It's funny how the mid to late 80s era of sports was all about being a tough guy, or going beyond the norm. the NBA had a "Newness" to it that hasn't been duplicated since, and those Pistons teams were right in the thick of it.
I remember being a Magic/Lakers fan, and watching Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, and Vinnie Johnson go on shooting sprees where they couldn't miss if they tried, all while holding other teams to 80-90 points (that was HUGE in an era of 120 point games ok?).
Anyway, like everyone's been saying, thanks for being a pivotal part of my teen years Chuck (amazing how Chuck's the only coach who "looked" like the style of ball that he coached lol).
