Detroit Pistons Winning Ways

The Detroit Pistons have played just eight games at home so far…and they are 7-1 in those games, plus 12-2 on the road. Needless to say, at 19-3, the Pistons have the best record in the NBA. It’s very early in the season, but Detroit is on pace to catch the Chicago Bulls, who are the only team in league history to win more than 70 games. Michael Jordan, who this writer feels is clearly the best basketball player of all-time, led the Bulls to 72 wins 10 years ago.

It doesn’t matter where you look on the planet, you won’t find a player anywhere near Jordan’s ability to make game-winning shots and lead his team to championships.

Basketball experts keep saying the Pistons lack a superstar. This writer could not disagree more. It might be that there are two Most Valuable Player Award candidates on this team, with guards Rip Hamilton and Chauncey Billups deserving attention for the award.
