Pyromania1983's Nike NBA Concepts (UPDATE: 12/1/2019 Boston Celtics)

Recommended Posts

I joined just a few months ago after years of lurking here, so I thought I might as well get started on sharing my own concepts with the community. I am trying to make a Nike set for NBA teams (consisting of association, icon, statement, and either one or the other of a city or a classic). I started with my favorite, also slightly updated their primary and alternate logo.

Philadelphia 76ers - White (Association); Red (Icon); Blue (Statement); White (Classic - 2001 Home Uniform)

Okay, my next concept is for the Boston Celtics. I hope that I have not become too revolutionary and changed their identity too much. Firstly, and most apparently, I added orange to their color scheme, paying more homage to the Irish heritage of the Boston area and of the Celtics team identity. And secondly, I have changed the green to a slightly darker shade to contrast better with the orange and the white. For the Celtics city jersey, I changed the gold to a darker shade than the one they used last season on their city and earned uniforms because those ones seemed to match too closely with that of the Lakers (or what the Lakers should look like). This city uni celebrates the many championships that have been accomplished by Boston sports teams (Celtics in particular) by making gold the primary (and well-known championship) color of the uniform. Sure I played it a bit safe. But why fix something that isn't broken?

Yeah... I don't know. A lot of the Celtics' heritage comes from those uniforms. The main issue is that orange dominates, especially in the home set, more than it is an accent. I'd be interested to see a similar design with orange used more sparingly. I wouldn't mind seeing something similar being used as a City Edition jersey design

I thought the same when I saw the home, if you're gonna add a color to a classic team like the Celtics it should just be an accent. I'm not opposed to the color scheme, it reminds me of my Hurricanes, but it is hard to see the Celtics in something other than just plain green and white.
