Speaking of the Hawks and Olympics, I have a feeling that they could go with a 1996 Olympic themed city uniform next year to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the games. Maybe? Maybe not? Just an idea. 

 

The return of Izzy?

New jersey sponsor for the Pistons beginning next season:

Actually looks somewhat less obtrusive than the Flagstar patch on the Association jerseys:

 

The United Wholesale Mortgage logo will appear on Detroit Pistons jerseys beginning with the 2021-2022 NBA season.

If they didn't spell out their name, I would have thought that the University of Wisconsin - Madison was trying to get students from Michigan.

 

(Correction: Turns out UWM is actually UW - Milwaukee.)

The Clippers and Nets city jerseys are both equally the worst uniforms I have ever set my eyes on.

The Clippers at least showed a bit of restraint with their design. The Nets went a little too wild, even with the full full inspiration taken into account. The wordmark makes me want to ram my head into a brick wall every time I see it.

Sixers-Hawks is an excellent example of how simple, yet unique uniforms can look gorgeous, as well as giving us 3 distinctly different uniform games with no loss of "Who am I watching?"

 

2 of the best dressed teams in the league.

Hawks vs Sixers is one of my favorite match ups in NBA 2K21. Both teams use drop shadow numbers but at different angles. Such a great design element. The Hawks should have used a drop shadow on their wordmark too

I 'm guessing Sixers wear the earned or white jerseys tonight vs the Hawks MLK uniforms.

Schedule for the series is:

 

(PHI) White @ (ATL) MLK

(ATL) Red @ (PHI) Blue (Game 2)

(PHI) White @ (ATL) Red (Game 3)

(PHI) Red @ (ATL) Black (Game 1)

That can't be right, can it?

This reminds me of something I noticed in 2K21; When you see two teams that use red in a match-up and you notice the variations of red used in the NBA. From afar a lot of the reds look the same, but when compared they're slightly different. In the game the Pistons red looks almost rose compared to the Hawks.

They’re probably using the actual team colors across the board in the game, but in reality, all the reds likely get consolidated down to one or two so more garments can be made using the same fabric lots.

this matchup is why i can't completely get on the "color vs color is always an abomination that should never happen" train. these games all looked great. in fact, you could do color vs color with most teams in the league and there'd be at least 2 different combos that look fantastic and dont have fans wondering who is who. there just doesnt seem to be any focus / intention at all with who is wearing what. the nets debuted a black earned jersey that perfectly fits their aesthetic and it feels like they've worn it twice. the clippers are wearing two different drab black uniforms nonstop. utah never wears anything other than red rocks at home even though they'll probably phase it out in a year or two. it's just all so muddled and every team looks like every other team.

The nets have 3 separate black uniforms, and the iconic Celtics have 2 greens and 2 whites. Now at least those are in team colors but that’s the problem, forcing teams to have 4-5 uniforms either gives us redundant alternates or uniforms nowhere close to the teams identity.
