The Detroit Pistons started out as the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons, named after their owner Fred Zollner who named the club
after himself and his piston manufacturing business.
Zollner moved the team to Detroit in 1957, removed his last name from the moniker and the Detroit Pistons were born. Seeing as
Detroit has been known for automobile manufacturing, the name fits quite nicely.
