  1. T-Mac doesn't look too happy, but I'm not too sure I'd be pleased as punch having to carry those Magic teams with Grant Hill injured either.
  2. I imagine they'll have your standard white and grey jerseys, than an alt that's green for four months out of the season, changes to a nice perfect yellow for like two days, than bam, brown for the rest of the year.
  3. I like the Diamondbacks rebrand, or rather, the idea of it. I've been in the camp of people who think there could stand to be one or two modern looking teams in baseball, and who else but a team that's younger then most of the prospects in your average team's pipeline? Another team I'd love to see go modern would be the Rockies. They're still fairly new, have a color scheme that isn't all that classic, and frankly, need the shakeup.
  4. Maybe it's just the stripes on the jerseys looking a bit like waves to me, but I'd love this if it was a "hey we're moving into the Staples Center so let's look like we kinda care" rebrand for the Clippers in 1999, typeface and all. Just a real nautical theme to me.
  5. Ok, kidding. Mostly. I do think there's room for another teal team in the league. Not the Pistons however. I do think there's a very good chance the Kings are going back to some evolution of the baby blue/red Reggie Theus era jerseys. Think about it. In '08-'09, the Cavs and Jazz wear throwbacks, then change to uniforms that borrow heavy elements from those jerseys after the next season (Cleveland-back to wine and gold/ Utah-revived use of green and gold). The Warriors wear Rick Barry era gold throwbacks in Steph Curry's rookie year, then go back to those old colors the next season. Suns wear their black 90s throwbacks in '12-'13, then introduce jerseys that were slightly inspired by that set (and were originally going to have the road be black instead of purple). What are the Kings wearing this year? The baby blue and red stuff. They're dipping their toe into the water and making sure the fans are cool with the changes, and from what I've seen online, people are down with the Kings 80s look.
  6. There we go. I know it's a throwback, but man it's weird to see a player wear another living player's jersey, especially from another team. Not wrong or anything (players are fans like us), just odd. Also, could the equipment guys not fit "Abdul-Jabbar" on the back in the day? I know the Rockets at one point had Rudy Tomjanovich have "Rudy T." on the back of his jersey around the same time Kareem wore that jersey. I wonder how that worked.
  7. The same year they wore those, AI sat out of a game wearing a Kareem edition of those same jerseys (this was pre dress code. Also, it might've been against the Bucks themselves). The Post had a picture of Iverson in said Bucks jersey on the bench, and I was able to use that to convince my fellow hoop loving classmates that Iverson was traded to Brew City. In fact, I believe this is it (or another picture from that game): Allen Iverson: Milwaukee Buck;
  8. Uni related piece in that article; the Jazz were supposed to wear gold jerseys?
  9. So the team's name is Smokies, the mascot is a bear, yet said bear is not wearing a park ranger's hat and lecturing me about forest fires. Huh.
  10. I'm hoping they become an orange team. Other then Texas, not too many teams use burnt orange as their primary color, if they even have burnt orange, so it'd be pretty cool. I'm also pulling for the Sounds to have numbers just like the Preds. I love the strings in the numbers for them.
  11. I've been thinking about getting a new Expos hat to wear for the Nats run this October. When it was announced the team was moving to DC, I wore a ratty, beat up mesh and polyester Expos hat for weeks until the Nationals stuff came in, and now that it's coming up on a decade and the team's looking really good, I kind of want to bring back that feeling. So, is it a nice idea that pays respect to the Nationals previous origins, or do I move on and wear the curly-W with anticipation of postseason magic?
  12. One little teeny thing you could do (because this is already a excellent set) is have the names orange with a black outline, but have them arched like the '70 jerseys.
  13. I've never thought of Midnight Green as pretty. I always thought it was more a grimier, grungier color (I also root for an NFC East team not named the Eagles, so maybe my choice of words is a little harsh.). For that reason, I've never seen why they needed to add black to it. Kelly Green and Black? I see it. Midnight and Kelly Green? Could be interesting. Midnight Green and Black? Too close to really work well together, IMO. Someone, anyone, needs to use Bronze. I've been thinking the Rockies or Raptors recently for some reason.
