What’s an underrated set of NBA uniforms?

Current: The Kings.  I love the purple/gray combo.  It is (minus the advert, of course) the best they've ever looked.

Recent: The Cavs primaries when LeBron returned.  Simple and beautiful.

Older: Bucks Irish rainbow; no red.  Just green.

 

 

Easily my favorite look.  Irritates the hell out of me that they never brought those back as a legit throwback.

This felt more like Charlotte copying Dallas' homework

Oh yes, the Nuggets rainbow uniforms.  These are super underrated.  I'm surprised no one ever talks about bringing these back, they're always overlooked.

These really were a Dallas inspired uniform, but in a vacuum, this was a very good set

I've always felt that this Bobcats set was far superior to the jumbled Mavs-esque mess they switched to. Aside from the strange collars they used, I dig everything about this set.

Weird colors, bad logos, jumbled striping, stupid piping, pinstripes, checkerboard, strange collars, knock-off Mavs wordmarks . . . . all the Bobcats sets are trash.  They're not underrated, they're bad.  I don't get it.

Can I also include the FANTASTIC Nascar set too?

I thought the 2007-08 version of the NASCAR set was slightly better since it didn’t have pinstripes and checkers competing and the Black was less out of place.

The 2008-2010 pinstripes set though is the best the Bobcats have looked, but that’s not exactly a high bar. The Bobcats were a thoroughly forgettable franchise the NBA was well rid of.

There’s a really underrated NBA uniform in that photo, but it isn’t the Bobcats.

all Charlotte had to do is to MAKE THIS SET PURPLE AND TEAL PUT HORNETS ON IT AND GET A NEW ALTERNATE JERSEY and they royally bumbled that opportunity no pun intended. That way the pinstripes would fit in. this was always a beautiful set of jerseys to me because it reminds me of trading for michael carter-williams in nba 2k14 as a young lad

Here's my contribution... I think this set of Bucks uniforms are among the absolute best in the league, and they're constantly overlooked.

The logos are good, the colors are great (and have meaning to the city), and the designs are coherent across all four sets (but not just identical recolorings) . . .

 

I love 'em.

I'll pass on the buck head black alt, and I don't love the way the cream outline looks next to white text on the away, but these are nitpicks and I otherwise agree; best the Bucks have ever looked.

I don’t wanna be the biased fan here but I really think the pelicans uniforms are overlooked. Colorway scheme is underrated too. I honestly think the whole pelicans brand isn’t underrated

the side design is the best in the league imo

the earned and city jerseys are one of the best in the league
