  1. That logo looks absolutely gorgeous as a patch!
  2. We're also seeing a lot more variety among the type of logo placed on the waist band. We have 19 secondary/partial logos, which have traditionally gone here (Hawks, Celtics, Nets, Hornets, Mavericks, Nuggets, Warriors, Rockets, Pacers, Clippers, Grizzlies, Bucks, Knicks, Sixers, Suns, Kings, Raptors, Jazz, & Wizards). But we've seen 2 primary logos (Pistons & Lakers) and 4 wordmarks (Cavs, Thunder, Magic, & Blazers), as well as a very non-traditional move by the Bulls (Chicago flag stars).
  3. Tops only. No shorts. That's why I listed them (and the Pelicans) as partial unveilings.
  4. Quick recap Official unveilings remaining: 6 (Hawks, Warriors, Lakers [partial] Heat, Pelicans [partial], Raptors) Waist band logos: 26 with, 2 without (Timberwolves & Spurs), and 2 unknown (Heat & Pelicans) Sponsor patches: 13 (Celtics, Nets, Hornets, Cavs, Nuggets, Pistons, Bucks, Timberwolves, Magic, Sixers, Kings, Raptors, & Jazz)
  5. True, but I wanted to call out the "official unveilings" when we get to see tops and shorts to both Association and Icon.
  6. Quick recap of official unveilings (* = with sponsor patch): Unveiled (14) Hornets* Bulls Cavs* Nuggets* Pistons* Pacers Bucks* Timberwolves* Thunder Sixers* Blazers Kings* Jazz* Wizards Unveil scheduled (3) Clippers (8/11) Suns (8/10) Spurs ("later this week") TBD (13) Hawks Celtics Nets Mavericks Warriors Rockets Lakers Grizzlies Heat Pelicans Knicks Magic Raptors
  7. Objectively, I like the originality of the uniform design. The color palette is great too. Subjectively, the Wolves left a disappointing amount of creativity on the table (more emphasis on green, incorporation of tree pattern, use of belt logo, etc.).
  8. I think this is a downgrade. Collar and armhole trim widened, which looks worse IMO. Also, the collar color change on the back is unnecessary and disruptive.
  9. I actually think the Jazz look as good now (2016-17) as they've ever looked.
  10. That side piping looks incomplete and just awful
  11. Odd that the wordmark is mentioned in the Icon description but not the Association.
  12. Hornets removed same-color ("tonal") wordmarks on bottom right side of Association shorts.
  13. They're still bad, but it reduces the sting to see some willingness to work with the teams' color palette so the ads are less visually assaulting.
  14. The piping on the side is now slanting backwards (probably to accommodate the new cut in the shorts) instead of completely vertical as before.
  15. Another local sponsor. Now 8/10 announced sponsors are local (Fitbit for the Wolves and Stubhub for the Sixers are not local).
  16. No-shoe photo shoot?
  17. I decided to rank my favorite NBA uniforms sets ever. I ranked these based on personal preference, aesthetic, and uniqueness. The set is intended to include the home, road, and alternate uniforms (terms nearly obsolete now). 1. Orlando Magic 1997-98 (home, road, alternate) 2. Orlando Magic 2002-03 (home, road) 3. Utah Jazz 2016-17 (home, road, alternate) 4. Toronto Raptors 2005-06 (home, road, alternate) 5. New Orleans Hornets 2012-13 (home, road, alternate) 6. Minnesota Timberwolves 2007-08 (home, road, alternate) 7. Seattle Sonics 1994-95 (home, road) 8. Washington Wizards 2016-17 (home, road, alternate) 9. Milwaukee Bucks 2016-17 (home, road, alternate) 10. Atlanta Hawks 2016-17 (home, road, alternate) Honorable mentions (in order): Orlando Magic 2016-17 (home, road, alternate) Denver Nuggets 1992-93 (home, road) Brooklyn Nets 2016-17 (home, road, alternate) Charlotte Bobcats 2011-12 (home, road) Seattle Sonics 2007-08 (home, road, alternate) Philadelphia 76ers 2005-06 (home, road, alternate) Utah Jazz 2003-04 (home, road, alternate) bold = current set
  18. Makes use of the 2 LA teams' colors as the 4 borders of the rectangle.
  19. Looks like they have raised numbers and chest lettering. No alternate.
  20. I love your Hawks concepts! I think the Thunder unis are pretty good too. I really like your Clippers primary logo. I'm concerned your Clippers secondary logo is too similar to the Pelicans' secondary.
  21. YES! I'm glad somebody cares enough about the visual identity to clean it up. I love the Jazz's look (slightly biased), but the minor imperfections bothered me.
  22. Pelicans getting a new court? Per Zach Lowe at Grantland
  23. This looks amazing! Very nice work. The Kings had to go and straighten out their crown secondary and mess this up for you.
