  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I see it now. Thanks. It just looked like fewer stripes on the mockups. I think that's what made me curious.

    Weird, I thought they added more pinstripes. In Jonathan Isaac's rookie shoot, he was shown wearing a blue Magic uniform in the Nike template. And one of the notable differences was the added pinstripes.
  3. Atlanta Hawks Nike Jerseys

    Honestly, I'm waiting for them to go back to something that resembles the Jason Terry era set. I know they didn't make the playoffs in the 8 seasons they sported this look, but it was pretty solid. Replace the side panel logo with the Pac and apply the sublimated Triforce pattern from the current set and I think you'd have a nice look.

    I honestly couldn't care less if the college lanes serve no functional purpose for a team like the Grizzlies. The yellow trim was a nice complement to the dark blue.
  5. Atlanta Hawks Nike Jerseys

    Atlanta might have the worst sponsor patch so far. Boxy patches tend to look the least appealing, especially when they're not recolored to match the team's identity.
  6. Rare team matchups

    The Suns and Lakers almost always make a great color matchup.

    Finally, something to beat that Knicks/Hawks orange vs. red disaster from 2013.

    I'll go ahead and say it: while I like some of the transitions over to the new Nike template, they're not a marked improvement over Adidas. The template is flawed and impedes a lot of design elements that leave a lot of teams, particularly carryovers from Adidas, noticeably compromised. Overall, it's been a pretty frustrating marathon of reveals with only a few decent showings. Nothing looks great unless you're a fan of the few teams whose core designs were able to translate pretty well to the template (Kings, Wizards, Hornets, etc.). Honestly, it makes it all seem as if Adidas wasn't all that bad. Yeah, the sleeves were arguably the worst part of their run with the apparel license. But other than a few concessions, teams were able to incorporate more of what they wanted and look less cookie-cutter as a result. I'd say most of the league looked pretty good overall last season, with some obvious exceptions like the Clippers and Hawks. In sum, the grass isn't always greener and so on...
  9. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    I like the horizontal striping on the sides. Unique, but subtle enough not to be an eyesore. A red or light blue version of this template would look pretty nice.

    More pinstripes, modified side panels to adhere to the new template, blue collar, "MAGIC" on the waistband, obligatory Nike and sponsor patches. Looks like the Orlando wordmark is further down from the collar as well. Also, it looks more arched in comparison to the pre-Nike version. Some minimal upgrades, but this identity would benefit from using stars on the uniforms. Maybe a sublimated pattern on the side panels and adopting Minnesota's new font help (that font looks like an updated version of Orlando's number font from 1989-1998. And while I don't think the Nike template would allow for it, a small star hanging from the bottom tip of the collar. That would be a pretty good combination of elements from the team's different uniform eras.
  11. Minnesota Timberwolves

    This is also the organization that hired David Kahn.

    Would the HD logo look okay in green with Harley Davidson in cream?
  13. Minnesota Timberwolves

    I'd really like a revolving display of the uniform in its entirety. I appreciate the close-up photos, but I'd like to get a view of the entire thing.
  14. Minnesota Timberwolves

    There's a lot indicating that it's fake. That number font is available in the jersey creator. And look at the crowd. The white ALL IN t-shirts are a generic feature for rebranded teams. But perhaps the most telling part is Denver's uniform, which is clearly last year's set with no Nike branding whatsoever.
  15. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I hate the inconsistency between the team wordmark and the number font.
