And what's up with this "Detroit Basketball"??? It's so stupid sounding and generic. As if there's some real sense of civic pride. It's so dumb. We know you play in the Detroit (well actually you don't). And these players would be proud play for any team if they paid them no matter where they're from.

In Detroit's defense, Detroit Basketball is not as generic as most might think and is a little different that Denver Basketball or Atlanta Basketball in that the fans have chanted that from the stands since at least the 80's, maybe longer. It's more comparable to something like Who Dat or Rock Chalk.

John Mason, the team's PA announcer, started saying DEE-TROIT BASKET-BALLL prior to Pistons' out-of-bounds plays during the Pistons' early-2000s resurgence.

Okay, I thought that went back to the Bad Boys era, but still confirms the point that it's wasn't generically applied to this campaign.

I wonder if Nike will take the 3 price point approach for retail NBA  jerseys, just like the NFL?  Game, Premier, and Elite?

 

The 3 price point approach already exists in the NBA: replica, swingman, and authentic.

I don´t think you can buy authentic nba jerseys anymore, i have not seen them in any online stores after the nba logo was moved to the back of the jersey.

correct me if i am wrong

New court design 100% confirms the Pistons have indeed scrapped the logo. Oh well.

 

At least for this year, right?

All the Timberwolves need to do is swap the navy for royal blue, make green more prominent, change the uniforms and use this logo:

Here is a slightly changed image, changing the blue with a little more green.

I guess this would be the appropriate spot to put this information, but what was going to be an inevitable change, the Hornets' home arena in Uptown Charlotte will now be the Spectrum Center, thanks to Charter Cable's purchase of Time Warner Cable that was completed earlier in the year.

Anything Spectrum has such a strong connection to Philly that it sounds weird to be talking about Charlotte.

Lose the white outline around everything and it'll look a lot better.

Apparently the Clippers aren't from Los Angeles, they are from L.A. That is what the team name is suppose to be as of 2015 and we all didn't know because the Clippers didn't outright state it.

This would also explain why the Clippers are allowed to have LA in their logo and not Los Angeles, because the team officially changed it to that, and as per NBA rules, the City name must be in the primary logo.
