    What do you expect out of this team next season? Truly I think many people think this team is done and don't expect much out of this team because of the way it ended.

    Do you want me to add an option for "folding the franchise"? :laugh:

    We really can't answer the question until we know what team we are putting on the floor.

    Vote whenever you feel like it. I didn't make this a poll with a time limit to vote.

    Reve do you think Miami and Cavs will make it to the East Finals next year?

    I voted champs because that's what I want to see. I refuse to believe it's impossible. If the 35-5 team that started the season wasn't the real Pistons, then neither was the 4-7 team that ended it. Next season, we will see a team that is once again built for the playoffs.

    So take that, doubters.

    Hope you're right Lurker. GO PISTONS!

    You have to have some luck to win a championship and this year we didn't have that.

    I think we'll get to the finals. I feel the west is going to be incredibly strong next year, but then again it always is.

    I will vote on this once we find out what happends with Ben Wallace. Pistons cannot win without him. Without Wallace we are just a very average defensive team and our offense is not good enough to carry us.

    I'd be glad if they played Fino, AJ and JMax about 10-15mpg. I don't care about W's, I don't want the MVP- chants for any player. I don't want no 4 all stars, I wouldn't mind if there was no allstar on our team. I'd be glad if we reach the playoffs as the second, third, fourth- seeded team but hungry as a lion who hadn't eaten for years. Be glad if the bench battles the starters for minutes. If none of the starting 6 can relax since he knows he hasn't got to fear the bench players to take minutes away from him.
    After the perforcmances against Miami and Cleveland, I'm not naive enough to expect a ship or the finals. But that doesn't stop me from hoping.

    Good post. I hope the bench gets the chance and I think Joe made it clear to Flip that he wants these guys played.
