It’s So Cold in the D

So very, very cold: “The Pistons are much like the economy these days. Where exactly is the low point? How bad can it get? With the economy, no one really knows where’s bottom. But with the Pistons, it’ll be difficult to get much lower than Sunday’s 99-78 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. They never were in the game. ‘We stunk the gym out,’ Allen Iverson said. ‘We usually play together on the road, but we just acted like strangers out there. We didn’t get it done.’ The loss extended the Pistons losing streak to a season-high six games. They also officially became a .500 team, at 27-27.”

    Smart move by Joe D to not move anyone at the trade deadline.

    stuckey wasnt ready to run the team, plus the pieces dont fit anymore….. anyone think mcdyess is now second guessing himself for demanding a buyout from the nuggs?


    the season was over when AI arrived. He is a ball hog and never going to work on a proper team like detriot. At least hey get salary cap relief thi summer with AI and the artist formerly known as sheed out of contract!

  • Andy

    Ok, even I accept that the Pistons are f***ed right now.

  • Zabba

    sucks balls. they’re just waiting for playoff time.

    Zabba, they have to MAKE the playoffs first.

    LeBron that slimeball made mashed potatoes out of Iverson. I will never forget.

    “…how da F** we spose ta keep peace.” I’m suprised you didn’t link that youtube video.
    About the pistons. First year coach and 2nd year point guard leading veterans isn’t gonna work.

    Stuckey needs to be benched. He is hurting the team and his developement with his play from the last few weeks. Let AI run the point and put Rip back in to start. What’s the worst that can happen…they lose?

  • Andy

    I feel really sorry for Stuck. It can’t help that the guys he’s trying to feed look like they’d rather be anywhere else at the moment.

    TAD: The worst thing that can happen is more changes in the god damn rotation. Weren’t you against switching things constantly?

  • http://sfjdkldf.com Jukai

    Besides, c’mon everyone. It could be worse. You could all be Houston fans.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Jukai: I think Houston has actually won a game in the last 2 1/2 weeks.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    And for perspectives sake, I was actually against Stuckey being named a starter when he was. He then proceeded to shut me the hell up a mere 3 games into his promotion. At this point though, i’m looking to protect the young guys psyche. Honestly, I really do think that there is something wrong with him physically. He is definitely affected mentally right now. I would like for him to sit a few games to watch and get refreshed. Hell, start Afflalo and keep Rip coming off the bench for all I care.

    The Mastermind that is Joe Dumars (say the whole thing) has ascended into an even higher level of consciousness. It’s not about wins or losses. Its about playing 3 shooting guards concurrently.

  • Jess

    Ok the Pistons are hard to watch right now, but I am getting SO SICK of people saying this is all AI. I mean there were obviously problems before AI, but as we can all see now, Billups was their glue on the court and in the locker room. Dumars knew the type of player he was getting in AI, and it isnt Iverson’s fault that the rest of the team isnt producuing. The team was never the same after Wallace left and then you take away Chauncey – and you expect the same results? Its too bad this trade didnt work out, but there so no way you can say that the disappointing season is a result of Allen Iverson.

  • mike

    The Piston’s lost their Championship edge when Okur went to Utah. They lost their competitive edge when Larry Brown left.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    Okur??!! HAHAHAHAHA

    I’m very proud of Tad for not committing suicide.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    The way I see it Anton, the Pistons had 7 years of success and good luck, so who am I to complain? It had to end eventually.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    However, I WILL still complain.

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    You should start a brawl at the next home game for good ole times’ sake.

  • doyouwantmore

    Allen Iverson happened.

  • shone jones

    What do you expect AI to do?
