They were the team you loved to hate. I always enjoyed watching Laimbeer and the freak Rodman. But Thomas? Man...he was just a bitch. TOTALLY different game back then. Great job putting this together

those Pistons teams were a disgrace to the game of basketball.

I remember the pistons growing up and this was just a mean dirty team they were not flashy just tough and rough....Labron James or Kobe Bryan would not have survived this era of basketball I guarantee it Labron would cry for sure...The NBA is soft now just like the NFL I am glad and thank God I was around to see this era of basketball I miss it.

no because lebron would have grew up with this being acceptable. Kind of like when a kid gets beat up by his dad growing up and he takes it. Til one day after working out and learning how to defend himself he says enough is enough and he pops his pop right in the mouth

+Tomas Garcia Jordan has MUCH better statistics than Kobe, in both the regular season and playoffs. Jordan won more championships in fewer seasons. Jordan won more finals MVPs. Jordan won more MVPs. Phil Jackson said Jordan was better. I could go on... Higher shooting percentage, more ppg, rpg, spg, apg etc.

What's funny is basketball isn't intended to be a contact sport, being "tough" doesn't mean shoving a guy in mid air that's fucking dirty. U want to lay some people out? Go lace up the cleats and put on the shoulder pads. Save the thug shit for off the court

Lol why did Parrish even hit Laimbeer on that play? Just 'cause he didn't like the guy?
Report spam or abuse
It was retaliation for Laimbeer's dirty play against Parrish. Parrish often twisted his ankle whenever the Celtics played the Pistons. According to Larry Bird it was because Laimbeer slid his feet under jump shooters (often Parrish) attempting to injure them as they land.

For all the talk about Laimbeer being dirty, at least he didnt sucker punch anyone, like Parrish and Barkley did to him. Nothing dirtier or more cowardly than sucker punching someone.

The NBA should change the rules of today's NBA for 1 year back to the 80s style of basketball. It would be more entertaining to watch to see Joakim Noah decapitating LeBron's head if he went for a slam dunk; just like what Laimbeer did to Jordan.

Loakum, yes there were people from the suburbs celebrating the Red Wings winning Stanley Cup but the crowd not nearly as big when the Pistons win it.  Simple fact is this:  African Americans don't for the most part watch hockey.  Now if somehow by a freak accident the Lions EVER won the Superbowl, their will be a million + in downtown Detroit going wild.

This team would put Lebron in the hospital. Lebron wouldn't last 5 minutes. He would cry right after
Report spam or abuse
+bulaia Rodman didn't think twice about doing it on Shaq, why would he think twice about Lebron?  He even got in a wrestling ring with Karl Malone who's larger than Lebron If Lebron played in the 80's, as in started his career at that point he'd be fine with it I think.  But if he were thrust right now into a finals series against the Pistons he go home crying.  After playing all these years with soft players and flopping rules, he would not be able to adapt. That said the "Jordan Rules" wouldn't work on Lebron because they're two different players.  They play too differently.  Now maybe they'd come up with the Lebron Rules tailored to him specifically.

+shinjig I bet lebron rules would be like destroy him mentally not physically. :) because lebron is really known with having week mental toughness detroit will destroy him. few people realize that it wasnt the physicality of detroit that made them champs but because of their mental game.

Report spam or abuse
Well if you guys disagree about the 89-90 Pistons being a great defensive team because of the  rough play, then how about the more "tame" Pistons of 03-2004 who won it purely on defense?  
Report spam or abuse
According to a Bleacher Report analysis using defensive rating (points allowed per possession), league average defensive rating, and pace, the 1963-64 Boston Celtics is the greatest defensive team in NBA history. Most of the other teams on the list are from the 60s Celtics, 90s Bulls, and 00s Spurs dynasties. No Pistons team made the top 10 and none of the Bad Boys Pistons were among the 20 teams on the list. The 2003-04 Pistons were #11, so they were very good (as +Rob Moldovan mentions) but not great. Perhaps the Bad Boys teams are slightly overrated defensively but very underrated offensively.

As a Laker fan during those days, I liked the Pistons because they would often give the Celtics and Bulls hell.  I don't know who was worse Laimbeer or Rodman?  Isiah was like the general while Laimbeer, Mahorn, and Rodman were the enforcers.

yea, these guy might have sobs but they were 10 deep and knew how to win. They were one bad foul call away from winning three straight  titles. They had some really good players. Rodman was a athletic marvel and acted crazy too. Even Lambeer could rebound really good and was very good at three pointers. Also, he could get a whole team off their game by himself. You had to be tougher to play in the 80s and ealry 90s. Maybe only San Antonio from today could compete mentally with bad boys.

So the pistons of the bad boy era were talentless thugs now?

this team was the biggest scandal of the nba, and that they could win two Championships the way they played, is ludacris to me. Joe Dumars the only player with talent.. The rest is just pussies who fight instead play basketball... and it was a good thing Isiah didnt make the 92 dream team.. 'cause he was a god damn bastard, who told his team mates to try injury the other players... best defence ever?? not even close, go look at some stats... Bill Laimbeer the only player is NBA history to break multiple ankles in the same game (when he took out Bird, Parrish and Mchale in 88) this is a bull shit team. glad they spilt and all became no lifers of failures..

Dumars was a turncoat traitor. He should have stood in unity with his team, to make their last act of defiance in walking out on the game. And he turned the Pistons into a soft, 'Spurs' kind of team. Killed the Detroit Bad Boy spirit. Shunned Laimbeer, who would have been THE ultimate coach for the Pistons. Im glad they finally fired Dumars.

I mean "real basketball" is the sense where defense was a huge emphasis. Nowdays the NBA has moved closer to the Euro game in that teams would rather put up 120pts+ rather than aim to hold a team under 80 pts. You can count on 1 hand how many good teams play defense in the NBA today.

+Don'tcallmeshirley  From real life. Like when all the lesser ladies hate on the super hot girl that all the guys notice and want. They dont hate her for any legitimate reason. They ares simply jealous of all the attention she gets that they wish they had. I.E. the Bulls hated Rodman, until he joined their team. Then they saw how valuable he was towards winning a second Three-peat.
Report spam or abuse
+kkelleybass Hate is a strong word, but I “hate” the fact that the Bulls and Jordan are considered the greatest thing NBA ever produced only because they won 6 championships, given that the mid 80’s Celtics and Bird are infinitely better, but competed in a much stronger and physical era. That’s not jealousy, but a feeling of miscarriage of justice. As for insecure girls, they’re just stupid.

Report spam or abuse
Rodman was 100% athleticism and could stay in front of dudes much faster than LeBron, especially when he was in Detroit. All you have to do against LeBron is make him a perimeter player whether he passes or shoots. If he managed to get passed Rodman or Aguire or whoever and try to attack the cup, he'd have the entire Pistons frontline waiting to clothesline him. The Pistons defense was always premeditated and who's to say they wouldn't have a "LeBron rules" if they faced him?
