I had to buy this set strictly because it includes all six games of the 1989 Eastern Conference Finals between the Pistons and Chicago Bulls. This was the "Doug Collins-coached/pre-Triangle offense" Bulls, before their championship dynasty. You could see exactly how this Bulls/Pistons rivalry was starting to grow. Scottie Pippen and Horace Grant were still too young and inexperienced, so the Bulls offense heavily relied on Michael Jordan. Nevertheless, the games were intense. The upstart Bulls gave the Bad Boys their biggest challenge in the '89 playoffs. This set also includes the Pistons four-game sweep of the Lakers in the NBA Finals that spring. Detroit had one of the best backcourts at the time with Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars. Up front they had resident Bad Boys Bill Laimbeer, Rick Mahorn, plus the steady veteran Mark Aguirre. And finally, the deepest bench in the league with Vinnie Johnson, John Salley, Dennis Rodman and James Edwards. Whether you're a Bad Boy for life or MJ fan, you'll want this set just to relive the classic confrontations.

I didn't start watching the NBA until the 90-91 season so it was nice to be able to watch these games for the first time in their entirety(except one). Although I was never a fan of the Bulls, I enjoyed seeing this Bulls team right at the edge of breaking thru. I also enjoyed watching the Magic/Kareem Lakers even though they were nearing the end. A couple of the ECF games were broadcast by TBS.

This is an 11 disc set that contains the 6 Eastern Coference Finals games along with the 4 NBA Finals games from the 88-89 season. Additionally, disc 11 contains the 88-89 season recap. A few more things I enjoyed were harder fouls not being whistled as a flagrant. Players getting T's instead of thrown out after a scuffle. Also, sometimes opposing players would give a hand for a fallen opponent(don't see that nowadays). Great set. Great memories.

Can you see my smile from where you are? I have been searching for anything from the Pistons repeat years and all I ever seem to find are games where the Lakers or the Bulls are beating them. I was grateful enough but a bit annoyed. So you can imagine how excited I was to find this box set from the 88-89 season. Very reasonably priced and the quality is very good considering it must have been transfered form old video tapes. Disc 11 is an overview of the entire season and is worth the price just on it's own. Now, all I need is the '89-90 season. Come on you old Pistons fans start making some noise and get this season on to disc before I get to be too old to enjoy it.

I am a big NBA fan(and a big Lakers fan). But i love this game and i wanted to see how the Pistons won the Bulls that is the biggist price for my.
I dont like my team lose 0-4 in the Finals but that is part of the game and it is still great to see Magic(played just 1 and a half game), Jabbar(his last 4 games) and Worthy that did his best but with out Magic and Scott this series was over(i still think with Scott and Magic that the Lakers would have won).
The Piston team look great, they played hard and smart basketball(and i love to see them beat Jordan).

I love Dennis Rodman and the Badboys of 1989 and this disc set shows some of their best moments. You also get to see how awesome Michael Jordan and the Bulls were at that time along with the fierce competiveness that these teams brought to each game. Dennis Rodman was simply amazing back then; the rebounding, the quickness, the defensive prowess (of course I am bias because I am a Rodman fan) but nonetheless; he is arguably the greatest rebounder/defender of our time. Isiah Thoms was at another level of performance, even outplaying Michael Jordan to win the series. You get to see a young Scottie Pippen who was still developing his skills as well as other key players for the Bulls and Pistons that really highlighted the team concept which won championships. Awesome video set!!

I own the Celtics set, the Lakers set and the Detroit set. Not only does the Detroit set contain more games but it really showcases the talent of the NBA's hay day. Whether you're a Pistons fan or not, its worth owning to see the greats in one set. Thomas,Laimbeer, Dumars, Magic, Worthy, Jordan, and Pippen. Just a legendary set. Thanks Warner Bros.

A terrific document of the greatness of Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars, Mark Aguirre, Vinnie Johnson, Dennis Rodman, James Edwards, and the rest of their starters and bench. Their defeat of Chicago in the Eastern Conference Finals really showed their amazing depth and their incredible shot making ability.

One let-down--not product related--The Lakers, in the finals, were without Magic for the last 2 1/2 games and without Byron Scott the whole finals due to injury. Kareem, playing in his final season, was not much of a factor either (except for a big game 3), averaging about 8 points a game.

At halftime of game 4, CBS aired a tribute to Kareem that CBS's play-by-play guys said was really well done. Including that tribute broadcast in the disc 11 special features would have added some richness to this set.

I am big Celtics fan, but I felt compelled to buy this set to keep my library of great basketball going. I have all of the NBA Dynasty Series, and this set is just as good. Great action by Jordan, Magic and all of the Pistons.
