Joe D is one of the most respected men in the league. He will not be fired for good reason. Joe D is going to do a mass facelift for D-town and will gear them up to beat any team in the east.


Flip on the other hand. Have fun coaching gophers Cya!

yes cause Flip Saunders scored 9 points and dished 1 assist in an elimination game.

because Flip Saunders scored 25 points in a row for the other team.

because Flip Saunders shot 0-8, 1-11, and 1-10 in three Conference Finals games.

Flip Saunders has never been a good fit for this team but don't blame this loss on him. he should be fired but not because of this series.

Joe D. is a very respected guy and brought a title to Detroit, but I can't help but think he maybe cost the Pistons 1-2 additional championships with his Darko over Melo blunder.

Nazr Mohamd getting playing time just about sealed Flip being gone next season. But putting in Flip and Lidsey to start the fourth takes the cake.


He gone, look for JVG as the new coach of the Pistons.

You heard it here first.

You realize now though how brutal that Darko > Melo draft pick was though when you now look at the Pistons future.

I have never been impressed with Flip... he just bugs and chokes in pressure situations.

As for JVG, thats just replacing one loser with another who cant get to the finals dance.

They used to do that. When Brown was coaching. Now that Flips here their offense has changed...for the worse. Like i've been saying, he's a loser. He has Rip on the 3 line or posting up. Not utilizing him correctly.

Yeah! Then send Flip to Rockets to team with T-Mac. That would be the bomb!!!
With T-Mac's curse and Flip's jinx, Yao will have to bring in his feng shui experts every time he plays to counter Flip and T-Mac's negative jin. Hehe..

I totally agree. Haven't seen much of Rip's midrange jump shots in this series.

Rip's midrange game is crucial to Flip's offense. Don't jump to conclusions.

If they decide to blow it up(I hope not), I'd just like to say that it's been a pleasure watching them over the years. It's been a great run and I think they should have more than 1 title.

I don't think the players ever respected Flip. Seemed to me like they were too cocky and arrogant after making to the Finals back-to-back. In the end, that was their undoing. It's good to be a little bit arrogant, but they seem to lack that killer instinct that shows they deserve to be arrogant.

Well, it looks like "opening up the offensive reigns" doesn't equal championships, right Flip Saunders? lol.. You know the funny thing is, people have been talking about the changes and how offense now wins championships but what is actually the last offensive team to actually win a championship? I'd really like to know that.

After thinking about it a little while, I wouldn't be surprised if there is massive roster turnover and a possible rebuild this summer. Joe D in the past was very aggressive in shaking things up, but after the championship he's tried to hold the guys together to make title runs.

Ojectively, it doesn't look like this core group will be making any more title runs, their ship has definitely been moving in the wrong direction the last few years. Joe will go to work now and try to get the team moving back towards a championship instead of away from one.
