  1. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Thanks for the correction. I've been trying to avoid using those terms for that exact reason. And yes, Phoenix has worn their classic edition twice at home - so I should have said they've only worn white at home (which was really what I was going for and should have said anyway).

    Should be a pretty interesting week this week uni-wise, especially after Thursday. Up to this point we've seen color v. color 11% of the time. By my count 18 teams now have enough contrast between their Association and Statement uniforms that they could conceivable go color v color against any opponent. And that number will go up even more with some of the City uniforms that have been teased already. Some observations from last week: Miami and Washington wore the same uniforms against each other on both Wednesday (@ Miami) and Friday (@ Washington) - Heat in throwbacks, Wizards in red Miami still has not worn their Association uniform since debuting their Classic design Miami has worn their Classic uniform in 7 straight games, the longest current streak in one uniform Toronto has played two home games against the Wizards, and worn red in both of those games Boston has played the most color v. color games (7) and is undefeated in those games Brooklyn, Chicago, and Houston have worn only their Association uniforms at home Detroit, Milwaukee, New York, Phoenix have worn only their Icon uniforms at home 48% of games (115/240) have featured one team in white and one team in blue. The home team has been in white for 68% of those games

    The Thunder are wearing blue at home for national tv games specifically because it has the city name on the front, not the team name. Especially in smaller markets, that city name getting air time seems to be a big deal.

    Several potential color conflicts - my guess is they'll have a white version for each team if necessary

    I can't get the image to upload here, but check out the explanation of the Gonzaga uniform at the bottom of this Nike release. Might want to proofread that next time...

    Miami has worn their throwbacks in 6 of the 8 games they've played since debuting them. They wore white in the other two.

    The CNY jersey is supposedly their "Community jersey" so it's going to be considered part of their regular rotation - they may be wearing it other times.

    9 games last night, 9 home teams in white. First time since opening night that every home team has worn white.

    Interesting. I didn't know that about the original. I still don't love the look, but since it's consistent with the originals I can't really fault the choice to go that way. Just personal preference.

    Wow, the overlapping collar does not work at all for me. Would much prefer a scoop/crew neck with continuous striping. It's not as noticeable from farther away but up close I don't like that at all.

    Thank you!

    Some additional observations from my tracking: If you're looking for traditional uni-matchups, your best bet is to watch a game early in the work week. Teams have gone traditional 75% of games on Monday (15 total), 73% on Tuesday (16) and 71% on Wednesday (27). Avoid Friday, only 43% of games (16) have had the home team in white and road in dark. The Celtics (5-0), Bulls (1-4), and Rockets (4-1) have all played five color vs. color games so far. The Cavs, Nuggets, Warriors, Bucks, Timberwolves, Knicks, Suns, Trailblazers, and Kings have not played any color vs. color games. There are only three uniforms that are undefeated: Lakers throwback (1-0) 76ers white (2-0) and Kings white (2-0).

    Miami have not worn their "regular" black set since introducing the throwbacks. They've played 7 games since they first wore the throwbacks on 11/1. They've worn them five times and the white set twice.
  14. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Whether it's home or away, nobody will know who this team is when they wear this
  15. NBA Changes 2017-18

    Good point - poor wording on my part. I agree - it would be surprising to me if they didn't wear the others at least once at home.
