AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) -- Just because Henry Ellenson and Michael Gbinije were born after the Pistons' back-to-back NBA Championships in 1989 and 1990 doesn't mean they don't know about the "Bad Boys."

"We might be too young to have seen (them), but thank God they have it on DVD so I can watch it," laughed Gbinije, who, along with Ellenson, wore "Bad Boys" hats during Friday's introductory press conference.

"It's just the mindset and the culture of it that's really appealing. If we play with that mindset, I think that will equal success."

Ellenson also knows the importance of those who came before him.

"The history is rich here, and I just hope to add to it, just continue what they have going."
