  1. Yes, for 13 teams(to be 14 after tonight), the dream of the Lawrence F. O'Brien Trophy being in their hands is just that, a dream. Please to be discussing your next-season prospects here.
  2. 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.
  3. A companion series to "Players in the 'wrong' uniforms" and "Players on the right team but wrong uniform"...this is about players who spent most of their careers in crappy unis. Obviously the poster boy here is Tom Brady. But there are others. There must be others.
  4. We should be getting a few press conferences today with drafted rookies. Here's a few news bits on new numbers ...
  5. A complete set of uniforms, plus court designs, will follow in July.

    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?

    NBA Literal Jersey Series

    Hey all! Decided to do a fun jersey series during this NBA offseason. These fun alternate jerseys I will be making will all reflect the team name and team name only, as you will see, quite literally. I will be moving down in order of division in each conference and in order of city name in each division. I will kick this series off with these three teams: Boston Celtics: The same look as the Celtics' mascot Brooklyn Nets: Quite literally the weaving of a basketball net. New York Knicks: Since many of you may not know what a Knick is, its short for Knickerbocker, which is an older term for a New Yorker. Thus, the retro vest and tie top and brown pants. More will be coming soon if y'all like this series idea! Template credit to therealpepman
  9. Hi! Not new here but it has been long since I finished my last concept... And now back with a NFL to NBA concept. First I want to thank @R3G for his amazing nike NBA template! Very user-friendly. The 1990s NBA jerseys seem to be controversial because of it's colors and details, and I would like to see how the NFL teams can fit into it. Since the Eagles unveiled their current set in 1990s so I decided to start with it. Inspired by the 1992-95 Hawks set and 1997-2011 Wizards set, which both have single-sided stripe and similar curved jersey logos. May back with the white/alt or I will start another new team. C&C is always appreciated!! Thanks for reading!!

    2018 NBA Concepts

    I've never done NBA concept series like this before. I've only done court designs but never jerseys. Big shout out to Hoopladawg87 for sharing one of his templates with me, and to Daniel Ramone for creating it. This series is mostly a tweak of what teams were wearing during the 2017/2018 season. Home and roads only for now. I hope to finish it. Up first, the Philadelphia 76ers No major changes here. Just reverting the roads to red because blue looks a little boring them. Updating the wordmark to match the font on their 2017/18 City Jersey which I think makes the jersey looks less cluttered (thin wordmark makes more room for thick side panels). #2. Orlando Magic Inspired by the T-Mac era jerseys, as 90s as they are, I think the stars could work (if Atlanta's triangles are any indication of a watermark pattern would look like) and they're a more unique identifier than pinstripes (which I think are a little tired). I also switched the blue out for a darker shade which I think suits a Florida team more. Feedback welcome of course.

    NBA G-League by Nike (Help Needed!)

    Hey all- I have noticed a heavy lack of G-League concepts on the boards, and this is my attempt to produce a solid series of G-League concepts. As you all know, the NBA switched to Nike this year, and the G-League joined them as well. Similar to how Adidas did the D-League, Nike as created a jersey template and simply changes the word mark and colors of the jersey for each team. While yes, it is a developmental basketball league, I believe that the teams deserve to have their own identities and own set of uniforms. That being said, I have the first team of the series completed. I will be going in no particular order, so let's get this underway shall we? Fort Wayne Mad Ants The one requirement I have for the G-League teams is that they follow the colors of their parent team, and the Mad Ants are the first example of this. They are the Pacers affiliate, and they recently switched their colors to blue and yellow. So here is the logo set and uniforms for the Mad Ants. The logos are fairly self-explanatory, although the alternate logo needs a little clarification. Fort Wayne is called "Summit City", so the mountain in the W is symbolic of that name. The one thing I wanted to do about the G-League uniforms is move the advertiser from the front bottom to the back. I feel like it cleans up the jersey and makes it look better as well. So here's the first team, I'll have a second one tonight possibly but if not, it will be tomorrow morning. C&C appreciated as always.

