NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

with NBA Live demo coming tomorrow it looks like all these teams want to show their look before it gets leaked by the masses.

 

Demo is apparently out for New Zealand playstation so going to download now. Will post any leaks if I find any

They couldn't make the Harley Davidson logo at least match the color scheme?

 

Would the HD logo look okay in green with Harley Davidson in cream?

The suns new set is kind of like the last set in my eyes. Just ok. The home is DEFINITELY better than their previous home set, but that new road jersey just feels like it's missing something.

While they might not be objectively the worst uniforms in the League, I'm willing to say that the Houston Rockets are now my least favorite uniforms in the League. It's a look that's been around since 2003, complete with a dated wordmark, a mismatched and unoriginal numeral font, inconsistent drop shadowing, an unexciting color palette, such minor tweaks that their Nike updates look like cheap knockoffs of their Adidas predecessors, virtually nothing pertaining exclusively to Houston nor rockets, and all this despite clear paths towards upgrades design ('90s color palette despite my hatred for yellow, recent black alternates, etc.). These are just so bad.

The Nuggets new uniforms are beautiful. A navy jersey with white stripes is perfect for a team in Colorado and the golden Nuggets wordmark makes everything just right.

Phoenix:

               Good: Great color scheme, return of purple on home unis, removal of 90's faux-back burst.

               Bad: Silver trim around the numbers on the road uni, over-serifed wordmark.

Nuggets:

               Good: Everything.

Bucks:

               Minimal changes so they're still decent.

New Orleans looks a thousand times better. Finally an upgrade ?

Have the Pels released their uniforms.

Can't believe they haven't leaked, but excited to see the Spurs set Friday as their last changes were in 2002 and then prior in 1989.  

Predicting the city name on road sets will return in some fashion.

Having sponsors like Harley Davidson makes me feel like some of these jerseys are going to be massively successful. I think the NBA is hurting itself by only selling these in the arena (or is that not the case anymore?).

 

Harley Davidson is very much a lifestyle brand and I think there will be new eyeballs on the team as the result of this sponsorship. And while motorcycles don't go with buck hunting, there's most likely some overlap between fans of each. Sorry to be Rovell-esque, but this really seems like a home run sponsorship.

 

Sorry, but sponsor logos don't belong on sports uniforms.

The Grizzlies just officially unveiled their home (association) and away (icon). They're essentially the same as before with a few notable changes. The gold triangle at the bottom of the collars with the Grizz logo are gone, which I think is for the best. They also moved the giant Grizz head from the bottom of the shorts and made it small one along the waistband which is another slight upgrade. Other than that, and swooshes, it's not much different.

 Worth mentioning, is that the leak from 2K18 was off a bit. In that pic it showed that the light blues inside the side panels on the road had been flipped, which it turns out is not the case.

It would appear you're wrong. Welcome to the present old man.

My first thought was "they couldn't make their color scheme match the Harley logo?" But I'm a little biased.

My guess is plenty of Harley riders would buy a jersey if the jerseys were available everywhere. I know I'd seriously consider getting one.

A clean transition to the Nike template for Memphis. I like that the white jersey ditched the navy arm trim while keeping the blue collar.

 

I'm hearing the Grizz will keep the black MLK set (minus sleeves) for their "Community" uniform. My source hasn't heard anything about the other (Athlete?) edition, so not sure if the lighter "Beale Street" blue set will make the jump.

 

EDIT: The Grizzlies' release notes call the two remaining editions "Statement" and "City," which while stupid still sounds better than whatever Nike was peddling earlier.

 

Semi-related news: NBA schedules should be released next week.
