As we shake off the summer cobwebs and gear up for another mediocre exciting season of Pistons basketball, I would be remiss if I didn’t highlight someone actually complimenting the franchise. In an interview for Dime Magazine, Mashburn, who after 11 seasons in the NBA has amassed a small army of business interests, including various Papa John’s, Outback Steakhouses, Dunkin Donuts and several car dealerships, talks about which NBA team he’d like to own: The Pistons.

Dime: What NBA franchise would you be interested in buying?
JM: I’ve been approached by people to be a part of a group, but at the time it wasn’t right. But NBA franchises don’t come on the market very often. Personally, I’d like to buy the Detroit Pistons. I think with their fan base and history alone, the Pistons would be a good buy. Other potential owners have to realize there’s going to be a new CBA so you have to look at what the labor is going to cost. And in life, I like to do the opposite of what everyone else is doing. Buy low and sell high works for a lot of people, so why not me? And Joe Dumars has done an excellent job there to build a winner.

So at least there’s that.
