  1. Since this is starting to take over the 2016-17 NBA thread and it should belong here (since it's debuting in 2017-18), I'll just leave this monstrosity here ...
  2. One (of my many) uniform pet-peeves is match-ups involving mixed throwback uniforms -- or even worse -- a throwback vs. current era match-up. I love that baseball is more apt to get both teams in era-appropriate throwbacks -- and to some extent the NFL in 1994 (NFL 75th) and 2009 (AFL 50th) seasons. But, the NFL and NBA have had some horrible mix-matched match-ups. I thought it would fun to find some of the worst ...
  3. I guess in the same vein, but under his own merits -- Master P did play pre-season ball for the Raptors and Hornets.
  4. Fascinating. I had no idea that happened as well?!
  5. It kinda reminds of when Ahmad Rashad played a preseason game with the 76ers as part of a promotional thing for Inside Stuff.
  6. I think it would be more appropriate to start a thread in the Sports Discussion forum, especially considering this is about 2017-18 logo/uniform changes. And, it's safe to say there will be no expansion for next year.
  7. I am disappointed that they don't have a gold jersey in their arsenal now. I hope Nike rectifies that next year. Even a gold version of their current primary would be perfect.
  8. I'm pretty sure they were allowed, but when they switched to white homes their grandfather clause was revoked.
  9. The patch looks too big. If it was smaller it'd look much better. It'll be interesting to see it on the court next season, especially with the Nike logos and all. Ugh.
  10. Ugh. So it continues.
  11. Some more matchups ... 1991: Washington Redskins vs. Buffalo Bills \ 1994: San Francisco 49ers vs. San Diego Chargers 2002: Oakland Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2008: Arizona Cardinals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers 2012: Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers 2013: Seattle Seahawks vs. Denver Broncos 2015: Denver Broncos vs. Carolina Panthers 2016: Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots
  12. I love 'Color vs. Color' games. And, looking back at Super Bowl history there are a number of match ups that could have gone with such a match up. I wish the NFL allowed this to happen more often, because there are some GORGEOUS match ups. 1966: Green Bay vs. Kansas City 1969: Minnesota Vikings vs. Kansas City Chiefs 1972: Miami Dolphins vs. Washington Redskins 1977: Dallas Cowboys vs. Denver Broncos 1980: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Oakland Raiders 1981 & 1988: Cincinnati Bengals vs. San Francisco 49ers 1982: Miami Dolphins vs. Washington Redskins 1983: Los Angeles Raiders vs. Washington Redskins 1984: San Francisco 49ers vs. Miami Dolphins 1985: Chicago Bears vs. New England Patriots 1986: New York Giants vs. Denver Broncos
  13. With the NFL pushing 'Color vs. Color' lately, why can't we have one for the Super Bowl? Especially this year! The match up is ideal for a red vs. blue game. Make it happen NFL!
  14. Fascinating. And, aren't those the Pistons' silver jerseys too?
  15. Oh, this makes my life! That's gold! GOLD! HAHAHA!
  16. This is an interesting article. I'd laugh if the Raiders moved to San Diego. All of the old Chargers fans would be Raiders -- and all of the old LA Raiders fans would be Raiders fan, leaving the Chargers in LA with pretty much nothing. HAHAHA!
  17. HA! That's funny. Expect the same amount of uniforms but with more VOLT™
  18. The ASG selection has more to do with franchise/arena willingness to host than frequency -- especially in this day and age. Plus, there is a desire to hold the ASG in warm weathered cities. Besides, Toronto and NYC (which has International appeal and exposure), I doubt you'll see places like Boston, Indiana, Utah or Detroit host the game in lieu to places like Orlando, NOLA, LA, Phoenix and Houston. But, as far as this year's game goes I think it went to NOLA because of arena availability and hosting capability.
  19. I believe the min. is 50,000 which was established at the time of the merger in 1970.
  20. I think it was because they jerseys were designed before the game was switched from Charlotte to NOLA.
  21. 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.
