Your favorite color combinations

Recommended Posts

Boston Celtics - green and white, especially St Patrick colors. Just wished they had a gold uniform with green and white.

Portland Trail Blazers - Nothing special about red, white and black but it simply works for the Blazers. I love their logo as well. Same goes for Chicago Bulls - those black jerseys in the 90s were the :censored:! 

San Jose Sharks with pacific teal, burnt orange, black just looks great as well.

Charlotte Hornets - unique and still cool. 

Miami Heat - Vice is absolutely gorgeous. Wished they just took those colors and made a home and away jersey with them.

Seattle Supersonics - no need to even explain. Though the colors and jerseys might look cooler now in hindsight. 

Seattle Seahawks - looks great.

Boston Bruins - Black and gold always looks good. 

 

A slight digression - New Orleans Pelicans'/Jazz purple, gold and green is a great color combo. Such a shame they dont use them on everything. Why they dont get the name Jazz back is beyond me(I know it's complicated). Utah should just be renamed Saints or Bobcats or something.

 

Worst:
Oklahoma City Thunder. This team's origin and colors is an abomination.

My personal favorite, doesn't even have to be related to sports,  is powder blue and red or even burgundy.

Agreed. Anything from powder to azure works with anything from straight yellow to bright metallic gold. It's all good in that range.

YES YES YES I want everything in fuchsia and blue!  Make red & black a throwback.  There are enough NBA teams with those colors.

I have no problem with the heat’s current look, still looks modern, has seen success. As far as I’m concerned they own this look. If they added a little more orange/yellow it would be perfect.

 

Unpopular?

I will say that the light hue of the blue & yellow creates a bit of a contrast issue from a distance. "WEST" across those jerseys looks a lot muddier from a distance than they probably expected.

I've always liked the claret and sky blue of Aston Villa/West Ham/Burnley:

Also "rave green and Sounder blue":

I agree

 

Also if the Padres ever come back to it full time: Brown and Gold should be here too
