Losing the college lanes= big downgrade no matter which team does it

 

Totally disagree. They don’t apply to and are completely unnecessary on a professional floor. College markings don’t belong there.

 

The floor looks cleaner without them as well, so it’s a win-win.

The Bucks released a few more photos of their 2 sets and I just realized that like Washington, our negative space "M" on the shorts is now slightly butchered because of the new template.

I honestly couldn't care less if the college lanes serve no functional purpose for a team like the Grizzlies. The yellow trim was a nice complement to the dark blue.

If the Grizzlies' goal is to become the most forgettable team in the league, they are definitely succeeding. They've managed to take an already dull look and remove any small pieces of personality that it had.

This was my take on the Grizzlies court without the college lanes, but i guess a little creativity is not allowed in the NBA nowadays.

Now that's nice. It's not like it's impossible to make use without college lanes lol

No ones talking about that, but 2k18 trailer gave us the first look (not fully) on referee jersey:

Looks similair to old Champion referee jersey used in FIBA competitions

Gotta love them calling it "iconic" when they've been using the phrase for 4 years on mostly lottery teams.

A contact of mine says "I wondered why they sent the floor off..." Between the new scoreboard, ribbons, and other upgrades, FedExForum should look pretty fresh this fall.

This seemingly confirms my conspiracy theory I had in my head that the Grizzlies were going to potentially be minimizing gold even more. The end of the gold triangle and removal of gold college lanes seemingly confirms it. This potentially kills my hopes for a gold jersey (other than a return of Memphis Tams throwbacks).

From the 2K18 trailer for the All-Time teams, a first look at the new Nike warm-up pants and shooting shirts:

We've already seen a few examples of the warm-up jackets, but this is the first we've seen of the corresponding pants and long sleeve shooting shirts.

sorry if this has been broached already (I have a lot of catching up to do & wanted to ask about this before I forget)...but is this just quirkiness of the videogame or did the Heat un-slant their numbers?

 

I'd really like it if they did, slanted numbers feel really 90s to me

EDIT: I'm dumb. forgot we already saw Bam in the "new" jersey. Plus if I'd gone further in the video before posting I would've seen the Mourning shot

I'm guessing Nike team wear. I think we saw the Sacramento version a few weeks back. Looks pretty good.

Yeah, that's just Nike's templated design for the NBA practice jerseys and workout/shooting shirts. We've seen the Kings' practice jerseys and workout shirts with that design, as well as the Cavs' and Celtics' workout shirts:
