NBA Changes 2017-18

Magic wearing white at home tonight. I wish there was a rhyme or reason to it all, but I think the team is just riding whatever jersey they're hot in.

I kinda like it other than the illegible number and "NORTH".  Put TORONTO on there and make the number visible and we're talking.

I totally agree, the chevrons on the current sides are too small especially after Nike's update. This is a more unique way to incorporate them and it does play in well to the idea of the "North". I'd love to see this with "Toronto" and in correct team colors.

This Lakers-Celtics game is showing exactly why color at home for the sake of it doesn't work in a lot of situations.

 

Look how much the Celtics players blend into the court.

 

My thought exactly. There is a certain balance to their parquet floor and home white jerseys that's perfection.

The green looks different tonight than it did earlier in the season. It's a shade darker.

Nike having trouble with green? I never...

Yeah, it's definitely different now. What's interesting is that in the game NBA 2K18, the developers scanned all the Nike uniforms themselves and the shade that the Celtics are wearing right now are the ones that have been in the game since it came out in September indicating it was suppose to be like this all along, so what was the deal with that lighter green in the first month of the season?

I dunno, are we sure it wasn't just a lighting thing? Celtics haven't worn these at home until tonight.

 

I don't know if lighting can explain this:

There’s no doubt in my mind that the green is the exact same as the beginning of the season. Different lighting conditions in the different arenas, and different cameras being used by TV crews and photographers have no doubt played a role in the green looking a bit lighter at times. Green is a color that can look really different in different conditions (think of the Jets’ green) and the issue is especially evident with the materials Nike uses. I’ve seen the same thing with Oregon’s football and basketball uniforms over the years, whether it be the dark green they used to use or the lighter kelly green they’ve been using the last several years.

Why hasn't this been an issue in prior seasons? We've never had a discussion about the Celtics green looking weird arena-by-arena in prior seasons. And that was when teams wore dark colors on the road consistently.

If I'm being honest, when I first got an HDTV in 2009, I noticed right away that the Celtics green was brighter. Tonight, I don't have this bright green issue anymore so I'm not totally sure what's going on here and I've had the same TV since 2009. I've chalked up that past color issue being a problem with my TV until tonight now it just looks different. I don't know, maybe we're all overthinking this.

First off, I’m sure if you went back and looked at videos and pictures from past seasons, you’d notice some subtle differences in how their green appears in different arenas, lighting conditions, etc. And then secondly, the different materials used by Adidas and Nike absorb and show sweat in different ways, which can sway how the colors appear. Lastly, and most importantly, the different materials absorb and reflect light in different ways, which is why they can appear so different in a variety of environments and conditions. It’s something called metamerism, which is a common issue that designers encounter when working with different materials. Two things that are composed from different materials but appear to be the exact same color can look different depending on how the materials absorb and reflect light. Two things that aren’t the same color can look like they match in certain conditions, and two things that are the same color can look different in certain conditions.

To quote another poster, Nike and the NBA have been "shockingly inept" with this uniform rollout and policy of letting teams where whatever they want whenever they want.

How I long for the golden days of yore when the home team wore white jerseys (except for the Lakers and their yellow jerseys) and the road team wore dark jerseys...

 

This new-fangled NBA is a hot mess.

Gold and Black is here to stay. This is the Raptors 4th "City Edition" Nike Uniform. This uniform replaces last seasons "Drake" uniform. It is unclear when this jersey will see the court for the first time, but this is exciting. The first raptors jersey in a long time not to follow the regular template. More info to come soon...

IMO it’s pretty bad, it kind of looks like the 70’s Sonics jerseys with the arch and inside it a non arched script

The Knicks inconsistency with the shades of Orange, Blue, and Gray they use across media is so annoying:

Look at the shading of the logo behind Hornacek vs. the one next to the score:

The blue isn't necessarily -inconsistent- but rather different based on color profiles (RGB version v CMYK v PMS etc etc)
