Default Pistons ('04-'08) vs Celtics ('08-'12)

Which team had the better five year stretch? Which will go down in history as a better overall team/run?

- They both won titles their first year together (in the Sheed/KG eras), and both got to the Finals another time and lost in 7 games.

- The Pistons have the edge in ECF appearances with 5, while the Celtics only made 3 (although they played without KG one of the years they missed the ECF).

- Pistons: Five 50+ win seasons, one 60+ win seasons
Celtics: Four 50+ win seasons, two 60+ win seasons

- Celtics: 5 division titles
Pistons: 4 division titles

- The Celtics won their meeting in 2008 in 6 games, however that was at the end of the Pistons run and the beginning of the Celtics.

The stats favor the Pistons slightly, but I have to give the slight edge to the Celtics. They faced tougher competition in the East than the Pistons did and had a similar run.

Once Larry Brown left the Pistons in 05 they were no longer legit. I was getting hard looking at that Flip Saunders team that had Webber at center. I knew the heat would *** them. Celtics problem was injuries in 09 and 10, but they had a better run and will be remembered more as a team.

Better question would be 03-05 Pistons or 08-10 Celtics.
