  1. 2018 MLS Kits

    MLS used to be my favorite looking league in NA sports. This year Adidas really screwed the pooch.
  2. NBA Changes 2018-19

    Someone please correct me if I am wrong, but the only new NBA jerseys next year will be a new City (4th jersey) for every team, right? + any teams that do a uniform overhaul to their Icon and Association (Am I doing this naming convention right?). & if I am correct, does that mean every team won’t have stupid calendar restrictions on when they can wear a jersey? Because that was my biggest complaint of Nike this year, was teams only being able to wear 2 of the 4 jerseys for a 1/3 of the season. That way my Thunder should be able to wear their Statement jersey on opening night next year..

    Also, it appears to me that the "Thunder" script is bigger. It could just be EA's graphics, though.

    Additional confirmation from an OKC scribe that the Thunder are dropping the Sunset "OKC" alternate. Additionally, looks like the Thunder are adding two alternates next year to complement their white home and Oklahoma blue away.
  5. Oklahoma City Thunder Nike Uniform Concept

    I agree with @BenD on extending the pattern to full-length on the jerseys and shorts. Also, this is well on its way to the best Thunder concept that I've seen on the web.

    According to local sports giant Berry Tramel, the Thunder are dropping the sunset orange alternates next year. This is interesting when looking at OKC's jersey lineup below, as the navy vertical wordmark alternate was retired before this season and the white sleeved alternate will be shelved after the Nike takeover. So, if OKC is dropping the orange alternate as well, that means OKC will be down to the home white and oklahoma blue away. Unless OKC is changing their jerseys with Nike? Perhaps @Conrad. can confirm?

    The OKC Thunder are going with the white sleeved jerseys for Game 1 tonight, making it 7 home games in a row. For the season, OKC is 8-0 in the sleeves. So, superstition may be at work here, along with the aforementioned preference of the players.
  8. NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

    So the Thunder have worn their white sleeved jerseys for the last 6 consecutive home games. As an avid follower of the team, and as a uniform lover, I asked a few beat writers on Twitter for the reason. One got back to me and said that it has been the players' decision to wear them. They supposedly like them. KD commented a few years ago after OKC wore the blue sleeved Christmas jerseys that he liked the sleeves. I remember him saying that it was a matter of preference and that some liked the sleeves and others did not (I believe his answer was to a question about LeBron criticizing the sleeved jerseys). Under new coach Billy Donovan, the team has had a noticeable change in their uniform rotation. Former coach Scott Brooks seemed to be a big advocate of tradition, as the team only wore their navy alternate and white sleeved jersey on the league-mandated scheduled dates. He mostly preferred the team in their standard home whites and away blues. However, under Billy, the team has worn the white sleeved jersey often at home, and seem to wear the new Sunset alternates at an abnormal clip too. I believe at the beginning of the year, the team scheduled to wear the orange jerseys only on Sunday home games and the white sleeved uni's 4 times. So, Billy D might give the players more discretion in the playoffs. Don't be surprised if the team wears the white sleeved alternate or the orange Sunset alternate during the playoffs. Under Scott Brooks, the team never wore anything but their standard home and away uniforms. Interesting development to watch for those that care. For those that don't, carry on...

    My swingman Durant just came in the mail today, and I've got to say -- I love it. The new material gives it a kit-feel to it; it feels like a sleeveless tshirt.

    Does anybody have any speculation as to what OKC's new planned alternate will be? I didn't ask if anyone has any "news" or w/e because obviously it would be posted if so. What I'm mostly adding on to is from the conversation with HOU about the different alternate designations, and what these would mean for OKC. Following this team since its inception, they do things differently. Everyone thought an orange OKC alt was coming in 2012, but a vertical Thunder navy blue jersey was debuted instead. The FO's MO is to always do things, "their way."
  11. Unpopular Opinions

    This will probably make me look dumb, but I actually really like the Charlotte Bobcats current navy away jerseys. I cannot think of a rational explanation as to why, other than I just really like them. I know they are rip-offs of the Dallas Mavs set, but for some reason they look better than Dallas' set to me. *ducks from trash being thrown at him*
