In case you missed it, ESPN Senior Writer (and pretty much everyone’s favorite NBA media personality), Zach Lowe, had a Detroit-themed episode of the Lowe Post podcast that aired this week. He starts off the show by bringing on Detroit native and future NBA Hall of Famer, Chris Webber.
They go onto discuss a variety of Pistons topics, including the phantom foul from the 1988 NBA Finals, the Bad Boys winning back to back titles, and the Pistons relocating to Detroit from Auburn Hills. Lowe then asks Webber about his time on the Pistons, as Webber explains how that was his favorite locker room of all time and breaks down LeBron James’ performance from the 2007 playoffs.
From there, Jerami Grant joins the show to break down his decision to gamble on himself and join the rebuilding Pistons over the contending Denver Nuggets. He discusses how his decision wasn’t just about his role on the team, but also about his want to join a franchise and play for a team with a black coach, a black GM and for a majority-black city in Detroit, as was detailed in James Edwards’ outstanding piece from the Athletic.
