Teams will run out of numbers, that of course if sports is still being played and the world stands as we know it.

 

I've heard people say this, but it'll take several lifetimes before it actually happens. The Yankees & Celtics have retired 21 numbers, which is the most in pro sports, with most teams only retiring a handful. If teams keep the same pace up it'll take roughly another 400 years before any team gets close to running out of single digit numbers. And considering expansion & increased parity in sports, the rate of numbers being retired seems to have slowed down lately.

 

It's a bridge you cross if/when you get to it, and as Ben in LA mentioned, you can always add a third digit.

Nike is much worse... 10 different uniforms for each team = GARBAGE

 

Is not like you didn't have this in adidas tenure...

Meanwhile the glued on wordmark on adidas jerseys would fall off in games and they never fixed that. Atleast Nike went back and fixed the issue and since not a single Jersey has torn in the 2 1/2 seasons since.

 

IIRC adidas went back to stitched numbers after that fail with glued. Also nike in first season used aeroswift template and from second they go with vaporknit.

For some reason the clippers wearing blue at home surprisingly looks good on the court they have. For me at least. It's a fresh contrast from all the black and white we've seen. Wolves wearing white is okay with me here. I feel like anything outside of their baby blues or white would have been too much of a contrast (lime green) or too little of a contrast (navy)

 

speaking of lime green, it is so out of place here on the score box there's quite literally no lime green on the unis the wolves are wearing.

Wolves wear so little lime green they might as well ditch it.  They wear it...what...three games in a season?

They wear it every Saturday Home Game. I’d say that’s quite frequent.

What about this poor NOB contrast at Pelicans City Edition jersey?

 

 


Just switch to those colors permanently already.

Lol my thoughts exactly. I think they should have did what the grizzlies did and put the word straight horizontally. Can't imagine what an Alexander-walker jersey would look like on these

How can you allow this to happen? That is bad design all-around.

He should probably make like a Brazilian soccer player and wear "ZION" on the jersey, anyway.

A Classic Uniform matchup going on right now on TNT, Lakers-Suprs at Staples, LA in HOME Gold, and SA in ROAD Black. This is how the games should look. Either White or a Light Colored Jersey at home (Yellow, Gray, Orange) vs the Dark Uniform for the Away team. As long as White is never worn on the Road, I'm fine.

The All-Star uniforms have gone from horrible to absolutely atrocious. San Antonio 96 and Phoenix 95 is the way to go when it comes to All-Star unis. A lot more fun and way cooler.

Eh. I tend to disagree. San Antonio and Phoenix were cool, but I like the Red vs. Blue matchups. Not a fan of the current trend of team or All-Star logo on front without a number.

@kimball

 

Of the three you posted, only the uniform with James and Bryant looks decent to me. It's just so boring to me with the red and blue and black and white - they feel bereft of fun. 
An updated version of the ones I posted would be cool, but they would not have the same radiance though. There is not a doubt in my mind that I suffer from nostalgia bias. This years uniforms are horrid. Agree to disagree though. 
What are your thoughts on the 91-94 All-Star unis? They kinda work for me, might be the 90s factor though lol

Yeah, they're very 90s-ish. I think they were fun for the time period.

^so how exactly does nikes production mean that it's materials are trash compared to rev30?? Nike releasing 10 jerseys for each team= their materials are bad?

It is, but i was talking about design wise, it's greedy to release 10 unis for each team, and makes the league look cheap and amateurish.

To me, my favorite All-Star uniforms in recent years were the ones from Toronto in 2016(?). Outside of the weird short design I liked it.spacer.png

The 2009 set in Phoenix is still my favorite one, in terms of recent, modern sets.spacer.png
