  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. Davis just turned 26. You trade those guys for a 26 year old as good as AD, period.
  13. fully on the "suns and pacers are the only good looks" train. most of those uniforms are dreadful.
  14. outside of GSW/HOU game 2, every game in the 1st round so far has had the home team in white. i think i got so used to uniforms being random that now the traditional way feels strange.
  15. Sean Marks put together a playoff team that improved by 13 games this season with no major offseason acquisitions while maintaining major cap space for this summer. Outside of D'Angelo Russell at #2 overall, the 10-man rotation consists of guys picked 13, 20, 22, 22, 27, 33, 38, 40 and undrafted. I don't know what he learned in his time with the Spurs but as far as I'm concerned they can lock him down for another decade.
  16. which is ridiculous because the live audience represents a very small percentage of people viewing a game. its not like new yorkers can only see the navy uniforms if they're in the arena.
  17. golf is the most unwatchable thing on television and i will never not feel that way.
  18. le'veon bell was given this hat on his signing day. the deemphasis of the old football shaped logo and their frequent use of the italicized NY does seem to hint that it'll be prominently featured.
  19. infor's logo is red and yet the nets got their patch to be black/white and about as seamless as possible. more team should be pushing for that, though i'm sure brooklyn probably negotiated themselves out of some money because of that choice.
  20. are the thunder the rare team where every alternate they have right now is a better uniform than their regular association and icon looks? if they could inject some life into the white uni i would say this is the best they've ever looked.
  21. as someone who wears and loves the last two lebrons models (15 and 16), i've never worn a basketball shoe with that combination of sturdiness while still being relatively light. they're pretty incredible shoes and definitely feel like they were built for lebron's playing style.
  22. green and red is definitely my favorite combo they've had. i know people thought it looked like christmas but i never made that association until i posted on this board.
  23. i'm more annoyed by the choices the teams are making in design and when they choose to wear certain looks than i am with the quantity itself. the warriors have a crazy amount of yellow on their court. it just looks better if the lakers wear purple there. i also hate when teams who have a colored uniform wear their black unis in brooklyn or san antonio, as well. we're not far off from a scenario where the wolves are wearing their purple prince unis in sacramento while the kings are in light blue and red. it's a mess.
  24. the ability some of you have to get to a place of insults on the internet over people not liking the designs you like is seriously as impressive as it is disconcerting.
  25. My choices have revealed to me that my spirit animal is just a dude from Fresno who didn't care about hockey until he moved to NYC after college:
