Pistons in 2 over the Celts.
Pistons in 3 over the Spurs. Phantom call(flop) sends Manu to the line in a tie game in G2, only reason it's going to three games.
Vidi, Vici, Veni
Pistons broomed after the abject failure of their new "All isolation, all the time" offense. Highlights include this gem from before game 3:
Reporter: "Coach, where the heck are you going to find enough points to keep from going down 0-3?"
Flip: "AIR HAMILTON. Just give him the ball and get outta the way."
As long as Flip is coaching the Pistons, they will never get back to the Finals.
The moment Flip took over..bam!!...no more D, with or without Big Ben
I don't think SA will be there we will be playing The Suns. Pistons in 5
the asians will takeover michigan and get Yao in a trade for Tayshawn and Rip to lead them to world domination
Lebron didn't go to the rim easily during the Finals vs Spurs.
2004-2005 - 89.5 ppg - 2nd Overall
Pistons defense under Flip:
2005-2006 - 90.2 ppg - 3rd Overall <with Ben>
2006-2007 - 91.8 ppg - 2nd Overall <w/o Ben>
2007-2008 - 89.5 ppg - 2nd Overall <w/o Ben>
Those stats would put us among the NBA's elite for team defense.
Good call lefty.
Did you watch the last 2 ECF?
I don't care about their regular season stats, but in the playoffs, Wade and Lebron went to the rim too easily.
This is were the Spurs are different.
Spurs are different because they are unable to get to the NBA Finals a season after winning a title.
Ok let's make this clear:
- Spurs will repeat
- Pistons won't go to the Finals, because their playoffs D sucks
