    Default Throwbacks?

    Watching the Detroit/Boston game made me wonder, are we wearing any throwbacks this year? I assume we won't because we introduced the gold uniforms and the gift shop/Pacers might not want to try to promote another jersey especially in a season where attendance is down. Still, I would love to see us where the home Flo-Jos (or even away) as throwbacks (after all the Heat and Bulls are wearing their jerseys from the 90's).

    I still dont get why they havent brought the flo-jos back.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    They'll rock the pinstipes at some point. They always do.

    Hey, nice win tonight. Perhaps the only time this year I'll be rooting FOR the Pistons, but very smart move by Billups. He must have known about Tony Allen's dunk-after-the-play-is-over-and-get-injured move and figured he would be good for a foul-with-0.1-seconds-left-in-the-game manuever.

    I've always loved the Flo-Jo's. The pinstripes were cool also.

    We dealt Tony Allen's draft pick to Boston in the Rasheed Wallace deal, and he just keeps on giving...

    I'd love to see us wear the throw backs more. Ive seen at least 2 or 3 Detroit games so far this year where they have wore those white uniforms that say Detroit Pistons on them.

    I wish we'd wear the 1958 throwbacks more often. They're by far my favorite.

    God only knows why we went to the Ft Wayne jerseys or the 1970's silver before trying these.

    Kstat, I can't wait until the Pistons bring these beauties back


    Did those jerseys also come in a red/maroon alternate, or did I just imagine this?

    Never in NBA history has a jersey design so signified the downfall of a franchise...

    And no, you didn't imagine it. They were burgundy, much the same color of red the Cavs wear now.

    11 years ago, the 96-97 season. I'm pretty sure we won all of our games in those things.
