    I thought Green wasn't in their color scheme anymore (logo). It's like if the Rockets came out with an alt jersey that had yellow in it.

    Those are tight. Going back to the green is a great idea--always was.

    That's exactly what I thought. Colors are very similar to the old Jerseys from the Reunion Arena days. The font Makes me think of something from back in the 70's.

    The green would be ok if not for the two-tone blue. They need to lose the lighter blue and then it would be pretty cool.

    I would need to see them actually wear it. That's when you can tell if they look cool or not.

    Talking about not so good unis, I am still finidng hard to get used to those now hideous looking stripes on our unis. What was/is the point of the two swooping stripes on our unis? I thought it would grown on me by now but I do not see myself buying those unis especially the homw white. I gues I am alone on this.

    Agreed.

    The green color and the front style are nice but the blue side pales the taste, imo.

    They are trying to capitalize on the trendy "old skool" look.

    imo, i think they look cool and unique. if i can remember correctly when they unveiled the unis, they said that the reason for the stripes on the sides of the top and the shorts are for "rocket trail". like, "booster trails" or something. im not so sure, but i do remember reading something about that here in this board when the unis were unveiled..

    p.diddy designed those unis right? remember last year, he said that he will design the new alternate mavs unis because of the horror of last year's alternate unis. and knowing that he is a rapper and a big fan of throwback jerseys, that's how this year's unis ended up. its just my opinion and guess on this but one thing is true though, they are capitalizing on the throwback trend that's been going on. that is also one of the reasons why nba decided to have retro nights, to sell more merchandise.. pretty clever if you ask me..

    Basketball along with every other sport is all about merchandising as well. I mean why do you think the Yankees have so much more money. They are the most marketed team in the world and have so much merchandise it's not even funny.

    Of course with the new throwback phase everyone is going to capatalize. Do you think they are coming out with these alternates for the heck of it. They want another Jersey to be sold in the stores along with the others. The more merchandise they can get out the more money they all make.

    Dallas Mavericks Say Diddy's Designing Their Duds

    Jay-Z may rap about not wanting to wear jerseys anymore because he's over 30, but 30-plus P. Diddy doesn't think there's anything wrong with throwing on sporting garb, especially if he's the one designing it.

    Diddy will design the Dallas Mavericks' alternate uniforms for the 2004-2005 season, representatives of the NBA team said Friday (December 5).

    "The future is now," Mavericks merchandising director Tim Henning said from Dallas. "We think he's the perfect designer for this kind of project. He knows design, he knows what's happening in terms of what we think is street-credible. Nobody out there is as equipped as Puff — and Sean John, specifically — to take on a project like this. [People] are wearing uniforms as fashion, and who's the guy on top in urban fashion? P. Diddy."

    The b-ballers will wear their alternate unis at least 12 times during the season but could sport them on the court more times than that.

    Henning said the relationship between Diddy and the team began two years ago, when the hip-hop mogul befriended headline-making Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, but it was two weeks ago that the uniform idea really gathered steam.

    "The relationship could develop into something more significant," Henning said. The two sides are talking about Diddy designing ancillary pieces to accompany the jerseys, such as shooting shirts and shorts. But first the jerseys are expected to be unveiled at the annual Magic fashion convention in February. The jerseys should be available in stores with other NBA attire next fall. Mavericks players will begin wearing their new gear in the 2004 preseason.

    Henning clarified that the uniforms will not bear the Sean John clothing line logo because of Reebok's licensing deal with the NBA, but he said there'll be some element on the garments that identifies them as Sean John.

    Neither Diddy nor his spokesperson at Bad Boy could be reached at press time, and Diddy's rep at Sean John said he hadn't heard about the Mavericks deal.

    On the music side, Diddy's next Bad Boy release will be Carl Thomas' Let's Talk About It, due February 10.
