    I like to think of them as the "Legos" simply because in one way or another they were all "let go".

    Plus when you think about a lego, by itself, it is relatively insignificant and you don't see the full potential of the piece. But put it together with a few other lego's and it makes something awesome.

    It's always possible to fit any Lego you want with another Lego, but you gotta pick just the right ones to make the perfect structure.

    To me, the Pistons are like Lego's. Nice job Joe D!!!

    Damn you Canadians:) ... it was COPS. Not America's Most Wanted.

    I think I like "The Team".

    How about "The Hand".

    It has five digits.
    The opposable thumb- Ben
    The pointer- CBwon
    The middle- Roscoe
    The ring- Hollywood Hamilton
    The pinky- Prince of the Palace

    And it turns into the fist when you make it mad.

    If you play the hand, you're gonna get dealt.
    If you talk to the hand, you're gonna get a smack down.

    I dont know about a nickname but I loved when Rod Serling said, "You are now entering the Twilight Zone"

    How about at that juncture of the game when Detroit smacks that D on somebody a voice similar to Serling`s over the Palace PA system says, "You are now entering Defensive Lock Down Mode"......:eyebrows:

    I don't think we need one as much as in 88-90 since the team is not trying to go against the grain.

    In 04 - there was a general slogan of Play the right way.

    Last year - Cardiac Kidds since we were always comming back.

    Now? Best starting 5, 5 all-stars ( Prince noted ). America's team due to their popularity.

    Going to set a new NBA record for the fewest TO's in a season. NBA's smartest team?

    There will be one when we win it all. Have to win one to get a lasting knick or slogan.

    Not sure if its the same one you're talking about, but they called Paul Pierce "the fifth Beatle" at the All-Star game because he entered with the 4 Pistons.
