(WXYZ) - The Pistons will wear a jersey with the words "Motor City" across the chest for ten games this season.
It's the first time the Pistons will wear alternate jerseys since the team sported red jerseys in a handful of games during the 2005-06 season. The Pistons were undefeated wearing the red jerseys until they fell to Miami in the final game of the 2006 Eastern Conference Finals.
"We are pleased to unveil our new Motor City uniforms and display our pride in the metro Detroit community," said Dennis Mannion, CEO of Palace Sports & Entertainment and the Detroit Pistons. "When you say Motor City – no matter where you are in the world – everyone knows you are talking about Detroit. We are proud to represent Detroit and hope these uniforms will serve as a source of pride for our fans and this region."
