    To echo the sentiment: I am sure it's due to the throwbacks.

    I for one am really glad, because I think the Yellow/Gold uni's are absolutely hideous.

    Not only that, but basically every time I turn on NBA League Pass and see us wearing them during warmups, I instantly get this gut feeling that we're going to lose.

    Dumb and superstitious? Yep.
    Usually accurate? Yep!

    The team will wear the gold uniforms this season. I don't remember the dates off-hand, but they're definitely wearing them.

    Rob, is there any plans to update the uniforms any time soon? It seems like these days uniform sets have a 5-8 year shelf life (absolutely no scientific research was put into that figure).

    Hardwood Classics go through end of March. I think we wear them 8 times total.

    Traditionally, we didn't tease a uniform change until the look was announced. I remember the last time we changed uniforms an NBA game preview beat us to the punch. I remember screen shots of Jamaal Tinsley leaking out with video-Jamaal wearing our new (and current) jerseys.

    I don't like the yellow uniforms, they just look like a less creative version of the Lakers gold uniforms. Wouldn't mind if they retired them permanently, and I will be really quite happy when entirely new uniforms come out. There are the second-to-worst Pacer uniforms ever (the worst being those really plain jane ones they wore in the early 80's for awhile).

    I really love the throwbacks though, so sharp.

    Best thing the Pacers could do is make a more timeless version of the flo-jo's and never change uniforms again. The really great franchises don't come out with new uniforms all the time.

    I remember that. Everyone was speculating on whether it was legit or not at the time.

    I don't have a problem with our current uniforms, but I do think that a revamp would be nice. If we do that, I hope we don't go really "Web 2.0" with it, making it look all smooth and sleek and "trendy". Our current uni's are certainly starting in that direction, but they STOP well short of it being tacky. It's a good balance IMHO.

    I really love uniforms that are more traditional or "throwback-ish" though, and would love for our next set to get that treatment.

    The pinstripes were from 97-98 to 04-05 (8 years). Hard to believe, but we've already worn these current jerseys for almost 7 years now (05-06 through 11-12) Should that gives us a hint that we'll probably update for the 13-14 season?

    As to the yellow jerseys, I've never been a fan. I don't hate them, but I don't particularly like them.

    Actually, I like them better as a HOME alternate than a road alt.

    Agreed. But only for one or two games a year... Preferably ones that we already have little chance of winning. Like if we play Miami and Roy and Danny are both hurt and the Heat lost their last game by 50. That way the jerseys evil powers are somewhat undermined!

    It's all about minimizing risk here...

    I would like them a lot more if they were actually gold.

    looks darker than your gold, actually

    more like this:
    Well, the thing is, the Reggie jersey you posted is a fake. Whoever makes those fake golds uses a darker hue than what the team actually wore.

    Oh my goodness thought someone was implying we need to wear the yellow because that little skid we had. By the way love the yellow/Gold jerseys
