    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Hell no. Retire Muggsy & Dell's numbers, but no way does 'Zo deserve to have his retired, and LJ is a borderline case. Sure, they put the Hornets on the map, but both of them ended up alienating the fans with their behaviour and attitudes. They can be honoured some other way.

    Mid-1980s Golden State Warriors gold uniforms?

    I've got some pics of it in action in a preseason game against the Sonics (who are wearing their home unis). I'll try and dig them out when I get home from work.

    Nice, but #30 in that style of uni will always be Bernard King.

    Throwback Jerseys to Prior Franchise Cities

    Yeah, 1994-95 preseason, the ABA ball was used by the Nuggets and Pacers for an ABA throwback game. Got pictures of the unis, but I've never seen a colour pic of game action showing the ball in use. I believe there was some talk about potentially using the ABA ball in one of the games of the '03 Finals, the first to feature 2 ABA teams - that was shot down fairly quickly, although the Nets did receive permission to wear the throwback unis .

    Seattle Supersonics Uniform Question

    They didn't. They carried over the same road uniforms from the previous season whilst adding new home unis in 1977-78. They added matching road unis for the 1978-79 season, just in time to win the title. Interesting sidenote - the previous uniform set was introduced when Bill Russell took over as coach - he wanted the unis to resemble the Celtics' uniforms!

    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.
