View Full Version : Teams that should ditch their current uniforms and go retro.

So - I was playing NBA 2K11 last night (great game BTW) and I decided to make an Association team with the Bucks (they got some pretty good pieces to work with).

Anyway, I was getting ready to play my first game @ New Orleans when I started looking through the Buck's retro uniforms just out of curiosity and this is what I see this:

AWAY - http://www.sportslogos.net/logo.php?id=ajexmyixwffjl5gf16l6qfge2

HOME - http://www.sportslogos.net/logo.php?id=wujnleieta8olje5oejly27zr

The HOME uniform lettering/numbers should be green with red trim, not the other way around, but that's okay. But what do you guys think? I think the Bucks should go back to these uniforms, to be honest... Granted, they do have much better uniforms then other teams in the NBA right now - but they won a championship in these ones.

That's my two cents, but do you think there are any other teams that should consider reverting back to the retros? Or is every team cool the way they are?

Everyone should. Rockets specially I always loved their jersey, as well as Jazz and Sonics (well, we can't have that back, can we?)

Current uniforms are terrible compared to the 90s ones. Is there a reason why they made everything so terribly simple?

Yeah, I agree. Teams always try to be trendy, like in the NBA the recent obsession with the pinstripes - Orlando, New Orleans, Charlotte - whose next? But I admit, I like the pinstripes.

But also the addition of black into logos. I'm a Blue Jay fan, and I realise that the actual Blue Jay bird has black on it, but it was just an excuse for them to make black uniforms. But I miss the red, blue, light blue and white. Now it's just blue, black, grey, slightly darker shade of grey and white. Ugh.

Charlotte Bobcats need a complete makeover all together.

Honestly, I think they've already had at least 3 uniform changes since being in the league.

First, they should change their name from "Bobcats" to "Flight." And they need to tone down the uniforms, like a lot of teams do.

I mean there is a common trend going on here; the teams who have the best uniforms in my opinion are:

1. Lakers- just classic and simple
2. Celtics- "
3. NY Knicks- "
4. Trailblazers- simplicity always matters
5. Raptors- I like their current uni's

Teams with the worst uniforms:

1. Bobcats
2. Hawks
3. Timberwolves
4. Grizzlies

^ Those teams will always have to constantly update and change their uniforms.

Would be sick if they gave it a modern look(kinda like Golden State new jerseys)

Even though I like their jerseys right now, i'd still prefer a more retro jersey from the Lakers.

No need for the retro shorts, but seriously, those Retro jerseys looked sick.

The Knicks definitely should... teams like the Knicks, Celtics, Lakers, Sixers etc. that have a long history of bball should have that classic feel IMO. Knicks and Lakers should go retro (even though I like the Laker unis).

I have to agree with the Atlanta uniforms being bad. But if i am correct doest the guy who owns the hockey team also own the hawks? i thought i had heard they wanted to make the teams look a like? but i hate the colors, go back to the days of dom wilkins and i dont like the rockets or cavs, go back to the 80s and 90s PLEASE

I hope the Nets go back to their ABA jerseys with the stars down the side and their original red, white, and blue colors like the Sixers did.

The Hornets have always had pinstripes, I've still got my Charlotte Hornets Larry Johnson jersey. I think the Bobcats were just trying to tap into that...I don't think its b/c of trends for those two teams but Orlando probably, I can't recall them every having pin stripes

Just a reminder guys, please just link to images rather than posting them here :cheers:

As for the jerseys, I think almost every team in the NBA needs to go back to their older jerseys. Teams like the Lakers and Celtics haven't strayed too far away from what their jerseys used to be which I like.

Philadelphia tried to go back to their older style but they made a mess of it in my opinion, they should have just gone entirely back to the older ones. I quite like Golden State's new look. They're certainly not as good as the older ones, but they're not bad looking.

Raptors throwbacks are a must. They were the best imo. That and the Retro Nuggets.

I love the Bobcats blue jerseys. Not really big on the pinstripes though.

I love the Suns Phoenix 'hovering the ball' logo but jerseywise, I like the older ones with the ball surrounded by the Sun.

pistons could go back and my all time favorite jerseys were the bullets... so sick i hate the wizard unis now so i'd be all about that. also top ugliest jerseys include

miami, they're logo is weak (someday it'll be like the bulls logo if the big 3 can put a run together)
the bucks, gross christmas colors
charlotte, never got it right
clippers, stupid logo, team name, and colors
wizards
new jersey
and the pacers, just a weird logo and team name, not much room for creativity

the best are probably
golden state
bulls
celtics
