The Pistons came into the season with very low expectations and were not expected to have a good season, but after 13 games, the Piston have proved the majority of NBA fans wrong.
Detroit is 2nd in the east with a 10-3 record and has been lead by multiple players to get where they are, one of them being Tobias Harris who has averaged 20.1 ppg so far this season. Another big surprise to me was Drummond. Drummond has had over 12 rebounds in all 13 NBA games this season and leads the league in rebounds. Many Pistons fans, including me, were hoping Drummond would get traded, but it looks like the Pistons made the right choice to keep him, as he has played with more confidence and has had a better free throw percentage.
This offseason, the Pistons picked up shooting guard, Avery Bradley, who has also made a big difference in the Pistons gameplay. Getting Avery was a great move and has definitely improved our defense.
But are the Pistons a legit team? In my opinion, I think yes. I’m a Pistons fan, so you probably thinking this is all biased, but with all that aside, I think the Pistons can make it to the playoffs for sure
