In the days of my youth, the Pontiac Silverdome was home to both the Detroit Lions football team and Detroit Pistons basketball team. The Silverdome hosted many events but some of my favorite moments were watching number 45 Adrian Dantley, playing in a blue Pistons uniform. ‘87 was the final year before the Detroit Pistons moved to the Palace of Auburn hills, when they played in the NBA finals against Magic, Kareem and the Champion Los Angeles Lakers. The following year, they left the Lions in the Silverdome and move to the Palace of Auburn Hills. AD was traded to the Dallas Mavericks for Mark Maguire and any love I had for the Pistons faded away like Jordan from mid range.. Even though the Pistons went on to win back to back championships those first years in the Palace, I was the only Chicago Bulls fan in my family. Maybe in the whole city. Possibly in the whole state.
