  1. Considering all of the 2021-22 jerseys have been unveiled or leaked and the recent leak of the 2022-23 Suns' jerseys this might be a good time to start this thread. First off, here are the Suns leaks ... Here is a fans' mockup from the leak ... A few other rumors or news ... The regular City Jerseys will return. It'll be interesting to see if any teams keep their 75th anniversary City Editions next season. The Pacers, Grizzlies, Pistons, Blazers, Bulls, Celtics, Spurs, Kings, Thunder, Wizards, Timberwolves, Hornets, Warriors and Knicks could definitely pull it off considering the look and colors aren't far off their current full-time looks. Speaking of City Jerseys and the Suns, last year the Suns were testing fan interest in an Aztec-themed City Jersey for the 2022-23 season. It got some pushback so I am not sure if it is a go? The Jazz are switching from navy, green and gold to black, volt/yellow/gold (whatever you want to call it) and white. They'll keep the Jazz note within the identity, but it seems like new logo sets and not just a recoloring is happening. There have been some rumors of the Cavs rebranding. Not sure of the details, but I think I heard they're eliminating blue from the logo? Though you wouldn't really know it's there in the first place with the current look. It'll be interesting to see if the Earned Edition comes back. It seems like it's been an every other year "thing" since Nike introduced them. And, of course, there's the NBA All-Star Game in Salt Lake City and whatever sh** jerseys Nike comes up with for the game.
  2. I searched through threads for the past year and couldn't find anything like this, so I figured I would post it. The idea behind this thread is to post interesting facts or statistics that a lot of people don't know. It'll essentially be the answers to trivia questions. I've got two interesting ones to start this thread off. The Minnesota Vikings were the first team to kick an extra point from the 15-yard line. Tom Brady has played two games at University of Phoenix Stadium, but he has never played the Cardinals there. The Pats have played two Super Bowls there, but only played the Cardinals at home since the stadium was built.
  3. When I was in my early teens, my parents bought me NCAA Football 98 for the computer. I really enjoyed the game, and it was very well-designed for the most part: 100+ schools; full-season play with rankings, major bowl games, and major awards; school fight songs; decent playbooks; something approximating logos on the helmets. It was a very good game for the late 1990s---not as good as the Football Pro series overall, but distinctly collegiate and lots of fun. Anyway, despite the overall quality, there were two details that I have since learned were wrong. One, LSU by default wears yellow jerseys over white pants at home in that game. Two, Missouri's colors are green and gold in the game instead of black and gold. (Come to think of it, I think the latter was also the case in that college hoops game for the Super Nintendo even earlier.) I was wondering: have you guys and gals noticed any similar errors in other games? (Incidentally, Football Pro 98 has the Eagles wearing kelly-green-and-gray even though they were in their second season with their current and inferior color scheme.)
  4. The thread is simple -- what championship teams wore the WRONG jersey, sweater, uniform, etc. I don't want to limit this to just championship winning teams, so maybe the finalists of that league's championship round (ie-Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, Stanley Cup Final, etc.). Here are a few examples to get the ball rolling ... Washington Capitals, 1998 Stanley Cup Finalist Cleveland Cavaliers, 2016 NBA Champions Edmonton Oilers, 2006 Stanley Cup Finalist
  5. I mainly tried making these based off city edition jerseys or just making a new standard court. I use a lot of wood stain because that’s just my style and it seems to be the trend nowadays. Suggestions and ideas are welcomed. edit: im making this edit almost 2 years after i started this whole thing. i just wanna say i apologize for how extra and low quality most of these designs on this first page are. i was quite new to the whole designing thing at the time.. i mean seriously, i copy and pasted a sun and placed it onto the corner of the clippers court like a kid's drawing, and slapped woodstain on everything. but nonetheless thank you all for your support and feed back over these years! Houston Rockets Golden State Warriors Oklahoma City Thunder Oklahoma City Thunder v2 Minnesota Timberwolves Charlotte Hornets LA Clippers Dallas Mavericks New Orleans Pelicans remastered 2021 version click here, its much better.
  6. We have the Players in the "Wrong" Uniforms thread and within that thread I've seen a few "Right Team, Wrong Uniform" entries. I thought I'd separate the two, because it is an interesting topic of its' own. Here are a few to start the thread off with ... Charles Barkley, Preseason 1992, Phoenix Suns Matt Hasselbeck, 2001, Seattle Seahawks Jeff Bagwell, 1992, Houston Astros.
