    Can we please bring these jerseys back, along with the dino jerseys. And get rid of the dumb OVO and Huskies jerseys?


    I never ever liked those jerseys. The half purple-half black look got old fast, the white jersey looked plain next to them & it was honestly a templated mess. When we scrapped purple but kept the initial design, I was upset as well..... the truth is, our inaugural jerseys are the best the Raptors have ever looked.

    Thoughts on the Timberwolves new jersey?

    https://twitter.com/SBNation/status/895680984854573056
    It's not a bad design, but here's the issues:

    1. That's the Wizards template. Nice click & fill, T-Wolves.

    2. Navy & Light Blue.... hmmm... isn't that the Mavericks colour scheme?

    3. WHERE THE FUCK IS THE GREEN? YOU BROUGHT IT BACK ON THE LOGOS, AND YOU AREN'T GONNA USE IT? WHY? Navy & Lime would be unique to the league & it really pops.... but NOPE. Double BLUE it is!

    Straight up terrible. I honestly can't remember the last jersey I said that about.
    I actually kinda like it. My only criticism is, the colour schemes looks a lot like the Mavs.

    Yeah the wizards is a horrible name, just like the magic, the predators, the thrashers..
    No rhyme or reason, just spun a wheel of cool words from the 90s and landed on that. And yes I know I sound like I'm describing our nickname but ours feels different, less vague or generic imo
    Agreed. Bullets was a great name and the Washington Bullets has a lot of history. I don't know why they changed it to Wizards.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like any of these nike jerseys? I feel like they're trying to hard to look "sharp" and "modern" which tends to look tacky, while most fans would prefer a simpler, almost retro look. At least that's what I would prefer.

    They were called the bullets since the 50s, a much simpler time. They changed to the wizards for 2 reason: the 80s and 90s introduced the world to black people in major cities such as d.c. and Baltimore killing each other with bullets, and the world becoming politically correct pussies and relating these 2 things to each other

    Totally agree. But in checking some numbers, the murder rate has significantly dropped since the mid 90's.

    These are hot trash. I don't want to like a team wearing these jerseys.

    I'm hoping those colors are distorted. The old colors were great, they can't go away from them.

    I don't know how great of a name it was, but it's a great song.

    I think teams that needed to redesign their look like the Kings, Cavs and Nuggets did a great job. Love the Sac Kings jersey. I don't mind the TWolves jersey. But I was hoping they'd brought back the old black KG, Sprewell, Cassell TWolves unis. But I don't mind this one.

    The Mavs and the Thunder are two teams that really need to upgrade their look. Their uniforms are just so bland and boring. But I don't think that's going to happen. They're bringing back the same look I believe.

    The colours are definitely distorted. That looks way too purple; I had to go check for myself though .. that's completely weird..

    Still not crazy about them.

    Just goes to show how much people's tastes vary because I think those are butt ugly and tacky as hell which pretty much sums up my opinion of the TWolves' jersey's since their inception lol this is the first one I don't mind (not love either lol) but at least these are clean and simple. It would be better if the line pattern were more unique and didn't mimic the Wizards pattern so closely but all their other jerseys looked like a crappy expansion/farm team.

    Yea I double-checked this evening and saw the actual colors. They look like FIBA jerseys still, glad they dont have purple and blue though.

    When the hell are the Raps dropping theirs? I hope tomorrow.. need something to talk/complain about.

    Here's a link with the probable Raps jersey. They nailed the Phoenix one, so I would assume the Raps is correct.

    It's a tiny change (The chevrons), but it's not a bad change if true.... NBA 2K screenshots show the same thing.
