  1. I guess it's that time again -- looking forward to the uniform and logo changes in the NBA for the upcoming 2016-17 season ... THE LAST YEAR OF ADIDAS! As has been twirling around Twitter, UniWatch and the mothership (thanks to Conrad) ... the "rumored" or "semi-confirmed" changes for 16-17 include Sacramento, Utah and Detroit. Not sure if this graphic confirms a change in the Celtics' primary logo? But, I'll post it here for speculation ...
  2. For my first ever post, I will be posting my redesigns for the current courts in the NBA. I do my work on MS Paint so please forgive me if some of my work comes out a little choppy. I do however strive to be as neat as possible with my work. Well, let's get started. First up are the Boston Celtics, a team with a timeless look is hard to redesign but I fixed a few things that I felt were amiss in their current look. The sidelines now read "Boston Celtics", (as they should), and retained is the classic parquet and the signature of legendary Celtics coach, Red Auerbach. The changes are minor but any change is significant when dealing with a team such as the Boston Celtics. Next up will be the Cleveland Cavaliers. C&C Greatly appreciated!
  3. One of the teams I see the most concepts for on the internet is the Oklahoma City Thunder, and for good reason. They have one of the best color schemes in the NBA, but never seem to utilize it to their full potential. I've had a few ideas for the Thunder floating around in my head for a while, but didn't exactly know how to implement them. I wanted to bring in some Native American themes using the Thunder's color pallete, but not go too too crazy with OKC's unique scheme. When it was announced that Nike would be outfitting the NBA next season, I set to work putting my ideas into reality. For this concept I created a custom tertiary logo for use on the shorts. It is a simple "OKC" monogram in the shape of a roundel. The background of the first version of the logo also shows off a special pattern I developed for the uniforms. Called Kiowa Sunrise, it combines Native American design elements with the OKC color scheme. This pattern is the bread and butter of the uniforms, and is also featured on the background of the first version of the logo. I wanted to keep the uniforms really simple and let the colors really speak for themselves. The uniform is simple plain white and features a blue old west style arching "Thunder" wordmark and sans serif numbers, similar to their current font. The main event really is the Kiowa sunrise elements, on the side panels of the jersey and at the bottom of the shorts. A plain white "OKC" logo is found at the bottom of the shorts. The powder blue away uniforms are the same as the homes with a few differences. White replaces the powder on the Kiowa Sunrise pattern, and a powder "OKC" logo replaces the white one on the bottom of the shorts. A white split "Oklahoma City" also replaces the "Thunder". I must admit, I went pretty out of the box with the alternate jerseys. The Kiowa Sunrise pattern is sublimated over the entire top of the black jersey, with an arched "OKC" over the number. The other big feature on these uniforms is the big logo style Kiowa Sunrise version of the OKC on the shorts. Other than that, the jersey is trimness and pretty stripped back to let the pattern talk. What do you guys think? Any constructive critism/feedback is welcomed.
  4. Hey everyone. While it's the most exciting time for Basketball fans these days, I felt an immense desire to update all NBA courts for the upcoming season. I've done like 7 courts already, but let's just start with the Pelicans.
  5. Just noticed this today, NBA 2k17 appears to have leaked the new Pistons logo LONG before we knew about it. On the "Current NBA Teams" AND "league expansion" option, you can see the Pistons new logo in the bottom right corner.
  6. Howdy folks! I started a concept art project for what future WNBA teams would look like should they ever exist. Although not all NBA teams have "sister" teams who share the same arena as their NBA counterparts, I've came up with some ideas for possible "sister" teams to their NBA brothers. The first one I will be sharing is Boston. I present to you, the Boston Charm, sister team to the Boston Celtics. And yes, I've designed the unis and the court. The Charm uses the same exact color scheme used by the Celtics: green and gold. It also uses the iconic shamrock in its logo and on its uniforms. I also added a second alternate uniform which is black and has "Bean Town" written across the front. I know the court is missing a few things, but I just wanted to give the general idea of what the court is expected to look like. The TD Garden logo's placement is different from the one on the Celtics court. More teams will be coming soon and I hope to submit my ideas to the WNBA when they're ready to expand. Also, I'll be doing new concepts for the defunct teams from the early 2000s. I would gladly appreciate any and all feedback. Ask yourself; what do you think about the team name, the court, the uniforms, the idea in general?
