Ahhh. Sad. I had no idea the two incidents were connected but it makes perfect sense.
Is that really why that happened?
As far as wife...do you mean Carmen Electra...or somebody else?
No. The crazy one. Did she do the naked picture on a motorcycle or something? . I think Dennis did one too. Lol. My memory is fuzzy. The girl had really short hair. Real light blonde or White hair almost IIRC. She looked super sleezy. She wore "f" me heels I'm pretty sure. She was very slender. At least I thought it was his wife because that's what the crowd said. "That's Rodmans woman". IIRC Carmen was sort of dark completed and large busted ? My memory isn't good on that part Maybe it was his g/f.
Carmen was several years later after he had left the Pistons. It was his first wife Annie Bakes.
Yeah! That's the one. Thanks, Dre!!I thought I recognized her and the crowd did too. I was second guessing myself. I'm not sure but I think I was at the Silverdome because I could slip into the rich seats close enough to see her well.
Thar she blows!!
Are they still printing these books? My daughters birthday is coming up and I'd love to get her a copy.
The Bad Boys. One of my fondest memories. The Pistons vs. Portland. I think the series was tied 1-1 in a 2-3-2 format. Anyhow, was it Clyde Drexler who talked crap after Portland stole the 2nd game in Detroit when he said something like "The series will never return to Detroit". And he was right. The Pistons swept them in Portland. I have very fond memories of all of the championship teams in Detroit. But I loved the Bad Boys the most. And I know I will never ever love a team that much again. They were so unique. Really, I believe we were privileged to call them our own.
Yeah the Pistons had not won in Portland in 17 years so Clyde and company assumed that it was theirs to win, but the Pistons put an end to that losing streak sweeping the three and becoming the first NBA champ to sweep the three road games under the 2-3-2 format. Coincidentally, 14 years later they also became the first champ to win all three at home in the 2004 Championship series..
I ain't got no idea that some 10+14+17 years have been pasted, it was like last year, my goodness am I already really that old ?
Neat article by Ken English. The basketball blame game: It's time to stop - NBA - Sporting News
Austin Daye is in the western conference finals... man!
Darko has a ring.
Austin Daye - NBA champion, a Piston legend.
We need veteran leadership that has won it all. SVG needs to be all over that this offseason.
Aha I guess Rip Hamilton has officially retired..... as he is the co-host today on ESPN's Numbers Never Lie with Michael Smith today (replacing Jemele Hill) So far doing a good job on ESPN 2 right now. (without the face mask)
Like I said, Rip has always been, like I said, good with words.
Good that he reminded the fans that this 2014 Spurs championship team was similar to the Pistons 2004 team in workmanship. Too bad we couldn't get over the hump any more with Flip burning out the players so that each of his teams flamed out in game 6 of the ECF. Pop manages the minutes and plays 11-12 players a game and that was too much for then Thunder and Heat to keep up with.
