4. The Detroit Pistons will be a good team this season

These aren’t the same Detroit Pistons that most of the Central Division has ran through in recent years. Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy has come in and begun to place the proper personnel in his system.

Marcus Morris torched the Bulls frontcourt all night long and appears to be a solid piece to the puzzle for Detroit this season. Reggie Jackson looked like a point guard who wants to prove he’s worth a max deal on Wednesday night, while Reggie Bullock exploded off the bench against the Bulls reserves in the fourth quarter.

The argument could be made that the Central Division might be one if — if not — the most competitive division in the NBA, even though technically, divisions don’t really matter anymore with the new NBA playoff seeding.
