For all the teams in the NBA that seem to persist despite a paltry record, there are a few teams that are exemplary in their skill with the ball. The Detroit Pistons are examples of the latter kind, having gained experience over the years, and using it to demonstrate their prowess to the league. The Pistonsâ€™ expertise attracted a lot of attention from fans, often making it hard to find Detroit Pistons parking at their stadium, the Palace of Auburn Hills.
This venue was one of first basketball stadiums built thatâ€™s consistent with the modern NBA style, acting as a prototype for others. For instance, from the get-go it boasted club seating and luxury seating, features that were not as common when it opened in August 1988 as they are now. With a capacity of 22,076, the Palace also happens to be the largest stadium by capacity in the entirety of the NBA. These innovative features have kept the venue competitive, even if other arenas of similar vintage have been either renovated or demolished.
Like their namesake, the Detroit Pistons are both efficient and powerful, machine-like when they need to be and never passive. They possess a long yet significant history, founded by their first owner, Fred Zollner, who dubbed them the â€œFort Wayne Zollner Pistonsâ€ in 1941. Because Zollner worked on the deal that merged the BAA and the NBL into the NBA in 1948, the team had a personal connection to the leagueâ€™s founding. The team moved to Detroit in 1957 and endured a long period of hardship. They finally found their niche through the draft in the 1980s with selections such as Isiah Thomas, John Salley and Dennis Rodman. These players helped to take the team to two NBA Championships in 1989 and 1990. After a decent, but perhaps unexciting that followed, things began to pick up again in the 2000s. During this time, the Pistons earned the 2004 Championship. Finding Detroit Pistons parking can be difficult, so it is best to book Detroit basketball parking spots in advance with ParkWhiz.
