First of all, apologies for another non-pistons post here. I love basketball. I love talking basketball. And I love the Pistons. But reading/posting about them right now just depresses me (watching the games is hard enough). I need to get a little closer to the light at the end of the tunnel - the off-season - before I can do it again. Alright, so, on to the team. IMPORTANT note. This isn't just a list of who you think the best 12 players of all time are. It's far more complex than that. It's which 12 players do you think would actually combine to make the best TEAM. Here are my choices...in the order that I made them. I'd LOVE to hear some of the board's picks/thoughts on this!! Head coach - Chuck Daly. This obviously isn't just about who won the most rings. It's about who could handle this roster full of hall of famers. Who could deal with the personalities? Who could assign roles and stand by them? Who could keep his players happy while getting what he needed out of them? Honorary psychologist Chuck Daly gets the nod from me. I was too young to see his hey-day, but I've heard and read enough of the legend. Guys like Red Auerbach, Phil Jackson, Pat Riley, etc. might've won more...but with legendary HoF rosters, a lot of HC's could've won as much (IMO). I did consider Gregg Popovich - the best coach of my generation - quite strongly. And to a lesser extent, Larry Brown and Jerry Sloan. But in the end, Chuck was the man for me.
