Well that’s a shame...

No it isn't, the Pistons have been a red, white, and blue team dating back to their days in Fort Wayne all the way back in 1941. The teal was an embarrassment for a historical franchise.

Of all possible pictures, why would you post Kobe in a Knicks uni?

There's a reason it only lasted 5 years (1996-97 until 2000-01.)

They look washed out in those pics:

 

 

Not sure why people feel the need to make an issue out of something so trivial.

They look washed out in game action but look great in a photo shoot and/or photoshopped? Does that sound like a really strong argument to you?

 

When you Google image search "knicks orange jersey", the Kobe photoshop doesn't even come up, so apparently you wanted to find that picture, rather than it being random.

Does the color in those two photos look the same as the video I posted?

 

Uniforms frequently look washed out in game action photos:

This is what it should look like:

Common sense tells you a bright orange uniform would be garish, but somehow these worked. I understand why a lot of people didn’t like them, but they look good IMO.

If only teams played 82 games in a photo studio without bright lighting, amirite? Then all the photos would be perfect. 

 

The lighting in the video you posted isn't great.  It's all based on shadowing.

Watch a Knicks game and tell me which of these is more representative of the uniform:

I never understood the Knicks' orange jersey curse; it isn't like they play any better when wearing their blue or white jerseys.

Superstition. Maybe it's harder to see the ball when it's similar to the color of the jersey of the person who's passing it to you.

The orange Knicks jerseys were terrible... the gray around the wordmark sticks out like a sore thumb, while it's barely visible on the collar.

 

Anyway, Houston badly needs a rebrand or least a uniform change. The original versions of these jerseys (03-10, with the shimmer) were excellent. The materials swap in 2010 ruined them by changing the number font, removing shimmer, and screwing up the proportions. I'm shocked that they survived another materials swap, now they're the worst jerseys in the league by far.

1 hour ago, who do you think said:

Agree. Nike's attempt to translate the Rockets' jersey to their template went wrong in every way. They literally look like they're wearing K-mart level generic knock-offs out there - it's embarrassing. I don't care what colours Houston go with but they really need to build uniforms from scratch. Forgetting the switch to Nike as well, those uniforms are horribly dated too.
