NBA Changes 2014-15 Season

Recommended Posts

I mentioned a few days ago about the different number fonts on the banners hanging at the Sixers workout facility...now there is a story floating locally about a potential logo adjustment...(not Ben Franklin related).....

Mentioned in the Crossing Broad article, here are the practice jerseys:

Is it me or does the new basketball on the 76ers logo look exactly like the one on the NY Knicks logo, albeit flipped horizontally?

Wow.

If this is indeed an official logo then it is one of the dumbest, laziest things I've ever seen.

I can't see this being anything to go off of. This logo looks like it was thrown together last minute. The 7 looks beveled, the blues are darker than what they've officially been pushing, and overally the lines in relation to the wordmark look sloppy and awkwardly chopped. We would've seen any changes on draft night, rather than a Big 12 post

I think I've found the culprit, and on this very same board, no less. Perhaps habsfan1 works for the Big12?

Why do people always steal stuff from here? Am I underestimating just how popular this site is after 10 years? More importantly, I've been coming here for 10 years. Oh god, I feel old.

I wouldn't be surprised if designers troll this site. Find a good look then add a small tweak..present it to the league and said they were work is "original".

A team just has "Phila" on the front of the jersey? Now that's stupid. What's the reasoning behind it?

It's just something the Sixers have done throughout their history:

Looks like the Kings are getting new uniforms? The team seems to be phasing out Maloof-era branding and going back to the old wordmark.

Good find! Most recently their jerseys have been more less combination of tweaks not really am overhaul compared to early 90s when they switched from RWB to Purple silver and black.

I'd like it if they kept the "Sacramento" wordmark from the current set and moved the NOB on the alt to below the number, but that's a minor issue. I'm liking this tweak (if it's official, considering the logo sheet we saw previously had no wordmark changes).

Looks legit. What is that thing about the NBA logo? Looks like a small gold spec on the collar

maybe a crown? nice find

The kings needed this for along long time

wow.. this is great! as campbell said, this was long overdue... i never understood the kings' decision to have 'sacramento' in white on their home jersey and black 'kings' on their purple uniforms

It's an official abbreviation of the city name and has historical precedence. Not stupid at all.

Considering how long "PHILADELPHIA" would be and how limited real estate is on a basketball jersey? "PHILA" is just fine. I'd even go so far as to say I'd prefer it on both the home and road jerseys. Having just "SIXERS" on there has always been a gear grinder of mine.

I disagree 100% I always hated "PHILA" across the chest. "76ers or Sixers" across the chest works for me. All day every day. Save Phila for throwbacks.

Cept I loved this one

Well they wouldn't use 76ers for obvious reasons (though I wonder how big a deal the number thing really is - it shouldn't be that confusing for a ref).

They tried a "Seventy Sixers" jersey once, but that sucked.

Don't forget the starburst unis, which had "Philadelphia Sixers" on the front:

That's a super rare one because Barkley wore 32 for all but a few games that season.

The Shawn Bradley-era jerseys...I was a HUGE 76'ers guy in the '80's...Caldwell and Bobby Jones, Dr J, Andrew Toney, Mo Cheeks, the trade for Moses Malone, Clint Richardson...then it all went to hell after Julius Erving retired. Those jerseys cemented the team's demise.

that jersey reminds me of when i used to do some work for Disney. on all their ads we would throw a star scatter brush on it. we called it "adding pixie dust"
