    Had to think about this.

    Joe Dumars - the original Mr. Big Shot.
    Isiah Thomas - Never quit, never got tired
    Ben Wallace - Main factor and Identity in the Piston turnaround. So fun to watch in his prime.
    Rip Hamilton - Warrior, never backs down.
    Bill Laimbeer. Played way past his potential. Used everything he could even stretching the rules to win.


    Others. G.Hill for making Pistons ball in the 90's bearable to watch, the rest of the 89-90 and 2004 championship teams.

    Isiah hit more big shots in his career than Joe D, trust that. Anyway here's my top 5.

    Isiah Thomas
    Chauncey Billups
    Joe Dumars
    Ben Wallace
    Dennis Rodman

    I cant believe chauncey is getting some love he was finals MVP and the captain of our squad. I mean Stuckey over Chauncey what the hell is wrong with some of you guys. I have lost some respect for "some" in the forum.

    No particular order:

    Isiah (put the franchise on the map)
    Microwave (winning shot against Portland lives in infamy)
    Bob Lanier (Pistons' DNA before it became a popular phrase)
    Bill Laimbeer (Relished in how much he was hated)
    Ben Wallace (A great underdog story; it hurt when he left)
