NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

Looks ridiculous and dumb at the same time for all those teams that didn't introduce a new design as the Statement uni to introduce one with all the others as a "new" uni, lol.

 

Of all the new designs, I like the Cavs' the most, quite unexpectedly, even with the stacked logo and number. OKC's is quite interesting also. All the other new ones don't do it for me, especially Orlando's changes to the black uni are silly and unnecessary. The Sixers' script is too subtle to pair with the block number.

On another note, have we talked about the Nike warmup hoodies? Were the players wearing these before the big reveal last night? Nike's site has a big jargon filled press release about them, but no good photos beyond this.

These were worn at the unveiling.  I assume Nike adds the hood to prevent this situation going forward.

Not necessarily, adidas had hooded on-court apparel last year.

Thanks! Monocolor NOB looks good on white and purple but awful on gold. Didn't expect that.

They just wanted to keep the legend of #HoodieMelo alive

My wife and I were ogling those.  I'm sure they'll be *steep* (e.g., $120+), but they're nice.


I still long for the days of customized team warmups, rather than a league-wide template every year.  But this design (either in the team color or in neutral charcoal) looks nicer to me than the various templates Adidas trotted out.  

 

The one Hayward is wearing is already available as a standard Nike warmup jacket for $130 so I'm sure the NBA ones will be at least $150.  Oh...and they have no pockets so unfortunately these are a no for me.  It is called the Thermaflex Showtime Hoodie.

Non NBA version got prockets, so maybe fan version will have them too.

From nike site: "Side zip pockets store your phone and other small items."

Nah, just generic 2K jerseys.

 

Ok, thanks. :)

Just noticed that Houston's black jersey looks a little different this year -- all-red collar and all-gray arm trim, rather than black with red lines on both of those as it was last year. New look is a downgrade in that department but I suppose brings it more in line with the updated regular set.

The new courts in game

While I "know" Memphis is getting a new/refinished court, don't count on this being 100% accurate. I've never seen the wordmarks colored this way on navy blue, only the inverse:

I wish there were some gold involved in the new/2K court, it is a clean, no-nonsense look.

Incredibly boring.

Red and yellow like the flames when a rocket takes off is the way to go!

I'm incredibly biased, but I still like these a lot.

Also, thank goodness the Rakuten patch is getting color changed on some unis.

I like the Town jerseys, too.  But who phoned in the photo shoot by using the bad graffiti font in the background?

The Nets' BKLN uniform is a real winner. I'd like that and a white version to be their full time uniform 

 

It's crap, just like their regular uniform -- but with fewer letters.

 

At the very least they need to get better numbers.  The Nets are the only team whose summer league uniforms are better than their regular uniforms.

In the best of all worlds, they'd have those numbers, and would also have the nickname on a uniform of the classic style of recent alt uniforms, with the stars running down the side.

New Playoffs and Finals logos are complete downgrade. Absolutely disappointing.

So apparently Tom Gores, Pistons' owner, will have his company Platinum Equity on the floor where the arena name usually goes.
