We all knew that ad patches will be placed on jerseys throughout the NBA starting with the 2017-18 season. The Philadelphia 76ers decided to reveal that they have a deal with StubHub. And to celebrate that, they got those jerseys and placed them on statues of America’s Founding Fathers.
The Sixers have taken off any evidence of them doing this and Uni-Watch was on point with it.
And how are fans reacting? Not favorably, as expected.
The home and road are fine. In fact, they look pretty nice with the 66-degree angle thing. The alternate isn’t too bad either although I am not digging the font.
Oh but the sleeve Pride soccer-looking set is terrible. I know they want to pay homage to the past but this looks ugly. It doesn’t belong on the court and surely it doesn’t really even look that pleasing. Now maybe if the sleeves were gone I can like it. But they are there so I dislike it a lot. Adidas is falling hard in their final season.
Every time there is voting by writers, I feel that one or two would vote against common sense for their own attention. I thought that this would be the case for Stephen Curry and the MVP award.
But instead, all the writers did what was right and Curry is the first ever unanimous MVP in league history.
Curry was the obvious choice and him winning the award just shows that we are blessed to be witnessing such greatness.
Stephen Curry is going to win the NBA MVP award again according to reports. This was a very easy choice and everyone who had watched the NBA consistently this year knew that Curry was the best player in the league.
Curry exceeded in pretty much every category in his game this season, including his own three-point mark which he shattered. He led the Warriors to the best regular season in the league and has become the biggest global icon in the game right now.
He is currently recovering from an MCL injury but once he returns, he will get a chance to continue his quest for back-to-back titles.
But for now, the league will celebrate the great player that he is. No other player in the league was this impressive and this good all season long. Congratulations, Steph!
We were informed in a post last week of what the Sacramento Kings’ new logo sets were going to look like. Today, we now know what the colors will be and how it will be used.
Let me say this first. The Kings have had an identity crisis for about 15 years. When they were the purple and black Kings who challenged the Lakers in the early 2000s, that was a neat identity. They tried to roll with it in the following years and had a lot of trouble establishing one whole identity. They were changing wordmarks and primary logos. They kept the same colors, but the whole identity as a mess.
Naturally since they have not established their look, making changes is easy. This is what we have now. The Kings deserve better and in an attempt to stay relevant, they have followed the trend of incorporating an old design to their identity. It’s not great but it’s what happens when a team is struggling to make an impact.
Well here it is folks. This appears to be the new Kings logo set. It takes a piece of their history and gives it a modern take to the logo. The city name is there and the font is different. The basketball has an added seam. Overall, it’s a pretty good modern version of an old logo. (Keep in mind that the official colors are not known yet — black and white is just a placeholder.)
If you click the link, you can see the the other alternate logos. Overall, it’s a nice set but I will have to wait until I see it in its full color first. I do like the lion logos. Continue reading
This is a sad day.
We all speculated why the NBA logo was moved from the left shoulder to the back of the jersey. We assumed it was for ads and we now know what’s where they will be.
I don’t like it and I don’t want to buy a jersey with them on it. I bet shirseys will have them too. What a shame.
