    2018-19 NBA Season - New and improved!

    Yep. Or, in the case of Utah, I also blame the 1998-99 NBA Lockout and the subsequent 50-game 1999 season that that followed that buried the Jazz’s next best chance at a title. I have a feeling the NBA finds itself in this situation after the next CBA.

    2018-19 NBA Season - New and improved!

    Agreed with everything but the contract to 8 teams part. Every now and again a small(er)-market team can stay competitive—see the Spurs from 2000 up to a couple years ago. That said, this ring-chasing-in-your-prime business needs to stop. As a Jazz fan, I get Karl Malone pulling a Ray Borque and going to the Lakers in his last year, as John Stockton had retired and Malone wasn’t winning a title in Utah by that point. But doing it in your prime just marginalizes teams that, due to their location/market size/overall general popularity, cannot attract big stars. The next CBA needs to put an end to the super team or else it’s going to be ugly. Of course, the next CBA negotiations (When are they set to happen again?) are going to be ugly as well.

    2019 NHL All-Star Game Uniforms Unveiled

    While the design is better than the design Black/Neon Green, it still looks rather devoid of life. I believe Adidas did something like this with some MLS teams a few years ago, using colorless (read: Black/Dark Gray) uniforms made out of recycled plastic as well. Does Adidas not have the ability to dye said material?

  13. It still remains a pipe dream, but I’d think it would be awesome to put a team in Sacramento, Las Vegas, or Salt Lake.

    I missed Thursday’s game pick, but given that you could probably count the number of people who picked the Chargers on two fingers, no loss this week.

  15. About the only way creamsicle and pewter would work is if the pewter had its warm (bronze, yellow-y) component removed and was made into a more neutral gunmetal gray or slightly blue slate gray (though I’m not sure what the exact definition of the color pewter is and whether it has to be warm). But even then, I’d keep it as an alternate. Perhaps the Buccaneers could use the darker orange that they wore between 1997-2013 (as I recall that it was darker than the creamsicle orange, as was the red). Anyways, as far the original flag logo was best as it had that more menacing character to it, and a full-fledged return to the previous set would more than suffice, as it is a genuinely good uniform, that, like the Bengals’ 1981-2003 set, could’ve been worn into perpetuity. Admittedly, the only thing I felt was missing from the previous set was just a tad more orange, but keeping in mind that this was a rare case where the team likely sought to distance themselves from their original look and came up with something that actually worked out, the lack of orange is understandable and I’m not sure where you’d put said orange on the previous set. (Maybe you could add an orange sleeve stripe on top of the black sleeve stripe? Flip the black and orange on the number outlines? I dunno.) Another alternative for the helmet logo would be to use a standalone skull and swords logo (with accompanying Brashier-esque stripes), as seen in this prototype (hopefully the link works if the image doesn’t pop up), though I can see why someone might see it as a bit generic. https://goo.gl/images/DoXpCB
