Another thing to consider about the Pistons when they were doing great, they might not have had "superstars" but that is because ESPN did not like the Pistons. Just about every player on that team was good enough to be a superstar but most Detroit teams are overlooked by ESPN. When Detroit was in their prime, Billups was probably playing better than most guys in the league and Big Ben and all the other guys.

They also were pretty classy guys, not like the trash you see on the Heat today.

I was so upset when the Pistons lost game seven to the Spurs in the finals.

I always thought that the Pistons team with Billups, Hamilton, Tayshaun and Wallace should have won one more title.

I think you're talking about teams that are very top-heavy (Lakers, Heat) verus teams with more depth (Spurs).