    NBA Changes 2017-18

    It's probably about time to start this, so I'll open it up with this pic I was shown today. That Nike logo is MASSIVE. There's a possibility that this is a prototype uni, but either way, the Nike logos will be on the tops and shorts next season (along with ads on the opposite side of the top for some teams). Not a great start for Nike here. Hopefully the rebrands they plan on spear-heading will make up for some of the other issues. Can't wait to see it all unfold!
  13. Since Nike is going to be the new jersey supplier for the NBA I made some concepts to show my take on the new jerseys. I used the USA olympic jersey featuring a nike vapor jersey and made my own mockup on it, to get the realistic stitching details on the numbers and logo I used a photoshop action called realistic stitching action to make it look realistic as possible. I hope you guys enjoy! Half way done the other half of the NBA will be uploaded as soon as possible. Feedback would be helpful!!

  15. Four and a half years since my last concept of any kind was posted, combined with a sick day at home from work, mixed with the urge to create and some basketball guy changing teams has led to this. Enjoy...
  16. The year is 1974, new ownership has taken over the struggling Tams franchise. With a new team, a new identity, and unwavering support, basketball in Memphis is happenin' again! Can ya dig it?
  17. A while back, I took a stab at an Oklahoma City Thunder concept. The basic idea of the concept was to combine simple, bold elements with more detailed and technical designs derived from Western and Native American culture. I thought that in principle my ideas were good, but the whole thing was a bit rushed. I ended up making a lot of execution mistakes that didn't make the set look the greatest. I knew though that with some work I could make the concept really dope. So, I took a look back at what I had done and created Mark II of my OKC Thunder concept. First, we start with the marks. I kept the basic ideas from my first concept (the Oklahoma Sunrise pattern, the monogram logo), refining them further. The biggest change is the shape and alignment of the letters in the monogram. In the first concept, while the elements being inside of the O was a clean and simple, a lot of people had a hard time distinguishing what was what in the logo. This time, I opted for a long, more horizontal O and a big K, which gives the logo a clearer and bolder look. In addition, the C is much more noticeable and part of the logo than before. Like before, the logo has Oklahoma Sunrise and plain white variants. And now, for the uniforms. The biggest problem with the original uniforms was that the Oklahoma Sunrise striping pattern on the side panels was too thin and created a vibrating effect when viewed from far away. In addition, I didn't like the way that the wordmark and the logos on the shorts looked. Therefore, I updated the striping pattern, making it bolder and more pronounced. The uniform typeface is different, using a bolder font with more subtle Western styling. I also changed the shorts logo accordingly throughout the uniforms. Thanks for taking a look! If you could leave some comments and critiques it would be much appreciated!

    NBA Redesign Concepts (Celtics 4/27)

