And now the official release of the Pistons’ new City set:

These are terrible. Nothing else really needs to be said IMO.

 

How hard is it to give us these?

"The contrast of the solemn black and vibrant teal evokes the menacing intensity of a hornet and the swarming nature we want opponents to feel"

 

?

 

Solemn?

Vibrant?

 

Where's the part that describes them as "boring as hell"?

I’ve wanted these back since they were discontinued 10 years ago, for reasons the team never made clear. They’re certainly far better than anything the Pistons have come up with since then. I hope maybe they’ll be the “statement” jerseys next year when those are due to be refreshed, but I’m not holding my breath - probably more navy or “chrome” crap.

The Hornets', Pistons' and Magic's City uniforms are pretty bland and disappointing. Not sure how I feel about the Nuggets' City set - I don't get why they rendered the rainbow in strips instead of blocks. I like all the others that have been revealed today, though.

 

The Clippers are going to debut their Ralph Lawler tribute uniforms against the Bucks later this month, so they should be revealing them soon.

These jerseys being polarizing is a great thing. You see some of the people on this board shooting down any new idea that teams are trying, but browsing around social media, fans are loving them. The Bucks one, for example. Creativity hasn't been higher and I'm glad some teams are going all out. The T-Wolves one looks amazing, as are the others. And if you don't like a design? Guess what, there'll be new ones next year to change your mind. Being a fan of soccer as well, this variety is welcoming to see in the league.

In other news, I'm glad D. Rose had his career-high night in the Wolves' black throwbacks that are so much superior to their current bland bottom-of-the-league unis. This uniform design is special and feels the way the Wolves should look.

As a native New Yorker, I may be a little bit biased, but those Biggie unis are just about perfect...not too much, but that “Brooklyn camo” (whatever that means ??‍♂️) really pops. Nike hit this one (unlike the Pistons, Magic, Lakers, etc.) out of the park!

My city edition winners so far:

1. Brooklyn

2. Denver

3. Oklahoma City

 

All three are just excellent.

I love that the teal and black is back! Way better than black and white last year.  But I wonder how long they will milk the Buzz City name?  Maybe next year add some gold and call it Queen City.

It reminds me of the NHL during the Burger King and Wild Wing era. Those designs had a lot of hate, but the creativity was nice to see. For me, I like that teams are pushing boundaries again.

Interesting. More than the Flo-Jo's that these are probably based off of, that gray uniform reminds me of the late 90's prototype set that Indy was considering. Especially because of the stripes. U27tFSm.png

 

Does anyone have more pictures or stories of scrapped jerseys and logos?

I already know about the Swamp Dragons. Read a nice piece on the Royals as well...
