Last week, 29 NBA teams revealed new City Edition jerseys. I’m here to give my unwarranted opinion and rank them from the worst to the best.
29. Milwaukee Bucks
This is just really boring to me. It’s described as “paying homage to Milwaukee being a meeting place by the water” but I just think there’s a lot more that could have been done. It’s not necessarily ugly…it’s just very…meh.
28. Indiana Pacers
This? This one is ugly. I understand the tradition and the stripes and whatever. But that doesn’t change the fact that it is uh-gl-ay
27. Washington Wizards
I am willingly going to wear a whole arm and hand on my chest. Yes. Of course. Makes wonderful sense. It’s called fashoon.
26. Sacramento Kings
25. Orlando Magic
Looks like the Pacers jersey. Not a huge fan. Repetitive.
24. Houston Rockets
I don’t like the two-toned blue. It feels very “second grade in 2006”. I would know. I was in second grade in 2006. Anyways, pick one shade, please.
23. Los Angeles Clippers
I don’t hate it. I don’t love it. Black and white is very classic. Neutral opinion.
22. Los Angeles Lakers
I like the colors I guess but I think purple and yellow is so ingrained in the LA culture that it shouldn’t really be touched.
21. Memphis Grizzlies
I don’t really have an opinion. I like the teal color in contrast with the black.
20. Dallas Mavericks
I think it would look better in black and gold rather than white.
19. Cleveland Cavaliers
What’s different? What is this font? No thanks.
18. Denver Nuggets
I really like this. I do. The only thing I have an issue with is that they called it “flat irons” red. It’s clearly Red Rocks red. C’mon man. You had one job.
17. Oklahoma City Thunder
I like the diagonal colors but I don’t vibe with that shade of orange.
16. Chicago Bulls
Fantastic. Love it. Classic.
15. Phoenix Suns
It’s pretty. I like it. Orange is okay here. Sunset. Very good. Very nice.
14. Philadelphia 76ers
It’s black and white. Take a guess.
13. Toronto Raptors
This is what the Mavs should have done. Can’t go wrong with black and gold.
12. Utah Jazz
It’s very similar to last years uniforms but not as…loud. Neutral opinion. Any higher would be a stretch but any lower would just be rude.
11. Atlanta Hawks
Yes. 100x yes. Love it.
10. Portland Blazers
I asked for this for Christmas and could not tell you a single thing about the Blazers.
9. San Antonio Spurs
I love the colors and the contrast. Clean. Icy.
8. New Orleans Pelicans
I don’t have a super strong opinion. I just really like the fleur de lis
7. Boston Celtics
Classic uniform for a classic team.
6. Golden State Warriors
I love this. It’s clean. The colors work well together. There’s enough happening but it’s not too busy.
5. Minnesota Timberwolves
I mess with it. I do. I might catch some heat for that but I am a fan.
4. Charlotte Hornets
I just really like this mint color. I painted my nails this color every three weeks for two years straight in middle school.
3. Brooklyn Nets
I love this for no good reason other than it’s unique and not in a bad way. It matches the style and culture of Brooklyn, New York. Now, please sign The Beard. Thank you.
2. Detroit Pistons
YES. This is so loud and wild and crazy and matches the culture around Miami Florida so well. Bam and Jimmy and Tyler. Miami HEAT
