I did it! Well, we did it. The Detroit Pistons have won the 2017 NBA Fantasy Draft title. First off, I wanna give credit to Blake Graber and the Houston Rockets. They gave us one hell of a fight over the course of 6 games. With that being said, the cream always rises to the top. When we were down 2 games to 1, there was never a doubt about who was going to win the series. The resiliency in this locker is second to none. Coming into this season everybody and their mothers had us as the second worst team in the NBA. Well, everybody except Las Vegas and joshbobdotcom columnist Dalton Potocki. He wrote in his season preview:
“What can I say? He did it again. Every player that Dalton drafted fits his offensive scheme. If they can get hot, look out because not even the rain they bring from deep could cool them off. This is such a Dalton team it hurts, he got his boys on a roster and the reports from camp are that the team chemistry is already through the roof. The bench is maybe the best in the league, being led by the Sauce King Brandon Jennings and JR “The Pipe” Smith. Then when you thought the roster was perfect, the GM went and traded Ian Mahinmi for Donatas Montiejunas. The only issue could be lack of athleticism on defense (white) and finishing at the rim. This is the odds on favorite to win the whole thing. Vegas has them at -3500”
While Brandon Jennings and Donatas Montiejunas didn’t finish the season with us, their contributions in the beginning of the season allowed us to trade them for people who could contribute more.
I have to give a special shout out to our budding superstar, Kristaps “God” Porzingis. He had one of the greatest NBA Finals in basketball history. He averaged 33 pts, 12 reb, and 5 blks. With out him we wouldn’t have been able to bring a 4th championship to the Motor City.
The Parade route will go down John R to Woodward, into Campus Martius, down to Cadillac Square and then we party it down at Lafayette Coney Island. Free coneys for anyone wearing a Mike Muscala 6th Man of the Year jersey.
