Meanwhile, Pistons Owner Tom Gores "has heard the grumbling" that the building "has a Red Wings feel," from the bright red seats to the statues of hockey greats. But he also "expressed confidence that it won't take long for the Pistons to establish LCA as the franchise's true home." Gores: "The first day is when it becomes home" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 10/19).
The DETROIT NEWS writes it was “good to have the Pistons back in the city where so many Detroiters felt they belonged.” The DETROIT FREE PRESS writes it was a “night of pomp and circumstance celebrating the Pistons' return.” The DETROIT NEWS goes with the header, “Opening Win Makes Pistons Feel At Home At LCA.”
