    I don't hate LeBron. I hate Super Stars. Detroit is a factory town. Everyone pulls their weight. It's an assembly line thing. We love the well-oiled machine. It's the all about the team and the parts that fit togeter. When a great team beats a star, it reaffirms your life view. It's like the car beating the horse.

    Agreed. Most times though a superstar is part of the mix.................

    Gordie Howe, Bobby Layne, Barry Sanders, Miggy Cabrera, Denny McClain, Isiah Thomas, Steve Yzerman, Rodney Stuckey.

    Nemo deserves a Ban for puting Suckey with the rest of those names.

    Seeing Yzerman's name next to Rodney made me think that Stuckey picked the wrong sport. His collider instincts and tendency to always look down could've made him a top notch NHL player.

    Looking down was what killed Lindros career.

    If we had one though I am sure we would like him. Have not really had a real superstar since Isiah. Of course he is banned from the Palace so who knows.

    I thought of him. He was certainly an all-star but never made it out of the 1st round and was never the same after the ankle injury.

    Stackhouse was pretty close to a Superstar for a season or two.

    Grant Hill had potential........but so did Stuckey and Darko, oh, never mind.
    3 careers that frustrated me.
