How can we possibly hang that banner and call ourselves central division champs when Detroit (central division) is eastern conference champs? To me, that's a little strange. Take that banner down and burn it, or send it to Detroit. Sorry, still not over it yet :cry:

Alright, who wants to form a picket line outside Conseco demanding that we remove the banner as soon as we put it up next season? And while we're at it, let's take down the Eastern Conference Champions banner since we didn't win the Finals that year. Heck, let's get rid of all the ones that recognize a team or person who didn't win us a championship. Who's with me?

Well, I was quite happy with our 02 and 03 division banners, but then again we advanced farther than anyone else in the division.......

I'd certainly feel pretty wierd about it.

Detroit Pistons: 2004 Eastern Conference Champions. Its been 14 years but it was well worth the wait. When this era is over, #32 will hang from the rafters next to #3. Go Pistons.

Who is #32? Rip Hamilton? I'm just guessing because he was running around so much I never got a chance to catch his number.

Makes me think that before us is evidence to be added here:

Hopefully only being CDC will motivate the players to go the rest of the way next time. I know i would look up there to get motivation that they could go so much further.

Why wouldn't we hang the banner? We earned it!

I thought that banner should have gone up very quietly, as soon as we clinched the division. If there is some banner-raising ceremony next season, I'm not sure I'll be standng and cheering for *this* banner.

Next thing you know, class basketball will move to the NBA. Next year, the Knicks, Mavericks, Kings and Blazers are all invited to play for the 'overpriced roster' championship. We wouldn't want to deny those teams and fans a chance to earn *some* banner just because their owners overspent, would we?

Maybe I should've added [sarcarsm] - [/sarcasm] around my first post. I hope no one was taking me seriously. :laugh:

I thought the "crossed fingers" part would get the meaning across.

In order to receive a Division banner, you must have the best record in your division. Guess what? We did. I say hang it up-- we earned it.

Yeah, I would hang it as well. The playoffs are a different monster entirely and its not like the Pacers didn't perform at all in the post season. There is no shame in losing when they clearly played hard and made it competitive, its no reason to forget all they did in the season.

And before us we have two candidates for the a$$hole thread when and if it gets started. I'm just upset about the season and blew off a little steam ... Shade, one of the admins here, did it (blew off steam, upset)several times yet I see no one calling him a dope smoker, you're just an a-hole.
