And benches win championships!
Without Devean George, Shaq and Kobe would be at 1 and 2 rings respectively.
Give Shannon, Sasha and Farmar credit for getting Kobe and Fisher # 4 & 5
I'm sure Stern doesn't want LeBron getting pelted by batteries. I'm betting they don't play in Cleveland until late next season.
It would be interesting to see what kind of hellcome he'll get in Ohio when Miami plays the Cavs.
They'll have a "Benedict Arnold" Night.
Is this thread REALLY about an exhibition game???
Yes we are.
@ darth tater: we, positive fans, believe that detroit pistons is capable of winning some EXHIBITION games, especially vs Miami - I mean, after 0-16 vs miami during regular season we STILL can say "at least we won exhibition game!"
That's why THIS upcoming game is so helluva important to us!!
The pressure will be on the Heat to win this game to prove to everyone that they can play together. They may experiment and see how the chemistry works in the remaining exposition games, but with cameras rolling and the curiosity factor there, I am sure they will try to win this one for the media if not just for themselves.
I was wrong. Stern DOES want LeBron to get pelted by batteries.

The only ones feeling pressure to succeed in an exhibition game are the ones that don't matter (since in all likelihood they won't be there once the regular season begins).
Yeah, it may be a media circus since it is newsworthy even when the mighty Lebroz runs out of toilet paper, but the regulars won't care much.
(I don't know why it is newsworthy when the dude runs out of toilet paper since he has so many people around him anyhow to lick his butt clean)!
Better order that League Pass again as I doubt if the Pistons get no more than 1 or 2 ESPN or TNT national games.
The preliminary schedule does not show the Pistons popping up anywhere thru MLK Day...

Pffffft! Looks like the NBA hype machine is at it again with our beloved [strike]Nevada[/strike] Detroit Pistons opening the season Oct 27th against the New Jersey Nets!
How am I supposed to get anything done now?

Do we have a chance to win that game???
Devin Harris/Jordan Farmar
Terrance Williams/Anthony Morrow
Travis Outlaw/Damion James
Derrick Favors/Yi Jianlian
Brook Lopez/ Johan Petro/ Brian Zoubek
I Think that we should be able to win this game, easily
Depends upon how many ankle injuries we have in preseason...
i hope they can win
If Detroit can beat the Miami Heat in this HUGE preseason contest then songs will be sung about it for many years to come. It will surely overshadow anything that happens in the regular season or the playoffs. a David and Goliath type battle. Miami may not recover from it this season. It will always be in the back of their minds.
It will be bigger than the United States beating Russia in hockey in the 1980 Olympics.
We should take a poll on which advertiser does the best job during the game. Just like in the Super Bowl. How much do you guys think that Coke and Pepsi will dish out for a commercial slot?
I can't wait. I wonder how much those tickets are going for? Scalpers are probably cleaning up.
This is going to be even bigger than the famous preseason game when...uhmmm...well...you know, that other one that everyone remembers...I know there were two teams...and...uhmmm...uhmmm...
Do you guys really think we have a chance to win this thing?
