Sports: Pistons vs. Lakers
Wednesday, 2004 June 2 - 8:52 pm
Who would've thought? The Pistons are in the NBA finals against the Lakers.

I grew up in the "Bad Boys" era of the Detroit Pistons, when they were the best and most despised team in basketball. Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Vinnie Johnson, Bill Laimbeer, Rick Mahorn, Dennis Rodman, John Salley: we loved them in Michigan, and everyone else hated them. I think people still blame them for transforming the way playoff basketball is played, with physical defense, low scoring games, rebounding, free throws, and fundamentals. They dismantled the once-indomitable "showtime" style of Magic Johnson's Lakers.

And so here we are again, with the Lakers again as heavy favorites, and the Pistons again the unexpected guest at the party. Honestly, I'm not holding my breath for the Pistons to win. But it'll be fun to watch.
