Favorite NBA uniforms

Unread postby OldDawg » Thu May 19, 2011 9:13 pm

Following up on Swerb's baseball thread on the topic. Here is a link with SI.com that asks you to select your favorite uniform from the history of each franchise. I found it rather nostalgic. I must admit, I (and many other voters) was swayed by "who" was wearing the uniform. They give you four uniforms from different eras.

Pretty much every current standard uniform is better than the old crap. And the new Wizards unis (next year) are sick.

Some of those are too damn hard..

if your choice is between the 4 bobcat uniforms, who are you supposed to pick? all seem to equally suck to me.

80's are winning in a land slide.

FTR they have the Cavs years wrong, way off on the org Wine & Gold going through 92, 80's Cavs were as much if not more Blue and Orange.

And some uniforms really don't change over time. The Celts uniforms haven't changed much (The Penn State of NBA Uniforms - gotta respect that). The Lakers came down to which color you liked best.

I kinda liked the Bucks uniforms of the mid-90's just for the sheer absurdity of it.

The "new" Wizards' jerseys look cool, quite similar to the old stuff of the Bullets.
"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."
