Not sure if there are any old-school fans here but if there are..... The Detroit Pistons were the three-time Eastern Conference champions and two-time NBA world champions yet they won only 50 games in 1991, but they were still able to make it to the Eastern Conference finals and then they got very badly sweep by their rivals, the Chicago Bulls. The same team they punked our yearly up until that point. Then in 91', the bad boys get destroyed very badly. So what do you think the problem was that year? In my view, injuries and age is what held them back. 1991 was just a bad year for us. An end of an era you might say. Even though it was 15 years ago, it still depresses me thinking about it since they were such an amazing team back then and to go out the way they did was not a story book ending. I wish they would have at least ONE game against Chicago. It would have been especially nice if it went to seven games, triple overtime with MJ getting the winning shot. That would have been a great passing of the torch game. But in 91', the Pistons didn't pass the torch to Jordan and the boys. The Bulls grabbed the torch from the Pistons and torched them with it.