  7. Hey y'all: Decided I'd take a shot at rebranding the New York Knicks, a team with a current brand identity plagued by horribleness and bad management. General Comments: Silver will be removed from the color scheme in its entirety, leaving a new vintage blue, a slightly darkened orange, and white as the three colors. LOGOS: Primary: This roundball concept is similar to that of the 70th anniversary logo the team used last season, featuring the new orange from that logo as well. The logo features the Knicks' current ball alternate logo center stage, with New York Knicks Basketball branding and the teams establishment date, 1946. Secondary: This works off of the Knicks' primary logo history, specifically in the past 25 years. However, it incorporates the ball from the older logos while donning an updated "Knicks" text above the ball where all of the letters are the same size in proportion. It holds far more true to the logo of the championship era than the current one, which still holds a bad taste of the Isiah Era. Partial: Simply enough, this is a reversed color version of the ball logo, used primarily on white. UNIFORMS: The new nike branding is added near the right shoulder and Chase will be on the left side as the jersey ad. The sleeves no longer are broken in the middle and are now connected. Both the home and road jerseys cut the silver from the sleeves/neck as well, leaving blue and orange on the home and white and orange on the road. Both uniforms also adopt the new shades of blue and orange, but the fonts remain in tact, although also with silver removed. The home jersey features the partial logo on the shorts, while the road features the secondary on the shorts; both replacing the old primary. While this uniform refresh is not drastic (due to the novelty of the existing uniforms), it makes some much needed changes and is similar to that of the Timberwolves uniform refresh in the late 00s. What do you think?
  8. While watching the NBA playoffs and seeing the Rockets with their alternate jerseys, I noticed that their home and road jerseys were outdated and were due an update. So, I decided to redesign the home and the road jerseys based on the design of the alternate and their new court. Here are the jerseys, I hope you like them:
  9. Hey, guys! I got a little bored with the NHL to NFL crossover I've been doing, so I decided to take a break from it (I only have 3 teams left, so I'll finish it some time soon). I've never done a basketball concept, so I decided to do yet another crossover, but this time NFL-to-NBA. Finished teams: NFC South Atlanta Falcons Carolina Panthers New Orleans Saints Tampa Bay Buccaneers AFC East Buffalo Bills Miami Dolphins New England Patriots New York Jets NFC West Arizona Cardinals Los Angeles Rams Seattle Seahawks San Francisco 49ers NFC North Chicago Bears ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- First up is my home team, the New Orleans Saints. I decided to keep this one fairly simple, with nothing too flashy. Same colors, same number and NOB font as the football jerseys. I'm sure some of the other teams will allow for more flashy designs, if that's what you're looking for. Oh, and for the No. of championships tag on the collar, I'm putting how many Super Bowls they've won, instead of having them all say 0x. But nonetheless, here are the simple Saints home/away sets:
  10. I've been slacking in finishing the Brooklyn Nets uniforms in favor of this. I had three objectives when creating the new logo for OKC. 1. Retain the shield/crest from their current logo (OKC has told Nike they want to keep the crest) 2. Create a unique color palette for the NBA. 3. Tie in thunder/storm elements into the logo without being overly cliche. You know the drill. More logos/uniforms to come.
