Charlotte Hornets?

Recommended Posts

They now have the best identity in the league. Great logos, colors, jerseys (not perfect but still great) and now the court.

That charging hornet is easily top 3 logo in league, if not 1

cool parquet design but I bet this has the shelf life of Toronto's unique zig/zag floor.

It was a different era then...teams are more interested in making their floors unique now than they were in the early 1990s. Look at Brooklyn's herringbone design for proof of this.

He looks like a dork but I am still loving the colors!

The Raptors' design debuted in 1995-6, the same year the Rockets had the lift-off court, and the Hawks and Hornets had the painted 3-point areas. Plenty of teams wanted unique courts in the 1990s.

Charlotte won the draft last night.

Vonleh is still only 18 years old & has potential to be a star. He was projected to go top 5. He's 6'9 with a 7'4 wingspan. Great rebounder & shot blocker who can also shoot the 3 & handle the ball.

Hairston is NBA ready, built like a tank, & is a scoring machine. He can drain 3s but also drive & finish strong. He would've been a lotto pick if not for his off court stuff.

The whole idea of the Buzz City logo bothers me, but also from a design perspective it irks me that CITY doesn't extend to the same edges that BUZZ does and leaves that needless empty space.

The numbers... why are they so large...

I'm trying to like the new identity, but boy do those numbers ruin it.

My initial reaction was 'wow that's awesome'. Let's see how it shows on a TV broadcast though.

It's because of the "I" which is narrower than the other characters. Otherwise they would've had to make the characters in CITY wider or increase its tracking, which would have looked inconsistent with the BUZZ above.

They really aren't that big. The outline of the numbers is embossed in a slightly different shade of purple/teal. The colors are also much, much darker in person, especially the teal.

These uniforms look absolutely incredible in person.

The numbers don't look overly huge, but they look unfinished. They REALLY need an outline.

They dont have an out line. What you are seeing is the different materials Adidas uses for its numbers, and it causes them to look stupid too.
