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.
The Bucks haven't been good for a very long time and are irrelevant to some, but I still love this team and their old school logos and uniforms… I've always wondered what the logo on their shorts in old pictures actually looked like and recently found these. The white one's from '68-69, their inaugural year and the green shorts and shooting shirt are from '72-73.
