There are more reasons than just talent that the Pistons are a top notch franchise year after year. First, they are profitable, own their arena and practice facility. The front office staff is pretty much as good as any in the league. They don't rush their draft picks into the lineup. They have Arnie Kander, who keeps a lot of guys healthy and extends their careers (even if it is all mental). They have a culture that doesn't tolerate malcontents or thugs.
