Pistons use silver screens to get free
Was that really the Detroit Pistons playing the Boston Celtics? Or was it just a cast of impostors -- including a fictional mass murderer, two all-time great home-run hitters and Batman's sexy girlfriend?
You couldn't have told by checking the hotel register where the two-time defending National Basketball Association champions stayed in Boston.
Among the aliases the Pistons used to ward off overzealous fans or possible security problems were former New York Yankees sluggers Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, and Kim Basinger, the slinky actress who played Vicki Vale in the movie "Batman."
