  1. None. I actually interned there as a graphic designer about 10 years ago. They were very intentional about treating it like a clean slate.
  2. All of that may be true, but in practical application, the Thunder never refer to the Sonics history, nor hang their championship banner in the arena, nor discuss past great/retired numbers/etc. While it is technically a maintained history, it is practically treated as a new franchise.
  3. I'll take this current system over this tbh. I really think the biggest issue is with TV broadcasts. As others have mentioned, it doesn't appear to be an issue for soccer broadcasts to match score bugs to the teams uniforms. And knowing that everything is planned out before the season begins, it really shouldn't be hard for TV stations to align.
  4. OKC's debuting their City Edition uniform tonight that features dazzle fabric on the side panels:
  5. Did any teams have the black stripe on their jerseys last night? I didn't notice any yet.
  6. That’s OU’s old endzone wordmark. The one they haven’t used in two season. Last year’s CFP Semifinal had their correct endzone wordmark. Weird...
  7. You mean like how Utah and San Antonio kept theirs?
  8. I mean, at least the Nets actually hired an actual street artist to do theirs...Dallas' looks like someone that's never done graffiti trying to visualize what they think graffiti should look like.
  9. Didn’t they do that for the Statement uniforms the first year? Would be cool to bring that back for one of the editions each year.
  10. All 30 NBA teams revenue share their merchandise sales, so something like that wouldn't be possible. The closest you could get would be a set donation to a charity. I like what the Thunder did, in that they're funding free admission days to the OKC Memorial periodically throughout the season. Nice way to support an actual cause in lieu of a straight profit-donation option.
  11. The City part has never been straight.
  12. This is for the GIG process, which encompasses much more than just uniforms, but it's just under two years.
  13. I always assumed that they’d make the Icon uniforms the default home look when that happens, which makes sense. “Thunder” primarily at home, “Oklahoma City” (or “OKC”) on the road.
  14. Yeah that was mentioned on UniWatch.
  15. Makes sense why they eliminated gold helmets this past season.
  16. 14 new Statement jerseys? Or 14 new ones total?
  17. Yeah...this teaser significantly lowered my hopes for this kit. I'm not a fan of skyline kits in general, but especially in Dallas' case. Yes, the Reunion tower is distinctive as far as buildings go, but not necessarily attractive, like say the Bay Bridge or something. I fear something that will end up looking like the Mavs alternates which I'm not big on.
  18. Count me out on this plastic silver swoosh trend.
  19. In my mind the biggest reason has got to be jersey sales. Outside of a small minority, I don't think many would be rushing out snatch up purple Steph Curry jerseys. Black/white is much more universal.
  20. This was the first time OU has had a white CFP decal. Previous two trips it was black.
