  1. Pistons Logo Change

    I actually really like the new DP logo even though I normally only like monograms for just the city. I think it's a nice and simple design that goes well with their classic, simple uniforms and colors. The D with the ball going through it is ass.
  2. Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

    Still a very generic feel and they opt out of navy at home for some reason instead of just fully embracing and wine & gold color scheme. These won't last any longer than the last two sets.

    Pants without some sort of stripe never works for me. Those gold pants are duds without a stripe, looks like a modern college football design. The bright yellow version looks so much better, even though I like both color schemes.
  4. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I think they are great as an alternate, but I didn't like how they wore them through the whole playoffs. But I think that might be the more popular opinion.

    How is this superior? Looks like the only difference is the pants and the stripeless gold is far worse than the whites IMO. I have very little issue with the St. Louis look as long as they aren't monochrome blue.
  6. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Hawks pattern doesn't bother me. Their colors and alternate logos don't thrill me but the worst part of their identity is when they choose to mismatch jerseys and shorts.

    Sorry to play another round of "is that unpopular?" but IS THAT UNPOPULAR?
  8. Indiana Pacers New Uniforms, Alternate Logos

    Still hate the primary logo for being boring and not symbolizing Indiana, BUT the new jerseys are awesome. A unique wordmark for the NBA and I love the side-panels. I get the font/spacing criticisms but this may be the best they've ever looked. EDIT: The one thing that kinda bothers me is a one-color collar. Always seems cheap for some reason. And further confirmation that this Nike bull :censored: on the back-arm piping is a big mistake. Why create a template that forces limitations on EVERY team?
  9. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Red with a bright accent, modern, mostly simple, uses a shortened name, basically :censored:ty. So that's 5 things in common.
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The shame of it is that the white jersey is much better balanced and overall more appeasing to my eye, PROVING (to me at least) that they really need to just drop it.
  11. NBA Changes 2017-18

    It's just so damn bland. There's no identity here. At least with the last jersey, even if you found it boring, there were stripes that tied it together. This has nothing and doesn't seem attached to the team's past aside from colors and the name. And if they are in fact going to CAVS and dropping Cavaliers again... UGH.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I don't think I like anything about this new set based on the leak. -I've always been against the navy and black while using the bright gold -The design reminds me of the Hawks and seems modern/bland -CAVS on the belt? THE HOOK C IS PERFECT FOR A BUCKLE UGH -The whole thing feels like a re-invention of the wheel when we have several solid identities to choose from and build with -Somehow it's more boring than the current look -They've basically abandoned the throwback classic look idea to go back to being modern except looking worse than the last two sets But maybe it'll look better in HD.

    I can totally understand the argument that the Falcons uniforms are a dated mess, even though they don't bother me all that much. The logo, however, is a clear a upgrade and proper modernization. They don't need to change it, I find it so much less dated than the old logo. I'd put anybody clinging to it in nearly the same category as anyone that prefers the old Arizona Cardinals logo.
  14. Best decade of sports uniforms? (redux)

    Pacers are boring looking now but look sharp. The pinstripes were just plain ugly IMO. The Grizzlies have a very solid if generic look but I don't understand how someone could arrive at them being the worst in the league.
  15. Best decade of sports uniforms? (redux)

    We disagree heavily on this. Kings - look clownish here, current identity is beautiful Heat - solid look but current uniforms are better Suns - IMO overrated look, but still maybe better than current Hawks - their current look confuses me, but this 90s one doesn't make my top 3 Hawks jerseys Indiana - hate their pinstripes; the only pinstripes I've ever liked in basketball are the current Magic and maybe Charlotte; current is plain but better Bulls - the red on black stripes just feels dated and gross to me; current is much better, though I like the script Chicago jerseys Bucks - god awful; current looks isn't perfect but one of their best I'll add as a sidenote, it's really tough for me to get behind the 2000s for the NFL or NBA because of the shiny materials they used that looked terrible.
