Ready to show off your Detroit Pistons jerseys? Then take a whiff of some team history first. The Detroit Pistons make their home in Auburn Hills, Michigan, where they play at the Palace of Auburn Hills. They might make their home north today, but they were originally based in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where they were first known as the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, a team that played under the National Basketball League. The Pistons were first formed in 1941. They then became part of the NBA in 1948, before moved up to Detroit in 1957.
Auburn Hills is an economic center which, in addition to housing the Pistons, is also home to Chrysler and the Chrysler museum. It's a mixture of rural Michigan with a state that is fast growing into an economic capital. So if you're around the area, make sure to take a tour of Lake Michigan, and still walk through the busy downtown.
