Sheesh. How did THAT logo make it as the final choice? Looks like a D league logo. Clips had a good opportunity to come out with a sick logo with those colors and they just made it worse!

Apparently the new jerseys are available on clippersstore.com. The road ones are AWFUL. The home ones look decent though

Those are seriously almost bad enough for me to root for a new team. Almost. Ugh so plain, just turrible. I said in another thread that it looks like the old Intelivison game Snafu. That isn't something you should be designing an NBA logo around.

Yup. Worst in NBA. Had a chance to make a cool themed ones like multiple fans submitted.

You're telling me the Milwaukee ****ing Bucks can come out with some badass new uniforms but the Clippers of Los ****ing Angeles with their gazillionaire owner can't come up with anything better than this crap? Who the hell did they hire as the designers??[emoji23]

Some 9 year old kid, possibly with a developmental disability.

LMAO. OKC Thunder blogger said he was able to recreate it in 5 minutes on MS Paint. The black, white and blue ones aren't bad.... but the reds are ATROCIOUS. So much potential to make a cool ship/anchor theme though and move on from these colors. Old 80's baby blues and reds would of been sick. Or Buffalo orange and black.

The road jerseys are terrible.

Those road jerseys probably makes DeAndre Jordan avoid resigning with the Clippers now.

They are THAT bad. :laugh:

Ya, the road jerseys absolutely suck. I think the home white look good though.

I've calmed down a bit. I was legit mad when I saw that ****. The snafu CLA thing doesn't look so bad when it's inside the basketball, but it looks terrible by itself. Like it is on the jersey.

The logo is terrible and so are the uniforms.

LMAO! EA Sports putting Clippers on blast for jacking their logo. Love it. Maybe it will force them to change it with a lawsuit (please EA!).

Oh wait...that's these! WTF?

Absolutely atrocious.

These (red) uniforms give the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a run for worst uniforms in sports.

That logo... are you freaking serious? I feel sorry for Clippers fans.

Everyone bashing the design work...shut your mouth. The designer/s were following orders from a guy who pays for his work. So blame the owner not the designer.

Silly ppl.

Seems like you never did any kind of design work.

Especially in the high end design waters, you make many variations and then a customer chooses one or two and then you go from there. If Ballmer wanted this he go it. And a designer could either walk or get paid.

It's all how you look at it.

I'm assuming you're a designer of some sort by trade?

I agree the blame ultimately goes on the owner and whoever helped him make the decision.

However someone had to come up with that design. And it's awful. If they hadn't given them that option then none of this would have happened.

You can recreate a lot of brand markings in paint typically. It's not an award for complexity, the job was to design a brand for a billionaire, not some kids who on the Internet.

I would say the designer succeeded. Personally I don't think it looks that bad.

Guys they are giving out 60k shirts and even some hats all over LA/OC today. Sure logo isn't best but still free ****. Doc Rivers+Ralph Lawler will be at hot dog place at noon, Ballmer will be at a cupcake shop at noon to meet fans and give away stuff. Also ex players like Cuttino Mobley will be handing out shirts with the cheerleaders.

I get that Ballmer wants to make the team new again after the Donald Sterling era, and thank goodness that Ballmer bought the team.

But IMO that logo is terrible.

The design of the home jersey's remind me of this:

http://www.muchadoaboutbasketball.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/nba_playoffs_0_1397244028.jpg

Maybe that was a purposeful thing by Ballmer. Marketing reasons.

And the logo on the Red jersey looks like an ampersand. (@). Ballmer does come from the tech world, so maybe that was also intentional.

All in all, I don't think they are THAT bad. Definitely not as bad as all the Clippers fans in here are taking it. I couldn't stand the previous Clippers uni's though. They were one of my least favorites previously. (Design, not colors, except for the baby blue which I find to be horrid.)

Going back to the Buffalo Black and Orange would have been awesome though.

Really, they just missed the opportunity to reinvent themselves.

They definitely missed the opportunity to reinvent themselves. Although they can always pull back the new logo.

But I prefer the old logo to the new one, and would be fine if it were left unchanged.
