This coming season the Pistons organization turns 50 years old. What does this mean for fans? Plenty. For one thing the Pistons will be donning a new center court logo to commemorate the occasion. They also will be wearing
new “retro” uniforms during the season. So get ready to buy some new gear next season so you can show your Pistons allegiance “old school” stlye.
This is a video from the Pistons season wrap-up that goes into more detail about the historic occasion.

THat is pretty cool.
Lets hope they make it back to the Finals and not the Cavs
It is over tonight.
ahhh im so excited for the jerseys=]
WHAT JERSEYS? WERE GETTIN NEW ONE’S????
-#1 TEENAGE PISTONS FAN
wait never mind
-#1 teenage pistons fan
Did need4sheed come up with that 50 seasons design or just brand like they did??
Sooo excited for next season now! (as if I wasn’t already) Do you have the rest of the pieces from the Season wrap-up show Natalie? I’d looove to see them! 🙂
Did you all see in the video where Isiah just hit a shot and fell awkward and that lady had her hand all on his ass?
Thats great that Detroit is celebrating 50 years of Pistons. And the “new retro” jerseys are going to be worn. And more good news is that they will have a new center court logo! As Marv Albert would say, “Yesssss!!!”
I CANT WAIT TIL THE SEASON BEGINS EITHER!!
guess what I was just reading!?!?
LEBRON JAMES’ girlfriend gave birth to their second son earlier this morning..
now you know IF (and thats a big if) they win tonight and they interview James right after the game hes gonna be talkin about “I DID IT FOR MY NEW BORN SON”… blah blah blah…
I think they should leave the logo alone. I love the logo the best. We have the best logo in the NBA.
But i’m happy that there celebrating 50 years of Pistons. But I’m sad to say that i’m probably not going to be able to see the retros because they only broadcast the big Pistons games in Atlanta. Otherwise i’m stuck with the hawks.
bigdee36 – you should buy the NBA league pass, it’d be worth the money!
Had to delete that comment, just email Bigdee36 if you want to give him information.
im in lebanon visiting family sooo now im going through pistons ANDDD need4sheed withdrawl!!!
buttt the comments on natalies last post scareddd me tooo muchhh.. i cant even imagine rip gone !! i NEEEEEED to hear from this guy SOOOON or at least hear/read ANYTHING about him.. i just hope its good news that hes still a piston next year and that him and chauncey plan to retire as pistons togetherrr :]
btw i sureee do hope along with the throwback jeresey they get those throwback shorts haaaa ;]
oh my..will they be wearin the Teal jeresy again?
lol i agree. with ana 6:26 nothing like watching sweaty guys running up and down that court showing off that booty “who wears short shorts” lol that would be halirious, but that is definately not going to happen. i don’t think THEY would even go out like that. but i am happy about them getting retro jerseys. i have to get me one and i always wondered why the other teams had those and not the pistons. i know they are going to be cute. oh yeah i cant wait to see the logo too.
p.s hey natalie did you ever get tatted up like you said you would? and if you didn’t would you get the new logo when you see it? (only if it is nice)
detroit fa life babay!!
so i’m watchin the beginning of the cavs-spurs game (yes, i’m THAT bored), and it’s rather pathetic. they stole our ‘final countdown’ song; and really – the star wars theme for the opposing team? lame. oh, and the only highlights they could show for the cavs came against the pistons…must be because that was the only decent showing they’ve ever put up.
I wasn’t a fan during the “old school” days but I can’t wait to buy myself a new jersey or two! I love shopping!
Still haven’t watched 1 second on the Finals and I’m feeling mighty fine!
Saw this headline on the Yahoo! homepage and it made me smile:
“Spurs try to close out disappointing NBA finals”
Think Stern has learned his lesson?
P.S. If Stern dictated the outcome the Conference Finals why didn’t he rig the Finals? Or was it only about getting the stuperstar to the big stage and hoping his TALENT wins him the ‘ship? Hmm…
I’m sure Stern is disappointed, but I doubt Spurs fans are ’cause the Cavs are about 24 (regulation)away from getting swept. And the ONLY disappointment I am feeling is that the Pistons are not in this =(
Get ready for a real knee-slapper… according to the announcers, Mike Brown just told his guys during a time out that they “need to play like a team”… I peed a little when I heard that from laughing so hard.
