Shame On You Allen Iverson

Allen Iverson was the only person who did not show up to practice Thursday morning. It was Thanksgiving so I can understand why he didn't want to show up, but sometimes you have to do things that you don't want to do. Allen Iverson made a poor decision not show up for practice, especially with his reputation. Not showing up for practice is not how you gain the trust of your coaches or teamates. It seems like he would atleast try to make a good impression especially being new to the team. Doesn't seem like A.I changed to much...

Pistons Give Cav's A Suprise Beat Down

The Cavaliers dominated the Pistons in the first half Wednesday night. The second half however a was different story.

Arron Afflalo gave the Pistons a much needed spark. Like the Veteran ex-Piston Lindsay Hunter, Afflalo's energy is just incredible.

With the help of Arron Afflalo, the Pistons came alive in the second half, ambushed the Cav's and whipped the pants off of them. Rasheed Wallace knocked down some three's and the rest is history.

The old Pistons team, did not have anyone who can penetrate and attack the paint, now they have four. With the addition of Allen Iverson, Will Bynum, Rodney Stuckey, and Arron Afflalo, the Pistons have plenty of weapons who can go inside and attack the paint. In fact, let me add Mr. Point/Forward, Tayshaun Prince to the list. I mean really, What can't Tayshaun do?

Check out these stats! Last night against the Cavilier's, the Pistons scored 44 points in the paint to the Cavilier's 22. Now, That's impressive! Especially considering the fact that the Cav's have a human freight train on their team (Lebron James).

The Pistons beat the Cavilier's 96 to 89. Next opponent, The Boston Celtics.

The Pistons Are Starting To Look Good

The Pistons with newly acquired Allen Iverson are starting to click and it's a fun thing to watch. Once they get Rip on board, this is going to be a bad team and I mean that in a good way... I'm excited.


The Pistons beat the Lakers 106 - 95

Allen Iverson Gets His First Win As A Piston

Allen Iverson played like himself Tuesday night against the Kings. He had 30 points, 7 rebounds and 9 assists. The Pistons beat the Kings 100 - 92.

I'm glad to see that Allen Iverson is getting use to his teammates. He seems to be clicking very well with Tayshaun Prince who knocked down 26 points and had 11 rebounds against the Kings. I'm sure that within a few more games, Rip Hamilton and Rasheed Wallace will start clicking with A.I. as well. The missing piece to the puzzle right now is Antonio Mcdyess. I really hope that he decides to re-sign with the Pistons.

Pistons Fans Hold Your Horses

Yeah last nights game against the Celtics was ugly. The Pistons couldn't make a shot if their lives depended on it, but how many nights are the Pistons are going to have like that? Not too many. Think about it... They were playing in front of their fans for the first time in six years without their captain Chauncey Billups. Clearly their nerves got the best of them. Yeah, it doesn't help when you boo.

Once Allen Iverson gets familiar with the team, he's going to help them out tremendously. Monday nights game against the Celtics was only A.I. second game playing as a Piston. So give 'em a break will ya.

Pistons Fans are so spoiled...

Rip Hamilton Signs a 3-year Contract Extension

Monday Rip Hamilton signed a 3-year contract extension worth $34 million dollars.

Chauncey Billups Traded For Allen Iverson

I was shocked when I found out that Chauncey Billups along with Antonio Mcdyess and Cheikh Samb was traded to the Denver Nuggets for Allen Iverson. I'm having mixed emotions right now...

I feel sad about Chauncey being traded because I know that he wanted to retire as a Piston and I feel bad for Mcdyess because he desperately wanted to win a championship. My heart goes out to both of them.

On the other hand, I'm little excited about Allen Iverson joining the team. I've always been a fan of A.I. He's a great player and he gets along well with his teammates. Allen Iverson will play in Wednesday nights game against the Raptors.

Walter Herrmann, Great Addition to the Pistons

I've been a fan of Walter Herrmann since he joined the Pistons last season. Anyone who missed his performance against the Wizards Saturday night, should still agree that he's a great addition to the team. What Walter Herrmann showed in the few minutes that he was given last season, with Flip Saunders as the head coach, is that he's good both offensively and defensively. Saturday night with Michael Curry as head coach, Walter showed the same thing. Saturday night, Walter Herrmann made some great plays, played great defense, knocked down some crucial shots and helped build the Pistons lead over the Wizards. He had 16 points. The bench had an impressive 55 points altogether. The Pistons beat the Wizards 117 - 109.

Hopefully the new coach will continue to allow Walter Herrmann to play more minutes this season. I'm really excited about what he brings to the team. Yeah!!!
