NBA Literal Jersey Series


Recommended Posts

Hey all!


Decided to do a fun jersey series during this NBA offseason. These fun alternate jerseys I will be making will all reflect the team name and team name only, as you will see, quite literally.


I will be moving down in order of division in each conference and in order of city name in each division. I will kick this series off with these three teams:


Boston Celtics: The same look as the Celtics' mascot



Brooklyn Nets: Quite literally the weaving of a basketball net.



New York Knicks: Since many of you may not know what a Knick is, its short for Knickerbocker, which is an older term for a New Yorker. Thus, the retro vest and tie top and brown pants.





More will be coming soon if y'all like this series idea!

Following the previous three are the last two in the Atlantic Division:


Philadelphia 76ers: Since a 76er is not a literal thing/person, I used a colonial 18th century suit design, similar to that on the dribbling Ben Franklin logo.a3sYLtY.gif


Toronto Raptors: Self-explanatory


CC and comments are welcome!


Next Up: Central Division

Decided to finish up today (with work during the week eating up more time) with two more unique ones from the Central Division:


Chicago Bulls: Red bull fur texturing, but featuring the wordmarks, logos, and numbering as "branded on". I also added an optional/extension headband, where the headband literally has bull horns on it, adding more to the gimmick.



Cleveland Cavaliers: A yellow cavalier uniform with a holster for a sword (down the side of one pant leg)



The rest of the Central soon to come...

 I’m interested to see how you’re going to tackle the Thunder, Mavericks, and the Lakers abstract concepts. Bonus points if you can portray thunder without lightning.

Added is the rest of the Central Division:


Detroit Pistons: A literal Piston, because a car isn't literal enough...



Indiana Pacers: Instead of going with a pace car, I went with the checkered flag design since a Pacer isn't a literal thing.



Milwaukee Bucks: Deer fur. Unlike the Bulls, antlers are a bit too large to fit on a headband unfortunately... :(



Added Bonus: A freebie from the Southwest Division, since I accidentally made it out of order...


Orlando Magic: Who doesn't love a good magician (featuring a fun jacket design and cape)!

When I first opened this up on my browser I saw only the top half of the Pistons and thought "that's pretty neat". And then I scrolled down to see the circle on the shorts and about spit my pop on my screen. Fantastic. This whole series has been fantastic.
