    I'm with Tater. If the Pistons ran through the entire playoffs with every single series being this "boring" (which obviously isn't going to happen), I wouldn't mind it one bit.

    We were the only team to score 100 points in the first game of the first round. I thought higher scoring = excitement.

    Orlando just doesn't have any players that the general populus wants to see lose. They are nice guys with a sub .500 record who can't compete with a veteran team. Like it or not, that really is the recipe for a boring series.

    The next series could be the highlight of the playoffs though! Det/Chi or Det/Mia would both have some storylines.

    I think the next series is Detroit and Chicago and I suggest that all you people who are bored :bored:should bring an extra pair of drawers to those games.

    I remember being in chat for game one with Orlando. If I recall correctly, a few people were pretty nervous there at the end of the game. I guess they are they same people that like going on those amusement park roller coaster rides. Those rides are a ball...unless and until they derail...:scared:

    I hear what you guys are saying, but I just want to win. That, in itself is very exciting to me.

    what about we win this series in 6 games? this could be an early warning that nothing can come easy. What happened last year was the extra confidence the Pistons had. They thought they can win any game any moment the turn the switch. I am ok with losing two games in this series.

    You shouldn't expect anything out of a series like this. That it's living up to the lowest possible expectations is itself boring.

    The Pistons are doing the least possible to get a win, and I don't mean that they're being efficient; they're just trying to get through 48 minutes at a time against a team they seriously outclass.

    For many our first extended look at DarkoBall. Let Darko go for 30 with a Piston loss and Magic fan will commit Har-Kari in delight. Leave me alone.

    Not necessarily here. On talk radio a few days ago everyone was excited because of all the ex-Pistons and the fact that it was not Milw again. Then after game #2 it became boring.

    If you are the #1 seed you are supposed to win the 1st 2 home games. it will be a little harder in Orlando, Howard/Hill will get more calls, someone will get hot.

    Be carefull what you wish for. Blew NJ out in the 1st 2 homes games back in 04. Not saying that will happend again.

    Compared to what the reg season was like this is much more interesting.

    I don't think it will be possible for Hill to get more calls. The referees were treating him like royalty in Game 2. :)

    Postgame presser audio. I like to listen to these in the background as I work.

    It will get worse over there. Pistons can handle it though. Game 3 will be the toughest but if its too bad the league will tell them to cool it. Lets hope we get a good ref crew.
