NBA Changes 2017-18

Atleast tell us how different the Cavs are. What are we dealing with here? Are we talking piping? Loud numbers? Stupid use of black? The return of the 80's CAVS wordmark for no reason?

Kind of, yes, no, no.

Loud numbers? hmm I'm gonna guess either larger thick numbers or brightly contrasted in color? or both? lol

Two questions: 

 

Does the trim incorporate the three-color pattern used on the 70s uniforms and the LeBron Era I navy alternates?

 

Which new wordmark is used? CAVS or CAVALIERS?

Sadly, the three-color pattern is nowhere to be seen. Also, it uses CAVS.

Is it consistent with any of their previous identities? If so, any hints as to which?

 

One of the things I find both interesting and aggravating about the Cavs' uniform history is that no two iterations (aside from the brief mid/late-'90s update) are alike. Curious as to whether or not that will be the case here.

Any truth to this? My buddy on Facebook posted these uniforms but I noticed immediately Cleveland is the same so I KNEW they were fake. Besides nothing was posted on the main site either.

This wasn't a look I thought I wanted for the Nuggets until just now. I would love it if they went this direction and kept the design consistent across all uniforms. A great balance of old and new, while still looking modern imo

I was thinking maybe black and ice blue is the way to go for the Nuggets until I realized it's basically an orange short of the dark-ages Cavs, and the Nuggets already used a Cavs color palette (oddly enough, before the Cavs).

If anything, it's most consistent to the current set (in the idea that there is only wine and gold on the home), and the LBJ 1.0 uniforms (busy design, but it doesn't really seem busy)  but we haven't really seen anything like it from the franchise.

That can only mean one thing: clear side panels.

Dallas is making a slight colour change, darkening the blue a tad if you can't tell.

I see 2 great jerseys, Indiana & Miami. The rest can stay where they belong, in the 90s.

Where to start....

 

1) Darkening the blue is a huge mistake. It's going to look really muddled and poorly contrasting against navy. Not that you're going to "lose" it necessarily, but if you have to go double blue, it's best to have the second blue on the lighter side of the spectrum. It never hurts to be able to really see it.

 

2) Beyond that, and more preferably, they should've just taken this Nike opportunity to get rid of the whole identity entirely. They're the team in most need of a total refresh by a long shot. It's a terribly outdated identity (and was never a good one to start with), basically the NBA's answer to the Falcons/Cardinals/Bengals. There's a huge difference between timelessness and overstayed longevity in identity; your look is timeless if it works in any era seamlessly, or doesn't look out of place. Your look has overstayed its welcome, however, if you can still hear Sugar Ray and Baha Men when you see it today. 

 

At the very least, they have to let go when Dirk retires, if not now. Time's been up on this identity for a solid 7-8 years.
