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

I agree with Wallace and KG, but I really think that Kemp and Gary look more "right" in the red and green unis

Fair enough, I just picture him in the green and gold arched wordmark unis that he wore for 6 out of his 8 seasons in Seattle.

Edit: Talking about Kemp here.

Jordan as a rookie

The cursive script doesn't really look "wrong" on Jordan to me. No, it isn't the jersey design in which he won six NBA Finals, but he first became an NBA star in this style. He was wearing cursive script when he dropped a playoff-record 63 points on the Celtics (in a loss, and in a series in which the Bulls were swept, but a record nonetheless). He's wearing cursive script on his sought-after rookie card. MJ has no wrong uniform in Chicago...well, except #12.

That's just wrong team. I know he broke in with the Bucs and ended his career in Pittsburgh, but his best (and most famous) years were with the Cubs. He was also on three playoff teams and hit a grand slam in the ill-fated 2003 NLCS. 

 

He was never appreciated like he should've been in Chicago, and after 2016 he never will be. Regardless, the Cubs are the right team for him.

No he wasn't. The Bulls dropped that design after Jordan's rookie season; by his second year they were wearing essentially the same unis they have now.

Greg Ostertag spent 10 seasons in Utah, one season in each of these.

Joe Johnson, spent 7 seasons in Atlanta, only two in these, was an all-star every year he wore the Navy/Red/White duds.

Does this count? This should count.

Really? Wow. So I guess it's his RoY uniform and not much else.

Osterfat wore the double-blues? How did that guy have such a long career?

Most people will associate the late, great Roberto Clemente with the uniform set on the left, but not on the right (however revolutionary it was then).

I think a case can be made that the one on the right isn't wrong. He wore that in the 1971 World Series, which was his transcendent moment. It's also what he was wearing when he got his 3,000th and last hit.

 

Semi-related, has any team other than the Bucs ever changed from an excellent classic-style uniform to an excellent modern-style uniform like they did in the early 70s? Both are great.
