You could hear it Wednesday night in the Palace, in the bars, in the homes. A collective awakening from the Piston nation, they’re back! The Bad Boys we know are back. A couple million voices together, “We Believe.”
A Battle Won, A War to Come
THE BLOCK did more then raise a few eyebrows in Detroit. It sent a message to the beach: We’re coming and we’re coming hungry.
Hours away from the biggest game in this Piston era and suddenly we know…
Chauncey is going to jack up threes and break ankles.
Rasheed will grind in the post, and step off the three point line.
Tayshaun will fly back for a superhero like block.
Rip will be slashing fearless to the rim.
Ben will be a rock.
Shut them down. Break them down. Bring it back to Detroit. Bad Boys resurrected.
Win or go home. I can only see one outcome. No one in the country is likely to bet against you to close out in Detroit. Raise that hardware and slap that belt back around your waist. Not to get ahead of ourselves, but 3-2 suddenly doesn’t look so daunting a task.
I BELIEVE. DO YOU?
A Battle Won, A War to Come. The War is tonight. Give em’ hell, make em bleed.
