Unpopular opinion, but that Gilbert Arenas-era set was the best the Bullet/Wizards franchise has ever looked.

 

They looked awesome, especially in person; the bronze would have translated a lot better to the HD era than it did over murky SD broadcasts. And speaking of, the bronze set was superior to the gold they replaced it with:

Is this a lighting issue or am I going bananas?

It's definitely lighting. Probably from the camera, although the arena could be a factor as well.

 

But I noticed something, it's not identical but that number font looks similar to the one they are using now (minus the gold edge shadow).

Also, did Allan Houston ever play in these?

No, he was at the unveiling but left that summer in free agency to join the Knicks.

Yep, it was modified slightly in 2001 when the Pistons went back to R/W/B (thank goodness for that) but otherwise it’s the same font, lettering too. It’s a pretty established part of their brand now (seeing as it’s going on 25 years old) so it’s probably not going anywhere anytime soon.

Id like to see more teams branch away from the R/W/B palettes.

This.  In all sports! 

I'd love the powder blue and orange look.  Or the black gangsta look. Anything but RWB.

Heat blue vice vs. Utah sunset tonight!

Seeing the Vice blues in person tonight, they look more powder/baby blue than neon

I've found this picture of Mutombo playing with Congo and USA flag on the back of his jersey. Anyone knows what event is?

 

I can see a Celtic and a Clipper (?) unfocused. It looks like an All-Star Game, but has Mutombo ever played an ASG with rainbow jersey?

It's this NBA Africa game. Note that the Celtics jersey with "Boston" on the front is too new for the Mutombo-in-Denver era.

so the patch with the 9 stars is good enough to honor Kobe Bryant and his daughter (who just tragically died couple of weeks ago) in the NBA All-Star Game?

Yes

It would be interesting instead of teal/red/yellow replace it with R/W/B. Just to see what it would look like. Kinda feel like White "Home/Association" sets are kinda of pointless. As long as teams come up with unique sets color on color game would be great. Also if black isnt in your palette don't even bother, at this point is gimmicky same with grey/charcoal.

I don't like how the combo of powder blue and orange looks, I'd rather they go with powder blue and red that the sleeved alternate uni used, I think the color scheme looked great:

I don't hate the MJ/Arenas Wizards look they had apart from that gold alternate, but I absolutely love the (primary) uniforms they have now.

The sleeves and the Sterling stink ruined this jersey, but objectively it's as pleasant, solid and distinctive as the Clippers have ever looked. I miss it.
