  1. I mentioned it in the Pistons thread, but these are contenders for worst secondaries of the year...
  2. Pistons secondaries in team store Twitter post. Interlocking one looks like LAC leftover (D even like a C). Is that a ball/piston going through the D other one, recalling a B for Detroit Basketball? Can't tell. Neither are any good.
  3. Is that a sail in the negative space in the logo or am I inventing things?
  4. A couple of thoughts (Thanks to Conrad): Now that it's "official" is anyone surprised that the design is SO close to the old Bad Boys era logo? I would think this will take a significant bite out of their HWC sales. Also, this has to be an extremely rare instance of a parent club changing its logo to match its afiliate.
  5. I hadn't realized how much lighter the blue is in the new throwback. I think I prefer the old ones.
  6. He was a huge part of the Lions :censored:tiness. Embarrassing that they think he's on par with GSH.
  7. I feel like that's lost with the 17-18 logo though. The piston heads are now ovals.
  8. An elevator operator was giving out pins when I was leaving the Palace last night.
  9. This is the secondary that made the rounds last year:
  10. Oh, I know. But the logo is prominent on a high-profile collectible/giveaway. Seems like a fairly good indicator.
  11. Basically a confirmation.
  12. Agreed. And I'm taking the above picture as confirmation of them doing exactly that.
  13. From Pistons' Snapchat today. Ben Wallace touring Little Caesars Arena. Notice the names of Piston champions ringing the new logo, along with the retired numbers. Beautiful.
  14. Wear the Tigers' home cap on the road as well, and wear these '45 roads full-time:
  15. Oh, it's the new logo, they just *think* they're being cute. So irritating.
  16. Are the Pistons' current road unis a lighter blue than the Bad Boys era? ColorWerx says no, but the shades look different to me.
  17. The Pistons are having commemorative nights to honor the last season at the Palace, and they honored their longtime pbp guy at halftime last night. Different banners were displayed on-court at halftime, all with the new logo prominently featured like this one I capped from a video in the team Twitter feed:
  18. The fact that this cap was actually manufactured tells me that the league has approved the logo and it's simply the Pistons' call. If it's up to the fans, I can't imagine them not going with this.
  19. Same Pistons source tells me that owner Tom Gores didn't like the new logo, but they will begin selling merchandise with the new logo (referred to as "Alternate Ball Logo") in mid-October as a way to gauge fan reaction.
  20. The center court logo font is different than what's on the baseline (shadow-wise). Ridiculous. Change the logo already!
