Oh, you think there is hate and bashing of Nike now? Just wait until the Cavs uniform leaks/is unveiled...

 

Also, tip of the hat to @the_Raptors_king....

Damn it all to hell.  I was hoping for a Feather-C version for the classic look.  I forgot the Cavs are a trainwreck dumpsterfire.

So my understanding is that now a team can designate any jersey to be their "Home", and then the "Away" is just which jersey the other team wants to wear that contrasts. So if The Celtics chose green as their "Home" jersey, Chicago could go with either red or white when visiting Boston.

 

If the Celtics chose white as their "Home", Chicago could go with either red or black.

 

As a fan of color matchups, I really hope teams pick a color jersey as their "Home".

 

I wouldn't be surprised if the Wizards pushed their red unis (even though I prefer their whites).  The Leonsis-owned Caps love to push their "Rock the Red" slogan for home games.

There's a lot of talk about seams and hems designed to allevaite irritation, but is it a big deal when 99% of the players wear padded undergarments?

I'm more annoyed at the fact that the descriptions talk about how the crown is now at the waistband (because "we are all kings"), yet none of the photos give you a clear view of the waistband.  <_<

 

EDIT:  ah, I see others have posted photos that show the waistband.  I withdraw my complaint.  :)

The lakers already have a pretty set rotation with the gold, purple, white, and black that they seem happy with I wonder if they will replace any of them?

I'm afraid all the community jerseys are going to have hokie nicknames on them: Buzz City, Motor City, etc. I've heard rumors of a Loud City jersey for OKC, which would fit this theme.

I'm generally against those nicknames, agreed.  That said, if the Wizards break out a "Chocolate City" jersey, they can take all of my money.

Going back to when Adidas took over, what was the reason why they couldn't continue with this number font for the Grizzlies?  I can't find the source

the line going through the number would not have worked with the new mesh material adidas used with the new rev 30 jersey style

I also remember there being a rule implemented that banned "non solid" numbers (Stanford early 2000s). Or was that an NCAA rule?

The implementation of the rev30 template. Adidas couldn't put the line through the mesh in the numbers. The hawks lost a highlight on their numbers too

My hope for the Sixers:

Association: White

Icon: Blue

(And don't touch the current white or blue jerseys at all. They're perfect the way they are...)

The Athlete's Mindset: if possible the 1967 blue throwback

The community: Red

Classic Edition: The AI era black, gold and red 

 

Actually, now that I'm thinking of it, Is there anything preventing a team from using a throwback design for the Athlete's Mindset or the community jersey?

Grizzlies and Thunder need to be first in line for total revamps, bush-league looks.

 

The Mavericks have been hogging the first spot in line for the last several years. They don't seem to want to give it up, either.

The Grizzlies are actually ok.  Teal and black will probably return at some point though.

According to Adande on Around the Horn, the Bucks Moncrief era rainbows are coming back as a throwback???  Wonder where he got that info from?
