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.

Holy shit, I had forgotten how Dennis would go flying into the crowd - not just the front row, but many rows deep.

Thanks for the memories, Nik & Glenn. I'm sorry to see you go, but I wish you well.
It seems like the obvious NBA talents aren't going to stay more than two years, but I find that preferable to one-and-dones. It's nice to see a freshman with talent really show growth the next year.
Thanks to Beilein & staff, who are really doing great work. Just need to keep open the recruiting floodgates, so the talent is replenished. Our appearances and deep runs in the Big Dance will help. I would like to see it become a really long streak.

And defensive stopper? Yes, please!

I hope the people who got stabbed will recover, but this post made me think of the WTF moment when playing Civ and Gandhi says, "Our words are backed with NUCLEAR WEAPONS!"

Well, she comes from a broken House.
But really, it's being a survivor. She's seen* what happens to nice guys like her father and brother.
(*Well, maybe not eyewitness, but you get my drift.)

I'm happy about this. Proud of the way he's worked himself into the lineup and the way he's played. It's nice having a Wolverine on the Wings.

It's not necessary to fire Dumars - his contract is up at the end of the season. He can go out gracefully with thanks and some lovely parting gifts.

I'm sure Saban means it.
What he didn't say is that they're players until he cuts them.

BTW, all tournaments wins are not quite equal. There used to be fewer teams and rounds. When the tournament was 25 teams or less, U-M had first round byes (so they started in what is now the Sweet Sixteen).
YR (# teams), W-L (click 1964 & 74 for links to Wikipedia NCAA Tournament pages)
1964 (25), 2-1, lost in Final Four to Duke
1965 (23), 3-1, lost in Finals to UCLA
1966 (22), 1-1, lost in "Elite Eight" to KY
1974 (25), 1-1, lost in "Elite Eight" to Marquette
1975 (32), 0-1
1976 (32), 4-1, lost in Finals to IU
1977 (32), 2-1, lost in "Elite Eight" to UNCC
Not even sure Elite Eight was a thing back then, but included for comparison.
