Trey Kerby of The Blowtorch searches high and low across the Internet for NBA-related goods you never knew you needed. You know, phenomenal swag. Email Ball Don't Lie any relevant products you find here.
It has always been assumed that the alternate jersey was really just a marketing gimmick. There's really no need for a third team jersey, except to sell that jersey to fans who want to look super fresh at the next game.

I know it's only November, but buy this, and your Christmas shopping is pretty much done. Who wouldn't want to own the jersey of the most smiley point guard since Magic Johnson? Especially with the Pistons' vaunted cartoon horse logo. Everybody loved that look. And it only costs a single American penny. There is literally nothing bad about this jersey, except that it's a Mateen Cleaves(notes) alternate jersey.
