NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

I love it! It just goes to show that the Bucks made a huge mistake in dropping red from their color scheme. I get why they did it (get out of their poorly-realized nostalgia phase, new ownership, and avoid the "Xmas" stigma of pairing a deer theme with green/red), but the Forest Green and Red combo is so pretty. It was like if the Canucks dropped Royal/Kelly or the Astros dropped Navy/Orange. They were a team that resolved their identity crisis, only to revive it in a crummy way.

I love the simple green and red look for the Bucks, but I'd have preferred the green version. It looks amazing, it was worn in both the inaugural season  and the title season unlike the white, and they clinched the title in it

Those Bucks throwbacks are vastly superior on color scheme alone, before you even take into account the hideous overthought "industrial" lettering on the new ones.

Missed opportunity. If they are going to force ads onto throwbacks, they should use older or retro looking logos.

 

As mentioned before this logo is unchanged ... but, I do hope future throwbacks go with retro logos. That'd be a nice touch for such a stupid practice.

Of all the uniforms the Pistons could throw back to, they're going with that POS...?

The Pistons aren't one of the eight teams getting a throwback uniform for this upcoming season, so he's likely just wearing these adidas HWC swingman shorts:

Seeing that gorgeous Bucks throwback makes me long for the red and green days.

 

It's sad that the biggest star they've had since Abdul-Jabbar, will not be remembered for wearing the classic red and green.

Btw.. @Sleeper66

The Grant Hill era Pistons are top 5 all time uniform in my eyes. Careful  there. They can easily remove the horse and change the wordmark and you'd still have a timeless jersey.

I hate the absence of color for the paint in Denver and New Orleans court.

Sorry for double post and low quality, but here's a peak at a black Bulls uniform and practice uniforms

Here's a cleaner look:

Looks to be a slightly different version of this uni:

^Looks pretty similar to their '99/00 black uniforms, but with the colors of the striping (at least on the shorts) reversed and with the classic diamond shapes added to the shorts.

I know that set gets a lot of love here, but I became a Pistons fan watching Lanier in the '70s, and I just can't embrace the teal era. "Revulsion" isn't too strong a word when I see those things.

honestly i agree. pistons are iconic red white and blue. but half the nba is either red white blue or red blue white. it was nice in the 90s that teams expanded their color palette. (grizzlies, bucks, kings, pistons, cavaliers, raptors, 76ers, spurs, rockets, jazz

Teal, purple, purple, teal, black, purple, black, teal/pink/orange, navy, purple. 4 purples, 2 teals, 2 blacks, 1 Fiesta, and 1 navy. Very much variety you got there.
