  1. Hawks/Hornets was a GORGEOUS uniform combo the other night. Also, I know I'm biased but these Nets throwbacks look great in action with the throwback court.
  2. Lakers/Mavs the best uni-matchup of the day so far but I still feel like an old complainer because the trend of not matching your shoes to your uniform will always bug me. Also, completely agree that Boston's banner unis look GREAT in action. Like, perfect design and the perfect team to execute it.
  3. oh for sure, i think the unis are pretty sleak and cool in a vacuum but they just do not look like the milwaukee bucks in any way, as you said. every time i glance at the game i'm momentarily confused about who is even who.
  4. whose idea was it for the bucks to cosplay as the mavericks?
  5. okay, skyline uniforms have officially jumped the shark if they hadn't yet.
  6. Lebron was definitely just wearing Don C fashion shorts that have nothing to do with the Lakers. Highly doubt they're gonna have Dodger unis anytime soon but I dig those new whites.
  7. suns new jersey is fantastic. 10/10 would own if i was a suns fan.
  8. IIRC, Basquiat didn't want his stuff licensed and his dad kept that going after he passed, but when pops passed the rest of the family opened up shop. Now, as a disclaimer I am a Nets fan but I've loved most of their uniform looks 2012-present. The grey sleeved jersey was the only truly heinous thing they've worn IMO. The white sleeved-jerseys would've been fine without sleeves and Bed Stuy jersey would be great with 'Brooklyn' or 'Nets' on 'em. That said, this jersey is corny. Also, telling some Nike designer to use Jean-Michel's style as the "inspiration" for a sports uniform seems like a guarantee to get a watered down, poorly done imitation of what the artist was actually trying to capture, and blah blah blah I know Jerseys are just money-grabs. But damn. That thing sucks.
  9. They lost one key guy in D'Angelo Russell and are still in the playoffs. The remaining 4 of their best 5 players last year are still here. As a Nets fan, anyone mourning the loss of Ed Davis, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, DeMarre Caroll, Shabazz Napier or Allen Crabbe is a crazy person (Dudley was cool and I hope LeBron wins him a ring). If getting another star meant losing Taurean Prince, Garrett Temple, Rodions Kurucs, Wilson Chandler and Dzanan Musa this summer I'd sign up for that in a heartbeat.
  10. You guys may hate the neighborhood specificity now but wait till next year when the Nets debut their “Bay Ridge” jersey where the chest logo is just an NYPD officer arguing with a pizza shop guy about the Yankees.
  11. completely agree with you. i hated those red striped jerseys as a kid and i think if they're dead set on a pinstripe look, switching to white/silver is a massive upgrade.
  12. same. outlining the numbers and matching them to the wordmark (and a better graf style) would've sealed this for me. crazy thing is, i wrote graffiti before anything else and i so badly want this to work but the style is superrrrrrr generic. i get that it's easier to template / read for people unfamiliar with the form but it's so blah to me. i like what Flatbush&Atlantic (dude who designs bootleg Nets fan merch) did in making the wordmark more intricate (not dissimilar theoretically to say, the dodgers script) and matching the numbers: overall, the original is still a nice uni. the handstyle stars and the herringbone layered underneath on the side panels is pretty damn beautiful. but there was more to be done there. the more i see it the more i thin this uni will look the best on the grey court. i could see this becoming their playoff uniform the way the grey alts did that first jason kidd year.
  13. That’s not...something I love but it’s infinitely better than what we expected to be the old statement with the word mark lazily replaced with bad graf writing. I hope this is more of a road thing and we mostly see the white Coogi’s at home.
  14. Considering 2K has been getting the court color and Barclays center lighting wrong (the crowd should be almost completely shrouded in darkness past like the 7th row), I think we should wait to see what it looks like irl before passing judgement. as for the pelicans, I’ll miss the darker stained bird. The new lighter version seems very hard to see and almost pointless to even have.
  15. You're exactly right, which is how you get experiences like sitting in Barclays on Coogi-uniform night drinking craft beer at halftime as the DJ Booth blasts Cardi B while Rabbi's play a 7v7 scrimmage against jewish school children. Their brand has been bizarro world for a while.
