Hi guys! I dont know where to start to be honest so I will keep it short. First of I must tell you that my concepts would not be possible without @Hoopladawg87! He has given me much thought and guidance throughout the creative processes which resulted into this. I can't thank you enough, Hoopla :) 
One thing you guys will probably notice that my template is basically a cheap copy of his, which it really is, and imitation is the sincerest form of flattery after all! So with my limited skills and an eye to detail severely lacking, I tried to make my template like his with the hopes that it would give the concepts a heightened sense of realism. 

 

As this is my first post on this great forum it felt only natural to present my favourite team, arguably the greatest team in the NBA - the Boston Celtics. 

 

The Boston Celtics home and away uniforms, now named association and icon, are timeless. Clean, classic and one of the most recognizable in sports. Ever since I saw the St. Patricks uniform I could never shake the feeling that gold is such a beautiful complementary colour to the kelly green and white. I made several renditions but I felt the gold trim was too much, too invasive and bordering on sacrilege. The route, or solution, was to change the Nike logo and players name on the back to gold. A minor change, almost unrecognizable but I feel it is in tune with Nike's minimalistic direction. 

 

All comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated!

Next up is the New York Knicks. Nothing out of the ordinary. I removed the grey trim as I prefer the contrasts to shine. 

I have never liked the fact that Knicks use New York for home games. My firm belief is, with some exceptions, that the home uniform should have the team name and the away should have the city name on it. This does not apply for alternates. So I created a Knicks-wordmark, kinda halfassed but I tried lol. I have also added a city edition this time around.


New York was once known as New Amsterdam as it was a Dutch settlement on Manhattan and therefore a part of the New Netherlands. Safe to say, it didnt exactly pan out the way the Dutch wanted. The Dutch influence can still be seen through the flag of New York as it is inspired by the Prince's flag. This is also where Knicks got their colours. On the waist I used windmill sail shield from the Seal of New York City and I added 1625 above the laundry tag as this is when the founding "happened". As a matter of fact, the founding of New Amsterdam did not happen in 1625 but for some reason 1625 is what appears on both the New York City seal and flag. Just thought it was a fun homage.
Also, I didnt bother to change the player name which I probably should've done in hindsight. All comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated!

Ever since Miami Heat released their Vice-themed City edition uniform I was hooked. I absolutely loved the colours and execution! As soon as I saw the leaked photos of their next sets I just knew I had to make a rendition of them. The thought was to just recolour the main Heat set but with slight changes. I didnt like the side panels on the original look so I scrapped them to keep it as much within the Vice-theme as possible. I removed the burning Heat logo on the shorts as well as I find it a bit tacky. 
(In hindsight, I should've used Wade as Miami will always be Wade-County.) - changed to Wade. All comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated!

These are all such simple improvements but they make all of them so much cleaner. Only suggestion I might make is white letters and numbers on Miami's City Edition. I think that would just pop better on the light blue.

Thank you so much for your kind words :) Your suggestions were very spot-on! The white complements the blue very nicely. Here is the revised version of the City edition, I hope you like it:

@Blindsay do you have any suggestions to how high? I feel perhaps the back numeral is too high as well?

Here is the updated New York Knicks. I have adjusted the wordmark slightly(I feel it gets to tight by moving it too far up) and numerals on every edition. I have also added a stripe to the waist to complete the over all trim-impression. Hope this looks better :) (Now changed to Kevin Knox 20).

Better. Could you put Kevin Knox’s Or Dennis Smith Jr’s number on the back? The Porzingis one brings painful memories to mind

Those white numbers on the Vice City jerseys are perfect. I can’t wait to see what you have in store for my Sixers
