  1. I think this would’ve been a good time to revert to 1998’s ASG as well, and just have players wear their team specific Home or Road uniforms. It would be great to see again. As far as the court for this year’s game, it’s decent. It makes me think of the court from the 2018 game, or at least the baseline designs seem to callback to it for me.
  2. Feelings on the Incoming Earned Jersey Leaks: Not feeling that for the Sixers. The black trim around the Liberty Bell in blue is very off-putting, as is the idea of having the numerals lay right on top of the bell. It's like they ran out of "good" ideas for Philly, when there are tons (This picture does make me think about what if the 76ers decided to replace white with creme. I think they could make it work, appropriately). The Heat one, I actually like. (Cue the boos for the unpopular opinion) I'd actually like to see the inline stripe be red within the side panel striping. The Nets one just doesn't do it for me, mainly the pattern. I feel it's too visible, as opposed to the herringbone on the City jersey; I feel it was implemented better there. Also, I'd say the pattern found on the collar doesn't provide a clean pairing with the pattern found on the jersey. The Raptors one is utter garbage. It just feels so uninspired and slapped together. Like they were so exhausted of hearing about purple being missed in the color scheme, and they gave us a reason to frown at this iteration to quiet the noise. The Jazz one is nice, but I think the Kelly Green is too bright, to a point where it clashes with the yellow. I think if they were to darken the shade of green, like in the pictures found under @Shadojoker post, I'd like it even more.
  3. Jacksonville should just do what the Bucs just did. Just revamp their prime 2000s look and call it a day. Their current set is entirely too drab and void of any character. Previous set had the helmet ruin the entire set. Before that, another drab set that was void of any gold and it included piping. But, the helmet finish was the greatest thing that came out of it.
  4. I really wish Jackson State would retire that logo and hire someone to get them some proper logos to utilize. Until then, they should be using the "JSU" from this update they made some time ago.
  5. One thing that comes to mind for the printable graphics, have you considered finding a space to place final scores in the information section?
  6. I’d suggest installing some silver into Jackson State’s look. Maybe some S/W/S striping on the navy helmet and pants, and N/S/N on the white helmet and pants. Then for their road basketball units, I’d flip the word mark & numeral colors for legibility purposes. I wish the Tigers would use their updated Academic logo, in place of their old block logo. Alcorn looks pretty solid, and how they should. Football set reminds me of the Steve McNair days.
  7. Quite the interesting mishap in the game for the Knicks tonight. Reggie Bullock had his correct jersey number of 25 on the front, but had #23 on the back, which is Mitchell Robinson’s number, his current teammate.
  8. On the Storm, I would rather see the word mark colors be reversed on the road jersey. As it currently stands, it’s tough to distinguish from afar. Also try the word mark in yellow with green outlines, just to see which is better.
  9. My Initial reaction to each team and their Earned sets: Brooklyn: I really like these. They went Subway-theme, a concept we've seen around here quite often. I hope the herringbone pattern (also found on their court) is darker in action, because my hope is that the smaller details stand out, like the striping found along the collar, cuffs, and striping along the jersey and shorts. Boston: I can't love these, because the double green just makes me think Bucks. Old Gold would've been a more acceptable accent color. Dallas: Meh. It's just feels like something similar to what we've seen before out of their current uniforms. The Mavs have a habit of shuffling certain pieces of their uniforms around to make "new" alternates. Remember the P. Diddy alternate that was green, then eventually it became light blue, then navy blue? Milwaukee: Out of the park. Way to go on utilizing the antlers in the fashion they did. I can excuse the limited use of black as a tertiary color here, but overall, this should pickup steam to stay in rotation after this season. Denver: I don't love it, however, I don't abhor it. I enjoy the call back to a color scheme of the past, but I'm so over the trend of using a logo in place of a team wordmark. And from what I can see in the image, the design is similar, if not the same, to their current home and road design. If it's just a recolor, then I'm just neutral on it. Houston: What's there to say? Just a recolor of their home and road. I like it better than their current black alternate, but a waste of space for a second black uniform. Houston, you have a plethora of things to work with within