Pistons Conspiracy???

Did I just see RIchard Hamilton drop the ball out of bounds on the last play of the game?

He caught the ball and dropped it out of bounds. No shot, no shot attempt.

Did I see the seasoned veteran Antonio McDyes miss a free throw to tie the game with 2 minutes left?

Did I just see Mr Big Shot foul out of game 5 in the second round of the playoffs? By the way he did not even have anyone to guard. No worries defence for number 1. If you dont show up in the playoffs, you are of no use to Detroit Basketball. Go to Indiana where they accept that kind of thing.

I am going to lay this out on the line. Usually conspiracy theories are for crazies that think that the CIA is watching their every move. I must be crazy, cause I think this is possible.

Dan Gilbert owns the Cleveland Caveliers. Dan Gilbert owns Quicken Loans. Rock Financial is a Quicken Loans company. Rock Financial has spent millions in advertising with the Detroit Pistons over the last 2 seasons.
What would it cost?
What would it take for Dan Gilbert to write a check to the Detroit Pistons organization to push this series to 7 games? Or maybe “overpay” for advertising.
The Cleveland Caveliers have done an outstanding job marketing the teams new look and of course the teams star player Lebron James. People are spending alot of money getting to and watching the Cavs. Obviously the longer this series goes, the more money the Cavs make not just this year, but years to come.

How is it possible that the Pistons blow out the Cavs in game one, then give away 3 in a row?
What we have now are 2 remaining games of which the Pistons will easily win.

Unfortunatly the NBA needs this. They need Lebron James to win games in the playoffs. They need exciting close games where the underdog wins. They dont need a defensive minded team to blowout the competition in the second round of the playoffs. Its boring to the “street ballers”.

After game 1 I think the NBA called Joe Dumars, and the Cavs reps and made a deal.
What will it take to make this series exciting for the whole nation, not just Detroit?

And here you have it. Everyone, not just Detroit and Cleveland will be watching the next 2 games to see if “Amish Lebron” can beat the returning Eastern Conference champions. And mark my words, they will not defeat the Detroit Pistons. I Guaran-flippin-tee it………

    are you serious? conspiracy theory? PLEASE! bottom line, they’ve been healthy all year, cruising through the season without a care in the world. BUT, sheed tweaks the ankle, and all of a sudden their chemistry is off and they don’t have enough time to recover. although mcdeyess played great, the other guys were out of sync. it ain’t over, but please quit your complaining and whining about this conspiracy theory crap!

    So you dont think its possible?
    You dont think that the NBA is in desperate need of Lebron James playing as long as possible every year?
    Free your mind. Money talks, ignorance get trampled

    dude, you’re really stretching here. Ben Wallace goes 0-7 from the frickin FT line. Chauncey has SIX turnovers, RIP gets blocked 5 times. so you’re saying the pistons players are all in on this conspiracy? PLAY THE DAMN GAME, and WIN IT ON THE COURT! not crying about some frickin conspiracy.

    Yes, The NBA loves that Lebron is still in the playoffs. Yes, The Cavs and even the Pistons from a business and money making stance love that this series has gone to a Game 7. The Piston players how ever do not get paid more if there is a 4 game series blow out or a Game 7 nail-biting, seat clenching, throw it up to beat the clock win.
    We are witnessing history and greatness and this possibly could be one the greatest individual performances by a young superstar. Even if the Cavs lose, He has done more for a team, city and franchise at the young age of 21 then anyone else and he has not even hit his prime. Pistons do not fear the Cavs, they fear King James and rightly so. If Lebron and the Cavs win…It will be Colossal, not a conspiracy.
