Rare team matchups

So let me get this straight, the Pistons changed from the Bad Boys uniforms in 1996 then proceeded to wear them again in 1999? I looked it up and it was "Bad Boys Reunion Night" in the arena. Why wear something you just got rid of? All that's gonna do is annoy the fans.

 

 

Why do these teams do anything to annoy fans?

1998 was the first year of the Islanders' navy rebrand, and the last for the Lightning's storm jerseys. Without looking at the schedule from that year, I imagine this matchup only could've happened a small handful of times at most.

Only one meeting of each combination

Weird fact: a thunderstorm briefly rolled through the 1980 game.  Inexplicably, the refs chose to play through the storm.

Has anyone posted or foumd a photo of this matchup yet? A 1987-88 matchup between the Washington Bullets wearing their new stripe-less jerseys against the Warriors in their last year of the Rick Barry jerseys, going into the run TMC era. I can't find any images from the exact time but I'm pretty sure they played in that lone season

Another interesting NBA Preseason oddity. In the 1995-96 Preseason the Sonics wore their classic uniforms in Preseason, all those games are rare as it is but they played the legendary 72-10 Bulls team. Several months later they faced each other in the Finals with the Sonics in a completely different look. The last image is from a game at Notre Dame to make it even more odd.

Toronto Raptors vs. Atlanta Hawks

1995-96 Preseason at the SkyDome

What a screwy arrangement, a baseball stadium used for basketball.
