    the lakers were definitely kind of a "fake" superteam, cause there wasn't much strength there besides shaq and kobe. but really i think it's understated at just how good that detroit team was. they didn't really have any offensive stars, but i'm not sure there's been anyone in this league as impactful on defense since prime ben wallace's. really though once they added sheed, who was an all-star two-way player, they became pretty scary.

    It's probably a bit of my homering coming through then. However, and I think for the most part this can be universally agreed, Detroit sports (excluding hockey) is generally dismissed as any real threat. It's been like that for a long time which is mostly responsible for the Detroit vs. Everybody mentality. That Eminem guy and that one song may have something to do with it too but I doubt it.

    Dont forget amazing Pistons defense in 80s and beginning of 90s with Dumars and Rodman, Jordan Bulls lose to them. I miss that Pistons team for real.

    I would say racing sports, such as F1. You probably dont need parity across all teams involved, but at least 3-4 with decent options make it way more interesting than if its just 2, no matter how super hero vs super villain story there is. NBA should feel the same, but I think because its just human players even if the difference is huge, the general public cant really point it out. However, in these racing sports it usually is just the machine that makes the biggest difference and that drives people nuts because its easier to see.

    The Pistons 30 for 30 was an amazing watch. I miss late 80s and all of the 90s basketball all together. I can remember watching NBA on NBC on my 13" TV in my bedroom when I was a kid and jamming on my door backboard when they did on TV.
