It is just so embarassing that senior, elderly people like this guys still nurture these grudge upon each other, for as much as how peculiar and unique these moments turned 90's NBA into what it was...it's still just a shame.

Scottie Pippen had to take 8 seconds trying to decipher what Isiah Thomas just vomited.

No excuses for jordan because you wouldn't give lebron none. Isaiah use to kill the bulls all the time. Just like he said they didn't beat them until piston players got old

Why is Max disagreeing with Zeke and Pip. Like he was on the Bulls. Someone get Dennis Rodman's opinion. Dude played for both peak teams.

Pistons made BJ Armstrong ;Cartrwright;Paxon;Perdue and made Pipen greater and push MJ lift weigh to become The greatest as a braisilian alien live in New from 1987 to 1992 I became Detroit fan because They took away basketball out of Boston and LA.They made small teams thought they made we can make also.I born to love soccer because Pelé is the MJ with feet theres no doubt.When I child was training soccer with me down here Argue them You Know Pelé and MJ?If you don’t know come back to your house and ask Google them I Will allow you to training again...

MJ and Scottie has been the most “all business” duo in NBA history.. You can debate the best duo.. Kobe and Shaq, Magic and Kareem and so on.. Everyone can pick his favourite.. But when you talk go out there and win no duo is even close to MJ and Scottie.. They knew how to win games, and how to win championships.

Stephen A is right because if it wasn't for the pistons and their bully ball, MJ wouldn't have put on that muscle make him more dominant in the paint. His shooting ability was already insane, especially in the air, but he had no muscle, and he was getting pushed around by the pistons before he could take flight. That was literally their game plan, double him in the lane and hit him before he could take flight. He wasn't gonna gain momentum from shooting foul shots over and over again.

Scottie is the best player in Chicago Bulls! I'm not telling he's the greatest of all. That's MJ, inarguably. But Scottie is the best player on the court. Pippen exhibited enormous progress as a player. It went from a good level and went to a much higher level of excellence. He had a very, very mature game. Very intelligent and dominant. While facilitating movement in the offense, he was also present in the delivery of the attack. A brilliant mind in defense, no need to tell anybody. The guy is unquestionably a hall of famer! There is not a single player in the NBA today who bears any shadow of resemblance to Pippen.

It seems like I’m the only one thinking how disrespectful Stephen reacted to Max’ take on Pippen. I don’t understand the hate Max is getting on his comments either when he’s clearly giving Pippen credit and watching everybody in the room applaud shows they all agree with what he said. Even Pippen said “I like that”. But then Stephen has the nerve to tell Pippen to forget about all that and in his response keeps on referring to Max in third person which is extremely disrespectful. Max clearly wanted to respond but unfortunately was cut off so I’m very curious to know what Max would have said as his final reaction.

It so messed up that Isaiah Thomas was born and raised in Chicago, a Chicago Native & Legend but Jordan and Scottie still get more live then him and to ger booed like that for his a opinion is messed up. But Detroit will always have your back Zeke. Bad Boyz 4 Life!

The Pistons have been historically known as the dynasty destroyers. 1980s Celtics, 1980s Lakers, and years later the 2004 Lakers with the all star team Kobe, Shaq, Malone, Peyton. The Pistons defense was intense in the 80s and intense in the mid 2000s.

They like to make it out that bulls never had a challenge. There was plenty of buzzer beaters and game 7 eastern conference games. Jordan was the best but it wasn’t as easy as they make it out to be

I hate IT, him and his fake smile. People like that have evil heart. He is from Chicago, but no one even likes him from there. He always have hate in his heart. First he said MJ was GOAT. Then said LBJ was GOAT, then Wilt, Kareem. Detroit was a dirty team. They intentionally hurt the best opposing players. Now days im the NBA, lambire and other dirty players would be banned forever.

Im from detroit...I watched every single piston game back to tripucka and all i can say is that we literally TAUGHT the chicago bulls how to play. They started using our heart that we had against us, They matched our energy after seeing how we didnt care about the rules and we created a monster...Jordan actually had to lift weights and get bigger to beat us.. ASK MAHORN.

can Max go through one show without bringing up: 1.) Bulls would have beat Pistons in game 7 if Scottie didn't have a migraine 2.) MJ couldnt be beat after he has one all star on his team. 3.) Bulls never played a game 7 in the Finals.
mikec48180 21 day ago
Let's also not forget that how long the Pistons had went every year and the way they played Defense which is still the best Defense till this day and only other team that could have a say in the matter is 2004 Pistons and I mean is a NBA Championship and the best Defense and won it all!! I'm a Bulls fan but I have to give love that Defense was nasty and to keep that up for that long is hard on a body every year!! Also the NBA realized that Jordan was the cash cow and not to have them in the NBA finals was not good business and the following year they started calling the ticky-tack fouls the Pistons couldn't D him up like they did the following year and the fouls they was calling they let go in years past

Those Bad Boys don't get enough credit. Not including the Bird, Jordan, and Magic in ONE playoff run, let's also look at their Finals record. 8-1. They nearly swept back to back Finals!!! Put some "respeck" on Zeke and my Pistons!!!

I can’t believe this guy says the Bulls lost game 7 of the ECF because Scottie had a migraine. Seriously? You win you win, you lose you lose. No excuses. Bulls won 6 titles. Pistons won 2. Bulls were better later. Bottom line is Isiah more than earned his spot on the Dream Team.

It feels like the Pistons are a forgotten championship team. They went 3 straight finals and won 2. But they're really not talked about on the same level as the Laker, Celtics and Bulls. So now you got exPistons taking credit for making Jordan and the Bulls the team who they are. I think Max is right. Scottie became an all-star in 1990. In 91 they swept the Pistons. He did enter the league in 87, so there is that 3 to 4 year stint that could be debated whether they turned Scottie an all-star. But anything prior to 1990, it was Jordan vs the Pistons. I also think Phil's philosophy in getting Jordan to trust his teammates more played a bigger part in getting pass the Pistons than Doug's give the ball to Jordan and everyone else get out of the way game plan
