Wow, that barely took anything at all to completely fall apart. How did we get here? Are these different than Nike's college uniforms? If so, did they really never stress test them? This has to be embarrassing for them at this point. 

I'm convinced now that they've used easily-rippable materials on purpose, just to get headlines drawing attention to themselves every time the jerseys rip. :rolleyes:

OKC should model their next primary set after these:

The colors, sure, but the design, absolutely not. It’s an alright design for an alternate that likely won’t be worn that frequently, but definitely not a good enough design to base an entire set around. They really just need to revamp their logo set and build around that. With regards to the colors on Conrad’s mockup, I actually think the Thunder would be really smart to go with gray as their primary color with their next set (whenever they do decide to do a full redesign), with blue, orange, and yellow as their secondary colors. Scrap navy completely and go all in on gray with the bright blue, yellow, and orange colors as accents. The gray would make for a really unique primary color, and would be much more fitting with the “Thunder” name. And then the blue, orange, and yellow would all provide a nice contrast to each other and the gray.

I’m surprised by the amount of love the Thunder’s jersey is getting. The color scheme doesn’t work...I’m not against gray in principle but there’s not enough contrast between it and the yellow, light blue, and orange. It needs a darker color to set it off. Aside from that, the design takes all the worst parts of the logo, the random lines and the the off-balanced wordmark, and amplifies them. When compared to their Statement jersey, this one feels like a huge miss.

Only Nike could make this atrocious identity respectable. I hope they do a complete re-brand soon.

Ugh, Lakers  has faded into a yellow stain.

  Please bring back the Purple and Gold

Forget Utah. Those gray jerseys are some of the worst I've ever seen.

If this mockup is correct...then the Thunder have had five different alternate uniforms and NOT A SINGLE ONE has had all four team colors (navy, royal, orange, and white).  No, I'm not counting yellow, which is making its first appearance on this monstrosity.  Important note:  I'm not counting the logo.

Lakers home games have always been color on color except Sundays (since 2003).

Lol, I think we’re all well aware of that... And that’s actually not completely true, as they had white home uniforms in their MPLS days and their early years in LA. They switched to the purple and gold scheme with the yellow home uniforms in 1966/67.

This is what OKC would have worn if they existed in the 90s

I'm gonna hold off judgement until we see the real thing in action, but for me, the OKC gray jersey has some good ideas that aren't quite there, and the end result looks corny in a very '90s way, like a Party City store.

Man, none of these manufacturers seem to be able to get it right nowadays. Nike had this problem, they had the toilet seat collars in the NFL, Reebok had the terrible materials for the first Edge jerseys...

Chicago Bulls were the ONLY team to announce wearing their ICON jersey at home at the big reveal..

 

However it seems that everybody jumped ship on the idea..except Lakers. SMH.

I’d be down with that, but I’d go one step further and eliminate the orange. Would also use the darker gray that’s in the word mark instead of the uniform base. Would be very evocative of storm clouds and lightning
