Re: First round playoff opponent…
We all know that the players haven't really listened to Flip much since he's been there but they have been gelling a little more at the end of this season. I think the Pistons will be motivated for the playoffs, although it may not be totally because of Flip. I almost think it's time for a coaching change, especially if Detroit doesn't impress us this post season. You can't have a team where all your players and your coach don't get along well. Naturally the Pistons aren't going to overhaul their roster to keep Flip around. I think Carlisle is the best coach we've had since Daly, although he had people problems too, they weren't as bad as Brown or Saunders. Even if Flip doesn't get them motivated for Philly, I don't see them beating Detroit.
