I'm not afraid to admit that I shed a tear when I heard about the potential displacement of Tayshaun. All past differences aside, this is a sad time for Piston Nation and it's crucial that we stick together. With that being said, we can aso think of this as happy time. Tayshaun's cosmic spirit is finally free to shoot with the stars to the farthest reaches of the universe... Thank you for your embrace of the city and team, Tayshaun. Here's to a living legend.
I loved his Wallside Windows commercials. I imagine it won't take him long to pack.
has he been traded?
Tay & Daye are now Memphis Grizzlies. Jose Calderon is now a Piston.
For me this is THE best defensive play that I've ever seen and one of my favorite all-time Piston memories. Thanks Tayshaun!
Now...they'd call Tay for a hard foul on the guy in the 2nd row.
His leadership will be missed...remember when he organized the practice boycott and all of the other great feats of buffoonery?
Have Tay's parents moved to Memphis? I'll miss him cussing out the coach during the games.
Dinner at Roscoe's for the first to post a youtube of Tay running away from Lebron in the 2007 ECF
Alas Poor Tay, we knew him well...769 games, 9838 points., 12.8 career ave .the Key block in the 2004 EC Championship to secure the road to the NBA championship...I still remember Doc Rivers yelling in awe of it. Remember when he got all of the phantom fouls called on him in the 2006 ECC to allow Dwayne to parade to the FT line and to steal a championship from the Mavs Remember when he crowned Lebron King, by allowing him waltz down the lane for 25 straight points in game 6 of the 2007 EC Finals And then there none.....Taynks for the memories...you help build the 21st century Pistons legacy
A bittersweet moment. As frustrating and unlikable as his antics had become to fans, the team still relied on his steady hand. This a step backward...but a necessary step IMO for the team to move forward. Who will step up in his place?
I will miss Tay. I didn't think he was as bad as fans thought he had become, he was simply never a high impact player. But this is a great move for the organization, and hopefully for Tay. I would love to see him win a title in Memphis.
The Block was the single most important play in Pistons franchise history. If he doesn't block that shot, then the Pistons lose the ECF, and never win the '04 championship. If Vinnie doesn't hit that shot with 0.07 left, the Pistons still take game seven at home. He was a crucial cog in two NBA finals appearances and six strait ECF runs. It was time for him to move on, and God bless him. He was a GREAT Piston.
Yeah, it sucks. But it also reminded me of bowling games, I feel pity with the pins because they can't duck.
This is a great development for Tay. It shouldn't take him long to pack his bag.
Time for him to go. 2004-2008 seems like decades ago.
It's been awhile since we have heard from you sis, seems like decades ago.....hope you are doing fine.