  7. With the Season about to start, I figured now would be a good time to finally finish restart my long awaited 32-team NBA project. Going in order isn't going to be possible for me, so I'm going to post these as I gain ideas for them. Starting with...the Detroit Pistons. I always liked the 2002 recolor of the 90's teal horse logo for Detroit. It actually has some character to it, other than the plain red/blue basketball that we've seen different variations of. THis time around, I'm removing the navy, going full red/blue/silver. Now for the Uniforms. Association/Icon: I brought the recolored horse-head wordmark to the front of the jerseys (just like the 90's Grant Hill-era), I swapped the stripe colors back to normal, and the number gets the logo treatment with the outline. "DP" goes on the shorts leg, while the horse-ball goes on the waistband. Statement: I brought back the fan-beloved red alternate. It's a simple recolor, really, but the fans adored it, so back in the rotation it goes. City: For as much flak as the pistons get for their "Motor City" alternates (especially on these boards), It is an actual nickname for the city. Silver, mostly used for trim on the main jerseys, becomes the base. The stripes bring back the teal, gold, and red of the Grant Hill-era, while black and gold go on the wordmark & numbers. The waistband, shorts trim, and neckline are half teal/half red, corresponding with the nearest stripe. And the new courts: Main: Nothing spectacular, just placing the recolored logo on the current court. City: Old 90's logo returns to center court, with "Motor City" in the mid-range area.
  8. Hi everyone, I have recently started a new project where I have made it a goal of mine to combine all of the sports logos from NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB (and at times MLS) from all of the major cities in the U.S. and Canada to create a singular city logo. I know this has been done countless times before but the way my designs stand out is they are more cohesive. They feel less like something was Frankenstein'd together and can almost act as a standalone logo. Consider this the definitive collection. I say this with confidence because they were all composed in Adobe Illustrator with linework redone to make the designs more seamless, images rendered in crisp high resolution quality, each one taking several hours of work and trial and error and the cherry on top of the cake is that I own my own print shop so I can make stickers and shirts out of these designs. It's a true passion project for me. My journey began when I was first getting serious about graphic design, the summer right before I enrolled at DePaul in 2013. I created a mashup of all the Chicago logos because I wanted my own version of it. All the variations I had seen online did not do the city justice and I wanted something genuinely more badass that wouldn't look cheesy. I dubbed it "The Chicago Beast". It was cool for a few years and then I sort of forgot about it - well in 2019 I decided to take another crack at it and make a wildly popular rendition of this logo mashup combination - you may have seen it online (I made a North Side - Cubs and a South Side - White Sox version. Both featured elements of the Blackhawks, Bears and Bulls. I have made slightly different variations - some including the 6 star Chicago flag and others with different color arrangements. Fast forward to 2021 - A whole year of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown had me yearning for another creative project that I can do for fun. I decided - why not give every city this same treatment? And so I did - "Major League Remix" (#MajorLeagueRemix). I will be posting the designs in this thread and would love some feedback! While I do consider these designs to be 'complete', as a true designer, I know there is always room for improvement, especially since teams change logos frequently. A few things to note (ground rules) for my concepts: They don't necessarily have to use the entire design of the logo in the mashup. They can be as little or as much as possible - the only rule is they have to look cohesive and make sense - no Frankenstein work! I often use past versions of team logos although I try to use the current ones as much as I can. This is because my goal is to make the logo look good, and if I use the core logo, it may not look the best. I have struggled a lot to piece some of these together because of the lack of uniqueness, clean design or symmetry so I have had to resort to alternates. Colors are fair game - as long as they are pulled directly from within the color palette of the city's sports logos. They all have a white border with rounded corners for consistency and also to set them up for sticker printing. That is all! I am so glad to be a part of this awesome forum - I can't think of a more perfect place to post this kind of work on the internet.

