Wizards’ ‘Baltimore Pride’ uniforms are a complete mess

I am all for throwbacks. I am all for uniforms that take some throwback elements. But the Wizards’ “Baltimore Pride” uniforms are juts a complete mess.

The first issue presented are the sleeves. Once again, sleeves don’t need to exist.

Secondly, the use of the Wizards’ colors instead of the old Baltimore Bullets colors make it a really odd design. Of course the Wizards are promoting their own brand, so the use of their current colors make sense.

But the biggest issue are the logos. If this is a “Baltimore Pride” uniform, then why does the uniform feature logos that feature the Washington Monument and the “DC” wordmark? That’s not Baltimore at all. The only thing Baltimore is the borrowed design template.

Of course, this pride attempt is just another cash grab at people’s heartstrings. What a messy attempt to make something meaningful.
