There you go. What was rumored from NBA 2K13 is now a reality.
The Thunder have apparently taken their current identity, thrown it in the trash and re-created something totally new and called it their alternate. This set looks nothing like their home or road uniforms and more importantly, you can’t trace any kind of connection.
Instead of going with the light blue, orange or yellow, they decide to use the dark navy that I don’t think many people associate with the Thunder. Also, the design has been used before but it’s not a very good one.
I don’t like the fact that the “Thunder” wordmark and the piping don’t match up with the shorts. And having only two colors for an entire uniform isn’t bad, but for a Thunder team that has more than two colors, it should have used more.
This set is unnecessary and uninspiring. But merchandise sales will go up and isn’t that the reason why we have alternate uniforms to begin with anyway?
I am disappointed with this. The only thing that can cheer me up is to see what the new Warriors alternates are but a word from a bird tells me that might not look so good too.
