The Detroit Pistons were founded as Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons in 1941 and didn't move to Detroit until 1957. The name referred to the founder's company that manufactured pistons for General Motors. The team plays its home games in front of up to 21,000 spectators at the Litte Caesars Arena in Detroit. The Pistons have been in the league since the NBA was founded in 1949 and have won a total of 3 championship titles. The first two were won by the Bad Boys around Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars and Dennis Rodman in 1989 and 1990. In 1994, the Detroit Pistons drafted Grant Hill, who was rookie of the year with Jason Kidd and was considered heir to Michael Jordan . However, the team with Hill could never really win, so that he wanted to switch in 2000 and for a.o. Ben Wallace was traded. The third title was won in 2004 with players like Chauncey Billups, Rasheed Wallace and the defensive monster Ben Wallace against the super team of the Los Angeles Lakers with Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone and Gary Payton. After winning the title, the Detroit Pistons made negative headlines when a game against the Indiana Pacers sparked a mass brawl in which spectators were also involved. The brawl, known as Malice in the Palace, resulted in the suspension of 9 players with a total of 146 games penalty - the main part of this had Ron Artest with 86 games, who was considered the trigger and main culprit of the brawl. In 2005, the Pistons were again in the final, but lost to Tim Duncan and his San Antonio Spurs. With Allen Iverson in 2008 and Tracy McGrady in 2010, the Detroit Pistons were able to sign two aging stars, but they were no longer able to relive the glamor of old times. Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin were seen as the Pistons' new hope, but that wasn't enough for a real turnaround of the franchise either.

During this time, the team also changed the team colors to turquoise, red and yellow to keep up with the fashion of the eye-catching logos and colors. In 2002 this logo was adapted again with the old team colors and discarded again in 2005.