  9. Hi there, I am a college student with a vision of an NBA without generic or ugly uniforms. I want each team to have an identity and a strong brand that defines them. Each team will be equipped with five uniforms. Each team will have: 1. Association-HOME.standard white jersey. Nike logo. 2. Icon-AWAY.team's primary, iconic color. Nike logo. 3. Statement-ALTERNATE. team's secondary color. Jumpman logo. Alternate jersey. 4. Community-ALTERNATE. basically an experimental jersey that fills the role of the city jersey. Nike logo. Alternate that can be worn either home or away. This uni will always feature the location name. In my vision, community jerseys are reserved for weekend games to sort of differentiate them and make them special. 5. Legacy-PLAYOFF EARNED ALTERNATE. Every team that makes playoff qualifies for these unis. Embroidered chrome nike logo. This uni will always feature the team's name. _________________________________________ COMPLETED SET Atlanta Hawks Boston Celtics Brooklyn Nets Charlotte Hornets Chicago Bulls Cleveland Cavaliers Dallas Mavericks Denver Nuggets Detroit Pistons Golden State Warriors Houston Rockets _________________________________________ OLD: Completed Sets on Old Templates [Outdated]: Phoenix Suns UPDATE: Phoenix Suns V2 UPDATE: Phoenix Suns V3 Golden State Warriors UPDATE: Golden State Warriors V2 UPDATE: Golden State Warriors V3 Toronto Raptors UPDATE: Toronto Raptors V2 UPDATE: Toronto Raptors V3 UPDATE: Toronto Raptors V3 Houston Rockets UPDATE: Houston Rockets V2 Atlanta Hawks UPDATE: Atlanta Hawks V2 New York Knicks UPDATE: New York Knicks V2 UPDATE: New York Knicks V3 UPDATE: New York Knicks V4 Oklahoma City Thunder UPDATE: Oklahoma City Thunder V2 UPDATE: Oklahoma City Thunder V2 Philadelphia 76ers UPDATE: Philadelphia 76ers V2 UPDATE: Philadelphia 76ers V2 Los Angeles Lakers UPDATE: Los Angeles Lakers V2 UPDATE: Los Angeles Lakers V3 Los Angeles Clippers UPDATE: Los Angeles Clippers V2 UPDATE: Los Angeles Clippers V3 Orlando Magic UPDATE: Orlando Magic V2 UPDATE: Orlando Magic V3 Miami Heat UPDATE: Miami Heat V2 UPDATE: Miami Heat V3 UPDATE: Miami Heat V2 New Orleans Pelicans UPDATE: New Orleans Pelicans V2 Washington Wizards UPDATE: Washington Wizards V2 UPDATE: Washington Wizards V3 Brooklyn Nets UPDATE: Brooklyn Nets V2 UPDATE: Brooklyn Nets V3 Dallas Mavericks UPDATE: Dallas Mavericks V2 UPDATE: Dallas Mavericks V3 Minnesota Timberwolves UPDATE: Minnesota Timberwolves V2 UPDATE: Minnesota Timberwolves V3 Portland Trail Blazers UPDATE: Portland Trail Blazers V2 Boston Celtics UPDATE: Boston Celtics V2 Cleveland Cavaliers UPDATE:Cleveland Cavaliers V2 Detroit Pistons UPDATE: Detroit Pistons V2 Memphis Grizzlies Charlotte Hornets Update: Charlotte Hornets V2 San Antonio Spurs UPDATE: San Antonio Spurs V2 Utah Jazz UPDATE: Utah Jazz V2 Chicago Bulls Sacramento Kings UPDATE: Sacramento Kings V2 Indiana Pacers Milwaukee Bucks

  11. I haven't done a basketball concept in years. It's possible the last time I did, it was hand drawn. Anyway, saw a template I thought I could work with a decided to give it a go. First, and probably a little too obvious, the Los Angeles Lakers...
