    Doesn't look like anyone was born before 1980.

    There were a number of great Pistons from our past: George Yardley, Dave Debusschere, Lanier, Bing,
    Grant Hill, and a few more I don't remember from before 1980.

    I'll go with:

    PG - Zeke
    SG - Bing
    SF - Debusschere
    PF - someone other than Rodman, someone from the pre-1980's
    C - Lanier

    Debusschere only played for the Pistons for a little over 5 seasons...not enough to be considered among the best.

    This page lists the top 10 Pistons in 43 different categories. Debusschere only appears twice (7th in total rebounds and 5th in rebounds per game). He made 8 All-Star games, but only 3 with Detroit.

    He was definitely a great player, but if you're ranking all-time Piston greats, he is in the top 50 discussion, not the top 5.
