Detroit Pistons roll out new “chrome” uniforms

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — As we get closer to the start of the regular season, teams are unveiling their newest uniforms to be broken out this season. The Detroit Pistons last season had cool “Motor City” unis, and this year they’re again nodding to the city of Detroit’s automobile heritage by introducing jerseys that they’re calling “Detroit Chrome.”

According to the Pistons…

The inspiration for the Detroit Chrome jerseys came about as a way to honor our coolest cars from the past and the cars of the future. Detroit is universally known as the auto capitol of the world, where chrome leaves an indelible mark on the cars we create. The uniforms feature a matte chrome base color with clean simple lines inspired by the classic muscle cars that have roared up and down Woodward Avenue for decades. The navy trim and Detroit emblazoned across the chest represent the blue collar work ethic that the auto industry and region was built on.

Here’s a view of the jersey as modeled by Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. What do you think?

    if they keep the detroit on the jersey then i might consider becoming die hard again…. motorcity just doesnt cut it. you either play detroit style basketball or you look like our squad has these past ten years…. prediction… ride or die this year with kcp…. if he becomes a leader then we have a shot at winning 42 games(translates to a top five playoff seed these days).
