I don't consider the current jerseys to be modernizations of the '83 set though, and I'm not sure that there's a way to argue that they are.
Oh, that's just semantics, I completely agree with you. They're only modernizations in the sense that they are literally modern in that they were introduced and used in 2010 or whatever.
Better termed walmart-izations, as they look like they were too cheap to put any trim on the wordmark or numbers.
"walmart-izations". I like that.
