NBA 90s Fauxbacks

Recommended Posts

Based of my other thread in which im doing MLB 70s fauxbacks, here im going to do 90s NBA fauxbacks. Gradients, oversized, over aggressive logos, and super complicated, asymmetrical designs were all prominent features that Ill be focusing on.

First up is OKC

This is awesome. It's definitely better than what the Thunder have now, and the logos are sweet too.

Why the hell are you quoting and responding to yourself? Also, why did you post that Pats banner too?

exactly what I was thinking! That's similar to liking tour own stuff on Facebook or retweeting your own tweet on twitter.

As for the concept, once again you took a team and made them beautifully horrific (or is it horrifically beautiful?) reminds me of Kyle Petty's (for those who don't know, former nascar driver) old Mello Yellow car from the early 90s. Love it!

I dig it, but I'm not getting the 90s vibe. Might just need some refinement. Maybe if the yellow was more golden/metallic? A lot of the 90s jerseys kind-of sparkled. Think this one would fit in with those (Sixers comes to mind).

I would honestly prefer this over the generic Knicks-ripoff uniforms they wear now.

Very nice. Reminds me of an old skateboard I had back then!

I actually REALLY like that Nets logo. That would be a great alternate, or even a primary. I like this series a lot so far.

Guy posts that Pats banner on all his posts. I keep looking at it thinking there's a joke relating to the post hidden in it somewhere lol.

Brooklyn jersey looks way too much like the first Orlando Magic set

I don't get 90s when I look at the Thunder. It looks more like a 70s concept more than anything else, but that may be just me. Probably a 90s concept would have included maybe some storm clouds in the background with lightning coming out of them. The jerseys probably would have been a black to midnight blue or gray to midnight blue gradient. The logo probably would have been like the logo St. John's adopted during that time.

The Nets concept looks more like it would work today rather than in the 90s. Back then there was no push to include city/state names prominently on primary and secondary logos. Also, most teams did not put anything except names and numbers on the back of the uniforms; you probably wouldn't have the BKLYN back there in the 90s. The logo itself doesn't really say 90s because of the plain font used for the lettering. Maybe if you used the same font you used for "Brooklyn" on the uniform for the logo it may fit the theme better. By the way, the logo looks like the ball is going behind the hoop rather than into it.

I'm not necessarily ripping the concepts but I don't think either one would have fit into the 90s. Again, a graphical representation of stormy skies on the jerseys (think something like a blend of the Hawks' and Rockets' late 90s unis) might have been what the Thunders' uniforms would have look like, while the set the Nets actually wore in the 90s (with the font they used for the wordmark and the gradient ball in the logo) were one of the typical 90s looks.

I'd say look at the 90's Sonics logo for inspiration towards the Thunder's uniforms and logo, perhaps incorporating a buffalo or anything else OKC relevant?
