Comparing the Detroit Pistons to Each of Their Central Division Rivals

The Central Division, once the Detroit Pistons' own personal playground, has become a war zone for the team from the mitten.

The Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers now reign supreme in the Central, with the Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers fighting it out with Detroit for the second tier. And while some divisions enjoy a relative amount of parity, there is a huge difference between the first and second tiers in the Central.

But Cleveland seems to be trending in the right direction with a couple of excellent drafts and offseason moves, and Milwaukee brought some excitement last year with the addition of Monta Ellis, although it is too soon to know if the Bucks are moving forward or still just treading water.

The Pistons are certainly the wild card in this division. Like Cleveland, the Pistons have had some very good drafts of late and, provided some of their veterans play like they are capable of playing, they could make things interesting in the Central.

Here is how the Pistons stack up against the rest of their Central Division rivals.
