The Detroit Pistons officially landed the number one overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft on Tuesday night, a feat they had only a 14 percent chance of doing. While it was all luck, a Detroit pro sports team is finally number one at something again, and the hope is it’ll go a long ways to turning around the franchise.
Question of the day: Who will make the playoffs in their respective league first, the Pistons or the Lions?
My answer: Now I have to go with the Pistons.
If you’d asked me before Tuesday night, with the way the lottery typically plays out I would’ve probably leaned towards the Detroit Lions. With now seven teams from each conference making the playoffs, it’s a lot easier for the defense to sneak a Jared Goff led team in a a sixth or seventh seed.
For the Pistons, however, a number one overall pick is a game changer, and likely enough to push the team’s young core towards a playoff push, even if it is as a seventh or eight seed.
Regardless, there’s reason for hope in Detroit sports once more. Who do you think will reach the playoffs first?
