    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?

    Luckily they won't as long as the Celts and Lakers don't meet in the playoffs. Both their regular season games are slated to be green vs. gold.

    With what's been beaten to death in the Lakers thread already ... the alternate as an alternate isn't the worst jersey ever, but there's nothing about it that truly represents Magic.

    Seattle NHL Brand Discussion

    As much as I'd love the Seattle Kraken, I actually really like the Seattle Sockeyes. It'd go with the red it seems the expansion group has already adopted as the primary color and it's not that bad of a name that's fairly unique to the area.

    NFL 2018 changes

    Um, I really like this look as well. I do agree with @BringBackTheVet ... the glossy helmet clashes with the uniforms. But, I really like that black/black/teal look -- for me that's a traditional modern look.

    NFL 2018 changes

    I'd say mainly the piping. It was too inconsistent from player to player.
  8. And, the jersey doesn't have to be very fancy. I think the template with the current Statement purple jersey with the sublimated stars would work perfectly -- that's Showtime. And, Magic was Showtime.
  9. I actually always loved those jerseys, except for these renditions ... #DeathToSleevedJerseys

    Are you counting the pink ones too?

    I'm trying to like them, even for a one year thing. I just can't. Out of curiosity, does anyone know what legend will be honored next year?

    Mid-1980s Golden State Warriors gold uniforms?

    There tends to be some discrepancies on the mothership when it comes to NBA dates (especially pre-1990 NBA), mainly because there hasn't been as much research done compared to pro baseball and football.

    Mid-1980s Golden State Warriors gold uniforms?

    I will have to hunt down some pictures, but I am fairly sure Mullin played in the gold jerseys during his rookie season. EDIT:
  15. But, did they? Who put sleeves on jerseys? Classic jerseys?
  16. Exactly, which you'd think for a jersey honoring Magic it should be more 80's-ish, no?
  17. Without completely derailing this thread, I agree. I can't stand the layout of the Thunder's road icon jersey.
  18. Wait, what? Nobody has tagged @Teal to ask for his opinion on this matter?

    Seeing these warmups really make me miss the individual team designs of yesteryear ...
  20. We have the Players in the "Wrong" Uniforms thread and within that thread I've seen a few "Right Team, Wrong Uniform" entries. I thought I'd separate the two, because it is an interesting topic of its' own. Here are a few to start the thread off with ... Charles Barkley, Preseason 1992, Phoenix Suns Matt Hasselbeck, 2001, Seattle Seahawks Jeff Bagwell, 1992, Houston Astros.

    Can we stop calling the Hickory jerseys a throwback? (or classic edition)

    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    1) Was it? I thought Kroenke's wallets were pretty deep? Or are you saying that was the requirement of the NFL? 2) Yeah, I see your argument there. And, they totally would. Which makes me wonder how off they were on projections on this move. 3) Agreed. I do wonder though if the NFL would refund or negotiate a lower relocation fee if they did want to return? Either way, this is a disaster and will be for years.
  23. When I try to pinpoint the beginning of this madness, I look further than this monstrosity ...

    Los Angeles NFL Brands Discussion

    Honestly, the way I see the Chargers EVER moving back to San Diego is if the NFL and Rams agree that a second team doesn't move into the LA market if they left. I think the biggest reason why the Chargers jumped into the market is because they knew if the Raiders did that'd cut into their profits they enjoyed from a large team-less market for 20 years. I don't know if the Chargers really believed that San Diego fans would follow them to LA or if they really cared believing that there were enough people in the LA market to create a solid fan base? With the "success" they've had at StubHub, I can't wait to see what the stadium looks like on game day when they finally move into the Inglewood Stadium. A couple seasons of dismal attendance or lack of support could potentially force their hand to move back. Hopefully with new ownership.

    I mean from what I've seen putting around on LockerVision some matchups warrant a color vs. white matchup, but then I see matchups like ... Philadelphia vs. Atlanta in Philadelphia -- it's slated for BLUE (Phila) vs. WHITE (Atl) -- why not BLUE (Phila) vs. RED (Atl)? Cleveland vs. Houston in Cleveland -- it's slated for BLACK (Cle) vs. WHITE (Hou) -- why not BLACK (Cle) vs. RED (Hou)? or Dallas vs. New Orleans in Dallas -- it's slated for BLUE (Dal) vs. WHITE (NO) -- why not BLUE (Dal) vs. RED (NO)? Anyways, you get the point. The Association jerseys worn away from home court is stupid. They're boring. They shouldn't be worn unless it's unavoidable, which most of the time it would and can be.
