Pistons Classics: Dumars Is going to Disney World

by | Oct 30, 2007 | 8 comments

The start of the Pistons 50th season is just two days away and I was thinking back on some of my favorite moments of the past. This one very close to the top of the list for me.

It’s Joe Dumars after winning the Finals MVP and the first of The Pistons NBA Championships after they swept the Lakers in 1989. He’s going to Disney World!

I always got a kick out of the “I’m going to Disney World” commercials and especially loved this once considering my love for Mr. Dumars. I do not however remember Isiah Thomas doing a Disney World commercial in 1990 when he won the Finals MVP. If anyone remembers, or has the video send it my way so we can take a look.

    Now I can’t help but wonder if he actually went.

    I don’t remeber Isiah did it, but he did have something. “What did the Ohio Players say? Heaven must be like this?” I love the Dynamic Duo of Joe D and Zeke! ^,^

    I was watchin Around the Horn and my respect for J. A Andande and Woody Paige has risen considerably. They have the Spurs and the Pistons in the Finals next year while Mariotti has written the Pistons off. Man that’s great I thought all the writers and “experts” have counted the Pistons out
