    Pistons off to a great start. I think they realize that home courst advantage is helpful.

    [​IMG] Maybe I am mistaken here....but didn't San Antonio win the championship last year...and doesn't that make them the best?

    Seriously...the Pistons do look really good so far this year.

    Yeah, I remember being told on this board last season during the playoffs that the Pistons were the best, were a sure thing to win the championship, blah, blah, blah.

    Pistons? Isn't that the team better known as the "Thugs of Auburn Palace"?

    Only place they are famous is on the posters on the wall of the post office . . .

    (BTW, I'm not a piston fan)

    Yes and we must remind him that though SA won it took seven games to do so, and that from a very tired worn out Detroit team. Imagine if the Pistons had been up to full streangth.

    Its amazing how the Pistons have maintained there defensive identity while integrating Flip Saunders offense. As a result they are not only Playing Detroit Basketball, but also shooting the lights out of there opponents. Now where are all those naysayer claiming Detroit can't score?

    Anyhow, I hope to be able to get out to he Palace somtime soon for a game.

    4HIS_Glory,
    Just wanted to get the Detroit haters going. I am looking forward to this year.
    I think you are right Detroit came in tired and the two teams are so close that any advantage is going to make a big difference. They split a game during the season and won by one in the playoffs so it ain't that bad. Doesn't look like Indiana or Miami is going to make it unless they pull themselves to gether. Hey if you make a game let me know. Try to catch up with ya.

    Excuses, excuses.

    Detroit had the same opportunity to beat Miami in as many games as San Antonio took to dispatch Phoenix, and they didn't get it done. Maybe they went in tired, but you play with what you have and the situation that you're in, and the Spurs beat them fair and square. Besides, if there are excuses to be made, consider that if Dwayne Wade hadn't gotten hurt, the Pistons wouldn't have even made The Finals.

    Detroit fans, you can say that the Spurs were a better team in the 2005 Finals. Really. It won't kill you. [​IMG]

    Would have been nice to have the same attitude last year.
    Read over last years thread what a hoot. Did enjoy most of it. Someone, I think it was KenH or JimmyC said that the miami game would wear on Detroit. I thought it would make no difference. Then when I saw Ben get his second wind against SA in the last two wins I thought, it was true. I like a team to be healthy and all things equial as much as possible. Then let the talent shine through.
    Who are you calling it for this year? You sticking with SA?

    Hey don't make me go back and post all the excuses being made last year.......

    ccrobinson

    Shaq's health is crucial to whether Miami can win the series. With him, they can and I think they will. Without him, they don't have enough firepower to overcome the Piston's D.

    And afterwards they lost because "shaq and Wade were hurt."

    Oh how soon the self rightoues forget. ;)

    I think Detroit is the best team in the East, and as I stated earlier they have looked great this year so far.

    In the west I think San Antonio, Dallas, and Phoenix all have a shot.

    I think this might be the year Dallas can get over the hump. But it should be a great year of basketball.

    I thought you were talking about the Pistons. The Spurs have the trophy which proves they are were the best in 2005. I see no reason why they won't be the best in 2006 as well. But, then again, that's why they play the games. We'll find out in about six months.

    Timtoolman,

    If you want to quote me, then I would appreciate it if you used what I actually said instead of making it up. I went searching and found the thread where I wrote this.

    "Shaq's health is crucial to whether Miami can win the series. With him, they can and I think they will. Without him, they don't have enough firepower to overcome the Piston's D."

    After the Miami-Detroit series, I didn't write so much as one word about it. I certainly didn't make any excuses about Miami losing. Miami lost because they weren't good enough to win. With Wade, they still hadn't won the series once he got hurt and without him, they did lose.

    You quoted me, made up the rest of it and then called me self-righteous because of what you made up. I don't appreciate it at all.

    LOL, if, if, if Miami is this, if Miami does this....this is still called excuses. You are worse cause you made em before the game. However the bottom line is excuses. You used em and then jumped on others. Get over yourself
