    I like sports uniforms. So I enjoy seeing more of them. Are some terrible? Yep. Are some off-brand? Yep. But how boring would these boards be if everyone was like the Yankees and Canadiens? What the hell would people with this interest talk about? Give me more alternates. Give me throwbacks and fauxbacks. Give me crazy designs and weird concepts and experiments. GIVE ME MORE UNIFORMS TO LOVE AND HATE AND ARGUE ABOUT BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT'S FUN ABOUT LIKING SPORTS UNIFORMS.

    Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    https://twitter.com/NBA/status/896011928233021441/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc^tfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fboards.sportslogos.net%2Findex.php%3Fapp%3Dcore%26module%3Dsystem%26controller%3Dembed%26url%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2FNBA%2Fstatus%2F896011928233021441 Front number font same as in the unveil pics, but can't see back. They wouldn't have two different number fonts, would they?

    Love, love, love. Huge upgrade. But why are there different number fonts on the front and back?

    Minnesota Timberwolves

    Those Wolves jerseys are pretty nice; just not for the Wolves. The original blue/green is so fantastic, it boggles my mind that they don't embrace it.

    That swoosh is framed awfully nicely...

    Several new jerseys in this video, including Pelicans and Jazz.
  8. Salt Lake City is 3% African-American. The NBA is 75% African-American. Makes complete sense that players don't want to go to a city where they would be overwhelmingly in the minority. That's why people took the Gordon Hayward signing so hard; "if we can't even keep the whitest white guy in the league in Salt Lake City, what chance do we have of keeping anyone?"

    Nothing "allows athletes to showcase their personalities" like carefully proscribed regulations enumerating the specific methods by which said personality can be showcased.

    Nobody who frequents this board has any damn space to mock anyone for caring about a sports logo. People here hyperventilate over kerning, for Christ's sake.

    Forgotten Secondary Logos

    In my old Panini NFL sticker books, there was at least 1 year where every team had a "crest" logo that I never saw anywhere else. Wasn't sure if they were designed for the sticker book specifically or if they were used in some other way. Only team without a unique one was the Raiders, who just used their normal logo.

    Rare NBA Getty Images, Google & Internet Find

    I seem to recall he wore 12 briefly in between, maybe only for the preseason. Could be making this up out of thin air but it's pretty set in my mind. Also around the time I saw him at the dry cleaners across from my house when he and Nick Van Exel were roommates in Culver City.

    NFL 2017 changes?

    "Hey, Bob?" "Yeah, Stan?" "You know those two really popular sets of logos and branding we have? "You mean the ones that both sell a ton of merchandise?" "Yeah, those. You know what we should do, Bob?" "What should we do, Stan?" "Let's just get rid of one of them." ... "Stan, have you been drinking again?"

    Man, it's jackasses like you that make these boards no fun to visit anymore. Why can't people just talk about logos and uniforms they like and/or don't like? I know many of the people on here are designers themselves so this is their livelihood, but we're all here because we enjoy talking about this stuff, right? Do we all need to take it so seriously? What does this kind of response accomplish other than making this thread a drag to try to follow? It happens in almost every thread these days. Who the hell wants to read a thread where 2/3 of the posts are people bitching back and forth at each other about something that is only tangentially related to the thread topic? I've been on here for 12 years and it just seems much worse than it has ever been recently. edit: and yes I know I'm doing the same thing I'm complaining about here but it's my first time so i get a pass