  11. The NBA is on its way to becoming one of the world's pop culture icons, and throughout its history it has had plenty of teams vie for being the best. This series is more or less of a "What if the NBA wanted to expand?". It seems likely that the NBA could decide to expand soon, and I wanted to see what some of these teams could look like. Each division will receive a new team, based on certain qualifications, history, and geography. There is a total of 6 teams, each with a distinctive brand. Some teams call back to older days, while others bring a new look to the table. So, let's begin. Without a doubt, Seattle had their team wrongfully stripped from them. So, naturally, they are the team to start with. Currently, they have an aging KeyArena. but Seattle is so iconic, they could probably last a few years there. Logos are simple, but blend modern and traditional elements. A new font epitomizes the Sonics name, as well as the updated color scheme, featuring a tweaked dark green, and a brand new shade of *ahem* volt yellow. However, the old skyline logo has returned; a simple emblem of the city. Courts are also fairly simple with some modern additions. There is an alternate court for their "Hardwood Classic" uniforms. The uniforms are meant to be an evolution of the team's arched stripe front; this time it is straight, but with a more modern stripe to match the modern look. White home, green road, a (probably controversial) yellow alternate, with a "Hardwood Classic" combining eras of the team's previous run. I am not the most pleased with this look, but I am open to options. Next team will be up tomorrow evening at the soonest. Cheers!
  12. While recently brainstorming on how to improve the Clips horrendous rebrand, i came up with this idea for a simple clipper ship logo with LAC worked into the sails. C&C appreciated!
  13. What do you think are the worst uniforms for each NBA team? Here are my choices ...
  14. I teased this series in my Bucks modernization concept, but now the series is ready to go. I've plotted out a redesign of the NBA, with the intended goal of breaking up the monotony of most of the league's looks by placing its aesthetics between 70's/80's tradition and 90's crazy. These concepts also buck with current trends in the league, going back to the pre-Rev30 material (allowing for proper twill lettering, pinstripes, split numbers, and effects on the fabric) and having college lines on the courts (as I feel they add more color to the key). Also, a big thank you to Conrad for his NBA Font collection, as without it this project would have been impossible. Completed teams: Atlanta Hawks Boston Celtics Brooklyn Nets Charlotte Hornets (V2) (V3) Chicago Bulls Cleveland Cavaliers Dallas Mavericks (V2) Denver Nuggets (Court V2) (V2) Detroit Pistons (Road V2) Houston Rockets (V1.5) (V2) (V3) Indiana Pacers Kansas City Diesels (Alt V2) Los Angeles Clippers (V2) Los Angeles Lakers Memphis Grizzlies Miami Heat (V2) (V3) (V3.5) Milwaukee Bucks (Alt V2) (V2) Minnesota Timberwolves (V2) New Orleans Pelicans New York Knicks (V2) Oklahoma City Thunder (V2) (V3) Orlando Magic (V2A) (V2B) (V3) Philadelphia 76ers (V2) (V3) Phoenix Suns (V2) Portland Trail Blazers Sacramento Kings (Road V2) San Antonio Spurs San Francisco Warriors (V2) Seattle Supersonics (V2) Toronto Raptors (Alt V2) Utah Jazz (V2) (V3) Washington Federals Division Alignment and Design Compilations So, without any further delay, here's the first team in the league, the Atlanta Hawks! ATLANTA HAWKS When the Atlanta Hawks released their new secondary logo, I immediately leaped on the idea of a fauxback/neo-retro look for them (much like what I wish the Falcons would do). I started out by going back to the red and yellow color scheme, as red solo looked far too plain and black really cluttered up the look (also, I believe that any team that added black in the 90's when they did not have black before should remove all black from their color scheme, i.e. Calgary Flames, Cincinnati Reds, 1998-2011 New York Mets, etc.). So, I simply placed a yellow outline on the new secondary, adjusted the 2003 All-Star Game alternate logo to be the new secondary, and removed the beveling from the "ATL" logo. The court is a retro-styled look, with the new pac-hawk logo at center court, yellow detailing along with the red paint, and the retro Hawk within the 3-point line. Uniforms While I do appreciate the 'Nique-era look, I was not enough of a fan to bring it back full time. So, I decided to hybrid their late-70's look with their early 2000's look. I maintained the current lettering and number font, as it is my favorite part of their current look. Crew neck collars return, as they enhance the retro feel and the Hawks used them up until the Rev30 was introduced. The result is a fusion of classic sensibilities with some modern touches. The first alternate is a yellow alt based on this look (which was easy to recreate, thanks to Conrad's "Highlight Factory" font) that also justifies using the "ATL" script (because of the size issues related to the striping pattern), and the second is a throwback to the 'Nique era (they were too iconic to leave out of the redesign). Up next, the Boston Celtics!
