i assume these will be hardwood classics for the blazers this year..not bad….kinda cool but wont cop!
Knicks should should rock “Gotham” jerseys.
how about ROY CITY?
Actually, I think nicknames on jerseys is extra cool.
For the life of me, I don’t understand why the All Star jerseys don’t have the player’s nicknames on the back rather than their surname. I mean, tha ASG is all about flash and dazzle!
How f%$king cool would it be to own an East #21 jersey with BIG TICKET on the back? Or a #23 with THE KING or a West #24 with BLACK MAMBA?
Ouch. The Rip City white jersey looks like it was designed by one of the amateur EA Sports Jersey Contest creators. Some issues: the rip city word mark, including the “p” touching the stripe; the regular uniform number font does not fit with the rest of the design; and the best logo in the NBA being dumped up there over the collar trim. Really poor effort, Portland.
The red one is decent, but I agree with Hisham: their normal uniforms are so much better anyway.
The Clippers jerseys are going to say “Not the Lakers”…
Rip City means everything to true portland fans and nothing to those who aren’t. Say “corny” all you want but I think that in this moment the sentiment is perfect. Fans of this team have been through a lot and I for one love everything that the team is doing to reconnect. Plus even the lamest alternate jersey is still fing cool.
lol @ wayno.. Funny you say that flash, people used to say Porterland (after Terry Porter) Or when Z-bo was here it was “Porkland”
Well said disliked.. Being the only pro sports team in the area, we take a lot of pride in this team.. In Barkley’s book “I could be wrong, but I doubt it” Chuck even said that Portland has the most supportive fans..
Why mess with the best jerseys in the game! Rip City rocks, but should not be put on the uniform.
