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.
NBA Reverse Retro Series Why hello everyone! It has been years since I've been on the boards, but it's great to be back! With my first topic back, I wanted to tackle a project I worked on for fun late last year. The NBA Reverse Retro Series. After the NHL put out their Reverse Retro series of uniforms, I wondered what it might look like if the NBA did a similar thing. Now it is way harder to bring back a classic look for some teams because they never really left their classic look. The rules I set for this project were simple. Bring back a classic uniform from sometime in each team's history, but altered to fit their current colour scheme. Just like the NHL, team's could go back in their history, even wearing a jersey from a different city. Similar to what the Avalanche did with the Nordiques uniform. To start, this is the teaser, with each team represented and the year which the uniform is based on. I found all the logos and examples of the original uniforms from right on this site, Sportslogos.net. I will add, I won't be making any changes at this point, I finished this project about a month ago, but I wanted to share it here and see what people think of this idea. C&C is appreciated!
