Why do you guys thinks there's any white on that Hawks jersey? Clearly it's grey. Oh ya and what BraveBird said, no one here calls the city Peachtree. 


The number and side stripes are white.

smart work, here 

 

 

fwiw, 9ish (not including the legit leaks/unveils, of course) of those main color + wordmark color "guesses" are correct 👍

I would love to know how the Sixers do the cream Liberty Bell/snake theme again without just using the 2017 ones again

^ the current Bucks set, which I mostly love, suffers from that too. Their green jersey would be miles better with just white lettering, no cream outline needed.

 

thats how the past set was, partially..  although, even though it was white with a cream outline on the back numbers, the cream was light enough where it looked like the number was all white.

I don't know why Peachtree is a no for me. Seems lazy.

The NOB and ATL logo make it obvious that if they wanted to do a black and peach jersey white was wholly unnecessary. Peach on black looks so much crisper than white outlined by peach. And Peachtree is dumb but par for the course for the NBA at this point

Nets debuting their gray graffiti jersey tonight against the Rockets. Rockets are wearing White. 

 

This will go over well on here.

Yeah, the two different logo treatments are bugging me. I like the court version MUCH better. As it’s been mentioned previous the white and peach pairing muddles the crap out of the design.

Wait, why is it "Peachtree"? Have we gone from airport codes to city nicknames to street names?

 

It is a nice color combo apart from all that needless white, though -- particularly in our current era of minimalist design where outlines are absolutely not required. Love the peachketball logo as long as they keep its use very limited, as they do here. Also like that it's actually peach and not "light orange" a la Atlanta United's attempt at this.

There are 71 roads in Atlanta with the name "Peachtree" in them. There's also Peachtree Center, Peachtree City, and Peachtree Corners. 

 

Elton John has a house on Peachtree Road. Sinatra wrote a song called "Peachtree Street". 

 

Peachtree is ubiquitous in Atlanta.

I'm not arguing that -- I'm saying that, ubiquitous or not, it's a weird thing to have as the identifier on your basketball jersey.

I agree. Wouldn't 'Peach State' or something like that work better?

I agree. If you're gonna go that route, wouldn't 'Peach State' or something like that work better?
