Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

Recommended Posts

Leandro Barbosa has two entries for this:


Right team, wrong uniform, but right number:

And then right team, wrong uniform, wrong number, and possibly wrong haircut his 3rd time around:

EDIT: Speaking of Suns with multiple tenures, Dan Majerle in his return to Phoenix:

Saw this pic today and thought it was really weird to the Islanders dynasty players and the cup with the navy-era jerseys.DHcYN4tVoAAKCN_.jpg

Kirilenko (Wrong hair, too)

 

Wow, even I had forgotten that happened.

 

An odd random thing about AK is that even though he was a 2000's guy, his "right" uniform to me is the mountains set by far. Even the double blues don't look as right.

 

Also, I'm betting his number will be the next hanging in the Jazz rafters at this point.

It's not really weird.  It's just a darkened version of the dynasty uniforms.  Heck in some pictures the dynasty and current sometimes look navy.

Maybe this?

 

Yeah, probably. And while they'll sell a billion of those, they won't quite get to a gazillion because everyone knows he's leaving at the end of the year. It's almost like the Elway in the Nike Broncos, except I don't think James will have as happy an ending.

 

He also looks like he's playing dress-up in that photo. The new Cavs set doesn't really have any personality.

I know video games probably don't normally count, but this feels like a special case. Here's a publicity screenshot for NBA 2K18 that 2K sports posted to the game's Facebook page 2 weeks ago, featuring Kyrie Irving in the new Cavs home jersey... which now, because of his trade today, he will never wear in real life*.

Carl Crawford's final season with the Rays (2010) was the first year the team wore these light blue alternates

Crawford is one of the few 2008 Rays whose right uniform is the Devil Rays.

Mario Lemiuex in the Robo Penguin alternate jersey just doesn''t look quite right.  As a bonus, Wayne Gretzky in a St. Louis Blues' jersey.

In honour of his retirement, Shane Doan.  Only 1 year in a Jets uniform and a couple in the crap the Coyotes have now.

I'd say Doaner in a Jets jersey is just a flat out "player in the wrong uniform" scenario period since that team exists again. 

 

Although I'm hard pressed to think of which iteration of the Yotes uniform that he looks most right in at this point?

The original Jets and the Coyotes are one and the same franchise, so putting him in that thread would be wrong.  Doan has never played for the current Jets.

franchise =/= team 

 

The current Jets have worn throwbacks to those Jets and own those marks now I believe. So from a "team" standpoint they're effectively one in the same, even though the original franchise that called itself that resides in Arizona. 

 

This is the equivalent of if Ray Lewis had played a year for the original Browns before moving to Baltimore. It's just a wrong uniform at this point mostly becauuse the Browns exist again back in their original city.
