Pistons Owner Seeks Increased Public Role
(Pistons owner Tom) Gores is a showman. He was raised in Flint, but he’s Hollywood now. He’s seriously mistaken, however, if he thinks glitz and glitter will get the job done in a city with a basketball heritage built on guts and grit.
Gores told reporters before the game that he wants a more public role this season. Let the masses see him. That’s fine. But seeing his unbridled enthusiasm isn’t a substitute for seeing more wins.
