I really kind of like what you've designed here for the Cavs! I'm not sure it's quite there just yet, but I definitely see a lot of potential. 

 

The way you've incorporated the swords actually reminded me of these relatively unknown Cavs uniforms worn from 1980-1983 -- perhaps you could use just one sword, starting it to the bottom left of the 'C' in the wordmark, and carry it across so that it ends uniformly on the other side a la the original horizontal striping. That would subsequently relocate the numerals to the bottom right corner below the sword, and presumably remove the bottom arcing of the wordmark font too. Finally, I'd add the same trim pattern around the armholes and reduced the size of it around the bottoms of the shorts. I think that could give you a clean, modern-ish uniform that employs some of their new branding while retaining a few nods to their past.

 

Always appreciate what you have to say, thank you.  And that's funny you say that because i was already thinking about just one sword basically as an "underline" of the Cavaliers wordmark.  I also agree about the bottom of the shorts, however im skeptical about the armholes, because they might crowd up the top, but I could make it a lot smaller around the armholes and see if that would work.

Alright guys, so I decided that instead of going each 30 home jerseys and then starting the away jerseys, I'd knock out all jerseys for each team before starting on the next set.  Also, I've decided that I will include courts into this series as well!  These are necessarily going to be major differences or anything like that, some teams may be exactly the same, some teams may get complete designs, it all depends really.  So with that, the first team I have fully completed are the Milwaukee Bucks!  Jerseys dont change aside from the new Nike branding.  American Family Insurance appears in the ad space.  With the courts however, I changed the center court logo on the main court to the buck alternate logo, and made the center court logo on the "Fear the Deer" alternate court larger, along with the sideline text appearing on both courts.

Changed up my Hornets concept, as you guys suggested to change the honeycomb pattern to the gradient as the outline, but that didnt look that good either so i took it out.  Instead I have the current stripe on both sides of the shorts, and now have a sublimated honeycomb around the entire uniform kinda like what the hawks currently have.

It's called NBA Buzz City.  Google that and you should find it really quickly.

Just finished the Bulls set.  A little update to their current court, jerseys stay the same, they have a Celtics-esque look that's timeless, and would be a disservice to everyone to change it.

Not to steal another user's idea, but can you make the striping like this? Also, can you put the U.S. Cellular logo on the jersey?

Love the Chicago skyline on the home court!!

Thanks man!  I remembered Cleveland had it, and I actually have a Chicago skyline sticker on my laptop, so those two references gave me the idea for it, since the skyline is so iconic.  Im really pleased with how it turned out.

I've been really surprised how Chicago hasn't added their skyline to their court since its World famous and recognized all over. But I hear it's because none of the buildings wants to "fork over their likeness without compensation". Jeez.

Edit: Just realized that you're talking about the actual buildings that dont want to appear on the court... Yeah that doesnt make a lot of sense to me either.  I mean I have a skyline sticker on my laptop that I paid for and I know that many people own skyline related things that I bet the buildings arent profiting off of..

Changed up my Washington Wizards home jersey and wanted to get thoughts before I continued on with the set and posted my final version.  I took the main points of my first design and tweaked it to make it a bit cleaner, and also took of the second red stripe on the top of the front of the jersey. With it in it wasn't symmetrical with the back and also moved the wordmark too far down.  Included in the background is a preview of the court, which I personally think is far better than the current court.

That's way to many Stars and Stripes, I would tone it done and simplify

Both options are really good. I'd have to go with the first though; seems to flow better.

I really think you can do without the monument on the shorts. Make a few less stripes and stars as well, maybe just one line along the bottom of the shorts of stars.

I largened the starfield and the stripes pattern to make less of both and make both stand out more, and i added navy striping to the side panels.  Before, it looked like the side pinels were sort of floating and i think it looks more structured now.

I actually like a combination of all of the concepts (yours and the one suggested to you) for the black alternate jersey:
