I am not proud to be a Detroit Pistons fan
Enough is enough. How many times do we have to see players on this team moan and complain about everything that happens, such as issues with the coach, fouls and playing time? These guys get paid millions of dollars to play a game, and they can't even show up for practice. Pathetic. In no other profession can you simply not show up to work if you don't like how things are going (Unless you are a Wisconsin politician). Most people get fired for pulling that kind of garbage. I don't care about the good memories of 2004 anymore. Send crybabies Prince and Hamilton packing. They are nothing but aging detriments to the team's future. Ben Wallace should follow close behind, along with anyone else who is not committed to playing hard every night. The team should not be laughing on the bench, when they are not the laughingstock of the league. Jokes on you, Pistons. The remaining three starters from that '04 team have forever tarnished their legacies, and will be most likely remembered for this immature stunt they pulled.
John Kuester needs to go as well, as no coach has lost control of a team in such spectacular fashion has he. Sure, he faced huge odds coming into a situation with the massive egos on his team, but to have players boycotting you? He is in over his head, and has lost this team for good. To top it off, he was ejected in the game, and his players laughed like he was a joke. Buh bye.
EDIT: The six Pistons who did suit up and play deserve some serious recognition. Thank you Charlie V, Greg Monroe, Ben Gordon, DaJuan Summers, Jason Maxiel and especially Will Bynum who said,
