    At this stage, I'd rather have Doug Pietkowski-Hoiberg at SG.

    And UB's too short to play C, and he'd just want to front the post, anyway. So as the arm-chair coach, let me just say we aren't going to play that style of defense.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    As the head coach, you're going to play straight man, half-court trapping.

    And if we're down, I'm going to go bobby Knight at halftime......

    I'm also going to institue the "3 passed before a shot" rule.

    Not because I want to encourage teamwork, but because I want to bleed the shot clock and lessen posessions......

    If we play the Pistons, I vote to play our home games at any place other than Conseco. The Pistons own Conseco.

    I'm scraed to death of the Celtics right now. No way I want to re-live the 2003 fiasco. Watching A. Walker celebrate has caused me post traumatic stress

    I would rather the Pistons play philly or orlando than indiana (if Tinsley and Oneal are 100%). That being said, I like the Pistons chances against anyone.

    Well, let's see, we have Peck starting at power forward, UncleBuck at center, one of the reggies at shooting guard, naw both of 'em should start and Peck'll set picks for both of 'em as they crisscross the baseline, and the FreeArtest guy at small forward.

    Did I leave anybody out?

    Sorry, I was going to pencil you in as UB's replacement in the middle, but I forgot...

    See, he b*tches all the time about it. But in actuality Peck would be spend most of his games in street clothes nursing his nagging hunger pains with a snickers.

    You haven't said who's going to be sitting on the bench wearing a suit in some kind of primary color, like Red or Yellow and wearing diamond studs in his ears so heavy they rest on his shoulders?

    Just in case Btown wasn't clear, a significant portion of zero is still zero.

    I was going to ask what position Kegboy would get. Then I was going to say he could be the waterboy, but you took my thunder.

    I guess he could be the injured player. At least his wardrobe is better than John Edward's.

    I forgot about the original point of this thread.

    I think everyone pretty much wants to play us in the first round. Even the teams who don't have a prayer of reaching the playoffs wouldn't mind it. At least they'd be in the playoffs. As for the teams who actually will be in the playoffs why wouldn't they want to play us? Even if we put together 3 good games we're bound to start losing. It's just a fact of life this season.

    PFff....put me against Iverson...I'd drive the ball past him like nobody's business
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    You and Peck are coming off the bench.

    you can't tell me Miami isn't cringing at the thought of playing the pacers...can you? or detroit...the whole season just to lose in the first round? What do the pacers have to lose? they know nobody thinks they will win. The season was shot after ron ron went into the stands. So, what do we have to lose? put it all on the floor and see what we can get done. Honestly? I see us in the eastern conf. finals....and I see Detroit and Miami...at home...
    you heard it here first...

    Right now I would think EVERY team would be hoping to play us in the first round.




    (but that can change)

    I cant see us beating the Pistons without our full roster on court and healthy.
    We might beat the Heat with only 2 out of 3 (JO, Tins, Ron) but we'd have to get some luck, which in a season like this doesn't seem that likely.

    I'll be the guy who sits back and watches you play your hearts out, hangs out with DisplacedKnick on the bench, and cashs in during the ring ceremony...

    That's the role I want. Make nearly half a million, great seats to the game, travel all over the country, screw the groupies along the way. Sounds good.

    I'd like to play, but these darn back spasms.
