The team isn't necessarily wrong, but the style is quite wrong.

 

Yes, I think the Suns did a throwback during the Barkley era to the original uniforms which had been used all the way up to just before Barkley joined Phoenix.

 

I think they may have worn those in preseason that year and busted out the new ones for the regular season...but I may be making that up

I don't think you're making it up - I also remember the Suns wearing the old unforms in pre-season that year and not using the new ones until the regular season started. Also wasn't that their first season in America West (or whatever it's called now) arena?

i love both of the hatcher brothers, so it was bittersweet to lose kevin. but there's no question zubov was HUGE for this team, and one of my all-time favorites.

I'm pretty sure that's the case. The Suns even wore these in an episode of "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper".

That's exactly what happened. I used to love those old Suns uniforms (but now see how dated they look - they could be updated and look amazing though) and was confused when I watch them play in the pre season despite the new jersey "leaked" in an Eastbay (or similar) catalog.

I, too, am not gonna bother checking back to see if this was posted or not, so sorry if it was.

Danny Ainge, on the... Toronto Blue Jays? :blink:

(Ok, most may know he did play baseball as well for a little while, but for those who didn't know... he did.)

Since we brought up Charles Barkley, here's one that I'm sure was posted but I'll post again.

CB in the wrong uniform (I associate him with the late '80s blue block letter set) and wrong number (he selfishly took Billy Cunningham's #32 to "honor" Magic Johnson who got HIV because he was dumb.)

When these were unveiled he said that it looked like his little daughter got her hands on a box of crayons and went nuts and that he hated them.

Speaking of Barkley (and Drexler)

You know what's funny, Barkley has never looked that strange to me in a Rockets uniform. I was much too young to really pay any attention to basketball when he was in Phoenix, so Houston was the first team I really associated him with.

Now, retrospectually? Phoenix is his "right" uniform, but I still think of Houston right with Phoenix when thinking of Barkley.

Speaking of Barkley in the wrong uniform - why does the 76ers' banner for Barkley's retired #34 have the Iverson-era "76ers" script? Barkley never came close to playing in those uniforms.
