Detroit Pistons are an American Basketball team competing in the Eastern Conference Central Division of the NBA. The Pistons were founded in 1941 and play their home games at Little Caesars Arena. Detroit Pistons have won the NBA Championship three times with the last championship coming in 2004.
In the late eighties, head coach Chuck Daly pieced together a physically aggressive, defense-oriented core of players, famously known as the Bad Boys including Isiah Thomas, Dennis Rodman, Bill Laimbeer etc. The Bad Boys made five straight Eastern Conference Finals from 1987-91, three consecutive NBA Finals from 1988-90, and won back-to-back championships in 1989 and 90. After the Bad Boys era, Pistons went through a transitional period in the early nineties and traded most of their Bad Boys team. The team was reinvigorated in the 2000s with the arrival of Ben Wallace, Chauncey Billups etc and made the NBA finals in 2004 and 05, winning the championship in 2004 and losing the next year.
