    No more sleeved jerseys a turn back to bespoke designs for teams rather than Adidas getting templatey vastly better and probably better selling All-Star jerseys than anything from the previous 15 years most of the Nike-era rebrands have been at least modest upgrades from what they replaced big improvement on designs for fan merch Also, many statement or city jerseys have been praised individually in this thread, which should be obvious -- most of the criticism toward the city program has been toward the bad jerseys, which there are more of due to the sheer volume that the program demands, and the frequency with which they're worn. "you all hate NBA jerseys now" is patently false trolling.

    The jags should be teal with black and gold accents. Any uniform that doesn't include all three should be thrown away. Stop trying to be the Raiders (black primary) or the Saints (gold and black). Be the Jags. Teal with Gold and black.

    Look, we've seen examples that you CAN have a "standardized system" AND still be different and creative... So there's no excuse. The NFL is just being lazy with these current Super Bowl logos and now, even facebook meme pages are calling it out.

    Toronto Raptors - 1995 This is my second favourite concept of the series. Partly because I'm Canadian and this is Canada's team, and partly because this uniform is just so unique and just looks awesome. I loved the purple and red era, but the red, white, and black just fits as Canada's team. The Raptors released a new black uniform this year with the pinstripes on it, but they were greyed out and partially hidden. I think this would've been a far better option for the team as an alternate. I think this one is so good, it could just stay permanently. But we all know the NBA loves to have brand new uniforms every single year.

    If these are legit, it's absolutely hilarious there is a post with the Bengals announcing their uniforms won't be unveiled this month, then an hour later, the jerseys are leaked.

    MIAMI GATORS (fictional former Cleveland Indians) - You can still bet on the Cubbies! I'll issue a spoiler warning for a pair of 31-year-old movies. If you don't like spoilers, watch the cited movies or skip to the concept. While Cleveland had a close call with relocation in the mid-'60s, 1989 would prove to be the final straw. New owner Rachel Phelps (the trophy wife of her deceased husband) set about attempting to move the team to Miami. Using an attendance clause in the team's lease and intentionally-poor performance, she tried to get attendance under 800,000.[1] While this effort failed in the main timeline, the "Biff Tannen gets the almanac" timeline created a diversion. In that history, Phelps succeeded and completed the relocation for the 1990 season. The club, now known as the Miami Gators, remained in occasional contention throughout the '90s and early '00s. The 1997 and 2007 teams, in particular, caused a stir for the rest of the AL. They even made the World Series in 2015, heartbreakingly losing to the Chicago Cubs.[2] The Gators have gone through a rebuilding period as of late, letting stars walk for little in return. At least they're not in Cleveland or the Indians anymore! Marty McFly burning the almanac voided this timeline, but what if he hadn't? Going off of just Back to the Future II, the Miami Gators' identity looked something like this: I didn't want to do a direct riff on this fan rendering/screengrab, so I set about incorporating the design language of a semi-fictional team that almost moved to Miami, Major League's Cleveland AL. Using the '95-'01 and '48 Cleveland clubs as design inspiration, I set about creating scripts and wordmarks for the uniform package. Navy and red are out, replaced by the aqua and orange of the Dolphins. The primary logo uses art deco/art nouveau influences. The shape itself references this image of a walking alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) and this mouth-open picture. The secondary is the "M" cap logo, using the Belgrad font (my "Miami font"), while the tertiary is the primary in a text roundel. Uniforms feature a cursive "Gators" script (using modified FenwayParkJF, my favorite cursive font) and a Belgrad "MIAMI" wordmark. The primary is on the sleeves, while the striping takes influence from the '48 Cleveland jerseys. The alternates include an orange and an aqua shirt. The second set of alts include an all-orange gear version of the home uniform and a "Miami-fied" version of the 1989-93 Cleveland racing stripe design. I even incorporated the head of the movie gator on the sleeve as an homage to Little Red Sambo. The jackets are pretty simple fare, with orange sleeves on the primary and the full-bodied gator/"MIAMI" wordmark on the throwback. For those wondering, I even have a reclamation/modernization of the movie gator! As seen with the Rainiers before them, the Cleveland design formula works well when applied to multiple clubs. Up next, the big attempted relocation that's torn one fanbase apart. 1 David S. Ward, Major League, Comedy, Sport (Mirage Enterprises, Morgan Creek Entertainment, 1989). 2 Robert Zemeckis, Back to the Future Part II, Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi (Universal Pictures, Amblin Entertainment, U-Drive Productions, 1989).

    The dazzle pants definitely look great on teams with metallic colors. Over the years my opinion for others has moved toward the matte. As said above, the Chiefs look better today than in those shiny pants.

Fits it well with WNBA uniforms feeling more like soccer-style jerseys than traditional basketball uniforms, what with sponsors being presented more prominently than team logos. And it wouldn't be a Seattle-based logo without the Space Needle!

    The Florida Panthers actually had claws on their gloves when they unveiled their inaugural uniforms. They were scrapped before the team took the ice.

