Everyone remembers the Bad Boy era and how it rose up and fell away. One of the similarities is how we 'lost' Rodman---best defensive player---off the team and the rest of them with age just disintegrated. Also similar is how MJ finally got help in the way Pippen, could we be seeing the same in LeBron with Larry Hughes? We also had a coaching change that did not help. Pistons have been on top for about the same amount of years---2 finals with one winning the championship, and then rolling through the season last year only to come up short in the conference finals. Bad boys won 2 out of 3 finals and then lost to the Bulls who were rising. Will we see the team deteriorate like the Bad Boys did, or do you think Joe will not let that happen?
