The folks from Detroit Bad Boys were kind enough to send me over some questions leading up to our game on Tuesday. Here's one of them:
One knock on the defense-first Pistons beyond 2005 is that their core was aging, the Eastern Conference was getting better around them and the half-court game they focused on was becoming passe. With today's Boston Celtics, their core is aging, the conference is improving around them and their pace was the league's 8th slowest in 2009-10. Do you feel a connection between your Celtics today and the Pistons in the late 2000's? (bonus question: is Shaq today's Chris Webber?)
See how I answered this and other questions at the link above.
