Sports Film Of The Week: Bad Boys

‘What if I told you, sometimes you have to be bad to be good.”

Title: Bad Boys

Plot: The hard-nosed Detroit Pistons of the late 1980s and early 90s seemed willing to do anything to win. And sandwiched between the Lakers-Celtics era and the MJ-inspired Bulls’ run of championships, they did just that.

Typical YouTube comment: “Loved this team. tough, ill break your ass if you tried to come into the paint, defensive, and unified team.. if these guys played against guys today, holy crap… bodies would be broken.”
