  1. this matchup is why i can't completely get on the "color vs color is always an abomination that should never happen" train. these games all looked great. in fact, you could do color vs color with most teams in the league and there'd be at least 2 different combos that look fantastic and dont have fans wondering who is who. there just doesnt seem to be any focus / intention at all with who is wearing what. the nets debuted a black earned jersey that perfectly fits their aesthetic and it feels like they've worn it twice. the clippers are wearing two different drab black uniforms nonstop. utah never wears anything other than red rocks at home even though they'll probably phase it out in a year or two. it's just all so muddled and every team looks like every other team.
  2. i gotta be honest, seeing them worn, i kinda like the all-star jerseys not as all-star unis but if indiana had ever wanted to do a fauxback to that 80s era uniform.
  3. i mean, theoretically the nba could tell the all-star participants they're doing white jerseys vs. color jerseys and specifically pick everyones jersey. it would literally take less than 10 minutes of work to make sure nobody wears anything that clashes.
  4. I'd be in favor of these being their icon unis and making a white/off-white chevron version as their association set. The original black Brooklyn jerseys look great at home vs. the opponents in color, but their white jersey is just so boring in comparison to every other look they have.
  5. I think most people don't mind the uniform conventions being a little more flexible. the nets in a blue tie-dye throwback, the lakers wearing white alts, boston wearing green at home, color vs. color, etc. But LA playing on the road in all blue on a mostly blue court while the sixers are in red is legitimately confusing beyond a "uniform" convention standpoint. the mavericks going on the road in white and gold against the bucks who are wearing mavs colors on a black and green court is actually confusing to my friends who dont care about uniforms. hopefully the nba learns from this like they did the t-shirt jersey experiment.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. whose idea was it for the bucks to cosplay as the mavericks?
  10. okay, skyline uniforms have officially jumped the shark if they hadn't yet.
  11. 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.
  12. suns new jersey is fantastic. 10/10 would own if i was a suns fan.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. as a Nets fan, if this is real this is the worst jersey we've had since the grey "dodger" sleeved jerseys. i hope this isn't replacing the statement jersey of the past 2 seasons as it's a ENORMOUS downgrade. crazy how much difference a simple wordmark makes.
  22. my biggest issue with boston is that Kemba and Kanter are both very subpar defenders. when your center and pg can't defend that's the textbook recipe for giving up HELLA points in the paint. they're gonna score a lot but that defense is gonna need work.
  23. MIL PHI BKN BOS IND MIA ORL ATL DEN UTA LAC LAL GSW HOU POR SAS more thoughts: if michael porter jr. is as good as people thought he was before he hurt his back, the nuggets are looking like a monstrous regular season team. the major trade question marks are whether CP3 or Beal get moved and if the Raptors decide to rebuild or prefer to use some assets to retool at some point in the season. KD, PG3, Oladipo, Klay, Nurkic are all slated to miss good amounts (in KD's case probably all) of the following season. atlanta, dallas and new orleans will the most fun of the "bad" teams, but if atlanta can improve by 11 wins from 29 to 40--not crazy if Reddish and Hunter are good-- i think that's a playoff team in the east. the knicks will be a bit better than people expect. the hornets will be the worst team in the league by a wide margin.
  24. A lot of ball players + hip hop/pop culture in general has been inching back towards shorter shorts and more fitted uniforms for years now. I know I wear my shorts way smaller now than I did as a kid.
  25. Davis just turned 26. You trade those guys for a 26 year old as good as AD, period.
