Detroit Pistons Return To The Motor City After Nearly 40 Years Away

Last night at the Little Caesars Arena in downtown Detroit, the Detroit Pistons played their first home game in their new digs. Homegrown celebrities like Big Sean, Kid Rock and Eminem were in attendance with the latter welcoming the team before tip off. CultureShift’s Ryan Patrick Hooper was there to capture sound from the game and talk to fans about what the return back home means for the city and for the team.
