Cleveland Cavaliers New Uniforms

This has the same problem as the Clippers' Statement jersey - the logo and the number don't look good stacked, or, the number should've been smaller.

 

The more I look at it, the more I am apalled at how it got through - it should've been declared unfunctional at first sight. No visual hierarchy whatsoever between those two.

Please refresh my memory, friends: Have we heard any rumblings about the Cavs' fourth jersey? I swear Someone Who Knows Things says it's going to be navy, but I'm hearing it might be orange. I'm extremely skeptical of that.

 

I just assumed it would be navy with a wine "CAVS" wordmark and numbers, pretty much a straight update of their previous navy. @Conrad., is that something you could mock up?

Oddly, the thing that bothers me the most about this uniform is the 3-D shadow with navy under the C logo. I much preferred the flat C, and thought it looked really slick on black. Between the navy on black and mismatched treatment between the logo and number, I'm not a fan. I'm starting to come around on the tire tread pattern though.

What in the world are the Cavs planning for their fourth uniform?

 

I've heard rumors from a few different people about the fourth uniform being gray with "The Land" on it. Since it's the community-inspired uniform, it wouldn't surprise me at all if those rumors ended up being true.

I don't know, but the fact that the Cavs likely won't have a gold jersey feels like a crime.

Is no one else seeing the tire tread pattern here (Goodyear)?

 

Again, given the design timelines, there is no way designers knew Goodyear was going to be the Cavs’ advertiser when this was designed.

 

Plus, why would they cover it up with the sword story if it was supposed to be a tire tread? There are corporate logos on the uniforms, so it can’t be because they thought it would be shameful to base a uniform design element on an advertiser’s product. Is there another motive?
