The quiet Joe Dumars didn't exactly fit Detroit's "Bad Boy" image, but on the team he was a perfect fit, regardless. Dumars silently put up big numbers and was considered one of the most underrated players in the game until his 1990 selection to the Eastern Conference All-Star team, which is not so unbelievable playing on a team containing egos like Bill Laimbeer's and Rick Mahorn's. Upon retirement, the much beloved Dumars was named Pistons' Director of Player Personnel.
