Going back to when Adidas took over, what was the reason why they couldn't continue with this number font for the Grizzlies?  I can't find the source

the line going through the number would not have worked with the new mesh material adidas used with the new rev 30 jersey style

I also remember there being a rule implemented that banned "non solid" numbers (Stanford early 2000s). Or was that an NCAA rule?

Damn it all to hell.  I was hoping for a Feather-C version for the classic look.  I forgot the Cavs are a trainwreck dumpsterfire. 

Ha. Haha. Hahahahaha. No.

I think that was just NCAA.

I like the Kings uniforms, but they would be a lot better with no side stripes

The implementation of the rev30 template. Adidas couldn't put the line through the mesh in the numbers. The hawks lost a highlight on their numbers too

My hope for the Sixers:

Association: White

Icon: Blue

(And don't touch the current white or blue jerseys at all. They're perfect the way they are...)

The Athlete's Mindset: if possible the 1967 blue throwback

The community: Red

Classic Edition: The AI era black, gold and red 

 

Actually, now that I'm thinking of it, Is there anything preventing a team from using a throwback design for the Athlete's Mindset or the community jersey?

Grizzlies and Thunder need to be first in line for total revamps, bush-league looks.

 

The Mavericks have been hogging the first spot in line for the last several years. They don't seem to want to give it up, either.

The Grizzlies are actually ok.  Teal and black will probably return at some point though.

According to Adande on Around the Horn, the Bucks Moncrief era rainbows are coming back as a throwback???  Wonder where he got that info from?

A bit more info here: NBA | Nike article

 

Jesus...so now every team will have at least 4 uniforms and another 8 teams will have 5.  Ridiculous.

It's not too different then what they had before (might even be less for some teams)

I'm not sure if I missed someone else already mentioning this. 

Do we know if Nike is continuing to have the NBA logo on the back of the uniforms above the names? Also, do we know if they are continuing the gold championship tabs on the back collars?

The lakers already have a pretty set rotation with the gold, purple, white, and black that they seem happy with I wonder if they will replace any of them? 

Yeah. I'm wondering if they'll designate the white as "Association". I'm over the current template. I'd like to see an updated version of the 80s classic, cut the black and maybe bring back the classic double blues.

I'm going to assume they're keeping the NBA logo on the back since the front has the Swoosh logo and the Ads are covering both sides of the uniform.

According to Nike, teams will release their basic white and colored uniforms "this summer," with alternate designs slated to be revealed "in the coming months." Nike has also said there will be "a major launch in early fall."

Going off this picture, the gold tabs appear to still be there. Take that for what it's worth.

It's still better than -write a random number here- uniforms by adidas.
