As far as I know, the last Pistons' triple-double came in 2003 by Ben Wallace -- of the unorthodox points/rebounds/blocks variety (12/19/10 respectively). If the promotion (or the chain) even existed that far back, that was the last time the Pistons provided their fans with the delicious luxury of some free Arby's curly fries. I don't care what state I'm in the next time it happens, or if the promotion is still ongoing, I'm going straight to the nearest Arby's to cash that box score in -- exactly like this California man who successfully exchanged his Red Wings box score for some fries after Zetterberg scored a hat trick in Game 2 vs. the Coyotes:
If you're not a Detroit Red Wings fan and tonight's Game 7 (9 PM EST) doesn't interest you, there's still a full slate of NBA playoff games to watch/comment on.
- Game 5 of the Celtics/Heat tip it off at 7 PM EST on NBA TV. Will the Celtics close it out on their home court? No matter what happens, I hope Dwyane Wade shames decrepit KG like this again.
- Game 5 of the Cavs/Bulls starts at 8 PM EST on TNT. If you wait until halftime of the Celtics/Heat game before switching over, you might miss this one.
- The Bestern Conference games begin at 9:30 PM EST on NBA TV with Game 5 of the Spurs/Mavs series. If you put a lot of stock into the seeds and not statistics, the Spurs 3-1 series lead is a surprising one and they can finish it tonight in Dallas.
- Last, but certainly not least, the much anticipated Game 5 of the Lakers/Thunder series begins at 10:30 PM EST on TNT. Kevin Durant might not wash his face, but he's quickly emerging as a superstar on the biggest stage (up to this point). I think this series goes 7, but I can't see Kobe being taken down as the greatest, yet.
Consider this your fresh playoff thread -- the 1,000+ comment open thread is epic, but it's now buried and slow. Go.
