    The trading of Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson spelled the beginning of the end.

      Motor City Mayhem, is what I called this team, was one of my favorite basketball teams of all time((and I'm not even from MI))who could most Definitely go toe to toe with the original Bad Boys... My problem with this vid and y i have to stop watching is SO MUCH Context is missing in this, context I feel is very important to the over all history of this era's team..

                            This was so hard to watch. We were good for so long I said one season I think 06 or 07 that I wonder what it feels like to be a bad franchise. Little did I know we would turn into that franchise and are still barely treading water as a 8 seed caliber team. So many bad coaching hirings, free agency signings and draft picks. With today's big market fair weather climate in the league it makes me wonder will my beloved Pistons ever get back to this era again. Drummond will likely walk for a contender and Blake griffin is one injury away from retirement.

                                                  It actually pisses me off when people criticize Ron Artest for going after that fan. Like, nobody says shit about how this guy provoked him. They act like it’s *only* Ron Artest who is at fault for responding.

After Lebron they were never able to make it to the finals again... the sad part is those Cleveland teams lebron was on was garbage. The pistons were successful during the weakest era of already a consistently weaker conference. Again nothing to take away from Chauncey Billups and Rasheed Wallace who I feel are HOFers but maybe the pistons just ran into good timing.

They put in the new rules after this because they thought people were bored with defense. Suddenly scoring went way up and it became much harder to win with a team that just played harder and defended you. The NBA wants the stars to win. If they truly want parity, they would allow defense again; as its one of the only ways teams with less talent can actually win a 7 game series.
