How come the Lakers and Nike can't see there is a huge problem with the space at the top of numeral 9? The 6 does not have the same issue.

I agree re: unifying the one-color wordmarks with the numerals. I'd go a step further and eliminate the silver trim entirely, though. 

 

I'm pretty sure I mocked that up some time ago, but never posted it. When I get to my desktop I'll post it because as much as I still like their new look, I think those few additional tweaks make more sense and look better.

Couple of observations: 

 

1) I was hoping new material would fix the loud, saturated green the Hawks' road uniforms have on T.V., but it appears worse -- both the numbers and the nobs glow on T.V. In previous template it was just the names on the back. I'm already tired of these uniforms, though the homes with the red numbers look so much better. The road blacks are just too dirty for me. 

 

2) I JUST NOW noticed the Rockets' jerseys have traditional piping and the original design is minimalized on the side panel. It looks awful. They might as well completely change the look. 

 

3) Big fan of Phoenix. The new sun burst on the shorts doesn't feel as out of place as the old one.

First thing that came to mind was Wonder Woman.

This has been an issue since the Adidas days, maybe even the later Reebok days iirc.

Is it just me or are the Nike jerseys more "vibrant" than the Adidas ones?

It's just you.

From a distance, the Nuggets' navy jerseys (especially the side panels) look pretty much the same as the Grizzlies'.  Probably one of the worst changes this year.

You mean the hole in the number is bigger on the 9 than the 6?

The 6 is a different design than the 9.  The 9's hole is more circular

Sometimes the 6 has the more circular holes. My guess is that they just flipped a 9 around sometimes. It's not just Nike.

The Suns' new uniforms looked really good tonight.

The jerseys are great, don't get me wrong but they are just a huge step down from the creativity seen in the Sunburst jerseys.

I look things up better on a PC so I won't look for it right now, but a few years back Paul Lukas posted on one of his NBA previews the fonts for all the teams and the official Lakers font has the 6 look "normal" and the 9 look "holey."

I agree. The side panel piping is supposed to be a continuous loop around the armhole so to add sleeve trim and a truncated panel piping just leaves the complete uniform looking messy. This template is way due for an update. I dont know why it wasnt updated with the Nike rollout rather than just bastardized

As a Blazer fan, it's amazing how much I LOVE your mock-up and HATE what they actually went with.  The devil is in the details and the number outline and silver stripe legitimately ruin one of the best uniforms in the league.

I think the A hole is bigger too.

We got a full new page and it is ABSOLUTELY nothing new but ramble jargon on the size of a hole and the weak ass Blazers "update".. Man you guys sure know how to get me worked up for nothing.

Okay, so the Lakers moved to the big-holed 9 either in 2011-12 or perhaps as early as the 2009-10 season. There were no players wearing 9, 19, 29, etc. in 2009-10, but Sun Yue wore number 9 in the 2008-09 season and the number 9 looked normal back then. Matt Barnes press conference jersey in 2010 looked normal but not sure if he began wearing the big holed 9 in 2010-11 or 2011-12.

 

Here's the font guide from Paul Lukas ESPN preview article in December 2011:
