They were ready to give up on Lebron and the Cavs a week ago... that idiot Skip Bayless saying he was not a clutch player.
I know true Celtics fans can't be too down on this team. They are probably the most complete team in the league and the fact that they haven't won on the road in the playoffs isn't as bad an omen as some have made it out to be.
The Hawks had 2007 GS-like momentum in front of their home crowd and I'm glad the Pistons got the 76ers instead.
The Cavs are such a pain to deal with. Pistons fans know from the last two playoffs. It would be horrible to watch Lebron singlehandedly lead a ragtag bunch of roleplayers to the ECF once again. The Celtics should be too deep and play too good defense for the Cavs to win this series. KG needs to stay in the post and the offense needs to go from the inside out.
As a Pistons fan I don't know who I'd rather face in the ECF if we make it, probably the Cavs, but my heart has me rooting for KG against the one-man-show Lebron.
Yeah uh.. I think the turd I dropped off about 45 minutes ago would be a better sports analyst then skip bayless. Serioulsy, calling LeBron prince james??? really?!
I think "ragtag bunch of role players" is a little harsh for LeBron's cast. Yeah, he doesn't have the best players around him but Delonte West has proven to be a solid starting point guard. Wally Szczerbiak's been very consistent thus far from the perimeter and Zydrunas Ilgauskas has probably been the most consistent center for the past 5 years. He's so underrated and gets no credit whatsoever. And LeBron's obviously not single handedly keeping the cavs in this. If you've noticed his shooting percentage this series, you could see that. People are finally stepping up finally, plain and simple.
