'If the Clippers moved' - Buffalo Braves Concept

Recommended Posts

I'm in the same boat with you as far as not having studied enough basketball design. I don't really want to, it doesn't interest me like hockey does. I do follow Syracuse basketball pretty hard since the 80s but I have no pro team. If this team existed today I would follow the Braves. The uniforms look pretty good to me, they're unique in that I've never seen it done like that before. The logo is solid. Just a little tweaking is necessary to make the feather look more feather like. It's a huge improvement in the original. I like the color choices. I would wear that hat with pride but definitely curve the bill because well, I'm old.

I feel like if there were going to be a new team in the NBA they would push for the alt to be sleeved because they seam to like that idea

As much as you're right I would never allow myself to make one. I don't like basketball or really liking designing jerseys for it, but those are hideous for a team and I will refuse to do one.

Yet Adidas and the NBA can't get that through their heads.

These are nice and unique, makes me wanna attempt a NBA expansion.

There is a lot of words on this thread and didn't read through but I would really like to see the Home and Away with white letters and black outlines so it stands out more on the black and orange :)

Dylan, this is fantastic! I like the way the jerseys are different from most NBA teams.

P.S. I was 6 in 02 myself. Brothers of 95, baby!

Overall, I really like this concept. It would be nice to see more of the aqua integrated into the uniform. I seems like that was the primary color of the original iteration of the uniform (even though as I recall, the logo was black and orange). I think the addition of that third color in all of the versions of the uniforms would really make it pop.

Oh, man, 6 in 2002... I need to lie down. I was drinking legally by then.

As for the concept, I like the logo. I never once thought that was a leaf; it was always a feather to me. It is the Braves, after all.

The uniforms, though... Although the Alt, in fact, looks vintage and is a good design, I think the away is too similar and also looks vintage. I think it's the abundance of orange. Maybe the 3rd becomes away, and scrap the idea of a 3rd uniform?

Furthermore, it might come off as cheesy, but I'd be interested to see what the feather looks like vertically on the shorts. Or perhaps the primary logo, a la the Bulls (something other than the diamond shape, though).

Regardless, this is pretty good for someone who doesn't do basketball concepts.

why didn't you uniforms in original color scheme of Buffalo Braves

I liked Black and Orange better when they had that color scheme and jerseys. Also it would unify Buffalo teams a little more with the Bandits and Braves sharing that color. I always love when a city shares a color for their sports teams. (Pitt)

Tonight here are the changes I'll post:

Changed logo. Taking away the forced basketball, not needed. Adding more of a feather look. Adding a white tip to it. I think black would make the logo seem to bulky there.

Tweaked jerseys so wordmark is more visible. Taking away the Black alternate and making a Blue alternate. I know someone said to ditch the orange, but I loved their original orange jerseys and I feel it should stay that way. Also, I like the vintage yet modern twist, I think it gives a unique feel.

Changing court to one kind of tile and changing the website name to BufBraves.com.

Thanks everyone for really critiquing this. I think this has been the most action a post has gotten from me from just one post. Hopefully this next update will be the last. I know it won't please everyone but I believe if I do these changes right I will be satisfied.

You could be talking about me (re: getting rid of the orange). Don't get rid of it; I like the orange. I just thought the away and the alternate being orange was too much. Sorry for any confusion there.

Excited for the updates.

Oh it's alright. Reading too quickly. It's a tough choice for what I want...I want a black jersey, but I also want a direct orange throwback, but I also want a Blue throwback jersey...ugh my wants are too much!

Hey Dylan. Great concept - and great presentation of the logo. Although I didn't see a leaf In the feather I think that it still has potential so I'm curious for the update.

About the jerseys: I really like the striping. What I'd suggest is getting rid of the arching numbers. And on the shorts - I'm not a big fan of the different colors on the sides. I'd suggest thinner striping with both colors on either side to give a more classic look. (Although I don't know if that's really a classic look as I'm no basketball expert either ;o))
