Wanted to see what that new Knicks wordmark would look like on a jersey:

I don't like it. To me, it looks like a knockoff that's just not got it right.

Yeah, looks like a college jersey somehow.

Hopefully the jerseys won't be THAT plain. They could just use their current trim and eliminate the black.

I think the thing that throws off the look of the throwback Knicks jerseys for me is the lack of the side striping. Without it it just looks incomplete and overly plain for some reason.

EDIT: What LO said.

Yeah. Just add an orange side stripe with some white trim so that it's distinguished enough from the throwbacks, and more in the range of the current look.

Sorry, I must have missed something but what is that logo on the back of the new Knicks shirt? In the spot where the orange NYK used to be?

It's this logo:

but honestly I like the NYK "subway coin" logo better, even though MTA doesn't actually use them anymore.

Ditto, and the reason why is best represented on those shirts. You can't even make out what the new secondary says on the Kidd shirt [at least I can't on my computer], while the old subway token logo is simple and clean enough that you can tell what it is.

With that being said, I like the idea of the new token paying homage to one of the Knicks' older logos, but I think they could've tried something else, maybe a twist on their old apple logo?

Thanks for filling me in. I'm sad to see the subway token logo go because I feel that signals even more black-listing of the black in their color scheme.

Yup not liking the word mark tweak either. The old one looked pretty good as it was.

I know I'm in the minority and the Knicks have history an all, but I wish they would use a wordmark that matched the actual knicks logos better. Instead of the standard serif block font. I mean the main logo already has arched text, just make it less 3-dimensional.

If ya'll notice. The wordmark on last season warmup shirts is the same wordmark as the Jason Kidd tee. Also remember all of the Knicks on court apparel had the new logo on it except the uniform. I think its safe to say if there is a uniform change next season, this will be the new wordmark.

That new wordmark is an upgrade, IMO. Eager to see the new unis, if they are coming, that is.

Not that we already didn't know this last offseason when the other jerseys were leaked, but here's the new Sixers blue jersey that they will definitely debut this year.

I like that Sixers blue jersey much more than their red one. Wouldn't mind if it became the full-time road jersey.

You and me both cause I agree with you. They should use the New York font they have in the logo (at the top). It would be something fresh from the standard block font but as well have a tie in to the teams current logo and stuff. Would someone be able to actually mock that up?

Can't believe no ones mentioned the USA dream team jerseys. Atrocious shorts. Looks decent from the front.

What's interesting is if you look back at the photo shoots, they weren't two tone shorts. They had a stripe matching the jerseys:

Looks much better that way IMO. Brasil was sporting the same Nike template against the US the other night:

Yeah, those shorts look horrible. The white ones could even get confusing playing someone that's in blue. And this isn't the Dream Team.
