NBA Changes 2013-14 Season

Recommended Posts

Bring one of these sets back and I will be a happy man!

And also I am sorry, I thought that black timberwolves set was Badass! even with the trees!

The set on the right perfectly brought forward their original intent, I think.

I don't mind the trees in moderation, but all of them back to back, I don't know, makes me think of Crystal Lake.

Why they ever got rid of the set on the right and ditched the green is beyond me. That was a great look. The tree design on the shorts made that set unique without being gaudy.

I hate that they ditched the green.

My beef with the set on the right is that the green is pushed to the side. I think it would have been great if they'd used green, rather than black for outlining the numbers and wordmark.

What I'd really like is an update of the set on the left. The logo looks a bit dated now (as much as I liked it when it first came out), but the current alt (shown on the floor), with more green and less black, would be great.

In any case, I cannot believe they have gone to this scheme that completely eschews bright colors. It's boring and not distinctive in the least, which is not good for a small-market, bad weather team that nobody really cares about.

I don't think it's funny to mock tributes to deceased people.

He might have not known he was dead, i didnt know who it was

Yea, I didn't know who it was and neither had any intention to mock anybody, the guy just reminded me of Will Smith, that's all.

You make me realize how old I am since I assume that everybody knows the players from the 90's.

These are good as well, even though they are similar to the Rockets

Here's another that reminds me of the old school Kings.

Forgive me if this update has been posted:

Some interesting new submissions for the Raptors rebrand.

Looking at these submissions has made me form the (unpopular?) opinion that there's absolutely no way that Red/Black/Silver/White could ever be a good look for the Raptors, Canadian pride be damned. Every single entry using that color scheme reminded me of either the Bulls, the Trail Blazers, or the Rockets, and sometimes all three.

I agree either go back to purple red silver and black..or even add blue! But other than that..most unis either looked like Bulls,Rockets,Blazers, (red versions of Grizzled,Bobcats..etc)..

^ agreed. either re-embrace the purple-red or go with a Toronto-inspired blue-white.

it'd be pretty sweet if they could pull off an ONLY blue and white color scheme, ala the Nets and Celts simplistic route. they'd have to have some inspiring design to make that happen though, so might be a stretch.

Thought those 3 stripes were Raptor claws..but Adidas will push for those before it falls into the wrong hands..

This is the only one going somewhere:

With some refining and the type needs to be changed. The idea of the claw/tear mark behind the number is kind of legit and not overzealous like the 90's unis but still distinct and identifiable with the brand.

Are those wings?

3 stripes because Adidas

That would be the Phoenix Coyotes of the NBA, minus -- i hope -- the constant threat of relocation.

I'm just hoping for some tweaking of the branding, modernizing it, and simplifying of the uniforms, that is all.

People can hate Adidas all they want, but they have never forced the 3 stripes onto an NBA game jersey. Only practice jerseys, warmups, D-League, and ASG.

It would be better if they avoided WNBA and ASG too. I'm fine with everything else though/

But you don't think Adidas would approve a design like this in a heartbeat even though it looks like crap? Yeah they don't put three stripes on jerseys, but still, this is their doing and they would vehemently try to convince all parties that this design is good
