Pistons Send Lakers Packing, Win Third NBA Title, 5 April 2006
Author: keithpettyworld from United States

In one for the ages, the Detroit Pistons are NBA champions. And they did it the right way. The Pistons completed the biggest upset in NBA Finals history, toppling the mighty but misguided Los Angeles Lakers with a 100-87 victory that was entirely emblematic of a team triumphing over individuals. In front of a raucous and unrelenting sellout crowd at The Palace of Auburn Hills, Detroit closed out the series in five games for its first title in 14 years, hearkening back to the days of the "Bad Boys." "It's about players," said Pistons coach Larry Brown, emotionally drained from winning his first title. "This sport is about players playing the right way and showing kids that you can be a team and be successful and it's great for our league." Leading the way was Brown, the nomadic coach who fronted for a group of cast-offs and convinced them that they could overcome tremendous odds by playing "the right way." In his seventh NBA stop, Brown finally broke through, becoming the first coach to win championships on the pro and college levels. "We did it, man," said Finals MVP Chauncey Billups, who has found a home with his seventh team. "We came into this series, nobody gave us a chance, but we felt we had a great chance. ... We knew as a team we just felt we were a better team."
