I was sad to hear about the passing of Pistons owner Bill Davidson. He also owned the Detroit Shock, and Tampa Bay Lightening. A lot of people have said a lot of different things about him.
-He knew how to win the with class
-He was quiet by passionate at the sametime
-He let people do their jobs and do them to the best of their ability.
-He took the time out to get to know his players
As a lifelong Pistons fan I am sadden by Mr D’s passing. The Pistons are one of the greatest franchises in sports and I hope whoever takes over will carry on his legacy. Bill Davidson was not just respected in the NBA, he was one of the most respected team owners in all of sports.
Mr. D you will be missed by all Pistons fans, and I will never forget what you said when then Pistons won the NBA Championship. You said, “My Pistons were 8:1 underdogs to beat the Lakers in the finals, and that’s bullshit. Enough with the bullshit because we’re a great team and this is a great city.” I will never forget that and Pistons fans will never forget you. God Rest Mr. D.
