2012-13 NBA Logo & Uniform changes

Recommended Posts

This is cool. This marks the first time that "throwback" refers to the uniforms I remember watching/wearing as a child. Its only a matter of time before I hear Nirvana and Pearl Jam on a classic rock station. These are the only two unis that this set is missing: 2003136146.jpgp1granthill.jpg

And I'd personally love to see these, but I understand that they don't evoke a ton of excitement in the rest of the country, and its not an era the Blazers front office really wants to revisit . . . .

Those Sonics unis were awesome - wish they'd bring them back for this year. The Blazers did go to the NBA Finals in the 90s set.

That Pacers set is NOT insanely classic. It ain't even halfway classic.

FloJo...THAT was insanely classic. Why didn't they reincarnate those for this promotion??? :cursing:

You're just wrong, Buc. :P These are just plain beautiful:

The FloJos were decent, but highly overrated.

They were, at least, better than this eyesore:

Say all you want about the Pacers' 80s unis, but at least it has some kind of team name on it. :) Who's the #12 guy standing next to Dale Ellis/behind Michael Adams?

Wow, the "9" in that Magic number font is bad. It looks like a drunk person tried to write a zero. It looks like nobody wore a 9 (or any digit higher than 5) until Tim Kempton in 1997, so I guess there's a reason that I didn't remember it, but... wow.

The #12 isn't a Piston uniform is it? Well it reminds me of the bubblegum cards that couldn't use the logos in the picture or some kind of ad.

Any news on the possibility of a Clippers blue Alt this year I think it would be a good time considering the add-on of cp3

It's not a Pistons uni that was around when the Heat was a young franchise. Not sure what it is.

seems likely, as the 2012-13 catalog for uniforms has a "TBD" in the place of a Clippers alternate. that, combined with that Chinese fake last season, makes me think this year they'll get released.

We do have a Clippers beat reporter here. I'm sure they second they unveil something, he will let us know.

Thank God we also have the chief of the Thread Police here to tell us what we can and can't talk about! And not only that, he has all the updates that nobody was dying to know about Akron Zips athletics!

It's not a Pistons uni that was around when the Heat was a young franchise. Not sure what it is.

It was probably a placeholder that was used because the Heat hadn't unveiled their identity, like OKC used for awhile after moving from Seattle.

Except the Heat jersey is right there. My guess was NBA 3-point champ that was unemployed but allowed to compete, like Craig Hodges later. He wore a similarly, but not as, generic jersey. But... the link says he is the only non-NBA player to ever compete in the 3-point contest. So there you go.
