I've never heard of 5miles.  Might have something to do with me living in Canada.

It's about 8 kilometers.

Rainbow is a nice novelty once in a while, but it would probably get old as a full time uniform. That said, I’d love to see a clean, modern take on it as an alternate. I never liked the versions that forced the blue and gold color scheme into the rainbow design.

 

Whaaaaaat?

 

I've never really like the rainbow look but those yellow alts were my favorite NBA jerseys during their tenure and I wish they kept them as they were. The new design is nice but also a significant downgrade. One of the more subtle issues, removing the logo on the neck piping. I really dislike the amount of teams with single-colored solid piping. Makes jerseys look like replicas.

The skyline and mountains on the new unis do look pretty awful. The usual yellow/white problem. Imagine how much better the new jersey would look with a thin navy stroke around the mountains.

There was a miracle last night.  The Houston Rockets actually wore white, albeit on the road.  I don't follow the NBA, but every time I've seen them on the highlights, they are in red.  Allowing teams to wear whichever jersey they want at home is fine, but I think there needs to be a better system so the team isn't always in the same jersey, no matter whether they are on the road or at home.  The Lakers is the same thing with always being in yellow.  Always seeing them in yellow on the highlights.

Would like to see the Lakers return to tradition. The white jerseys really pop when it’s only once in a while and sucks never seeing the purple.

Still hate the white jersey. They're the Lakers, not the Pacers.

So who are the lucky 10?

  • Portland
  • Phoenix
  • Memphis
  • Chicago
  • Oklahoma City
  • Dallas
  • Houston
  • San Antonio
  • Washington
  • Indiana

Is that right?

 

It really surprises me that the Bulls, Mavs and Rockets don't have a sponsor yet considering their market size and all.

 

I personally have a decent sized list of companies I'd like to see as Chicago's jersey ad, but I have a hunch that the Bulls jersey ad is going to look terrible (when they do inevitably get one).

Were we aware that Nike is apparently determining what every team wears--including accessories--for every game now? This is crazy.

So it's Nike's fault that Miami is wearing the Vice set every game?

The nba is basically whipped by Nike. 

Its pathetic,  but I figured when teams are all wearing their city uniforms one weekend and such.

This is ridiculous. I was actually excited when Nike got the NBA contract a few years ago (remembering the great job they did for 8 teams back in the late 90s/early 2000s), but it’s been really bad so far.

^Yeah, that seems a bit more realistic and believable. I know for the Blazers Damian Lillard (team captain) generally has some input on what uniform the team wears on a given night, so I knew it wasn’t just Nike making the decisions for every team. It’s probably a push-pull relationship, where if a team is pretty indifferent towards the uniforms they wear every night, then Nike takes over, but if a team wants to have input on what they wear and when, then Nike backs off a bit.

It would be great if the Cavs would stop wearing that terrible gray City jersey. No one likes it, it's ugly, and they generally lose in it.

On March 13th the Wizards will wear this uniform for the last time this season, even with seven remaining home games after that.  This is stupid.  Who knows what they'll do in the playoffs but my guess is they'll be wearing the District uniforms at home

PS, I think that uniform above is great.  The stars and stripes uniforms got a lot of hype last season, leading to what I feel is some under appreciation of the standard home set. I'd like to just roll with the standard red and white uniforms the majority of the time

That's kind of what I pictured re-reading the original article after someone mentioned the Heat going on mad benders with certain sets. The Celtics happen to be treating the calendar Nike gave them as law. Other teams just seem treat it more as a suggestion (especially as the season went on) probably just getting emails from the league office occasionally to remind them to wear each set.
