    Default Pistons aftermath after being eliminated: Is it Rasheed's fault? Will Flip be fired?

    That's my prediction, I can't see how you bring a man back to be the coach of the pistons after his team lost the last 3 ECF after reaching the Finals the season before he was the head coach. I mean how many chances can you give a guy to get a team over the hump???


    Flip will be fired Sunday or Monday.

    I think so. Even the Hawks and Cavs managed to win all the home games against the Celtics and extend the series into game 7 while the Pistons were defeated twice at home. No doubt Flip Saunders is the key to Boston's success and he deserves to be fired.

    I don't think he will be. There have been no off court distractions and it is extremely difficult to make it to the Finals. Detroit's a jumpshooting team, you have to expect more inconsistencies from them especially when Rasheed Wallace is one of your focal points. I think a coaching change at this point would have a minimal effect at best.

    His teams just dont have that extra intensity at the end. Good coach, maybe, but something is up.

    I think he gets fired, but there is no reason to fire him over the weekend unless there are coaches out there Detroit might want, and could go elsewhere.

    I'm not a big Flip fan but I don't see how it was really his fault this year or last. Had good rotations and adjustments. In the end Sheed and Tay just didn't show up.

    Default I blame Detroit's loss solely on Rasheed Wallace.

    tonight watching the game, Rasheed Wallace did not play with a sense of urgency and was very apathetic whilst in the game.

    Rasheed Wallace who is a solid post up threat shot the ball from the 3 point arc 6 times! and made none of them. whoever told him he could shoot the 3 was obviously lieing to him.

    as soon as he went to the bench the Pistons had taken the lead with Mcdyess and Maxiell as there front court, and flip Saunders went and put sheed back in and what does he do? he loses the game for them, he gets in early foul trouble, backchats the refs and was just straight out lazy.

    i expect rasheed to be traded at the end of the year, he is pretty much worthless without a strict coach.

    I agree....as much as i like him......he played horrible all series.....he needs to take the blame 100% instead of cussing out at officials....

    huge disappointment