Dont look now, but I think its Lebron Time!!! The refs arent calling fouls against the Cavs and the Cavs are making shots. Its rediculas how much crap Lebron gets away with when the referees all the sudden let calls go on Defense, then when he is on Offense they call a foul on someone looking at him the wrong way(but of course after he takes a shot).
Did I say Lebron Time? I meant LeStern Time!
The announcers just said, its time for the free throw parade……
IT’S A SWEEP!!! Take that LeBITCH!! Take that VareJOKE!! Take that STERN!! Buncha LOSERS can’t even win a single game. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PISTONS ’08!!! Yeah bay-bee!!
they got their asses swepttt
Theres many good things about what just happened, here is the most relevant:
CAVS LOST IN A SWEEP AT HOME!!!!
Duncan said “I love the way he(James) handles himself”.
I would too if James choked for my team.
Thank God it’s OVER!!! Bye-Bye Cavs… welcome back to reality by the way. HEE-HEE =)
I knew Lebron wouldn’t beat two superior TEAMS in a row. Spurs vs. Pistons would have been SOOOO much more competitive.
Oh my God this is hilarious, the Cleveland crowd booed Stern the minute he got the microphone… maybe they are not as dumb as I thought they were. Maybe??
I hope it hurt LeBron’s ass to be drug all over the floor in that SWEEP! I wonder what the Cavs fans got to say for themselves and their team now!
No, they’re as dumb as you thought they were, 11:57…They’re as dumb as we all think they are!
yay im happy the cavs got swept.
lebron, maybe you should take care of ur 2 young kids..ur 22..jeez.
so the spurs win and stern did nto look or sound too happy having to give then the prize. He thanked the cavs and there fans more than the spurs when it was the spurs who won it. I couldn’t be more happier, the cavs should not have been there and the spurs showed then why. I love it. Now for the summer to be over so that we can see who will be in a pistons uniform and who will not. I hope our four are back.
Folks, it’s TV contract time with the Finals tanking like this, you think I’m a great Marketeer Stern will be able to hit the stations up for alot of money? LOL
Nike and the NBA embarrassed themselves with this poor showing.
And Ohio is not a sports city that can win anything. Not 2006-2007 any way. History of Sex on the History Channel was more interesting. Hey, you know the feudal Japanese invented Playboy and Penthouse….LOL
ya’ll all heard that LBJ named his newborn Bryce Maximas (Gladiator) James? How the hell do you pronouce that???
And he says his 2 sons are like a pair of very small forwards, just like Tayshaun Prince.
Tayshaun, I hope you dunk on his stupid head all year next year.
Greetings my brothers and sisters in arms. Yes, I’m still sad about the D. But, thanks to Tim Duncan, Pepe Le Pew…I mean Tony Longoria…I mean Tony Parker, and co. I saw the humiliation of King Nothing and his Court Jesters. But let’s give credit to the Cavs… they gave us the highlight of this decade: Varejoke trying to be the hero in game 3 and his boneheaded attempt to perform a cheap impersonation of Bill Russell… THAT WAS PATHETIC yet so funny. I just hope someone posted that anywhere. Natalie, just for comedy’s sake, can you find that Varejoke clip and post it?
But enough about the Cavs. They’re yesterday’s newspaper… and like some Latin American families used to do, yesterday’s newspaper is always useful to wipe your a$$!!!!!
Let’s talk more Pistons. So this is the 50th anniversary… AWESOME!!!! What better way to celebrate number 5-0 than with another NBA Championship. That should provide even more fuel to the fire. I like the idea of the retro uniforms. And big poppa, if you listen to Joe D’s interview in the video section, there’s no chance in hell they’re bringing the teal unis… no chance!!!! I wouldn’t mind seeing the old logo used during the Bad Boys era. I loved that one!
All in all, my friends…
IT’S A GREAT TIME TO BE A PISTONS FAN!!!!!!!
P.S. Amanda, the Cavs fans ARE just as dumb as advertised and then some… we were all witnesses!!!!!!
