Now, it's Pistons against Lakers. I am from near Detroit. I'm solid Pistons fan. Long time ago, during winter time in Janaury 2004, I aware of L.A. Lakers are a very dangerous team. Despite the injuries of Lakers players in the first half of the season. Also despite of Kobe's trial. Lakers still a dangerous team, because Lakers have Karl Malone and Payton. Lakers are so very powerful team. Shaq is a giant player like as football player. No one can stop Shaq from scoring, he is so powerful and huge. Kobe is a speed player, he can moving around and shooting. Lakers is a speed team. Pistons is NBA's top defense team. They held teams scoring under 70 points - 13 times this season. PIstons playing so very rough and aggressive. Big Ben and Rasheed Wallace both are big for defensive. One thing that I disagree with Joe Dumars, the President of Detroit Pistons, of his made decision to choose a player from Europe over Anthony from Syracuse U. Orangemen from last year draft. Because Pistons need offensive and weapon so badly. Pistons' defense is great, but their shooting is awful terrible. That why I want Anthony of Syracuse Orangemen because of offensive. I guess that Dumars focus on defense than offensive because of his experinced played with Pistons for 14 seasons, include won two titles of 89' and 90'. IF Pistons pick Antony, FOR SURE, Pistons could have a powerful team in NBA. Also, I strong disagree with Dumars' made decision for fired Rick Carlisle as coach of Pistons from last year after Pistons were sweept by Nets. I like Rick Carlisle, he's a good coach. But, I think Dumars make a wise moving for Pistons to hired Larry Brown. Also, I believe Dumars made a HUGE decision for trade two players to accquire Rasheed Wallace. That help Pistons into a successful team and lead to 2004 NBA Finals. I aware of Lakers are a very dangerous team. Can Pistons beat Lakers? Think positive, yes Pistons can do it. By playing smart and aggressive. I don't care about how big Shaq is. Pistons can find figure ways to beat Lakers by playing HARDER and more aggressive. I believe 2004 NBA Finals could be into Game 6 or 7. This serioes would be tough and hot. I am Pistons fan. I pick Pistons in Game 6 over Lakers in L.A. Pistons are so good on the road. Pistons beat Nets on the road by down 3-2 of the series, and then won the series. Pistons were in big trouble while loss against Pacers at the Place last Friday. Because Pacers have a good chance to win the series because of its home advantage. But I was surprised Pistons took Pacers' home advantage game away TWICE! Can Pistons do it again at Staples Center in L.A.? Possible. Wait and see. GO PISTONS!!!!!!!!! In Christ Rev. 22:20-Amen p.s. by the way, I saw Richard "Rip" Hamilton played smart and dirty against Ron Artest in the fourth quarter within about 4 minutes left. First, I saw Rip shoveled Artest's chest, then when Artest moving backward little bit, Rip then ran toward Artest again and caused Artest bumped him led into flagant foul. Ron Artest was innocent, he doing nothing with Rip. Oh well, Rip is a "Bad Boy" of Dennis Rodman. GO PISTONS!!!!!!
