    The NBA's thinking man comes to town. Etan Thomas. Poet, rebounder, and last week, he beat the snot out of Brendan Haywood after getting some of his dreadlocks pulled out in a practice scuffle.

    Yeah I read about the 2 fights Etan Thomas had with Haywood in practice. Apparently it was so bad that Haywood cried to his agent and they are trying to demanding he be traded. What a big baby. Man up dude!!:MusicBigGrin:

    1st game of a home back-back.

    Please, please win this game Pistons. The Wiz swept the series last year against the Stones, and I am still hearing about it.

    The way this season is going that`s all I need is for the Pistons to lose to the Wiz.

    Have some freaking pride Pistons..and don`t let folks come into your house and kick that arse too.............Please, win this one for me....:help:

    We got swept by them last season with our best team. Yeah, maybe we can win a game or two against them this season with our 'can't find identity' team now.

    Wonder how many points will Arenas score this time....

    I'm gonna say 45 points.

    He's been in a shooting slump lately and our defense is probably just what the doctor ordered.

    Lets see how many times Arenas drives through the lane and scores or gets fouled.

    Ok, a win. And we can see a bit more of the picture. Rip and Tay are our two main guys: our two stars who are young by NBA standards. Tay as the focal point of the offense produced 3 of 4 in the tough last few minutes down on the low block. This is where we will continue to be strong. We cut off of Tay. Tay went to the hoop. Tay froze their defense. This can happen again as long as we work off of him.

    The offense we usually play is just a one on one--go to who is hot and ride it out. This type of offense will always break down and last spring was no fluke. We don't have the players to play that way. Play book? Haven't ever seen one...

    We need to play Nasr to help Sheed down low. We are getting nada from Dyss and Sheed needs help. Sheed's defense has been good considering what he is being asked to do.

    Hunter was our bench tonight. He is 36 years old. We need to play him and ask management to get our main guys some help. This team is still good with a few additions that are not major.

    The coach needs to understand what the strength of the team is... and management needs to get real and get off its behind. This team can contend with the right mix. To not give it the help it needs would be a waste of our still talented core...

    You suggesting they make a trade?

    I liked how the team went down low in the last few minutes and got some decent shots. Good execution, I thought, but I only saw the last four minutes of the game. Can't speak about the first 44.
