    I'll probably take the Chicago Blues over Motown, and that is toughie.

    Which is of course still possible if the evil twin Pistons show up tonight.

    And after Skiles called the team out in the press today (e.g., "we have to find someone Gordan can guard"), I'm pretty much willing to say that if the Pistons win tonight it's pretty much over.

    Detroit Bad Boys is running a series of Rivalry posts.

    A Rivalry Remembered: Pistons fans at Detroit Bad Boys

    A little self pimpage follows...

    This was one of my memories of the Bad Boys / Bulls era.

    Jazz was actually born on the plantations in the fields and the churches of the same as blues. It was then brought to New Orleans where it was combined with Creole music to become the early form of modern Jazz which then migrated to Kansas City and Chicago. From there to New York and then to Los Angeles and Paris.

    Rosc, has anybody thanked the Bulls for that Shaq whacking. I'm glad they did.
    The Bench, I think he's Turkish.

    I've read some comments about how the bulls-pistons rivalry isn't living up to the hype. We've outclassed them so far but in my mind, this is just a beginning. The Bulls are on the rise. The pistons are peaking right now. Chicago has the 9th pick in the draft on a deep, young and athletic team. Against that, we have amir johnson.

    Its like how every year we had to face the Celtics. Right now we're giving them something to be bitter about. Unless that team implodes in a few years, it'll come to the playoffs ready for war.

    Yeap they gotta wait their turn.
    They can't panic or they'll drop out of the playoffs and need to start over.
    Kinda like Boston a couple years ago.

    Chicago won't panic cause they have a "calm hand" as their coach....

    Rivalries are built on matchups, flashpoints, confrontations, epic battles, powerful homecourts, and bulletin board material.

    We have a long way to go before this rivalry can be rekindled. It would help if Ben was a bitter ex-Piston who didn't like someone on the current squad.

    He doesn't like the coach.

    Give Chic some time. Deng, Heinrich, Gordan, Thomas are only going to get better. Plus they get the Knicks pick.

    This year - enjoy this while we can.

    I think the new school fans do not understand just how intense those classic rivalries were.

    Rodman saying that Bird only won the MVP because he was white, and Thomas agreeing with him. Kevin McHale saying Rodman should be strung up from the rafters.

    Laimbeer being attacked by the Celtics coach (KC Jones).

    Mahorn vs. Oakley. Dumars vs. Jordan. Rodman vs. Pippen.

    The razorblade elbows of Bill Cartwright.

    Phil Jackson vs. Chuck Daly.

    Dennis Johnson vs. Isiah Thomas.

    Jordan calling the Pistons filthy and dirty, and the Pistons living up to that hype.

    The current day Bulls look like they would have trouble beating Flip's CBA championship teams.

    Ben used to lead our team with fire and brimstone, when necessary. I remember he'd call out guys on their play (Including Himself). He really seems QUIET this series. Must be the headband. He gets his power from the headband...........................
