Detroit Pistons get the #1 pick! #DetroitUp

Last night the Detroit Pistons secured the #1 draft pick in the NBA Lottery. As Duncan Smith writes, their 2020-21 “Fade for Cade” has paid off spectacularly with their first #1 overall pick since Bob Lanier:

The 2020-21 Detroit Pistons lost a lot of games and their 20-52 record produced the fifth-worst winning percentage (.278) in franchise history. But they did it by design, and grit, accountability and hard work were more important than anything else. For a young team building the foundations of what is hopefully meant to be a great franchise in the future, the building blocks were in place.

Now, fast-forwarding a bit, the Pistons and their hard, painful work over the past year have been rewarded. There won’t be anything easy about this, but teams don’t win anything of import without generational and transformational talents. Time will tell if Cade Cunningham is this, but we know right now he might be.

Indeed he might & if you’re a Pistons fan like me (or Big Ben) you gotta be over the moon right now!!
