What do you guys think was the best era for Jersey design?

Me personally, I like the early-late 80's. Some teams stuck with their 80's look through to the late 90's (or ever present), while others (I think spurred by the influx of new designs for expansion teams in the NBA and other leagues) complicated things.

I loved the old Hawk logo and uniform

The newer versions aren't bad, but they are a little too busy for me.

Other teams like the Pistons had some great uniforms and then had HORRID uniforms

Why do so many people hate those sweet Detroit jerseys with the flaming horse? One of my all-time favorites. What does plain red, white and blue have to do with a piston or Detroit in general?

Yup I was gonna say late 80's early 90's

early-mid 90s were great across all sports

in addition to nba jerseys during that time (rockets pinstripes, agree w/ pistons, hornets, jazz, etc....ALL WERE DOPE), mlb also had some sick logos then too (rockies, devil rays, blue and gold astros....)

For nuggets I'd have to go with the 80s rainbow skyline look. And the jerseys worn after that up until 03 were pretty bad
