Blue Collar Champions: The Official NBA Finals 2004 Retrospective
"Hard work pays off" is more than a slogan to the Detroit Pistons. It is a mindset and mantra that was embraced by every player and every coach that participated in Detroit's march to the 2004 NBA championship. Blue Color Champions documents every twist and turn of the Pistons' extraordinary season, culminating in their incredible playoff performance and eventual world championship upset of the Los Angeles Lakers. Over 400 color photographs from leading sports photographers complement text from celebrated NBA author John Hareas (Yao Ming, NBA's Greatest) and former Pistons star and current general manager Joe Dumars. The book devotes a chapter to each of the Pistons' star players, including hard-working Ben Wallace and flamboyant Rasheed Wallace, as well as one to head coach Larry Brown, and fratures a foreword by Pistons great and current general manager Joe Dumars. Blue Collar Champions is a must for every Pistons fan, and anyone interested in commemorating the historic season for the team.
