    NBA Changes 2018-19

    The Lakers are debuting their Magic “tribute” uniforms in tonight’s nationally televised game against the Blazers. Really wish they weren’t debuting them against my Blazers, but whaddya gonna do.

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    They unveiled last year’s during the first few days of December, so I’m guessing they’ll probably do the same this year. I agree though, it does seem a bit late, especially since Navy’s uniforms for this year’s game were unveiled back in October.

    Man, it’s really too bad this City-themed court concept for the Thunder isn’t real:

    I’m not a huge fan of the shorts, and the rainbow would look much better if it was solid instead of being made up of thin lines, but this is still a really nice look overall. Much better than their regular set.

    These don’t look quite as bad as I was expecting, but they’re still a mess IMO.
  6. That sounds awful. The solid white stripe on the navy pants would stick out like a sore thumb with the navy and yellow color scheme of the CR helmets and jerseys.
  7. No they didn’t, they wore their normal reds with the pewter pants.

    Same for the Nuggets.

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I found myself warming up to them quite a bit as the game went on tonight. I thought the two-tone effect looked really sharp, and the thin red sash is a nice enough design element and one that ties into their classic look. That said, I did find the abrupt transition from black to dark grey on the player’s right side of the jerseys and shorts to be a bit odd without the red separating it. Overall, though, I thought it was a pretty solid look. It’s certainly not in the top tier of this year’s City edition uniforms, but it’s firmly in the middle, and maybe even cracking the top 1/3 IMO. Last year’s plaid set was definitely better and much more inspired, so if given the option I would’ve preferred them just asking for an exemption and re-using them again this year, but I’m mostly okay with this new set. I’m hopeful that next year’s will return to something more inspired, though. And I will say, based on the mockup of the red Earned set, I think those will end up looking quite good and better than these ones.

    The MLS Store is having a jersey blowout sale for all teams, including both the 2017 jerseys and this season’s new jerseys. https://www.mlsstore.com/jerseys/d-47221982+z-9744807-1425885315?os=1

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    Michigan State/Ohio State is absolutely gorgeous. I love this white/green/white combo for the Spartans, and the Buckeyes’ road uniforms always look good.

    Yep, they looked really sharp in action, especially with the contrasting blue accessories. As far as grey alternate uniforms go, this is about as good as it gets: Now I still think these are a downgrade from last season’s ‘Phila’ script set, but they’re still really solid and not that far off from those.

    The Sixers made a small adjustment to the liberty bell logo they’re using at center court when wearing the City uniforms, changing the outlines to blue/grey/red with equal weights to better match the trim on this year’s City uniforms: Last year the bell logo had a thin white stroke on the outside, a thick blue stroke in the middle, and a thin red stroke on the inside:

    They do, or at least they will. Only about a third of them are available as of now, though: https://store.nba.com/jackets-2018-city-edition/d-1250843026+c-3489194172+z-9-361372067

    I’m assuming you’re joking, but that’s just a long sleeve fan t-shirt that’s part of the City edition collections. There’s one for every team (some are already available on Fanatics and the NBA Store). I haven’t been able to find the Thunder’s, but here’s a couple that are already available: What I posted earlier are the official on-court City edition shooting shirts, not these. Teal was wrong about these being the actual warmups.

    MLS Kits 2019

    I’m still expecting the Timbers to officially swap out the lime green on their primary logo with gold at some point (hopefully by next season??), which would also cause their official version of the MLS badge to change as well. I’ve speculated in the past that the reason they haven’t made the switch to gold full time yet is that the league might have a rule about how often a team can change their primary logo. They changed their primary logo from the version with the team name to the version without it back in 2015, so if there’s, say, a five year rule about changing primary logos, then the change might not become official for a couple more years.

    Yes, but the league must have wanted to avoid the red-green colorblind issue, so they’re having the Blazers wear their normal whites that day instead.

    Here’s all of the Christmas Day matchups: The teams that made the playoffs last year and are playing on Christmas are debuting their Earned sets that day (with the exception of the Thunder and Blazers because of color contrast issues with their opponents). The Knicks and Lakers are likely wearing their City sets because Nike, the league, and both teams wanted to at least showcase the new City sets on Christmas Day rather than just wearing their “regular” uniforms or even their Statement sets. Also, since LockerVision still has all of the Earned editions labeled as white, here’s the actual color matchups of all of the Christmas games: Knicks (navy City) vs. Bucks (grey Earned) Rockets (red Earned) vs. Thunder (navy Statement) Celtics (green Earned) vs. 76ers (white Earned) Warriors (yellow Earned) vs. Lakers (purple City) Jazz (green Earned) vs. Blazers (white Association)

    College Football uniforms- 2018

    The Ducks are going back to the chrome/white/white look for tomorrow’s game at Utah: This’ll be their third time wearing this exact combo this season, and four out of four road games wearing the white jerseys and pants together. I was really hoping they’d at least switch out the helmets again like they did for the Arizona game, except I would’ve liked to have seen the yellow lids this time around. Alas, they seem pretty set on sticking to the four combos that were unveiled back in August, with the exception of last week’s special Jumpman uniforms and the black/white/white look that was worn two weeks ago.

    Here’s a look at some of the City Edition warmups: All 30 of them can be seen on Fanatics and/or the NBA Store. I like the bigger logos on the chest of this year’s versions, but overall last year’s City warmups were better IMO since the side panels incorporated some of the designs from the actual uniforms.

    This is pretty cool from the Blazers:

    Agreed, it’s an absolute mess. Decent idea at best, but pretty terrible execution. I will say I like the use of the Destination Cleveland wordmark, but that’s about it.
  23. The Lakers are wearing their :censored:ty purple set at home again tonight, this time with black accessories (purple socks and tights still, though): Also, in case it’s not clear from that last picture, LeBron is wearing a headband tonight: Kind of weird to see him in a headband again after not wearing one for the past few years.

    Here’s the official reveal of the Blazers’ new City set: I’m not completely sure how I feel about these yet. I think they’re pretty solid overall, and I actually like the two-tone effect with the red sash acting as the dividing line. But last year’s Plaid set was so much more inspired, and this just feels somewhat lazy and bland in comparison. It’s not bad, but they could’ve done so much more with it. Also, the Biofreeze ad patch looks particularly bad with this set, as both the white and green clash badly with the black/dark grey and red color scheme of the uniform:
