I agree with you about those old Bullets uniforms. They worked at the time, but I would NOT want to see them become their regular uniforms today. But I liked the wordmark from their gold alternates. Ideally, that is the wordmark I would like to see. In fact, I think their current wordmark is probably the biggest problem with their current regular uniforms.
I remember on the original thread there was an argument about whether the leaked logo on the jacket was a different font or not; I thought the font was a little different and I remember it as resembling the logo on the gold alts.
I think I like the current wordmark better...the other one looks a little too regular somehow, like some font from MS Word.
I also think the r/w/b stripes is the way to go, because that is what the Bullets identity was. With no stripes, it's just another r/w/b team and doesn't even feel connected to the Bullets IMO. Without the stripes it doesn't even feel like the Bullets identity (which is why the '88-90's uniforms were awful to me. They looked more like sixers unis.)