  12. New Orlean's current uni set is a bit bland for a city with such a vibrant cultural and architectural history. The primary set features the city’s iconic wrought iron work down the side of the jerseys and shorts. "New Orleans" is shortened to "NOLA" on the navy and white uniforms. This set drops the awful, in my opinion contrasting collar. Association Icon Statement
  13. The nice part about having done a series like The 1972 Project, was for five years, two and a half of which were spent actually doing my hand drawn aspects, but the other two and a half were spent squarely on the digital aspects. In that sort of setting, I couldn't sit still and wanted to draw concurrently. As a result, my previous NHL series, which just wrapped up if you're interested and now this NBA series were able to get the hand drawn parts done and then it was just a matter of finishing one to start the next. All that aside, I'm excited to get started on my first NBA redesign. For the longest time, I didn't think that I really "got" basketball uniforms, but after studying NBA and college uniforms, I finally think I shook that mentality. But also, I was following along in the Discussion on fixing the current NBA/Nike uniform system thread and wanted to put some of the suggestions made by myself and other members to use in conjunction with my concepts. So with that, these are the rules (aka my thoughts on fixing the NBA's current uniform situation) I'm running with for this series: Each team will have four uniforms. The Association/Icon/Statement designations will stick around. I think that they're quirky and unique to the NBA and that is okay. The Earned Uniforms are eliminated completely. I get that making the playoffs is a tremendous accomplishment in any professional sports league, but it does feel very participation trophy-esque to me and plus many of the designs aren't incredibly good or anything outstanding. Assuming an 82 game season, 65% of games played must be done wearing an Association or Icon uniform. In real number terms, that works out to 54 games out of 82 in the "home/away" uniforms. This leaves 28 available games for alternates to be worn. I think this would also help alleviate issues like the Celtics/Lakers matchups not even bearing any resemblance to the classic Celtic Green vs Laker Gold matchups of the 80's. It would still allow the Lakers to reinstitute their tradition of white jerseys on Sundays. The fourth jersey slot is open for each team to decide what to do with. Teams can choose to throwback to uniforms past, get incredibly experimental if that's their choice, or continue the City jersey program if they want. (I originally wanted to do Reverse Retros for everyone, but I've decided to approach that team by team). Both the Statement and Team (4th) Jerseys will have the Jordan Brand Jumpman on the jerseys and shorts. Ads are gone, the NBA logo returns to the front of the uniform on the jersey and the shorts. I guess it was still on the shorts, but I have no love for ads on the jerseys at the professional level. Teams can wear what they want in the playoffs. I know some people think teams should just wear home/aways or Assoc/Icons in the playoffs, but I understand the superstition of being an athlete, even if it's not the aesthetically best choice. Not like this matters for a concept series that much anyways. Home team would have the discretion of first uniform choice. I think that one is pretty obvious anyways, and also doesn't matter much here. I think those set reasonable guidelines that maintain team identities but also let the teams have fun and stretch their identities and not break them entirely. But you're not here for my thoughts on fixing the NBA rules, you're in the Concepts thread to see concepts. No funny orders like I have been doing in series' past. Going East to West, division by division. And since I like to hand-draw all these before going digital, those will be linked if you're interested, and also to see how many of the players I chose to hand draw are still with the team that they were on when I sketched them out. Just for fun. So starting us off is the Boston Celtics: Hand Drawn Assocation/Icon Alternate (Jersey Model: Kyrie Irving | Players Still With Team: 0/1) Association - Icon: A pretty mundane start. But there wasn't anything that really needed to change. The only and biggest change is the armhole striping now continues all the way around. Statement: I always thought the Celtics looked good in grey, and that goes back to the sleeved uniforms. So these are noticeably not sleeved. Grey uniforms with the same stripes around the arms and the bottoms of the shorts, just now a triple stripe as opposed to a single color-double stripe. Parquet pattern down the sides of the jerseys and the shorts. No wordmark, just a Shamrock and number offset from center on the front. Heritage: The Celtics fourth jersey is something of a fauxback to the earliest days of Celtic basketball, which combined elements from the 1947-1949 uniforms, notably the triangles on the shorts with the shamrocks, the number on the shorts and the 1949/1950 uniforms which had the single stripes around the arms and neck and the drop shadowed wordmark and numbers. The original idea here was to go fully green and gold, but it didn't seem like it was going to contrast enough, so the uniform became white instead. C&C welcome! Looking forward to getting into this one!
