everyones talking about the celtics grabbing PJ (and soon cassell) and barry going to the Spurs...
its pretty funny how this little gem has gotten the backseat.
as usual, detroit slowly gets better and better and is under the radar.
no one thinks about detroit... they creep around yet have the 2nd best record in the NBA... and yet are barely even mentioned among the top teams and their activity.

they bolster their frount court by adding a shot blocking expertise with a bit of gas still left in the tank in Ratliff.
in a few games this season, ratliff has put up 6/3, while thats nothing to write home about, his 2 blocks per game is.
they just landed a big body in the middle who will most definitely block shots and change even more shots during their playoff run.
this is a BIG acquisition for them, yet no one cares.

IMO, Detroit will run the east come playoff time... and no one seems to see it coming.
