NBA 2K19: 2003-2004 Detroit Pistons Player Ratings and Roster

Back then, the Detroit Pistons were quite the dominating force. Under the Tutelage of Coach Larry Brown, the Pistons went on to a 54-28 record, as well as finishing 2nd in the NBA central division. Much of this was bolstered by the mid-season acquisition of Rasheed Wallace, who is not featured on this game roster. Not only that, running through the NBA playoffs secured them many conference titles, with them winning the Eastern Conference Finals 4-2 against the Pacers, and beating the Los Angeles Lakers 4-1 to secure the NBA championship.

Age: 30

Position: Small Forward, Shooting Forward

Height: 6’7”

Traits: (include any special traits etc)

Best stats: 87 speed, etc (minimum of 3 stats)

Not the most essential player on the team, he was still a good part of why the Pistons were able to rally together and eek out a finals win. Averaging only 9.5 points per game, he only had an average 3.2 rebounds per game, but had a nice .505 2P%. More there as the glue of the team, his decent stamina made him a nice starter against most rosters.

Darko Milicic, C/PF (69)

Age: 19

Position: Center, Power Forward

Height: 7’0”

Traits: Interior Defender

Best stats: Blocks, Rebounding, Steals

One of the weaker members on the team, Darko Milicic played on the Pistons roster during his first year in the NBA. This did not sit too well with his stats, as he was almost completely overshadowed by the other members of the roster. With only 1.4 points averaged per game, he also only had .2 steals and .4 blocks per game, and 1.3 total rebounds averaged per game. As the second overall pick that went ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, he is considered one of the biggest draft busts in the history of the league.
