  1. My guess is that the league will treat the new Sonics much the same as they did the Hornets - OKC would be considered an "expansion team" that started in 2008, and the Sonics would officially be "deactivated" from 2008 - whenever they get a new team.
  2. Beautiful event? Maybe if they'd got the throwbacks right, but these look more like the late 80s version of that uniform than the ABA incarnation.
  3. Hmmm... "Blow" our minds? You heard it here first, next year the heat will have sparkly white uniforms to celebrate the city's long history of coke trafficking!
  4. That's why Marques Johnson had FNOB, the Bucks also had Mickey Johnson on the roster - he too wore FNOB. It's not quite the same, but in the 1980 All-Star game there were 4 Johnsons - Dennis, Marques, Eddie and Magic. Each player had their first initial before their surname, except Magic - he had "E.M.".
  5. Milwaukee's reluctance to wholeheartedly embrace the Irish Rainbow is possibly the most disappointing thing about the whole City uniform debacle.
  6. Clippers used to use a script "Los Angeles" on their road jerseys, back in the late 80s. I've got a picture somewhere of a prototype Lakers jersey from the early 70s with "Los Angeles" wordmark. If I can find it I'll post it, it didn't look good from what I remember.
  7. The original Charlotte Hornets logo. Saw it on a t-shirt when I was 10, fell in love with the logo and colours and decided on the spot that they were going to be the team I supported. 30 years on and I still love that logo,even the team has caused a fair bit of anguish...
  8. I always hated the US Champion replicas, so cheap and inaccurate. The Euro replicas were so much better, made with heavier mesh and with sublimated graphics that were 99% identical to the actual jerseys.
  9. Apropos of nothing, but it really annoys me that those Nets unis are called "tie-dye" when it's nothing like a tie-dye design. It's more of an airbrushed pattern, I'm assuming in reference to the numerous airbrush artists that little the Jersey boardwalks.
  10. The Hornets have never had pinstripes on the shorts, only the jerseys. So at least they're consistent.
  11. That teal uniform (home? road? Does that even mean anything anymore) looks way too bland, the wordmark and numbers would look much better in purple trimmed with white. In fact, there needs to be more purple all around - when you think of the Hornets (in as much as anyone ever thinks of the Hornets) you think teal and purple, not teal and white.
  12. It's worth mentioning that this was done ahead of the Brooklyn move some years back and as such the tip of the "I" points to the location of Barclays Center, rather than Nassau Coliseum. But otherwise it's a simple mod that most people wouldn't even notice.
  13. The Hawks finally look like the Hawks again. Reminds me of the various sets used from 1974 - 1982, particularly the '78-'82 unis. I like it.
  14. Let's hope they actually get the number font correct this time. Last time they wore the green throwback they used the wordmark from 1980-91 and the number font from 91-92 and it looked like :censored:e.
  15. Is it? There wasn't a price listed when I looked. That makes sense, although for £100 I think I'll still give it a miss and just customize my '86 Sand Knit replica.
  16. Been waiting for M&N to make this for years, but if they're not going to get it right I'll take a pass. The '89 jerseys were a knit material, not mesh, and the names and numbers were screen printed, rather than sewn (plus the NoB was on a nameplate, not direct-sewn). They got it right when they made the '84 jersey some years back, so it's frustrating to see the lack of effort on this one. If I'm spending the equivalent of $400 on a jersey, it needs to be as close to the original as possible.
  17. Are you new here? "Petty as hell" could be the tagline for this hobby.
  18. I'm pretty sure that I was the first person to post about the Jazz wearing those unis, many many years ago (the pic you posted was one of a few screen grabs I made from that game and sent into Uni Watch)! Regarding the Hawks, they wore both blue and green unis interchangeably on the road from 1970-72, so I guess they'd have been considered the first true alternate unis. There had been teams that had worn multiple road unis in a season, but that was more a case of wearing one set for half a season, then switching to a new set (similar to how the Pittsburgh Penguins changed from blue to black & gold unis in midseason 1980). There's one more team that wore alternate unis prior to 1994 - from 1983-84 the San Diego Clippers wore both red and blue road uniforms roughly an equal number of times.
  19. When 3rd uniforms were introduced for the 1994-95 season they were worn almost exclusively on the road. The only time I recall a team wearing a coloured alternate uni at home was in 1994, when the Hornets had special dispensation from the league to debut the purple alts at home vs. Orlando (who wore their white home unis). Interestingly, the Hornets had done this once before - for the final home game of their inaugural season they wore their teal road unis against the Bucks, who wore white.
  20. Nah, they should have some candy apple grey unis as a tribute to Hüsker Dü.
