My Detroit Sports is a sports news website, owned and operated by Justin Brown and Lance Martinez. We are dedicated to bringing the latest entertaining and inspirational sports stories to fans in the state of Michigan!
Lance and Justin met as Detroit Pistons season ticket holders. It was their passion for ’90s era of basketball’, collectibles and dedication to current Detroit sports teams that spawned the idea of documenting their experiences through My Detroit Sports.
