Detroit Pistons: What Sort of Team Do We Have Here?

Play the Warriors and the Clippers tough, lose to the Kings. Beat the Finals runner-up Cavaliers, lose to the Lakers. Blow out the revamped Heat, lose to the Bucks and the Nets. These are things that the Detroit Pistons (8-9) have done during the same week this season. So what sort of team are these Pistons exactly? The answer, while a complicated one, appears to be a .500 franchise...

WATCH: Reggie Jackson curses out Thunder fan

Jackson returned to OKC to face his former team as a member of the Detroit Pistons, and it was apparent he was persona non grata at Chesapeake Energy Arena. He was booed and then he shot back at a Thunder fan. Jackson told the fan “suck my d— you b—- a– n—-.” Beware: the language...

Kevin Durant Gets a Double-Double In Detroit

Kevin Durant had his second big game in a row after a six-game hiatus, recording a double-double of 34 points, 13 boards and 5 assists for good measure. “I’m sure we had some defensive breakdowns, but the guy is a hell of a player,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said. “He can get shots over the top of anybody at any time. You’re talking about the top two or three players...

Durant, Westbrook take shots at Reggie Jackson

    After spending the first three full seasons of his NBA career with the Thunder, Reggie Jackson was traded to the Pistons in February.

Andre Drummond responds to Khris Middleton saying he doesn’t like contact

    Pistons center Andre Drummond is averaging 18.1 points per game and 17.6 rebounds per game this season. The 22-year-old brings an unmatched ferocity to the paint night in and night out, posting a Rodman-esque total rebounding percentage of 26.6 percent and going after each board like a rabid boar on a pogo stick. With numbers like those, it might be asinine to imply that...

Monroe: Drummond 'always had that hunger to rebound'

Milwaukee Bucks power forward Greg Monroe went toe-to-toe in practice everyday with his former Pistons teammate Andre Drummond. Now that Monroe has left Detroit, and Drummond has become the team's center piece, Monroe is hardly surprised that the center is leading the NBA in rebounding."He's always been an outstanding rebounder," Monroe said Monday morning before he faced his former...

The Revival Of Detroit’s Powerful Pistons

The team was once a dynasty. Led by the consistent core group of players like Ben Wallace, Rasheed Wallace, Richard “Rip” Hamilton, Chauncey Billups, and Tayshaun Prince, the Detroit Pistons of the early 2000s were a model of consistency in the ever-changing landscape of the NBA. For six consecutive seasons, from the 2002-03 season until the 2007-08 season, the Pistons owned...

Pistons off to a Hot Start

So far, it appears Stan Van Gundy has the Detroit Pistons primed for a playoff push. I am not a guy who likes to blow my own trumpet, but I was high on the Detroit Pistons coming into the year. Stan Van Gundy made a brave decision to offload Josh Smith in the middle of last year and he let the offensive guru Greg Monroe leave in free agency. Both were moves that freed up space...

Noah, Hoiberg at odds over who decided star’s bench role

Chicago Bulls first-year head coach Fred Hoiberg intimated earlier this week that Joakim Noah actually offered to come off the bench this season. The only problem with what Hoiberg said is Noah apparently doesn’t quite see it the same way. The Bulls opened the season with Nikola Mirotic in the starting lineup with Noah riding the pine at the opening tip. When asked about the...

Why Andre Drummond is in a position to play at an even higher level

At only 22 years old, Andre Drummond has already proved that he is one of the most productive and consistent centers in the NBA today. In his past two seasons, the UConn product has had no trouble making his presence felt on the court. In fact, in both the 2013-14 season and the 2014-15 season, Drummond finished with the second most rebounds in the league, averaging just over 13...

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope And Detroit's Manageable Request

Two days ago, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was one of the least relevant sub-23-year-old players (who actually plays) in the NBA. He embodied the word "meh" only two years after the Detroit Pistons made him a mid-lotto pick. Die hard fans didn't know what he looked like, and you, dear reader, definitely can't recall a single play from his career that inspired you to Google his name-which...
