Now that its pretty much all but official, the Pistons are going to be put up for sale. I would like to discuss to points here.

1. What if Illitch bought the team?

2. What if Ford bought the team?

Interesting! I would rather see Illitch buy the Pistons.
Reading a article in the Detroit News over the weekend about Illitch. He didn't renew his contract with Joe Louis after this year. Their saying Joe Louis Arena is in need of $10 million in work. The building is in need of serious updating.
Now, as I remember. The Palace entertainment has offered to allow the Red Wings to play there. They would be willing to accomodate the Wings if Illitch would accept to sign a 5 yr deal with the Palace. Mike Illitch says he has interest in the offer, but would only be willing to sign for 3 years.

The Palace officals said they plan on building a new Stadium/Arena in 2020 and they would be willing to also create a place for the Wings to play.

They're all too busy arguing about politics and religion.

If If the Joe needs updating, I say do it. Take the deal. As far as a new arena goes, if it's downtown I'd be ok with it. Also, Illich should but the Pistons.
