The 8 Greatest Moments in Pistons Playoff History

With playoff basketball back in the Motor City, it’s time to bring up the old debate you’ve had with your friends a hundred times over. What is the best moment in Pistons history?

The 10 Best First Round Playoff Battles in Pistons History

It’s been a while since the Pistons have waded their way into the postseason. Six years, in fact. And really, outside of that 25 year span between 1984 and 2009, franchise history isn’t particularly rich with playoff success. Still, to commemorate Detroit’s long-awaited return to meaningful basketball, here’s a look at our Top 10 first … Read more

40-year-old Jerry Stackhouse schools high school players in a polo and low tops

I know, I know. This is what a former NBA All-Star should be doing to high school competition. Yet somehow, I still find it strangely entertaining.

Every teenage up-and-comer needs a reality check every now and again. And for the handful of prospects willing to go toe-to-toe with 40-year-old former Pistons guard Jerry Stackhouse this past May at the Adidas Nations camp in Houston, that’s exactly what they got.

Wearing a polo shirt and a casual pair of lowtops, Stackhouse operated with minimal effort, not even breaking a sweat during his array of jab steps, headfakes, and fallaways.

Perhaps some of my joy stems from knowing that most, if not all, high schoolers on this tape weren’t even born when Stackhouse initially joined the Pistons in 1998. To some, he may have just been known as the dude who averaged 4.8 points per game for the Nets in 2013.

A few of those fellers probably learned a thing or two that day. As it turns out, when you’ve carved out an 18-year NBA career that included a 57-point performance, a 29.8 scoring average in 2001, and a couple of clutch playoff performances for good measure, you’re probably going to be schooling the rest of the world until you’re 50 and beyond.

Play on, Stack.

The 10 Greatest Dunkers in Pistons History

We know. You’re wondering, “There’s 10 great dunkers in Detroit Pistons history?” In a word: kinda. We’re here to breakdown Detroit’s top above-the-rim finishers, counting all the way down to the most spectacular high flyer in Pistons history. Is Andre Drummond’s breakneck dunk pace (167 crams in 2015 alone) enough to catapult him into the top 5 … Read more
