Pistons up by 21 after three. It seems I made a psot a while ago about Detroit crushing a certain team after three by 20+ two rounds ago.

Lets just I am not that happy. I came in not liking the Lakers but I come out hating the Pistons a lot more.

WOOHOO! Wow, what a performance by the Pistons. Finally in the NBA teamwork prevails over the superstars. Congratulations to Larry Brown on his first NBA title...a heckuva coach at all levels. Zen-Master may be the smartest man in the NBA for finding his way onto teams with Jordan/Pippen and Shaq/Kobe in their prime but Larry Brown is the best coach :P

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Very True Hasan and to prove that your right...look at the last 13 years of MVPs. We got Jordan with 6, O'Neal with 3, The dream with two and Duncan with two.

I am shocked at how easy the Pistons have made this look. I thought seven and they'd have a shot. But they are just so much hungrier to every loose ball. They work so hard in their sets and run so much. This is as impressive a performance as I have ever seen. I don't know how anyone can despise the Pistons after this. They play so hard. Isn't that something you can respect? I love how hard Ben Wallace plays. This team reminds me a lot of the old Bad Boys. Such a tough mentality. They won't be denied!

Congrats to them. They deserve it. Especially Larry Brown.


Also, this is probably it for Kobe in LA. Did anyone else see the demeanor on LA at the end of the 3rd quarter? They looked so defeated. They didn't even get off a last shot. That speaks volumes. Intimidation.

P.S. I hope ABC is happy with this final! LOL

Bill Davidson.

The Champs are an east team. I am sure people didn;t think that would happen for a while.

I like their chant though.

The Nets gave them a tougher time. Well at least the Nets can say they lost to the Champs. Very glad the Lakers lost.

Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeetroit BASKET-BALL!

Over a million will show up for the parade. This city always rallies around sports. It's awesome to see the Pistons win the whole thing after doing well the past couple of years. I'm not the biggest basketball fan. I used to watch the Pistons more in the mid-90s when they sucked. Bill Davidson, Joe Dumars, Rick Carlisle and Larry Robinson helped this team get the right mindset and go all the way. Good for the Pistons, great for Detroit.

Time to rename 3 Championship Drive to 4 Championship Drive.

What I find kind of amusing is that the Nets nearly had the Pistons beat... but they never would have had such an easy time with the Lakers! A testament to sports psychology I think!

Yeah Detroit! I love my home town :evil: (ok so I was taken HOME to Dearborn :P )

It was said quite awhile ago, i think i heard it on ESPNews(put as much stock in it as you like) that the knicks said that are willing to make a legit run at bringing KOBe to NY, perhaps in a sign and trade with Houston going to LA, or somewhere else.
