Let’s rewind. It’s June 2004 and the Detroit Pistons are wrapping up their first championship run in 14 years. This is AWESOME. Wait too far.
Let’s try this again. It’s 2013, the Pistons just signed Josh Smith. This is AWESOME. Wait, still too far even though this still haunts us.
Let’s just see how we got here. Here is every key date to see how we got into this situation.
- June 2012: It starts with Andre Drummond. Drafted in 2012 to become the centerpiece of this team. Signed a 5-year extension in 2016 to make him the highest paid Pistons player ever.
