  1. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Knicks (p. 3)

    The Rockets' Association and Icon uniforms are a fresh new take on their classic uniforms from the Hakeem era. Their community-inspired alternate features the "Clutch City" nickname across the front instead of the team or city name. Their athlete-inspired alternate is an updated version of their black "Space City" alternate uniform from last season. The Heat's Association and Icon uniforms are inspired by their "Legacy" alternate uniform from the past couple seasons, albeit with a new typeface and color scheme that better suits Miami. The community-inspired alternate pays tribute to South Beach, where LeBron famously decided to "take his talents to" in 2010. The athlete-inspired alternate is a modernized take on the Floridians of the ABA, whom the Heat have thrown back to multiple times.
  2. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    The white jersey uses Adidas' new TechFit Flex Stripe template. The grey jersey appears to use the old Climacool miCheckdown template, which Adidas no longer offers. Regardless, both are better than the super-stretchy material that Adidas forces on their marquee programs.
  3. The Mad Scientist's NBA

    That looks a lot better. I like what you did with the Pacers. The Sonics... not so much. The logos are nice but the uniforms are too sparse.
  4. The Mad Scientist's NBA

    The Suns look nice, but the orange alternate needs more white in it for contrast. Maybe you should make the sunbursts on the jersey and shorts white with purple outlines instead of orange with purple outlines. As for the Bucks: you misspelled the city name. Other than that, it looks good, although the tan on the side stripes looks awkward. Also, the wordmark and numbers on the purple alternate are tough to read.
  5. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    Furthermore, if this was all to get a stadium built in San Diego, Deano made it nearly impossible for that to happen by pissing off the taxpayers, local government, and his fellow owners. If the Spanos family were ever interested in building a stadium in San Diego, they'd have abandoned their downtown plans that nobody else wanted and agreed to build one in Mission Valley. Their refusal to compromise speaks volumes.
  6. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    There were tarps covering up whole empty sections and the place still looked half-empty.
  7. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Knicks (p. 3)

    The new logo I've given the Nets is actually just a repurposed Adidas T-shirt design.
  8. Los Angeles Chargers Brand Discussion

    The league is just floating that story in the hopes that it will make the Chargers look less pathetic while they're playing in a tiny half-empty soccer stadium. Instead of admitting the reality that LA doesn't want the Chargers and the Spanos family are a complete joke, they're trying to rebrand it to make the Chargers look like misunderstood trendsetters. It's not going to work, but I can't blame them for trying.
  9. 2017 NFL Season

    It's just satisfying seeing all of Dean's bull :censored: get exposed. For years, he insisted that a significant percentage of the Chargers' fanbase came from LA. If that was the case, they would be able to fill a 30,000-seat soccer stadium, no sweat. The TV ratings for the game in San Diego were significantly higher than they were in LA, and that was after Dean ripped the team out of town! With each new embarrassment, the Spanii look like bigger idiots. And they deserve every bit of it and then some. You just know Goodell and the owners are secretly pissed at how bad this family of morons are for the image of the league in the #2 media market.
  10. 2017 NFL Season

    Loving every second of the Chargers' humiliation. Since they couldn't get their real fans a Super Bowl before they left, this is the next best thing.
  11. NFL 2017 changes?

    Nebraska called. They want their jerseys back.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I really don't understand why people are mourning the loss of the Suns' previous uniform set. IMO, it was the worst in the entire league. I can't decide which element looked ugliest together: the half-assed streaking lines across the front of the jersey, the sublimated streaking lines in the wordmarks, the butt stripe (I know the new uniforms have one as well, but it's actually integrated into the design), or the overly detailed suns/wings on the shorts that didn't match any other aspect of their identity. Some of these elements could have looked nice on their own in a different context, but together, they didn't work at all. Then there was the jumbled mess that was their color scheme. You can tell they scrambled to change the road uniform from black to purple at the last minute to appease angry fans, because purple didn't appear anywhere else in their whole identity. Their new look isn't perfect, but at least there's visual consistency. It actually looks like there was a purpose to the design, instead of a design-by-committee mess that tried to please everyone at once. Hopefully over the next few years, the Raptors, Wolves, Rockets, Thunder and Mavs will take a cue from the Suns and change their butt-ugly looks. Especially the Mavs, who have sorely needed a change for 16 years now.
  13. Phoenix Suns New Uniforms

    Except they've worn an orange-dominant wordmark on their home jerseys for most of their history. The '90s and 2000s sets were the outliers, not the norm.
  14. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    NBA reporter, RE: the Clippers' uniforms.
  15. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Knicks (p. 3)

    The white alternate uniform is inspired by the Los Angeles flag.
  16. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I do think the Mavs' uniforms are slightly improved by Nike's template, but still... it's just such an ugly and awkward design. I get why people say it's dated, but if we're being honest, it was just as ugly in 2001 as it is today.
  17. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    I'm pretty sure I read a few weeks ago that they've backed off of the whole "LA instead of Los Angeles" thing.
  18. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Hate to say it, but the Spurs really screwed up here. The new wordmark sticks out like a sore thumb. They needed to either adjust the wordmark or the uniform design in order to match better. It's a shame, because the set they just ditched was my favorite in the entire league.
  19. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    They're not bad, but I wish the city name was on the road jersey.
  20. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Knicks (p. 3)

  21. Minnesota Timberwolves

    But... they didn't try something new. They took the Wizards' uniforms and recolored them in the Mavs' color scheme. It fails on every conceivable level.
  22. Phoenix Suns New Uniforms

    The Suns' new look is a big upgrade. In fact, I think it's already their second-greatest look in franchise history, behind only the Barkley-era uniforms.
