Tayshaun Just Wants His Teammates to Calm the Hell Down

“Them dudes, they off the chain,” Prince said. “I can’t help them. I talk to them as much as I can. I can’t do nothing. You know what? There’s been plenty of times where we’ve been aggressive going to the rim, couple things don’t go our way, then a couple ticky-tack calls and the next thing you know, we start to yell at the refs.”

    It sounds like Tay can’t handle it himself. I feel his pain, but such is life in Mo-town.

    Sheed has to step up in every game and Rip has to play like an all-star, and they have to trade AI for two solid veterans who can help right away plus a young guy for fresh legs on the court, that will help out the franchise more than AI ever will. Sorry Detroit, AI = no chance at a championship.

    Actually, Tayshaun complains as much as Rip if you watch the games.
    Rip, Tayshaun and Sheed complain the most. Sheed and Rip get the most techs. AI complains a lot, but he doesn’t get that many techs and it doesn’t affect his game as much as it does the other Pistons.
    The Pistons have been complaining about calls since they won their rings, why is everybody pretending like this is something new?

    Big Man: They complained even before they won their championship. The difference is they ain’t winning anymore.

    I guess that plan backfired AI for billups was plum stupid lol its gonna b hard for AI to fit in with any system and be successful. Those days are long gone. 6 conference champs wasnt enuff the GM tried to get greedy and actually hurt his team more then he helped them
