Well, they simply don't play tough enough under him I don't think. They aren't playing as tough as they did under Larry Brown.

Rasheed Wallace is an enigma. Like Chuck Barkley has said, due has/had the talent to be one of the best PFs in the NBA.

All that buddy buddy stuff with Garnett was a no no. He really played poor all series. If Rasheed has an MVP like series, Det probably wins.

With Rasheed being 33, and Jason Maxiell developing, Joe Dumars should seriously considering trading Sheed. I think Flip Saunders should be replaced as well. Detroit will never win a title with Flip as the coach imho.

There aren't any better coaches than Flip available right now, anyways it might be time to break this team up and if thats the case I say no harm in keeping Flip at least one more season.

As much as I've been on him in the past, its hard for me to blame him in this series when some of our guys just plain didn't show up.

I guess I'd be OK with Avery or Van Gundy, but they seem like lateral moves even though they've both been to the finals and Flip hasn't.

I think is Flip is done in Motown. This team is not going to win a title with Flip as the coach. I just didn't get why he didn't play Maxiell more in this series. Mindbogglingly stupid.

Sheed should be traded as well. Detroit needs to shake up there roster a bit.

Only thing I can bash him for is not playing Amir while they were getting killed on the offensive boards.

It seems to me that Wallace hasn't been very inspired these Playoffs, and he's displayed an especially bad attitude at times, including in this last game. Still, the Pistons aren't contenders without him. The franchise would go straight to rebuilding mode, while probably being a mediocre Playoff team out of the East for a while.

Many fans have been calling for the Pistons to shake things up for the past couple of seasons, but as long as they're at least making Conference Finals appearances, I would try not to let go of Billups, Hamilton, Prince, or Wallace. It might be time for a new coach, though. And, improve the bench, and they could be back to the Finals.
