As some of you noticed with the new Hornets uniforms, the NBA logo has been moved to the back of the jersey instead of the front where it has been for years.
According to the above link, all NBA teams will follow suit. The front will be free from the league logo (similar to Major League Baseball) and they will be placed right on the back above the player’s name.
But what about teams like the Bulls or Warriors who already have a logo on the back?
So consider every jersey you have of a current NBA player a throwback. And you know what that means? More space for ads with this new design. You knew it was coming!
Home, road and teal alternate. However, Al Jefferson noted that the teal can be worn at home or on the road. That sounds pretty neat since the uniform color is bright enough for it.
The Charlotte Hornets officially unveiled their new uniforms today and I think they look great. They aren’t exactly replicas of their old set but taking a twist of history and modernization together, it’s a good combination.

The first thing you’ll notice is that the pinstripes are gone. Well, not exactly. They may not be the main feature on the jersey, but each uniform features pinstripes that go down the side. That pays homage to the history of the team. It’s simple and unique.
What I also like about that is the stripes are only on one side. This is another homage to a very 1990s design where uniforms are asymmetrical. Having a major design element ONLY on one side is a classic `90s look and I think this is a great part of this new set.
