Pistons --> engines --> cars --> horsepower <-- Motor City <-- Detroit

And technically, it's still part of their package today, but not as prevalent as back when they were wearing the teal jerseys.

When did they use it, like late 90's? I don't even know.... I didn't like it.

It was mid-90's, around 1996 maybe? I recall being in Michigan around that time and seeing all the new Pistons logo merchandise. I still want the horse to be part of the identity. I think it still works for them.

I saw, I came, I left.

I never have minded the horse. I think it gives them more of an identity. What I did mind was the hideous WNBA-like color combo they used in the late 90s.

:puke:

The new pistons logo with the horse head on the basketball just screams Mavericks to me.

He was reading merchandise sales reports. Teal was the wonder color of the early 90's. The San Jose Sharks were at or near the top in NHL sales. Expansion teams like the Florida Marlins and the Jacksonville Jaguars started with teal as their primary color. While the Sharks have kept teal as their primary color, the Marlins and Jags have gone to the wonder color of the late 90's - black. The Pistons went back to their roots - the Marlins and Jags didn't have roots so they went with the latest color of the day (although black was a secondary color for both).

Well, they do have a black alt.
