For an old Boston boy, it's very weird to be rooting for any team with "Detroit" on its jerseys, because we remember the infamous thugs of the Lambeer-era 80s Pistons--who weren't anywhere near as talented as the Celts and the Lakers, but very willing to play way more dirty--and whiney with it.

But the 21st-century Pistons are just so goddamned good, and so tough, and so selfless. 5 starters who haven't missed a game in, what, 2 1/2 years? They get stronger when they're down, and they're a fuckin' juggernaut when they're ahead. And they do it without a "marquee" player.

No School like the Old School.
