"Nike unveils all "City Edition" Jerseys--some heat in here for sure"


  

          

https://solecollector.com/news/2017/12/nike-nba-city-edition-jerseys/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%20all&utm_content=Daily%20all%20CID_3b4214ccae14da8358e7f387aea72d84&utm_source=Campaign%20Monitor%20newsletter&utm_term=Nike%20Unveils%20NBA%20City%20Edition%20Jerseys


Some of these I don't understand, especially the color palettes but there were fewer "ewwwwww" responses and more "whoa, those are fucking sick!" ones than I expected.

I love that they are heavy on graphics and other bold designs. To me this redeems the rather tepid job they did designing the standard home/road jerseys and most of the alts. A lot of these are bold. I hope they change these every year, make them one-year-only styles.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Those Heat and Clipper unis are amazing.

Did Nike just have a shit ton of grey fabric sitting around, though? That's a lot of teams whose fanbase was apparently clamoring for grey that I never realized.

-The Knicksโ€™ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

But I like a lot of these. Like you said, these choices are bolder and I guess riskier than the other releases. The ones that I think don't work are the more conservative choices (like the Wolves' and Rockets' uniform)

The Clippers' uniforms ought to be their standard away uniform. I don't know why they don't embrace the nautical interpretation of their name. Seems like an obvious winner to me. Then again, even with the Clippers being better over the last handful of years, they still don't always make the best choices.

If the idea was to incorporate the city into the design...the majority of these are whiffs

Mostly disappointed in my 6ers design

I had to read the description to realize the piss color and phila script was a homage to the Declaration of Independence...just looks like a lazy design to me

They can squeeze the Golden Gate Bridge and a Chinese theme into the GSW jersey...who play in OAK BTW...along with a dynamic color scheme...but Philly gets a nut rag with Phila scribbled on it...FOH!
'
Same for CLE. Known as the home of the rock and roll HOF...

...and Minny...the twin cities...

PHX

ATL

DAL

I could go on...having been to all of these cities...I don't think they followed through on the city theme for each franchise

Even the LAL...which I happen to actually really like...doesn't have a thing to do with the city

A lot of these feel lazy, uninspired, obvious merchandising money grab IMO

Yao Ming doesn't play for HOU anymore...HELLO, ๐Ÿ˜‚

as far as theme/city but let's relax, they will have new ones every year most likely and can't burn all the ideas at once.

>Mostly disappointed in my 6ers design

it's classy and it looks good but it's super short on thematic elements. like, as in, it doesn't have any. let's wait for some crazy ass liberty bell/independence hall thing later.

>I had to read the description to realize the piss color and
>phila script was a homage to the Declaration of
>Independence...just looks like a lazy design to me

i wouldn't say lazy but overly subtle.

>scribbled on it...FOH!

>Same for CLE. Known as the home of the rock and roll HOF...

i think the cleveland one looks nice and they will roll out stronger themes later. nike will give them plenty of attention, three pretty big endorsers there with lebron, it3 and love.

>...and Minny...the twin cities...

minnie looks decent to me, what would they have in terms of a twin cities theme? not all of them were like hit-you-over-the-head themed like portland, the lakers and golden state, in fact most were not. the bucks one is very subtle but very nice, lovely design.

>PHX

yeah it needed to have more going on, i also hope they bring back the bursting sun jerseys soon.

>ATL

those are kinda wack but a lot like their regular black jerseys, i guess.

>DAL

that or memphis would be my least favorite

>I could go on...having been to all of these cities...I don't

Still hella Chinese people in Houston, man.


I feel like most of the ones you don't like I didn't like either but what about Chicago, Milwaukee, Golden State, Sacramento, OKC, Portland, Utah, Miami, etc. There are a lot of nice ones here. I was very critical of Nike on the first go-round but this offers a bit of redemption.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

In response to Reply # 31


  

          

And the Sixers one I think is pretty clear from the parchment color and the font on the crest. The DOI is a little more familiar than a protest sign from 60 years ago, for example. That said I think the Sixers one was another good concept, so-so execution, if only because the color doesn't translate well to fabric. A lot of them are pretty obvious and more are obvious to locals, which is the idea here, right?

Almost like they get dragged by a focus group and keep coming up with worse ideas. When the Philips renovation is complete, they need to hit the reset button again on that nightmare.

In response to Reply # 18


  

          

Yes the white/red is traditional but sometimes it had blue, sometimes it had gold, and then they also had a weird royal blue/lime green period, a black/red period, a navy blue/red period and now these strange volt color. They wanted to be like the Seahawks, go with a bankable dark color and then some bright thing that could become their signature. I don't like it but I don't hate it either, better than the boring shit they wore during the navy era. I liked the Big Hawk, the 60s ones with the blue and the Pacman ones, I guess the 70s white/red was nice, too.

In response to Reply # 20


          

that is problematic in a lot of ways. If you read the press releases about that design when they unveiled it and continue to harp on it with this special jersey, it has do with the "future of Atlanta" and I can't think of any time any sort of clothing described as "futuristic" ever worked. I actually think black, red and volt could work, but there is no reason to go to the extremes of that triangle nonsense when you are already working with something as jarring as neon.

Mavs and Grizzlies are super plain, especially Memphis. Spurs, I mean, just look at it. The Suns is OK but too dull and on top of that they have done very similar ones. I like the NOLA one but I wanna see the back, I get the sense like the Adidas ones were better though the design is similar. The Clippers is kind of boring, I get what they were shooting for but they kinda missed the mark.

very hard to connect the dots there without a thorough explanation.

IMO the best Memphis also were the Memphis Sounds ones, these are a close second.

that the homages to the cities are not all immediately evident or self-explanatory.

i don't think they're supposed to be, or need to be. i like that some of them are just cool little design easter eggs.

the cream bucks jersey? OK, local reference, got it. this, without a visual explanation, is just a city's name with a line under it.

San Antonio might qualify. Utah I guess (though I like them a lot). OKC maybe (decent though). Orlando (it's Disney, man). GSW (sorta but I dig them, more loud than clownish). I am kind of at a loss to think of other over-the-top ones.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Not being biased of course but they are the best jerseys. That color choice takes courage and I hope it contributes to Bron staying. Give him control over the jerseys DG.

lol, it IS pretty bad. I mean, I get what they are going for, but the FDNY is the best reference to the city of New York they could come up with for a basketball uni?

42. "Yeah both are below-average to me."
In response to Reply # 38


  

          

The Brooklyn one seems too obvious and also they refuse to straw from their boring AF color scheme that makes the Spurs' uni seem lively. It isn't an eyesore but it doesn't stray far from their normal uniforms and the bridge element is not overly obvious but pretty plain, too.

The Knicks one I didn't like at first. It seems to have gotten good critical reception. It's OK but again there have been lots of FDY/NYPD tributes and patches and stuff, seems like low-hanging fruit to me and especially the way they executed it.

I feel sort of the same about Nawlins having a Mardi Gras thing again. Already been done. How about something jazz-oriented? But at least they look interesting.

And you will know MY JACKET IS GOLD when I lay my vengeance upon thee.
