Aaron Dodson from The Undefeated listed The 30 Best NBA Throwback Jerseys is response to Nike's announcement that eight teams will be wearing a Classic Edition uniform (READ: Throwback) this upcoming year.

 

There's a lot to be said about Dodson's list, which needless to say, I don't agree with. So I thought I'd share ONE throwback for each 30 teams that I'd love to see worn. This isn't necessarily the best designed throwback from their team history, but more back to an era relatable to the fans and their history. 

 

Also, in the spirit of the NBA going with more Color vs. Color match ups, I decided to go with colored jerseys, especially since the Association Edition (READ: Home Uniform) will presumably be the only white jersey in team's collections. 

 

Anyways, here is my list. I'd love to see everyone else's opinions on what throwbacks you'd like your favorite team to sport next year or near future ...

One of my favorite Pacers uniforms

Indiana-Pacers-1983-84-Alternate-Jersey-

but just imagine these against....

Too bad the Knicks switched back to Orange a year before the Pacers wore gold at home...

I like your list better than his, mainly because of the Wolves, Rockets, Suns, and Bucks.

Agree with almost all except Phila, Utah and Clippers, though there really aren't any good looking Clippers jerseys anyway and the current crop of Utah ones are basically the same as the Stockton/Malone ones before "Big Mountains" so these are the only other throwbacks to throw back to. I prefer the Dr. J era Sixers jersey.

So, will there be ads on these Classic Edition uniforms?

 

Will kinda ruin the whole point  :D :rolleyes:

As much as I hate the ads, wouldn't it be KINDA cool if they used a throwback logo for the sponsor as well?

You could say that, but since the old jerseys did not have ads, it would kinda ruin the whole point of throwbacks.

Like back to the future, that never existed    B)

Lakers in their Sports Arena blues and the Clippers in their original San Diego uniforms.  Yes.  Other than that I love your choices.

Most of mine have been mentioned - most especially the mountains Jazz purely for nostalgic reasons. 

 

Some other notables of mine:

(No point in going 70's Bullets since the currents are basically a modernized version of that. I liked this one better, anyways)

(I like the Richmond-era Kings better, but we haven't seen this beauty dusted off yet, and it deserves a turn.)

For the Sixers, keep the 1966-67 throwbacks OR do the first version of the black, red and gold uniforms

And era appropriate courts for when they wear them:

The 1995 pacers and sixers versions on the columnists list have to be brought back and worn in the same game between these two.

 

Colors clash well.

Those photos makes it clear that the NBA logo belongs on the front of the jersey, not the back

Definitely. Correct me if I'm wrong, they haven't worn this as a throwback yet, right? If not, they really should.

You're correct. These beauties have yet to make a comeback.