    Every game should look this good. Take a damn hint, Sharks. You're not good enough these days for the excuse of "hem stripes are weighing us down" to be valid (not that it was ever valid in the first place; at least you didn't blow a 3-0 series lead while wearing hem stripes).

    Inspired by mcrosby's excellent NBA Moniker Carousel, I've been working on what I'm calling the MLB Ferris Wheel. The rules are fairly simple, the nickname of the team gets moved to another city and then that city's nickname gets similarly moved. This will cycle through all the 30 teams, with nicknames being placed where I could justify them making sense. All are linked together in a circle, which I will post a graphic of once I have a couple teams up. The Rockies and Phillies will be the hardest to move, so I'm allowing myself to create "equivalent nicknames" for both, which you'll see later. I also replaced Cleveland with the Montreal Expos in the cycle, which will mean that Montreal gets a new nickname and the Expos go to a new city. All clear? Let's hop to it then: First up: Los Angeles Dodgers -> Toronto Dodgers According to Wikipedia, "Toronto currently operates the largest streetcar system in the Americas in terms of track length and ridership," which makes it a natural fit for a team originally called the Trolley Dodgers. The royal blue and red color scheme come from Toronto's logo, as does the maple leaf. Two blue stripes on the sleeves and the split-style font appears in the cap T and the numbers. As for the Dodgers, direct nods include the wordmark, red number on front, the structure of the primary logo, and the block letter shaped T. The "Toronto" wordmark comes from the letters in the "Dodgers" and "Los Angeles" scripts. Any guesses for where the Blue Jays will fly to?

    To this day, I can’t look at a photo of those helmets and rationalize how in the hell they got signed off on by so many people. No one had the guts to stand up and say, “you know what guys, this looks like utter s***”?

    Carolina's inaugural unis were perfect. The original logo > the updated version. My only complaint is the existence of white pants. They need to wear silver with all three jerseys. Honestly? I find the calls for the Panthers to radically alter their look kind of frustrating. They've kept essentially the same identity since the 1990s, and it's a solid one. Here we have a modern uniform that manages to look good and not seem overdone, and it's only been ever so slightly tweaked since 1995. That should be the standard- a new team gets their look right on the first go and doesn't muck it up. Their expansion cousins in Jacksonville are perfect examples of what happens when you muck it up. The Panthers, though, are the gold standard of a new team establishing a bold new look, and making it their own through commitment to it. It's such a rarity in the Big Four that I want to see their identity stick around as long as possible.

    Minnesota Timberwolves - 1996 One of my favourite uniforms since the mid 90's. The Minnesota Timberwolves. I loved the little trees they added into the design, it added so much personality the their look. The new uniforms, just don't have that same feel anymore and I wish they used the green on the main uniforms more. Modern looks to a uniform can be great, but what the T-Wolves had, was so specific to Minnesota. Everyone knew what team it was. I chose grey just to make it different from anything else they have worn. Also, the bright green definitely works better as an accent colour, rather than a main colour. Similar to what I did with the yellow in the Grizzlies uniforms. The new logo looks cool and all, but their logo from 1996, just looks way more intimidating. An intimidating logo isn't necessary for a good brand, but it really works for the T-Wolves. Or it did work. This is one of my favourites.

    I’m about to turn 29. I grew up in the 90’s, where team brands and color schemes may have been at thier wackiest, craziest, and loudest. All those brands were, however, consistent. Home, road, and alternate uniforms all used consistent color schemes. Brand elements looked like they belonged to each other. The things you need to keep consistent in your brand were all still considered and accounted for. So despite having grown up in an era where a whole lot was on the table and explored, I also saw quite clearly that you could go all-out of the box while sticking strongly to a clear, consistent, coherent brand. My problem with the City Program has always been that it has, more than any other program, wrecked NBA branding across the board. Depending on the individual team, there’s little to no brand consistency nor much regard for it due to the influx of entirely different color schemes, fonts, and other elements that clearly differ from a team’s main (or even historical) brand and, sometimes, even overlap or can be mistaken for other teams. Even some broadcasters, like Jeff Van Gundy and Mike Breen - who watch far more basketball than most of us do - have expressed that at times they even get confused who’s who nowadays. The “anything goes” mentality may be good for $$$, but it’s ultimately not good for branding consistency. And for the record, I don’t put all the blame on Nike for this at all. Sure, there’s probably been encouragements on thier part for teams to explore and step out of the box with concepts and brainstorming, and there’s nothing wrong with the desire to do that in general. But ultimately, the final say goes to the team, who ought to be at the forefront at safeguarding and ensuring brand consistency. They have the power to go along with something different and perhaps even out-there a bit, but still draw a line somewhere and say “it still needs to be in team colors”, or “it still needs to use our proper fonts”, or even generally “okay let’s find a way to push the envelope a bit, but still stay on brand”. It’s entirely possible to try something different while making it fit within your brand’s parameters, and it’s up to the teams to show the needed restraint when necessary. Most of the teams just flat out haven’t done that, and it’s on them, not Nike.

