      Pistons fans should look on the bright side. At least you're not a Knicks fan

            Clicked based off the truth of the title. I remember my living room table randomly shattering when they won the ring as a kid. Cant remember anything else

                Imagine if Melo or Wade got drafted by that team. Melo at least is a champion. And Wade probably wins more than 3 rings. Crazy how things play out.

                              Before I press play:

                              In 2003 the Pistons left one of the best draft classes ever, with Darko. Means they left with nothing. Carmelo was the perfect fit. Would have been mutually beneficial. In turn, Pistons only get one chip and age their way out of being a contender and melo goes on to play for a bad organization and then an even worse organization. Possible Melo could have been a NCAA champ and then an NBA champ. His entire narrative is different. Pistons then, miss badly on pick after pick. Then they sign Charlie V and Ben G to terrible deals. Bad drafting and bad free agent signings after 2007 lead to the demise

                                Thanks for producing this. I found it so ironic how Joe Dumars lost his sense of evaluating talent; so rapidly after the 03' draft.

                                    If they drafted Carmelo Anthony I think they would have been good for another ring

                                        I am a fan of the pistons for over 25 years (greetings to Bill Lambeer by the way) and i still have hope....!
                                        Even if it's a difficult time right now...! Detroit Pistons will be back on top one day! Best wishes from Germany!!! 👍👍👍

                                            They.couldve drafted Carmelo. Maybe their run lasts a little longer

                                              That Pistons teams looked like they were always having fun, that's what made them fun to watch

                                                              Man these were the day’s back in the 2000’s in Metro Detroit, Chucky Atkins really deserve’s more love then he get’s, him and Lindsay Hunter played point and Chucky was a big playmaker before we signed Chauncey Billups. Billups was kinda a bust for most of his career until he got to Minnesota and played really well during the playoffs and finally had a chance at starting in Detroit (it was never a sure thing) and Larry Brown finally got through to Billups and let Larry Brown coach him and take constructive criticism from him. Big Ben was a unknown and then Joe D traded Jerry Stackhouse for Richard Hamilton to GREAT college player but was used wrong on the Wizards squad. Billups and Hamilton grew into one of the best backcourts in NBA history. Tashawn was long and a great defender and could hit the open shot, then the trade that shocked Detroit happened and brought Rasheed in to give the team some personality and do whatever the team needed done. The championship was INCREDIBLE abut then the diva day’s began, none of them admitted any mistakes, always yapped at the refs and lost control of the intensity and everything went to hell. We love Dumars but he just couldn’t draft and made really risky signings and trades never could admit we needed to tank for a while and it’s been the same way ever since.

As a metro Detroiter I remember that crazy 5-1 series vs the egos of the shaq and kobe lakers (and they just missed a sweep by a phenomenal all-star 3 by none other than #8 b4 the black mamba era leading to an LA OT win). I'd never seen kobe, shaq and Phil more shaken up. Great times

They rigged in 2006 and in 2007 for Detroit to lose in the conference finals. Its all fake shit, Detroit is the last true TEAM to win a ring.