    As a Jazz fan who's not a huge fan of the current design (minus the City Edition jersey), I figured I would try my hand at redesigning the team. Changing the colors to dark purple, teal, and copper, the team resurrects a snowflake logo. The Association uniform is off-white, the Icon uniform purple, the Statement uniform teal, and the new City Edition uniform a gradient going from pewter blue to dark blue. C&C welcome!
  19. I have been snooping around on here for a while and I am ready to give it a shot. Because I am getting on Spring Break right now, I decided I would do a project. I am going to be refreshing and redesigning many big four sports teams. Here's a list: MLB Baltimore Orioles Tampa Bay Rays (Page 2) Cleveland Indians Minnesota Twins Houston Astros Los Angeles Angels Oakland A's Texas Rangers New York Mets (Page 1) Philadelphia Phillies (Page 1) Cincinnati Reds Pittsburgh Pirates Los Angeles Dodgers San Francisco Giants NHL Boston Bruins New York Islanders New York Rangers Washington Capitals Los Angeles Kings (Page 2) San Jose Sharks NFL Cleveland Browns Pittsburgh Steelers Kansas City Chiefs (Page 2) New York Jets Indianapolis Colts Green Bay Packers Washington Redskins NBA Boston Celtics Brooklyn Nets Orlando Magic (Page 1) Dallas Mavericks Los Angeles Clippers Los Angeles Lakers Utah Jazz (Page 2) Here's the first team Team: Philadelphia Phillies League: MLB Reason for Update: Too much for too little The old Phillies logo is just too busy for no reason. I got rid of the baseball field outline and the underline. C&C Apperciated. Next team will be the Mets so stay tuned!
  20. I am fascinated, like many others, with failed expansion and relocation of big league sports teams. While I am aware of most from the MLB and NBA, there's still a lot I don't know about the NFL and NHL failed bids. I thought this thread would be a fun place to share some of those failed expansion and relocated teams. If there are any proposed logos, uniforms, etc. please share those! MLB St. Louis Browns failed move to Los Angeles (1941) San Diego Padres failed move to Washington (1974) San Francisco Giants failed moves to Toronto (1975) and St. Petersburg (1992) NFL Los Angeles Rams failed move to Baltimore (1994) The failed Seattle Kings expansion (1976) The failed St. Louis Stallions, Baltimore Bombers, Memphis Hound Dogs expansion (1995) NBA Sacramento Kings failed move to Anaheim (2011) and Seattle (2012) Charlotte Hornets failed move to Memphis (2001) The failed Anaheim and Toronto expansion (1988/89) NHL St. Louis Blues failed move to Saskatoon (1983) Nashville Predators failed move to Hamilton (2007) The failed Hampton Roads Rhinos expansion (1997)

