Damn you're making me regret not adding team shoes to this series. May add shoes in the end!

The rest of the Southeast Division has been added right before the end of the holiday!:

 

Charlotte Hornets: A hornet shape, wings and stinger included!

Miami Heat: Flaming hot from the pants up (inspired by the Magic's City jersey)

Washington Wizards: A wizard's robe, simple enough...

Next up: the Western Conference!

That stinger is so well placed! 

 

I also feel like every Heat player should have Guy Fieri iced tips to go with that amazingly horrible jersey. 

 

Keep up up the awesome work!

Not sure about the Wizards robe, it may need to tapper off a little bit instead of going straight down.

Small niptuck...the Hornets jersey needs a number on the front.

Agreed.  And, perhaps, a hood in the back?  I'm not sure if the robe needs embroidery, astrological symbols, etc. -- something else to connote wizardry.  Perhaps a magical-looking brooch, e.g, an Eye of Agamotto.  

 

You could also add a white beard down the front. 

 

I'm digging the series overall.  :)

After hearing some CC for the Wizards jersey, I decided to redo the Wizards design, changing the coat design to look more crazy, reduced the color scheme down to just three, and extended the robe down to the pants. I believe this is a notable improvement and hope y'all do too!

NBA rules does not force teams to feature a uniform number on the front like the NFL, so its not necessary and I felt it would clutter the uniform more than it already is.

The Southwest Division has been started!

 

Denver Nuggets: Giant gold nugget anyone?

Oklahoma City Thunder: Accepted the challenge of trying to do it without lightning: pseudo-succeeded...

Finishing the rest of the Northwest soon! Again, comments and CC encouraged!

Honestly a sublimated wolf fur pattern on Minnesota's grays could be really cool...at the very least it would make the uniform set even somewhat interesting.

As promised, here are the last two of the Northwest uniforms!

 

Portland Trailblazers: Davy Crockett jackets anybody?

Utah Jazz: Made it as fun and outlandish as the genre itself!

Really missed an opportunity to use a “jazz paintings” print for Utah. Google Jazz Paintings. They’re vibrant.

Sorry it took a little while, been busy this weekend, but here is the start of the Pacific Division with:

 

Golden State Warriors: Used a greco-roman based chest plate and shorts for the armor design

Love the Jazz; it’s like some bad pajamas. Oh man that Hornets one is borderline cringeworthy though, with a stinger right where the crotch is, zing!

This uniform makes me miss Thunder.

After a little break, I give you the next team in this series:

 

Los Angeles Lakers: Inspired by the look of the South Bay G-League Affiliate, the Lake is prominent, featuring the old Laker powder blue

Some west coast sunset there with the yellow over the water. It could be a lake, but really we know it’s the ocean right?

Wow - that Laker set could actually work as a legitimate alternate or something. It’s abstract enough to work without coming off intentionally cheesy like the other unis in this series. Well done!

 

of course if you wanna make it cheesy, just throw in a bunch of palm trees and an orange sun and some sailboats.

Los Angeles Clippers: Hard to make a jersey a Clipper, but ya know ship happens :)
