The documentary is about the journey of the Detroit Pistons to two World Championships. It's an excellent film, giving different views from the players who participated on the court. It reminds me of gladiators discussing the battles they survive. And to me, all of them became better players.
Considered the most controversy team, the Pistons attacked their opponents physically and mentally. I love the team because they dethrone the legendary glamour knights (the Lakers and Boston Celtics). So much drama with player against player, player against coach, and players and coaches against referees. The drama unfolded like Dynasty and Dallas rolled into one.
I grew up in Detroit. The city suffered from a high crime rate, high unemployment, an annual Devil Night fires. Detroiters fought the crime and fires through neighborhood watch and organized groups like SOSAD. The journey to the championships was a needed distraction.
The 30 for 30 Bad Boys is a delight to watch. It brings good memories back when you focus on the games and the drama.
