  1. I'm back after playing a lot of Civilization 6 on my pc . Up next we have the Capital City GoGo. I 100% copied this from @Krz but I have his consent. Using the DC flag as stripes was just perfect. Washington's jerseys (current and previous) are inspired by the USA flag and the G League affiliate's should be taken from the capital city flag. There's quite a lot going on in the chest area but I'd say it's the same with the Wizards. These might be a slight upgrade than its NBA counterparts because of the font. I really don't like the Wizards' font. Or the Wizards name.
  2. Thanks to @qckgnc's tip, here is Birmingham Bayhawks! Based on a google search, I learned that bayhawks are actually ospreys, which can be found in Alabama. I don't think there are a lot of them in Birmingham, but what the heck. The name has a nice ring to it. If you guys have a better idea for a team name please post them on the comments. Now to the jerseys. It is an update on the New Orleans Jazz threads with Bayhawks text. I never really liked the Pelicans branding and everyone loves the Mardi Gras colors. Switching to them as primary instantly makes better uniforms.
  3. Hey kababayan, I was supposed to use the 90's Wolves colors and forgot to change the green to neon haha. I'll try the set with the current green to see how it looks. The font used is GarnetCapitals-Black. I search in What The Font to find similar fonts .
  4. Thanks Mr. CLT! What's your idea for a Hornets rebrand? @Seadragon76 As promised, here is Iowa Energy. I combined the current branding with the Garnett era jerseys. Instead of trees, the north pointing arrow is used for the pattern. It actually kind of looks like jolts of energy so it fits! I like the Wolves's colors but I really don't like their uniforms. They should be using more of the green and the arrow (which was hyped prior to their unveiling). So to me, this set is an upgrade.
  5. @qckgnc The last of the pinstriped Eastern conference teams is the Greensboro Swarm. Again, it's a simplified/modernized version of a classic. Greensboro actually uses gray and black as base of its uniforms but I couldn't really talk myself into using gray. The black one looks good though. Black Hornets jerseys always had some gimmick that felt tacky to me. I would love it for Charlotte to fully embrace the stripes again so I like these more than the NBA parent club's set.
  6. It's hard to balance the colors and follow the Bulls template because it went from a 3 color set () to a 4 color one (). The first row has trims very similar to the Bulls with black strips in between the middle and outer rings. The second row has black on the trims. For the third row, the wordmark and number is black. You can just switch red jerseys from the last row and the original post. Personally, I still like my original post the most.
  7. Guess what team I'll be posting next after this . Oohh I didn't know that they were moving the Bayhawks to Birmingham. Thanks for the info . Because all of us are watching The Last Dance, it's just appropriate to post the Windy City Bulls! I changed the color scheme to that of the Chicago flag and applied striping to all the uniforms. The diamonds on the shorts were removed since Austin has them already. I really like Windy City's wordmarks because they look like the Bulls's classic font with horns. Overall, I like how it turned out. Windy City now has a unique yet familiar identity.
  8. Just finished 'em. They'll be the third post after this one. But I'm thinking of renaming them back to Energy. What do you think? Next, we have another Eastern team in stripes - the Lakeland Magic. The design is an updated version of the original striped jerseys. I paired the classic wordmark with the current numbers to tone it down a bit (but not as toned down as Orlando's jerseys). I also mimicked the color mismatch of the wordmark and numbers from the 90's unis. Lakeland apparently wore jerseys similar to this during a 90's Night promotion.
  9. You're right. I'm probably dropping the color vs. color idea in this G League series. Then I'll add a fourth jersey so it evens out on instagram I was supposed to post Santa Cruz and OKC concepts for the rest of the Western Conference powerhouses but wasn't really feeling what I came up with. I'll pivot instead to a couple of Eastern Conference teams. First up is @timberwolf's very own Raptors 905. The design is a simplified version of the Raptors' inaugural set. Kept a red jersey as a nod to Canada and Toronto/905's current identity. Another pet peeve I have with the G League jerseys is the use of only current NBA numbers (which don't match the wordmarks!) so I fixed it up here. These are definitely more than Toronto's current uniforms.
  10. Next we have another Western Conference Dynasty G League team - the Austin Toros. Austin should've kept their old team name tbh. The color scheme obviously came from the Spurs's fiesta branding, with the teal uniform reminiscent of the 1996 San Antonio All Star Game uniform. It kinda looks like my Grand Rapid Drive concept, but hey it looks good - very 90's Grizzlies-y. Wordmarks used are from the previous Spurs jerseys and finally the diamond sides are inspired by the George Gervin uniforms. I have no idea why the Spurs keep on recycling their camouflage city jerseys when they could be putting out something like this. Easily one of my favorites from my G League concepts.
  11. Here is South Bay Version 2. Colors inspired by their MPLS days. I changed the collar because the Kobe era template looked too familiar. I think I like this one better. The yellow ties up quite nicely with the Lakers while the color combination gives it a very sunny LA vibe.
  12. For the main sets, I'm keeping them simple and familiar. But I have been thinking of making City jerseys so maybe I can go crazy with those. Thanks for the suggestion @timberwolf. I'll definitely keep that in mind . The next few teams are Western Conference Juggernauts (at least their parent clubs are). First up, we have the South Bay Lakers. The template is from the Kobe Era but in 60's Lakers colors. I then used the typography from their main logo. It boggles my mind why the Lakers keep on using the same wordmark in their City jerseys. They should be using this! Or use the cursive Los Angeles. I might try a light blue and yellow version of these too so stay tuned.
  13. To complete pink vs. teal, here is the Grand Rapids Drive. The design is heavily inspired by the 90's Pistons. Fans have long been asking for the only other color scheme of Detroit (unless you consider the boring black and gray jerseys). The Drive actually wore similar fauxbacks.
  14. For team pink, we have the Sioux Fall Skyforce! I used the Miami Floridians color scheme because the Vice branding is too tied up to the Heat. And it doesn't hurt that the colors apparently look like the current Miami palette. I kept the design simple, much like the Floridians' jerseys. The waist logo came from the Sioux Falls Flag. I'm not really feeling the pink uniform but the white and black ones look really sharp.
