Pistons 88
Fakers 68

:-D


Hey - tell me again how the LA is gonna sweep Detroit.

Apparantly the ESPN guys have switched their allegiance after this performance - anyone else care to jump on board?

LA simply isnt as good and they have a tough time matching up with Detroit.

I think the sign that said it best was:
I see Kobe and Shaq, but where are the Lakers?

I am fully on board with you and have a 100 dollar bet with a friend that the Pistons would blow LA away!

And yes I made it before the series started!

Pistons are to energetic, to hungry, and just plain old too damn good.Malone is hurting, Payton dont even know where he fits in, and the rest of tehre team is horrible.Kobe and Shaq is all they have.

No comebacks of well the Bulls just had Jordan and Pippen either because the Bulls had much better bench and role players to fill the void.Lakers have no one!

GO PISTONS!!!!!!

I'm rooting for the Pistons too! Due more to the fact that I do not want the Lakers to win.

The Pistons are definitely the better team, and the lakers just look like they don't care.

That said, the series still isn't over yet, but the Lakers need to figure themselves out if they don't want to look like the suckers that they probably are.

I'm against the Lakers too, but it's not their fault. I always root for the underdog if I don't have a preference. I do, however, have a dislike of Kobe. He is NOT the best player in the league. Just because he can hit shots at key points means nothing. If he would hit a few shots in the first half, too, then I'd consider him one of the best. People don't realize that just because he can make the most acrobatic shots once in a while, a quick jumper from 10 feet out counts just the same and is much easier to make. A dunk in the last 5 minutes of the game while mounting a comeback is just as helpful as making a couple free-throws in the first quarter. Give me T-Mac or KG any day of the week.

I think if the pistons win the series then all those "so-called" basketball analysts should be fired.

They are the real "faker" if you ask me.

My objective view is that the Pistons lost the series with that brain fart in game 2. There is no way that they will win 3 in a row at home. IMHO, the Lakers win in 7. I hope that I am wrong because I really want the Pistons, though.

I actually watched the first half of the game, it was the first NBA action I have watched since the first week of the season. That was almost as exciting as watching ESPN championship Ping Pong. They should follow the NHL's lead and have a lockout next season just to see if anyone will notice.

My prediction, Pistons in 7 winning by on LA's homecourt by putting the fans to sleep.

I thought people who watch baseball would be a little more tolerant of defense and a slow pace...

go pistons, I stick by my pistons in 7 pick

2-3-2 sucks though, it's near impossible to win three home finals games in a row

I am all for defense and slow pace games, but constant, unforced turnovers and poor shooting is just not interesting in the pro game. I'll wait for the NCAA season to roll around to watch an 80-70 game.
