The Scouting Report

With center Andre Drummond on the cusp of superstardom, emerging guard Reggie Jackson inked to a long-term deal, Brandon Jennings close to returning from injury, and first-round pick Stanley Johnson ready to contribute, there’s plenty to be excited about in Detroit. Later this month, the Pistons will dribble into the 2015–16 season as one of the NBA’s youngest and most intriguing teams. Instead of  stealing a mascot’s costume to sneak onto the court, fans can join in on the Pistons’ ascent by taking a post-game shot at the Eastern Conference on October 28. On this sure-to-be momentous date, the team will open their home schedule against the Jazz—another up-and-coming squad that should make plenty of noise in the West this year.

Detroit Pistons

Although their name fondly alludes to Michigan's proudest industry, the Detroit Pistons rolled off the assembly line in a different state entirely—Indiana. Automobile-part mogul Fred Zollner founded the team as the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, joining the young National Basketball League in 1941. Under Fred's direction, the Pistons immediately found success on the court, winning back-to-back NBL titles in 1944 and 1945 and amassing 166 wins in just nine seasons.

As the sport grew, so too did the team. In need of a bigger audience, the Pistons left Fort Wayne for the Motor City, where they continue to challenge Eastern Conference opponents in the NBA. Throughout the years, the team has claimed three NBA championships—most recently in 2004—produced hall of fame players, and earned the record for the highest-scoring game in NBA history—a 186–184 triple-overtime win over the Denver Nuggets in which both teams accidentally scored touchdowns for a whole quarter.
