Warriors retro jersey


DEAD!

Recommended Posts

These are surely among the best throwbacks in the NBA. The Warriors went into great detail with the whole set. I saw pics from their game against the Knicks. They had entire warm-up sets and also wore the high yellow and blue striped socks during the game.

those aren't RETRO, those are mothballed relics. Yuck!

Are you people nuts? That jersey is great...

what i said i didnt hate them... i like them... i was just making the point that often these retro/alternate looks get trashed quickly

Warriors can't bring these back because they are full of SF references (cable cars, "The City"), and the team plays in Oakland now. SF fans might like it, but Oakland fans simply will not stand for that. A friend of mine from Oakland once said a few years ago that they were planning on changing the team's name to the Oakland Warriors. From an initials standpoint, it makes sense.

I wish they would bring back the old blue and yellow CA map logo, which was pretty tight.

How does having the initials OW make sense?? Personally I love these jerseys. No-one in there right minds would design these now, which I reckon is one of the best things about these retro nights!

Heinous, considering they play in that dump town Oakland now, which can never be referred to as "The City"...  Oh, and the Warriors will never change their name to the "Oakland Warriors".  That was wishful thinking on the part of a few Oakland politicos when the new downtown practice facility was completed.  The vast majority of the team's fanbase hails from outside Oakland proper, a name change would not go over, especially with Golden State having achieved a certain cachet of uniqueness.

Personally, I prefer the Sleepy Floyd-era Warriors uniforms of the mid-80s.
