Greatest Home Returns In NBA History
10 – Ben Wallace, Detroit Pistons (2000-2006, 2009-2012)
Before finding a home in Detroit, Big Ben Wallace spent his first four years in the NBA trying to find his niche in Washington and Orlando. But when he stepped into the Palace of Auburn Hills clad in Piston white, Wallace knew it was a match made in heaven. His tireless work ethic and elite defensive instincts personified the culture of the highly successful Detroit teams in the early to mid 2000s. Ben Wallace was the heart and soul of the Detroit Pistons and the pinnacle of his career was in the 2004 NBA Finals where the highly unheralded Pistons defeated the much celebrated Lakers team in a classic David versus Goliath matchup. Wallace left as a free agent in 2006 to join the Chicago Bulls but the bond between Wallace and the city of Detroit was too strong that he eventually found his way back to Motown in 2009 until he retired in 2012.