P.S.2: 12:27, don’t despair… right now LeBron wishes he had a small forward HALF as a good as the Prince. If I were LeFraud, I’d shut the F*($ up… or hasn’t he dug his head out of his butt to notice the ALL-STAR cast surrounding him: Pavlobrick, (NOT) Gooden(ough), Zerounas Ilgauskas, Boobie, Larry “one foot” Hughes, Varejoke (the best player in the world in the 5th quarter), Donyell “Airball King of the World” Marshall…
In all fairness, if I were LeBron, I’d pray to the heavens that his kids are actually as good as Tayshaun Prince and NOTHING like his Court Jesters!!!!!!
anonymous where did you here, read this? I guess you can take that as a good thing saying tay is a good player or as a bad one. I hope tay shots him down oh wait we already caused trouble for him maybe that is why he couldn’t get it done in the finals cause tay and the pistons made him work so much
It’s Bryce Maximus James…
Is LeBitch even married to the mother of his children? Anyone know? I thought they said something about his “girlfriend” picking the first name. What a loser… can’t even make an honest woman of his baby mama.
When is the Pistons season opener? Anyone??
Why is everyone hating on Lebron? i wouldnt even touch the topic of family thats crossing the lines.. becuz they got swept in the finals it doesnt mean we are better you all should face the facts we lost yeah so? we needed to lose.. had we won and gone to the finals we would be with the same mentality that we deserve to win it instead of playing your heart out.
Maybe it’s because he is and egotistical whiner with no morals hmmm??
Well I dont hear anyone talking about
TAYSHUAN (NOWHERE NEAR KING)PRINCE, SHEED(CANT KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT) WALLACE, REST.IN.PEACE HAMILTON, CHAUNCEY “MR AIRBALL”, CHRIS(NO KNEES)WEBBER, ANTONIO MC’NO RINGS’DYESS..
IF WE WERE SWEPT IMAGINE WHAT THEY WOULDA DONE TO THEM PISTONS ITS OBVIOUS CAVS ARE BETTER ALL THE OFFICIAL STUFFS ARE EXCUSES FACE IT YOU LOSE
AT LEAST US CAVS FAN DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE OFFICIATING WE TAKE LOSSES LIKE TRUE FANS
You guys are just jealous becuz you dont have a superstar or how you sheed called em stupestars and thats not our fault blame Joe Dumars for not drafting Chris Bosh Carmelo or Dwade YEAH AND BILLUPS HAD THE CHANCE TO WIN THE GAME WITH A 3 and what did he do? AIRRRR BALLLL at least i aint complaining with the officiating you guys JUST LOST THE D FROM DETROIT BECUZ JAMES MADE YALL HIS BITCH YOUR ARENA SHOULD BE JAMES’ ARENA ITS HIS PALACE
Your the one coming onto our site, so shut the hell up. James is going to get his ass handed to him next year….wait that already happened just a few hours ago!
Blah Blah Blah Cavs fans, 2o place is worst than the last one…, everyone knows, enjoy your vacation with no draft picks and Zidrunas and his ghost ship sailing to retirement, while one jerk have to pretend everything else, while we get our picks and Stoudemire! And if you guys got sheed in game 3, you will see what he could do in that Varejoke historical scene…
atleast we went down wit a fight, and one reason you lost (besides ur suck ass team) is that you get way to in over ur head when you win..and now your crushed, and fallin hard baby. the pistons could have deff. played better, you guys would have been enjoyin summer earlier if we had brought it. and p.s PRINCE IS THE KING. ATLEAST SHEED DOESNT FLOP, WEBBER WOULD SCHOOL ILGOUSKIS, IT’S MR.BIG SHOT TO YOU. face it, the MVP of your series was Dan Gibson.. you should be so proud.
ann.4:09. don’t you have anything better to do?? why the hell are you here when you just lost the championship? and we don’t need no “stuperstars” cuz they let you down anyways. (exampe: lebron) and i don’t see you with the championship… once you actually win one is when you earn anythin.. so enjoy the summer =] cya
haha cavs fans are hilarious! complete morons.
now, just how did I know cavs fans were gonna come to this site and start complaining? I mean it just makes sooooo much sense to go complain your incompentency to ANOTHER team. Grow some balls and bitch on the spurs site!!!