    The issue with that aquafresh piping was that it went through so many changes under Reebok depending on what kind of template was used. And for players like MJD, he wore all three. A design function that can't translate well through different players on the same team is not good.

    The fact that there’s clearly room for the three stripes on the shoulders but Reebok chose to cut them off at the cuff annoys me extremely.

    Hi guys! So I've been away for a little but kept browsing the forum. I've been inspired by a lot of people posting their reimaginings of NBA teams like @Tore and @jb1322 (among others), and decided to give it a go! Some considerations before we start: - I'm a HUGE fan of 90's aesthetics, so some teams might incorporate elements from that era, but not in all the wilderness saw in those years - While it started as a good idea, the City Edition concept has started to run it's course. There are some amazing models (Memphis, Miami come to mind) but there's so much you can do with the story of a city. Some jerseys like Portland don't even remind me of the team they represent. So I've decided to keep it simple: Association, Icon and Statement. I'll try to keep them original enough to incorporate the team's colors, and don't fall on the BFBS jerseys seen all around the league. - I've started doing this during the pandemic, if there are mistakes in the templates please let me know. All said and done, let me present the first team: the San Antonio Spurs. As you can see, I decided to embrace the Fiesta colors fully. The script on Association & Icon is based off the Ebbets Vintage collection released some weeks ago (modified to fit into the design) and the terminations on the three straps around the jersey feature a silhouette of the iconic Alamo Mission. The Statement jersey features the script found on the City jerseys IRL, and the Alamo is more notable here. The pattern on the sides is based on the one found in the warm-up shirts used in mid 90s by the team. Let me know what do you think about it, and all feedback is welcome!

    Another Super Bowl is in the books. Congrats to Tom Brady on his 7th Super Bowl ring, now the question is can he repeat in LA next year for Super Bowl LVI? The NFL has continued to go with a templated logo for next year's big game, though there is more color and other pluses, so I guess it's a step in the right direction. In any case, I've continued with my tradition of making a Super Bowl logo of my own for next year. Below is my design for Super Bowl LVI: since the game is in Los Angeles and since it's the first game in the Los Angeles area since Super Bowl XXVII, I decided to do a Hollywood/movie theme to make the Super Bowl seem like a grand premier event. I originally had a little more details in certain parts, specifically on the palm trees, but I felt that sometimes less is more for the eye. Let me know what you think!

    Milwaukee Bucks - 1995 This is definitely the Anaheim Ducks of the NBA in terms of the reverse retro series. The Ducks put out a throwback to their crazy wild wing uniforms, with a very obvious 90's feel to it. I really wanted to include at least one insane, crazy concept in this series, and what better than this just odd uniform the Bucks wore in 1995. They only wore it for 4 seasons, really making this uniform such an oddity. I'm not sure what response to the uniform was, I never looked into it. It is weird to me that the logo looks so different from the buck they used on the uniform, but that's just the 90's I guess. The blue is the perfect colour to make this even crazier, since it's more of an alternate colour that they don't use much. I think this uniform concept is so crazy, that it just fits this Reverse Retro perfectly.

    And now they win the Super Bowl bringing back the 1997 uniforms. We can all agree it would not look right if they won them with the 2014-2019 alarm clock mess.

    Yeah no thanks to that. That's worse than what they've been wearing. Every concept I've seen is trying too hard and looks worse than what they should do, which is a Chargers-like modern revival of their classic uniforms.

    Thanks! Thanks. I have a Rangers set in Stars colors prepared that I'll post at the end of the series. Up today we have the Minnesota Twins! TWINS HOME TWINS ROAD TWINS HOME ALT TWINS ROAD ALT While @Jake3roo suggested I put the Twins in purple and gold, I opted instead for the forest green, scarlet and harvest gold colorway used by the Minnesota Wild. Something about these colors just screams “Minnesota” to me. The “Minnesota wheat” trim color is used as the base for the road uniform. C&C appreciated as always! The Marlins are on deck.

    Washington Wizards - 1997 The Wizards are one of those teams that I actually like their current look. Although, not a huge fan of the circle logo that has infected the entire league in recent years. I actually much prefer their only other primary logo in their history. The Wizards have actually put out some cool looking uniforms recently, but I think this concept would fit perfectly in as a reverse alternate.

    Using a B gives you more surface area to work with than a C does. I've yet to see a concept with a tiger striped C that looks better than the B. I've tried to create many myself and I'm a world class logo and graphic designer If I, a genius, can't crack the code then the code is uncrackable. My issue with that logo isn't that it's a B. My issue with it is that it's bland and they have better logos locked away in a vault. (see: my avatar*) *I think I'll explain the joke of my avatar here: In my early days on the boards people would critique that logo with, "the head's too small". I see now that they're not wrong, but I was a dumb brat 15 year old teaching myself illustrator and I took criticisms of my favorite team's logo personally so I made the head bigger. Way too big. That's the entire joke.
