The Detroit Pistons’ visit to play the Los Angeles Lakers came with an added benefit — a chance to visit Platinum Equity’s Beverly Hills offices and meet with owner Tom Gores.
The visit lasted a bit more than an hour Saturday evening. There was food aplenty, football games to watch on television, and a custom-made gift for each player: Ostrich-skin Pistons caps.
"I love that hat," Greg Monroe said. "It’s a really nice hat. It’s unique. It’s definitely a great thing to have."
