It's always sad for me to see fans rooting for a loss in order to tank for a better draft choice.  I've never quite been able to get to the point where I want my team to lose, for any reason.   I can understand other fans not liking Tommy's Celtics homerism, but to wish harm on him is pretty classless.  The guy has 10 rings as both player and coach and has forgotten more about basketball than most fans have ever known.  Show some respect, even though you don't agree with his love of the Celtics.   Loved the video from way back - Johnny Most makes Tommy look impartial.    Nice to get the win!  Enjoy today's comments.  Don't look now Pistons fans but the Pistons have been playing .500 ball their last 2 games! Lawrence "Tank" sits Calderon this game due to a sore right arm.. . See what happens when you help win a game....you get punished the next game Hoping that Boston find away to beat us this game, don't see it happening though, we're probably going to sweep them for this season Always have to hope we beat the Celts It’s just in my Pistons DNA. Loved the video of Most whining. Yeah, a couple of those plays were rough, but on several it’s the same pushing and shoving stuff you see now in the post. But I guess since it was the Celtics, Most figured our guys should give them ingraved invitations and then escort them to the basket. It seems like we always beat Celtics. Even last season we gave them a tough time. They can't keep us off the offensive boards Drummond already dominating Oh my god he's so good. Is Calderon out or was he benched in favor of B Knight/Stuck? He's out with a hand injury (or arm, I don't remember) That's what "they" want you to think... Also, Lee Harvey Oswald was innocent. Tonight is must lose for tank purposes. I have a feeling we win by double digits though. Celtics announcers aren't as bad to listen to as most people say. Green is a beast. Don't remember him being this athletic or talented in OKC. That Terrance Williams guy looks familiar. He looks better than Knight running a team. Williams can play the 1,2 or 3, has great court vision, is a very good passer, can slash or score from outside, is a very good defender and a good rebounder. The Celtics going deep in the playoffs is wishful thinking on their part. Shavlik Randolph is white? He played for Dook. Of course he is. Tommy Heinsohn is the embodiment of everything that sucks about Boston The team and the city. No one's listening to Frank anymore April MVP Stuckey getting Wade calls I forgot Crawford was on the c's . Didn't he once say he could be MJ? Yeah, that's why I call him Michael Jordan Crawford. Lol, C's announcer getting a little homeristic about the foul calls How does stuckey even get calls, that looked like a clean block Stuckey and Knight competing for most incompetent guard? It seems like a chuck fest between them two. The Celtic announcers don't F***ing know anything about the Pistons These guys are g** damn clowns. ********. I don't even know what this dude is trying to say with all that fumbling and mumbling Allow me to sum it up for you: CELTICS RULE, PISTERS DROOL Dear Lawrence, I would like you to notice how your previous head coach still has his main starters in the game even with a large lead, some even with 3 fouls. Thank you. I figured out why the Pistons are bad It is because when they throw the ball at the basket, it does not often go in. They should work on that. I just heard Charlie shout "****!" Any chance the FCC will arrest him and the Pistons can void the last year of the contract? I would not mind Jeff green Avery "The Next Dumars" Bradley I hope we don't come back to win this Since when is Jeff Green a good player? I’m confused. Rebounding is why the Pistons are in this game. Attn: Brandon Knight If you got rid of the contacts and started rocking old school goggles, I’d hate you slightly less. I don't like Charlie Villanueva. Whoever decided to keep him in the rotation should be fired. Why isn't Drummond in now? Charlie V preserving the tank CV is driving the tank.   I hate how Frank thinks he has to stick with Charlie just because we have been on a comback. Throwsitaueva Paul pierce such a beast You can't hold Stuckey's hand. Sorry Bradley. he's just not into you Its called fighting for position Celtics announcers DIE HEINSOHN DIE IN A CAR FIRE Seriously, Jeff Green? What the hell? Since when did he stop sucking? So frank doesn't play drummond in the 4th qtr??? He hasn't played in the 4th since he became a starter I really dislike his coaching. Green has been pretty damn good for the last few months. The Celtics are just flat out stupid. Let JJ take that shot. They keep closing hard and get beat on the baseline. Poor use of the scouting report. Tommy Heinsohn wants to foul everyone out Did tommy just have a stroke? The SF position is in pretty good hands in Boston. I'd say better than our situation , however Green has yet to be consistent Is Avery Bradley supposed to be a good defender? Stuckey has been abusing him since the game started Brandon Knight is the worst player in the NBA. I could kick Knight and Villanueva right now. Please don't win. We need to lose this game!!! I swear I just saw Frank sporting a “Damn. If I hadn’t inexplicably benched Jerebko for half the season, I could possibly have a job next year.” look. Pretty sure they just had to mute Heinsohn's mic after that Pierce foul I thought he was having some sort of heart attack or aneurysm. We can only hope Charlie Villanueva gets to play the whole god damn quarter while shooting 2-15, and Drummond sees nothing. Say it with me now. Ahem FIRE FRANK. FIRE FRANK. FIRE FRANK. FIRE FRANK. Kind of awesome numbers-- CV and Knight with four baskets in 59 and a half minutes. On 26 damn shots. Charlie was 2 of 17 from the field It takes a lot to suck that bad My word get us some Jeff Green....dude is killing it. Jeff green post allstar stats: 17 points, %50 FG, 41.3 3FG Reen is just a flat out beast. I'm glad we lost but I'm so tired of Frank. I don't think I can handle another year of these rotations. The tank is in cruise control oladipo here we come Fun game to watch and we loose. Double plus! If Drummond is healthy, Franks should've coached his last game with the Pistons. Terrible coaching as usual from Franks. I'm pretty sure he got banged up on the Jeff green play. When green pushed him out of bounds. When I was watching I thought he did & I didn't see him get in the game after that The evidence is starting to pile up that Knight has taken tanking to a whole new level... First fouling DeAndre Jordan & now missing wide open layups! He may be ahead of his time [Discuss on CG Forums!]
