NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

Recommended Posts

In the rookie group picture the two 76ers rookies are in the new warm up gear instead of showing off the new uniforms. It looks as if some teams made their uniforms sharper and nicer or it could just be my prespective...

The Wizards mainly changed because they had a golden alt. So they changed the logos, and now jerseys.

Sixers, they look cool and sharp, but very simple.

Pretty much just black. However, it is hard to see from pictures, but guides reveal that a few shades of black are used. I assume it's different material.

I try to keep myself pretty much up-to-date on the NBA, especially in the uni's but please tell me what did the Wizards change about their uniforms? Is it the brown looking color that seems more gold like to me?

I just googled their old jersey and the only thing that I can come up with is that they made their brownish gold actually look more like a metallic gold. I guess it's so that it can match with those horrible alternate jerseys that they have!

That's exactly what the Wizards did. They wanted to have the colors match so they switched the copper color to more of a gold.

I like the Sixers uniforms better, but I still wish that they would have made the red their primary. It looks so much better.

Where on earth are you pulling that one out of? Completely not true.

You have the guides, just check. I used the eyedropper and put them side by side, even checked the values.

...

very slight differences.

Yeah, I have them in vector. There are actually four different swatches for Black in there (not unusual at all for NBA Style Guide graphics), but there are also four different ones for their Red, two for the Silver, three for their Blue, and four for the Gold.

This kind of stuff happens all the time - they just use templates for creating new files, and often times there are old swatches from other files in there that get used out of convenience.

Never take these things so literally. These "print" graphics just get translated to Production Colors, and then again to Textiles, Thread and Twill for manufacturing. However, if they were going to - for some ridiculous reason - use three different Blacks, it would start in the color guides indicated on the sheet. Which it isn't.

Hey, I understand you. I know you're right, and I fully agree. The NBA does some weird stuff, I have found a lot of older swatches. So yah, It's just that when I used the eyedropper, it should up differently. I do believe that it is just ONE black.

Thanks for clearing that up :D

On screen they look very similar. They are actually quite different. I believe it went from 876 to 874

Exactly the kind of information that the NBA doesn't want made public. Nice.

Here's a better look at the colors - using the actual Pantone Textile color swatches:
