    This last game at the Palace of Auburn Hills will be televised on TNT on Monday @ 5PM EDT. Probably

    There will probably a few highlights of the three NBA championship teams that won there and maybe even the three WNBA champions that played there. Probably the Malice at the Palace lo-lights and maybe even haq, Ernie,Charles, Kenny do a live broadcast from there?? Zeke will be there for sure....maybe even Joe shows his face again...

    The Pistons won there first game at the Palace vs the Charlotte Bobcats in 1988 on their way to their first championship, hopefully they put on a show for the home fans who paid top dollar to be there for the last game as well as the national TV audience...and win their final game there.

    Let the Palace of Auburn Hills Appreciation threads begin.........................

    There is still some chance that we will tie for the 8th playoff spot and only lose due to tiebreakers. It's crazy how easy it is to make the NBA playoffs. With a disaster of a season and with our star PG out or hobbled, we were still a couple blown games away from qualifying.

    In baseball, there have been many years when the Tigers barely missed the playoffs, where we could wonder what could have been if they had made it in. Seasons where one of our star pitchers were out and caused them to fall short, but would have been a force in the post season.

    In the NHL, the games are so low scoring and physical, that a little puck luck and some emotional momentum can get you far. It always seems like there is hope.

    However, in the NBA (and I guess the NFL), when you miss the playoffs, there is really none of that. You're just not good enough.

    Nothing, we will lose both tie breakers if we win and CHI and MIA lose their last 2.

    With Beno's injury yesterday, look for Hilliard or Stanley to be the backup PG.

    The Pistons were trying to release Beno and sign Lorenzo Brown from the D-League but the NBA deadline for waiving players had passed.

    Beno deserves a hero's farewell. Maybe raise his jersey considering the Palace is done.

    Maybe SVG can buy him out and use the stretch provision.

    LOL. He almost got waived yesterday for a D-Leaguer....if not for some stinkin' rules....

    He has been decent, though, and a professional to boot.

    The problem is every time they bring back a bunch of old school Pistons for celebration etc, the current Pistons lose. If I am not mistaken, the last time the current Pistons won a game in front of a group of Bad Boys or the Going to Work team was Ben Wallaces jersey celebration in January 2016 when the "upset" the record setting defending champion Warriors.

    They lost in Billups and Rips Jersey shows, and the game when they brought back a bunch of folks to celebrate Blaha etc.

    I tell you the person that needs to be there is Joe Dumars one of the few other the trainers and security who was there for all three Piston titles. The last time we saw him was sometime in spring of 2014.

    Of course with the game on TNT, we won't see the behind the scenes.

    Dre only interested in defending with his hands. Foul trouble guaranteed.
