New rivalry brewing between Nets, Pacers

See the Pistons have beaten the bejabers outta both teams the last two years. yet here'es your marguee eastern conference rivalry. The pistons aren't even there! the OLD bad boy pistons are... these new boring team concept pistons aren't!

They don't have a marketable player for casual fans to like. And their style of game is well, somewhat boring. They are a great team and know to win, but they don't excite people doing it. Most people can't even name the starting lineup for the Pistons. Probably outside of Wallace, most casual fans dont even know anyone else on the team.

They may have beaten the crap out of the Pacers and Nets, but they haven't done anything of note in the Playoffs like the Nets have.

Yyzlin is right, too.

They will have their chance to prove themselves in the playoffs this year. They did more in the playoffs last year than what the Pacers did. In any case, they may be a boring team, but they are 5-2 against the Nets and Pacers, I don't think that will magically change in the playoffs.
