Jordan and Pippen hated the way the material felt with the pinstripes, so the Bulls removed them as soon as they possibly could.

I remember reading about this. Can't remember where.  I like to think it was Slam Magazine but I can't be sure.  I didn't used to like the pinstriped black jerseys but without the red pinstripes they actually look awful.

Somewhere on fb I just saw a screen shot of Lebron in the black Cavs jersey which I assume is the new away. By the time I checked here to see if anyone posted it, saw no one had, and went back so I can grab a screenshot -- it disappeared. 

 

Rookie mistake - my bad. Fwiw I don't hate it as much as I thought I would from the description.

Might you be talking about this one?

If so, it's just someone's concept on 2k.

Yes that's it. Now that I look at it more, you're right. Seems to be a recolored jersey of this past template with the new font but same old numbers. Good call, upperV03!

One of my favorite "gawty,busy" uniforms of all time...too much going on but hey they won 72 games that year!

72 wins was two years prior where the stripes versions debuted.

 

They 'slumped' to only 62 wins in Jordans last year with solid black.

Something doesn't make sense.  72 wins was in 1995-96.  This Jordan (clearly wearing pinstripes) vs. Kobe clearly wasn't 95-96, and judging by the gold NBA patch, it was 96-97.  So how many years did the pinstripes last?

 

I think 95-96 (72 wins) = red and white

96-97 = red, white, and black pinstripes

97-98 = red, white, and black with no pinstripes.

I think 95-96 (72 wins) = red and white

96-97 = red, white, and black pinstripes

97-98 = red, white, and black with no pinstripes.

The black pinstriped uniforms debuted in '95/96, with the regularly colored NBA logo, and were then worn again in '96/97, except with the gold NBA logo for the league's 50th anniversary. They switched to the non-pinstriped (and greatly inferior) versions for '97/98, and those only lasted for that one season. Sadly, every new regular black alt they've introduced since '97/98 have been devoid of pinstripes, despite their enormous popularity for the two seasons they were worn, and still today.

 

'95/96:

'95/96:

 

 

But if the material irritated Jordan and Pippen so much, it's odd they continued to wear them multiple occasions the second year.

The 96/97 picture still has the pinstripes. Look closely at Jordan's left leg. It's still there.

The pinstripes were sublimated, so why would it bother them

As I recall, half of their 8 road losses from that season occurred while wearing the pinstriped alternates.

 

Magic, Sonics, Suns, and Knicks are the opponents that I can confirm since I've seen actual game footage of those 4 road games. I believe the other 4 road losses (Raptors, Heat, Pacers, and Nuggets) occurred while wearing their red primaries.

 

i heard that the pacers beat them twice that year, could be wrong

Additional confirmation from an OKC scribe that the Thunder are dropping the Sunset "OKC" alternate. Additionally, looks like the Thunder are adding two alternates next year to complement their white home and Oklahoma blue away.

Man...the sunset unis are my favorite of their current set.

 

Would be cool to see a navy uni with predominantly-orange accents (and a little white thrown in as well). Let's hope there won't be a yellow alternate uni, lol.

I'd imagine thats either a second white and an orange or a second navy and an orange...

The only acceptable NBA pinstripes.
