  1. I think it was because they jerseys were designed before the game was switched from Charlotte to NOLA.
  2. I'd love to see a possible color vs. color! If there is enough contrast -- why not? I think a Kansas City (red) vs. any of the blue teams (Dallas, Seattle, NY or Detroit) would be gorgeous. Not to mention an Atlanta vs. New England or Houston. Just no Color Rush jerseys.
  3. I agree. I think they should eliminate one preseason game (making the preseason three games) and add one to the regular season (to make 17). Then play one home, one road and one neutral within the states or Canada and then play the 17th game neutrally Internationally. That way you could play some 8 games in London, Mexico City, etc. and sell season tickets to those local fans. Anyways, my two cents.
  4. I think the funniest thing about those Recycle Green jerseys was they were a one-time jersey PROMOTING recycling -- just a few weeks or so after wearing their St. Patrick's Day jerseys. If they really wanted to walk the talk they should have just worn the St. Patrick's Day jerseys and slapped that NBA recycle logo on there. That's called recycling! LOL!
  5. I don't know? Are you ready for copious amounts of VOLT?
  6. I think they were? For one they were included in a number of the video games and I BELIEVE those were released before or around the time that the game was switched to NOLA. And, secondly, if we are going under the assumption that Home plays in LIGHT jerseys and Road plays in DARK -- then the West should be in the light jersey since NOLA plays in the West. But, this setup would be acceptable if the game was played in Charlotte. But, yeah, they're turrible.
  7. Sorta? They were known in the standings as the New Orleans-Oklahoma City Hornets, but that was about it.
  8. We have players in the wrong uniform -- and teams in the wrong stadium. So, why not a teams in the wrong uniform thread? I'll start off with a few obvious ones ... (pretty much any Turn Ahead The Clock Jersey to be honest) What would you add to this list?
  9. How this doesn't happen more in the NFL is beyond me. If I played football, I am sure this would be me on Day #1.
  10. I agree. The lack of blue kind of bugged me. But, I love the look. It's very sharp.
  11. Gotcha. I don't think it really matters anyways, ESPN and major outlets mainly call them the LA Angels and the team pushes "Angels Baseball" over any other identifier. However do I wish they went back to the Anaheim Angels. Alliteration for the win.
  12. Met Karl Malone as a kid a couple times. He's a dick.
  13. I think he was pointing out which old logo he'd like to return, not the previously used logo.
  14. Well, I just used those as examples. The last bar were the logos I want to see return.
  15. Well, seemed like a test for Winnipeg to move to Minneapolis -- which would have happened if the Target Center could have been profitable with the T'Wolves and a NHL team. Two other things of notes on this ... 1) They did neutral site games in 1992-93 as well. 2) The Dallas Stars played a game in the Target Center their first year in Dallas. Talk about awkward.
  16. I am not sure if that's the case any more? According to this site they have the option to with a new lease. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2013/09/the-angels-may-be-changing-their-name-sort-of But, I'm not sure if a new lease was signed or not? Aren't the Angels looking at Downtown LA or somewhere else in Orange County?
  17. The Jazz played 11 home games in Las Vegas in the early '80s. Including the game where Kareem broke Wilt's scoring record.
  18. After watching the Giants' Color Rush throwbacks and mulling the (hopeful) return of blue and gold for the LA Rams, I got to thinking of the return to old logos. A few come to mind as of the past 15-20 years. And, sure, there are many more that could have been used as an example (ie- Islanders, Sabres, Blue Jays, Hawks, Kings, etc) ... But, what other teams are there in the Big 4 that you would like to see a return to a previous logo as their main logo? Here are a few I'd love to see, but I would love to see what many of you have in mind as well ...
  19. Do you think there could be a change to something that looks like the Color Rush jerseys? A mesh of old school and their current look/colors?
  20. The Magic may have had more future HOFers, but Miami sure brought in a lot more former All-Stars in their twilight.
  21. He wasn't in 1994-99, but when he came back in 2002 he was -- I should have clarified that's from his 2002 stint.
  22. The Florida teams seem to have picked up a bunch of 'washed up' All-Stars over the years. Some more shocking then others. Maybe it's Florida's no income tax or the chance to play with Orlando's Shaq & Penny or Miami's Shaq & D-Wade or Big Three. Here are some former All-Stars in Magic uniforms later in their careers (with the exception of Big Ben of course ... still odd seeing him in any uniform other than Detroit).
  23. A few more one season or rarely seen players in "wrong" uniforms ...
