Detroit Pistons set record for futility with 27 straight loss

Well these aren't your Bad Boys Pistons. Or your early 2000's Pistons. Or even the Grant Hill Pistons. This group of Detroit Pistons have just set the NBA record for most consecutive losses in a season at 27 in a row (and counting). Detroit fell to the Brooklyn Nets by a score of 118 to 112 to set the mark for futility.

The Pistons threw a boat load of cash at Monty Williams this offseason to become their new head coach (6 years, $78.5 million), but Monty very well might make more millions this season than the Pistons end up with wins. The most losses in an NBA campaign belong to the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, while the Charlotte Bobcats are owners of the worst single season winning percentage in league history. The Bobcats went 7-59 in the lockout shortend 2011-2012 NBA season.

The Pistons winning percentage currently is even worse than what the Bobcats had, though Detroit still has more than half the season to turn things around somewhat.
