Lately everything associated with warriors have had a lot of yellow and not a lot of "Golden Gate Orange"

Look at the crowd

I personally am 100% for this switch because I've always preferred the yellow to the GS orange.

Personally I think the NBA has things mixed up. Before, I thought it was cool how home was white, now i see how stupid that is. I think that they should wear the team color at home, that way when fans wear their gear you can notice it. Especially in the incident with Toronto New jerseys. Just my 2 cents...

As for the warriors, meh, Yellow is their color too

how can the warriors be all-yellow and still not be confused with another team from the golden state?

HOME

jerseys: white

shorts: yellow

AWAY

jerseys: yellow

shorts: blue

ALTERNATE

jerseys: blue

shorts: blue

I actually like the Wizards alt, but those home and away combos would look terrible. They could either have all yellow home or all white home. For the away they would just be all blue. I don't see the need for using mismatched colors. Even if the Lakers are yellow, if they both wore yellow at home, they would never conflict.

The orange was a crap tack-on from the 1997 redesign.

Interesting anecdote on that, the NBA lobbied hard for Chris Cohan to use a submitted logo design of a "he-man like character holding up the golden gate bridge". Cohan vetoed that and went with the slightly-less stupid power ranger that's still in use. Never mind the fact that the Golden Gate Bridge has nothing to do with Oakland anyway... NBA genius at work...

When the logo was announced, I remember there was a small drawing of that he-man/bridge logo, but I never saw it again.

If they're going to use a generic name like "Golden State," they ought not be limited to Oakland iconography.

I would love to see it. Can't be any worse than the garbage they have now.

Frankly, the Golden State moniker is one of the brilliant things about that franchise.

And, the logo would have been better with the steel-gray slate Bay Bridge. At least that's viewable from the Oakland Coliseum.

I tend to agree about the name - although I usually despise state names as a rule, there's something about this one that works. Works much better than "Warriors" anyway, which is damning with faint praise.

I'll have to take your word for the logo, not having seen it.

I wish I could find it, but trust me, it's as cheesy as it sounds. Granted, this article i'm remembering is already 10 years old. (jeez, time flies).

It funny, because I can't disagree with you more. I think for a team that up until this postseason hasn't made many strides in marketing themselves or establishing a national presence in over a decade, having a name like Golden State is actually very detrimental in my opinion. Many people in America can't even find the US on a World Map let alone tell you where/what the 'Golden State' is. I've always prefered San Francisco, Oakland, or even California for that reason. It is an original name, but not one that I think ultimately benefits the image of the team on a national stage.

Just out of curiosity, where did you have to reach to pull that one from?

As a SF resident, I don't blame the team for not wanting to be saddled with the "Oakland" name. It's just not a well-regarded town, for whatever reason (which I shall not get into on this here forum).

And San Francisco? SF has nothing to do with the team, nor is SF a particular hotbed of basketball support (or pro sports in general - Giants notwithstanding).

And California? I don't think you could get more generic than "California". It may have worked with the Angels, but it just doesn't link to "Warriors" well.

I'd just like to add that the shirts are gold/yellow because the guy who started making these "We Believe" shirts before the Warriors went ahead and cranked out their official shirts, printed the design on yellow shirts. Surprisingly, despite "Go Warriors" appearing on the shirts, the team actually offered to reimburse his $10,000 rather than sue him for image rights infringement. Way to go Warriors!

On a side note, since you're a San Francisco resident leedsunited, do you plan on attending any Victory matches at Kezar? We could always use another Leeds supporter in the bunch.
