    I'd be fine with a Spurs Fiesta alternate jersey, or a special occasion jersey. Something new with classic colors.

     

    Why not? It's a very nice color scheme and I'm a fan of retro. Definitely not full on throwback, but a partial return would be great.

     

    The thing is the Spurs never wore the fiesta colors on their uniforms. The closest it got was the warmups and floor.

    That's completely subjective. For me, royal blue and red are great for the Pistons. Navy, gray, and black are not. To me, what isn't arguable is that there certainly is no compelling reason that this monstrosity should be used in over 25% of the games.

    I'm pulling for Giannis, for real. I wanna see him--and Milwaukee, for that matter--get that elusive championship. And if ever they were going to do that, THIS is the time.

     

    Elusive? They got one. 


  4. You know, the 4th of July caps made me think of something that I think would be cool.

     

    What if they had a Throwback Weekend where teams wear an era appropriate jersey and hat? Like 1900, 1930, 1970s, etc. and for those teams that weren't around use either a Minor League team from that era or do a fauxback like the Rays do for the 80s? I think that would be really cool.

     

    Maybe even do Negro League inspired jerseys on Jackie Robinson Day?

     

    Okay I am probably getting ahead of myself.

    I'd like to see this uniform as their regular classic for next season, but I guess they will receive "The City" jersey. @Conrad. am I right or am I wrong?

     

    I would assume ... and have been assuming ... that they'd use them. But, since THE TOWN jerseys have been their statement jersey for the past two years I could totally see them making a modern version of THE CITY as well.

    I'm sorry, I know soccer does it, but ads on jerseys are a fooking abomination. It looks so tacky and gross. To me this looks like Texas Capital Bank is playing the Mayo Clinic on some f'ing rec league game.

     

    I don't watch soccer very often but when I do I have no idea who the hell is playing because it looks like Mercedes-Benz is playing Toshiba. It's a giant turn-off and I'll stop watching the NFL is they ever do this.

     

    I don’t mind the soccer kits. I think what I don’t like about the WNBA’s method is they have local AND league advertiser on the jerseys. Now with the team logo in the center with no front number it looks awful. Too busy.

    Man that football on the logo looks dumb. It would've been better off with just the word Jets.

     

    I'm in the same boat. The football just looks ... odd? JETS would be fine, but I'd prefer the NY logo over anything else.

    in 2011 the Sacramento Kings played in the PowerBalance Pavilion. PowerBalance went into bankruptcy the next year. I guess they couldn’t balance that power. 

     

    But, what's worse ... PowerBalance Pavilion or SleepTrain Arena?

    Am I the only person who thinks these are better than their current set? Sure they may look a little dated, but they're still gorgeous.

    Edit: Also, it's cool to think about the fact that Steph began his career 10 years ago wearing this jersey and it all came full circle on Sunday night. If you would have told me in 2009 how much success the Warriors were going to have in this decade, I would have called you insane.

     

    I am not sure if I love it MORE than their current set? But, as mentioned by @anythinglogos their road was my favorite and that orange was my favorite part of the logo and jersey.

    I’m very glad this matchup didn’t happen, that wolves green jersey is the worst color jersey in the league. I don’t mind a green jersey for Minnesota, just not such an ugly shade. Especially against Charlottes BFBS unis

     

    I don’t MIND the electric lime green color, but it just doesn’t work with the Wolves identity at all ... especially on their home court which is heavily navy blue.


  11. Let's have a little fun. With the majority of sports stadiums, arenas and ballparks named with a corporate sponsor ... what would you want YOUR team's venue to be called if corporate names weren't allowed? 

     

    Here are mine ...

     

    Utah Jazz - Salt Palace or Miller Sports Arena

    San Francisco Giants - McCovey Park or South Beach Park

    Pittsburgh Steelers - Rooney Field

    Chicago Blackhawks/Bulls - Chicago Stadium II or Madison Street Arena

    If I’m being 100% honest here? 

     

    Ice Hockey. Specifically NHL style hockey.

     

    I feel like I spend around 90% of the time watching the game just trying to figure out where the hell the puck is. It’s so frustrating to me. I don’t know why I have such a bad eye for it compared to other sports. I feel like I never actually see what’s going on because I just don’t know where to look. I also think the whole fighting aspect of the game is totally unnecessary and lame, and it kinda brings the whole sport down with it. And with the NHL and other similar leagues the rink feels comically small. It doesn’t make sense to me why you would try to cram such a fast paced game with such large athletes into such a small little area. Watching a bunch of hulking dudes on skates all crammed together into the same corner of the boards fighting for the puck isn’t a fun watch IMO. I actually much prefer Olympic style hockey because it opens the whole thing up just a little bit more and it better showcases just how fast some of these guys move. I also appreciate the general intolerance for fighting Olympic hockey has. 

     

     

    And its it’s not that I “hate” hockey. I actually like a lot of the concepts of the sport. It just loses me when it comes to actual gameplay because I have a bit of a hard time fundamentally “getting” it.

     

     

    I am 100% with you on that too. I blame it a lot on the fact that my first sport love was basketball because of the Jazz. I didn't have a team above the Golden Eagles here in Salt Lake to cheer for. I like it, I just don't get how to properly watch it.

    Easy steps to make the Texans' unis better:

    1. Switch helmet shell to white. Their great logo doesn't stand out on the blue shell.

    2. The number font is horrid. Simplify.

    3. Lighten up the blue. Doesn't have to be Oilers' colors (even though that would be awesome.

     

    How do you simplify their number font ... it’s pretty basic as is? Especially matched up against most new jerseys.

    This Hornets Jazz matchup is beautiful. Jazz six sets are an A+

     

    100% agree!!! I hope the Jazz wear throwbacks again next year! Either the home whites from that era. But, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they brought out the mountain jerseys.

    Actually gonna disagree, the jazz look the best they’ve ever looked right now and the only thing they need is to bring back the green “UTAH” jerseys they had under the last year of adidas and replace the gradient uniform. Which isn’t bad, I just hate teams wearing colors that aren’t their team colors.

     

    Edit: unless it’s throwbacks of course 

     

    I agree with you on that, I loved those UTAH jerseys. But, the green on the blue jerseys needs to be lighter.

    I vastly prefer purple, BUT if they insist on sticking with navy, then something needs to be done about the shade of green. It’s way too dark to work with navy and has always looked bad with it. It needs to be kelly or even teal-ish (remember the Salt Lake Buzz?) for better contrast.

     

    I agree with you on the shade of green. It needs to be kelly green. That’s what bugged me the most about the Hayward era alternates.

    These teams are inextricably linked forever. It would apropos (and wonderful) for them to share the same primary color scheme. At the very least, they should always wear complimentary uni's for their matchups.

     

    I agree. But, I do like the current Jazz colors. The level of blue works.

    There was definitely *some* amount of color vs. color happening in the late Adidas era, too. Nitpicks aside, though, that is in fact a lovely matchup, more of that please!

     

    I think the biggest issue ... at least for me ... is the use of the white jerseys on the road. Sure it's happened before in the past, but there's no rhyme or reason it seems for when their worn on the road. I wish the white jerseys were worn only as a clash kit.
