NBA Changes 2014-15 Season

Charlotte's new uniforms are god awful. I'm not sure what other people here are smoking

Great color scheme, but that's about the only thing I like about the uniforms.

They NEED pinstripes. And white numbers with purple trim. But definitely NEED pinstripes.

Definitely not terrible by any stretch, but these uniforms could use a few tweaks to be really fantastic. Still, I am glad they returned to the Hornets name seeing as they could never establish a solid identity as the Bobcats.

I agree the hornets uniforms aren't that great. The color scheme is awesome and I feel they knocked the branding out of the park, which makes the uniforms underwhelming. Also the numbers look too big.

Those teal unis weren't my favourites of the new set, but man they look good, especially the side panels look the best on them. Charlotte Hornets basketball is back!!

the teal is good but I think we'll see outlines on the numbers sooner rather than later or a switch to white.

I sure hope not. I didn't have any problem seeing the numbers.

Visibility isn't an issue. Looking incomplete is.

Call it an unpopular opinion, but I'm not a fan of this. Teal and red isn't a good combo.

Turned on the Hornets-Bucks game to see the Hornets in action, and they looked amazing. Top 5 identities in NBA no doubt. Loved the teal. Not sure what the complaint is with purple numbers because you could see them fine to me. and that court! Best in league. Then had to turn channel because I remembered I was watching the NBA, but Hornets looked great.

Just because we can see the purple numbers don't mean they look good.

They look very good to me.

I disagree.

All Charlotte needs are white stroke on the teal/purple numbers. That would upgrade them to being "pretty swell," but nowhere near ideal.

So, I thought the Rockets were supposed to switch their home and road set to a traditional basketball cut? In the first game of the year, they still had the "sleeveless t-shirt" cut on the shoulders.

"Cleveland" wordmark above the skyline is officially gone!

Still want to wait and see what it looks like for a non-national TV game, but hopefully this arrangement sticks full time. Step 1 in cleaning up that mess of a floor.

As for the Hornets not having a white stroke around the numbers, it seems like with most of the uniforms rolled out since adidas went to this current template have had single-color numbers. Off the top of my head, that's the case with the Sixers, Jazz and (of course) the Nets. Memphis had their numbers simplified too, right?

Agree completely They're so close to being outstanding, but as they stand now they're a bit underwhelming. There's something off about them. They almost look incomplete. I'd like some shoulder piping and different numbers altogether. I'm not a fan of the single solid color number look, I think white with an outline like their wordmark would have looked better.

All that being said, this is all still a massive upgrade over the Bobcats identity.

Right, so the NBA logo is placed the same place on all teams shorts, i liked the differences dammnit.

Stupid Adidas/Reebok and their templates/cookie cutter NBA and NHL designs

I'll take my words back and say that the new Cavs' navy uniforms are unnecessary. One alternate (yellow) uniform is more than enough. I hope this won't become a similar situation as with the navy alternate of the first LeBron era, where it became a de facto road uniform.

For an NBA era of minimalist design aesthetics (i.e. one where you'll never see full pinstripes, or big logos if anyone cared) these are near-perfect. I agree that the numbers could use a little something more than a solid color block font, but that's it

As a Bucks fan, I'd like nothing more than to see those red uniforms disappear. Hopefully we have a rebrand coming for '15-'16 anyway.

Anybody else notice how TNT is still using the older version of the Cavs primary logo? You would think after four years they'd have updated graphics.

I really like those uniforms...

Haha if I'm not mistaken someone from here made those wine and gold cav faux backs...if you look at the cavs game on snapchat (assuming some members have snapchat) the first one is of a guy wearing one. Crazy.
