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

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.

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.

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.
