  1. For those who can put my uniform concepts in NBA 2K or NBA Live, I'm giving 'em my permission.
  2. Wow, I can't believe that my last concept post was from a month ago as of the day I was writing this. Anyway, I'm closing this topic, and I'm no longer pursuing for a 32-team NBA. I truly appreciate all your comments and suggestions. I'm actually thinking about making WNBA uniform concepts, especially now that each team have unique looks, something that wasn't done from the beginning of the league. Once again, thank you so much for following this topic, and you can look forward to my next concepts!
  3. I'm a big fan of WNBA pulling off unique uniforms for each team. I can't believe the league waited 25 years to do this. I hope the "heroine" and "explorer" uniforms won't be a one-off, simply because it's the 25th anniversary of the league. Though sadly, we won't see something like these for great defunct teams like the Houston Comets, San Antonio (Silver) Stars, Sacramento Monarchs, and Detroit Shock, unless they come back to life.
  4. I like this! It's a nice and clean set. I think these should be on the court. P.S. You've got a nice uniform template to work with.
  5. That Bucks community edition should be the team's city uniform next year.
  6. Yep, I'm doing exactly what I wished. First, I decided to make the outlined pinwheel logo the primary instead of the one without the outline, since the previous sorta lacked color balance. The association and icon uniforms remain the same, but the significant changes are made on the statement and city uniforms. The sash has been the Trail Blazers' signature element for a long time, but I have never seen any uniform where a wordmark is placed on the sash. Not anymore. I put the retro Blazers script on the sash for a change of pace, while the sash and the striping on the shorts feature 10 sublimated lines as a tribute to the pinwheel logo. The city uniform also receives the sash treatment, but this time, it's in the colors and pattern of the flag of Portland, Oregon. 'PDX' finally makes its debut on a Trail Blazer uniform, and it's in a retro font. I'm not sure if the flag colors can be brought to life, since the palette contains green and gold (a nod to the Sonics, the team's rivals in the Pacific Northwest). I think I'm satisfied with my revision, let me know what you think!
  7. That's a skill I'd probably like to have, but it really needs A LOT of Photoshop proficiency. As for bootlegging, I'm not sure about it, sorry.
  8. That's a wrap. The Pelicans are the final team I've conceptualized in this topic, although I'm open to revise some of my concepts. I would like to revise my Blazers concept, since I'm not fully satisfied with it. There were also some requests that were left out because I would like to finish all teams, but I think I could do them in the coming days. If there are other concepts in this topic that you would like me to revise, comment down below. Thank you very much for your support in this topic. I truly appreciate 'em.
  9. NEW ORLEANS PELICANS Before creating this concept set, I went to my routine of looking for inspirations. Most of the concepts feature the wrought iron decorations found in the French Quarter. I went with a simple version of that, so as not to over-decorate the regular uniform editions (association and icon). For the icon uniform, I went with a red side panel instead of gold, to follow the pattern on the association uniform and to introduce more colors while eliciting simplicity. The statement uniform is a modified version of the current uniforms. Basically, I extended the side panel design to the ends of the jersey and the shorts, and I added a fleur-de-lis pattern on the navy portion of it. I initially thought of a Saints-inspired city uniform, but the first three editions already have a plenty amount of gold, and I think it would be an overkill to extend it to the city edition. So, I went with the sleeve striping pattern of the Saints from the 70's to the early 80's (the ones with the gap between the black/white and gold), but incorporating a Mardi Gras color palette. The side panel design is also a subtle tribute to the city's ABA team, the Buccaneers. As far as I can remember, the Pelicans rarely use their Crescent City Basketball logo, and thus, I made it the star of the show at the front, with a minor change: I replaced the ball with a simple circle, so that the player's number can be placed there. Adding to the wackiness of my city uniform is the half-purple-half-green treatment, inspired by the final Mardi Gras uniforms of the team when they were still known as the Hornets.
  10. First of all, it's 93, not 96. Anyway, you're off to a great start! Will we get all 4 editions per team? So far, I think these are all icon uniforms. But, great effort there!
  11. WASHINGTON WIZARDS When I think about the Wizards, I think about the blue, gold/copper, and black. I saved that for the city uniform, but most people associate the team with its former moniker, the Bullets, as well as the red, white, and blue striped uniforms in their full glory. I tried to recapture that glory while still thinking of modernization (in other words, cleaning and simplifying things). The association and icon uniforms feature a very obvious homage to the aforementioned striped jerseys. When I thought of the icon edition, I went against red in favor of navy blue, although its counterparts from other sports use red or a shade of it (burgundy from WFT), since before the oversimplification of the Bullets' uniforms in the late 1980's, the team wore blue as the dark uniform. It's also worth noting that the two stripes are also applied on the shorts, inspired by @AAO's concept back then. For these two uniforms, the DC flag is predominantly represented through the two red stripes on the jersey and the shorts, and the three stars on each jersey side panel. The statement jersey is pretty straightforward. It's just a red version of the stars-and-stripes uniforms from 2016-17, 2019-20, and 2020-21 seasons. This time, I put the team's The District of Columbia script front and center, instead of just the 'dc'. Going back to my first paragraph, I brought back the 90's color scheme onto my city uniform, with black being the base color, taking cues from the black jersey of the Capitals. The sides feature the shape of the Washington Monument, somewhat similar to the ones from 2017-18 and 2018-19, as well as the earned uniform from 2018-19. The front wordmark was also taken from the Caps, decorated with three stars, while the garter buckle features a different 'DC' logo, having the same treatment as the front wordmark. I'm sure this city uniform will generate mixed reviews, so let me know your thoughts on this!
  12. The idea is good, but I think it would look better if the entire front wordmark is not condensed into one line. Maybe stack 'em into two lines? Like, on the first line, it's "EL HEAT", then on the second line, it's "DE MIAMI" but with a smaller font. Just a suggestion.
  13. As a Filipino, I approve this. If the Philippine Football Federation will ever consider a kit redesign, then this should be the national team's kit set, although the white is most likely to be picked from this, since the Azkals usually wear white as the primary.
  14. SACRAMENTO KINGS To be honest, when it comes to uniforms, the Kings were hard to conceptualize. For most of the team's history, they wore generic-looking uniforms. But, given it being one of the inaugural NBA teams along with the likes of the Celtics and Lakers, it's okay to go with a "traditional" design. The association, icon, and statement uniforms all follow the same design, taking cues from the current uniforms and the first purple era uniforms. I also switched the front wordmarks of the icon and statement editions, plus, the latter retains the "S" background pattern from the current version. I brought back the black as a primary uniform color, since purple and granite alone looks incomplete to me. Like the current city uniform, my take on it is a mix-and-mash of ideas. First, why blue and gold? Blue symbolizes the Kings' past color scheme before purple came in, and gold symbolizes the Tower Bridge. These colors are also an indirect shoutout to the team's time in Kansas City, taken from that city's baseball team, the Royals. Second, the front script is cursive with a tail, just the way it was before the purple era, and, yes, "Sactown" is still my chosen moniker. Third, I chose white as the primary background so that they can wear it at home. Finally, the fading checkered pattern on one side, aside from the obvious homage, is a tribute to Sacramento being California's "most hipster city" and America's "most diverse city".
  15. I don't know what you're referring to "black instead of red", but I assume that it's on the icon uniform. I initially went for black-as-secondary-color motif, but it might be similar to my future Kings concept, so I went with red. Anyway, here 'ya go: Also, for good measure, I have a black version of the statement uniform: No need for monetary amount, it's free. I also have other templates on the Paint Users' Paradise in the CCSLC forum, you can check those out.
