For all of us Cass Elliot fans, we all know that July 29, 1974 is best known as the day that Cass died but amazingly, it isn't the only signature event that occurred that day. Also on that same day, a man by the name of Bill Davidson bought the Detroit Pistons of the National Basketball Association. Although Cass had no connections with the Pistons other than the fact that she died on the same day that Bill Davidson bought the Pistons, besides being a longtime Cass Elliot fan, I am also a longtime Pistons fan. I was born in Detroit and have lived in the Metro Detroit area my whole life. Although Mr. Davdison's purchase of the Pistons wasn't earth shattering news at the time that he bought the team, the Pistons went on to win 3 NBA Championships (1989, 1990, and 2004). He owned the Pistons for 35 years until he died in 2009. RIP Cass and Mr. D.
