Funny that they have the silly college lanes still.  I thought any new court had to get rid of them.

 

It isn't mandatory and it should stay that way. Let the teams decide. I personally like the college lanes, it's what I'm use to.

Weird, I thought they added more pinstripes. In Jonathan Isaac's rookie shoot, he was shown wearing a blue Magic uniform in the Nike template. And one of the notable differences was the added pinstripes.

@Conrad. just released a nice article on the main site regarding the unreleased jerseys. Some cool concepts for most while other team's continue to drop the ball.

 

Still no sign of this Utah(Phoenix Suns gradient uniform) whoever supposed to have it. 

 

It could be the one that's listed there. It mentions the wordmark and numbers are accurate, the rest is a guesstimation.

 

Also, I might get hate for this but OKC's is my favorite currently on the page

unfortunately, I think the Jazz gradient uni will be separate from this gold one. SLC Dunk reported a couple weeks back that they had inside information of the Jazz having a gold uni AND a gradient uni. i just hope that the gradient uni uses little gold and is vastly different from this gold uni.

I like the look on a macro level, but the K is too heavy and the O is too close to the K. I can’t tell from the photo, but if the typeface for the OKC is different from the numbers, that seems like a miss. 

 

Well hey, other than 66.66% of the letters being messed up and the fonts not matching, looks like a winner.

They definitely did add more pinstripes, they just didn't mention it in the release of the uniforms. Compare this (and, to a lesser extent, the mockups posted by the Magic):

Clearly there are more pinstripes on the new Nike versions, they just didn't point it out in the release of the new uniforms.

Love more pinstripes, gives it more of a Shaq/Penny Era look. Stars on shorts would've made it even better.

Just a star on the waistband instead of "Magic" would have made it better.

I see it now. Thanks. It just looked like fewer stripes on the mockups. I think that's what made me curious.

I know that months if not years of planning go into what eventually become the final uniforms, but I'm going to take this opportunity to shamelessly plug my yellow Utah Jazz alternate concept from a couple months ago that apparently is ending up being relatively close to what they'll actually wear:

I haven't been on the boards much lately, and haven't worked on any concepts in what seems like forever, but with more of the alternates being leaked/released/etc. I might have to get back to it.

And that's a bummer. It almost sounds like Jazz brass is taking the Gordon Hayward departure to Boston juuust a little too personal to remove a green (a dark green at that!) option from the rotation. 🙄 😋

 

I have a theory that they went from purple to blue with the J-Note logo so as to not look too much like the Lakers (which is actually a fair point, as most pre-1997 Utah Jazz apparel is dang near identical to the Lakers, save for the logo, being primarily purple and yellow). Of course, this could be easily solved by emphasizing green as the secondary color over yellow with purple being the primary color, but Jazz management has a track record, though good overall, in getting juuust one or two things off in terms of team design.

They add 5 more pinstripes to jerseys.
