Is this a team in Ice Cube's new league?

Not sure what you are talking about, but no regardless of what it is.

You must have been in a coma but @KJTALBOT  is referring to the BIG3. Which is a 3 on 3 Pro League with professional & former NBA players.

 

Ice Cube is in charge of it.

I knew the league he was talking about, I didn't know what TEAM he was talking about. Regardless we weren't discussing it.

You definitely wasn't clear about it above. But since we are on the same page..im trying to figure out which Big3 team he might be talking about too! ??

what the hell is the deal with this pic? Jordan never wore a pinstripe-less black jersey, did he? don't understand why they'd photoshop this

The Bulls wore those uniforms in '97/98:

Jordan and Pippen hated the way the material felt with the pinstripes, so the Bulls removed them as soon as they possibly could.

I've never heard about this. Interesting.

I still think the pinstripes are the best alternate the Bulls ever had. In theory it probably shouldn't have worked, but it turned out so good. The ones they've had since have ranged from okay to good, but none of them are as interesting or memorable as the pinstripes.

As I recall, half of their 8 road losses from that season occurred while wearing the pinstriped alternates.

 

Magic, Sonics, Suns, and Knicks are the opponents that I can confirm since I've seen actual game footage of those 4 road games. I believe the other 4 road losses (Raptors, Heat, Pacers, and Nuggets) occurred while wearing their red primaries.

I also liked the pinstripes for the Bulls. They were a nice touch that added some visual interest to the look.

 

Even if you don't like them, you have to admit, the Bulls have done far worse over the years as far as black alternates are concerned. I mean, yikes:

The pinstripes are sublimated in, though, right?  Seems like it was more of superstition thing because they lost a number of games in them.

I remember reading about this. Can't remember where.  I like to think it was Slam Magazine but I can't be sure.  I didn't used to like the pinstriped black jerseys but without the red pinstripes they actually look awful.

Somewhere on fb I just saw a screen shot of Lebron in the black Cavs jersey which I assume is the new away. By the time I checked here to see if anyone posted it, saw no one had, and went back so I can grab a screenshot -- it disappeared. 

 

Rookie mistake - my bad. Fwiw I don't hate it as much as I thought I would from the description.

Might you be talking about this one?

If so, it's just someone's concept on 2k.

Yes that's it. Now that I look at it more, you're right. Seems to be a recolored jersey of this past template with the new font but same old numbers. Good call, upperV03!

72 wins was two years prior where the stripes versions debuted.

 

They 'slumped' to only 62 wins in Jordans last year with solid black.
