Detroit Pistons in Teal: In defense of ‘ugly’ jerseys

After a 20-year hiatus, there is once again a teal jersey and a horse with its mane on fire in Motown. The Detroit Pistons made it official Monday night be officially releasing the first photos of rookie Jaden Ivey donning the “classic” teal road uni Detroit wore from 1996-2001 along with a hype video and a big social push.

Needless to say, not everybody was a fan. To many folks who, we shall say, do not fall into the prime demo of potential jersey sales were not particularly pleased to see these crawl out of the 90s.
