About Detroit Pistons

Originally founded in 1941 as the Fort Wayne Pistons, the team moved to Detroit in 1958 and one of the National Basketball Association's most notorious franchises was officially born.

The team struggled for several years after its move to Detroit— though a string of talented players like Jimmy Walker and Bob Lanier were featured on the roster during the 60's and 70's, the team failed to turn talent into success.

Then in 1981 the team drafted a small point guard from Indiana University named Isiah Thomas. After Thomas' promising rookie season, the Pistons picked up a bruising center named Bill Laimbeer from the Cavaliers as well as guard Vinnie Johnson from the SuperSonics. Thus was born an era of Pistons history wherein the team was known as the Bad Boys— the team's brutal style of play involved highly physical and unapologetic play that featured what some considered dirty tactics. However, their toughness led to considerable success including two championship wins in 1989 and 1990.

The Pistons later obtained another championship title in 2004 under the strength of Ben and Rasheed Wallace and guard Chauncey Billups.

The Pistons carry with them a reputation of highly physical play and a win-at-all-costs attitude that wins over fans and causes considerable on-court drama. This is one team you don't want to miss— get your tickets to see the Pistons today!
