On Monday night, the Detroit Pistons unveiled their Classic Edition uniforms for the 2022-23 NBA season, a replica of the road uniforms the Pistons donned from 1996 – 2001.
The Pistons unveiled the jerseys during a launch party at the Renaissance Center. Jerry Stackhouse, who began his time with the Pistons organization in the teal jersey, was on-site to showcase the Classic Edition uniform.
“To Pistons fans everywhere – we heard you, and this is for you,” said Mike Zavodsky, Chief Business Officer for the Detroit Pistons, via a press release announcing the uniforms. “The teal jerseys represent a ‘colorful’ time in Pistons basketball and NBA history.
The teal jersey represents its own unique era in Detroit Pistons history. The team clinched postseason berths on three separate occasions, with franchise standouts such as Grant Hill, Jerry Stackhouse, Lindsey Hunter, and Ben Wallace suiting up in the teal horsehead threads.
The uniform is a direct replica of the original – black, yellow, and red trim on a teal jersey that features the famed flaming horsehead. United Wholesale Mortgage (UWM), the Pistons’ official jersey patch and exclusive mortgage partner, is featured prominently on the jersey’s left front strap. The team is expected to sport the teal jerseys in approximately 10 games during the upcoming season as part of their 2022-23 uniform rotation.
