Rookie Carlos Delfino has told reporters in his native Argentina that he is done with Larry Brown and done with the Pistons.

"They used me, they treated me like trash," Delfino said in an English translation of the stories posted on FIBA.com. "They should transfer me or cut me. From this place, I have the worst memories of my career, and I want to go back home. For this guy (Brown), I will not play anymore. And I don't want to stay here."

The Pistons think Delfino has the potential to be a good player and would love to see what he can do with a full season. In other words, they may not be done with him.

Interesting article. He has basically been nothing but trouble the entire season. I think he did show some promise though, and I hope we persist with him.

Detroit versus Philly, not long to go now........

He has an enourmous amount of potential, too bad he feels that way though, it's his own fault. How does he figure they used him lol? He was out for 90% of the season. I used to stick up for Delfino but after this I'm not quite sure, he's just being a little baby about this.

Delfino has a lot of potential. But he's a whiny ***** ass little ***** that needs to beat down with a stick! I HATE his attitude. And because of his attitude, thus far I HATE him as a player.

Boy are the refs trying to keep philly in this game. Iverson's new name is TI for Traveling Iverson....sooooo many travels it's ridiculous. They messed up Tayshauns block and counted Webers basket that hit the shot clock and that's just a few of the bad calls. Horrible. I have a feeling it's going to be like this for the Pistons though, Stern does not want to superstarless Final matchup (SA and Det)....

Wow Detroit played crappy in the 1rst quarter. Now it's the middle of the 3rd, and they're up by 12. McDyess and Sheed are playing great. thumbup.gif

Tell me about it, this is just me but the Detroit-San Antonio games are my personal favs to watch. I'd rather watch a trench fight 75-80 game rather than a 110-118 game. Same goes for hockey with me as well, give me a 1-0 game rather than a 4-5 game. It's all about suspense with me, there is no suspense in high scoring games.

I like the way you think!

Oh btw interesting game... it's was almost like the Pistons spotted the 76ers a 16 point 1st quarter lead before they took off their warmup pants and brought the pain.

In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

tell us how you really feel though.

i think the pistons are better this year than they were last year. mcdyess, a comfortable, healthy rasheed, the new and improved tayshaun. last year every series was a struggle except the lakers series. the pistons were frustrating because they never seemed to deliver the knockout blow. it will be interesting to see if they do it this year.
predictions:
pistons over 76ers in 5
pistons over bullets in 6
pistons over heat in 7
pistons over spurs (not if duncan doesn't get healthy very quickly) in 6

He's learning from Rasheed. Tech fouls lead to great b-ball!

Another blowout and yet another poorly officiated game...some of the calls the refs make on the Pistons are ridiculous. Assuming it's a Miami Detroit ECF matchup I can only imagine the calls the Heat and Shaq would get, Stern would love to see Shaq in the finals soley for ratings...
