Vacation time!

The Cavs finally swept the Pistons.  It was not unexpected.  Let’s deal with the aftermath because the usual stories will be how great LBJ was, how well the Cavs played as a team, how poorly the Pistons’ regulars played, blah, blah, blah.

The two biggest contracts on the Pistons books are AI and Sheed.  It’s a safe bet that AI is goin somewhere else.  Where that will be is anyone’s guess.  Sheed may or may not come back depending on if he is willing to restructure his deal.  In Stank-0’s opinion, Sheed won’t have a problem finding a place to play.  Teams would love a declining, multi-positional big who can splash treys around in big game situations.  If for nothing else the information he can impart to the youngbloods onthe team. 

As for the Pistons, they have enough pieces to be competitive in 3-4 years.  Their youngins need to get some experience under their belts.  They will not be in contention for a very long time, though.  This also does not help their cause in 2010 in grabbing a big time free agent.  Who wants to play for an underwhelming team?  Exactly.  It’s like the Knicks without the lure of NYC, you got nothing. 

As for the playoffs, the Cavs will advance to at least the East Conference Finals.  They are 3-1 in the season series against both the Atlanta Hawks and Miami Heat.  King me, checkers!
