Mayor Dave Bing

October 7, 2015

Mayor Dave Bing was once a high-scoring NBA guard who quietly triumphed over injury and went about his business in the league for 12 seasons. During that time Bing was named to the All-Star team seven times, had his #21 jersey retired by the Detroit Pistons, was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame and named one of the NBA's 50 Greatest Players of All Time. Bing followed his successful NBA career by building his own multi-million dollar steel business in Detroit. Bing was also elected Mayor of Detroit in 2009.
