One of the most underrated teams in the modern era of basketball is the 89-90 Detroit Pistons, known as the Bad Boys. ESPN Films 30 for 30 series will be returning after a month to bless the world with an official “Bad Boys” episode, chronicling the history between head coach Chuck Daly, Thomas, Joe Dumars, Bill Laimbeer, Dennis Rodman and John Salley.
Speaking of Michael Jordan (see last name for sarcasm), the Detroit Pistons were on their way to becoming a dynasty before Isiah Thomas became plagued with injuries in the final 6 years of his career, which would eventually lead to early retirement. The Bad Boys can be credited for leading to the evolution of Mike Jordan, after eliminating him from the playoffs 3 consecutive years and creating “The Jordan Rules”; which the entire team would solely target Michael. Get a preview of the upcoming episode, then look for its premiere April 17th at 8pm ET on ESPN.