  14. Hey, Decided I'd start a series up fixing all 30 NBA's teams' uniforms. These mostly won't be significant changes to team branding as a whole (except for possibly a couple of cases), but a refresh in some way of every teams' icon, association, and/or statement uniforms. I'll be starting off with a few teams in the Atlantic Division to kickstart things off, noting major changes along the way, and go by standings order: Philadelphia 76ers: While the great core stars and stripes design of the uniform remains unchanged, I decided to incorporate the much more unique and beloved cursive design of the statement uniforms into all of the uniforms, while promoting the red statement uniform to the icon uniform, making a minor change to the pant logo to match the other uniforms. The red uniform also has historically been the main colored uniform for the team, more so than blue. Brooklyn Nets: The Nets' icon and association uniforms get some minor tweaks with the side designs, incorporating the Brooklyn Bridge design from the team's first city uniform. It spices up and "Brooklyn-izes" an otherwise more subtle uniform. The statement uniform receives a gray gradient and the old NJ Nets side panel design to pay homage to the team's history, while also featuring a more traditional Nets font, rather than the ugly and jarring graffiti style used in the current statement uniforms. New York Knicks: The Knicks receive some more substantial changes to their overall uniform look. First, I made the orange and blue a lot stronger and more colorful to pop a bit more, while also removing the silver accents entirely. I also reverted the Knicks to their older, much less stubby team and number fonts they had used for over 50 years prior to 2012 to harken back to the older glory days. The biggest change comes with an all-new statement uniform, taking inspiration from the 90s-00s uniforms that are much beloved. However, it is primarily navy, featuring the team's main orange and blue as secondary colors on the side/pant design. The Knicks' old subway token (NYK) logo also comes back into the fold to complete the look. Boston Celtics: While the classic icon and association uniforms receive no changes for the Celts, the statement uniform is completely redesigned. The chest font is thrown back to the 1950s-60s in the team's dynasty years with Bill Russell, while gold is incorporated into the uniform as a tertiary color, also paying homage to the team's 17 championships. The number also gets added to the shorts for the first time since the 1950s to match the styling. Toronto Raptors: I kept the basic elements, like the chevron, of the Raps uniforms in tact, but I brought back the purple as a main color. There are too many teams out there right now with black and red in my opinion, bringing purple back would invoke some nostalgia in fans and give the Raps a much more unique look that's truly different from other teams in sports. I will be doing the central division next, but let me know what you think!
  15. The Mil, sorry, NBA Champions Milwaukee Bucks have had a plethora of color schemes over the years. The originals were simple--green w/ red trim. They started experimenting with different shades of green in the 70's, and by the late 80's, fully embraced the "Irish Rainbow". Milwaukee then took an interesting turn and followed the purple craze of the 90's, leading to a look that was more "Mighty Ducks" than "Milwaukee Bucks". By the mid 2000's they decided to return to their roots, with the color red being featured prominently for the first time since 1986. Ten years later (sensing a trend?), the Bucks bring back the rainbow, but with a twist--cream becomes the secondary color, with black and blue replacing the bright greens. What I have decided to do is unite all of Milwaukee's past colors in a way that isn't garish (red, purple, light green and cream??), but also reflects and embraces the history of Milwaukee's basketball team. The Logo Purple (from the 90's), lime green (from the 80's), and red (from the 60/70's & 00's) all return to form a new "Irish Rainbow" in Milwaukee's current primary. The Uniforms (remain mostly the same from Milwaukee's current set, but there are a few key differences). The cream is darkened so that is is more legible when appearing on and/or next to white. The new rainbow appears on the side panels, and is now placed on the shorts as well. On the cream Statement, the new Irish Rainbow colors are featured across the chest. The Court What better way to unite the Bucks history than to bring back the Mecca? The pointed edges forming the "M" returns. The new Irish Rainbow is placed on the baseline, surrounding the wordmark.
