On Tuesday , Nike announced that all 30 NBA teams, including the Detroit Pistons, will sport the “Jumpman” logo, which is a silhouette of NBA great Michael Jordan, on an alternate uniform.

Jordan, who starred with the Bulls, was a longtime nemesis of the Pistons in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. The announcement for the gray alternate uniforms drew a wide range of emotions from Pistons fans.

Here are some of them:
