    The Pistons attempt to defeat the Wiz for the second time this season. Washington is playing without their starting center, Brendan Haywood and Gilbert Arenas.

    There is a game tonight folks!

    No comments? The Wiz do look a ittle more inspired after firing Jordan. We all know with the Pistons facing one of the worst teams does not guarantee a win!

    If we lose this the next step is the 5 guard starting lineup.

    Arnie has an herbal blend and a s t r e t c h routine designed to grow our guards into forwards. Will Bynum used to be 4'2''.

    So um are Amir and Max never going to play now? IIRC, Max eats many babies against WAS.

    JMax and Amir with DNP's at the half, Hermann with 10 minutes. Haven't been able to catch too many games, did they play themselves out of the rotation or is Curry just trying something different?

    With an 8 point deficit in the 4th. I'm ready to see who gets thrown under the bus after this game. I remember when we got our 4th win, We still had Chauncey. Washington should get their 4th tonight. :greenapple:

    I think sadly Curry might be an idiot. I'm really trying to hold off judgment, but between his obsession with short people, and very questionable lineups i'm having a hard time giving him the benefit of the doubt right now.

    The small line-up sucks, and it's only somewhat successful when Sheed is in.

    With Amir in the SL 4-0; W/O Amir = bad. If you took him out b/c it was wearing on Sheed to play center, your solution is to play Sheed at center as our only big ?

    Kwame also plays fantastic against his former teams, and IIRC was lighting up the Wiz last time. He's a DNP as well. I really don't understand why all your bigs are being benched. Do we not care about rebounding ?

    Between AI's defense on the pick and roll, and our 6'7 and under line-ups, i think i need to refrain from watching the games and maybe stick to the box score. It's alot less frustrating that way.

    I just don't understand what it is we're trying to accomplish. And i really want to know where the superstar that we traded for is b/c i don't see him on this team. In fact i think he might be in DEN. All in all, my basic opinion is WTF?!

    edited to add;

    If this continues what's Joe D going to do? Trade some more ? Seems like an asinine solution. Sadly, i think it's nearing the point where Joe D should trade himself.

    edited to add again (i love this button); If Sheed is blamed in the press after this game, i will scream.

    At first Dumars has to admit that he is responsible. He screwed thing up.

    I have also withheld my comment on this TRADE but I do not see how MC will merge AI to team. Too tough nut for cracking. More frightening is how Rip already has found his groove but it absolutely does not affect AI and vice versa. I mean: Rip gets more good looks from Stuckey.

    Trying to rise an issue on D is absolutely hopeless. Both tay and rip are in D OK but their efforts are nullified by AI and Stuckey.

    Welcome to teal era.

    i'll let you all discuss among yourselves and save it for the podcast, which i will participate in 2 weeks. we all saw the game.

    i don't see how you can pin any of this on Rip. he's over his grieving.
