The Bobcats are Getting New Threads

No word if local politicians have been consulted or not, but the Bobcats are bringing pinstripes back: “It’s not 1988 anymore, and it’s no longer the Hornets, but pinstripes are back for the local NBA team. Entering season No. 6, the Charlotte Bobcats are changing their uniforms. Based on a jersey worn by rookie Gerald Henderson, the new style will include orange pinstripes on the white home uniforms. The design became public about a month before the team intended, when a trading-card company released a video of rookie photo-shoots.”

    Not as bad as the Thunder, but I don’t like em that much either.

  • Needsahcut

    First! For the first time ever. But why do I get the feeling I will be the only one to post on this?

  • Needsahcut

    Not first then. But hey, somebody else posted

    @Ken, I was just thinking at least they’re not as boring as OKC’s unis.

    They look much better than the “old” ones, but will the play on the court be any better looking?

  • http://djsklfl.com Jukai

    Polow da Jon: No.

  • ave. joe

    They look a lot like the Magic’s uniforms…not cool.

  • NJ4Life

    I do NOT like these new jerseys i.e. okc, minnesota, sacremento, orlando, and now charlotte. They look like WNBA jerseys and the neckline is all screwey.

  • riggs

    theyre fugly to me, and like average joe said looks like the magic jerseys

  • cramzy

    I like em’. Guess I’m alone on that

  • john

    they kind of look like the pacers jerseys

    im happy we are changing things up, and saw these a couple weeks ago when they were leaked. I can wear throwbacks now too!

  • Dirtybird

    At least they should get a font different from Orlando.

  • http://kb24.com Bigi

    Those Minny jerseyz are fugly as h3ll!Rambis do something!

    They look too much like Orlandos jerseys.

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    I still favor the retro jerseys.. red,white&blue bullets, old t-wolves (non scary wolf) and the red sixers jerseys are some of my favs. Still have a few but unfortunately the back of my wolves jersey reads- Laettner.

  • Young Lebron 23

    They okay

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Blue road uni’s? That’s biting the Hawks now, isn’t it?

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    On a side note, the Raptors should give up the black jerseys… That’s biting Miami, and I’ve never liked the Miami jerseys that much in the first place.

    These are preety nice now I hope A.I. really signs here.

  • dhowardmagic

    they look like someone took the magic jerseys, chewed them up, and spit them out in an uglier form

  • CJK

    does this make my okafor bobcats jersey worth more? lol

  • TD

    Much better and long overdue, but seriously…get rid of the orange altogether. Not even a trace of it would be best.

  • cp

    look exactly like magic jerseys. the thunder have been needing new jerseys since the first ones were released

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    At least the pinstripes are actually straight, not what the Magic were doing. Diagonals up in the neckline taper? And New Era pin styles in Bobcats instead of Yankees just being whored out into everything from neon green – to yes – Bobcats colors can stop some of that finally.

  • http://dgcoursereview.com Bro. D.

    Nice, as long as they keep orange in the scheme somewhere I’ll be happy. And now my Okafor jersey is a throwback, decent!

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    i am just waiting for the day Mitchell and Ness makes a Okafor jersey in honor of his rookie-of-the-year winning season. I will consider spending $250 on that (as it, i will say ‘oh how nice’ and turn the page in my eastbay catolog).

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    as it = as in.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ Moose

    They are exact copies of the Magic jerseys, with “Bobcats” written on the front.

  • Pompo

    there nice. i think we all can agree okc has possiblly the worst jerseys ever sure u move ur an expansion team but its like 2 years later i wouldnt b caught dead in public with a russey wb #0 on.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    The OKC jerseys are like some bantam replicas…

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    All that time stealing a team, they could have thought of a better jersey uniform than stealing the Bobcats + Knicks, then adding in block letter generico font in full OKLAHOMA CITY instead of OKC. One day maybe the away jerseys for the ‘Cats actually says just Cats, when Bob Johnson sells the team?
    For fun w/ Emeka, see The Blowtorch NBA humor blog. He looks really happy during the press conference. That will boil your blood BET and other Cats fans.

    Just what they need for a playoff run.

  • Enigmatic

    Uniforms are getting uglier and uglier. Isn’t it funny how most teams switch ‘em up every few years like that’s going to help them win a ‘chip, but the three most storied franchises, the Celtics, Lakers and (to a lesser extent) Bulls, their uniforms hardly ever change?

  • chintao

    Actually, the switch is an effort to boost income from sales of paraphenalia.

    I possess a polluted habit to conflict, but looking for this at one, I accept with all of the ideas presented.
