Not sure if anyone saw the video or took a screenshot. But the next 2 uniforms are either red and a gray jersey or a silver jersey. Couldn't tell. 

 

And is that the new NBA logo on the back??

We're supposed to discuss them in their own individual threads. 

 

See @crashcarson15's comment from two pages back.

I think no one has noticed this. Chris Paul is using the Nike Houston Rockets jersey in this picture. ( Could be photoshopped too.)

I noticed this in the Nikebabble in the Blazers' press release (I'm posting it here because I assume it'll apply to every teams' uniforms):

 

Quote

The logos on the uniforms, such as the pinwheel and the NBA’s logo, are now plastic rather than stitched patches, which cuts down on weight, as does using thinner materials for wordmarks, numbers and names, which were much thicker on the adidas uniforms.

That's a shame.  I understand the on-court performance benefits, but I'll miss some the intricate embroidery of the logo patches on authentic jerseys and shorts.

Why not use the version of the NBA logo without the wordmark?

Nike's new waistband has the kind of texture previously seen on the inside of waistbands in the past.  Here's Portland's as an example.

Perhaps this is Nike's response to the flipped-over waistband trend.  Note how the logo plate looks like a tag.

I think they goofed on that one image and put BLAZERS on both unis instead of one with PORTLAND

Someone has probably pointed this out already, but it looks like Nike has updated the championship tag as well. 

 

For comparison:

The SPUR is the real logo, now. I don't know what's so bland about that.

 

Yeah I know the naked wordmark is their original logo, but it looks nicer with background . Spurs (instead of Clippers, Thunder) really didn't need to change their logo,  this is Change for Change Sake (CFCS - remember that acronym ;))

It's kinda funny, because adidas made those jersey in their first two seasons in NBA and now they got problems with making correct arch.

One of the main page articles on sportslogo talked about it.  Not sure if anyone brought it up in the thread though.

The Nuggets and Jazz have teased, but haven't exactly said when they'll unveil them. The next scheduled release is the Hornets on Monday.

I can't find any teasers for Utah having newer jerseys than the ones from last year.

I wouldn't say that, personally. They had the previous "zigzag" logo for 12 years. That's a lifetime in the NBA. 

But if anything, the new one does pay homage to the first ever Spurs logo:

Well, the ghastly pride jersey will be gone for sure. And it's been reported by a few local reporters here that they're potentially getting a gold alternate to replace it. As far as everything else, I think it's highly likely that the other three uniforms stay and just make the switch to the Nike template. I hope not, as I've just never come around to this set at all, but I'm not expecting a big change. 

 

Here's what the team has released (Starks is team President):

 

 

 

I will say that, despite personally not expecting any changes, Starks' choice of words was a little interesting. I don't know that he really had to say anything like that at all if it were just a simple template switch. But then again, he could simply be talking about how we'll love the new tech and such. Or love the new alternate(s). Who knows.

It's lasted a few years longer than that, so more than a lifetime haha. Correctly me if I'm wrong, but I think each of the 3 Spurs logos have lasted 14 seasons. Something about that fact is very "Spurs".
