The Pistons are down, but they are far from out. Why? Because they still have spirit.

I hear more anti-Curry talk now more than ever.There are rumors that Iverson is finished. People say that we are nothing without Chauncey.

But they are wrong. This team still runs on D-Town motor oil. And it's not ready for a change.

Not again.

The season isn't over. Calm down. There's still hope.

So have faith. This team still has a burning fire, and no biased reffing or subtle downsizing from the media can change that.

Remember, this is a team that plays better when it is the underdog.

So wait for the surprise. It's coming.

I know it. We all feel it.

It's light pulse is growing.

So be strong.

They may have a losing record, but the Pistons are not out.

So don't hate.

You'll be sorry.