And to the little punk who said that if the spurs swept the cavs, imagine what they would have done to the pistons? Lemme tell you what happened, in 2005, the spurs and the pistons met at the NBA finals (kinda like how spurs and cavs met this year), and the spurs finally won at game 7, game 7, a series, not game 4 on the road.
And “blame Joe D for not drafting superstars” – this coming from a team that drafted Varejoke (who dribbled the ball on his feet, couldn’t touch the rim 2 feet away in a crucial game) and Iglaus-whatever (he basically just sucks beyond words)…WOW…Capital W-O-W
Cavs fans are acting crazy. Whoever that was that was complaining about calls needs to go take a look in his teams message boards. All they did was blame the refs the entire time. I think their just being hypocrits. I hate we lost to the Cavs because them getting swept clearly shows that they should not have been there in the first place. Cavs fans are still jealous of the Pistons and their hate is so strong. Get over yourselves. They kept saying they were gonna make history and they truly did make history.
The Cavs just wanted to beat the Pistons. I truly believe that they felt they already won the championship. Gooden how is “video games Jame” looking now.
YOU GUYS ARE A 1 HIT WONDER NEVER COMING BACK JOE DUMARS KNOW SO THATS WHY HES WANTS TO PLAY THE YOUNG GUYS BECUZ HE KNOWS THE GROUP THAT WON IT IN 04 IS DONE YOUR CHAMPIONSHIP WINDOW IS CLOSED!
Spurs fan shut up. You are making the rest of San Antonio look lame(well they are lame). No one is even dissing the Spurs. Your so stupid it’s sad. If the Spurs didn’t have Pop they would be another team in search of a title. Don’t kid yourself. Parker is good, but if he didn’t have a great coach he would be just an average guy and you know it. You are so lame and ignorant. This site has nothing remotely to do with you. Get over yourself and no one will ever bow to the Spurs because when it’s all said and done no one will remember them. When they talk about great teams and players they will never mention the Spurs. Everyone knew they would win the title and after their parade and the draft they will be a distant memory.
I do respect the Spurs though despite loser fans like this person.
and this is coming from the oldest team in the league
HAHA YOUR WHOLE TEAM COULDNT HIT A SHOT WHEN THEY NEEDED IT ITS STILL MR AIRBALL TO ME YOU GUYS WOULDNT BE SAYING STUPERSTARS LET YOU DOWN WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT LAST YEAR DWAYNE WADE HANDED YOUR ASS TO YOU AND GOT A RING NEXT YEAR ALL THE TEAMS ARE GONNA BE BETTER AND YOU GUYS DONT GOT ANYTHING IF US CAVS SHOULDNT BE IN THE FINALS IMAGINE WHAT WOULD OF HAPPENED IF YOU GUYS PLAYED BLOWN OUT BY 30 EVERY GAME? WEBBER KNEES WOULD OF EXPLODED NO WAY YOUR GETTING AMARE THATS HOW RETARDED PISTONS FANS ARE TO BELIEVE THAT AND WE DRAFTED KING JAMES HOW ABOUT YOU? OH NOBODY BECUZ THEY DONT EVEN GET TO PLAY HAHAHAHA
HEY WE GOT 4 SHIPS TO SHOW FOR IT LIKE RIP SAID NOONE REMEMBER ALLSTARS THEY REMEMBER CHAMPIONSHIPS AND WE GOT EM WHAT YOU GUYS GOT TO SHOW 5 EAST FINALS? HAHA AND WHICH TEAM IS FADING RITE NOW I BELIEVE ITS YOUR TEAM BECUZ YOU WILL END UP SHORTER AND SHORTER EVERY YEAR PISTONS ARE NO LONGER CONTENDERS THEY WILL BE JUST A GOOD TEAM THAT GETS ELIMINATED IN THE SECOND ROUND AT BEST
i think we know that all these capitalized comments come from the same person, either a truly truly bitter cavs fan or a lousy spurs fan. It doesnt matter which one you are oh anynomous pistons hater, because we all know you have no business talking smack about a team that doesn’t even look at you twice. And the fact that you (spurs or cavs) come on to a pistons site to talk shit just shows that you’re the dumbest P.O.S. that ever walks this earth.
