Almost looks like the bottom of the side panels on the new shorts might still be curved -- or at least still angled somehow and adjusted to the new template?

Yeah they definitely added pinstripes.

I like the current Magic uniforms, and these small changes makes them look even better IMO. It also looks like they removed the double outline on the wordmark and numbers, making it just a solid black outline (it used to be a silver inner outline and a black outer outline)

More pinstripes, modified side panels to adhere to the new template, blue collar, "MAGIC" on the waistband, obligatory Nike and sponsor patches.  Looks like the Orlando wordmark is further down from the collar as well. Also, it looks more arched in comparison to the pre-Nike version.

 

Some minimal upgrades, but this identity would benefit from using stars on the uniforms. Maybe a sublimated pattern on the side panels and adopting Minnesota's new font help (that font looks like an updated version of Orlando's number font from 1989-1998. And while I don't think the Nike template would allow for it, a small star hanging from the bottom tip of the collar. That would be a pretty good combination of elements from the team's different uniform eras.

There definitely are. It looks much better, IMO.

 

While I generally loathe the new NBA advertisements, I have to say - is there a better possible fit than Disney and the Orlando Magic in the entire sports universe? Glad both sides were able to make that happen. (Outside of the Indian Packing Company rising from the dead and sponsoring the Green Bay Packers, of course. ;))

I really like that the Nike template has straightened out the side panels for Orlando and Memphis -- a much cleaner and more modern look, IMO.

Looks like the same ol' jersey with new wordmark on chest and new "SA" logo replacing the spurs on the shorts.

Just like the Bulls, it looks like the Lakers are now going with one-color NOB's. For the Spurs, it looks like the wordmark is one-color, and the number font is staying the same (we already knew that'd be the case). It also looks like their new secondary logo might be inside the side panel on the shorts.

The Spurs' jerseys took a turn for the worst. Now the numbers don't match the wordmark since the wordmark doesn't have a silver double outline anymore. Also, replacing the Spur U on the shorts for that pathetic excuse for a logo is just downright awful.

Are the Spurs the only team that went without a waist logo?

 

Also looks like the silver is now gray on the side panels and the outer stroke is thicker.DWhiteW11.thumb.jpg.d76b6608ede41e3eb7431b9cf25d264f.jpg

^Minnesota doesn't have one either.

 

Here's some more shots of the Spurs uniforms:

These look exactly like crappy knockoffs you'd find on eBay.
