I will never understand what Doc Rivers is going through. I don’t know what it will feel like to have an owner like Donald Sterling. I won’t try to understand.
If this does happen and Sterling is still around, I applaud Rivers for taking this stand. It may just be a way to force action, but it’s a powerful statement.
I guess the idea of going with #32 is out the window. His original Cavaliers number or his current number.
I think he should wear #23 again. But then again, #6 signifies the new LeBron.
I’m good either way.
Ever since I moved to SoCal after the 2012 NFL Draft, I had never had the chance to return to Santa Clara. I only saw minor construction of the soon to be Levi’s Stadium during my final season on the beat.
I had seen pictures and videos of the stadium’s construction from SoCal. I didn’t know when I would ever come to see the stadium up close.
Luckily today, on my way to work at Yahoo, I got a chance to stop by the stadium before I boarded light rail. It’s as beautiful as I imagined. I didn’t get a chance to go to the ribbon cutting ceremony. But I know I will be back for a game this year.
Check out the photos I took here on Facebook.
I’ve critiqued a few changes in my last entry, but I think I will go for a full rundown. Uni Watch breaks them down in the above link, so I will comment on each story.
Let me first say that I hate the idea of Christmas uniforms. I think the money grab is really unnecessary. But people eat it up. I liked the old look of just a snowflake. But overhauling it is not something I dig. But since they are going to do it, at least this year’s look doesn’t offend me.
Majestic, the official uniform outfitter of Major League Baesball, is out and about at the All-Star Game. They are snapping photos of fans in baseball jerseys. Seems like a cool thing.
But take a look at the above image they shared. The quality of the lettering and the jersey itself clearly shows that it is not an official product. It appears to be a counterfeit jersey from China. Especially if you compare the nameplate lettering.
How very odd that they would promote such behavior on their Twitter. There is no excuse for that.
That is going to look terrible. Especially with teams that don’t feature any colors resembling gold, this is a poor design decision. Teams like the Raptors and Grizzlies dodge a bullet with this.
But overall, I don’t like the idea of moving the NBA logo to the back. Now adding this cluster? Shame on you NBA and Adidas.
