Pistons relieved to get McDyess back

From Dana Gauruder's blog:

The loss of McDyess and Chauncey Billups has also taken a toll on the club emotionally. They may have been the most popular players in the locker room. McDyess' smile, laughter and easy-going nature was sorely missed.

"The fact of getting Dice back, not just from a basketball standpoint but from having him around, you saw guys had a little more pep to their step today, they were a little more talkative," Curry said. "I told them that we've been walking around for a week or so like a cloud was over us."

Of course, not everyone is happy: fans in Cleveland and Boston are calling foul, but who cares what they think?
