    My guess is they'll overdramatize the Detroit element.
    I just don't want it to be another documentary of the run down Detroit.
    Hopefully...some positives about the D.........

    This will be real treat for my DVR after being abused all year long recording the miserable Piston games.

    The Bad Boys are the greatest version of our favorite team.
    The Bad Boys illustrate what it is to be a Detroit sports fan. ...Hated by all. - Loved by US!
    I'm VERY much looking forward to watching this.
    If you're too young to remember '89 & '90 or if you've only recently become a Pistons fan, I highly recommend watching this doc and reading up on these guys.

    2004 was a damn good team and a great story of some discarded guys coming together. I enjoyed watching the "Goin to Work" dudes.

    ...But.
    ...The Bad Boys were absolutely LEGENDARY.

    Thanks Chuck!

    Players are equal for me as far as a favorite team...
    it's the coach that makes the difference for the Bad Boys....
    No coach in our history holds a candle to Chuck Daly...IMLTHO

    BDL is correct. You have to leave that slot open for a future Lions coach that can actually get it done.

    They will eventually be selling it on DVD I believe. Maybe only as a box set, though.

    Is this a Chat worthy event or is everyone going into their man caves to watch this on their big screen TV's with pizza, beer and popcorn?

    I'm sure if this documentary turns out poorly, it will be Singler's fault.

    I was at that game at the forum in June 1988 where Zeke hobbled his way to the 25 points in the 3rd quarter. We were hosed by the"phantom call"..and I knew powers that be (haters) would not allow us to come back in the next game and win game 7.....so I stayed at home and Mrs. Dre...a long time Laker lover attended the game in my place with her mother and of course she came home smiling.
