5 straight ECF and only 1 NBA Championship to show for it. If we would've won the 2005 NBA Championship we would've had back to back titles just like the "Bad Boys" of '89 and '90. However, as it stands we're the only team of the 5 straight conference finals to win just a single title. All the other teams on the list had somewhat of a "dynasty" or "mini-dynasty" (the bad boys). I guess I'm just really confused as to the identity of this team and how their legacy will be remembered. Looking back at this era in time all that will be remembered are the 3-peat Lakers dynasty of 2000-2002, and the Spurs dynasty (winning 4 titles in 9 years). At least the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers can be content with their 1 year title run, but what do we make of the Detroit Pistons? They can't be considered a dynasty seeing how the Spurs have buried them in the dust. They can't even be compared to the bad boys since we didn't win back to back championships like them. I guess with all the hype about the 5 straight ECF, I feel diasppointed after all of this and don't know how this team will be remembered. At least with the other Detroit teams, the Red Wings are a lot like the Atlanta Braves in that they've been in 14-15 straight playoffs but are always up and down, having both success and busts throughout. They did at least accumulate 3 stanley cup trophies in a period of 5-6 years. The current Detroit Tigers for now are a 1 year title run team, but maybe over the next 5 years they'll look to establish themselves as a superior baseball team. And the Lions we all know are just %%%%. So it seems almost every other Detroit sports team has an identity besides the Pistons. What do you guys make of this? I really hope the Pistons get their %%%% together next year and maybe win 1 or 2 more championships with this core, which would establish themselves as a dynasty (3 titles in 7 years, 7 straight ECF). NOW THAT IS A RESPECTABLE ACCOMPLISHMENT!!
