  1. I just saw this too. At least if it is Chase, it'll color coordinate well with the jerseys I guess (tho I wonder what they'll do with it on the blue jersey). Also, didn't realize how big the Nike Swoosh was till now. Yeesh.
  2. Now that I think about it, there are actually quite a few Hall of Famers (and other notable, retired All-Stars) from the last decade-ish, that made their mark whilst playing for multiple teams, and when I try to picture them in my mind, there's not really one consistent jersey I see them wearing everytime: Jason Kidd - He definitely had his best years as a Net, but when I checked, he actually played about the same number of games with the Mavs too, along with a significant chunk with the Suns. Dikembe Mutombo - He never really stayed anywhere for that long. I intermittently picture him in a Nuggets vs Hawks vs Rockets vs even 76ers jersey. Charles Barkley - Suns vs 76ers vs even Rockets partially just because of how bad those pajama striped jerseys were. Dennis Rodman - I remember the first time I became aware of him was when he was on the Spurs so I see him wearing that vs Bulls vs Pistons (to a lesser extent mainly b/c he looked so different back in his Detroit days) Mitch Richmond - Despite his short time with them, I picture him as much in a Warriors (thanks to the Run TMC days) and Bullets jersey as I do in a Kings one. Glen Rice - He's a Hornet or Heat in my head Detlef Schrempf - Pacers vs Sonics Horace Grant - Magic vs Bulls Latrell Sprewell - Warriors vs Knicks
  3. Man, I completely forgot about that stop for Shaq. Although he was objectively his most iconic with the Lakers, because he ended up making notable-enough stops with so many others teams, in my head, he's one of the few superstars that doesn't really "belong" to any one team. Similarly, Ray Allen, Vince Carter, and Tracy McGrady are kind of like that for me. I distinctly remember their stops with multiple teams, so no matter how short, I can picture them wearing multiple jerseys and have them "fit."
  4. Probably right after Dirk retires, or if they're able to draft/trade/sign a new franchise player
  5. Been awhile since I've seen so many teams represented in one pic. Makes me realize how many teams have a "V-neck collar" nowadays vs the older "wide neck/circular" [like the Knicks and Celtics] opening. And then there are still a couple teams with that weird wishbone/notched collar [like the Lakers, Mavs] that just remind me of the '00s.
  6. Yeah, I've notice a lot of these new Nike jerseys have a bunch of mix 'n match elements to them. Different colored wordmarks vs numbers, differing trim colors and patterns, cutoff/early tapered striping, etc. It's like they couldn't decide on a set pattern so decided to combine all of them. I'd like a lot of them so much more if they just made small tweaks in consistency. Instead it feels like designs by committee with every designer wanting to leave their mark.
  7. In a vacuum, I like the jerseys. Just not necessarily for the Wolves. I know they changed their color scheme, but it doesn't feel very "timberwolves-y" especially without the green. Looks like a a fashion jersey for the Mavs from the PDiddy jersey days.
  8. the star logo reminds of this: maybe they can team up and cross-promote with the new Power Rangers movie haha.
  9. Yeah, it doesnt look so much as mischievous as it does "creepy and pervy," especially with the new winky face. I also like the base idea, but they have to improve it.
  10. The Disney one looks incomplete. Maybe I'm just drawing from my memory of the classic design, but it's just lacking a bunch of the towers/spires of the original. I understand you might be trying to simplify it, but the original, to me, is so iconic it's hard to not see yours as incomplete. As far as the UA one, I'm sorry to say, but in between the color scheme and the letter combination, it looks more like a LA Kings alternate. If you didn't say it was United Artists, I would've read it as just LA.
  11. I actually never liked it when they did it. I always thought it was lazy to have them in their regular jerseys. If anything, I wish they'd not only go with the same conference-based uniforms, but do like they did in the past, and made anyone who wore the same number to pick a new one. I remember in the early 90s you'd see some All Stars with different numbers just for the ASG b/c someone else got seniority or what not.
