The #Detroit Pistons with a re-tooled roster from a year ago, have their long starving fans something to get excited about for this season.
Just one night after a rousing opening night victory at Atlanta, the #Pistons are 2-0 for the first time since the 2008-09 season. Even though it’s only two games into the season, it is clear that this year’s team will be more entertaining and competitive that the previous versions.
The last time the Detroit Pistons were two games over .500 was March 13, 2009 — when an overtime victory at Toronto gave them a 33-31 record.That was the also the day that owner Bill Davidson died.It speaks to how far this three-time NBA champion has fallen in the last six years. It also speaks to how important a 2-0 start could be psychologically for a franchise desperate to reconnect with a basketball audience that basically has treated #Auburn Hills as though it were NBA Siberia.
