Didn't watch the USFL? Too bad. The USFL briefly brought playoff/championship pro football to the area.
The Michigan Panthers had AC and won the first USFL championship in 1983, 37-21 over the Oakland Invaders, 26 yrs after the Lions' last championship, and 13 years since the Lions had last been to the playoffs. Maybe that inspired the Lions, because they made the playoffs in 1983, of course losing in the first round. And they wouldn't be back till 1991, when they finally won a playoff game (which they haven't done since). And now it's over a half-century, and the Lions still haven't been back to a championship game.
Unfortunately, in the Panthers' second and last season, AC broke his arm in game 6, which ended his season. The Panthers lost their first round playoff game to the LA Express in triple OT, 93 minutes, 33 seconds - the longest game. Then the Panthers merged with the Oakland Invaders.

Pistons-Celtics and Pistons-Lakers were the more important rivalries for the story. The Pistons had to get past the Celtics to get to the championship, then get past the Lakers to win a championship.

Watching the aftershow: yeah, losing Mahorn was really eviscerating. To go from celebrating your championship, parade and all, and then you're gone. That was crushing.