    NBA 2K League

    So apparently the NBA is getting into eSports, with the NBA 2K League. The inaugural season features 17 teams, each with their own parent club, being an NBA team. Here are the logos and a little blurb about each. All of them were designed by RARE Design of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, with input from franchises. Pacers Gaming "The logo features a modernized Pacers Panther which is unique to the franchise. Kelly Krauskopf, current Indiana Fever President and Pacers SVP said, “Boomer is part of the Pacers heritage; the logo takes Boomer into another dimension.” Krauskopf continued, “Our goal was to create a logo that connected with our past while communicating an edgy, confident and dynamic esports brand. I think we accomplished that.”" Pistons Gaming Team (GT) "The Pistons GT logo incorporates branding elements of the Detroit Pistons while presenting an individualized, distinctive logo to exist in the NBA 2K League and appeal to gamers worldwide. The new logo integrates automotive piston imagery into a progressive design that is representative of the toughness, attitude and hardcore spirit of the region and its basketball history." Cavs Legion GC "The Cavs Legion GC official team colors are wine and gold, consistent with the look and feel of the Cavaliers NBA team franchise. The official team logo features a contemporary adaptation of the Cavalier profile, set above the team name in a sharp typeface that’s inspired by the edges of a sword. “The team’s name, colors and logo honor the heritage of the organization, yet reflects the bold new territory of esports and the renegade nature of a Cavalier,” said Tracy Marek, Cavs Chief Marketing Officer. “This results in an edgy, new-age version of the iconic Cavs brand that fits within the current esports landscape. We are excited for the opportunity to bring the same energy and passion we put into our other properties to Cavs Legion and the entire esports community.”" (Quick side note: The description here mentions how the font is inspired by the "edge of a sword" when every team uses the same font. Weird, huh?) Mavs Gaming "For Mavs Gaming, this was about finding the true meaning of what makes a modern Maverick. “We wanted a symbol that was unexpected, fearless, with a swagger that is rooted in our Dallas heritage,” said Dallas Mavericks and Mavs Gaming owner Mark Cuban. “We are confident that whomever we draft for our team will be proud to wear it.”" Kings Guard Gaming "The team logo is rooted in the ferocity of the lion, the nobility of the crown and the strength associated with the color black. A new lion was created to mesh the iconic Kings marks with a fresh, esports appeal. The name, Kings Guard, references the passion of esports players entering a virtual battleground." Wizards District Gaming "The identity for Wizards District Gaming draws inspiration from the Washington Wizards’ brand. Fans and supporters will quickly recognize a commitment to the city through both the incorporation of “District” into the formal name, as well as the three stars that pay homage to the District of Columbia flag. The “Monumental” spaces reflect the inclusion into the larger MSE family, while paying tribute to the Washington Monument, a prominent feature of the DC skyline. The logo also encompasses key values that are important to the overall MSE brand, including a community-first approach, inclusivity and technological innovation. The logo provides fans with a new, yet familiar way to experience Monumental’s newest franchise." Magic Gaming "The Magic Gaming logo incorporates elements from the NBA Magic team’s logo, including the identifiable colors of Magic Black and Magic Silver and the iconic basketball, while providing an edgier, more mysterious feel that captures the essence and identity of the NBA 2K League team. The color black, primarily featured, conveys a sense of strength and power. This modernized and innovative look also includes Magic Gaming’s secondary logo featuring the iconic star." Heat Check Gaming "Bringing the Heat. Competition. We live for it, love it, and will burn you with it. It’s who we are. Our culture. We are the hardest working, best conditioned, toughest, meanest, nastiest team you’re gonna face, so go ahead and get in line for your participation trophy, because the big one is ours. We’re here for one reason — to win — so if you can’t take the Heat…" Jazz Gaming "The primary icon and global logos, which pay tribute to the Jazz as well as the state of Utah, feature the letter “U” in the color white in the shape of the state of Utah. It is tilted at 66 degrees, with the drop shadow forming the letter “J” in gold and outlined in navy. The secondary logo features "Jazz Gaming" with a beamed pair of eighth notes in place of the "A" in Jazz." Celtics Gaming "Tradition defined. Few clubs — very few — have a tradition or a heritage that run as deep as ours. Celtic pride isn’t just a mantra, it’s a way of life. Green isn’t just our color, it’s our lifeblood. And winning isn’t just a hope, it’s our heritage." Blazer5 Gaming "The new Blazer5 Gaming logo draws its inspiration from the Trail Blazers iconic pinwheel design. The logo makes use of the franchise’s red, black, and white color palette, melding the classic five-on-five swirl into two energetic interlocking blocks. The result captures the inherent action of the original logo, while representing both the individual and team aspects of the competitive esports world." Warriors Gaming Squad "The Warriors Gaming Squad logo serves as a visual bridge between the NBA Golden State Warriors franchise and its NBA 2K League team. The Warriors Gaming Squad logo’s inspiration came from early video game designs that relied on a square, flat graphic, which later progressed to a cube and three-dimensional design. The logo pays homage to the old and celebrates the new as it appears flat and three-dimensional simultaneously. It is contained in a circle, which evokes a basketball and the rich history of the Warriors organization." Raptors