Don't really like the simple designs some of these new NBA team jerseys been taking up throughout the past few years. There's nothing wrong with simple designs, but at least give the team name and all on the jersey a bit more elaborate look, not something so basic like this new Pistons alt jersey. Makes it look like a high school bball jersey or something, but that's just me....

HAHA

 

Those look like some knock off brand you'd find at a thrift store.

 

Like, the Lakers version of this would say, 'City of Angels' or something, with terrible off-colors

Looks alright, but all I wear is purple and gold wonder what Piston fan think. Long recognized as the historic heart of the American automotive industry, Detroit took on the nickname "Motor City."

WHAT IS WITH THESE ALTERNATE JERSEYS JUST WRITING "name" ON THE FRONT OF THEIR JERSEYS!?!?!?!

WHERE'S THE ORIGINALITY!?!?!?!!?


I COULD MAKE A BETTER JERSEY IN 2k13!!!!

SERIOUSLY THE PELICANS JERSEY IS ONLY "New Orleans" WRITTEN ON THE FRONT AND BLAND COLORING!!!

THIS NEW ALTERNATIVE JERSEY JUST HAS "motor city" WRITTEN ON THE FRONT AND IS ONE COLOR!! FREAKING WHY!!?!?!?!?

THAT'S NOT AN ALTERNATIVE JERSEY THAT'S AN IRONED ON HALLOWEEN COSTUME SOME 5 YEAR OLD MADE TO CREATE HIS OWN BASKETBALL TEAM!!!!  
 

IT LOOKS LIKE THE JERSEY OF A GLOBETROTTER OPPONENT!! OR AN NBDL TEAM!!! NO A FREAKING REC CENTER TEAM!!!


/rant over

Did you hold shift or use caps lock? That is how one can accurately detect how hard you were truly ranting. ;)

 

 

To me, the name isn't a bad idea. The jerseys... just butt ugly.

Detroit is the home for General Motors. That's my guess.

Just represents how bland the NBA has become.  No originality, bland, solid color, boring font, doesn't stick out.... having good looking jersey's actually go a long ways. The team will be as boring as these jerseys. Pathetic. Fans of the team should be able to approve of alt. jersey designs since they are the ones wanting to buy them.

 

In fact, the only team that actually went for something cool is Denver, i like those jerseys

Wait, honest question, some of you have never heard of the term "Motor City" before?

I'm just confused because I thought it was a common term when talking about Detroit but I've seen people here as well as on Twitter questioning the name.

^ Well twitter's no surprise, but I would expect more from our people here.

Listen to Em's words at the end. Pretty much "nail in the coffin".

Tell me about it. I mean they are called the pistons....

 

Guess people thought they were called that because a horse is called a piston? (sarcasm)

 

Pistons make an engine go, engines have horse power so hence they used a horse instead of just having a big piston on their jerseys
