NS: Considering he’s just started to make his way into the rotation because of the broken hand that he sustained in the pre-season, he’s coming along nicely. It took more than a few games for him to get acclimated to the NBA game, but he’s done a nice job filling in for Chauncey Billups so far. He’s a combo guard that has for the most part played the one for Detroit. He’s fast, likes to drive the lane and has skills that will develop even more as he gets more games under his belt.
NS: Ask any one of his teammates throughout the years and they will tell you that Rasheed is as solid as they come in the locker room. When Sheed isn’t on the floor shaking up the other teams offense you will find him helping the rookies on the team mold their game. Sheed’s doing everything he needs to do for this team to win games. He’s even made it a point to play more in the paint, something Detroit fans have been wishing for. Most of all he’s is the anchor to Detroit’s solid defensive presence. So in Detroit…..numbers don’t matter.
ND: Why have the Pistons obtained such amazing things out of Chauncey Billups whereas the Nuggets could not?
ND: How far can Detroit go this year and if they do end up in the finals is there somebody in the West that you would like to see?
ND: Who's will dictates the outcome of this game? The Nuggets with their motto of, "We'll just score and hope for the best",or the Pistons' yeoman defense?
NS: The Pistons will not try to play the Nuggets game, so look for the Pistons to clamp down defensively. If you get us in a run and gun battle we have the legs on our bench to give you a fight. We will know what kind of game it’s going to be after the first quarter. Good luck, but not really! Go Pistons.
Natalie also wanted to know a few things about the Nuggets...
NS: Has the Allen Iverson – Carmelo Anthony experiment lived up to its expectations? Has chemistry been an issue?
NS: Being in the West and knowing that winning 50 games might not even get you in the Playoffs, what do you think The Nuggets chances to make it are?
NS: What blockbuster trade impacted the Nuggets chances of coming out of the West?
NS: The Pistons have one heck of a starting five and a new and improved bench, what or who will Denver try to stop to come away with the win?
