My Take on the NBA's Uniform System: Team Matchups *Requests are open*

That Spurs font on the Statement is one of the best I've ever seen on an NBA concept. I know that was probably a custom script that you created but what would that look like for "San Antonio" on the Fiesta jersey as well? Also the addition of the spur on the shorts is a great idea and feels like such a no brainer for the team to implement. Great series overall!

There's going to be no mockups on these. To be perfectly honest, I haven't been feeling the best from a mental standpoint so yeah

 

All-Star Game:  I am aware that I picked two captains from the same division in the same conference. They were the freshest in my mind, plus it's not exactly a conference affair anymore. Being that it's the 75th anniversary of the NBA, I considered doing what the NHL did and go with replicas of their first All Star Game, but that didn't fit the vibes of the NBA. These work off of the redesigned uniforms I did for the Cavs but a lot simpler than that. The unique thing for all these uniforms, is that teams bring their own fonts and NOB fonts to the game. 3 stars under the arms for the 3 total All Star games Cleveland will have hosted. NW stripe on the shorts, meeting the team logo on one side and the NBA star logo on the other side. That black square on the jerseys is supposed to be the jersey tag and above the tag is the 3 years Cleveland hosted the ASG. 

 

Rising Stars: Ironically, the design for these uniforms was borrowed from an All-Star Game hosted by their division mates, Detroit in 1979. These, more or less, use that All-Star Game uniforms and inject the blue and orange uniforms to them. I wasn't sure if Rising Stars participants are All-Stars, so I removed most of the references to the All-Star game save for the 3 stars under the arms. 

 

That is all I got for you at the moment. I know @jaytavo305 asked about some seeing some matchups, so if I know what he would want to see, I can bring those to life and maybe open it up to other matchups as well.

It was just Haglos Script that spells out Spurs. I didn't want to mess with the Fiesta script, since it was the same script used on the warmups that inspired the uniforms.

Maybe just some rivalry matchups, Celtics lakers, Knicks nets, etc. I respect if you're not feeling the best, Im not very picky with seeing these head to head matchups, whatever looks good. 

I think I'll try this with what I think would make the best matchup or matchups and if there's one you or anyone else wanted to see, I'll make that happen too: 

 

Celtics/Lakers

Spoiler

Classic and Iconic. As it should be.

Both teams got a Heritage jersey out of this deal, so let's face those off too. 

 

 

 

Knicks/Nets:

Spoiler

I think you could get away with this one. IDK, I think this one looked better than either team in a white jersey.

NYC vs The Subway? 

 

Celtics/76ers:

Spoiler

I'm always more partial to the Sixers in blue, which puts the Celtics in their whites

Boston might have the most famous court in NBA history and the Sixers' reds are just as good as their blues IMO

 

Bulls/Pistons:

Spoiler

They might have fallen off since the days of Jordan vs the Bad Boys. Still a good uni matchup tho

Windy City vs the Motor City 

 

Lakers/Clippers:

Spoiler

Lot of good match up potential here for the Battle for LA

Nothing fancy, just a good Sunday matchup 

 

Cavs/Warriors

Spoiler

The rivalry here might have come to an end with LeBron taking his talents to LA, but we can still celebrate it here.

The Land vs The City

Is this still too soon for Warriors fans? 

 

If there's one I missed or there's a matchup anyone else would like to see, please let me know!
