Reggie Jackson wore a Bad Boys cap while posing for photos with Van Gundy. What’s the significance of the Bad Boys? “It was an era,” Jackson said. “It’s a mentality. It never can be duplicated but it’s something that I guess is kind of a foundation here and hopefully we can be mentioned one day amongst the ’89 season and those guys, Dennis Rodman and Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars, Bill Laimbeer and all them. Hopefully we can bring that same style here, physical and all business. We’re here to play. We’re here to compete. We don’t necessarily have to be your friends on the court. We don’t care how you feel about us. We’re here to get a win by any means. I grew up a Bulls fans but they definitely elevated Michael Jordan‘s game by being who they were and hopefully we can take on their persona.” Mlive.com
