    Anthony Bellino - Michigan Sports Network

    On an amazing episode of the Motor City Hoops Podcast, I am joined by Anthony Bellino from The Michigan Sports Network, Xs and Os Bros, and BCSN Sports. Anthony and I continue to talk about player expectations for some members of the roster I did not get to on ep. 50. What kind of seasons do we see for guys like Hami Diallo, Josh Jackson, and a couple of the “vets”? We then dive into a really fun segment where we discussed some of “the Biggest” questions on the roster. What is THE BIGGEST short term need on the roster? Who is THE BIGGEST threat to be an unexpected starter? What player has THE BIGGEST chance NOT to meet fans expectations this season? ALL of these and more!
    We finish off the episode by bringing back the Around the NBA segment BUT keep a Pistons flavor with it. We check in on members of the roster from last season that have found a new home and see what kind of impact they may have with their new team. What will Wayne Ellington bring to the Lakers? Will Sekou make an impact in Brooklyn? Etc.

    Jake Fischer - Bleacher Report

    On a shorter episode for the Motor City Hoops, I am joined by author and contributor at Bleacher Report, Jake Fischer. Jake and I discussed the Pistons offseason including the two most talked about draft picks, Cade Cunningham and Luka Garza. We also get into what he thought about the Pistons free agency. Did he like the move to acquire Kelly Olynyk? And what resigned free agent returning to Detroit does he like the most? We also dive into his expectations for the 2021-2022 season and what is the next step for Troy Weaver and the organization.

    Pistons Player Expectations & "What Ifs"

    Pistons Player Expectations & "What Ifs"

    I had the absolute pleasure of being joined by Detroit Pistons and MCH fans Wes Davenport and @PistonsFanalyst for ep. 50 of MCH! Wes, PF and myself continue to look ahead to the upcoming 2021-2022 season. What are our expectations for Cade? Do we see another jump from Jerami Grant? “What if” Killian and Cade don’t mesh? “What if the Pistons are bad and Weaver’s team building doesn't look to be working? AND of course we talk about the Sekou Doumbouya trade to Brooklyn.
    We finish off the episode by bringing back the Around the NBA segment as we each get a chance to give our most interesting move of the offseason from around the association and who we think the current favorite in each conference is.

    Keith Black Trudeau - THE Detroit Pistons Historian

    Keith Black Trudeau - THE Detroit Pistons Historian

    Keith Black Trudeau joins the MCH Podcast for the second time to give us his amazing insights and stories on The “Teal Era” of Pistons history. During his first appearance on the podcast Keith gave us an amazing look into Pistons history from the start, to The Bad Boys, to the Goin’ To Work Pistons and more!! Unfortunately, even turning it into a 2-part (ep. 35) episode we did not get to everything we were hoping for! So, I had the pleasure of bringing Keith back on to fill in some of the holes and that starts this episode with the end of The Bad Boys and into The “Teal Era”. I know this is a longer episode BUT I PROMISE it is worth your time and the listen!!!
    In this episode we also give our reactions to the news of the trade of Sekou Doumbouya (along with Jahlil Okafor) to the Brooklyn Nets. Was this the right time to move on from Sekou? Did Keith feel like the return for Sekou was a good one? AND do either of us think Sekou will be a factor for the Nets?

    Mat Issa - Quest for the Best (Mailbag Episode)

    Mat Issa - Quest for the Best (Mailbag Episode)

    Mat Issa joins MCH for the first ever “Mailbag Episode” where we answer questions submitted by you, the listeners, about our Detroit Pistons via twitter and the DBB website. Cades impact on Killian? Both of their impacts on Sekou? Is the long term #2 option on the roster? If not, where does he come from? All of these are answered, discussed, and MORE!
    Normally, me and my guests finish episodes going Around the NBA talking about the hottest topics around the association. But in this episode I used that time to talk to Mat about his incredible “Quest for the Best” project where he gives us the Top 10 NBA players of all time. After 70 interviews, countless hours of film, and countless more putting it all together he will be releasing his 6 part podcast series in a couple weeks AND I got the first opportunity to talk to him about it!
    All of this and MORE on this episode of Motor City Hoops!

    Bryce Hendricks - DetroitBadBoys of SBNation

    Bryce Hendricks and myself continue to look ahead to the 2021-2022 Detroit Pistons season. We use what we saw from the Summer League to look ahead at what we might see from players during the regular season AND what it tells us about possible rotations. We also spend a little time talking about some of the more interesting lineups Coach Casey could roll out this year.
    As I always do on MCH, we finish the episode going Around the NBA. Bryce, who watched almost every game of Summer League, tells us what player impressed him the most AND gives his best and worst off-seasons from around the association.

Go-to Pistons’ podcast

As a lifelong Detroit Piston’ fan/sicko, I have been looking for a Pistons’ podcast that really suits me for awhile now. This is the one! Interesting content, great guests, and thorough breakdowns elevate Motor City Hoops to easily the best podcast that I have heard covering my favorite team. Continue the great work, Bryce, and thank you!
