  1. Th Pistons' court should have red keys, I see no reason why have them unpainted like that. I like everything else about it.
  2. That abbreviation didn't look or sound good to me at all, on the other hand.
  3. I don't get this trade for the Grizzlies player-wise and they are barely getting even value with that 10th pick in return, since Valanciunas is better than Adams, and they don't need Bledsoe. Now I see rumors that Bledsoe will be shipped elsewhere and they're not done with this deal yet, so we'll see.
  4. That's why I put it in quotation marks just referring to them the same way it was done prior to me. There's no point whatsoever in them being actual airport codes anyway. As long as the abbreviation works, and MINN works better than well.
  5. I always loved the "airport code" wordmarks and still do, especially for teams it worked well for, starting from the early PHX then ATL, and the recent MINN that the Wolves had. It had the balance of being cool while totally recognizable as a location. One that doesn't work nor look or sound good at all is the CHA for the Hornets.
  6. I don't hate this new look, but I loved the green and red color scheme and that identity and it's still superior to me when I see it now.
  7. The net side pattern was a unique and distinctive detail for the Nets the addition of which would make their current uniforms already decent. They should've kept it.
  8. Can't agree on the Thunder brand, since I don't like that moniker for a team to begin with, but there sure are endless cool opportunities to depict that brand. The Nets, on the other hand, I don't even get it how they went with such an identity in the first place. What makes it even more ridiculous, is how it was marketed all over the place that it was designed by Jay-Z's team.
  9. Maybe they could've put the pixel gradient in the paint like the Jazz did with this years' Redrock court? I would've liked it that way.
  10. I'm tired of seeing the black Suns' court, when their updated primary court was so nice. Also, their purple uniforms are the nicest set of theirs color wise, and it's wrong they're not wearing it at all in favor of the Valley.
  11. A white version of the Bucks Earned uniform could be easily made with green antlers, wordmark and numbers and using cream in place of black. The deer and its antlers are green in their logo anyway.
  12. I've really come around on the Hawks unis considerably since their introduction, set aside the black, which I liked the most from the beginning. Maybe it's Trae being that character that NBA has long lacked, maybe it's the beautiful proper color combo with actual yellow, maybe it's both. The Suns' Valley unis I'm not a fan of, on the other hand. There's still too much going on and looks minor-leagueish.
  13. He was also free to sign with whatever team and join whichever stars, it doesn't make it any less weak a move. He could've easily let them know he wasn't coming back.
  14. The problem with LeBron's Decision was not as much the fact that it was televised or that the "Big Three's" contacts' expiration coincided with each other, rather than him not keeping Cleveland informed of his intentions until the last minute, for them to be able to make appropriate and suitable moves in time with his departure in mind until it was late. Then, sure, there was the fact that he joined with two other stars on one team...
  15. I totally share that sentiment.
  16. Total fiasco. --- What comes to the Jazz identity, I never cared for the note look and it's the representative of total "whatever" in the NBA. Not poor quality like the Nets or Thunder, but as uninspiring as they come. Unlike the Mountain era, which had strong personality. FWIW, their sleeved jersey was one of the very few exceptions that was interesting and really worked.
  17. This is exactly how I felt from the start, when that template was introduced first in white. It does work best with gray, though, to me.
  18. Agree with this. It is too beautiful and an obvious choice to not have it in use. Don't care about the OKC brand in general..
  19. Strongly disagree on everything about those sets. Moreover, I was glad they won it in the black alternates, as bizarre as they were, it was better than everything else they wore at the time.
  20. Before sticking with something, the Cavs first need to land on something all-around solid, and the last time that was, was the first LeBron era identity and set.
  21. Agree on all accounts, except the Rockets' logo monogram is still top-notch.
  22. Orlando did the galaxy pattern in a similar way, while not exactly sublimated, and it was a success and well-received. Their T-Mac era's gorgeous sublimated star pattern unis are still one of the best to this day to me. It can be overdone if everyone starts doing it, but given how well it worked for the Magic then, I've wondered why it was barely done at all afterwards. There's definitely room for that in the league.
  23. Still better than the graffiti City ones from a year ago. That texture is actually nice, and the minty green shade compliments it rather well. In a world of fashion uniforms (which comprises half of the game uniforms nowadays), I like it. EDIT: Moreover, if the wordmark and numbers were that green solid color, those would be some kickass game unifroms. Would make a good color combo for the Mavs. Fresh, but still appropriate.
  24. Maybe, but putting him in comparison after TT and JaVale does not sit right. He was an All-Star the season just before LeBron was drafted, and then again the year after that.
  25. Even Big Z? Ilgauskas was an All-Star even before LeBron came to the league, compared to TT and JaVale, who never have with or without LeBron.
