Lebron James might be the the best player in the NBA right now, but who will follow in his footsteps and become the next face of the NBA? Horsepower ranks the 10 best rising stars under the age of 24 and when they will make their biggest impact.
23-34 is not usually the record of a team in playoff contention.
Through a coach firing, bricks galore and a horrible conference, the Detroit Pistons miraculously find themselves four games out of the playoffs with 25 games remaining. Their recent 1-5 stretch has not helped their chances, but with no one wanting to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, Detroit is in prime position to screw up yet another season.
The Pistons made big news Sunday afternoon when they fired first year head coach Maurice Cheeks. Are they giving up on the season and looking forward to the 2014-2015 season?
Horsepower discusses who the Pistons could target as their next head coach and all of the All-Star Game festivities.
Wednesday night, the Pistons traveled to Wisconsin to challenge the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks came into the game with the worst record in the NBA at 8-32.
The Pistons led by six points at halftime, but could never break away. Detroit’s second half struggles continued and the Pistons lost the game, 104-101.
While their history may be legendary, the past few years for the Detroit Pistons’ basketball organization have been the complete opposite.
The Pistons have not made the playoffs since 2009 and these past four years have been brutal on the organization. They have finished No. 12 (2010), No. 11 (2011), No. 10 (2012) and No. 11 (2013) in the Eastern Conference over the past four years and just have not been able to pull themselves out of their slump.

After a MLK Day drubbing by the Los Angeles Clippers, the Detroit Pistons found themselves with a record of 17-24. At this time last year, an “inferior” Pistons squad was 16-25. The addition of superstars does not guarantee success, I suppose. Detroit must do something to break out of their funk and take advantage of a weak Eastern Conference, and it starts with the starting lineup.
The Pistons are currently riding a two-game winning streak after they had previously lost six in a row. With an easy stretch in the schedule coming up, will they be able to continue their winning ways?

Tuesday night, the Detroit Pistons traveled to “The Big Apple” to face off against the New York Knicks. The Pistons entered the game with a four-game losing streak.
The game was relatively competitive, up until the third quarter when the Knicks outscored Detroit 32-17.
What was once considered a slow start is now turning into a disappointing season for the Detroit Pistons.
As owners of a 14-22 record and a six-game losing streak after their loss to the Raptors Wednesday, underachieving might be an understatement. There have been a rash of injuries and a few benchings along the way, but the season is still young. Luckily for Pistons fans, there are a few bright spots for coach Cheeks’ squad. Read More…
On Friday night, the Detroit Pistons (4-8) fell short at home to the Atlanta Hawks for the second time in three days. Despite a number of late runs by the Pistons, the Hawks held the lead for the majority of the game and pulled away in the end. The turning point in the game occurred under two minutes to go in the game.
The Oklahoma City Thunder came to the Palace of Auburn Hills on Friday for the first and only time this season.
The Pistons held on to a slim two-point lead after the first quarter, mostly due to 10 points by Josh Smith. But Kevin Durant and the Thunder charged back, taking an 11-point lead late in the second quarter. Less than two minutes into the third quarter, the Pistons tied the game back up at 56. Read More…
Pistons fans have waited 196 days for tonight’s game. It’s a new beginning for a new-look franchise. With promising off-season upgrades and solid draft picks, this year’s team will be entertaining to say the least. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s focus on tonight’s matchup.
Since Joe Dumars was hired to be the General Manager of the Detroit Pistons, the former all-star has made some “interesting” moves. Some contributed to the 2004 championship win, others contributed to the franchise’s demise. Now Joe’s seat is getting warmer and warmer, and this season could make or break his chances of having a job in June. Read More…
