NBA Changes 2019-20

Recommended Posts

I believe "a multitude of leaks" is actually the correct term of venery, like "a parliament of owls" or "a murder of crows."

 

That Mavericks court is a bad joke. While the color palette is intriguing, the Timberwolves are already on it, and what is going on with those wordmarks.

I'm afraid we'll hit the day when the NBA goes full MiLB and teams get a billion different unis and courts, each with their own stupid food-based name, completely destroying any semblance of brand identity left. 

 

I think having alternate courts are fine and appreciated in most cases. But, while I am fairly confident it would never happen, I'm hesitant to confidently say that we'd never see food-base one off promotions in the NBA. I thought we'd never see ads on jerseys.

Maybe the Clippers are trying to appeal to the Raider fans and assume their colors?

 

Definitely a head scratcher

 

Huh. Possibly. The LA Kings as well.

With the wizards moving the arena name to the baselines, I expect them to put an ad where the arena name used to be, just like the pistons.

 

Knowing the Wizards' main sponsors...thinking it's maybe a GEICO ad, Green Turtle ad, or a D'usse ad.

I mean the Clippers have been leaning more and more toward black for years now. There doesn't need to be a reason for their new "core" court, it's just logical based on every other move they've made branding-wise, post-Sterling.

My negative opinions:

I... don’t understand the hawks court? Why? No alternate logo or anything. Just a recolor. I am not a fan of that peachy fleshy color. For the rockets I wish they had a black border like the trailblazers did last season since they have a new one now. Cavaliers using a gold border just seems too much on the eyes. The cavaliers honestly had a top 5 court design because of the perfect combination of black and wine. And don’t forget that iconic skyline stain. And their wood color was perfectly light to bind everything together

Georgia is famous for its peaches, so I guess that's why the Hawks are going with the Peach colors for that court. On a related note, the Magic are doing a similar thing, but with oranges.

I mean we are already getting them for oranges and peaches. Makes even less sense since they’ll be worn nowhere near peach season.

The Clippers divorcing themselves from RWB is a very good thing, it's not as if they're abandoning a unique color scheme.  Going full NWA/Compton would be a cool way to distance themselves from the Glitz & Glamor Showtime Lakers and try to appeal as the "real" LA team rather than the Hollywood one.  

 

That being said Sky Blue & Orange is still the best color scheme for them, however if they insist on not using it a primarily Black look is a fine alternative.

Almost perfect, except for the wood pattern, which is dissimilar from the OG:

I love the Clips in just RWB, because that’s what I grew up on watching them ... however I love that out of bounds city grid and the minimal red and blue kinda works. I could get behind a predominantly black color scheme with minimal highlights of red, blue, orange or even sky blue.

I love the “gangster” vibes it reminds me of gta sorta. I love the accents of red and blue it still adds that touch of clippers but isn’t so much that it’s generic.It’s a good balance. I just genuinely hope in person there would be a better contrast between light and dark black so you can clearly see the design. Unlike the pacers who have a cool line design on their court aswell but you can’t really see it

Yeah, it was an obvious option to have a "Peach State" uniform. After seeing The Bay/Town/City, and other uniforms alike, it makes sense as long as it's tastefully done.

Wherever David Stern is, there's probably steam coming out of his ears at the thought of the Clippers branding themselves as "the Compton team."

I'm surprised that the Clippers have a court with Los Angeles at centre considering they are officially the LA Clippers.  Or did that change?

The Hawks last year was very good. In fact, it was a fan favorite along with the throwback blue. But yeah, some other ones are really ugly.

I know people here can be brutal sometimes so don’t go too hard on me but I made a quick rough edit of the clippers court.

I made the half court line black because I feel like a well defined half court line really sets the symmetrical feel to it. I changed up the line colors so that the red can be more balanced with the blue and any white lines to blend in more and make the court look a bit cleaner. I also made the staples center logo smaller and the court wood brighter. Then I made it so that the map design was a bit more in contrast and would appear in the paint area aswell.
