With Ben gone and Webber in, the Pistons have 5 legit guys who can score. something that didn't happen in the starting 5 last season in the playoffs.
Defense wasn't the problem in that series, offense was. Depending who the pistons get for Nazr, the Pistons should beat the Heat. This time around It will be different. Different situation
Offense was a problem but the only way the Piston beat the Heat is with stops. Subing Webber for Wallace doesn't help that one bit.
Wade abused the Pistons 2 years in a row. That isn't going to change. I think the Pistons will score more & still lose in 6.
The Pistons even bring 2000 flashbacks out of Shaq. He averaged 22.5 & 11rebs in that series.
He has to be laughing his a@@ off at the thought of Webber guarding him.
