Not gonna lie, simple isn't the first word I would use to describe these..

They are definably non-traditional, though I don't think that is a bad thing at all. Personally, I think it would look a bit better if the logo was brought down to below the numbers, but that's just me. Otherwise, I think that this is a very creative jersey that would sell well.

I fully and wholeheartedly disagree. You need to lose a row or two of the diamonds (after all, it's gonna be tucked in), and arch/stylize/bolden the city font. It's too plain, and the numbers dominate it. Using lowercase on the nameplate is different, but I'm not sure anyone's ready for it.

I don't think its that bad of a design, but it wouldn't work on a jersey. For one, NBA players tuck in their jerseys so the that pattern would all be lost. The stripes down the side are kinda cool though.

I'm pretty sure the stripes down the side are always there, you just get to change the colors of them. Correct me if I'm wrong (I'm not).

That's definitely an improvement. The Argyle pattern is exclusively associated with UNC so I don't think it would work for any NBA team and especially not an NBA team in Carolina. But having said that, you've still got some work to do. First, the back logo is too big. And I agree with Milo, the upper-lower case names just don't cut it. The numbers look a lot like the Cubs style and don't go with the wordmark. I think the Bobcats original number font works very well and should be continued. Have you worked on the shorts? I'd like to see what you have in mind. Keep it simple and tasteful. I like the fact you've stayed with Orange & Blue. They're distinctive colors when done right. The Knicks use too much Black. Ruins the look. Good luck.

These last two look way better. The first ones I didn't like at all. Way too much going on. Simpler is always nicer, in my opinion.

Make the front and back numbers the same color, and maybe give an outline or drop shadow on them.

I think that given Michael Jordan is part owner of the team and how close Charlotte is to Chapel Hill, the argyle pattern makes sense and looks nice. I'm no fan of incorporating college parts into professional identities, but given how little the Bobcats have going for them, every little bit would help.

I love the font, I love how clean everything looks, and I loved the original Bullets-esque argyle pattern. I think the upper/lower case name on the back looks great too.

I have a feeling that, given how non-traditional the NBA went with the New Orleans all-star jerseys, there may be a movement to radically modernize new jersey looks. I could be wrong, but it seems like if any league could get away with crazy textures and patterns, it's the NBA. More like this, in my opinion, would be nice.

Boy am I glad I scrolled down to see the most recent version, since you've greatly improved these.

With that said, I'm not a big fan of the sleeveless look, so I'd like to see some bordering there, but that's a completely personal preference. I could definitely see an NBA team wearing these.

I'd leave a blue set out of it completely...first, because the NBA doesn't need another blue jersey. Secondly, because the color distribution, along with the general shape and flow of the white logo, just make it look like a Denver Broncos crossover.
