The New Detroit Pistons will be a solid force in the Eastern Conference this year. Excuse me, they will be dominant force again this year. Its time for everyone to stop talking about the negatives in the departure of Big Bad Ben Wallace and Start talking about what will open up for the Detroit Pistons.
did Ben Wallace have to do with this guy being a legit MVP candidate last season??? He is only gonna put up better numbers now that Coach Flip is focusing on a more complex offensive scheme. Billups can execute.
Rip Hamilton: We arent gonna see those sneaky little pick n rolls ending with an alley-oop to Ben from Rip anymore, but does anyone really think thats a play Dice cant make? Rip will be Rip and play Rip's game no matter what Center he's with.
Tay Tay: I am guaransheeding he has a break out year (whatever guaransheed means...) but seriously this guy is smart, really long, strokin the ball, and really clutch.
Rasheed: Better fix his game and with defenders actually payin attention to our new center Dice, that should make his game easier to fix.
Dice: I have honestly mistaken him for Ben last year in multiple games. This "old man" can play weakside
defense just about
as well as Ben can. If he stays healthy I wouldnt be surprised to see him in Las Vegas in Feb.07
Bench: Flip is a baller. Nazr is underrated. Lindsey is back. ...and hopefully one of them young fellas will have a impact.
Pistons will win 60 +/- 2 in the reg. season.
Nobody can predict what will happen in the playoffs.
