  1. Exactly. However those jerseys are unimaginative trash. Should have done something different. Like orange. Sure they went 0-7 in them back in 2012, but that shouldn’t be an issue with THIS team.
  2. True, but so did the Clips with getting Paul George from OKC. But, I think the difference will be the ownership. Ballmer is all in and passionate, he trusts his basketball people and hires smart people. The Busses ... um ... this offseason speaks for itself.
  3. I like the idea behind it, but all together it feels and looks too cluttered.
  4. My hope (and dream) is that the Clippers will make the Lakers irrelevant. Probably wouldn't happen like the past 30-40 years ... but ... seeing the Lakers suck has been fun.
  5. I dig. I'm surprised it's not black, TBH. Which means next year's City Jersey will probably be a black version of this. My biggest gripe is the number. It feels more out of place than the Nets' statement jerseys.
  6. Obscure one, but Greg Ostertag wore the original his rookie season in 95-96 and the throwback in 2003-04.
  7. I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily a rule in today’s NBA when there’s money to be had. But, I agree with the sediment.
  8. There aren’t earned jerseys for this season.
  9. I think this is my issue with it. Why not keep THAT jersey in the rotation why cycle through 3-4 differing colorings of the same template? If Nike and the NBA are insistent on a rotating cycle of jerseys they need to slow it down a bit. Icon and Association should have a minimum and optional cycle of 5 years, Statement jerseys a minimum of 3 years with an opt in to keep the design (there's no need to change just to change) and City Jerseys should be a minimum of 2 years. The current cycle of Statement jerseys changing every two and city every season is too much. It was KINDA fun at first ... but, why change something that works so quickly?
  10. I hate to admit this ... but, the whole Miami Vice thing is growing stale.
  11. It's not bad, but ... meh.
  12. It’s a shame arenas today have a lot less character and uniqueness.
  13. Rumor has it, it's a granite-ish base color that incorporates the sunset design.
  14. Not questioning your sources, etc. But, I don't think your sources would be wanting to sharing even the base colors of team information. I mean ... do you see @Conrad. doing this?
  15. East 1. Sixers 2. Bucks 3. Celtics 4. Nets 5. Heat 6. Raptors 7. Pacers 8. Pistons West 1. Nuggets 2. Jazz 3. Rockets 4. Lakers 5. Clippers 6. Warriors 7. Blazers 8. Pelicans Conference Finals East: Sixers over Bucks West: Jazz over Lakers Finals: Jazz over Sixers MVP: James Harden ROY: Ja Morant Coach of the Year: Michael Malone DPOY: Rudy Gobert Sixth Man: Lou Williams
  16. For as popular as these were I've been really surprised that they haven't returned either as is ... or in red or blue.
  17. It is supposed to represent Lake Michigan ... but, yeah ... not so much random and forced. There really is no need for blue.
  18. We're seeing it in Miami already with their vice jerseys.
  19. The Bulls made their red jersey their preferred home jersey in 2017 ... much like Houston and Brooklyn have. I don’t mind color at home for most teams ... but, the Bulls should be in white IMO.
  20. I wish Reinsdorf wasn’t such a tightwad and make a corresponding Chicago City Flag theme court. I’ve hated watching the Bulls play in the City jerseys on the regular court. (SIDE NOTE: imagine saying that last paragraph 5 years ago)
  21. Not for the Statement Jersey ... I’m sure we’ll see a Chicago City Flag design for the City Jersey.
  22. It feels like they gave themselves the Dolphin treatment.
  23. It'll be interesting to see if the rotation on statement jerseys changes from it's intended cycle of two years. I think every 3-4 years would be perfect.
