Tayshaun May Shut it Down Tonight

Prince, who has six points total in the series’ first two games, won’t force the action with his achy back in Game 3: “I will give whatever I can give,” he said. “It felt better today (Thursday), but at the same time, I didn’t go at game speed. I am not the type of person to give excuses about injuries because I know both Rasheed and Rip (Hamilton) played hurt for us this season. “But this is the pivotal game, so if I am not getting anything going early, I will let Arron (Afflalo) and those guys take the load.”

    end of an era.

    So what do you call what he was doing the first 2 games?

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

    I’ll give Tayshaun credit; at least he is openly admitting it.

    Dear Joe Dumars,
    Please offer Prince straight up for Caron Butler. I’m sure Flip will sign off on it.

    Tayshaun has been putting up the exact same numbers for the last 5 years. Shows consistency but I would have expected more out of him.

    The Prince is calling it like it is. Gone Fishing.

    A broom is a cleaning tool consisting of stiff fibres attached to, and roughly parallel to, a cylindrical handle, the broomstick. In the context of witchcraft, “broomstick” is likely to refer to the broom as a whole. A smaller whisk broom or brush is sometimes called a duster.

    Too bad…I doubt a fully healthy Prince would have made a huge difference, but it wouldn’t have hurt either. I bet his back injury is 100% more legit than AI’s!

    A back injury?
    He’s faking…

  • cdef28

    Tadone as a fellow Pistons fan, I’d love that deal but it’s not going to happen.

    Hey, I can dream dammit! Seriously though, I never imagined I’d see the day that I wouldn’t mind trading Tayshaun.

    The Cavs catch every break.

  • rob stewart

    This is Lebron’s doing. I’m pretty sure when Lebron completed that recent windmill dunk Tayshaun’s back tightened up just a little bit more

  • cdef28

    I know. I’m dreaming of Dumars drafting Johnny Flynn

  • http://www.blogs.myspace.com/originadro Witness

    Tayshaun hasnt missed a game in like 5 years or somethin. And the mans been committed to team USA. He needs a break but then again the Pistons need him more.

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

    With the emergence of Bynum, i’m not sure where Flynn would fit on the Pistons? I just hope Dumars doesn’t fall in love with that 7 foot stiff from Ohio State.

  • CDef28

    Stuckey isn’t a point guard and Bynum is still just a really good back up.

    Finally! I have always wanted them to make a remake of ‘The Caine Mutiny’. Thanks for finally getting it right hollywood. Oh wait, this is Detroit, and it is not a movie? WHAT THE FU(K HAS GONE DOWN HERE!

  • kwame

    basically saying: our season is over…and we need new players…i hope the pistons bounce back nxt yr or the yr after the 2010 free agency class

    not only Prince was thinking of shutting it down tonight.

  • larrylegend

    prince’s faking…lol.

    What a sad sad season…

  • Kevin K

    the most overrated player in the league

    Prince for Butler??? No chance – the Wizards would be crazy to do that.

  • Pardeep

    Tay and Rip and Sheed all pus*ies cant take it to the whole scared of contact get to the freethrow line a combined like 4 times think there shooters but there not these guys shud be coming off the bench for A.I.’s team next year cas thats all these three chumps are role players not starters role players. They kept failing in the EC finals so they prob never trained the whole summer cas there passion was broken and said f*ck it were rich we dont gotta train and now it hits them cas even if Chauncey was a Piston im sure he cant win with 3 washed up pus*ies
