I definitely see some insipration from the Pacers ABA-era throwbacks, but luckily it ends at inspiration instead of the duplication that stifles true innovation.

Now that I've gotten the rhyming out of my system, I really like what the Pacers have done here. A subtle nod to the past in the form of a distinctive, modern-looking style.

Here's an interesting tidbit from the Pacers' website:

The fabric of the uniform will consist of a different fabric on the front and back. The front and inserts of the jersey are made with Play Dry metallic stretch air. The back of the jersey is a Play Dry flatback mesh, which is an open hole mesh allowing for slightly more breathability in a key area of perspiration. This marks the first time a NBA team will wear a jersey consisting of different fabric on the front and back. This concept was tested in the 2005 NBA All-Star Game.

Y'know, I just don't like that. It's too generic. And the addition of the grey is just silly.

Then again, I loved the pinstriped set. Loved.

According to the release on the Pacers' website, they couldn't do the pinstripes with the new fabrics. I think it's a good change. The Pacers are a team that markets its tradition and plays in a retro fieldhouse, so I think low-key was the way to go.

Personal feelings towards the Pacers aside (sorry, as a Pistons fan, it's kind of a "to-the-pain" (yes, that'd be a gratuitious Princess Bride reference thrown in there) thing with Indy :lol: ), I really like this new set...

Gives a nod to their glory days in the ABA and moves forward rather nicely...

Heck, even a gold version of these wouldn't look too bad at all...anything beats that awful gold with blue pinstripes alt they had :puke:
