The Detroit Pistons and Martin Lawrence have teamed up to offer a Martin-themed Pistons merchandise line.

The announcement comes roughly 30 years following the famed “Martin” Martin show debuting with Detroit as its backdrop.

The limited-edition collaboration will highlight Detroit’s love for Martin and Lawrence’s love for the city, according to a release.

Available items include jerseys, hats, shorts, sweatshirts, T-shirts and more. The merch promises to mix the look and feel of the “Martin” show with Detroit Pistons basketball.

“Detroit has always shown me so much love and always shows up for me,” Lawrence said in a statement. “From stand-up tours to fans on the street Detroit has felt like home. It’s an honor to be part of something that means so much to me to this many years later.”

“With the city of Detroit as the show’s backdrop, Martin became must-watch TV in the 90’s,” added Mike Zavodsky, Chief Business Officer of the Detroit Pistons. “Martin’s love for the Pistons in the show translated into passion for the team – the fact that he has a ring from the 2004 team is proof of that. We’re thrilled to partner with Martin to introduce a merchandise line that pays homage to both Martin and the show’s Detroit roots.”

The line will be available this Friday (May 14) via
