Probably going for a dirty Martini and palm trees for a logo

Im over the basketball look in the logo

At this point id rather bring back the horse head from the 90s but with a much better design

We need something to stand out, alot of teams are going with a circle / basketball in the main logo

I really like this concept out of many Pistons logos posted, we could even have a redesigned Hooper costume

we need to shed our old jerseys and logo and start fresh under SVG and Gores

however, this could turn into a disaster esp with Gores at the helm, look at what happened with the Clippers logo and jerseys

Image

his nets logo looks awesome, way better than the Jay Z inspired garbage they have now

When I worked for the Pistons a few years ago I saw several uniform designs that was in storage. Wonder if they pulled any of those up.

Just a few font alterations and the same red white and blue color scheme. As I said, they were in storage so they must have been scrapped or just put aside as something to reference.

Nice, I'm looking forward to this. I love the chrome unis, absolutely love them. I like that second one Laimbeer posted.

I really enjoy the sleek, darker hues of the first image. Add some Chrome in there and I'm down like dankey kang.

I must be in the strong minority, I like the old horse head design. Having a more modern redesign of that would make me happy :). I'm excited to see what we get though.

We need an identity and one of that starts with a great and memorable logo.

I hope this redesign reflects that mantra.

We should be allowed to wear the flint tropics uniforms for one game in support of flint.

That would be amazing!

I would like to see something that incorporates pistons. Something simple like this:

Have a basketball as the background, with Detroit overlaid in a semicircular pattern over the piston domes and Pistons the same way at the bottom over the connecting rods. I'd dig that.

Just doodled around and designed a concept of my own, I'd like it if Pistons had something similar to this:

Meh, I really like our logo/colors/uniform/court. I would rather stick with what we have instead of risking another teal era. The only thing I want to see is the all red alternative jerseys we had about a decade ago.

Not bad for a start. Definitely needs some more life to it though, and more blue.

Maybe put a basketball over the crossed pistons so it looks like a skull and crossbones ;)
