    Note the early start time. going to be the 1st bill on ESPN's Friday night NBA show.

    tv: ESPN, WDIV

    The Bulls are 5-11 and 2-7 on the road. Don't let that fool you as they always bring their A-Games when the face the Pistons. They would probably easily be 50+ winners if they played every team like they play us.

    Another chance to see Ben Wallace.

    Last time we played them, Tyron Thomas killed us. Expect to see him playing more minutes than Big Ben.

    Tyron Thomas has something like Tyson Chandler's built. Tall and long. Watch out for those offensive bounds.

    Yeah, we need to chill these cats out. make sure they know who's boss.
    They're still cryin' like little boys for being trade bait for Kobe.
    I can't shoot straight because you might trade me. I'm so shook up and distraught.

    Looking at the all-star ballot the other night. Right know there are 3 players playing SF that are pretty much a lock over Tayshaun
    1. LeBron
    2. Caron Butler- Dude is a monster this year.
    3. Paul Pierce - You know the "Big3" are virtual locks.
    Now Tay can make this team but there are a few players he's in a dead heat with, one happens to be Luol Deng. This is a great chance for Tay to make an all-star statement. Shut Deng down and drop about 17/6rbs/5ast, that may help Tay get to the all-star game. Hopefully he'll handle it better than [STRIKE]Mobley and Francis [/STRIKE]Hollywood and Broadway did.

    it ws Chicago Bulls who stopped our Winning streak at the begining of the season. Pistons should have some revenge thinking here.

    Could be a tough game for us tonight.

    The Bulls always get up for us led by Big Ben.

    I wonder how many Cabrera T-Shirts will be worn in the Palace tonight.

    He's got Dyess' number

    :hoops:

    In my opinion, he is just being PC, by saying that he doesn't regret moving on. After all how would his teammates and Bulls management react if Big Ben came out and said.

    Yea, I regret every leaving the Pistons and coming to the Bulls"

    No, I think not. But, I would bet that that is what he says to himself when no one is listening and will put in his memoirs or auto biography if he ever writes one after he has retired.

    Big Ben knows his mistake

    :hoops:

    That's a manipulative title to that article.

    If he could do it over again, he'd still go to Chicago. Nothing he said in that article convinced me otherwise.

    Why do you think that?

    There are two reasons I can think of for him making the same decision knowing what he knows today.

    1. He didn't like Flipper and wanted out, which is very possible.
    2. He wanted the extra money, which Joe D. did not offer.

    A third possibility is that he wanted to move to the city of Chicago because of its jazz scene and to ride the El on a regular basis. LOL

    I agree. The money - Flip + the big city. Plus, if his wife decides on his hairdo, then think how much pull she has on decisions like this.

    And the Bulls matched up against us last year, so it wasn't like he was going to a bad team. He probably thought they'd be better than Det.

    His ego got the best of him in 2 ways:

    1. The contract size put him in the superstar income bracket.
    2. He was hailed by many as the "missing piece" that would take the Bulls to the promised land.

    Rip, Sheed and Chauncey all signed deals for less money than Ben in order to stay with the Pistons.

    Live and learn. That should be the new Bull's marketing slogan this year.

    In listening to 'Horn today, he was surprised as was Ian Eagle that Ben played the entire game the other night and got only 8 rebounds. They thought he has lost his fire. It's a shame, but I wondered if he could keep it up into his 30's like he had.

    Well ESPN is loving it.

    Pistons play like Sisters of Mercy in the first quarter and only give more fodder to the ESPN/Celtic machine.

    Hopefully they will do better in the rest of the way.

    In all honesty they should win this game by 20 plus points. I think they have a soft spot in their heart for Big Ben and don't want to embarrass him on National TV.

    We shall see.
