Adidas. Adidas comes up with all this trash.

Well, let's hope that is true, because then it will end when nike takes over.

Or maybe those guys also have crazy/bad ideas ? who knows

I knew I recognized the Raptors new number font...

Rode the Toronto Transit, and there it was on the transfer:

The Raptors' new font pays homage to Toronto's subway system? Is there *any* part of the Brooklyn Nets' rebrand that the Raps didn't copy? :P

I don't see any way Nike keeps the sleeves. If they were so great, I'm sure we would have already seen Nike's own version of it in college basketball. I'm actually curious to see if the sublimated back designs make it to Nike NBA jerseys.

Anyone know what the actual name of the number font is? (Pretty sure it's not "We the Numbers")

Highway Gothic? I'm pretty sure it's the same font used for the US, Canada and other countries' highway and road signs.

Nope, the current highway font is Clearview, and it has significant differences from the Raptors' numbers and that TTC ticket.

I HATE CLEARVIEW SO MUCH. I don't find it more legible than the old font (the lowercase l is especially distracting), and it's juuust different enough to be distracting when I see it instead of the old one.

The only issue I have with it is the "1". That serif is very ill-fitting, and it looks especially bad on route number signs. What cheeses me is how Illinois often uses the old and new fonts together on new signage.

They should add the 4th star, for the death of the franchise

The black stars should be horizonal across one of the straps, to simulate a black band.

I like these stars better than the circle they started with only because the circle looked more like a logo than a tribute from any distance other than close up.

The Christmas jerseys are gorgeous. The Thunder look so much better in these versus their regular unis it's silly. I wish they would lighten them to their light blue color and make them their regular jerseys.

After seeing the memorial stars on the 76ers jerseys, I'm surprised the Cavs haven't done anything on their uniforms for Hot Rod Williams. He was a popular (and very good) player on the team and played most of his career in Cleveland.

I don't want to be disrespectful to the great Nets star Daryl Dawkins by riffing on this metaphor. But I will say that the Sixers' situation represents a failing of the team's ownership, and reveals ownership's appalling short-sightedness. Their recent hirings have undercut and undermined the visionary GM, whose programme is designed to play out over several years and was never intended to return benefits in the short term.

Christmas jerseys looked good on the court. Only thing I would have liked to see changed would be the numerals matching the font. Oh, well. Perfection is always hard to come by, and why complain? Good looking match ups all day and night.

Yeah, and now it's back to the normal boring schedule. Teams will have to do with only 5 or 6 sets of uniforms in their rotation.

pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffft

You think this is a failure of ownership? that they've been sitting here getting fat on central revenue with a bare-bones operation and just decided to stop that train? I think it's pretty clear that the NBA stepped in to stop a cornerstone franchise from clowning the NBA economic system any further. The Knicks and Lakers may suck, but they mean well.

The Sixers weren't clowning anything. Hinkie has an approach that can work only in the long term; the intervening bad seasons are part of the process.

Hinkie's plan sure is unorthodox. But, by hiring him and empowering him to implement that plan, the team's ownership is obligated to let him see it through. Hamstringing him mid-way is a betrayal.

Like admiral said, this was Adam Silver calling up the owner and being all like "bro - you gotta stop this crap. Now" and Joshua Harris was all like "what you want me to do now though" and Silver be all like "just chill those *s out and wait for the wolf (colangelo) who will be coming directly" and Harris be all "Colangelo? Poop, negro - that's all you had to say!"

You're right though - they should have waited until the offseason. The worst thing would be to start 1-30 and then get just better enough to cost themselves the top pick. The thing with this "process" though is that there's no end in sight. Hinki wanted a 5-7 year extension because he said at one point that's how long it could take. That makes no sense, because the guys they're picking up early on in "the process" won't be around by then.

I'd give it one more season, see if they can get the guy from LSU and have him with Noel, Embiid if he can ever walk again, and Okafor if he doesn't end up with bullets in his brainless dome.

Whether they get the kid or not, they simply have to switch gears after this year or the team might as well move (which honestly I think could be part of the plan anyway). These owners aren't committed to the city or team at all and also own the now-vacant prudential center. True they are building team offices in Camden NJ which would counter the speculation that they want to move to north jersey, but I wouldn't rule anything out.

I honestly don't understand why anybody would want to move their franchise to North Jersey again. That area didn't care about their team when they were going to back-to-back finals. Why would they ever?

Comparing Colangelo stepping in to clean up the Sixers mess to the Marvin death scene is so oddly perfect. I can just picture the Owners of the Sixers standing there covered in blood and brain matter while Colangelo sprays them down with a hose. I wonder if Adam Silver is going to get a new oak bedroom set out of all of this.
