    Now if they would wear their gold pants full time that would be even better!

    LeBron joined a big three after watching the big three Celtics beat his ass for three years. He didn't join the Celtics. There's some important context there.

    i can't believe the cavs won't just wear their standard away uniforms. I can understand wearing the black uniforms at this point just cause they won in them last year, so maybe it would bring them some "luck"... but why wear the blue alternates? The standard away even reps Cleveland, the Cavs seem to take such pride in their city and vice versa, I'm surprised that they wouldnt want to wear a uniform that says Cleveland on the front Plus it looks GOOD. this might be my favorite uniform of theirs.

    And it wouldn't look all that "off" either, especially considering some old film and pictures of the 50's set make the navy almost look black anyways: I'm totally down for it. Great idea. FWIW, the jackets the Braves wore in that era actually were black:

    Yeah, but they totally got hosed by the ump on that play at the plate in St. Louis on August 17, 1934. They should be over .500.

    Thanks all! Glad to see the Suns uniforms have been well-received so far. Here is the home version....I debated removing the black stroke from the wordmark and numeral, but kept it for the sake of continuity as well as since it does not appear to throw anything off. Phoenix Suns Home Uniforms I will be working on an orange alternate for them next to complete their set, but we might be a few days out on that one.

    Here is a black alternate for the Suns....basically just a handful of color swaps on the purple away jerseys with their '90s alternates in mind. Phoenix Suns Alternate Uniforms

    I mean, I was a heavy supporter of the 2010-2014 Miami Heat (and still support the franchise to this day)... and I didn't care for the disdain they received. I was happy to see them dominate, and considering how rare it is to see a team actually win a lot in South Florida these days, that just made it sweeter. Enjoy this while you can, because it may go by quicker than you'll realize.

    Gold pants with a stripe that matches the helmet, and call it done. They can just do without the black pants... a stripe is only going to help a little if they continue to wear those socks.

    I will admit the Braves would actually look really good in black and red, though I wouldn't want to actually see if come to fruition. I don't understand this desire to change teams' long-established traditional color schemes in order to gain better "differentiation." To me, a well-established decades-long color scheme should be relatively sacrosanct, and is part and parcel of the team's identity. If this were a new league being created today, would I say that there should be fewer red/white/blue teams? Of course, but that isn't the case here. I hate the idea of ignoring the long histories and fan identification that the Braves, Twins, Indians, Angels, Red Sox, etc., have with their respective team colors. The most traditional baseball color scheme was some mix of red, white, and blue - it's part of baseball's traditional aesthetic, just as gray road jerseys and monograms on caps are. There's a very long history of red, white, and blue with the franchises wearing those colors. Their fans identify with those colors. That shouldn't be sacrificed in the name of "differentiation."

    Thanks a lot for the positive feedback on the Suns uniforms -- it is very much appreciated! Now we are on to the Oklahoma City Thunder. This is basically a concept I created a while back and adapted to this template -- it is based on the late-'90s Golden State Warriors' color palette and uniforms that share some similarities with OKC's current identity.

    We've gone over this before - red is a traditional color for angels. Going way back.

    "Super teams are good for the league" is something I keep hearing from some people, but even if that's true I don't know how anyone could argue that what Durant did wasn't super lame. I loved when the Pistons beat the Lakers because that felt like the correct cosmic result for that ring chasing Lakers team. Same for the Mavs-Heat finals*. *edit: the 2011 one. Forgot about their 2006 matchup.

    This Angels hat color combination dates back 56 years. Any fears that they too-closely resemble the Red Sox should be set aside. It's their best look.

    It's amazing that he's garnered about a 100th of the criticism LeBron did. OK, LeBron is supposed to be "the" guy and his "decision" production was off-putting, but at least he helped an average team get better after leaving a pretty hopeless situation in Cleveland. Durant had the opportunity to get another crack at these guys and try to right the wrong of the 2016 Conference Finals. And he could have done it with only a one-year commitment.* Instead, he skipped out on the challenge of trying to make that happen and joined a team that probably could have won it all without him. It was the ultimate coattail-ride. *And I think that's the part that bugs most...that he could have had one more shot at 'em before having to make a long-term decision. At that point, I'd be a bit less hard on him. Part of it is about the laziness of counting rings (and ignoring circumstances) from fans/media that he probably bought into; maybe there is no extra satisfaction with a hard-earned effort to finally get your team over a huge hump than there is just joining a juggernaut. And LeBron's still the villain.

    This series is great. I hope it continues to the 2011 final at the very least.

    I agree. If you're someone who doesn't think the Senators should embrace the Roman imagery (a defensible stance, but not mine), you should get behind the Peace Tower as defining imagery for the Ottawa Senators. It's a lot more persuasive than Times New Roman O.

    Here is the orange alternate -- the color balance on this one was somewhat tricky because of the order of colors in the gradient, but please let me know your thoughts. Phoenix Suns Alternate Uniforms Thanks!

