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!

The Nike logos are huge!

 

From the looks of it, Nike isn't forcing their wife beater template that is running rampant in the NCAA, on the NBA. That's huge, as that template is an abomination to basketball, and I can't imagine them putting hilariously long last names on those jerseys. 

 

They just need to shrink the Nike logos, and they are off to a good start.

About time somebody started this thread!  By the way, why no StubHub patch on the blue jersey?

I'm not sure, but this nike logo looks bigger than on "FIBA" jerseys, it's also looks bigger than StubHub patch.

BTW, I'm pretty sure that nike will use vapor/aeroswift template, but with standard cut not that wife beater.

Man, this looks like it's gonna be worse than I imagined it. I'm not ready for this.

On the one hand, "it could have been worse" can be said regarding uni ads.  On the other hand, it's an abomination and is pure profit for the league, which in no way will pass savings onto its fans.  I suppose NBA owners need more money so they can keep giving $80mil contracts to Ryan Anderson, but seriously, the NBA needs to be saved from itself.

Any idea when the first style guides/merchandise catalogs for next season are released to the appropriate parties? Have to imagine the Pistons will finally be switching to the new logo next year..

The swoosh on the shorts is fine, but the jersey is way too big. 

 

Also, wish the swoosh was on the bottom of the shorts, like in soccer.

Wasn't it supposed to be the Jumpman logo on the unis, and not the swoosh?

 

I thought the rumor was that it might be used just for Charlotte...

With the Nike logo that big, and ads that size...how will the anniversary and Finals patches fit on the jersey? Below the ad maybe?

Is this the first time a manufacturer will have their logo on the game worn jerseys?

Yeah the NBA moved the NBA logo, Christmas, Finals patches to the back. I'm more worried about teams trying to add a anniversary patch or something else commemorative.

I may be late to this, but are the Nike logos actually going to be on the uniforms?  I imagined it was going to be like Adidas where the logos stayed off the on-court uniform.  I was pumped that Nike got the NBA deal, but if the logos are going to be that big I have to admit this already feels like a bit of a let down.

I kind of don't mind the Nike logo on the unis as long as it doesn't wind up so huge that it just gets in the way of the quality of the uniforms

That swoosh is astronomically huge. I hope that's just a prototype and that the real finished product scales it down.

 

Nike already has a good scale set for the swoosh on college basketball uniforms, why not just run with that from the get-go? This is a perfectly acceptable size:
