Former Pistons Bad Boys Rick Mahorn and Bill Laimbeer got a good laugh of out the crowd in Game 1 with their new videoboard announcement.

The pair reminded the crowd in the third quarter not to be disruptive or unsportsmanlike, per NBA rules. It’s the same rules that are read aloud at every NBA game. Except Laimbeer and Mahorn put a new spin on them.

Cut-ins of Laimbeer’s angry on-court eruptions from back in the day were intermixed with his statements of what not to do.

There’s no truth to the rumor there’s a video planned for Wednesday’s Game 2 in which Isiah Thomas preaches the virtues of fiscal responsibility.
