    I believe I'm going to simply piggyback this article and ask the same question. I'd be interested in seeing who most of you would pick...

    Which five players would comprise the greatest starting lineup in Detroit Pistons history? | MLive.com

    I'm going to kick if off with my choices:

    PG: Isiah Thomas
    SG: Joe Dumars
    SF: Dennis Rodman
    PF: Ben Wallace
    C: Laimbeer

    There are tons of talented players in Pistons history, but I have to say only championship winners make my list for the obvious reasons and Big Ben is the only one I think was tough enough to roll with the originators.

    PG - Isiah Thomas
    G - Dave Bing
    SG - Joe Dumars
    PF - Bill Laimbeer
    C - Bob Lanier

    I'm going to go small here. Dave Bing and Bob Lanier were great and classy players. They are both in the top 4 in Pistons career scoring. They are both in the Basketball Hall of Fame. I won't penalize them for not having enough talent around them to win a ring in Detroit.

    I've been following the Pistons closely since the 2009-10 season. That would make for a pretty sorry team. I'll have to dig deep in the 2010-11 team that managed to get 30 wins.

    My list is identical to this one.... Isiah and Joe will have to score a bit more with both Rodman and Wallace out there... but at the other end, I'd hate to have to score against us.... I'm assuming 80's rules not the can't touch me league of today.

    Lindsey Hunter for sure, plus Chucky Atkins would get consideration.

    Lee's disdain for Hunter was amazing.

    Hunter would get blamed for losses even when he was in street clothes.

    I want to make the ALL-Lee team, but am at work.

    Pepe Sanchez has to be there. Maybe Will Blalock and that other guy I can't remember his name.....
