Joe Dumars built the team, Larry Brown coached it and Ben Wallace, Chauncey Billups, Rip Hamilton and Co. brought the Larry O’Brien Trophy back to Detroit. Big Ben delivered 18 points, 22 rebounds and three blocks Tuesday as the Pistons routed the Lakers 100-87 in Game 5 to win The Finals, giving Motown its first NBA title since 1990.

The Lakers as we know them will no longer be. The futures of Malone, Fisher, Payton, Kobe are all in question. Phil Jackson said after the game that he might not be back either.

Congrats to Detriot!