Uprising Gaming Club (GC) "Raptors Uprising GC reflects the Toronto Raptors organization’s ‘outsider’ attitude while the esports team’s logo is a chevron, pointing North, taken from the side of the Raptors jersey." Knicks Gaming "We are New York, baby. We rep the greatest city on earth. Our city that never sleeps. Our city that expects toughness. Our city that expects soul. Our city that defines and redefines the game on its streets, and within its chain-linked courts, at will. And we rep our city with grit, heart, and hustle... Forever." (Gosh I wish I could say this is a joke.) Grizz Gaming "Grizz Gaming’s logo is bold and balanced. It is inspired by the Grizzlies’ tenacity, updated for a digital space. The ‘Grizz Gaming’ GG ligature combines the ‘Grit and Grind’ ethos of the Grizzlies NBA franchise with a tacit nod to a traditional gaming sign-off, ‘Good Game’. The bear claw updates the Grizzlies’ secondary logo, elevating it to primary logo status, with each of the five claws representing the five players on the team. The official colors invoke a more simplified version of the Grizzlies’ color scheme, boldly relying on the Grizzlies’ fan favorite Beale Street and Midnight Blues." Bucks Gaming "The primary logo for Bucks Gaming features a stag, which throughout mythology has been portrayed as the king of the forest. With distinct lines and sharp edges creating a buck ready to strike, the Bucks Gaming logo represents the organization’s fierce independence and bold confidence. Negative space in the logo is utilized in the buck’s head to create both a “B” representing Bucks Gaming, as well as subtle reminders of the buck’s forward movement. The logo represents the idea of genuine nobility, with the buck’s antlers creating a figurative crown declaring his place at the front of the pack with a deep sense of pride." 76ers Gaming Club (GC) "Inspired by the city’s revolutionary origins and the modern edge of the esports athlete, the primary logo reflects the number “76” fused into the shape of a bell in tribute to Philadelphia’s iconic Liberty Bell and 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence." All logos/descriptions taken from these three websites: https://nba.2k.com/2kleague/blog/team-logos-revealed-part-i/ https://nba.2k.com/2kleague/blog/team-logos-revealed-part-2/ https://nba.2k.com/2kleague/blog/team-logos-revealed-part-3/ All in all, I think these suck. The only decent ones are 76ers GC, Blazer5, and Jazz Gaming, in my opinion. The rest all feel so corporate, and since they were all made by RARE, none of them have any personality. But that's just my two cents. What do you guys think? (Quick P.S.: I'm sorry if this has already been discussed. I just found out about this and wanted to discuss.)
  22. So..."Biggest upgrades" and "Biggest downgrades" are already a thing on here. I figured I may as well start the only remaining thread in the series. In your opinion, which uniforms kept the quality close to the same level as their predecessors? For me the classic example would be the lateral move made by the Denver Broncos in 1997. They went from good uniform to good uniform (in my opinion anyway) while changing the dark jersey color and radically altering their design. The 1996 Philadelphia Eagles were similar - big changes, but all in all went from middling to middling. If there is a bad-to-bad lateral move...that one's a little trickier. I'm sure someone can fill us in though.
  23. I didnt think these were worthy of two separate threads, but a VERY SIMPLE graphic i made for the playoffs. Each box gets filled in after a win, as you can see with the NHL after 1 game for each. The teams facing off are across from each other, its a race to fill in the triangle in the middle, claiming the majority, making you move on. In the larger hexagon they are in, the two teams that get the triangles that are touching will get to face off in the next round. Simple. I always wanted to see one like this as opposed to the wild designs like the filling in of the rink. Itd be cool if there were some kind of comments/suggestions but theres no need as this isnt really a "concept" NHL day 3 NBA Day 1
  24. I can see this NBA courts redesign thing is quite popular these days on the forum. So here is mine. I'm gonna post how i think NBA courts should look like with their current logos and colors, and how i think that team's court should look like with my personal set of logos of that team. I have to mention that i started watching the NBA in 2001 so most of the teams i think should look like in that era. I'm gonna do them alphabetically so here is the Atlanta Hawks. I really don't like the use of neon green they have so i tried to minimize it on their court. I think they should be red and white team. And here is how i think the Hawks should look like. Next is Boston. C&C is appreciated.
  25. With the NBA switching to Nike upon the expiration of Adidas' contract with the League at the end of this season, this thread will be where I'll share all of my designs. Ideally I want to create home and away uniforms for all 30 teams, but that may be a bit ambitious so we'll see what happens. I'll start with one uniform for each of the 16 playoff teams and then hopefully progress from there. This will be an exercise focusing primarily on colors, fonts, and minimalist design elements to create a clean and unique look for each team that reinforces or in some cases redesigns their brand. As always, any and all comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated! Indiana Pacers Away Uniform This takes the clean aesthetic of their current look and recalls the more yellow-centric color balance of their uniforms from the early '90s, adding a sublimated checkerboard racing stripe pattern along the side panels. Chicago Bulls Away Uniform While black is typically used as an alternate uniform color for the Bulls, the Jordan-era pinstripes were too classic to pass up. This look doesn't reinvent those classic jerseys so much as it simply reapplies it to the updated Nike Aeroswift jersey template.
