  • People saying that the pistons weren't old, yeah they weren't by age, but by nba miles on their body, they went to the conference finals 4 or 5 years in a row and 3 nba finals, They were worned down. Theres a reason Michael's first 3peat team, none of them were on the 2nd 3peat except scottie. Michael needed horace grant, or dennis rodman, When he had no horace or dennis, the magic who had horace bounced them out in 6 games.

  • Why is Stephen A Smith saying that the Pistons were old? Why does everyone say that? Isaiah Thomas was the same age Michael Jordan. Joe Dumars was younger than Michael Jordan and the same age as Scottie Pippen. Why do they keep saying that the pictures were old

  • Love them or hate them, you have to respect the game and recognize the 1989 Detroit Pistons as one of the greatest teams ever assembled. Period.

  • Max Kellerman is an idiot. If your a Bulls fan, and you don't acknowledge that the pistons were your road block, your nemesis, or the team that taught you how to overcome and win, then u too are an idiot! As a piston fan we HATED THE CELTICS! Despised them! Why? Because they broke our heart more than once....But it was that struggle vs Boston that made the Pistons Dynasty so wonderful! Give Credit Where Credit is Due!

  • you cant say the word great in just 1 playoff run and 1 championship. if youre a real great team you do this 3 times, 3 peat is the magic word for greatness, jordan pippen and the bulls did the 3 peat twice, that is why they are the best nba team ever.

  • The Pistons may not have been very old, but that doesn't mean the bulls beat this super Pistons team. The bulls were 11 games ahead of them that year, they were the clear favorites, and the Pistons barely even made it to the bulls in 91. If it was the 1989 Pistons with 63 wins and not 1991 50 win team that got swept by the Bulls then they'd have something. But please, they were clearly downhill and no one (besides Rodman) was of any significance in the NBA just only 2 seasons after. All the Bulls did was show that the Pistons were done and that they were going to be the best ever because they learned from the previous years against the Pistons which is why it was a clean sweep.

  • Sas will never agree what Max’s says even when he’s right in this situation pistons were not old it was Jordan against the pistons and that’s how Jordan made it then he was able to start trusting his teammates so Isaiah can say he beat the bulls but look how he had his team beat Jordan down they had to literally wear him down physically cuz they knew that was the only way I don’t know why Isaiah will not say that

  • Isaiah Thomas is a salty jealous bitter old man

  • Detroit weren't old, they had milage. Playing that brand of basketball for 5-6 years straight takes some years off you. Chicago in the 90s didn't face anyone as nearly as physical and dominant defensively like the Bad Boys. Yea everyone were tough, but not Body Boy tough. That's just my opinion.

  • Zeke, I'm still riding with you. You should forget about Chicago because Mike and his Bulls got it on lock. I know it hurts that a guy from South Carolina gets more love from your own hometown, but where Zeke failed is by not investing more time in the community where he won those championships. Now he's roaming around like a homeless nomad.
