The problem with the pistons for a lack of a better term is they are not a sexy team. The pistons do not score a lot of points and some of the less educated basketball fans tend to think because there superstar and can do a 360 degree windmill dunk there team has a better chance to win then a team that plays good defense. Also people tend to over look team chemistry and just look at talent. Take a look at the portland jailblazers they have been one of the most talented teams in the last few years alot more talented than the pistons but they have yet to put it together as a team. Don't let some guys prediction worry you the pistons will be fine.
We brought up the sexy term because we were trying to figure out why the pistons are being picked 6,7, or 8 in the nba predictions thread. We believe (at least I do) it is because we are not a sexy team for lack of a better word. We don't have a superstar like T-mac or PP and we don't put up 120 pts on the scoreboard like the mavs or the kings. So the pistons are a boring team (not sexy) that just plays defense which is what wins games but most people tend to overlook that. Why do you think the pistons are picked so low if you don't believe my sexy theory then?Originally posted by <b>truebluefan</b>!
What does being sexy have to do with being a good team? Was The pistons of the 80s "sexy?" Was the celtics of the 80s "sexy?" If your good, your good.
I'd rank the Pistons over Boston for a few factors:Originally posted by <b>GeorgiaSports</b>!
Okay, where would YOU rank Detroit? They aren't the only team who plays defense in the East, NJ and Boston are very good defensive teams and have a nice offense to boot.
Surely you wouldn't rank the Pistons over the Nets or Celtics.
