Interesting. More than the Flo-Jo's that these are probably based off of, that gray uniform reminds me of the late 90's prototype set that Indy was considering. Especially because of the stripes. U27tFSm.png

 

Does anyone have more pictures or stories of scrapped jerseys and logos?

I already know about the Swamp Dragons. Read a nice piece on the Royals as well...

Where's the purple? Oh, they moved it to their prose.

Sorry if I missed this earlier, but do we know if OKC is keeping those navy blue Statements alts from last year in any way?

Yep...not impressed.

 

 

 

 

They use the word "ALL-NEW" ... but what they really mean is "RE-PURPOSED" 

 

This is the kind of laziness that I don't like. I get the Jazz bringing back the sunset jerseys because of how popular they were. I get having a new color of the vice jerseys for the Heat. But, this wreaks of laziness. If last year's jerseys were so popular why not stick with them one more year? 

 

Lazy. Lazy. Lazy.

The Blazers’ City set hasn’t been shown off yet, either. The one that was leaked on the LockerVision site was their Earned set, not the City set.

These jerseys being polarizing is a great thing. You see some of the people on this board shooting down any new idea that teams are trying, but browsing around social media, fans are loving them. The Bucks one, for example. Creativity hasn't been higher and I'm glad some teams are going all out. The T-Wolves one looks amazing, as are the others. And if you don't like a design? Guess what, there'll be new ones next year to change your mind. Being a fan of soccer as well, this variety is welcoming to see in the league.

I am admittedly a traditionalist, but my biggest gripe with these "City" jerseys are that most teams are vastly overusing them. The Pistons, for instance, will be using theirs 18 TIMES! That's a quarter of the freaking season (almost.) That's way, way too much. As much as I don't like a lot of these, if they were only being used a handful of times, such as Minnesota with the Prince tribute jerseys only being used 6 times, it'd be much more palatable. But 18 times is just way off the rails. Teams with iconic brands are being thrown to the wayside.

Like almost all other city edition jerseys, this is a one-year-only thing. (The Jazz received a special dispensation to run back their orange-and-red 2017-18 city editions. The Spurs also carried over last season's military-themed jersey.)

 

From Zach Lowe's article this morning about the T'Wolves' Prince jerseys

 

So we'll see these once again ...

Right. It will be that same design but in black according to the sheet going around 10+ pages back. I don't think that changes my ranking much.

You might be right, but we haven’t really had any sort of official confirmation that all of the Earned sets will in fact follow the same design as the City sets. We know Miami’s will, and now that we know the Spurs are carrying over last year’s City uniform, we know their new Earned set is just a recolored version of their City set as well. But we haven’t seen or heard anything to confirm that for the other 14 teams receiving the Earned sets yet, so I’d say it’s a bit premature to jump to that conclusion.

I thought I had read somewhere that the Sixers' earned was the cream set from last year, but now I can't find where I read it, so take that with a grain of salt...

Trying to draw broad stereotypes about this community is always the sign of a very, very weak argument.

Well that’s the problem, isn’t it? Every brand only has so many ideas. And to be frank? There aren’t thirty new good ideas per year.

 

You’re already seeing that now. Phoenix just changed some trim. Charlotte just changed out some panel designs and the numbers. Minnesota is resorting to Prince cosplay. Detroit just went “we put road striping on it.” Orlando is the exact same design from last year, minus what made it interesting. 

 

And this is only year two. These are only going to get worse and more random the longer we go with this stupid uniform system.

I have a weird feeling that in the future more City jerseys will be fauxbacks (not "Hardwood Classics") once ideas start running out. Take the Nuggets, for instance.

That would be a step up. At least then they’ll have some sort of direction. 

 

It’s no surprise that the City uniform that seems to have gotten the most love is just that- Denver’s.

This is why forcing each team to change every year (and making teams ask for "exceptions" to keep them longer) is ridiculous...

TOO MANY REVEALS! SO MUCH TO CRITIQUE!! *Brain explodes*

 

Honestly, a side from the Nuggets, Thunder and 76ers.. this year city edition were overall terrible. 

 

My Bulls is ok not bad but not awesome. Should have kept the "Chicago" script bit that's just me.
