    I like the color symmetry with the Pacers. My only complaint is the ant in the middle gives off a Nuggets vibe:

    Looks better on the solid blue background. Even better, my city just got a G-League team this year so I'll be watching them in person!

    I would have preferred them just switch out the Black to Navy, and just emphasize Navy over the Crimson:

    For some reason, the new colors remind me more of the Grizzlies than the Pacers.

    Nah - I just know how to balance color. I can barely draw a circle in Illustrator.

    They've given no indication. However, I saw something the other day that Nike won't officially be the NBA's uniform producer until October. So maybe then?

    Agreed, I would have liked see them do this more. Overall though I'm just glad they didn't change the name. I hate when the parent team has to use the same name, or similar name. Why would anyone want to go watch a team so subservient to the parent team that they can't even have their own identity? I think only changing the colors is a good compromise between the MBAs and the people of Ft. Wayne.

    I'm not sure that info is accurate since the first preseason game is Sept. 30th. Nike would need to take over that duty before that date. I'm going to assume whoever said that is making a poor assumption based on when the NBA season starts, and not on when the actual takeover happens (or should I say happened). The start of free agency marks the official beginning of the 2017-2018 season, which is the point where Nike would have officially took over the duties of being the NBA's official uniform provider. It is unlikely Adidas is producing any more of the old uniforms because their deal with the NBA has officially ended.

    The most likely reason why there isn't any news yet is because every single team will have new uniforms, and they are wanting to announce all of the uniforms at the same time. That means two things. First they need to have all of the designs finished before they can announce, and two they are going to want to time the announcement during a lull period of the offseason. So I am guessing the announcement will come some time in August when there isn't much going on in the NBA.



    P.S. The reason why every team will have new uniforms is because it is Nike, and that is what Nike does. Nike is the Apple of athletic clothing, they are just a marketing company that just happens to sell athletic clothing. Marketing companies like to make big splashes, they always have to be trendy, and they always think they are right. Granted the majority of the new uniforms will just be minor tweaks, much like when they took over for the NFL, but I can guarantee Nike would not have accepted the deal if they were not allowed to change all of the uniforms so they can claim they were designed by Nike.

    I remember the Pacers wearing the pin stripes during the preseason for 2005-2006 and then premiering the new uniforms at the start of the regular season. Maybe they'll do it that way again.

    I think it likely happens before that since Nike is taking over and once they do they will want the Adidas designs to go away if they are being replaced.

    One of the points of owning a G-League team is to build a fan base for the parent team. To this end, there has to be an identifiable connection. If the name of the farm team isn't going to be changed (and in this case I absolutely agree that keeping Mad Ants is a must), then the color scheme needs to be matched up to give at least some semblance of linkage. Preferably you would find a way to also align the logos, but since one is a letter and the other is an insect that part is tough.

    Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...

    If we do end up playing preseason in the old ones, we should still know what they look like before that time. NBA 2K18 comes out mid-September and usually we see something from the game before it releases as well.

    default home whites are dead. each team gets four basic kits and the home team on a given night picks which one they go with and the other team responds accordingly.

    Good. It makes more sense to do it like this.

    I'm steeling myself for a heavy dosage of the new banana suit uniform if that is the case.

    So they'll have the traditional home and away, which will have different names. Then they will have a classic uniform of one of the teams most iconic uniforms in history. Finally there will be a uniform "inspired" by the community.

    Might be cool to have one with the emblem from the Indiana state flag on the front.

    The colors wold be right, and you could probably embed the team "P" logo somehow in the torch.

    The only thing is, I don't know if doing that would violate any state laws.

    Home whites might not be dead if the Pacers choose to wear them all season. I think you got bad information, the home team will pick 1 jersey to wear at all home games & the road team will pick from their 4 jerseys to contrast. Who knows what the jerseys will look like but I can definitely see the players wanting to wear a colored jersey for all home games. Yellow? Maybe a new blue one? Wonder when these will be introduced. Someone on Twitter mentioned Grady has seen them & he was impressed.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!).

    What kind of laws? State flags are free to be used anyway anyone wishes.

    Well OK. I had no idea whether there might be restrictions on how it could be used. You never know what obscure laws may lurk in those dusty old books of statutes in the statehouse.
