24. Chauncey Billups – Ben Wallace – Rasheed Wallace
It all came together for the Pistons at the start of the millennium. Detroit made trades to acquire both Wallace’s as well as the floor general Chauncey Billups. While fellow Detroit starters Tayshaun Prince and Rip Hamilton were great players in their own right, the point guard-big men trio made up the indispensable core of the Pistons’ memorable run. The Pistons would go on to make six-straight Eastern Conference Finals appearances from ’03-08, playing some of the best team defense the league had seen in years. Each player was capable of taking over a game on either end of the floor, making this group an especially difficult team to prepare for.
