After a 4th place finish in the NBA Eastern Conference Central Division the Detroit Pistons are coming off a disappointing NBA year in the 2016-17 NBA season. The Pistons went 37-45 and missed the NBA Playoffs. The Pistons are looking to rebound in the 2017-18 NBA season and get back to the NBA Playoffs.
The NBA Detroit Pistons were founded 1941, but were known as the Fort Wayne Pistons. The team has won NBA three championships, nine divisional titles, and seven conference championships. Detroit Pistons are one of the most successful franchises in league history. Eight players have their jerseys hanging at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Some of the All Stars the Pistons have had throughout the years are Joe Dumars, Vinnie Johnson, Dennis Rodman, Isiah Thomas, Bill Laimbeer, Richard Jefferson, Tayshaun Prince, and Chauncey Billups. Isiah Thomas is probably one of the most recognized. Thomas played his entire Hall of Fame career with the Pistons from 1981-94, won two NBA Championships. The Pistons play their home games at the Palace of Auburn Hills, which was built in 1988.
