For years, there have been quite a few Detroit Pistons the fans who begged the team to bring back the teal jerseys they wore in the 1990s.
Well, those fans rejoiced in February when the Detroit Free Press confirmed that the teal jerseys would be back for the 2022-23 season.
The Pistons’ teal jerseys, which the franchise wore from 1996 to 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 jerseys of the 90s, which became cult with some Pistons fans but remain unsightly for others.
The announcement was initially spoiled by Twitter users @skunwong32 and @caseyvitelli, who leaked photos of around 40 of the NBA’s 2022-23 jerseys on Tuesday. No Pistons uniform other than the “Classic Edition” set was included in the leak.

While these jerseys have not been confirmed with the Detroit Pistons, it appears that the teal jerseys the team will wear at times during the 2022-23 season have been leaked and appear to match this that the team wore from 1996-2001.
Nation, what do you think of the Detroit Pistons’ teal jerseys?
