NBA Changes 2019-20

Recommended Posts

The Jazz have always looked good in a brighter, richer purple, whether it's the jazz note or mountain sets. If they were to swap out their primary color for the purple used in, say, the jazz note set of the Stockton/Malone era, it would complement the jersey template a lot better.

In a vacuum, the blue/green/yellow Jazz set looks okay, but they really hit on something special with their City uniform. Real Salt Lake uses blue/red/yellow and is generally a pretty handsome franchise.

...

It's a good time to consider a 2020/21 switch to shades of yellow and red. 

If the Jazz switch to red as the main color the University of Utah will throw another fit. There is already a lawsuit because the Jazz sold merchandise/apparel with the UTAH wordmark in red.

I'm ready for the Jazz to just embrace every color as their own. Give me a Jazz rainbow. spacer.png

That #11 is too close. 

I think this is the best set the warriors have had since run TMC

No it kept the last design but all the changes made it worse

To their defense...almost every ONE of those uniforms are INCREDIBLE. No design flaws (except for the sleeves). I'm not a Jazz fan but I'd wear EVERY ONE of those uniforms.

Hope it's a bad photoshop, because the 11 kerning isn't even consistent from front to back. I think the 11 is a weird application, but otherwise the typeface looks like a major upgrade over Copperplate. Sad to see yet another team using the rounded faux-impact nameplate, though.

The U sued the Jazz? I don't recall ever seeing that. They have trademarks on their block design and logos, but not the color. And, I don't think a switch to red would cause the U to throw a fit, especially considering BYU didn't throw a fit when the Jazz switched to blue.

I think that’s a bit of a stretch. The lettering around the logo is maybe a lateral move (it’s a more appropriate typeface, but the monospace-style I is pretty weird in the context, there are a couple clunky letters, and it’s not set on the arc very well). The numbers, however, are much better, as is the illustration of the bridge, and while the nameplate lettering may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s a better stylistic complement to the rest of the identity and more functional for long names.

The font is better, but that STUPID "I" will bug me until the day I die.

That's what the guy I know that won the team store design a hat contest told me. I assume he heard it from someone affiliated with the store. The U started a lawsuit because they used the Utah wordmark in red so his design had a gradient in the wordmark similar to the red rock jerseys. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

BYU copied Utah State when they went to navy blue anyways so of course they won't get mad about the Jazz going to navy 😏

Not quite sure about that number font yet, but overall this is definitely an improvement over the last set (which I still liked quite a lot). I’m surprised how much I like the new blue jersey now that the logo doesn’t contrast. I thought I’d dislike that a lot more, but it works better than the yellow circle did.

Is there a good logistical reasons to NBA teams only having the four typefaces to pick from? Seems like other sports don’t enforce that kind of rule, soccer’s complex about fonts excluded.

Knicks are asking the fans what throwback jersey they’d like to see next season. 3 and 4 seem to be the most popular. I’d love to see 4 comeback full time.