  14. Lost a whale of mine yesterday. Champion Gheorghe Muresan Wizards jersey in a 48. I'm not sure I can stomach paying $81 for a replica.
  15. I've decided to tack onto my list a Bluefield Orioles hat in a size 8. The hat in question;
  16. I've started to change my mind on them actually. I was never a big opponent of those jerseys, but my opinion of them's grown considerably, almost to where I catch myself looking at the Hakeem and Yao ones Adidas released as Hardwood Classics online often.
  17. I was reading an article on how the Reno Aces had to travel to Nashville then to Salt Lake City. The distances involved were rather much for a junior circuit, IMO, so I'm bringing back the American Association. If a team isn't in the new AA, they're in the same league as they are now. American Association III Western Division Iowa Cubs Omaha Storm Chasers New Orleans Zephyrs Round Rock Express Oklahoma Redhawks Eastern Division Nashville Sounds Louisville Bats Memphis Redbirds Buffalo Bisons Indianapolis Indians The Triple-A All Star Game goes back to AL farm clubs vs. NL farm clubs. As for the playoffs, I like the AAA Championship Game, so we'll have a Championship Weekend. The AAA champion with the best record (We'll say the IL's Lehigh Valley in this scenario) gets a bye, and the other two teams (the AA's Louisville and PCL's Las Vegas) have a play-in game on Friday. Winner of the play-in game gets the Ironpigs on Sunday.
  18. For the Sox fonts, try tracing or something with the Chicago 2 font on here. It looks to be a very close match to what the White Sox have for the "Sox" logo they have now.
  19. There will be expansion by at least two of the big four. From most to least likely IMO; NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL. The antitrust exemptions will be heavily challenged by the US government in an election year.An owner or general manager will have an attempt on their life made. Leaning heavily towards the NFL.After years of debate and lawsuits, no real change is made to the NCAA.That team you think has a bunch of young talent and is poised to be the dynasty of the next decade? No rings. They make a bad trade, a key prospect gets hurt, they hire the wrong coach/manager, and their talent gets wasted. The good team you think peters out? They work the late rounds of the draft, find the pieces they need, and keep chugging away.Two former pro athletes become Governors. As for my teams, of the Nationals, Wizards, Redskins, Orioles, or Capitals, one of them will make a conference/ league finals. The Nats are my best guess, but I could easily see them reeling off a five year streak of 90+ losing seasons by 2014. I also think RGIII gets traded by 2016 and will make a Super Bowl elsewhere and John Wall or Bradley Beal tear an ACL and become a fraction of what they were. I have little faith in my teams.
  20. The logos, scripts, colors, and uniforms are wonderful. The only thing I would change is that there's no red on the scripts. I'd maybe add a red outline on them. Solid work all around.
  21. I thought I heard somewhere that the Heat purposely made their numbers to look like the Lakers,and that the Magic adopted the pinstripes from the Yankees and the parquet floor from the Celtics. It's only fitting that a few years later the Heat would bring aboard the head of those Lakers teams they (supposedly) wanted to look like.
  22. I like these, and the idea behind them: I don't see why everyone wants to ditch the red for another shade of green or two (green and red go well together, are unique, and the team has a history with them), and the idea of taking an old template and changing the colors up is a good move in my book.
  23. The night after Game 5 of the 2012 NLDS was pretty jarring. I was up until 2 AM in a state of disbelief. Not really upset or angry, just some sort of empty confusion. I could barely look at my Nats' hats or the pennant in my room for a week. Another time was the day Gilbert Arenas got traded to the Magic. He was quite tarnished after GunGate (another bad day, although I'd say that plus Abe Pollin's death plus the dismantling of the team would make the 2009-10 season the worst season of my life), but it still was strange in the way that no one would've thought five years before that that was how Gil was going to end his Wiz tenure; an All-Star now a shell of himself, with an albatross contract, being traded for another former All-Star with a large deal in order to try and change the culture around the team.
  24. While I love the mountain cap idea, could you make one of the caps just have simply the C with the ball in it perhaps?
