Default First West Coast trip

@ Sacramento
@ Golden State
@ Lakers
@ Phoenix


With AI new at the team, I think 2 - 2 would be good.Also the level of opposition is very tough(Lakers, Phoenix)...


Still we can go for 3 - 1, if we snatch one of Phoenix or Lakers...

Golden State will be interesting too. Chauncey/Saunders were good at slowing the pace of those games.

We have to at least go 2-2 possible 3-1.

It doesn't get better. Detroit comes back home to the Lebrons and the Celtics back to back.

This is a very brutal stretch very early on and it doesn't help that the team is still trying to feel things out and find itself

We are looking at the possibility at being .500 going into the weekend of the 22nd.

Hopefully we can get Stuckey back for the Lakers and Suns…

I figure we can make due for the Kings and Warriors with out Stuckey and he can be fresh for the Lakers.

The tough part about this trip is that it's not just the west coast but then we get Cleveland and Boston before getting back home. The entire road trip will speak a lot about this team. If they come through successful I think it's safe to say the trade was a good one for both teams. I really will like to see how the matchup with Boston works this time around. We have more size down low which is a big reason they won it last year. Of course they are always going to be at PG than Detroit. AI>>>> Rondo.

We pretty much got hosed by the schedule early on. Its quite blatant and down right disgusting. I hate to be that conspiracy theory guy but how the fuck do you go about playing the Lakers, Lebrons, AND Celtics in one week, and have the top two teams in the east back to back, home and road? Something is not right and it's a shame of this hate toward Detroit and the Pistons. Its bad enough that this city is struggling economically, that the professional football team is an absolute joke, and the NBA has to set us up to fail right out of the gate…

Sorry for the rant, this scheduling snafu has had me in an uproar all week. Thank goodness that the Pistons have persevered and and fought through these tough times amidst a major roster change. Last nights win over the Lakers was a win mentally as it was the second game on a back to back on national television in the middle of a west coast trip.

on the conspiracy theory thread, i'm starting to hate the reffing more and more. its like certain games they give a noticable advantage to one team. look at how the lakers were called the other day vs. how the suns were called.
