Detroit Pistons fans are a lowly bunch these days. Bad personnel moves, free-agent signings and trades have driven this team into the ground, and it's a sad thing to see happen to this proud franchise.

The situation over ownership have held the Pistons in limbo ever since Bill Davidson passed away. Joe Dumars' hands have been tied up top, and the players have been lacking any semblance of motivation or drive to get this team off the ground.

As a result, we witnessed a 2011 season filled with mediocrity. The team boycott before the game in Philadelphia was disgusting, and just goes to show the disarray in the front office.

As the season came to a merciful end, the Pistons finally found a new owner in Tom Gores, and now fans have something to look forward to. With new ownership comes a new era in Pistons basketball. The team is not totally devoid of talent and could be looking at relevance in the East if Gores and Dumars take the right steps. 

This slideshow will attempt to predict those steps.
