For me, the three teams that could come out of the East are the Nets, Sixers, or Bucks. Nets are obviously pretty big favorite now. Out of the West both LA teams are the two most likely teams, although Utah, Phoenix, Denver and Portland all have looked really good in stretches.

I don’t care about any former Pistons winning or not. Chose the Bucks because I prefer that team.

I voted Harris. Hes having a career year. Hes improved pretty consistently over his career. This guy has been moved around so much seems under appreciated. Seems like he gets alot of hate for not having big playoffs or being overpaid now so I'd like to see him pay off that contract with a ship for them.

Definitely Harris or (I voted) Middleton. Neither is very likely to beat the Nets, though.

Blake can suck it. The other Lakers already have a ring, and Drummond certainly doesn’t deserve one. Not a Clips fan.

I don't want to see Dre or Reggie Jackson win. Ideally I'd like Nuggets or Jazz to win.

Certainly seems like a clever title to basically say F Blake lol

I voted philly/Harris. I’d be happy to see philly or Milwaukee win. Don’t want the ring chaser teams to win, but it’s very hard to see anyone else do it.
I’d love to see Portland, Denver or Utah win out of all the realistic contenders.

I want to see Ish Smith win a ring. It's not going to happen this season.

Any ex Piston but Drummond and Griffin is fine with me otherwise.

I'd prefer to see Denver win it.

Jokic, Murray & MPJ are their guys. They've taken a risk in AG, Malone is a decent coach and I can't think of a idiot player on their roster right now.

Them or Utah but I doubt they get there.

LA v NY essentially. Far more interesting to see what happens afterwards with Dre, BG & LMA given I doubt they return for a encore season at limited money

I don't give a **** about any of them to be honest, if I had to chose one, it would be Middleton, but I don't really like Milwaukee, I don't dislike them either, it's whatever.

I agree with ducler, I'd like to see Utah winning, they never tanked, they built that team with a good job from their FO, developing their players/talent properly, that's the right way to do it imo. I wouldn't mind Denver winning, since they also never tanked or got the super friends to get together to win a ring that they failed to win by themselves (Lakers/Brooklyn)

Glad to see the Tobias Harris love. Great career arc, good person to boot. I thought it would be more interesting to watch former Pistons than it actually is. I have never watched a single game of Non-Detroit basketball games because I wanted to see a former Piston player.

I suppose if I am honest, I have enjoyed how little Kennard and Reggie helped the Clippers. And I am curious to see Dre play with Lebron. Can you imagine the Lebron scowls?

I have zero attachment to any of these players or any since the "Going to Work" era so none. In fact, I'm actively rooting against Griffin and the Nets.

Also, I'm all in on Utah. It would be nice to see a small market filled with players who've been disrespected win the whole thing.

No love for Galloway and the suns?

I voted for the sixers. Would prefer the jazz or nuggets. Basically just don’t want a super team to win it for once.

I'd like to echo the sentiments of a few people that I have no attachment to any Piston from the last 10 or so seasons. We've had little success and it hasnt been fun to watch. Stafford winning a ring with Rams would be awesome. Any of those guys? Couldnt care less.

Still a Bruce Brown fan. Always liked his grit, throwback playing style, and approach to the game.

If Bruce wins a ring, that also means that Steve Nash will get one. Obviously not a former Piston, but he was always one of the more likable dudes in his playing days, and was pretty fun to watch. Would be kinda cool to see him get some jewelry.

Don't care. Once they're no longer on the team I don't follow them and don't have any emotions tied to them or the new team.

I agree about Bruce Brown, the problem is, for him to win it would mean Harden would be rewarded for what he did, same for Blake (it's clear he wasn't trying while playing for us, even tho he is done, he is not as bad as he was playing in Detroit) and that's something I can't accept.

I want anyone but Brooklyn to win, sadly I think they will win easily this year.

Cheering against the Nets will be real. If they win a ring, watch next year and see how this whole buyout thing has been eliminated entirely.

Return to Detroit Pistons
