The Detroit Pistons have had many great players and at every position, boasting a combined 103 NBA All-Star appearances in franchise history and having 15 former Pistons currently in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Members of the Pistons' all-time starting five are an exclusive group, the best of the best.
The Pistons' all-time starting five includes one player from each of the standard five positions— point guard, shooting guard, small forward and center. Each player must have played at least one full season starting at that position for the Pistons.
Winning an NBA championship with the team is important as a qualification, but not essential to making the lineup. Statistics, All-Star appearances, All-NBA and All-Defensive team selections and Hall of Fame membership are factored into selecting the best starting five in Pistons' history.
