Pistons Bad Boys Remembered

Natalie over at Need4Sheed drew our attention to Detroit Bad Boys post For the new school: meet the "Prince of Darkness":
I'm always struck by how many young Piston fans there are nowadays as a result of the team's continued success. And in light of this being a relatively slow news day, I'd like to take some time out to provide the kee-ids a brief bit of Piston history. Specifically, I'm speaking to all of you born into the late 80s and early 90s, those only able to remember back to the days of Terry Mills in teal (shiver).

Now I may not be able to wax poetic about the days of Dave Bing and Bob Lanier (I'll leave that to the gen before me), but I can spin a yarn or two over the Bad Boys, circa 1988-1990 ... But rather than listen to me preach, I'll let the below list of quotes - and one famous poster shot - begin to tell the tale of the baddest of the Bad.
Includes such gems as Legendary Piston coach, Chuck Daly, on Laimbeer."He would drive people insane and then just walk away. He was like Gandhi."

Read the rest from Detroit Bad Boys and add your own memories!

Be sure to check out Natalie's own memories and the 30 MB Bad Boys Pistons Highlight video (take that Friday office productivity!)