  16. Hello everyone! I'm going to be sharing my NBA concepts: I started these two years ago, then in this time I redid everything like two or three times before having the almost final version. I’ll post with home/road/third/alternate jerseys for each team and then maybe I'll post some outtakes or other proposal. Before I get into it, major thanks to all the other designers on these boards who keep putting out inspiring stuff. All comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated! 1)Milwaukee Bucks 2)Indiana Pacers 3)Utah Jazz
  17. It feels like 95% of the replies in the NBA forums turn immediately to how Nike has ruined the NBA, people can't figure out who's playing who and the use of non-team colors for the City Edition jerseys. I get the frustration ... to a point. For every Miami or Utah City Edition you get complete garbage like New York and Chicago. Not to mention the Lakers-Celtics match ups where neither team is wearing team colors or the Lakers are wearing gold in Boston against a Celtics team dressed in green. It's a mess. But, it's not NOT fixable. I think Nike and the NBA need to set some rules or standards for the league and individual teams that honor tradition and give fans the most optimal looking match up. I thought creating a discussion thread to hash out thoughts would also clear the 2020-21 and 2021-22 NBA jersey threads from the constant loop of complaints whenever there is a new reveal. Here are my thoughts on the system and how to fix it ... PROS OF THE NIKE/NBA SYSTEM Color vs. Color match ups. When done right they are absolutely beautiful! Standardizes the uniform system (Association, Icon, Statement, City, Earned, Classic). Teams 2-3 alternate courts or court designs depending on which Edition Jersey they are wearing at home. This helps make some City Edition designs palatable and throwback games more fun. Teams that make the playoffs the season before are rewarded and are visually singled out for that accomplishment. When done right some City Edition jerseys have worked really well within the team's brand and even location (ie - Utah, Miami, Phoenix and Brooklyn). CONS OF THE NIKE/NBA SYSTEM 1-2 year turnaround on City Edition jerseys (maybe three or more, who knows anymore?) City Edition jerseys often use non-team colors and are "off-brand." It feels like there are too many uniform editions (4-6 jerseys per team depending on playoff appearance and throwbacks) Past traditions have been thrown out -- most notably with the Lakers wearing white for Sunday games, gold for road games and purple at home, etc. Match ups don't often make sense with teams wearing differing Edition Jerseys -- the biggest crime being a team wearing a City Edition jersey vs. a team wearing a Classic Edition jersey. Why? Ads on the jerseys. This isn't really a problem within the system Nike built ... I just want to complain about it. Now with that said, here are a few things I'd love for the NBA and Nike to fix or standardize with the current system ... Establish traditions and honor them, like ... The Lakers don't wear their gold Icon Edition on the road. They only wear their white Association Edition jersey at home on Sunday and holidays. They don't wear their purple Statement Edition jersey at home. Encourage teams to create new traditions like wearing Color vs. Color jerseys against Division rivals or adopting a gold (or other light color) at home and white at home on Sunday/holidays like the Lakers. During the NBA Playoffs, and more so during the NBA Finals, limit the teams to Association, Icon and Statement Edition jerseys. No City or Classic Editions. White jerseys are worn exclusively at home by the home team. Color vs. Color match ups are encouraged when there's enough contrast (Icon vs. Icon, Statement vs. Statement, Icon vs. Statement). Eliminate the Earned Edition jersey and instead visually single out playoff teams with silver Nike swoosh and the champion with a gold Nike swoosh (or gold NBA Trophy logo where the league logo is placed now for the following season?). Basically there's no need for ANOTHER jersey, just honor the clubs or the champion subtly. Keep the City Edition Program, but alter the program. In the spirit of Utah and Miami's use of the program, keep a theme for a minimum of 3-5 seasons with a new jersey every 1-2 seasons within that theme and style guide. Along with this encourage teams to invest in a City Edition court they can match with their theme and jerseys that they can change yearly or for as long as keep that theme. Just please no City Edition jerseys on standard courts, it looks bad. Also, keep City Edition match ups to a maximum one time between teams and focus on city rivalries like the Lakers/Clippers, Brooklyn/New York, Philadelphia/New York, Orlando/Miami, Dallas/Houston/San Antonio, etc. Establish Edition match up protocols, for instance if the home team selects to wear an Association, Icon or Statement jersey the road team has to chose one of their clashing Association, Icon or Statement jerseys for the match up. If the team chooses a City Edition jersey the road team has to wear their City Edition jersey. Sure there's worry of jerseys not clashing, but this can be avoided through scheduling and design. Adopt MLB's protocol for the Classic Edition jerseys. One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing Classic Edition jerseys ... or throwbacks ... being worn against current jerseys, different era throwbacks and alternate jerseys. I love an immersive experience for throwback jerseys. Teams who are wearing a Classic Edition that season will play their home games against teams dressed in the same eras jerseys. So if the Orlando Magic are wearing their original pinstripe jerseys for the season and are playing against the Atlanta Hawks, the Hawks would dress up in their Pacman or Pacman 2.0 jerseys for the match up. If the Indiana Pacers wore their ABA throwbacks against teams like Utah, Dallas, Charlotte or LA Clippers they could also wear ABA throwbacks for the Stars, Chaps, Cougars and LA Stars respectively for that match up. This could possibly open the door for the Bulls to play as the Stags, Wizards as the Capitols and Raptors as the Huskies to name a few. Make the experience immersive and the league can do some limited run on these throwbacks to push jersey sales to make up for the elimination of the Earned Edition jerseys. Establish a status quo for each Edition, for example where the City Edition and Classic Edition aren't worn more than 6-8 times each. Keep the Association and Icon Editions the bulk of the schedule unless tradition includes the Statement Edition (ie-Lakers I'd love to hear other ideas and what you would do.

