  1. Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

    Wow, even I had forgotten that happened. An odd random thing about AK is that even though he was a 2000's guy, his "right" uniform to me is the mountains set by far. Even the double blues don't look as right. Also, I'm betting his number will be the next hanging in the Jazz rafters at this point.
  2. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Knicks (p. 3)

    There's something about the "S" in "NETS" that seems off somehow. It just looks a bit awkward for some reason. However, the rest of the concept is very, very nice. The net pattern design looks great in the updated colors. Good work once again!
  3. NHL 2017-18

    That Belleville set is great, but I still love this Senators set just above the heritages: In my perfect world, I'd take this set with the black heritage sweaters as the third. Best of both worlds.
  4. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Knicks (p. 3)

    Three consecutive grand slams right here. Stunning work. That Clippers one especially is the best Clippers concept I've ever seen.
  5. Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Mavs definitely have no excuse now that Minnesota seems to be content where they are. The door's wide open and I sure hope they jump in next season.

    Somehow with the swoosh, they look even more like an epitome of 2001 than they already had.
  7. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    Now that I see it for real on a player, this is definitely a massive upgrade. The wordmark is still a terrible mess, but I'm really digging everything else. And obviously it's great that the black is gone, but I'm even more thrilled that neither set has that clunky "LAC" logo on the chest.
  8. Los Angeles Clippers New Uniforms

    That looks better, if that's it. Still not great, but a much more pleasing sight than the former. And yay for no more pool noodles!
  9. Minnesota Timberwolves

    Oh boy. This looks like some weird, bad, randomly-nautical attempt at a Mavericks alt. But it's the Wolves. This would be okay-at-best for a San Diego expansion team, but I see no rhyme or reason to it being for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It just doesn't make sense.
  10. Phoenix Suns New Uniforms

    The Suns are okay, but could have been a lot better. They'd have been vastly improved if the wordmarks and numbers were the same color (and the wordmark not beveled). The butt stripe shouldn't be a thing, either. The Pelicans look much better with the new wordmark. That's a bigger improvement than I expected.

    If the mountain throwbacks aren't one of those, I'm rioting.
  12. Nuggets unveil new uniforms*

    Another thing that's bugging me is that from a distance, the powder and gold on the side panels is bleeding together and looks like this random stripe of a sagey green or something. That does not look good.
  13. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I was critiquing last year's set (which now seems to remain current), not the video game. To each their own there on the colors my friend, but I've just been one who's never warmed up to the navy. It's never looked as right as purple does to me. *shrug*
  14. NBA Changes 2017-18

    My guess is sales. Which I always think is dumb, given Jazz fans still buy a good amount of purple gear and I don't think it ever would have been or was a problem. But that's my best guess. Hard to believe they've been a navy team for almost 13 years now....
  15. NBA Changes 2017-18

    They have a couple of pros, but too many cons for me to have ever fully gotten on board with them. Pros: - Music note wordmark and logos - Number font Cons: - Navy and not purple - Since they do insist on navy, the green is WAY too dark and has poor contrast. Should be Kelly or even teal - side panels "cut to same degree as the ZZ's" or whatever look really corny and over-modernized - besides that, the tri-color side panel is too thick and always looked better as a thinner trim - shoulder trim and collar are mismatched - the whole concept just looks awkward altogether being classic a throwback idea thrown into a blender with a modern design. If they want to go throwback (which they should and was always a good thing), they need to keep it to a more classic design to really look the part (which they don't).
  16. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Just as I expected. Same crap set with a swoosh and sponsor.
  17. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Just over here waiting for the Jazz to say anything else...
  18. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I've never been to Oakland, so I assume "The Town" is a local thing. But I honestly think of the movie The Town instantly when I hear that, and thus think of Boston instead. That'll take some getting used to. Also very interesting that they're apparently going with the white 70's-80's version as thier throwback. Not a bad one at all - it at least does the "text and circle" bit a whole lot better than the current does - but I too would've preferred Run TMC if they wanted a white set to throwback to.
  19. NBA Changes 2017-18

    If so, then a big "yes!" to most of them. I think we all know which ones the Hornets and Heat are going for, I'd bet Suns are going inaugural for thier 50th, and the Hawks, Bucks, and Pacers have some great possibilities. The only one I'm not that excited about is the Warriors, only because I'd be shocked if it weren't the "City" set and I'd much rather see the 70's or Run TMC set at this point.
  20. Lights Out's NBA 2017: Knicks (p. 3)

    A lot of these designs are very well thought out. I'm really not a fan at all of unofficial nicknames being on professional uniforms, but beyond the usage of such, the designs of the uniforms themselves are sharp with a great sense of conceptualization. Each set definitely boasts good features that would set themselves apart from each other team in the league and provides instantaneous recognition. Great job there. A quick comment on Denver: you're really, really, really close. The design, typeface, and overall concept are definitely there. But I'm just not feeling the colors. The golds are fine, but If I may be frank, the dark sage-ish gray (?) is a bit of an ugly color and looks almost like smog when utilized on the skyline. I would explore some different color options there. Even if it were simply navy, the design is so strong and well done that it will work just fine.
  21. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Rounded collar again? Sweet if that's the case! And it's hard to tell if that's the new wordmark or not. Either way, it doesn't look so far like they're straying too much, which is good.
  22. NBA Changes 2017-18

    I hadn't had a chance to listen to the interview yet, that's some interesting stuff! "Pushing the envelope" concerns me a little, but that could very well just mean the gradient alt. I'm still crossing fingers that the main set undergoes changes, even if they're just tweaks. A more unified collar and shoulder trim design, at the very least, would be very welcome.
  23. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Still no date for the Jazz, just "soon":
  24. The fauxback pig is a really great logo, but "Barbecue" is weird and as mentioned, they look almost like Orioles clones rather than Phillies affiliates. They should consider taking the fauxback pig and making an occasional alternate cap in thier current colors out of it. It's too good a logo to use just once.
