On April 29, 2003 Drew Sharp wrote a column for the Detroit Free Press saying Pistons head coach, Rick Carlisle was on the verge of being fired. The Pistons were down 1-3 to the Orlando Magic in the second round of the NBA playoffs. The Pistons went on to win the next three game to take the series. Sharp took some major criticism from just about everyone in Detroit sports, from fans, journalists to sports radio.
In this clip, he comes on WRIF just prior to the Detroit/Philadelphia series and refuses to admit he was wrong. He goes on to predict Detroit would lose to Philly in 6. The Pistons ended up beating the 76ers in six games however. Then as we all know, they won the NBA championship the following year.

“Then as we all know, they won the NBA championship the following year.” With a different coach. Drew was right on this one……that sucks.
Nice try “Dave.”
Hey drew since you hate the lions so much, do everybody in the southwest Michigan area and go back to Cleveland only if the lions make the playoffs, I’m sure you would rather covert your dream team
