NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

As long as the colors don’t clash, I don’t care if NBA teams move away from white vs. color. The NBA seemed to stop enforcing that rule many seasons back, might as well just drop it entirely.

Yeah, i am ok with the home team wearing white, but if the home one is color i prefer the away to be color as well.

Another color on color game last night, this time between the Rockets and Mavs:

Two :censored:ty uniforms, but at least the colors contrasted well.

Bloods vs Crips! Looks great

I think it was a mistake for the league to let teams run amok and wear whatever they want, too many games look messy and amateurish.

I am the same way. I hate seeing white being worn by the visiting team.

I'm not sure what to think; I do like color vs. color, but in cases of a clash I don't know. I don't want visitors to wear white, but I also don't want both teams wearing tonally similar colors (no royal blue/kelly green, or white/yellow, or red/orange) or colorblindness-clashing colors.

Same arena, same photographer.

 

Last season:

This season:

Obviously this is still an imperfect way to compare, as there’s no way to know how/if the specific angles of the shots swayed the colors, and if there are any editing effects applied to the photos, but I think this is still a fairly accurate way to compare the two. Nike has their own specific color codes so it’s possible the two shades are slightly different, and I’d say the Nike uniforms do look a bit richer and brighter, but I don’t think it’s as pronounced as some are making it out to be. One thing I’ve noticed as well is that these new Nike uniforms don’t seem to show the sweat as much as the Adidas threads, so that could be be a part of it as well.

From what i can tell, the new Celts green is alot brighter, especially compared to last year, glad to see im not going crazy.

Not sure how much stock I'd put in this comparison considering LeBron's skin tone is also different in both pics.

I wonder if this bag logo from the Suns team shop is any indication of a future change in the primary logo with the uniforms new emphasis on purple and orange. Current logo features black orange yellow and white. Just speculating.

Any indication as to when we will see the pride jerseys?

1) They won’t be called “pride” uniforms, although the general concept is similar to that.

2) How many times have you asked that question on here?

3) Probably in the next month or two unless they leak earlier than that.

I will keep asking until I get an answer that is somewhat knowledgeable, unlike yours.

Ha! I can assure you my answer is definitely knowledgeable. For one thing, there have been many people and sources claiming the fourth uniforms will be unveiled sometime in late fall, early winter. And then second, I have a couple of sources in sports retail who have given me similar information based on Nike catalogs and memos that’ve been sent out to retailers.

I was joking around. I think we will see the 4th unis sometime in November.

I guess I was always confused as to why away teams got to wear colors. Like you'd have OKC hosting Golden State. The court, seats, arena, fan jerseys and giveaway shirts are all blue, and then GS is the one wearing the blue jerseys. If you didn't know better, you'd tune in and assume they were the home team. So I'm all for color at home, I think it makes the most sense aesthetically. And when you throw in another color, you get some unique combinations that can make the game as a whole look really cool.

In hockey, it used to be the road team didn’t get their sweaters washed each period. So dark jerseys hid the stains better. Maybe basketball borrowed the tradition.

Lakers’ Classic Edition officially unveiled:

I’m not a Lakers fan by any stretch of the imagination, but this is one of my favorite uniforms in NBA history, and I’m ecstatic to see it brought back this season. The white text of the ad patch sticks out like a sore thumb (though ad patches in general stick out like a sore thumb), but otherwise I think it looks great. It’ll be worn for five games this season, the first of which will be on Wednesday night against the Wizards.

Wearing it against the Wolves in Minnesota would be cool.

I kind of wish it would be worn more than 5 times.  Hell, the Warriors are wearing their classic look 13 times this season.  

Oh well.

EDIT: The dates these will be worn has been added to the tracker I have been working on.
