1 then 4 forsure
Thanks for all the suggestions with colors. The blue and light blue combo had the most votes, but when I sat down to finish this, I just wasnt feeling that color combo. This team will probably be in the same division as the Birmingham Bees who already have a blue and lighter blue combo (with yellow) so I wanted to differentiate them. I didn add silver just because it cluttered up this simple design when I eperimented with it. I also considered a purple type color, since dgnmrwrw, being a Raleighite, mentioned it and I ended up with this which is now gray and very different than the colors before. So I guess in a way all your voting was for naught and I waisted your time but I hope this goes over well. I may make an alternative jersey. Not sure yet.
MBurmy, this does mean the Greensboro Coliseum will remain empty, unless I somehow lose my mind and make like 50 teams (very very unlikely) and put mulitple teams in some states.
The player is the great Pistol Pete Maravich who played high school ball in Raleigh.
Looks very nice. I like the dark gray.
I still can't help but feel that you went overkill using an inner stroke on the text. Oh well. No one else felt the same, so don't mind me.
I like everything except the logo on the court just looks a bit off to me, but it might just be me
Because there has not been much talk of divisions lately I thought I would put some thoughts out there.
Empire State Monarchs
Long Island Claws
Pacific... Maybe... The Palm Division...?
California Condors (SD)
Las Vegas Aces
Southwest... maybe... the old west division...?
So from my studies I have found that you desperately need teams in the Northwest, Southwest, and Pacific
He can take Sacramento, as the Kings are moving to Anaheim next season.
That color combination looks great, and the uniforms are solid as well. Another awesome job!
The color scheme looks a little too dark to me.
I thought I'd throw out my Division alignments too, they're far from perfect but I like them. If you ever get serious about wanting to do divisions let me know and maybe I can do some custom mapping for you (I'm a cartographer in my real life).
Incredible logo, incredible colors, and incredible jerseys. Everything about this is perfect. Very nice job.
Great look. Too bad the NBA didn't name the Charlotte Bobcats the Carolina Aviators....Raleigh Flight would be a nice NBDL tie in.
Raleigh's uniforms are okay, if a little dull stylistically. I do not think that the blue inline on the white text is working very well, certainly not as well as the blue inline on the dark gray text (which looks quite good). I think the problem is the relative color intensities, both on the numbers and in the color scheme in general. The blue is moderately intense compared to the dark gray, but the white is VERY intense compared to the blue, and it's creating a lot of vibration.
If the color scheme had a third, brighter and more saturated color (such as a silver, or maybe a bright blue or purple), then you could use that brighter color for the numbers/type on the dark gray jersey with white as the inline color. That would create a more pleasing look visually and it would match the style of the white jersey because the brighter color would be on the inline.

I see what you're saying about the lines inside the numbers/letters. I will make some changes to the jerseys.
eliasrapaport, at first when I placed the logo at centercourt I thought it wasnt doing much for me there, but theres not much else I can do since the jet alone wouldnt work there either. It's good enough I guess.
Now onto the divisions and geography up to this point. Now that Sacramento is losing an NBA team, it's a new option for a market in my league, but im doing somewhat nearby San Jose, so maybe not. The Kings moving is kind of messing with my league here since they are going to Anaheim, I have a team in Anaheim, and they are using the name Royals, I used that name. I wanted to avoid any NBA names, but ah well. Maybe I will change Cincinnati to the Kings.
(SOUTHEAST-need a new name)
(CENTRAL-need a new name)
(SOUTHWEST - need name)
(Omaha and Salt Lake are possibilities)
GOLD DIVISION (after California)
(San Jose yet to completed)
So I know that's only 5 divisions, but at this point that's how I envision them and of course some teams will go to another division if I get up to 6. GeoTheo, your 4 division obviously make more sense for now but Im still making more teams so we'll see what happens. Ive also seen what you did for your league with GoogleMaps/Earth which is pretty cool, so I'll let you know once Im done if I'd want to do the same. Thanks for the offer.
I made some updates to the jerseys and added a new secondary logo to the court. I think this is better. The difference in color between the inner stroke and the numbers/letters on the away jerseys is less extreme with these updates.
I'm not crazy for that F logo. Otherwise, nice job.
I'd say the uniforms are very much improved. But now I'm wondering why you're using a "flat" version of the wordmark on the unis. The "warped" version from the logo is far superior, I think. Much more dynamic. It would be nice if it were on the jerseys.
please make a secondary logo for Albuquerque Fire and Manhattan Mobsters..your concepts are great..those are better than most NBA logos today..Empire State Monarchs are like counterpart of the Lakers.
That would mean the Monarchs are the best team in this alternate dimension...the winningest team, after the [insert Celtics counterpart here].
the celtics logo and the manhattan mobsters logo looks the same....Empire State vs Manhattan rivalry would be great..i would like to call it Liberty City Rivals
I'm considering dropping it from the court and as a secondary logo all together if others feel the same.
Thanks. I used the flat version just because I havent seen too many jerseys with concave arches on the top and bottom of the lettering (not that I have to follow all conventional jerseys but just a thought) and I didnt want to overdo that technique since I used it on the Marauders jerseys. I may consider the other wordmark when I get back to this but Im relatively content with these.
sephyr23, I intentionally made the Mobsters like the Celtics so if you see it too, then I succeeded, but I'm not sure if I will make any secondary logos for the Fire (although I consider the one without the wordmark a partial logo) or Mobsters. Not every team in real life necessarily makes use of secondaries, most do, so if my league has 2 such teams, Im ok with that.
thanks for the comments, everyone.
