Wherever BW went, they paid way too much for him. Anyone who watched the playoffs knows that da Prince was the workhorse in on most every play, whereas BW played like crap.

Da Prince is in Da Palace!~
Ben Wallace plays like he played in the playoffs, all year long though. He doesn't score, he plays defense and gets boards. That's his role. I have no idea what made CHI offer him that much because they were the best defensive team in the NBA last year.

y'all are missing the big picture though, what wallace does doesn't show up in the boxscores. wallace will hugely be missed, nazr may score 15 points but he's gonna get scored on and allow more. like tony said it would be like us losing porter. it will be a big hit even if it doesn't show. now rip don't have no one to save his ass when he can't defend, no one is gonna fear driving to the basket anymore cause narz doesn't block shots. and wallace did not pull a ARE he left cause the pistons front office is retarded and didn't fire flip. wallace would've stayed if flip didn't return. also you can't replace a what four time defensive player of the year. nazr can't stay with quick ppl, wallace can. it's over for the pistons, if you want to lie to yourself and say it's gonna be ok well go ahead and do that. lol

They'll miss Ben Wallace sure, but they'll still be one of the best teams in the East. Nazr Mohammed is only a stop-gap but he can give them a little more of a scoring option...it's obvious that the Pistons will end up running a center-by-committee...they can rotate in Kelvin Cato and Dale Davis (not to mention McDyess when they're playing small ball). The Mavericks basically did the same thing this year with Diop, Dampier, and Mbenga and they found their way to the finals. None of those guys were exactly all-stars either.

I think you'll see Tayshaun Prince develop into a premier player in the league starting next season. I don't see the Pistons dropping off that much next season. They won't win the NBA championship, but they'll still be one of the better teams in the East.

I have an idea rather than arguing about whether Detriot will carry the East again or not, how about we let them play and find out. I am not above saying, "Hey I was really wrong!" Are you? Didn't think so, see you next season and the Pistons WILL be head of the East! :)

i won't be wrong so go ahead and admitt it right now lol j/p. just as long as y'all don't try any fancy passing, or throw to hard, narz just might be able to hold onto the ball to score. nazr brings no leadership. and now y'all have no one to be that real leader, and no one to hold sheed from being a retard with the refs

On a more serious note, me thinks Ben left because of Flip Sanders, at least he helped Ben make that decision. I am basing this on Flip's complete interest in OFFENSE and Ben is a Defensive guy. Of course the 68 million or whatever he got did most certainly sway him, also. Can't really be mad at Wallace for taking the money, I would have done the same. NOT!
