I like the jazz and kind of like it better than their current identity. I would not be mad if the jazz dropped the jazz current identity and came up with something more suited to match that. 

 

Also dislike the cream Bucks, feels forced. 

 

I know I know, unpopular. I’ll leave now

 

I'm with ya on the Bucks cream jerseys. I like the color, but it's totally forced.

 

On the other hand, I love the Jazz's current color scheme too much, but I love the red rock for the city jerseys.

This is amazing. I'd be cool with this full time.

Matchup of neon accents tonight in Dallas:

Today looks like the best looking NBA day, of course starting with Miami Vice, over to Milwaukee cream, followed by Phily script. Indiana whites are my favorite of Indiana set, and that matched up with Hornets teal is looking good, Minn blue vs ATL red is intersting. Denver's white vs Boston black is nice look. Dallas is the only bad look today. If only Utah played today with their gradient uiform, it would be epic day.

Also, the Pistons wore red socks and tights with their white uniforms today and it looked awful (at least IMO):

The thing with the Pistons is that ever since they flipped the red and blue on the side panels, they haven't looked right. It just doesn't work that way, they never should've touched it.

On another note, I'm fed up already with all those different alternate uniforms. It wasn't good with Adidas, and it's not any better with Nike. I want to see teams in their brand looks, tired of them playing in different uniforms every time. With the beautiful standard set that Boston has, we see them playing in black now, next they're about to play in gray. One alternate uniform on top of the regular home and away sets is enough, as it used to be. And admit it, it used to be a lot more exciting that way. Milwaukee gets a pass here with their cream set since it's so outstanding, and it should be their permanent alternate instead of the black one anyway, which is kinda BFBS.

I really love the colors and stripes but, wish they did something more fun than a big logo. Should have done a cursive Milwaukee.

I think Philly is the only team not to have worn their City sets yet.

Umm, exactly half of the teams in the league have yet to wear their City uniforms... Portland, Cleveland, Houston, Boston, Philly, New York, Brooklyn, Orlando, Indiana, LAC, Utah, Denver, Washington, Minnesota, and Detroit. Several of those teams are debuting them tonight or tomorrow, but still, come on man.

Well, Utah certainly are.

 

The Jazz could really make those Western colours work for them. If they did, that would also free up the purple & gold colour scheme for New Orleans to rightfully re-adapt as their own.

Forgive me for making an honest mistake.

Is there a proper marketing-speak explanation for that Dallas trainwreck? Why the weird typeface / complete lack of connection to the usual Mavs brand? Looks like a computer game that couldn't secure the proper NBA license.

-they went with black because the players have always wanted black (ho hum)

-the green is called "action green" and its to give an update to their old green theyve used in the past

-DAL because they wanted something different from Dallas, Mavericks and Mavs. They used DFW in preseason a few years ago

 

nike speak:

“Only in Dallas will you feel the energy the downtown skyline brings to its Dallasites. Marked by the neon glow on the letters, numbers and piping, the new Mavs City Edition Jersey reflects the swagger of the Big D and the vibrancy of Dallas nights.”

The only problem I have is "DAL". It's just lame. "Mavs" would be okay, "Dallas" would have been great. Other than that, that set is pretty good, but not near Vice level.

I think I'd like Utah's City Uniform/Alternate Court more if it didn't make me think of the Phoenix Suns so much.

I hate all of this, but thank you for the facts.

By the way, Schröder wearing theee pairs of socks like that is incredibly stupid.

 

He's not wearing 3 socks, he cut the top off of 2 other socks. Seen some players do it too
