The Detroit Pistons unveiled their 2022-2023 “statement” jersey and they’re just so nice.

The alternate jersey is black-based with blue and red stripes across the chest, and blue lining on the sleeves and collar. The Pistons say the jersey was inspired by a voicemail left by a fan back in 2020.

The merch roll out is already in motion, with hats, socks and shirts with the same design theme. The stripes pay homage to the warmup tops the Pistons wore during the late 80′s and early 90′s.

“This year’s Statement Edition jersey aims to bridge some elements of the Pistons past with our exciting future,” said Alicia Jeffreys, Chief Marketing Officer for the Detroit Pistons. “When we launch a new uniform, every detail is considered, but first and foremost our goal is to create a jersey that Detroit can be proud of.”

This, of course, comes after the Pistons announced the return of the classic teal jerseys, worn from 1996 to 2001.
