. I hated him for it because he was just so darn good. Even if he played for a team like the Kings, I would worry about playing them just because they had Billups.

Now that would be a player that you guys would be lucky to have. Billups. I wouldn't mind seeing him in a Cavs uniform.

I think that your current roster will have a major overhaul if you do land one of the major free agents. Right now they're in cost-saving mode. Once they get a piece they can win with, they'll switch over to win-now mode and get rid of a lot of the old pieces.

They cant trade Chris Duhon,David Lee,Tracy Mcgrady,Eddie House,and Al Harrington,they need to get back Jamal Crawford.

When it comes to the Knicks, I'll defer to your authority. Lol. I've been pretty distracted with the Cavs this year so I'm not up on all the other teams as much as I usually am.

Yeah, I usually follow all the teams, but certain years I don't keep up on the competition as much as I usually do.

Watching a loser is never fun. You have some pieces to build with, but you do need better players. And I heard that you're losing your first round pick either this year or next to the Jazz because of a trade good 'ol Isiah made a few years back. It's amazing to think you're still paying for bad moves years later.

No, no, I'm not calling your team losers. I use the term loser to describe a team that struggles to stay around .500 consistently year after year. I'm past the whole name calling thing at this point so I should have explained what I meant.

Remember that I'm a Cleveland fan and you'll know where I'm coming from. I'm all for supporting my team, but there comes a point where your team needs to field a decent product or its just depressing every game (ever see the movie Major League?). I can't tell you how many Browns games last year would start off with all of us Browns fans hoping for the best, and then getting upset and angry by halftime when they stunk again. And it wasn't even good sucking, it was some of the worst football I've seen ever. I'm a Browns fan, a Cavs fan, and an Indians fan even though for the vast majority of years these teams have not fielded a competitive team. So when I say it's no fun to watch a loser, it is really hard and no fun to watch the team you love so much get crushed game after game after game. It gets depressing after a while. You still watch them because they're your team and you support them, but that doesn't mean you won't get upset with the direction they're going or feel down when it's another crushing defeat.

So I'm not speaking to insult your team, I'm speaking as a Cleveland sports fan. I've watched a loser most of my sports life, so I have vast experience in this area and can say for sure it's no fun to watch a loser. That's why Cavs fans have enjoyed the last two years so much - we've never had a time like this where we were the favorite and ranked #1. I mean, we've been cellar-dwellers or underdogs every year - but to be #1 is a first for us.

I hope that clarifies.
