Big Ben to Chicago

Maybe Shaq can deliver on his repeat guarantee to the Miami Heat fans. The Heat no longer have to worry about Ben Wallace with the Pistons. Big Ben is taking his defensive act to Bulls.

$48 million was an insult so the 4-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year is moving to Chicago for a reported $60 million over four years.

The Heat have to be the favorites to repeat in the East. The Pistons may rebound if they can sign center Joel Przybilla to a free agent contract. Right now, the Heat have to retain Pat Riley as their head coach and keep the hunger for a second title.

Pistons VP, Joe Dumars, will get roasted for letting Wallace hit the door. I don’t think he’s crazy. You can’t cripple your salary cap.

The Pistons went to four straight Eastern Conference title games, winning two and becoming NBA champions in 2004. Piston fans should give Dumars plenty of respect and trust him to take care of the team long term.

The NBA is changing as commish David Stern wants to get rid of defensive minded teams. The Bad Boys are going to have to start running and gunning.
