    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Also, the Magic started in 1989, so they're a year early.

    The court was used from 1995-97. They didn't tweak the uniforms until the 1997-98 season.

    Hornets to Unveil New Uniforms Today

    The original wordmark was much more radially arched and the pinstripes thinner. These look like poorly-made knockoffs.

    One Year Uniforms

    Nope, wore 'em for 2 seasons, starting in 1985. The NBA logo didn't appear on the unis until the '86-'87 season.

    Nuggets Evolved: Unveil New Logos, Colours, Uniforms

    I feel like I need to point out that the rainbow skyline uniforms weren't introduced until the 1982-83 season, NOT 1981-82. Sorry for being so pedantic, but having spent 25+ years researching NBA unis it's important to me that we get stuff like that correct. God knows there's already enough incorrect info out there, a lot of it propagated by the NBA themselves.

    Teams reusing jerseys

    Sand Knit supplied all NBA uniforms until Champion took over in 1990. I've seen numerous examples of SK jerseys being used as late as the 1991-92 season, some of which had the tags replaced with Champion tags.

    Teams with similar colors as the Houston Oilers?

    The Sacramento Kings used powder blue and red for their road unis from '85 to '90, despite the logo and home unis not featuring that colour.

    Like the Bucks' Irish Rainbow unis? They used the Astros' stripe pattern for side panels and warmups from '77 - '93. Fun fact - Sand Knit's name for that design was "UltraStripe". Ripon Athletic (who I believe bought SK's intellectual property) still produce a version of that uni to this day.

    Have you seen this jersey in a game

    Nope, never worn. It was a fashion Jersey, there were a whole range of throwback jerseys in non-team colours.

    I'm more shocked that there's Hornets gear there. Last time I went I couldn't even get a t-shirt.

    Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Nah, those are the right Hawks unis for Mookie. The wrong ones are the '95 set with the gradient and giant hawk. They would be the wrong unis for Kevin Willis - like 'Nique, I always picture him in the Pac-man set.

    Names below the number

    The Kings are the only team that looks right with the NOB under the number as far as I'm concerned. They also had the longest run, going right back to the Cincinnati days before finally going to the standard format in 1990.

    Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    The Hawks changed to that uniform set for the 1992-93 season, so 'Nique had a season and a half in them. Not that that makes them "right', just saying.

    Is anyone surprised that Nike fudged up the NBA after seeing what they did to the NFL? God, I miss the days of Sand-Knit and Champion.

    Nicknames On Jerseys

    Elvin Hayes' nickname was "Big E", simple as that.
