Godawful! As a Space Jam fan since childhood, I was looking forward to this movie with an open mind, but this uni design definitely lowered my desire to see it a bit. 90s did 90s better. The new logo was bad too, for that matter, but this is even worse.

 

It's fine.  I hated it too at first and I've already gotten over it quicker than I've gotten over the NBA Logoman moving from the front to the back of the jersey.

 

 

Many of the people who loved Space Jam hate this, but it isn't for them, just like how many kids love Episode I: The Phantom Menace and its two sequels even though fans of the original trilogy cringe at Anakin and his "sand" quote.

I see where you're coming from, but they still took it to the extreme with the design where it just looks gross, even while going for a 90s aesthetic.

I would've also liked for this new Space Jam to be as much fan service as it is for the new audience (see: the new SW trilogy), since it was such a cult movie of the time for the 90s' kids that made us fall in love with basketball, and I'm not really aware of Looney Tunes being a thing among kids today.

Looks like the only logo change from the draft hats is the Raps changing their Global Logo:

An improvement, imo. If they're not going to embrace purple somehow, at least the red ball looks better than the current gray one.

Change that most of the people won't even notice, but yes it is an improvement.

Not surprised by this subtle change. They use the standalone red ball iteration everywhere, usually on a black background but sometimes on white like my avatar. Their current Twitter avatar is the red on black as well. It was always odd that gray was used for the main logo when it is used so sparingly on the jerseys. I bet it will be gone completely on the revised jerseys as well.

Typefaces on a uniform are typically pretty consistent right? I will never understand what happened to the Rockets...

 

2003-2010: Number typeface matches 'Rockets'

after 2010: Adidas introduces Revolution 30 uniforms, for some reason the Rockets switch their number typeface to same one the Indiana Pacers were using:

Fast forward to 2019... Nike... new uniforms... and the Rockets STILL don't change this font. The Pacers don't even use it anymore... WTF

This just comes across as so lazy, no attention to detail. For the love of god, please change the number to something blockier that matches 'ROCKETS' better. The '3' is such an eyesore.

That draft hat script is dumb and messy.  The TWolves is really smashed into the front panel.   I love the teal on grey mix though.

This is where I lament about how everything went down hill after 1993 with NBA Draft hats.

Those are pretty much the gold standard. I really liked Miami's black hat with red-orange writing...just looked cool to me.

I still have fond memories of the '95 and '96 draft hats too...

There's been a lot of garbage draft hats since then.

Is that a new alt logo for the Spurs?

Maybe? But probably not. A lot of these seem to be simplified versions of the logo (Detroit, Utah, Orlando all look simplified).

I guess you don’t like the retro draft hats either that these play off of.

You mean script hats? I LOVE them.  But the font was smaller, more spread out and readable.  This new font looks like a bunch of squiggles.