    Another random jersey I designed today, this time for the Phoenix Suns. I have liked-but-not-loved each of their identities since the early '90s, so much like the previous Cavaliers jerseys this is more than anything just an amalgamation of eras. The '90s color palette and gradient are too interesting to exclude and the sunburst graphic is too unique to exclude, but those elements in their original forms look too dated and what remains of them in their current forms looks boring. So, we modernize the current sunburst graphic with the color palette and gradient from the '90s, retain the current font -- which I love, and clean up the uniform while adding pops of color in the form of collar and armhole trim. Phoenix Suns Away Uniforms Upgrade, downgrade, or lateral move?

    Over 2000 years of Orthodox tradition and iconography has red symbolizing divinity, and angels by extension.

    Apples and oranges since I doubt the Celtics had the cap space to afford him at the time.

    The only thing that really bothers me about all of this are the "Warriors Fans" who didn't give two s**ts about this team before 2013, suddenly are huge GS fans and talking trash. I don't care if their success has drawn you to the team and the sport, but don't talk s*** like you've been supporting them since the Mullen era in the 80's/90's, or the J-Rich dunking heydays during the 2000's. For the true fans (they've always had fantastic support), just enjoy and savor this run while you can. It's so much fun to be part of something so special and historic.

    One of the fairly-recent rules changes. If the NHL Video Office sees a definitive goal, they stop play to get the ref's attention that there's a good goal. It's to prevent extra play from taking place, especially if there's a long stretch of play with no stoppage.

    I'd honestly always assumed those jackets were navy. You learn something new every day! I really like this. They could pretty much go exactly this route - black tomahawk with gold outlines and all - and call it a day.

    Everyone knew there was going to be a big cap jump in 2016. The players wanted it all up front; the owners and league wanted it to be smoothed over multiple years. The players won. It's one of the (several amazingly-timed) factors that allowed the Warriors to sign Durant.

    Something along the lines of that? I think that color scheme could work.

    Well, that did look a little like Boston, as did the inaugural set, sure, but this did not look like Boston at all: When they Angels did the right things, they looked like the Angels. They can (and should) absolutely pull off a navy cap w/ red bill, so long as they pair it with the right trim and elements. This red on red on red on red nonsense they keep insisting on just never has worked for me.

    A BP/ST hat, maybe. But once you give the Angels some of the details to match the crown of the hat (undershirt, belt, shoes), they do start to look like Boston. You could say that's fitting because they entered the American League as damn near a clone of Boston, but I think they need to stand apart.

    To throw my prediction out here: Cavs in 7, coming from a optimistic pessimist of a Cavs fan. But honestly, at the moment it's feeling like Warriors in 4. KD is a very good player and brings so much to that Warriors squad. I saw what he's done in Game 1 & 2, and I know that's gonna continue. My head's telling me not to panic, we were down 2-0 and (3-1) last year. This is Believeland after all. I believe that the Cavs can do it. I think coming home will really benefit the Cavs, and hopefully we leave Cleveland in a tied series. We need everyone to step up if we want to win this series. LeBron is LeBron, and I'm glad Kevin Love has shown up this series, but there's so many key Cavs that aren't really showing up. Kyrie has been average so far and JR and Tristan have done next to nothing, which might come down to matchups (JR on Klay is a rubbish matchup for JR, would rather see Shump start as he's a better defender). The bench has been too quiet in their time on the floor, and that needs to change. I also need to see some Derrick Williams and Channing as I think both of them could really be a key in this series. Deron I feel can also be quite handy at times, but hasn't shown it so far either. I still think the Cavs can do it in 7. Until the game we go down 4-something, I will still think the Cavs can do it.

    You've been helping me with these concepts from the very beginning, of course I can do Omaha instead. However, the next team up will actually be the New Orleans Krewe of the newly-formed NL South. Using the purple, gold, and green, the team is named after Mardi Gras krewes. The logo features a fleur-de-lis (different from that of the Expos) with a jester hat and the face of a jester's mask.

    Next! Philadelphia Flyers The Flyers have only really had two (long-term) looks in their history so I sought to combine the best elements from them into a cohesive set. The alternate is based off their short lived edge jerseys with some important fixes. The sleeve stripes have been fixed so they don't look so wonky from the side and hem stripes were added to make things less top-heavy. C & C appreciated as always, thanks for looking!

    I recall 1994 rumours on a jersey with "NYR" style numbers So I would say this is very possible.

    Angels should at least have a navy hat somewhere in the set, whether it be an alternate or ST/BP. A navy hat with red brim doesn't really cut close to the Red Sox.

    This is a great concept. The color scheme...and that cream alt! I think you could easily build an identity off of that one look.

    For those of you who prefer the classic logo I made a version of that too. I rounded it off to look less abrupt and more like an Igloo.

    I like what you're shooting for here. My only real critique would be that the fleur-de-lis design inside the circle gives off a basketball logo vibe.
