Adrian Dantley didn’t watch Thursday night’s “Bad Boys” 30 for 30 documentary on ESPN.

In fact, he didn’t even want to be a part of it.

“But the NBA kept begging me to be on there, so I did the interview,” Dantley told Matt Dery on Detroit Sports 105.1 FM today. “But I did not watch the 30 for 30 and I will not watch it. My wife tried to get me to watch it, but I didn’t watch it.”

The documentary chronicled the entire Detroit Pistons “Bad Boys” era, including the rift between Dantley and point guard Isiah Thomas and the eventual trade during the 1988-89 season that sent Dantley to the Dallas Mavericks for Mark Aguirre.
