Remember Me? Bill Curley

Boston Bill Curley. Although he only played in Auburn Hills Detroit for one season, he had a profound effect on the basketball culture at 2 Championship Drive. His per game averages in 1994-1995 were 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds. Not Jordanesque by any means, but solid contributions in only 11.2 minutes per game. But his biggest contributions can never be found searching through old box scores. Nope, you have to see who he paved the way for in the years to come.

Without Bill Curley, Pistons' fans would never have experienced the following...

Scot Pollard         Mehmet Okur
Eric Montross      Darko
Jud Buechler        Primoz Brezec
Brian Cardinal      Walter Herrmann
Kornel David       Jonas Jerebko
Ratko Varda       Zeljko Rebraca

Thank you? Bill Curley currently runs the Bill Curly Basketball Clinic (I know, right?).

For your contribution on and especially off the court, Bill Curley, Thank You. You may have never played in Portland, but you truly are and were a Trailblazer.
