New Dallas Mavericks Alternate on September 21st

"Our new alternate color" reeks of Black. All signs point to another Green jersey or a lighter Blue one, but "new alternate color" suggests something different then we have seen before.

Edit: Pink??? Breast cancer awareness?

If they would just switch to green full-time, they'd look great. Their (old) alts are their only jerseys I like. This doesn't sound good.

agreed... green with royal blue for home/road, and royal blue with green for an alt...

The Mavericks don't really have a definitive color scheme. They were the first of the New 2Blue Wave, but they've tried to backpedal into the old royal/green stuff that was so scarred by incompetence that they needed the double-blue in the first place. I feel like the Mavs need to be progressive in their design. They're a fairly young organization in a non-traditional NBA market, owned by Mark Cuban. You can't just retreat to the warm embrace of the crap Jamal Mashburn lost in.

but you can apparently bring back jason kidd to wear whatever the color scheme is this year. :\

the mavs are my NBA team, but only because i'd feel guilty cheering for anyone else. they need an overhaul in more ways than one.

Throw me into the camp that wants to see some more green in the new jersey. For the most part, I like their current green alts (except for the "Mavs" wordmark), but I think some green trim on another color wouldn't be bad.

I was going to say something about the solid years in the '80s, but I guess that peak was only about 2 years, with just one run to the conference finals. Practically the same as the solid years the Grizzlies had with Gasol and Hubie Brown, before one injury plagued off year convinced them he was worth trading to the Lakers for nothing...

Ironically the '89 Mavericks traded away their best player away as well - but who knew that Adrian Dantley would be so heartbroken and decline so fast.

The current Mavericks logo is kind of a big mess of odd shapes, odd lettering, and odd symbolism: it uses a horse, even though a maverick is a bull (though this would be problematic for self-evident reasons). A wild horse is a mustang, not a maverick. Despite the attempt at something Western, the wordmarks and numbers fall into some vague technocrap style.

I don't really like it, but then I look back at a basketball wearing a cowboy hat, which to me is in the Bucco Bruce tier of bad logos that also happen to signify moribund teams. Also, how soon we forget how terrible those wordmarks were: that big swashy lettering was dated by the end of the '70s, to say nothing of 1980.

I wish I had a solution to this. I don't suppose they can go full-bore Texan when there are two other teams in the state, and red/white/blue would just chap everyone's ass (including my own, after advocating progressive "maverick" design).
