What uniforms in current use do you think will be thrown back to in 25-30 years?


Recommended Posts

It's a tough thing to predict. You basically need to think of a set that is beloved enough that the team would bring it back, but not too beloved that it'll still be in use for the next few decades. These are a couple I can think of, mainly because of their association with championships.

Hopefully not this exact one, but I'd love to see the Vice Heat make a comeback in future years, and hopefully as a replacement for the red/yellow/black set:

Yeah I think at this point with as many people clamoring for the Vice colors as there are, the Heat may as well make the perma-switch to the Vice colorway--though, as noted above, not in ^ that guise. 

 

(That would also help out the Skyforce up here in town, too...red and black has never really suited them, plus they looked better in bright teal.)

These aren’t current, but I think it could be seen in the same light as the late 90s Cavs or Rockets.

I'm sure that this is a hot take, but I really liked this set. Swap out lime for yellow, make the red the primary away uniform, flip the number colors, and limit the use of the pattern to only around the collar and this is one of the better looks in the NBA. It's a really nice, modern template that doesn't feel too over-the-top or gimmicky, lime color notwithstanding. Perfect for a energetic city like Atlanta for an up-and-coming young team like the Hawks. Are there better looks in the Hawks history? Sure, but this look is by no means the worst and was a few small tweaks away from being one of the better looks in the team's storied history.

I’ll go one step further and say I liked the volt for the Hawks. It feels analogous to the Seahawks use of lime green. It’s pretty subtle and restrained, thankfully they never came out with a volt jersey.

If they used the regular fonts from that era that'd be a solid alternate look. The black on volt works as an extension of that set without going too crazy, plus it's a nod to a beloved throwback set.  As a regular uniform, I'd hate it. As an alternate, it's fine.
