Detroit Pistons

Posted in DETROIT, SPORTS by urbanmi on August 19, 2010

Detroit Bad Boys has been doing great coverage on the forthcoming sale of the Detroit Pistons.

I, and most everyone else, is hoping for Mike Illitch, owner of the Redwings and Tigers, successful acquistion of the franchise.  Illitch has proven his desire to build competitive teams and has been aggressive in investing in Detroit.  It is a best case scenario for the continued success of the team and for the development of Detroit.

Speculation suggests the Pistons would eventually move from the Palace of Auburn Hills to downtown into a new shared arena with the Redwings.  The addition of a new arena will ensure year round sporting events downtown increasing the quality of life amenities and providing more reasons to visit and move to Detroit’s urban center.
