NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

The Nike takeover significantly downgraded the side panels for the Grizzlies and Magic, and destroyed any sense the Rockets and Raptors designs (which weren't great in the first place) had. And that's not counting the  awful way arm trim and side panels overlap on teams with both like the Sixers and Spurs. And if you also add how the interrupted arm trim, the off center notch on the shorts that interrupts continuous stripes, and the belt buckle  logo on the shorts even for teams that don't need one like the Bulls and I really struggle to see how this the adidas-Nike switch is an improvement. The alts are probably better and thank G-d there are no sleeves, but pretty much every jersey in the NBA got downgraded slightly without even counting the ads and the nike swoosh

Agreed. Some of the Statement uniforms and lack of sleeves are an improvement, but none of the "regular" uniforms look better on the Nike Vapor template. I guess you could say that the Wolves unis are a slight improvement over the previous ones, but that's not saying much. The Blazers (wordmarks), Pelicans (wordmarks) and Clippers (loss of black / redesign) also look slightly better, but that's not because of the template. All in all...probably a lateral move altogether. Unless somehow these City Edition uniforms blow us away, but I highly doubt that happening.

Is anyone surprised that Nike fudged up the NBA after seeing what they did to the NFL?

 

God, I miss the days of Sand-Knit and Champion.

I still have a couple of champion jerseys I wear like it's 1996!

While I "know" Memphis is getting a new/refinished court, don't count on this being 100% accurate. I've never seen the wordmarks colored this way on navy blue, only the inverse:

I wish there were some gold involved in the new/2K court, it is a clean, no-nonsense look.

 

 

Grizzlies posted about their new video board last week. Just realized they gave us a sneak of the new court as well:

All-navy lanes are confirmed, as well as the proper coloring of the baseline wordmarks.

Raptors striping looks hideous.  Huge fail by Nike.

Wizards home uniform schedule:

That image doesn’t include the games with the navy “Statement” uniform. Here’s the full version from the site you linked to:

Also, in case anyone hasn’t already figured it out, the games with the darker navy background and player silhouette are the games where they’ll wear the yet-to-be-released community-inspired uniform.

And this helps me out for uniform tracking purposes.  At least with the home games.

yeah, there are a whole bunch of awkward looks with these updates nike is doing. Still better than any sleeved atrocities but its pretty disappointing so far.

The thing that irritates me most is that both the Cavs and Warriors have retained their superfluous, incongruous dark gray jerseys, just now with minor design updates and sans sleeves. Nice gesture to commemorate their shared era of dominance, I guess?

Not sure if this has been posted here, but an interesting note re: the Jazz jersey schedule for upcoming season. Based on Nike's formatting, I'd assume (but can't confirm) it's the same for all teams.

That seems excessive.  Not sure why they need a new jersey every season.  Hopefully not every team is like that and settle on jerseys for longer than the Jazz will be doing.
