Adrian Dantley will be at the Palace tonight, but not for anything Detroit related. Dantley, an assistant coach for The Nuggets, will try to help his team add to their three game winning streak and continue their offensive attack on all opposing reams in their way. Dantley, who took over the head coaching job in George Karl’s absence (I’m sure some people wish it was a permanent leave) the last time the two team met, has some memories in Detroit he would love to remember and some that I am sure have taken a lot to forget, if he even has.
I have fond memories of A.D.’s time in Detroit and was one of those people who felt bad that he missed his ring, even though I loved Aguirre. I was young when it all went down, and inside stories didn’t always make it to fans, so this video did a nice job of refreshing some memories and putting things into perspective.
He’s in there for a couple of seconds, so make sure you don’t miss the ageless Blaha? And yes, he was “Counting That Baby and a Foul” back then too.
