  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Interesting that the Mavs release refers to the third and fourth uniforms as Statement and City Editions, respectively. I remember seeing Statement in place of Athlete's Mindset somewhere yesterday, but City in place of Community-Inspired seems new. I originally didn't mind new terminology, but if it's not going to be consistent then let's just go back to home, away, alternate, etc.
  2. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Nets (p. 3)

    Matched the collar and armhole trim, matched the wordmark and numeral color, established continuity between the side panels of the jerseys and shorts....these are outstanding. That black fauxback is absolutely gorgeous as well. Awesome work!
  3. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    That's my biggest complaint with this set -- the inline on the wordmark's typeface just doesn't look right. I don't like the butt stripe, but I don't mind it so much either. The subtle side panels are a nice touch, the color palette sans black really pops and also reminds me less of EA Sports, and the Icon Edition looks especially sharp.

    Overall, these Spurs uniforms just feel half-baked to me....the wordmarks are simplified, but the numerals are busy....the side panels are simple, the collar and armhole trim are busy. I feel like a definitive shift one way or the other would look much better just in terms of cohesion, though I'd obviously much prefer them taking the truly simplified route.

    http://www.nba.com/spurs/nike Weird that the rendering on the graphics here show the Spurs jerseys without inner strokes on the numerals that match the color of the jersey. The actual pictures of the uniforms above suggest otherwise, but I think I'd really prefer the numerals in the rendering.

    Almost looks like the bottom of the side panels on the new shorts might still be curved -- or at least still angled somehow and adjusted to the new template?

    While they might not be objectively the worst uniforms in the League, I'm willing to say that the Houston Rockets are now my least favorite uniforms in the League. It's a look that's been around since 2003, complete with a dated wordmark, a mismatched and unoriginal numeral font, inconsistent drop shadowing, an unexciting color palette, such minor tweaks that their Nike updates look like cheap knockoffs of their Adidas predecessors, virtually nothing pertaining exclusively to Houston nor rockets, and all this despite clear paths towards upgrades design ('90s color palette despite my hatred for yellow, recent black alternates, etc.). These are just so bad.
  8. Phoenix Suns New Uniforms

    an exciting and upgraded color scheme with reckless design elements >>> a boring and downgraded color scheme with conservative design elements
  9. Phoenix Suns New Uniforms

    Is the numeral stroke gray on the Icon Edition? Thought it was white at first glance, but that close-up seems to suggest otherwise. Huh.
  10. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Ah, darn....I was hoping Josh Jackson was going to go with #99 like he did in Summer League.
  11. Phoenix Suns New Uniforms

    I don't like the lower-arched wordmark, the contrasting-colored wordmark and numerals, nor the flipped collar and armhole trim, and the shorts design is a bit unnecessarily busy, but it's still an upgrade over their previous set because these colors look INCRED.
  12. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Looks like the Hawks have either full collar trim or no collar trim at all based on the blurred background of that Terrence Ross screenshot. Either way would be an upgrade.
  13. NBA Changes 2017-18

    The Suns' color palette looks so much better with purple instead of black. I'll wait until we see the actual uniforms, but those numbers could be disastrous if accurate. The shorts could be interesting too, but the collar and armhole trim patterns being flipped already irk me.
  14. Minnesota Timberwolves

    The only good thing I will say about these is that I really like the 'MINNESOTA' script on the Icon Edition -- the narrow characters look significantly better than the wide characters. The 'WOLVES' script isn't terrible, but looks noticeably more awkward next to that 'MINNESOTA' script.

    The butt stripe on that Clippers uniform is disappointing, but the half-red and half-blue is fun at least.
