    Default You Sure We're Getting New Uniforms?

    Looks like the same uniform to me, that would have been the perfect time to unveil the new ones.

    Well, as Jay pointed out, when Mullin came, they held up a Flo-Jo.

    People are excited about us getting such a steal. There's no point to throw the new jersey's out there too. They'll wait until after the summer leagues, then put them out to generate excitement.

    As soon as I saw that picture I said to myself "Carlisle is up there in height wit Larry Bird and Danny Granger??? No way! I've met coach, and unless I grew 6 inches without noticing, Rick's standing on something."

    Is Granger going to use "05" instead of a regular "5"?

    NO! 05 is just the year. It has nothing to do with the number he is going to wear, as addressed earlier in THIS EXACT THREAD.

    Anyone have any idea what the jerseys look like. I liked the yellow alternates.

    I guess the Pistons are tinkering with their jerseys as well, which I'm not a fan of. I think we have the best jerseys in the league. Simple, clean, and traditional.

    As much as I dislike the Pistons, I do like their threads. They're classic. For that matter, so are the Pacers'. But, losing Reggie is like the end of an era, so, why not have a clean slate?

    We're not going to change uniforms, only our logo.

    The Pistons are one of the few lucky NBA teams to have found that true "classic" uniform that can gap generations and never go out of style. That's why Dumars made the change back to the originals of the 80's. They're not going to change anymore, just like the Bulls and Celtics jerseys. Management has learned its lesson.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    What? The current Piston uniform is not the one from the 80s. It's similar, but it's not the same as say, how the Celtics has never changed in decades. Not at all.

    Its %95 the same, Hicks. Just like the current Celtics jerseys are %95 the same.

    If you take a look, the Celtics HAVE changed their jerseys just a bit. Check out all the celtics jerseys in NBA live, from the 60's 80's and current-day. They are slightly different if you notice.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I disagree. The cut is different, the font is different. They're similar. But when the jersey isn't even shaped the same way, and you use a different font, it looks noticably different to me. It'd be like saying the Lakers' jerseys right now are the classic design.

    I'll try to explain what I mean.

    Here's a shot from behind of an Isiah Thomas-era road uniform:



    Here's a shot from behind of a Chauncey Billups-era road uniform:



    First of all the material is different. Isiah's uses what I consider the "classic" fabric/material for a basketball jersey; don't ask me what it's called. The noticable thing is how it looks almost like a mesh; you can see the "holes" all over.

    The new uniforms don't look that way; they use some 'newer' material.

    Next notice they're not 'cut' the same way. I believe if I can find a picture of the front to more clearly illustrate it, you can see that the new ones have a "tighter" neck. IMO it slightly does in the back, and IIRC so does the front.

    Ah, here we go. here you can see the difference; though not exactly what I remembered. Isiah's has the classic "loop" neck, the 'hangs' down more and is noticably wider than Chauncey's, which meets at a point and is sort of shaped like a wish-bone.





    Also, notice the font change for the jersey #. The shots from the back show it well.

    And of course they've ditched the red stripe around the neck and shoudlers.

    I also believe the sides have changed from red with a white stripe in the middle running down to red, white stripe, then blue.

    Finally, the font across the chest is different, smaller, and arcs across the chest now.

    Now, are these all tweaks? Sure. But I just wanted to point out how and why they make a huge difference to me. They look very different in my eyes. And when I list them all, it's actually more than I original thought.

    If the Celtics have changed since the 80s, it's been much subtler than Detroit.

    Personally, I'm a big fan of the Detroit jersey's modern look. I'm actually hoping the Pacers' new ones are very similar, only of course with our blue and gold.
