Two American cities in the process of a renaissance. Two teams currently going through tough times in terms of wins and losses. Two organizations depended on in their communities to be so much more than just basketball teams.
Detroit is building a downtown arena that the Red Wings and Pistons will share in the coming years. Why leave a perfectly fine arena in Auburn Hills, Michigan if you are the Pistons? Because a return to downtown Detroit will help strengthen their city. Memphians , and their FedExForum at 191 Beale Street in the heart of Memphis, can surely relate.
It is more than just basketball. Memphis gets that...but so does Detroit.