So, dear anonymous pistons hater (who seriously is a little teenager going through puberty for typing in caps like that), why don’t you do the world a favor and get lost?
If you’re a cavs fan, it shows that you simply just love the pistons too much but just don’t wanna admit it. I mean, get over us already! we don’t want you no more, go away. Shoo Shoo.
If you’re a spurs fan, it shows that you consider beating the pistons an achievement of a life time (which you totally should cuz its not gonna happen again). After we beat the Lakers in 04, do u see us mentioning it again? And just for the records, you should be ashamed of yourself for making everybody hates San Antonio. I’m from Houston, and trust me, NO ONE cares about San Antonio in the state of Texas. Your city has Nothing!
I know there is nothing in San Antonio, is that why the Trolls from Mexico are stalking this site?
Dynasty means straight, not once every couple of years.
Cheap Shot Bob and Flopping Beak Nose can take the ship, because in the end, nobody else cares.
Nobody watched and Stern looked just thrilled last night.
Just be grateful you have Timmay, because that is the only class you have there.
The only thing Spurs got is Timmy and i respect the spurs but man i wont sit here and look at a cavs fan diss my pistons yeah you beat you us but you just got swept and floppin varejao thought he was sheed in game 3 at least we got young pieces what do you have? Lebron and Boobie? and rat hair NOT Gooden’ough’ NO DRAFTS PICKS your future looks preety crappy
First of all, why are Spurs fans on this site? You haven’t even finished polishing the trophy and your talking shit. I respect the Spurs but I don’t Respect Bitter ass Spurs fans who are mad because there team can win the Championship and no one gives two shits. Why are you talking? Go back to Lame ass San Antonio and injoy your Ship.
And as for the Cavs fans,you beat us o.k, but what is the one thing we have that you don’t? (A Championship) Don’t get mad because you had to taste defeat yet again. But Piston fans can you blame them? They didn’t have nothing to cheer for. I mean come on they are the mistake by the lake. So they beat us so what. What they need to do is get off our nuts and watch what happens next year. And the Whole thing about Dwayne Wade shouln’t have even been said. Dwayne and the heat beat us and WON A CHAMPIONSHIP! The Cavs beat us and got there asses SWEPT. Enough said.
Well said bigdee!!
“The Pistons made their first move of the off-season Friday, shipping Carlos Delfino to Toronto in exchange for second-round picks in the 2009 and 2011 NBA drafts.”
Im kinda happy, i never did like him, at all, plus that leaves more money this year, to keep chauncey possibly, or more of a chance to get a good draft pick.
CARLOS DELFINO HAS BEEN TRADED TO THE RAPTORS FOR A SECOND ROUND PICK IN 09 AND 2011 WE ARE DOOMED!!!!
hey did anyone read on pistons.com joe traded Carlos D for some draft picks..hes going to toranto
Now with delfino gone i really liked the guy he just didnt attack the rim enough our young lineup looks like this
PG Will Blalock
SG Alex Acker
SF Possibly the #15 or #27 pick
PF Jason Maxiell/Amir Johnson
NATALIE DELFINO GOT TRADED FOR 2 SECOND ROUND DRAFT PICKS OF 09 AND ’11 thats a terrible trade atleat get home for a first round or a player or something.
oh my goodness i know this is bad to say but i was doing a countdown for the cavs to lose and when they did i was so so happy. i mean it made my night. lebron made history that night and fell on his face. that is why i wished the pistons were the ones playing them because that would have been a series, mirror images playing against each other. and all the sourpuss cav fans had to sit there and watch another team get the torphy in their house priceless, i was laughing my head off it was funny. i bet all the cavs fans are hiding under a rock right about now because all that smack they were talking about winning the title blah blah blah. come out come out whereever you are!! let’s admitt it leave it to the pros that know how to handle situations like this. just remain on the sidelines and take notes. that was a once in a lifetime situation and you blew it. the pistons will school you in 08 and show you how it is supposed to be done.
detroit fa life babay!!
