In other words, I wouldn't count Grant Hill out just yet.

He's been playing great basketball and helped drag his team into the playoffs.

Considering this could be his last shot at the playoffs, I expect him to go all out this series.

You mean year after year of Grant losing in the first round of the playoffs? I remember it well.

That might honestly be a tough call for the Magic if they still had the choice. A good player from the middle of the draft would cost them nothing, while Darko's going to seriously eat into their cap space this summer. On the bright side I don't expect him to get quite as much cash as I originally thought since he didn't have a true breakout year.

In hindsight the Darko trade doesn't seem all that horrible for the Pistons. At the time I was ready to puke, but I was still overvaluing him. He could turn into a good starter someday, but I'm less worried about him developing into a star now. He just seems too inconsistent to ever put it all together on the court.

Who wouldn't want this beast?

The Darko plus Arroyo For Cato and Pick was favored to Orlando.

You couldn't have been more lucky on the lottery pick. This is a THE worst playoff team, possibly of the decade. 6ers traded away AI for pennies, Pacers absolutely crumbled down the stretch, Celtics blew up with injuries, Redd went down killing a playoff team, and the Knicks can't keep anything going.

On top of all of that, the magic still almost blew it.

And I hope the Bulls take out Shaq, because we have no answer for him. Wade doesn't worry me much, especially now he's hurt and the Cavs are a joke.

3 of the 4 piston wins vs. Orl this year were determined by 5 points or less. It won't be as lopsided a matchup as most would think, imo.

The Magic will find a way to win one, maybe two games as "the worst playoff team of the decade". **

If the Pistons can take care of business and win its first 2 games at home, the series should be a cakewalk for them.

BUT, if Orlando pulls one out and goes home for two games tied up 1-1....it could turn into a very dangerous series for Detroit.

Not only is it an extraordinary circumstance, but they could still beat the Magic because they at least have a go to scorer.

I hope the Pistons aren't as cocky as some of the fans on this board.

Orlando's won six of seven and Hedo has been coming on for them. Dwight Howard is a beast inside and Grant Hill and Darko will be motivated against there old squad.

I think Detroit will win in five or six, but it always scares me when hear people say it will be an easy series. Maybe I'm just a paranoid fan.

Are the Magic even .500? Gimme a break. THey can't win this series. There's cocky, and there's a terrible opponent. Pretty sure the Magic fall into the latter as opposed to the former.