  15. I was bored. Can you guys leave some feedback?
  16. What uniforms do you think are each NBA team's best look? Here are mine ...
  17. What are some of your favorite NBA throwbacks that your team or other teams have worn? Here are mine. I didn't add one for every team. Add yours ...
  18. I was thinking of the number of NBA coaches -- past and present -- that also played in the league, some more obscure as others. Just thought this could be a fun thread to have for basketball junkies out there ... Magic Johnson Los Angeles Lakers (1994). Bryon Scott New Jersey Nets (2000-04) New Orleans Hornets (2004-2009) Cleveland Cavaliers (2010-2013) Los Angeles Lakers (2014-2016)
  19. The 2018 NBA All-Star Game logo was unveiled earlier tonight.
  20. Might as well start this thread off with the Knicks' tweet of Derrick Rose in #25
  21. I'm not the biggest NBA fan, but I root for the Milwaukee Bucks. I loved the Bucks' rebrand from a few years ago, but I didn't really like the alternate jersey. I think that it was a little sloppy and too busy. As I've started to do more basketball concepts lately, I wanted to redesign the Bucks' alternate jersey. I was thinking of just making another black version, but I wanted to be open to other options. I started thinking more about the city nicknames alternate jerseys. I think some of them, like Charlotte's are a little weird, but they have amazing potential. Milwaukee is known as the Cream City due to the color of the bricks of many of the historical buildings around the city. I wanted to make a Bucks jersey based around this nickname. My goals for the uniform was to keep it as crisp and clean as possible. I wanted something that spoke to Milwaukee's traditional, industrial and working class attitude while still being modern and cutting edge. I also wanted to incorporate elements of the color scheme that I thought aren't used enough, namely the cream, blue, and black. Here is what I came up with. The most noticable thing about the uniform is the cream base. This was something I was wanting to see on the home uniform, but it didn't happen. The cream is complemented with the arching "Cream City" script on the jersey, with the number between the two words. This old-school design element hearkens back to the tradition of Milwaukee. The blue and black stripe is found on the upper half of the jersey and also on the bottom of the shorts. I didn't want to make anything too busy on the sides of the uniform, less is more in this situation. A green stripe is found on the bottom of the shorts, with the Bucks logo above it. Overall, the pulls both from the traditionalist past and the future, similar to what the Bucks' redesign did. Let me know what you think!
  22. We've already had some trades. Here's what could be the biggest. Boogie and Casspi with their new threads:
  23. 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 ...
  24. Haven't posted in a while - but here's a quick concept for the Denver Nuggets for next season. I found the logo on a trademarks site. It appears the Nuggets registered back in the late 90's and I thought given the roundel trend it makes sense. Simplified the rainbow city skyline and used modern colors. The home alternate is slightly different than the home and away set and the road alternate reminds me a bit of Marquette but overall I like the color balance. Thoughts?
  25. I know this is kind of an obscure topic, but it's one I kind of find fascinating, because of the rarity of both happening and documentation when the internet was just Al Gore's pet project. But, in the 80's there were a number of instances of secondary jerseys and color vs. color match ups. The Utah Jazz for instance wore their green jerseys at home a couple times for St. Patrick's Day -- once against the Lakers, whom were wearing their purple roads. Then again in 1986 during Karl Malone's rookie season. The unique thing about this occurrence was that the Jazz didn't wear their green jerseys as their main roads -- they switched back to the purple jerseys the previous year. But, the match up again was on St. Patrick's Day and this time against Detroit wearing their road jerseys. I know there were a couple instances of teams wearing secondary jerseys -- I believe the 1983-84 San Diego Clippers wore both red and blue road jerseys and I believe the Pacers wore white and gold home jerseys (maybe on the road too?). I was wondering if anyone had any other examples or were familiar with this era's history. Again, it fascinates me, probably more because it's a real hunt to find documentation.
