Discussion in '2008 Playoffs' started by max, May 29, 2008.
We really need Sheed and/or Prince to step up.
Max isn't helping. Both Max and Prince seem like they are sedated.
The defense has been really undisciplined. Boston is just breaking them down at will...
Chauncey and Rip have been inspiring though.
I don't understand why Tay won't work Pierce on the block...
SHEEEEDDDDDDDDDD please.....start to play
half 37 40 this match is impossible to lose
My dog just vomited on my foot, it was more enjoyable than that first half.
C$ and Rip are pressing. Sheed and Tay are nothing'ing.
How has Theo survived in this league so long? He makes so many baaaaaad plays....,.
better yet... when was the last time garnett was called for the moving pick he does atleast every other poss?
Pistons in big trouble. Down 7, 2,30 to go.
Massive 4th Q meltdown.
Fingers crossed until the buzzer...
that's it. Dumars has some work to do. But I do not believe that something remarkable happens before draft day.
That's the deal, Sheed must go and we will see JMax take his place or Amir.
Deja vu. I didn't even watch the 4th. As soon as the lead melted away, I knew it was done. I think Billups, Hamilton, McDyess and the young guys are the only ones I'd protect. Sheed and Prince whithered under pressure again. Other teams continue to pass them by. I honestly hope the Celtics beat the Lakers. You guys (and gals) may puke, but I think Garnett deserves a ring. I won't watch the games, though. The media love-fest will make me puke.
Flip has to go along w/ atleast 1 or 2 starters. The better team won in this series. Clearly not having a go to guy down the stretch is an issue w/ a team built on a balanced attack. No one can be counted on to step up and make plays and will the team to a W over the course of a series. On first blush, I would say Tay and Sheed should be considered as trade bait, but am too numb to think. Most every team in the last 30 years have had a superstar, only the Pistons have won on the team concept. The championship window with this core is CLOSED. Disappointed but not surprised, this is the limit of the Pistons ability. Can't win when your best players don't show up to play night in and night out.
To lose a home playoff game with Benett Salvatore as the ref is really something else. Losing when Tay does what Tay does best, holding the ball for no reason. Losing when Sheed leaves the O at home, when CB misses free throws and when Flip won't stand up for his players.
I have never seen so many O fouls called on players shooting jump shots like BOS was and DET still lost. DET actually looked like an NBA team with the calls they were getting at home, but it wasn't enough. "2 games is us" should be the motto next year. I am sure we'll see plenty of bravado in February.
S-U-M-M-E-R L-E-A-G-U-E! S-U-M-M-E-R L-E-A-G-U-E!! S-U-M-M-E-R L-E-A-G-U-E!!!
I at first was ready to light myself on fire thinking of the C's in the Finals, but in the end I think I am glad. The C's deserved to win in the end and DET did not. I don't remember the Bullets or Sonics strutting around in 1985 after they won in the late 70's once.
I thought the Pistons had it won after the 3rd quarter, but wow, what a complete meltdown. 29-13 in the 4th? On your home floor?!
Blame Flip all you want, but I think that quarter made it clear that this team can't get over the hump without some real changes across the board. Maybe they do need a different coach, but this group of players is obviously not good enough to make the Finals again.
The better team won this series. It's not what we wanted, but it was fun hanging out with everyone this season.
Give it up to the Celts. it looked like the ref's were gonna help the p's and they came back. the P's couldn't take advantage.
Pretty sad ending. Boston deserved to win. Congratulations to the Celtics.
I replied to an email from Matt Watson @ DBB this week, mentioning that Flip has finally figured out how to coach in the playoffs, but he'll probably be fired.
Go figure. Tonight was very disappointing. Dice, Rip and CB were the only vets who showed any heart. Sheed was an absolute embarassment, and Tayshaun has to go. This is the second year in a row that he has come up empty handed in the conference finals. And it's not just missing shots, but being passive and playing scared on defense.
But Sheed has to go. I'd keep Dice. He's expensive, but he has another good season in him yet. Unless he wants a trade that is.
End of an era. I have an awkward feeling of relief and disgust.
Their D was just too bad in the end. Don't let the score fool you, that is late in the series talking on the scoreboard. The C's got too much penetration and too many easy shots in the end. Like watching them play the Big Ben Bulls, DET was chasing all night long. Pierce got whatever he wanted. DET would bust their ass to get a 2 point lead and BOS would score within 10 seconds.
Game 2! Game 2!! Game 2!!!
They took the game away in the 4th. Sheed and Tay really didn't show the energy or intensity needed. Their shooting was horrendous. We had those guys by ten. Time for LaDre to put some Piston Players on the fishing boat. Start with Tay, Sheed, and Lindsey...........
