Detroit Pistons

2013 Result: 29-53, missed playoffs

It’s been a rough few years for the Pistons ever since a first-round sweep at the hands of the LeBron-era Cavaliers in 2009.  They haven’t been back to the playoffs since and personnel issues have plagued the team.  The only standout talent on the Pistons was guard Brandon Knight, but he won’t have to do it on his own anymore.  Tired of the losing, the front office is going for it in 2013.  They hired former Piston Maurice Cheeks to coach the team.  Two members of the 2004 championship team return in Rasheed Wallace (as an assistant coach) and Chauncey Billups (as a player).  And forward Josh Smith, one of the top free agents on the market, signed with the Pistons.  Billups will mentor Knight and turn him into a strong point guard.  Greg Monroe is developing into one of the better centers in the league.  They also have young Andre Drummond at center and Peyton Siva and Rodney Stuckey at point guard, giving them excellent depth at both positions.  In fact, they have the best point guard depth in the league, so strong that they need to trade at least one of them away or they’re wasting assets on the bench.  An upgrade at power forward over Charlie Villanueva would be nice even though they just resigned him.  Pistons fans haven’t appreciated the bad play over the last few years; they were 28th in attendance last year despite leading the league a few teams in the last decade.  But there’s a ton to like on this roster and every reason to believe they’ll improve.

 

The Detroit Pistons play in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference.  They have three championships, two (1989 and 1990) from the ‘Bad Boys’ era and one (2004) from perhaps the best team of the 2000s with a starting lineup of Billups, Richard Hamilton, Tayshaun Prince, Rasheed Wallace, and Ben Wallace.  They were so good that all but Prince were named All-Stars in the 2005 All-Star Game.  They have won nine division titles and made 32 playoff appearances since moving to Detroit in 1957.  The Pistons play at The Palace of Auburn Hills, one of the NBA’s biggest arenas that used to host sellout crowds every night.  Knight, Billups, Smith, and the rest of the Pistons hope to spark fan interest back into the team.  Show your support with tickets from Gold Coast Tickets!
