Detroit Pistons to bring back ‘cult-status’ jerseys for 2022-23 season [Photo]

For years, there have been quite a few Detroit Pistons fans who have begged for the team to bring back the teal jerseys they wore back in the 1990s.

Well, those fans can rejoice as the Detroit Free Press has confirmed that the teal jerseys will be back for the 2022-23 season.

The Pistons’ teal jerseys, which the franchise wore from 1996-2001, will return for the 2022-23 season as the team’s “Classic Edition” uniform, a league source confirmed to the Free Press on Wednesday. The uniforms will be an exact replica of the 90s jerseys, which have reached cult status with some Pistons fans but remain unsightly for others. 

The announcement was initially spoiled by Twitter users @skunwong32 and @caseyvitelli, who leaked photos of approximately 40 of the NBA’s 2022-23 jerseys on Tuesday. No Pistons uniforms other than the “Classic Edition” set were included in the leak. 

Nation, are you are a fan of the teal jerseys?
