Remembering the 2004 NBA champions, the Detroit Pistons

Happy 11-year anniversary of the 2004 NBA champs, the Detroit 'Goin' to Work' Pistons.

As I watched the Chicago Blackhawks lift the NHL Stanley Cup (that's hockey for those of you who don't know) through my peeled fingers, NBC mentioned Detroit, alluding to their three Stanley Cups in six years. Then I remembered the Detroit Pistons' 2004 championship on this same day, June 15, 11 years ago. I still remember soaking up that night with friends in my friend's parents' basement in Commerce, Michigan, where we watched all the playoff games that season. 11 years later, I'm in the living room of my house in Georgia. A lot has changed.

You can watch the documentary of the 2004 championship below. In the comments, share where you were 11 years ago and where you are now. I just turned the lights low; I'll see you in an hour...

Now your championship thoughts.
