Solar Bears to wear Orlando Magic crossover jerseys

Recommended Posts

The Orlando Magic Facebook page says that the Solar Bears will wear these when they play at Amway Arena tomorrow night.  The page is also doing a jersey giveaway, which I think ends pretty soon.

This looks great and I really hope that more teams will do this. I'd like to see the Big 4 do crossovers like this often, but that may be a pipe dream.

You won’t see it in the Big Four because those teams are competitors (except in the case of shared ownership, and even then to an extent). 

 

We like to think of all our teams as brothers in sport, united in the goal of representing our fair city.  But in truth, they are bitter competitors who resent each other’s success and compete fiercely for fan dollars.

Wish they’d replace the basketball logo with a puck, seems weird to see a basketball on a hockey jersey.

The hockey team's marketers (and likely the basketball team's execs) are obviously aware that the 90s look is far more popular than any of the 21st century uniforms, but the Magic can't go back to the exact same look because of NBA rules.

The Sharks have done it with warmup jerseys

The Magic and Solar Bears are owned by the same guy, so that makes it a whole lot easier to make that type of crossover happen for a real game.  It'll never happen in any of the major leagues outside of warm ups, though, even if teams were owned by the same guy.

 

The Ducks have also done the warm up crossover and the Blues a couple of times.  The Cardinals returned the favour for battling practice.

Unpopular opinion I guess...

 

These “crossovers” don’t work.

Only because they're using practice jerseys. If they made a jersey set to look like the jerseys of the team honored they'd look a lot better.
