NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

Recommended Posts

The NBA Africa game was a mess aesthetically. I like the different team jerseys like the old All-Star game, but the old unis, the superfluous flags on the backside, and some tiny logo on the shoulder (preview of ads perhaps?) were all very distracting.

Above all else though, the game was terrible. Do people really prefer to see half-speed behind-the-back passes and poor defense in all-star games? It's such a waste of exposure for the league playing their first game on a continent.

Sure, you can say it about every All-Star game but since a regular season game is not happening in a forseeable future in Africa, it's better that nothing. Especially since the fans got the Dream Shake. No disrespect for the Bucks but I don't see how such All-Star game is inferior to the Bucks-Knicks game that took place in London.

^^^^Applause^^^^

People are missing the point it's just another opportunity for a brand to be showcased in a location it never usually would be. Like a rare concert at an area that never had an event like it. Not every day a billion dollar corporation can come in to give the people and it's country a taste of what we take for granted. Exhibition or not...it's special to people. Open your eyes.

I hear ya, but to me it's like being a fan of the Rolling Stones, waiting 25 years to see them in person, and then they don't play "Sympathy for the Devil," "Jumping Jack Flash," or "Brown Sugar."

But whatever, I guess you can't always get what you want.

Those numbers are a big mistake. Nothing to do with anything else in the identity.

here's NBA 2K 16's version..

P.S. you can clearly see there center court logo is the main logo and the paint is almost the same as last year...seriously this team, 76ers and Clippers never heard that rebrand meant change not just a simple update.

Honestly these are a lot better than i though...still looks EXACTLY like the previous ones.. P/S I wish the Drake unis were their primary colors.. Red and black is starting to become played out (too many teams)

Those Warriors opening day uniforms will NOT be sleeved. That shirt is simply a name and number tee (or a shirsey as some call it).

I cannot quite explain this, but I feel like the Raptors wordmark has odd spacing. Boring font with odd spacing. Seems to be a trend. I feel the same way about the Bucks and Nets (spacing OK for Nets, just boring font)

I'd definitely rate the Raptors as the worst jersey wordmark, in terms of visual appeal, followed by the Bucks.

I think I get what you are saying. The font is too small for how spaced the letters are. I agree. I didn't know what it was that looked off, but I think that's it.

Part of me wants to like what the Raptors did. But I'm looking at the product and I don't feel the excitement that a rebrand should bring.

Seeing it all come together on court will be better, but that's solely for the fact that it's on court on the basketball world's biggest stage. It's a given with any professional team that rebrands.

The number font is a flop..what is this. The claw ripped ball is still so..secondary logo.

T.O. on the shorts is super forced, even arbitrary.

I will never understand why teams think they are above putting their city on their uniforms.
