Pistons to hold open practice at Oakland University Oct. 6


Via the team’s Facebook page:

"Get a look at the Detroit Pistons before they kick off the 2012-13 season with open practice on Saturday, October 6! The practice will take place at the O-Rena at Oakland University with pre-scrimmage festivities beginning at 11 a.m. You can meet the Pistons entertainment teams and enter to win VIP experiences and other cool prizes. Then, check out the team’s open practice and scrimmage from 12 – 1 p.m. Admission is free, but space is limited."

I’ve been to and written about a couple of these over the last few seasons, one at Oakland and one at the Palace. And although the space is limited at Oakland, it was better for fans than the one at the Palace because you’re closer to everything and can hear what’s going on on the court better. But maybe I just liked the one at Oakland better because Rasheed Wallace was there. Hard to tell.
