Looks like they are bringing back the bullets colour. In for pics

Gurk 04-21-2011 04:32 PM

Their gold alternate ones are ugly. Hopefully they get rid of those

NBA Washington Wizards New Jerseys ( Bullets Style)
 

Looks alright I guess.

jeffb 05-10-2011 07:48 PM

Thoughts?

It's an upgrade imo. Should have gone with this as their logo though:

Amazing uniforms... way better than the ugly shit they had before.

Warriors had the ugliest logo before they changed it last year, closely followed by Wizards. So, NBA teams now actually appoint right graphics designers, which are VERY scarce.
BTW, Toronto's ball claw is magic! And I hope it retakes its spot from the maple leaf.

they went 70's. Very hipster and stylish!

fancylad 05-10-2011 08:40 PM

huge improvement!

Dark Knight 05-10-2011 08:42 PM

Eddie Murphy approves!

Nice! Better than raptors red with black on the side.

BTW, raptors numbers are ugly too!

Nah, i prefer ours. I'm not a fan of their away uni's. But i like their home ones. Overall, they look better then their recent ones for sure.

Not bad.

VanCity 05-11-2011 01:09 AM

i might be in the minority, but they are ugly...

nevertheless, better than those god awful gold uniforms

MARTYNAS 05-11-2011 03:11 AM

I hate it too. What happened, everything goes old-school. This is so old, I like red and blue, but this red and blue looks like puke, and the designed is awful.
76ers, CAVS, Warriors... Now Washington. Why? Its been done, its obsolete. I never liked their unis, but it was better than this.
Well, i see a lot of people likes old-school design, so it's pointless.

for me it's a matter of maintaining tradition and keeping to your roots. I like it BECAUSE they went back to their 'bullets' roots. Same with Philly last season, Utah too... Changing a team's colours or crest is just plain wrong. Especially the colours part. Don't fuck with tradition and history!

This is also why it pisses me off that toronto got it wrong. but then again we are talking the raptors. It's in their nature to get things wrong.

Naw I agree with ya man, I hate them.

MARTYNAS 05-11-2011 08:56 AM

So I hate it, Chiggmo, VanCity hates it too. But it looks everyone hated gold unis.

It's definitely one of the weirdest uniforms, but I actully liked it.

''maintaining tradition'' sounds kinda weird. They changed the damn team name, but now they bring back Bullets uniforms? I understand that american color thing, it's Washington, thats ok. Even a little too much american theme, shorts looks just like taken from USA NT. Ok, but the idea is old. It's like hairstyles or Tkacenko's mustaches. It was cool 30 years ago, not it looks stupid.

Anything... ever... is better than a gold uniform. I can't take a team seriously in a gold uniform. I expect high kicks and jazz hands.
