The Detroit Pistons opened up their 80th season this year. However, there are few expectations that it will be one of their most memorable. After a disappointing first season in 1948-49, Detroit produced one of the more successful runs in the early years of the NBA. However, the Pistons never could quite get a grasp on the ultimate prize; an NBA title. 1963 started a lean stretch in Detroit basketball history. Across the next 20 seasons, the Pistons would make only five playoff appearances, winning a single playoff series. The current situation in Detroit is clearly a rebuilding mode. There are some aging stars past their prime trying to fit like pieces in the puzzle around Blake Griffin. Detroit has played reasonably well at times defensively but has been consistently ranked in the bottom half of the league offensively.

Early in the 1980s, Piston's basketball fortunes began to change. The Bad Boys Era would begin in Detroit. Beginning in 1983, Detroit would make nine consecutive playoff appearances, win three-consecutive Central Division titles, plus make three straight NBA Finals. Detroit would win their first franchise championship in 1988-89 and follow that up with a repeat as the NBA Champion the following season. After a tough decade in the 1990s, when the few times Detroit made the playoffs they made quick first-round exits, the Pistons would go on another run.

The Pistons would make six consecutive appearances in the Eastern Conference Finals and make it to the NBA Finals twice. Detroit would win their third NBA Title in 2003-04, losing in a thrilling seven-game series the following year to San Antonio.A 2008-09 first sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers started an avalanche of disappointment. Over the last decade, Detroit has made two playoff appearances, getting swept both times.

Detroit hasn't won a playoff game since a 19-point victory over the Boston Celtics in the 2008 Eastern Conference Finals. During this low-point in Pistons' basketball history, Detroit has managed a single winning season. The 2020-21 Detroit Pistons probably look more different to their fans than any team in the NBA. However, new faces are not producing a change in the results. Detroit is expected to tread along, challenging for a shot at the number one pick in next year's NBA Draft.
