Detroit — The Pistons’ historic teal jerseys are officially back.

The franchise announced Monday evening during a launch party at the Renaissance Center that the teal uniform design, worn from 1996-2001, will serve as the team’s Classic Edition uniforms for the 2022-23 season.

Did they clear it with Xi? Still going to have the political statements on the back? Window dressing doesn't win basketball defense and offensive execution does. Perhaps they should focus on those elements with greater resolve than has been apparent. Earning a high lottery pick every year is a sign of failure; not accomplishment.
