Detroit Pistons Funeral

I wasn't sure if I could even bring myself to post about this after the Pistons lost to the Cavs in 6 games in the Eastern Conference Finals on Saturday. I'm not going to say anything about officiating, or anything like that. I'm not jaded. I'm really just very disappointed in the way the team went out. They went out like a bunch of whining babies that they are. I'm honestly sick of this team, and the NBA as a whole. The pistons melted down in the 4th quarter of the game and everyone was responsible.

What really bothered me though was the way they all started to whine to the officials towards the end. This isn't anything new of course, but it still made me hate being a fan of this team. Sheed got his 6th and 7th technical fouls in the playoffs within seconds of one another because he didn't like a call. Fine. He got the 2 Techs to get ejected, but really it was his way of saying he gave up. 7 Techs int he playoffs is an automatic suspension so even if they did win he wouldn't have been able to play in game 7. I hope they all got a no exam life insurance policy before this series because these guys right now are dead to me, as well as the NBA.
