the new okc jerseys look great and are really fresh aswell as their new slightly improved court. if i were to start a franchise i'd easily choose their new set over the old ones

 

but oddly enough, i prefer how their uniforms were before, just cause of nostalgia. when i think of the Thunder i instantly think of that sort of faded blue uniform with the stripe running down the side and that old court which there's been countless memories on (i know the court thing is a stretch)

 

I think OKC is in desperate need of a rebrand. The time is right too with the end of the KD/Westbrook era.

Safe to say tonight's Lakers-Celtics game was the worst looking in the history of their rivalry? 😬

 

 

Unpopular Opinion: I do not mind those Celtics uniforms. They could be much worse than they are letting on.

Agreed. There isn't any blatantly offensive about this set to me at all. Boring? Yeah, but considering what it's trying to emulate, there's not much more to add to it. Overall, it's a fine alternate and a decent uniform, not something you can say about most City looks.

It’s not about the players, it’s about the fans wanting to see teams wearing their best looks in iconic matchups and rivalries.

 

But, do they? I mean, all of us on these boards do. But, the vast majority of fans are somewhat indifferent.

 

These marquee games are primetime to put $$$$$ over aesthetics.

Game was in TD Garden, so Celtics in white and Lakers in purple aren't what fans always want to see when game is in Boston?

The way the uniforms are spread throughout the season is baffling. Nets wore their throwback SIX times in January but won't be wearing them in all of February. Why not 3x a month??

You don’t think they’d sell more product if they spread it out keeping the uniforms in the public’s self conscious for longer?

Long ago. I'd say from the beginning, but if they did a proper job back then, there wouldn't be such a question to begin with.

Jerseys are an impulse buy and HWCs are very often limited in supply and sell out early. Try finding a Durant HWC anywhere...you can't, the major stores are sold out (custom is available but usually more expensive). .

Yeah they’re nice. The real problem is the weird Laker purples.

so basically every single Lakers vs Celtics game should be the same exact formula? No alternates at all?

 

Lakers in straight yellow at home and Celtics in straight green in LA

Celtics in straight white at home and Lakers in straight purple (no black side) in Boston?

 

I went through all the different match up you guys posted and they were diverted from the same ole boring formula and mixed things up a little, but yet you people complian.

 

Guys please get over it, we have 5 or 6 jerseys a year its 2021 and multiple courts. 

 

If you want to see the same traditional uniform match up go re-watch Lakers vs Celtics from the 1980s. 

 

Im sick of you people lol

Yep, that's totally fine. We'll accept throwbacks.

Most of the time – of course. And the whole league, not only the Lakers or Celtics.

Uniforms are there to represent the team and its brand to be easily distinguished. Not to lead to confusion. Also, fashion jerseys are fashion jerseys, and should remain such.

As a general note, with the home-away designation totally gone and games played also color on color, the only way to know now which the home team is is the court. And that's not the very first thing you pay attention to. Distinguishing should be automatic by seeing the players, like it used to be, when you turned on a game and saw the home team playing in white (light).

It's gone beyond not knowing the home team to now knowing the teams period. I'm as plugged into the NBA as anyone, and I really shouldn't have an issue turning on a game and knowing who the teams are. That has happened multiple times this season; way more than any year previous.

I have no problems with alternates, even more than one, but I think Lakers-Celtics should stick to their default looks and keep the historic throughline back to Bird/Magic and even the latter years of Russell/West. There are 400something possible matchups of NBA teams and maybe like 10 that are historic enough to shy away from alternates as a rule, it’s not exactly a big stubborn ask. Alternates are great for random February games against Minnesota, sure.

Didn't the Celtics wear those gray alts against the Lakers one time? That would automatically be worse IMO.

I don’t think so.

The ONLY reason why people cant tell who's playing is because the scorebugs only show the team's main color.  If the Bulls are in black and gold, the scorebug should be black with the gold logo.  If the Lakers are in their city edition, the scorebug should be white with a blue logo.

 

Have the scorebugs match the uniforms and everything is fine.
