The Pistons decide to completely rebuild after getting off to another poor start which leads to the ouster of Coach Dick Vitale who would go on to become a popular television personality, with catch phrases like"diaper dandy"" and""dipsee do dunk aroo."" However the Pistons were hardly awesome with a capital A as they finished dead last with a franchise worse record of 16-66 under Vitale's replacement Richie Adubato."
