    NBA Changes 2018-19

    "Earned. Not given." Coming February 2019, new NBA Given jerseys, for the 14 teams who didn't make the playoffs.

    Still honestly prefer a million crazy city jerseys to sleeves.

    Your Uniform of Nostalgia

    Growing up in Australia, those Tampa Bay uniforms were the first NFL uniforms I ever saw thanks to brief coverage of the Super Bowl. I was 9 years old, I had a notebook where I would sketch uniforms in (mostly AFL and ODI cricket uniforms, because, Australia) and I remember drawing those pretty vividly because pewter was like a new colour to me. When I see those, I think of drawing them, and I think of the simpler times of early childhood.

    The Hollywood Nights alt didn't work for me at all in practice. The yellow striping looked tacky and mismatched on a black jersey with a purple wordmark. The black mamba city jersey last year was a better black alternate uniform for the Lakers. So was this old jersey Kobe wore on the cover of Slam: http://slammagazine.wikia.com/wiki/SLAM_74?file=SLAM74.jpg Along with the pinstripes, they're all better than the Hollywood Nights alt in my view.

    Purple pinstripes uni is better than the old Adidas sleeved black alternate.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Their point was Jacksonville was inspired by the broader philosophy of traditional uniforms being simplistic. The specifics of what Jacksonville got right or wrong is irrelevant. Those examples work fine.

    Playing the Rams in Madden and think the color rush helmet and yellow pants teamed with the white jersey is their best possible current combination. If they just changed the gold trim to yellow they'd be perfect.
  8. I take back everything I said about Jacksonville now that they wearing teal pants. I with Tampa would wear red pants too.

    Bucs look better than this.

    Forgotten classic uniforms

    I prefer the current Penguins logo but the RoboPenguin era jerseys were better. They have a simplified, consistent striping pattern. What they're wearing today might match the Lemieux era but it's to a fault. No team in 2018 would choose to look like that, with the mismatched sleeves and that ugly yellow hem stripe on the white jersey.

    2018 NBA Concepts

    Thanks for the kinds of words! Here are #10 and #11 #10 LA Clippers #11 Dallas Mavericks I think you can see what I am doing with both of these teams. I wanted to do something different for both of them but I found myself recreating their current jerseys anyway (or, in the case of the Clippers, their previous sets). Obviously a few changes. I think the Clippers really need to embrace powder blue; and with Dallas, I just updated the font to something that says 'Dallas' a little more (sort of like with Toronto, that means something a little bolder/thicker),

    Noted. Edited with a smaller wordmark, created a little more space between it and the side panel. Here is #8, Toronto Raptors And #9, Portland Trail Blazers I wanted to do Toronto in purple, however, the home whites looked really off, at least without some tweaking, so I "settled" for their All-Canadian red/black look which they rock pretty well. Added silver to differentiate them from the Bulls and Blazers, while hopefully the black keeps looking apart from Houston as well. I brought back the pinstripes (maybe also too Houston-y?) and the arching nameplate because I like those Barney Dinosaur elements, they keep their identity unique. And I altered their wordmark to a bolder font because what they're wearing now seems a little placeholder-y to me. Portland, I just based their look off of their amazing statement jersey. Remove the silver and lowed the name to appear under the number (just 'cause I think the back of the jersey looks little plain).

    2018 NBA Concepts

    And here are two more concepts while I am up. #6 Houston Rockets While I am a major fan of the Rockets re-incorporating yellow back into their identity, I feel Atlanta now "own" those colours so to speak, and my only idea for Houston in yellow is either the 94-95 Championship jerseys or a home-and-road version of their 2009 alternate. So I thought I would try and make red and silver really work for them because I do love those colours. I wanted to bring back the Steve Francis era pinstripes too because I loved those. #7 Brooklyn Nets Much like the Rockets, this is a merge of the Nets previous identities. I love their sleeved alternates and their Statement jersey; I love the old ABA Nets look done in black & white so that's what I went with, only replacing the stars with the old net pattern. It's not a unique design, I've seen it before, but I am big fan, I think it's the obvious move the team should make.

    Thanks for the feedback. I've edited Miami so hopefully the front number and wordmark appear more aligned and symmetrical. I also added a white stripe to the roads. I've also altered the font on the Warriors, removed the navy and hopefully made it look a little less cluttered and neater. And for fun, here is a Miami Vice rebrand for the Heat
