  1. You know ... years ago I wished that the franchise picked a nickname a bit more local for Pawtucket. With this move, I hope they stick with something like the Worcester Red Sox with the current trend in MiLB nicknames. Heaven help us all with we have the Worcester Flying Lobster Rolls.

    Cleveland Browns re-do in the works for 2020?

    So should we just expect the Browns to go stripeless this year?

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    I guess we're starting to look forward to the 2018-19 season with the recent news of the Charlotte Hornets wearing the white version of their classic throwbacks next year. Just on a side note, it'll be interesting to see if the Hornets follow that up in 2019-20 with their purple throwback jerseys? Obviously that's just speculation. As far as other changes at this point, I am not sure if we've heard anything else. I would assume more teams will wear classic throwbacks and we'll see a new wave of community jerseys since apparently those will be a yearly change for some if not all teams?

    Favorite jersey number?

    I've always loved how the #2 looks in most number fonts, especially basketball and football. I always preferred wearing #6, #29 or #62.

    Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I like the crossover for markets that allow it.

    Thanks for the research I didn't want to do. That really illustrates my point well and I agree with your point on the influx of international players.

    I'd have to research this some for hard data (something I just don't want to do right now), but you really didn't see many players wear numbers 6-9, 16-19, 26-29, 36-39, 46-49, 56-99 in the late 70s to mid-90s it seems. Sure there are examples of players wearing numbers in that range during that time period, but it seemed that players wore the numbers the NCAA allowed 1-5, 10-15, 20-25, 30-35, 40-45, 50-55. It really wasn't until Shawn Bradley (#76) and Gheorge Muresan (#77) came into the NBA that players started going with those numbers. So there's your useless history lesson of the day.

    Man, if I was Vancouver I'd riot over this apparent rigged vote. They're good at that. #FlyingVForever

    Forgotten classic uniforms

    Well, the Hawks even had practically (different outlines) on the jerseys sandwiched in between those two ...
  12. That's lame, but at the same time I can appreciate it. I hate wearing shorts without pockets.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Great clapback! It still doesn't change my opinion on the feel of the jersey. The lack of stripes on the pants and trim on the jersey on top of the non-outlined numbers give the look of a practice jersey. It's too basic and IMO doesn't lend itself to a game day jersey.

    You can't tell me there's much difference between their game and practice jerseys.

    Logo/Uniform Soft Spot

    I have a soft spot for pretty much any team with royal blue -- but, especially double blue. I loved the Jazz's double blue look. Gorgeous.

  19. Well according to the Nike NBA systems we're getting a new statement jersey about every two seasons. Prepare to be disappointed again in 2020.

    Hornets Go Full Retro, Unveil Throwback Court

    I love the idea of throwback courts and I hope more teams adopt them in the future. Borrowing these from @kodrinsky, I'd love to see some of these throwback courts brought back ... And of course ...

    NBA Changes 2018-19

    Well with the accuracy of NBA Live and NBA 2K on jersey design -- I wouldn't put much to it until media day. On a side note ... the Spurs got their jerseys all wrong with last year's logo change. Slapping on the new simplified word mark on basically the same jersey while shrinking the numbers just looks sloppy. They should have used minimal collar stripes and matched the number font with the new team font. rant/

    I get that. But, still, teams like the Suns and Bucks went with original expansion jerseys and not ones they had the most success in during their anniversary years. I know it's a team choice, but I do love those black throwbacks so much better than the blue.

    If you're celebrating your 30th anniversary don't you think you should go with your original uniforms?