  19. Hoping for a miraculous turnaround in the LAC-DAL series, even though the odds are very slim. Here's an artwork for faith: So much going on: [*]- the HollyHOOD sign, [*]- Pat Bev's eyepatch, [*]- Terance Mann, [*]- Kawhi in the boat, [*]- Rondo in the water, [*]- Serge Ibaka, [*]- Chuck the Condor, [*]- but the spirit of Lou Will is the absolute best, in my opinion!!! What do you guys think? BTW, you can see a High-Quality version of the FULL artwork at: https://BenchOnaQUEST.com This has been a 3-month labor of love: sparked by the inspired minds of me, and several other artists. A whole LOT of effort was put into this artwork... It'd be greatly appreciated, if you could RT on Twitter, so more die-hard NBA fans can see it. Thanks, everyone!! Stay safe! Best Regards, Tony, Founder of the #BechOnaQUEST movement P.S. This project would not have been possible without the heroic efforts of Dilomski.. what a hero!!

  22. Hey what's up, everyone! For the past years, I've been known for football concepts, but my first love has always been basketball. I've been doing NBA uniform mockups since elementary. My love for sports logos started with NBA, and I frequently browse for NBA logos on the mothership. And now, after a few years of conceptualizing (I created some new logos two years ago), I now unveil my NBA uniform (for some teams, logos) concepts! Though the teams below are listed by division, I'm unveiling the uniforms randomly. The main component for all uniforms is that the NBA logo on the jerseys is now brought back to the front right side, eliminating the use of sponsor patches. However, the Nike logo is still located in its current position. And for uniformity, I eliminated the championship tag on the back of the jerseys. EASTERN CONFERENCE Atlantic: Boston | Brooklyn | Miami (v.2) | New York | Orlando | Philadelphia (Statement v.2) | Toronto (v.2) | Washington Central: Atlanta (v.2) | Charlotte | Chicago (v.2) | Cleveland | Detroit | Indiana (City v.2) | Milwaukee | Minnesota WESTERN CONFERENCE Midwest: Dallas (v.2) | Denver | Houston | Memphis (v.2) | New Orleans | Oklahoma City (v.2) | San Antonio | Utah Pacific: Golden State | LA Clippers | LA Lakers | Phoenix | Portland (v.2) | Sacramento | Seattle
  23. Hi guys! So I've been away for a little but kept browsing the forum. I've been inspired by a lot of people posting their reimaginings of NBA teams like @Tore and @jb1322 (among others), and decided to give it a go! Some considerations before we start: - I'm a HUGE fan of 90's aesthetics, so some teams might incorporate elements from that era, but not in all the wilderness saw in those years - While it started as a good idea, the City Edition concept has started to run it's course. There are some amazing models (Memphis, Miami come to mind) but there's so much you can do with the story of a city. Some jerseys like Portland don't even remind me of the team they represent. So I've decided to keep it simple: Association, Icon and Statement. I'll try to keep them original enough to incorporate the team's colors, and don't fall on the BFBS jerseys seen all around the league. - I've started doing this during the pandemic, if there are mistakes in the templates please let me know. All said and done, let me present the first team: the San Antonio Spurs. As you can see, I decided to embrace the Fiesta colors fully. The script on Association & Icon is based off the Ebbets Vintage collection released some weeks ago (modified to fit into the design) and the terminations on the three straps around the jersey feature a silhouette of the iconic Alamo Mission. The Statement jersey features the script found on the City jerseys IRL, and the Alamo is more notable here. The pattern on the sides is based on the one found in the warm-up shirts used in mid 90s by the team. Let me know what do you think about it, and all feedback is welcome!
  24. I did some remixes of old jerseys with the modern teams' brand/colors along with the nike template. Would any of these make a good redesign? Let's start with the Bucks: Here's a more boring one with the Bulls:
