The Bad Boys saw their run of dominance end when they were ran off the floor at home and they left the floor without shaking hands with their conquerors. Thomas an NBA TV analyst was asked by TNT’s Ernie Johnson during a taping of NBA TV’s “Open Court” if there were any regrets. “Absolutely” he said. “Looking back we all should have taken the high road.” Thomas said the action was retaliation for the Bulls’ lack of respect for what the Pistons two-time champions had accomplished.
