NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

I really loved the 76ers' red alternates in action last night. I really love that they changed the color pattern in the striping. My only gripe would be that they should have used a number font that meshes well with the script wordmark on this and their 4th alternate.

I really hate that script.  The "x" is awkward, it's too thin, and it seems like one of those standard script fonts that ship with word processing programs.

 

I like the concept of the jersey, just think they need a much better script.  I disagree with you re: numbers.  The numbers should be plain, which adds emphasis to the script.  That being said, I'd prefer plain block numbers vs the youth-league style they use.

For those who didn’t catch the game last night, here’s a look at how the Sixers’ red uniforms looked on the court:

The Pistons also debuted their Statement uniforms last night, in Indianapolis:636489694535506118-AP17350040724572.jpg

I’m not really a fan of the Pistons’ gray uniform (though this new version is better than its predecessor), but I do appreciate the blue tights and red socks adding a bit more color to the overall look. That said, with how blue-heavy the uniform is, blue socks would be a better choice than the red.

The OKC alternate uniforms are the best single uniforms in NBA history.

Pretty sure these shiny baggy bad boys are the best (jk)IMG_9177.JPG.2bd80cf2a2410fab4b0d39d9b513f0d2.JPG

Absolutely beautiful. Energetic.

 

These uniforms look like they belong on CNN's election night coverage in 1992 in the best way.

You know what I mean? Y'all feel me?

Count me as another huge fan of these uniforms. I'd personally be ecstatic if the Thunder would design their entire set around these uniforms.

I think OKC’s alts are really good, but not even close to greatest ever. I could probably name 20 or 30 better individual uniforms than that.

Literally every regular home and away Bulls uniform, plus a couple of their black alts. Both the traditional home and away Celtics uniforms, plus their Pierce-era St. Pats. alternates. Every primary uniform the Blazers and Lakers have ever had. The Warriors’ uniforms from the 60’s-early 80’s, plus their Run TMC sets. And those are just the easy and classic ones that come to mind, let alone some of the more specific examples @FinsUp1214 posted above.

OKC finally has a good uniform. It only took them a decade.

 

Sixers uniform would be fine for a Christmas day game and nothing else. The cursive looks silly.

Is there any explanation for the Sixers script having that weird random bump between the "i" and the "x?" It's bugging me and I know it's been noted but there doesn't seem to be an explanation out there.

That's what happens when you design logos using dafont.com.

It would look silly if green on on the uni. The set is fine.

So I tend to disagree with a lot of your takes, but besides maybe the pinstripe Pacers, I agree with your list completely. That being said, I do love the new OKC alt. It will be interesting to see if Nike creates other uniforms with that as their template. By the way fins, good Jazz game last night.

Hey that’s okay! Different opinions are what makes the board great! And thanks! I wish we hadn’t lost Gobert again, but otherwise it was nice to pick up a W after the recent skid.

Good to know he should be back in 3-4 weeks.
