    Report: Marlins In Teal Again in 2019

    Gonna probably wait till the Nike takeover is in effect to redesign the uniforms and logo and return to the old teal color scheme.

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Hey all! Decided to do a fun jersey series during this NBA offseason. These fun alternate jerseys I will be making will all reflect the team name and team name only, as you will see, quite literally. I will be moving down in order of division in each conference and in order of city name in each division. I will kick this series off with these three teams: Boston Celtics: The same look as the Celtics' mascot Brooklyn Nets: Quite literally the weaving of a basketball net. New York Knicks: Since many of you may not know what a Knick is, its short for Knickerbocker, which is an older term for a New Yorker. Thus, the retro vest and tie top and brown pants. More will be coming soon if y'all like this series idea! Template credit to therealpepman

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Sorry for the extremely extended break. I was out of the country for the better part of the past month and finally am putting a fitting end to this series. Let me know if y'all want me to try this kind of series again with a different league? Thanks for all of your CC and praise! Memphis Grizzlies: A gray bear hide (new to the Grizzlies color scheme), featuring the classic chewed up Grizzlies text and the newer number font... New Orleans Pelicans: Similar in design to the Hawks, but featuring a more ruffled and flat feather on the sleeves and the obvious gold San Antonio Spurs: It's a giant spur, what else is there to say? (No idea what it is with all these crotch based results )

    Non-sports logos that could be good sports logos?

    Sans text obviously

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    To start off the Southwest Division: Dallas Mavericks: Went with the old school cowboy look (Mavs badge and belt buckle included) Houston Rockets: I let my creativity and the 90s seep all over this uniform (no way it'd be legal though)

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Finally, wrapping up the Pacific Division: Phoenix Suns: Avoided using a photorealistic image to avoid similarities to the Heat jersey in this series. Sacramento Kings: A King always dresses appropriately (crown included but sword not included) Will close out this series with the Southwest Division soon!

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Was debating doing that, but realized 1) A clipper is the ship itself and 2) the admiral uniform would be a bit too similar to other uniforms in this series.

    Introducing: Los Angeles Clippers: Hard to make a jersey a Clipper, but ya know ship happens

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    After a little break, I give you the next team in this series: Los Angeles Lakers: Inspired by the look of the South Bay G-League Affiliate, the Lake is prominent, featuring the old Laker powder blue

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Sorry it took a little while, been busy this weekend, but here is the start of the Pacific Division with: Golden State Warriors: Used a greco-roman based chest plate and shorts for the armor design

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    As promised, here are the last two of the Northwest uniforms! Portland Trailblazers: Davy Crockett jackets anybody? Utah Jazz: Made it as fun and outlandish as the genre itself! Going to the Pacific next!

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    The Southwest Division has been started! Denver Nuggets: Giant gold nugget anyone? Minnesota Timberwolves: An NBA player in wolf's clothing... Oklahoma City Thunder: Accepted the challenge of trying to do it without lightning: pseudo-succeeded... Finishing the rest of the Northwest soon! Again, comments and CC encouraged!

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    NBA rules does not force teams to feature a uniform number on the front like the NFL, so its not necessary and I felt it would clutter the uniform more than it already is.

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    After hearing some CC for the Wizards jersey, I decided to redo the Wizards design, changing the coat design to look more crazy, reduced the color scheme down to just three, and extended the robe down to the pants. I believe this is a notable improvement and hope y'all do too!

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    The rest of the Southeast Division has been added right before the end of the holiday!: Charlotte Hornets: A hornet shape, wings and stinger included! Miami Heat: Flaming hot from the pants up (inspired by the Magic's City jersey) Washington Wizards: A wizard's robe, simple enough... Next up: the Western Conference!

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Damn you're making me regret not adding team shoes to this series. May add shoes in the end!

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Atlanta Hawks: Black hawk plumage covers this jersey and shooting sleeve "wings" serve as a fun extension to the base uniform

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    I know they do, but we're going with the Jurassic Park version of Raptors that the original logo and mascot are based off and everyone knows.

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Added is the rest of the Central Division: Detroit Pistons: A literal Piston, because a car isn't literal enough... Indiana Pacers: Instead of going with a pace car, I went with the checkered flag design since a Pacer isn't a literal thing. Milwaukee Bucks: Deer fur. Unlike the Bulls, antlers are a bit too large to fit on a headband unfortunately... Added Bonus: A freebie from the Southwest Division, since I accidentally made it out of order... Orlando Magic: Who doesn't love a good magician (featuring a fun jacket design and cape)!

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Decided to finish up today (with work during the week eating up more time) with two more unique ones from the Central Division: Chicago Bulls: Red bull fur texturing, but featuring the wordmarks, logos, and numbering as "branded on". I also added an optional/extension headband, where the headband literally has bull horns on it, adding more to the gimmick. Cleveland Cavaliers: A yellow cavalier uniform with a holster for a sword (down the side of one pant leg) The rest of the Central soon to come...

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Following the previous three are the last two in the Atlantic Division: Philadelphia 76ers: Since a 76er is not a literal thing/person, I used a colonial 18th century suit design, similar to that on the dribbling Ben Franklin logo. Toronto Raptors: Self-explanatory CC and comments are welcome! Next Up: Central Division

    What’s the worst mlb logo

    PADRES no doubt. It is about the most forgettable look in all of US pro sports period (the Hurricanes would be a close second). The navy and white color scheme is boring as all hell and should only be used by the Yankees and Tigers (considering they're old and classic teams with classic identities). At least the Marlins, Brewers, and Rockies all have unique colors. Their uniforms are inconsistent and unmemorable, their logo is a freaking cap logo, and they have a great former logo in the swinging friar. While the Padres have never had a memorable look, they at least had different colors in the past. Now, its just inexcusable...

    NHL 2018-19

    It's now official: the St Louis Blues will play at the Enterprise Center in 2018. Based on the rendering, it also looks like the branding/ads in the front facade may be removed as well. New: Old:

    NFL 2018 changes

    For sure. The Reebok length was damn near perfect. Also I am still bugged by the lack of a number outline on the Jags uniforms. Would literally make the set 10x better if there was a black outline and teal outline around the numbers on the teal and black jerseys, respectively.

    NFL 2018 changes

    That's good news to say the least. I liked that Lions set.
