    Ironically, I think a lot of people who aren't Rockets fans actually like our jerseys.

    Agree to disagree. I've seen quite a few people on r/NBA saying they really liked it. I don't like them, but hey to each their own.

    I actually like our normal jerseys and logo unlike most of you here, but absolutely hate this Chinese font ones. Nothing unique at all.

    One of the few uniforms where they took a risk and it paid off.

    Who the hell at Nike is color blind and designing all these grey jerseys?

    Cavs have been wearing their atrocious grey all week and tonight Spurs vs. Warriors was entirely unwatchable. Definitely the worst trend in jerseys this year. Thank god Rockets got rid of their grey unis from last year!

    Nike really dropped the ball with the jerseys this year. Pair them with the obnoxious advertisements (that will only get larger and duplicate in the next couple of years because of Adam $ilver) and it makes a lot of games a true eyesore to watch.

    Adidas, minus the ridiculous sleeve trend, did it way better.

    I guess. I won't complain, because I know it's just money grab for Nike/NBA to sell more expensive jersey.

    The LeBron extreme makeover.

    Nike was probably working on this for a year now. They went from the putrid Lonzo banana yellow back to a classic showtime look just for the King. And here we have the Rockets still stuck with Chinese takeout box look forever. :(

    I guess we'll be seeing that version of the first jersey, in a third-world country or at some local thrift store.

    I'm no fan of the Lakers (maybe my Laker hatred will come out of hibernation this year), but their banana yellow jerseys last year were atrocious. I can't believe anybody signed off on those, internally or externally.

    Reimagined Clawball

    From the shores of the Pacific Northwest to the banks of the Mississippi, the ‘ClawBall’ has maintained its home in the Grizzlies brand identity for over 20 years. This reimagined version brings the past forward and integrates it seamlessly into the new identity system with some of the same tactics used in the primary icon: the increased use of Beale Street Blue, the introduction of a Steel Gray outline and the more equitable weights of the claw and fur shapes.

    This reimagined, redrawn and rotated version attacks the ball and showcases a stylized ‘M’ shaped by the three middle claws clutching the ball.

    Moving Memphis

    Memphis is moving. It always has been. Since 1819 — whether by river, rail, road or runways — Memphis has been the hub of the country and the world.

    This stylized mark integrates the Grizzlies’ neon-inspired inline and our city’s airport code into a design inspired by shipping containers that can be found on the rivers, roads, railways and runways of Memphis today. Memphis is America’s Distribution Center — but beyond cargo, Memphis packages and distributes its culture and soul to the world today.
