Ugh reminds me of...spacer.png

(side note this is the first uniform the mavs will wear that dirk hasn’t worn)

He didn't wear the 1-year original 1980-81 blue roads, the 1-year 1991-92 green roads or the original home unis, did he?

Yeah, that was quite clever, not sure why they got away from it.

While the Dr. J jerseys were cool, it really just represents a couple of good years in a minor league almost 50 years ago, hardly the stuff of legend. For the most part the R/W/B scheme represents years of irrelevance, and being the forgotten stepchild of New York basketball, and maybe the whole NBA. The B/W combo is a great fit with the current Brooklyn, and saying that they haven’t made any memories with it is a bit silly when they’ve worn it for less than a decade. It’s already the color scheme of when Kyrie and Durant joined them, which is probably a top10 franchise moment. The main uniforms have a classical basketball uniform style, the and the color scheme is unique in the big 4, while also being a nice fit for the location. The thing that’s reaaalllly holding them back is the uninspiring logos. The B is just not good, it would be like the Celtics using the C in their wordmark as their primary logo. Make a black and white Brooklyn bridge inspired logo, go back to the subway tiles on the court, and it could become one of the strongest modern brands

I think the generic aspects of the Nets identity are a feature, not a bug.

I mean it makes sense, considering Dr. Phillips' name is plastered all over buildings in Orlando, but idk if it's a good idea to base a uniform off of.

I am so surprised at how many people love the coogie jerseys. As a Net fan, I think they are ok. Fine for an alternate. But I would have liked something different this year. In no way should they make that their full time look. 

 

This is my favorite jersey since the move to Brooklyn.

It would be cool to see them embrace this style. It gives me vibes of that old Nike ad with KD.

The Mavs are such a dull franchise. Dull colors. Dull logo. Dull uniforms.

 

They have great players, but look so boring.

 

They had a perfect look and threw it away. Why?

I don't know if this is unpopular, but the Maverick green and blue look isn't good either. Nothing about those colors screams "Dallas" or "Mavericks" to me, in fact the two sort of clash to me. The logos and uniforms were also equally uninspired. The Mavericks would really benefit from something fresh to match their young roster.

I don't agree. The Wizards' and Capitals' uniforms from that era were very '90s, but the color scheme itself is a classy-looking combination based on the presidential seal. It's a lot more inspired than the generic red, white and blue.

 

Well, anything red, white, and blue is “inspired” by the U.S. flag. What makes something blue and bronze *more* inspired than something red, white, and blue? Isn’t it equally inspired, just by a more obscure piece of federal imagery?

The very first identity I drew up when we worked on that project had a tile wordmark. What a shame no one thought that was a good idea back then.

 

Sports design is full of missed opportunities. 🙃

He meant the 2008-19 primary roads.

You would think a team owned by Cuban wouldn't have the most boring identity in the NBA.
