Sorry for the tiny image, but the NBA store in Manhattan used the wrong number/NOB font for the Pacers and possibly more teams on a display.

Cool idea, but why?

To try something new?  To be innovative?  To try to draw at least a tiny bit of attention to an otherwise basically forgettable franchise?

Are those lights in the floor? or are are they very concentrated, intense green lights focused on those small areas? I would think they are lights but I can't imagine the T-Wolves getting permission from the NBA to hhave certain parts of the floor not be wooden.

This is most likely projection mapping the ATL Hawks do something similar down here for floor intros

 

 

EDIT: I did 2 seconds of research and found that it is lit from below!

So if Nike can make split numbers for the G-League Hustle...

 

why can’t they bring back split numbers for their parent club Grizzlies?

It's interesting me too, if G-league will have perforated numbers like in NBA, why Nike wasn't do that for Grizzlies? Forgot about it or no nobody cares?

*sigh* I miss seeing the NBA Logoman logo in front of the NBA jerseys; seeing it on the G-League is like pouring salt on a wound...

I was just hoping that with the number of high-quality logos that were released we'd see a little variety in the unis.

^ nah, sadly, it's not cost-effective to make bespoke designs for the G League. not enough people will buy them and the cost of designing (and manufacturing) just one template is WAY cheaper, obviously.

I saw the Sixers jerseys in person, and I have to admit, I like the shadow a lot more in person than I did when they were revealed. 

 

I still don't think it's necessary, and the difference in weights between letters and numbers still bothers me, but it's not the minor disaster that I originally thought it was.

 

I'd love to hear an argument against them being in the top-tier of uniforms in the league (not going to get into a "top N" or a ranking thing, but they're in the highest tier.)

My argument is that it's just a plain retro design, no modern or contemporary elements included to get over the hump.

Does it have to be though? I'm in the camp that the Sixers and Bucks are in the top tier in the league and their designs are both well-executed retro

I would argue the Bucks are more modern than retro, but agree that it's extremely well executed.
