    I first fell in love with the sport of basketball and the Pistons with the Chuck Daly coached Bad Boys.

    RIP Coach Daly. Thank you for all of the fond memories.

    It really hit me the last few days, just how old I am now. How far removed I am from being a kid or a young man.

    I hope Chuck went in peace, and wish his family well. It's not that he was a great coach, but that he was an exceptional person and exceptional people help shape the world.

    Yes, DetNews has a ton of old articles from the various points of Daly's tenure with the Pistons also.

    Special Report: Chuck Daly

    I still think Tay should go for Tripuka's old look. No way he's not getting charge calls against LeBron if he looks like that.

    I had those tapes from the 89-90 Pistons Championships. Motor City Bad Boys. I can still hear Chucks distictive voice commenting on the games, on the players. RIP Chuck. Thanks.

    How ironic that such a nice guy coached the baddest team ever. Could it have been done by anyone else? Methinks maybe not.

    Nice touch on the front page.

    RIP Chuck :rip: :(

    Thanks so much for the great memories you brought to me personally and the city of Detroit (and Piston fans everwhere) for winning back to back championships (was robbed of a 3-peat).

    You just knew this was inevitable the day it was announced he had pancreatic cancer and it had already spread to the liver... a sure death sentence. The only regret I have is that the Pistons didn't do anything this year to honor Chuck and the Bad Boys and they had plenty of time (and games) in which to do this.

    Love ya buddy. My best wishes and condolences go out to him and his family.
