Since the Isiah Thomas vs. Michael Jordan days, the Pistons and Bulls have struggled to be good at the same time.

Jordan continued his dominance after Thomas and the Bad Boys disbanded. Then the Pistons seized control during the Rip Hamilton, Chauncey Billups, Tayshaun Prince, Ben Wallace era; and don't forget that Jerry Stackhouse still holds the United Center record with 57 points on April 3, 2001.

Now it's the Bulls' turn to rule with reigning MVP Derrick Rose and Co. deep and talented.
