Is this a phase Nike is going through? First the Cleveland “Rock & Roll” jersey and now this? It’s awful.

It’s worse than Cleveland.

At this point, I’m expecting the Blazers’ jersey to be a black version of the ‘77 jerseys, with the vertical wordmark in ‘92 all caps font, over a red and white vertical sash, complete with the number font from the ‘92 set. Therefore, the jersey would contain elements from each of their three Finals appearances:

 

1976/77 - vertical wordmark
1989/90 - black uniform w/ red and white sash (rotated)

1991/92 - first season of new proprietary font

Nike: What would you like on your Anniversary jersey? Just a simple mashup...

 

Mavericks: Yes

It doesn't help that their City uniform, for as much as I kind of enjoyed it, looks almost exactly like a stock car/NASCAR scheme.

Which is funny, because Love's has been a sponsor in NASCAR for a long time but their cars don't look anything like that jersey.

What a nightmare and, simultaneously, a perfect metaphor for the current state of NBA aesthetics. Not only will we make your team schizophrenic, we'll now combine all of its personalities onto one uniform! Good lord.

That Cavs jersey kind of surprises me with how plain and uninspired it is considering the Cavs gave us some GREAT mashups over the years ...

So that IS a wordmark mashup after all.  What an insane looking mess.
 

Congrats Miami, you’ve managed to make the jersey version of this:

I forgot how great the shade of blue looked on those Cavfanatic uniforms on the left. It goes great with the yellow. Is it the same pastel royal blue as the Broncos' old helmets?

Didnt we already do “Time Warp Mash-Up” with the Cavs ten years ago? 😊

nevermind I thought there might be a change for the Clippers, but jerseys on sale could've been due to past sponsor change. 

Sadly, that's correct.

Well, at least those are rather tastefully done and spread out two eras at a time. Miami’s is ridiculously too much.

 

To the OP’s point, I agree that Miami’s set on its own is a sort of funny, accidental microcosm of the larger branding problem most NBA teams have in general now; you don’t really have a brand when you’re juggling multiple identities at the same time, no matter how much cash it’s raking in. The Heat just so happened to illustrate that problem on one singular uniform instead of 3-4.

I'd like to see a Miami fan show up to one of the games with a sign that says "Nike, please stop" using letters from Miami's various uniforms -- like a ransom note.

I feel like there won’t be too many rebrands next season with the focus being on the 75th anniversary weird city edition. Expecting (and dreading) at least 15 games in those for each team.
