Bullets (1996 preseason):

I liked the Bullets’ blue numbers fine, but to be honest I think the white numbers were actually a nice improvement and looks really good.

For a number of years there was a 4 team preseason tournament that also included the Lakers (and I think Clippers?)

Wow. I learned something today.

@Conrad.does this mean the Knicks are getting a throwback this season??? ;)

Probably not. It’s too late to pick a uniform and have it made for this season. Next year is possibly though

It's probably even too late for 2020/21, tbh. Can't confirm that they aren't doing it then, but I have a feeling if they're asking now, it might be for market research for 2021/22. 🤷‍♂️

White numbers/lettering on red look great, IMO - especially with a blue outline. I was a fan of that in the Pistons red alt that will hopefully come back someday.

Someone posted this one twitter about obscure players..Naturally 1st thing I noticed was the number color!

 

When did they invert the numbers like this??!

Normal uniform ^^^

IMO white numbers look way better.

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.

 

I’m not sure. It could be a league thing, or it could be a design preference to keep the toolbox tidy and concise for the factory who makes the garments. I like to do custom nameplate lettering, but there’s no doubt it’s less efficient than having a small set of league-wide standards.

 

Think of trim elements on uniforms like separate SKUs in a store’s inventory. Every single thing (graphic, patch, team lettering, player lettering, numbers, etc.) that has to be printed on or otherwise attached to anyone’s uniform is catalogued so that it can be generated (or ordered from another supplier) when the time comes to create or decorate the jersey.

Not to mention it gives a fairly lifeless and boring uniform some character. I honestly can’t think of a more boring jersey, especially one that lasted for nearly a decade. Maybe it was because most Bullets team that wore them sucked horribly?

I know it’s just a screenshot, but have the Lakers gotten closer to their former gold/yellow?

 

Highly doubt it. I played with the Lakers in 2K19 and the jeserys are just gold in the game. It was weird to play a video game then watch a real game where the uniforms looked considerably worse.

Er.....definitely disagree. The yellow numbers pop well and add life to those uniforms, which are already lively, while the white ones make the uniforms look drab

The Rockets aren't using them.

 

No kidding.

 

From a Jazz fan's perspective, those are Rockets colors whether Houston's currently wearing them or not. (They should be, by the way.)

Anyone know why the Knicks have never had a jersey that says Knicks on the front, not even for an alternate?

Well, they had the home early 80s, but that’s about it. Good question. I guess they just like it that way? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Plus, those shorts don't look like the Nike template.

Those don’t have the slit that Nike shorts got on the side.