your identity. Los Angeles Lakers: These flat out SUCK. Once again, another black (or dark gray?) uniform for a team that doesn't need it (outside of the Kobe/City uniform). The Lore series for the City uniforms has yielded better outcomes than this. They could've gone Minneapolis Lakers themed here. L.A. Clippers: LA going 0 for 2 here. Grey, really? It's not enough to have had a White City jersey last season, only to have it inverted this season, and then proceed to make the Earned set grey? Nothing tops the City set they had for the 2017-18 season. That's where they need to be looking to. Orlando: Now we return to something that I can get behind. I love the call back to the starry pattern to the early 2000s Magic set, found in the side striping on these. I have to dock points for them using the logo on the front (see Denver), but otherwise, this is solid. Miami: At this moment, I'm leaning towards liking these more than I should. Don't get me wrong, it's a recolor of their current set, but I enjoy how this three color scheme plays upon each other. Spruce in a little red and this could've been higher on my list. These are still nice. Toronto: I wanted purple back, but not like this. This looks like they just took the purple portion, blew up the image and just plastered it right on top of a black background. Nothing about this is inspiring. Maybe when it's in motion, it'll look better. But as of today, it's a no for me, dawg. Philadelphia: Logo on the jersey, we meet again. I do like when Philadelphia goes cream, and I actually think that they should replace white with cream someday, but this Earned set is just okay. I don't like that they made the striping inconsistent by differing the waistband pattern from the rest. It's a clean look, but it's not a fun look. Portland: Going greyscale here. My only comment is that it needs some red. Utah: I like it; I appreciate that they changed up the striping on the shorts. Utah is a team that I could give a pass to when it comes to the logo on the jersey, the way the numerals are nestled with the logo makes it work. My changes to this would be to tone down the saturation on the yellow, and go with white numerals. Indiana: It's a modern rendition of the yellow alternate of the 2000s, and I like it. I really don't have much more to say on it. Oklahoma City: The double blue is nice, but if you're going to have orange accessories, why not have a bit of orange in the set to split the two blues? That's the thing I find is missing, just a little more orange. San Antonio: Typical logo on jersey look for the Spurs, which I don't like. I feel as though they could've have introduced a script or another wordmark on this set. I, also, would have liked to see the striping that's on the side of the jersey and shorts to be echoed throughout the set. Maybe they should have gone with some kind of lasso theme here. Phoenix: I want to see this one in action to determine if it's a hit or miss, because I secretly like this set. There's some things about the jersey that I would've tweaked, maybe instead of a jarring stop between the black "yolk" and the purple base of the jersey, maybe do a smooth gradient to ease its transition; I would've done a double purple, lobbying for a darker purple in place of using black again. I also don't like the inverted color profile of the logo on the waistband. The sun flare appearances are always a nice nod to the infamous 90s set, but it just doesn't eclipse (see what I did there) that look.
  10. I would say this new one is worse. Only because the Mecca-inspired city uniform gave birth to the outstanding Earned set that came after it. I miss that one so much.
  11. With a couple of alterations, I’d say the Spurs should use that Fiesta court, full-time.
  12. Better than “Talking Stick Resort Arena.” Denver could have done better though, not the greatest follow-up, behind “Pepsi Center.”
  13. Was looking around on NBA 2K21 on my PS5 this morning, and decided to screenshot a couple of new courts that we hadn't yet seen. Cleveland Cavaliers: They reverted from the gold(yellow) baselines they had while commemorating the franchise's 50th anniversary. The key area is also void of any color. Charlotte Hornets: Absolutely beautiful update to coincide with their new uniform set. The design speaks for itself. Toronto Raptors: Relatively similar to last year's court, but they've reduced the baseline text to say just "Toronto", as opposed to the entire team name. And they also have the word "North" repeat in different languages among the sideline. They’ve also incorporated the tonal chevron pattern from their alternate court, onto this one. Oklahoma City Thunder: Very clean refresh. Using white lines to mark the court seems to be the better option, in comparison to the navy they were using. They also updated the baseline wordmark.
  14. Top-Right logo; I can’t unsee it saying “NERF” instead of “NETS” at every quick glance that I make at it.
