After seeing this picture of LeBron James in the 2021-22 NBA Changes thread... I decided to make an entire uniform set based on this CavFantic jersey. I took the sword from the current logo and combined it with the 80's logo, but instead of the current wine and gold, I used the brighter wine and the deeper gold from the original color scheme. For some reason, the Cavs used mismatching numbers and wordmarks(as seen in the above picture), so I decided to keep them here as well.
Hello there. The 2022 NBA All-Star Game is set to be held in Cleveland and it got my creative gears flowing. I'm a big fan of NBA All-Star Games honouring the host cities (I actually liked this year's Pacer-inspired ones more than the average person probably did). The Cavs have a ton of uniform history that provide a ton of options for the NBA to draw from. Here's what I did. THE COLOURS I went with Lebron's secont stint for the colour scheme for the dark uniform. I feel like it looks the sharpest and represents one of the best eras in Cavalier basketball. The wine and navy blue go together so well with the gold. The light uniform is drawn from the 2018-19 City Uniforms, which is inspired by the 1994-97 white uniforms. It contrasts nicely with the dark uniform and honours two famous eras of the franchise. THE LOGOS I actually really like the "star" logo that that was released. It's sharp, recognizable, and honours the city at the same time. The script logos/wordmarks were a ton of fun to make. I used the plume design from these notable uniforms...and combined it with a retro All-Star script I created from the font called "Anhatten." I was pretty happy with the result. The font on the back is from these uniforms. THE DESIGN The design inspiration is fairly obvious. One of the most recognizable sash/wave/swipe designs ever produced on a basketball jersey. I love them and I'd be overjoyed to see them come back for something such as an All-Star Game. THE CONCEPTS The dark uniform uses the classic wine/navy/gold colour combo. The light uniform has the retro colours with the same shade of navy as the dark uniform. Let me know what you guys think! C&C much appreciated! If the feedback is positive to this concept, I may go ahead and draw up some concepts for 2023 Salt Lake City and 2024 Indianapolis.
the cleveland cavaliers launched a new logo a few days ago, a black shield, so i made a little upgrade with the second logo. i left the new logo, the second, and my upgrade. (im not good editing, so its possible that you will see some mistake editing)
I'm a huge fan of the NBA's Chinese New Year alternate uniforms. I think its a really cool and unique way to reach out to a different audience abroad. I knew that this year I wanted to make a Chinese New Year concept uniform for a team. I was thinking first about making one for a team with a large immigrant Chinese population, such as New York or LA. However, I started thinking about designing a uniform for the Cavs. This seemed a bit weird to me at first because Cleveland doesn't have the same connection to China any of the other teams with Chinese New Year alternates might have. However, they are the defending world champs. They have a chance to branch out to a new market in China with their recent successes. The Cav's colors also work perfectly with the red and yellow often seen around the New Year celebrations. I first wanted to design some sort of alternate logo for the uniforms. I played around with a bunch of ideas, but I settled on the logo below. "Cavaliers" is written in red simplified Mandarin script with a gold outline. The sabre that is in the "C" alternate logo is in the background, and transitions to being in front of the second character for some more contrast. It's a pretty different logo for the Cavs, but I think it works pretty well. Now, for the uniforms. I wanted to do something similar to what the rockets have done with their Chinese New Year uniforms, by keeping the template and colors pretty much the same except replacing the English script with Mandarin script. Here are the uniforms. I based my design off of the navy alternate jersey that Cleveland has. "Cleveland" is spelled in red Mandarin script with a gold outline. The red number with gold outline is in its normal position underneath. On the back of the jersey, the alternate Cavs logo lies underneath the collar. Under the back number is a special year of the rooster logo I designed for this concept. The shorts are the typical Cavs shorts except with the alternate logo in place of the "C" logo. All in all, the uniforms are your typical Cavs jerseys except with some new logos and wordmarks mixed in. Hope you enjoyed my concept! Any C&C and feedback is welcomed! If anyone is celebrating Chinese New Year, have a good holiday!
