  1. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    A couple more unused finds: Apparently, when Adidas was designing the Sacramento Kings' previous uniform set, they were originally going to put the wordmarks in their proper places: the city name on the road and (presumably) the team name at home. This prompts the question of how they managed to screw it up on the final product. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-AUTHENTIC-2008-SACRAMENTO-KINGS-NBA-ADIDAS-SAMPLE-JERSEY-48-0-SEWN-NWT-/291746084639?hash=item43ed6bf71f%3Ag%3AIEsAAOSwa-dWpykz&nma=true&si=OS9Q%252FJRktLie%252FzipTLqzf7tef%252BU%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 Here's a prototype of the Bucks' prior uniform set. Not much different than the ones they actually wore, but the collar here is tri-color instead of two-tone. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VERY-UNUSUAL-SALESMAN-SAMPLE-MILWAUKEE-BUCKS-NBA-BASKETBALL-JERSEY-50-SEWN-ON-/182040744390?hash=item2a627951c6%3Ag%3AP84AAOSwKtVW1g8D&nma=true&si=OS9Q%252FJRktLie%252FzipTLqzf7tef%252BU%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

  3. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    Another amazing find:
  4. NFL in LA Uniform Speculation

    You're too kind. Now that Sterling is out of the pro sports business, Dean might honestly be the worst owner in sports.
  5. Unused Logos and Uniforms

    Interesting find. Maybe a Starter fashion jersey?
  6. 2016-17 NHL Uniform and Logo Changes

    That's easy. Go back to this... ...replace the khaki with athletic gold, and add an athletic gold alternate. Ideally, they'd bring back the "robo-pigeon" as the main crest too, but that will probably never happen.
  7. Do Uniforms Matter to Recruits?

    I'd understand the love for Penn State's uniforms if they still had the contrasting collar and trim. Without that, they're basically wearing practice jerseys.
  8. Unpopular Opinions

    Still one of my favorite NHL uniforms ever: Admittedly, the sock striping is terrible. But the sweater got way too much hate at the time. The striping looked nice, and the shoulder logo doubling as a football-style shoulder stripe was a brilliant idea.
  9. BP Jerseys in regular season games

    The Orioles did it against the Rays a few years ago.
  10. 2015-16 NBA Thread

    The Warriors have been full of themselves since they hired Mark Jackson. His arrogance clearly rubbed off on that team, even after he was fired. Most people just didn't notice it because the media was so busy shoving them down our throats as "the most loveable team ever."
  11. Players You Hate

    NBA: Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Karl Malone, the Warriors' entire current team (especially Draymond Green: a role player who talks trash as if he's prime Jordan, is the dirtiest player in the league by far, and is coddled by the league and refs) NFL: Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, Bill Romanowski, Cam Newton, David Boston, Jared Gaither, Hines Ward, Jay Cutler... I could go on. NHL: Brad Marchand, Zdeno Chara, Ryan Kesler, Corey Perry, James Neal, Mike Smith MLB: Derek Jeter, David Ortiz, Nomar Garciaparra, Manny Ramirez, David Eckstein, Milton Bradley
  12. Really unusual color schemes (that work)

    The color scheme is fine, but the way they used it back then was godawful. It looks like someone stole their jerseys and they had to borrow their opponents' road jerseys for the game.
  13. NBA Changes 2016-17 Season

    I don't think it's fair to say that tanking was the end of Hinkie's strategy. He was forced out of the Sixers before he could see his plan to completion. And let's be real, Bryan Colangelo is not going to have a better plan for the Sixers than Hinkie did. We all saw the moves he made in Toronto when his dad wasn't around to make him look good: drafting Bargnani; trading the farm for T.J. Ford and Rudy Gay; overpaying Bargs, Jason Kapono and Landry Fields; riding the treadmill of mediocrity every year despite insisting they weren't. In contrast, Hinkie has stockpiled young talent and given the Sixers a ton of flexibility, which will now be wasted on mediocre players and a desperate drive towards the 8th seed.
  14. NBA Changes 2016-17 Season

    It's mostly just ignorance on the part of fans, coaches and GMs who are still stuck in the old-school mentality. Steph Curry went 7th overall, Dirk went 9th, Kawhi Leonard went 15th, Steve Nash went 15th, Manu Ginobili was drafted in the second round, etc. In fairness, there are also terrible drafts like 2000 where even the top 5 have questionable talent. It's still better to secure the highest draft pick possible in order to have the most options, but the idea that there's no talent outside of the top five every year is stupid.
