Now that is a sweet icon.

It's amazing, this city. Los Angeles, on the street, barely even registers that their team was shamed.

We went out to eat, and the crowd doesn't respond to a guy with a Pistons hat . . . as if the Lakers did not exist.

That's Hollywood . . .

Who'd have ever thought Chauncey Billups would be the NBA Finals MVP.

Congrats to the Pistons though. And once again it is proved, Defense Wins Championships.

It's not so much a cliche as it is a truth.

Well said, my good Packer friend.

If you look at the progression, the Pistons caught up by the end of the 1st . . .

They expanded the lead by the 2nd . . .

By the 3rd, it was wider . . .

Every time the Lakers made a run, the Pistons responded.

At Mel's Diner, I had a victory coffee.

I have a bottle of Smirnoff in the fridge. I reserve that usually for moments like these, but I was so tired after eating 10 oz. of American ground beef that I just wanted to sleep, hahaha.

The Pistons championship series will probably be noted in the same light as Namath's Jets Super Bowl victory . . .

Few really believed they could win. I can't lie . . . I was happy they made it to the series, but I had no idea.

It really helped to have Campbell and Hunter on our team.

Both of those players had won a ring with Los Angeles, and they were also very used to the Staples center, which was like having a couple spies on the team.

It wasn't a surprise to see both players shine in the Finals.

It's a great underdog story, right up there with the US Olympic Hockey team of 1980.

Of note, Dennis Rodman was normal right up until he left Detroit.

Actually, I believe that he was starting to slip in Detroit . . . soon before his departure, they found him sleeping in his vehicle with a loaded firearm.

He was on the outs with his lady at the time. I think they found him in Auburn Hills, at the Palace . . .

Leaving the Pistons probably was the final step into the Weird Kingdom for Dennis.
