The Detroit Pistons 2022-23 City Edition uniform tells a story bigger than Detroit Basketball.
This uniform, designed alongside Pistons Creative Director of Innovation Big Sean, pays tribute to Saint Cecilia’s aka “The Saint.”
Saint Cecilia’s is a historic gymnasium in the heart of Detroit where many legends have played basketball. NBA stars such as Dave Bing, Magic Johnson, George Gervin and Jalen Rose have gathered for decades playing pick-up ball in this old church gym, which served as a beacon of hope for many Detroiters and created a safe place to play basketball.
The uniform is uniquely colored green, representing the walls of the Saint Cecilia’s Gym.
Additionally, the jersey features a set of three stars across the chest as a symbol of the Pistons three NBA Championships, and the jersey jock tag anthem highlights the iconic Saint Cecilia’s mantra, “Where stars are made, not born”, a phrase painted directly on the gym’s floor.
The finishing touch of the jersey includes Big Sean’s signature, a nod to the Detroit native who helped design the jersey.
The shorts are adorned with a replica of The Saint’s iconic stained glass window and sport white and blue side stripes.
