Now that Dave Bing is The Mayor of Detroit, it’s only fitting that I work on a Cartoon Bing.  I got quite a few suggestion via Twitter as well as Facebook on weather to go Old School Bing or Present Day Bing.

It looks like what I was leaning toward won out, you should see a Present Day Cartoon Bing shortly.

All that got me to thinking, I have to start Tooning “The Bad Boys”.  I did Dumars and Isiah so I think the logical one that comes next it Laimbeer but I’m open to suggestions.  I will get to them all sooner or later but does Laimbeer come first?

    Bing used to sell my dad drugs when my dad worked at the fitness club Bing went to in his pistons days. I hope hes not a druggie no more.

    wtf? Dave Bing is the mayor now, wtf?! I live in Florida now so I am out of touch… but wow lol

    I’m glad Bing won – hopefully his great business sense will transfer over to the mayoral spot.

    I think a cartoon Laimbeer should come first. It does seem fitting!

    THE WORM! You have to get a pre-rainbow haired Dennis Rodman Cartoon up here Natalie. That would be great. Also, does anyone know where I can get an oldschool Dennis Rodman or Vinnie Johnson Pistons Jersey? I can’t keep investing in current player jerseys only to watch them go to other teams. I have 3 Ben Wallace Jerseys, 2 Chauncey Billups & 2 Sheeds. Not to mention my Rip & Tay Jersey’s. If they all leave I need something to wear during the season. Oh well I guess I can just stick to my Thomas Mitchell & Ness.

    How about Chuck Daily first!!!!

  6. Natalie Sitto

    Good Call gMac!

    And DD3, can’t do anything without the Worm.

    You might try checking eBay, DD3. I just searched “Dennis Rodman Pistons Jersey” and found one that wasn’t signed and seems to be a decent price (the ones that are supposedly “signed” are really high in the price).

    I’m changing my vote — I agree with gMac. Chuck Daly first!

    Toon Priority should be as follows

    1. Joe D (comp)
    2. Zeak (comp)
    3. Lamb
    5. Daly
    4. Worm
    5. Microwave
    6. Mahorn
    7. AD
    7. Spider
    8. Pumpkin Head (Aguirre)
    9. Buddah
    999. Scott Hastings

  9. Richie

    I agree with putting Chuck Daily next on the list, and after that, I’d go with the ones who are still most closely involved in Detroit basketball, and work out from there. That would mean that Laimbeer and Mahorn would come next. I’m bais in saying make the worm next, as he’s my favorite player of all time.

  10. Ben from Seattle

    Dennis Rodman #1!!!!!

  11. Nic

    Pepe Sanches

  12. Brett Crane

    Also, What about Mike Abdenour? The guy has been with us forever and you cant tell me that his sweet ‘stash wouldnt be a great on a toon.

  13. Tim McMillan

    I just realized the Curry’s cartoon head is being pulled off stage by that clown at the Apollo – that is hillarious!

  14. ryan ricafort

    Bing as Mayor. wow.. his first city ordinance for detroit is to fire curry.

  15. Natalie Sitto

    Brett: Great list but come on, you gotta love Scott Hastings!

    And I already did a Abdenour POWER cartoon, in fact Mike has a t-shirt with his likeness on it. It was somewhat of a big joke in the locker room.

    Here is the list I have,
    Arnie Kandor
    And all the ones you already know.

    I’m working on The Mayor and Daddy Rich right now.

    PS…..I have a Chris Bosh already made that I did for HoopsAddict.com. Good Karma

  16. Mark

    Lamb is the man!

  17. Bill Johnson


  18. El Patron Himself (Accept no Imitations!)

    First off, hats off to Dave Bing… if he rocks the office like he rocked the boards, the D is in good hands!

    Second, glad to hear that Nat is working on some Bad Boys toons! It was sorely missed!

    I just think that after Daly, Laimbeer AND Mahorn must come together… I mean, if Zeke was the brains, and Joe D was the heart of the Bad Boys, Bill and Rick here the “gun show” … Come on, we don’t call Mahorn “the baddest of the bad boys” for a reason, right?

    AND, please, when you do Buddha, lots of attention for the FU MANCHU!!! 🙂