  12. It's like they're not even trying with all these new d-league team logos. They need more pride in their logo designs and hire like an outside firm like a bunch of MiLB teams seem to be doing.
  13. I think my eyes are wanting to see more than what's there b/c I'm getting some Big Ten logo vibes just from the color and the fact that my brain keeps wanting to make the "D" a combined 1 and 0

    New IHOP logo

    Oh wow,. Went on a weekend trip and saw the new logo and didn't even realize it was new until I got back. For some reason I always thought it was like that, or that it was actually an older logo.
  15. The presentation is nice enough, but when I first saw the initials I was thinking "G S" because of the slash tbh. Never would've thought the slash was for a cross until you told me (though now that i have, I can't help but see it haha). Anyway, I hope that didn't come off as Critical so much as just an observation.
  16. Where do you reside? I can tell ppl I know without TFC, I probably wouldn't even care. I guess that's kinda like the NHL in America without local teams. I live in the Deep South US nowadays, so it's all about college football down here, which doesn't help me since I went to a smaller state school without much of a sports profile. And having grown up near the NYC metro area, it was all pro sports for me, especially basketball and baseball. So there really arent many like-minded fans around me.I keep entertaining the idea of rooting for NYCFC for consistency's sake with the rest of my teams, but having not lived around there during their inception (and not likely to move back there in the future), I feel like that would be a cop out of sorts.
  17. With all the expansion, I hope to find myself a MLS follower one of these days. The big thing though is finding a team to root for first. All my other loyalties are with the NYC teams, except for football where I admit to being a rover of sorts (I've got transient rooting interests that depend a lot on the individual match ups with a few exceptions). MLS came just a little bit too late to really imprint on my childhood sports memories so that's why I never followed it although I've always been aware of it. Too bad I live in a region now without much of an organized sports presence, much less a soccer one, so my exposure is likely to remain minimal until I move again someday.
  18. what I love is how players couldn't have the same jersey number so some people had to switch like mourning did. Wish they would still do that
  19. Growing up, I used to love Pizza Hut. My family would use to go to one of those sit down Pizza Hut restaurants as a treat. Also, it was a big deal when my junior high started selling Pizza Hut in the cafeteria as it was a step up from the regular food. Maybe because of the sspecial settings I had it in, but I felt Pizza Hut tasted great back then. But then sometime around college I felt there was a big drop off in quality. For all I know it could've just been the fact that I ate it a lot more back then, but to this day, I kinda get a mix of nostalgia while cringing a little bit when I see Pizza Hut.Dominos is actually pretty good nowadays, while Poppa Johns is hit or miss for me. The only redeeming factor is their garlic sauce.
  20. The Nets are having one as well. One thing I noticed is rookie Bojan Bogdonavić has the accent on the c in his name: But Mirza Teletović didn't have it on his last season: Haven't been able to find a Teletović photo from today showing if he has one now or not. Didn't really care too much when the NBA logo was moved to the back, but seeing it on an actual jersey makes me hate it. Especially on the Nets jersey, it makes the whole thing look so generic.
  21. Seriously. I couldnt tell it was the Dallas skyline at first look without Reunion Tower.
  22. Pardon my ignorance, but what's wrong with Clear Channel/i heart radio? I use that app from time to time on my phone because it offers a couple stations from back home that I don't get locally after I moved.
  23. Part of me would like to see each Finals team adopt the soccer tradition of adding stars to represent their number of past championships on their Finals logo, sorta like how the All Stars got a patch(es) on their warmup gear to show how many ASG they've been in a couple years back. Granted it could get unwieldy for some teams like the Lakers and celtics, but I figure they can put the stars in a circle pattern.
  24. Nope, gotta go with the Darks at Home side. I mean, why shouldn't the home team get to wear their colors in their own arena?
  25. If you hadn't had mentioned those were your initials, I would not have guessed it, and even when you did, it still took me awhile to figure it out on the plain black ones. I'll echo many of the other posters and say that your avatar logo is much more recognizable, though you could probably do to update it a little.
