NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone else caught this, but in the side panel of the Cleveland jersey is what appears to be the Cavs' shield logo. Interesting placement, if that is indeed what it is...

I don't understand that Sixers color....makes sense for the cream for the Bucks (which I love, but I wish they did something more fun than just the logo) but why is Philly going with a sorta off grey/white? Sixers unis have been kinda disappointing. Their last jersey set was way better. I'd keep the white as is, red saying Philly and the blue saying Phila. Fourth jersey outta be some sort of jersey (maybe white?) with the liberty bell on it, maybe have Ben Franklin on the shorts (but that may be a bit too zaney lol).

Like I said before, since Nuggets dumps Rainbow jerseys this a really good equivalent of them. I'd even say this is better than their Statement jersey.

Instead of debuting the new City uniforms to go along with the liberty bell center court logo, the Sixers are actually just wearing blue tonight:

They really need to stop with this blue at home thing... it looks ridiculous with all the blue on the court especially since they got rid of the college lines and red trim.

I don't mind the blue at home. I mind the the fact the Raptors aren't wearing their red jerseys that more than contrast against the 76ers.

Plus the white jerseys are much superior. A top 5 jersey in the league

In collaboration with Nike and inspired by the storied history that shaped a movement and the City of Memphis, our 2018 ‘MLK50’ City Edition uniform will support the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel’s remembrance of the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination and is set to debut at the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration game on January 15 vs. the Los Angeles Lakers in a nationally-televised game on TNT.

The story behind the uniform’s design dates back to February 1, 1968, when two Memphis Sanitation workers, Echol Cole and Robert Walker, were crushed to death by a malfunctioning garbage truck. This tragic flashpoint aggravated by years of dangerous working conditions, poverty level wages, and unequal treatment led black sanitation workers to strike. Their demand for human dignity would coin the slogan ‘I Am A Man’ and eventually bring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Memphis weeks later to march alongside protestors. It was on that trip that Dr. King was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel on April 4, 1968.

The uniform’s story, stark use of color, iconic type and design is intended to shine a national light on the events that led up to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the tragic event itself and to support the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel’s drive to deepen our understanding of the ongoing movement forward for social justice that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. defined in life and in death.

 

This is the true essence of what these jerseys are meant to be. I love them and the story behind them.
