It's amazing how adaptable this template has been. They melded it with a charcoal scheme, the 70's Nets template, and the Biggie sweater to great effect. Even this looked interesting despite sleeves being universally a bad idea.

The Pacers' pinstripes were fantastic.

My only real complaint with the Brooklyn Nets is that horrible narrow number font. It looks bad! And doesn't speak to the local vernacular the way the rest of the outfit does.

Absolutely. Between the team's on-court mediocrity and their stint playing in OKC due to Katrina, these got overlooked, but I think they did a fantastic job of taking the very solid Hornets identity and adapting it to New Orleans. I'd even argue that these are more New Orleans-looking than the Pelicans' threads.

It was a decent set in the block-wordmarks-and-minimal-striping era in  the early 2000’s, but the subsequent uniforms were so much better and would be my pick for some of the most underrated uniforms. At the same time a  better Hornets update than the current Hornets and more New Orleans than the Pelicans

Another underrated set is the Kings 2003/08, especially the home whites. They’ve never done purple better

I actually really like the current Hawks, especially the white jersey. Really grew on me.

I always liked this look for Denver (the rainbows are better, I'll admit)

Those jerseys always looked like NBA: 1994 Eddie Bauer edition to me.

 

These never really got any credit. It's a 1996 aesthetic for sure, and would never come back today. But I think it's aged well.

They looked awesome in person. I also was a fan of these:

What a Big Three that never was.

I always loved the simplicity of the Knicks white jersey pre-black.

The Knicks are gonna start a new era soon. They should kick it off with the return of the championship era jerseys.

I love the Thunder's OKC-set:

Throw together a white version of this (or don't, it's probably not that important anymore) and it's top 5 in the league and maybe the best outside of the classics And they get bonus points for the way they use their tights to change up the colors.

 

They should go with the Oranges as the primary (is there a Orange-primary team in the NBA?), get rid of the white outline.

 

Those OKC unis are probably some of my favorite unis in the NBA

Now, this is the one post-move Nets uniform that I can get behind.

What's more, sleeves are not a universally bad idea, as this Nets uniform was not even the best sleeved uniform in the league.

Three cheers for that Jazz jersey. In a weird way if forms a basis for the preset Jazz set. Which is also underrated.

Oh yeah, the current Jazz set is great -- I would say, though, that the alternates have gone wayward in the Nike era; two in shades of gold-ish and both are too weird for me.

 

The lovely green alternate wasn't around for nearly long enough:
