I’m one of those old school guys that tends to brag about the golden years and get into arguments about how film, music and basketball was “better” in decades past than nowadays. One thing from those years I wont brag about is the Detroit Bad Boys of the late 80s. It’s not that I didn’t have respect for them or didn’t think they were a great (really great) team that would destroy the majority of teams today, but I was a Lakers fan back then and you couldn’t like the great Pistons if you liked the GREATER Lakers.
What I found more interesting than the ESPN documentary was a lot of the comments from current NBA players that were watching the Bad Boys special. Here’s a few of them followed by some great tribute videos to Thomas, Joe D, Rodman, Salley, Vinnie, Mahorn and the rest of the squad.
