The Detroit Pistons announced today that for the first time since the 05-06 season, the team will be wearing alternate uniforms. The new-look unis display a sense of pride in their town at a time they really need it, featuring “Motor City” on the front of the navy-blue and red jerseys.
“We are pleased to unveil our new Motor City uniforms and display our pride in the metro Detroit community,” said Dennis Mannion, CEO of Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Detroit Pistons. “When you say Motor City – no matter where you are in the world – everyone knows you are talking about Detroit. We are proud to represent Detroit and hope these uniforms will serve as a source of pride for our fans and this region.”
Personally, I think the alternate jerseys are a great idea. The city is struggling and the team itself is going through a lot of changes. The uniforms won’t make the team play better, but it could serve as a reminder that the city was once great and can be great again. There couldn’t have been a better time to unveil these jerseys, and if I were a Pistons fan I’d be lining up to get one for myself.
