Round two of the Eastern Conference finals headed to Philly, where the Bulls won convincingly 4-1, represented here on the collar and toe box — as is the Detroit Pistons, in which the boys from the Windy City demolished their D-Town rivals 4-0. Finally, the profile Swooshes represent the final stage — the Los Angeles Lakers — who succumbed to the rising Chicago dynasty 1-4 in a series that would launch the myth that is Michael Jordan.
