I think this is my issue with it. Why not keep THAT jersey in the rotation why cycle through 3-4 differing colorings of the same template?

 

If Nike and the NBA are insistent on a rotating cycle of jerseys they need to slow it down a bit. Icon and Association should have a minimum and optional cycle of 5 years, Statement jerseys a minimum of 3 years with an opt in to keep the design (there's no need to change just to change) and City Jerseys should be a minimum of 2 years.

 

The current cycle of Statement jerseys changing every two and city every season is too much. It was KINDA fun at first ... but, why change something that works so quickly?

For Statement, I’m pretty sure you can change every 2 years, but you can keep it forever if you want to. But the City is forced to change every year, for some stupid reason.

You can get an exception to wear city jerseys for 2 years like Utah did.

The Bulls and Pacers both look great. I think Indy's would look better without the gray stripes, but these are the best they've looked in gold.

Pacers Statement jersey has been revealed

Here is the press release. Don't know how to imbedd twitter.

Close.......... but no cigar? 🥴

 

So I like the direction; the Flo-Jos were cool. But I would makes some slights alterations:

1. The farm lines, prarie lines, sun rays whatever they are, are not needed. But it they do remain, the opacity of them should be lowered.

2. The number should be moved to all the way to the right like the original flo-jos.

3. The jersey font (Indiana, the number (perhaps)) should italicized.

 

All that to say, this and the other statement/pride (whatever its called) should be the basis of the uniforms not that old circular basketball hoosiers garbage they got now.

Is that from the league or Nike that you'd get an exception/waiver?

 

It blows my mind that teams can't just do what they want. Make a city an assocation or whatever the heck they want to call these things. Turn a really popular statement into an icon. They're boxing themselves in with these names.  Can earned designs not ever be used again? Why can't popular statements just STAY as statements?

 

Back in the late 90s, 4-5 teams had alternate or third jerseys. Some worked. Others didn't. Teams evolved. Now they have time limits on jersey sets? I don't get it. 

 

It feels like Nike has a new design quota they need to meet every years. It's a crappy situation. Change for change sake.

I think they just go to Nike and go “we don’t want a new city jersey and liked the last one and want to keep it” and that’s it.

Loving the new Mavericks court. It’s definitely a lot sleeker and not as “in your face” from last year. The contrast between the inside arc and outside looks great too. Also like the big logo. And thank goodness they finally changed the lighting it looks so much better and even better on this new darker court. Surprisingly the American Airlines logo looks kinda good too

Agreed. I don’t mind the whites either...but the pink and light blue are too much.

Exactly, I remember Jazz was probably the first team who informed about that and then.....they didn't changed anything.

Now after two seasons they might have a new "City".

Nets is a white version of the Coogi jerseys.

They must've come to an agreement regarding the copyright issues surrounding the OG Coogi jerseys.

I hate to admit this ... but, the whole Miami Vice thing is growing stale. 

 

I think they should have rebranded completely to the vice look. They already have ready-to-go black/white/pink/blue shirts and people clearly love the look.

 

There have been other instances where an alt replaced the regular look; the Dallas Stars immediately come to mind but I'm sure there are others.

 

There's nothing inherently wrong with the red/yellow/black Heat. The Vice look is just better.

Not sure if I have already mentioned this but, the all-star unis will be blue and red once again. So glad that black/white fad is over with.

Which is disappointing. I think Utah looks great in green. It's a shame to lose those unis.

I'm always fascinated when teams do this. One that comes to mind is the sophomore Grizzlies set.spacer.png

The font, the color scheme of this black Grizzlies jersey is top 10 all time in my book. The collar color combination, the outline on the wordmark and numbers, the stripe and logo on the shorts.

 

And it looked good on TV!
