The Detroit Pistons have finished their media day and are headed to training camp, but not before giving us some iconic photos.

The day was decried as “boring” by some but with all of the drama going on around the league it was nice to be one of the few teams talking hoops and not debating 6th grade science.

There were some great moments and quotes and also some amazing photos that I thought were far better than the standard media day shots that often look like cheesy school photos.

Speaking of cheesy school photos, here are a few that were a bit corny and struck me more as something kids would do on their first day of kindergarten:

Yep, everyone loves everyone at this point in the offseason, though I’d like to offer my services for cooking classes to Josh Jackson. I am a qualified instructor and we can go for any cuisine you like, Mr. Jackson, hit me up.

Here are some of the photos I did appreciate and I’m sure we’ll be seeing as wallpaper and avatars all over Pistons’ Twitter.

Detroit Pistons: Best photos from media day

Kelly Olynyk looking like a 1980’s teen movie villain:

The picture of Olynyk in the bottom left corner actually cracked me up, as it has serious “Johnny from the original Karate Kid movie” vibes.

I really loved the Jerami Grant shot, as it is just a striking photo that highlights his intensity and insanely long arms. The Cade Cunningham photo is cool from a lighting perspective but it looks a bit staged and not very natural.

I also really liked the Frank Jackson shot, as it’s always funny when players do these types of “screaming at nothing” photos, but it his new mustache that makes it art.

But I have to say, the shot of Saddiq Bey lacing up his sneakers is my favorite, as it has a ” 1970’s cyber-punk” look and his hair reminds me a bit of Wesley Snipes in Demolition Man, like Saddiq is preparing to go out and wreck a city.

It was great to see and hear from the Detroit Pistons, who tip off training camp today and are ready to go to work.
