As two great American men once said, “Hello, Miss Lady.” That, and, “Shut, shut, for one second. Will you shut your mouth? Shut, shut, shut your mouth.”
Good. Now stop whatever it is you’re doing and clear the evening of April 17 at 8 p.m. EST. That’s when the long-awaited (from me, at least) Bad Boys ’30 For 30′ airs. The piece documents arguably the most notorious and hated team in basketball history, Chuck Daly and Isiah Thomas’ Detroit Pistons, and their irreplaceable mark on the game’s lineage.
The timing is perfect, too. Not only does it premiere a day after the regular season ends and an ideal prelude to the playoffs tipping off Easter Sunday (which is also 4/20 of all days), but Bad Boys is the perfect 25th anniversary gift for the franchise’s first Finals championship.
Now, excuse me, I’m off to watch the trailer 37,000 more times. I’m so excited! I’m so excited! No Jesse.
