The greatest Detroit Piston Isiah Thomas thinks Bill Laimbeer should be in the basketball hall of fame too. Check out his comments in today's Detroit Free Press. He is right, Laimbeer was intergral in the Piston titles in '89 and '90. He needs to be inducted! This is Isiah's quote from the Free Press!
Q:You guys are about to get your third Hall of Fame player of that team. Should people look at what you accomplished with even more respect?
A:And a fourth should come in Bill Laimbeer. Again, the last couple of years or so I've tried to be as outspoken about this as I can, but it seems like history is trying to rewrite itself and say that it was the Lakers, Celtics and Bulls. Sorry, I don't remember it that way. I don't remember the Bulls winning a championship in the '80s. It's marketed that way, it's talked about that way and it just seems like when you go back and look at the history books the facts don't bear that out. I speak from a factual point. People might not like what I'm throwing out, but the facts are that I believe we were the first team to start putting 30,000, 40,000, 50,000, 60,000 people in the stands.
