Quicken Loans Inc. Chairman and Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert had some advice Thursday for fellow NBA owner Tom Gores: Move the Detroit Pistons downtown.
Gilbert, talking during a morning business breakfast at the Detroit Athletic Club, said fans will flock to a downtown setting even when teams are doing poorly, taking in local restaurants, bars or a casino.
“It’s an experience,” Gilbert said. “Let’s face it, (arenas) don’t belong in a farm field in the suburbs.”
