Forget Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva’s competition to be Pistons’ stretch four actually most important race of fall

Well, the Pistons’ stretch-four competition has come down to the wire. With only tonight’s preseason finale against the Hawks remaining, Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva are neck and neck.

Villanueva has taken a slight lead so far, shooting a red-hot 1-of-16 on 3-pointers this preseason. However, Daye, who’s literally shooting infinitely worse from the beyond the arc than Villanueva, could still pass Villanueva by channeling his inner Reggie Miller and shooting 1-for-7 game against the Hawks.

The ending of this competition should be dramatic, even if the prize – the title of the Pistons’ stretch four – probably won’t come with a rotation spot. Before we settle in to watch the final battle between these outside-shooting  heavyweights lightweights paper weights, let’s recap how we got here:
