    We got to win this one, Dallas are the worst team of the top 9 in the west IMO..
    They will miss playoffs this year, gotta feel sorry for Dirk.

    Jason Terry has been playing like he is somebody else. They no longer have Diop, but Daimper still sucks.

    I know, it's awesome. I'm so glad we made the trade, because Chauncey fans were too slow, complacent, and couldn't defend the fans of other point guards against penetration.

    very funny, how ever CB fans could jump on other players fans in crunch time 3 times better. Also, they proved to be much better in throughing their free ideas (FT) on other fans.

    Not sure about the crunch time comparison -- I'd say that CB fans and AI fans are both good fans to have on your forum in crunch time, just in different ways. But you are definitely right that these AI fans can't shoot ft's or 3s like the chauncey fans. The Chauncey fans also have a higher assist to turnover ratio.

    On a more personal note, I like the way that all the AI fans chew their mouthguards like toothpicks.

    I desperately need this early game. Hopefully it is all over before 10 so I can get a good night's sleep. :)

    Somewhere, Walter Sharpe is thinking the exact same thing.

    I totally forgot about the ace up the Pistons sleeve tonight in Walter Herrmann. Dirk Nowitzki is like the anti Walter Sharpe. He ain't slept in days!

    well, record-wise, the pistons are one less loss better than dallas.

    when you look at the talent, it's amazing that they aren't winning
    more. nowitzki, howard, terry, and kidd are playing like they're supposed
    to. they just haven't been the same since wade broken them down two
    years ago, and the west is so deep that the other teams ahead of them
    SHOULD be ahead of them.

    pistons definitely have an advantage at the guard positions. i'd let
    ivo guard kidd and let stuck guard wright. kidd's offense is nill. he
    still gets tons of assists and rebounds, but
    when he scores it's pure luck. he has no confidence in his shot. i expect
    ivo to take advantage of the lack of required defense.

    dallas has been letting teams shoot anything, and the pistons have more
    than enough scorers to punish them.

    dampier's soft in the center, nowitzki ain't great on D, and howard and
    prince should cancel each other out.

    WIN THIS GAME, DETROIT!

    (rolling on the floor, laughing out loud)

    Screw Rip, Walt Herrmann should be the FIRST guy off of the bench tonight against Dirk!

    If MC had any kind of a sense of humor, he'd do this!

    Dirk is really hot right now.... he made 3 difficult contested jumpers over Amir and then proceeded to miss a wide open jumper at the top of the key.

    Funny game basketball is sometimes.

    The battle of the two teams that traded away their star PG's :nopompom:

    Terry/Rip get to go at eachother. This first quarter is kinda irritating. Since AI is doing absolutely nothing, why not put in Rip ? This isn't going to work if Curry doesn't show flexibility.

    edited to add; so he takes Stuckey out. Curry has some serious man love going on.

    Bynum, bla
