    That's pretty bad. And what sucks most about it is that the Black Diamond patch had one of the better sponsor-to-uniform integrations.

    I’m glad that Nike at least got rid of the butt stamps. Some of the City jerseys are pretty cool too. Other than that, I was okay with Adidas’ offerings. Even a few of the sleeved jerseys were okay (emphasis on few).
  3. If they invert the colors so that black replaces purple and vice versa, while getting rid of the pinstripes, then I think they’d have a template to work with.

    Forgotten Rivalries

    The 90s Knicks have to be the last NBA team to have multiple rivalries at one time. There was some overlap between 1991 and 2000, but they had some very memorable beefs with the Bulls, Pacers, and Heat. What's amazing is that they bumped into at least one of these teams each postseason during that 9-year span.

    Forgotten Rivalries

    I'm trying to figure out the last great rivalry the NBA had. People cite Lakers/Celtic often and that's rightfully so. I guess Warriors-Cavs, but only one of those series was truly entertaining to watch (2016). The 2015 Finals were interesting to watch in the sense that you had a gassed Lebron dragging a fractured super team to the Finals and taking a 2-1 lead against an overconfident Warriors team, but you knew it wasn't going to last and that the Warriors would eventually get it together. Other than that, the rivalry has been pretty one-sided, especially the last 2 years with the Warriors going a combined 8-1. It's probably Spurs/Lakers from 1999-2004 then.

    Eh, not really. It had the makings of a rivalry early on with Horace Grant signing with the Magic and their back-to-back playoff meetings, but it fizzled before it really amounted to anything. It ended in a dud with Grant missing most of the '96 ECF and the Magic getting swept, followed by Shaq leaving for LA and Penny's lingering knee issues. If that '96 series were competitive, and if the Shaq/Penny situations had gone more in Orlando's favor, then I can see it being more memorable.

    At least half of their 10 losses that season occurred while wearing them. I can only recall a few of them off the top of my head: Magic, Sonics, Knicks, and Suns. The Knicks loss was probably the worst of all of them since it was a blowout on the NBA on NBC's Game of the Week.

    2018-19 NBA Season

    It probably has something to do with Ryan McDonough being a bit of a dumbass. Dude was getting rid of starting-caliber point guards as if they were Kevin Spacey DVDs. Robert Sarver isn't that much better, either.
  9. The Hollywood Nights jerseys that the Lakers had a few years ago were actually pretty cool. What I liked about them is that they served as an alternate while preserving the primary road and home jerseys. That's what Nike should've done: create a black, purple, and gold alternate based on the Hollywood Nights jersey. I know it's BFBS, but I get what they were shooting for. It's one of those things that can work if it's tastefully done. Just leave the primaries alone. And for the record, black worked really well as a tertiary color for the Knicks.
  10. Lakers to the XXXTREME!

    I wonder how these decisions are even made sometimes. Are the meetings full of yes-people? Is there no one sitting in on these meetings to explain why something might be a downgrade? p.s. This is a rhetorical post.

    I agree that it's a downgrade, but at least Billy King is no longer giving away draft picks.

    Re: Blazers: I think the ad patch as constituted on the black jersey would actually look okay on the red one. Re: Suns: Do you think it'd look better with two shades of purple or two shades or orange? It can't really be both since it wouldn't accommodate the design of the PayPal logo as the bottom P has to bleed through.
