  1. Not sure what design you're referencing as "standard" vs. "fauxback" but Duke's has worn the same version of their white and their blue uniform for every game this year except the PK80. They ditched the black trim on both of those designs for this season.
  2. The thing is, the Lakers not wearing purple is a Lakers issue, not a Nike issue. Since introducing the purple set they've played 17 road games. They did wear purple on the road 4 times, so that leaves 13. Of those, 10 times they chose to wear something other than purple, but purple would have been feasible. The games they've played where purple wouldn't have made sense were at Philly and Oklahoma City (both wore blue), and at Charlotte (wore purple). Nike obviously worked with the league to set a staggered intro for each of the designs, but at this point to me it's on the teams if they're not wearing what fans think they're "supposed" to wear for a majority of their games. 19 teams have worn their Statement uniform more than their Icon since introducing them. So it's not like the Lakers are being told "don't wear purple."
  3. The white set has definitely been their third choice this year, and they haven't worn it at home at all. Since introducing the black set on-court, they've worn that one 18 times and the red design 12. Not sure about the breakdown of nationally televised TV games, but not other team has worn colored uniforms as frequently as Houston.
  4. They've worn red in less than half of their games. If anybody is "owning" red, it's the Bulls. They've worn red in a higher percentage and total number of games so far this season.
  5. I think for officials and official scorers, front numbers are an important aspect to retain. Is it doable without? Sure - but I think it would be a painful process and you'd see multiple errors in assigning fouls to the incorrect individual.
  6. 6 of 7 in gray for the Pistons. All of those were with blue socks and tights.
  7. For the first time all season, the traditional matchup of white at home and dark away was not the most common in the league. 19 games (41% of the week) saw home teams in dark and visitors in white. Only 16 games (35%) had the traditional matchup. The traditional matchup has now occurred in only 48% of all games this season. Other interesting observations over the past week: The Knicks became the last team to participate in a color v. color game, doing so for the first time on 1/5 at Miami (blue vs. red). The only other team to have only one color vs. color game is the Kings. The Bulls and Rockets have played the most color vs. color games (14 each). The Pelicans are the team most likely to wear contrasting lower body accessories - they've been mismatched in 50% of their games. Only 4 teams (Cavs, Nuggets, Warriors, Suns) have played 0 games with contrasting accessories. The Pistons have the longest current streak in one uniform - 5 straight in gray. They also have the longest streak of the season in one uniform - 10 straight in white. The most commonly worn uniform is the Timberwolves navy - appearing in 66% of their games.
  8. How many teams take the low hanging fruit, and "unwrap" the new uniforms in a social media post or video between the 24th and 26th? I can absolutely envision that approach.
  9. @Conrad. - do you know what the actual color of that Philly uniform is?
  10. I'm inclined to agree with this. To me it almost seems unfinished. Maybe with the shorts it will come together for me. But right now, other than the cream base I can't get too excited about this one.
  11. If rumors of production issues are true, that's probably why. Looking at that logo at the end, I wonder if the gradient is going to go from red to black on the shorts. So in total from yellow/orange to red to black
  12. Some interesting uni-centric stats from around the league through EOD Monday: The Hornets are 5-0 in home games wearing their white uniform, 4-8 in any other set The Jazz have played color vs. color all 7 times they've worn their yellow uniform The Jazz are also 0-8 in their navy uniform on the road The Bulls are combined 0-7 in their red and black uniforms on the road, their only road wins came while wearing white The Heat have not worn their Icon (regular black) uniform since 10/28, and have worn their Classic black set 14 times since then The Mavericks, Magic, and Trail Blazers are all winless in color v. color games The Rockets have the most color v. color wins (11) The Pistons have the most wins in a single uniform (13 - white) The 76ers blue uniform is the most frequently worn by percentage, appearing in 69% of their games The 76ers blue and Timberwolves navy uniforms are the most frequently worn by volume, appearing 20 times each.
  13. So what color are the 76ers uniform supposed to be? Off gray?
  14. Thanks - I was using flickr but I'll have to do an account with one of those two.
