Players on the "RIGHT" Team, but "WRONG" Uniform

This one is kind of a mix of this thread and “Rare team matchup”, as the uniform Scottie Pippen is wearing is perfectly fine- it’s just jarring to see him in a Bulls uniform playing against the light blue Nuggets (and Carmelo Anthony)

Also Pippen in shiny Bulls uniform

To continue the Pippen party, here he is in a throwback that he never wore but Jordan did.

Weirdly I always associate Yaz with Red Batting Helmets.

so if he never wore that uniform, where is that picture from? Is it a photoshop or a preseason game or something?

Throwback game in 2003/2004.

I think the point was he never wore that design when the Bulls had it originally (Jordan did), but he did wear the throwback version.

This may be posted on page 24 or something (its been awhile since I've been on this thread). But anyways A.I. last hurrah with the Sixers.

This one might be controversial. Horace Grant won 3 titles with the Bulls in 7 seasons, but statistically speaking, he had his most productive season(s) in his 6 seasons with the Orlando Magic. So being completely biased with this one, the Orlando Magic is just as right being the "right team" as the Bulls (to hell with the Lakers). If it ain't the pinstripes, it ain't right.

0416101619a.jpg?resize=300,225&ssl=1 - In 1987, a by then 41-year old Tom Seaver attempted a short-lived comeback with a Mets, and here is a VERY odd sight (more odder than him in the "home" racing stripe Mets uniforms of the 1980s) - the one-year 1987 "New York" script road uniform.

Rocco’s stint as a coach for the team makes that jersey right for him, in my eyes at least.

Brad Daugherty played for the Cleveland Cavaliers from 1986 to 1994. He was injured when the Cavaliers switched to their weird paint splash era, however, he's still in the video game NBA Jam: Tournament Edition on the Cavaliers which is based on the 1994/95 season with the updated logo. This also happened on various trading cards.

It turns out he apparently had an actual warm up and jersey made according to game used auction sites but they just didn't get worn because he ended up retiring before he ever could suit up in it.

I even found a throwback for him. I didn't know the Cavs wore throwbacks in the 90's but this says they did.

Seeing Morten Andersen in this uniform was kind of funny. Speaks to both the longevity of his career, and the longevity of these uniforms.

Old guys in modern uniforms could be a fun category. Like that Morten Anderson photo, Favre in Minnesota or Elway at the end in Denver.

One of the most talked about players in New York Mets history, Mookie Wilson, played the first two and a half seasons of his career in the first iteration of the Mets' pullover jerseys; he'll always be associated with the racing stripe uniforms that followed this set. :D

To my knowledge Teemu Selanne played precisely one game in the Jets' classic 80s uniforms (which they switched from in 1990, two full years before his Jets debut), and it was at the 2016 Heritage Classic Alumni Game. Ordinarly I probably wouldn't even consider a post-retirement exhibition game to count for something like this, except...

...A shot of him from that of all games is what wound up on the cover of his 2019 biography, My Life.
