Pistons owner Tom Gores Q&A: On state of franchise, potential changes: ‘We have a problem’


No one expected this. Not the fans, coaching staff, front office or ownership. The Detroit Pistons, in Year 4 of a teardown-to-the-studs rebuild, are 2-26. They’ve lost 25 consecutive games, one short of tying the NBA single-season record and three short of tying the longest skid over two seasons. Detroit wasn’t supposed to be world beaters. People would have understood if this young squad didn’t wiggle its way into the postseason. Everyone, though, expected progress. So far, the Pistons have regressed.
