The Detroit Pistons look to be substantially improved heading into the 2014-2015 season. Here's why.
A Brief History
The Detroit Pistons were founded in the early 1940s by Fred Zollner, a Fort Wayne-based industrialist who supplied the automotive industry with – wait for it - pistons AND helped construct the NBA as we know it today.
Struggling through the 60s and 70s as longtime foes the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers dominated the league, the Detroit Pistons hit their stride in the 80s when they produced one of the all-time best basketball brands: The Bad Boys.
Thriving on a hard-nosed, punch-you-in-the-mouth mentality that garnered massive fan support in Rock City, Joe Dumars, Isaiah Thomas, Bill Laimbeer, Vinnie “The Microwave” Johnson, Dennis Rodman, Rick Mahorn and the rest of the gang were the team opposing fans LOVED TO HATE. Under Hall of Fame head coach Chuck Daly, the Detroit Pistons won consecutive titles in 1989 and 1990.
In 2004 the Pistons won a third NBA title led by Chauncey Billups, Rip Hamilton and Rasheed Wallace by defeating the heavily favored Los Angeles Lakers, who featured at least four current or future Hall of Famers in Kobe, Shaq, Karl Malone and Gary Payton.
The New Look Detroit Pistons
Beverly Hills-dwelling, Michigan bred billionaire Tom Gores bought the Pistons in 2011 and brings a whole new approach to the business of basketball. A couple of years into an organizational overhaul, the Pistons enter 2014-15 with big-time aspirations. With a mid-season interim Head Coach replacement of John Loyer and a 2014-15 contract with Stan Van Grundy (former head coach of the Heat and the Magic ), the Pistons are shaping up to turn the corner. Building around young, budding stars Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond, as well as 2014 draft pick Spencer Dinwiddle, the Pistons look like a playoff team. Ball night in Rock City is back.
