    Q for those watching ESPN's Heat/Pistons coverage

    I admit that I am not objective given that I'm a big Heat fan, but...

    Is Hubie Brown absurdly pro-Pistons/anti-Heat in his comments or is it me?

    For example - he constantly praises Ben Wallace for being able to "guard Shaq one-on-one" I find myself shouting "what!?!?"

    Shaq has ALWAYS had his way with Wallace. This season, he averaged 28 points aginst Big Ben. Last night, though hindered by foul trouble, he still managed to have a high FG percentage and 8 rebounds.

    Non-Heat/Piston fans - is it noticable to you?

    Sorry, I think it is just you. It is a case of the "if the foul is called against my team its a bad call but if it is against the opposing team it was a good call" syndrome.

    I don't think its that at all.

    Brown spent most of Game 4 talking about how Dwyane Wade turns the ball over too much. True, he had 9 in Game 2, but he also had 32 points. For the series, Wade is shooting about 68% - and all Brown seems to have to say is how he can be forced into turnovers.

    Either he's pro-Detriot/anti-Heat, or he's just not very smart.

    If a player goes 13-17 from the field (as Wade did in Game 3) he can afford a few turnovers. After all, the majority of missed shots have the same effect as turnovers.
