  1. I hope not. It seems I’m in the minority but I’ve always liked that cut/style better than crew neck. My inclination would be no, especially since Golden State also uses that cut since Nike ended the wishbone collars last year.

    Memphis Grizzlies Appear to be Tweaking Logos

    I hope this whole gray fad a lot of the league is going through right now dies off soon. Teams using ugly gray jerseys like the Pistons, Celtics, and Wolves come to mind as particularly egregious offenders.

    Pistons have heavily emphasized navy and gray in recent years (sigh).

    Pistons aren’t sniffing the playoffs this year.. I am hopeful they might change up their terrible alternates in the coming years, though.

    This is ridiculous. I was actually excited when Nike got the NBA contract a few years ago (remembering the great job they did for 8 teams back in the late 90s/early 2000s), but it’s been really bad so far.

    Something about bright colors on a gray base jersey just looks weird to me. One of the reasons I don’t like the Pistons “Chrome” jerseys.

    Contrasting accessories look so much better than the color rush look Nike pushes. I wish more teams would do this.

    As I recall, the Knicks lost every game the orange alts were used in and the players regarded them as bad luck. Of course, it had nothing to do with the roster being abysmal.

    Common sense tells you a bright orange uniform would be garish, but somehow these worked. I understand why a lot of people didn’t like them, but they look good IMO.

    There's a reason it only lasted 5 years (1996-97 until 2000-01.)

    They did, according to the specs on the website they used to announce the new logo last spring. http://content.palacenet.com/content/logo/ I’m not a fan of either of their alts (statement or city), but I’ll admit the City looks a bit better in reality than it did in mockups. The statement I think would look better if it removed the thick blue stripe/piping around the shoulder cutouts to keep it in line with their regular home and away. But I’d still rather have the old 2000s red alternate back than either of those.

    As a Pistons fan, I was hopeful that these were going to be sparingly used when they didn’t debut until weeks after the official release of the Statement jerseys (as I think they’re pretty terrible - the Spurs are the only team that can really pull off a gray uniform, IMO.) Unfortunately, as of tonight’s game, I believe they’ve now been used 7 out of the last 8 games, and the just as bad (or worse) Motor City jerseys are yet to debut. The Pistons/Nike really messed up their jersey set outside the classic home and away.

    I was pretty excited when Nike got the NBA contract, remembering how good of a job they did back in the late 90s/early 00s when they outfitted 8 teams. Everything was high quality back then, there was some degree of individuality to warmups (Pistons and Celtics warmups had elements of their classic 80s style warmups for example), and they did a good job spearheading several teams uniform designs in that timeframe. So yeah, how poorly things have gone so far has been a disappointment. I’m not a fan of most of the statement and city jerseys, quality doesn’t seem to be great, everything is templated, and merchandise rollout and availability is sparse. I still prefer it over Adidas, but that might be because I’ve always been a bit of a Nike fanboy.

    I agree. I think the NBA did it best under David Stern, when they had home, road, and one alternate jersey - which was almost always just a color swap on the existing road jersey.
