    I know I am a "youngster" comparatively, as I am 16. I always loved the pinstripes because that was the jersey I grew up watching. However, I LOVE the flojos and the tennis ball ABA jerseys. If we switched to any of those, I'd be ecstatic, because I really am not a fan of the current unis.


    EDIT: Just in case you guys want some context, my favorite jerseys in the NBA are the Celtics (I mean DANG they are sweet) and the Warriors with the medallion logo on the front, it just has a vintage touch.


    I love the home pinstripes, but I must admit, whenever I think of the navy road pinstripes, I think of Ron Artest being shielded from ice and cups of beer.

    Damn, I didn't realize we've had the current jerseys for that long. Well **** I feel old. I gotta get the pinstripe George jersey. That looks too good.

    And the FloJo's are my favorite as well. Wish we would wear them as a throwback. And I wish the Pacers would take rel's design. Still think the whole design is bad ***.

    The FloJos bring back good memories...but dang I hate the font style with a passion. Just screams old, outdated, and is harder to read for me. If they changed that and brought them back in some fashion I would be totally fine with that.

    In their original state, I will gladly take the pinstripes as throwbacks.

    I love the FloJos but it's time to move on.

    I understand that most of us are more refined in our taste and therefor would like to keep the dark navy but we've had that for over 20 years now.

    I'm ready for some flavor and since when did Royal Blue become wimpy? I'm not talking like powder blue like the 80's were or whatever color that was, I'm talking about loud bright Royal Blue.

    Let people know we are here.

    I think it might be interesting to try using both royal blue and navy blue in our next logo and Jersey.

    I could see that, heck somebody creative enough might be able to make the colors fade into one another. I'm not sure how but is sounds cool

    Damn, I loved last year's throwbacks. Those need to make the regular rotation.

    Those practice cardigans last year were slick, too.

    I would love to see the "fadeaway" jersey style as an actual jersey style. Not that grotesque, but more cornered, and seamless. White fading to yellow for home jerseys, blue fading to yellow for away jerseys, yellow to blue for alternate. It would be an interesting concept to imagine.

    EDIT: or, as earlier stated, the alternates could be one blue (royal) fading to another (navy). Don't forget that the trim (and rest) of the jerseys will be shades of blue, yellow, and white, as well.

    Our arena, their arena, Rucker park, it just doesn't matter. We're bigger, longer, younger, faster, and hungrier.

    Although I love the flo-jo's, that George pinstripe looks great.

    Also, I completely agree that we should go with a royal blue for the next jerseys. I have a royal blue Hibbert throwback (risky purchase to make last year now that I think about it) and it looks great.
    I love the pinstripes. Underrated imo.

    I want us to change uniforms, but I hope we don't change our logo. I don't even see why the slight upgrade in 2005 was necessary, but I can live with it since it basically looks the same. Great logos should not be changed and I hope the Pacers keep the P with the ball forever. You don't see the Celtics, Lakers, or Bulls changing logos.

    Either way I'm just ready for a new Uniform for our team. The only real difference to me between the pinstripes & our current uniforms is the pinstripes. (yes I know there are other differences but it's more similar than it is not).

    Those throwbacks from last year really have me wanting to go back to Royal Blue instead of the navy blue we use now.
    a lot of teams have been going to the retro but modern look lately. i like they royal blue too

    Didn't Jermaine help design the current jerseys, or am I making that up?
    (Another vote for pinstripes over flo jo)
    He and SJax just modeled them. That's all.

    Yea...Please no. Any 'fading' or gradients on uniforms is generally a bad idea. I'm not a huge fan of any of those 'fashion' jerseys Adidas concocts...

    I really feel like it's time to stop denying what we already know, which is, that even tho the Flo Jo's are retro, they actually looking awesome and should be our jersey. Lets just do that Herb ok?

    I was basically envisioning another tweak to the same logo. Maybe swap out the gray with royal blue or something like that. Or maybe the royal blue replaces the navy blue and then the navy blue replaces the gray. Or maybe even replace the yellow ball with a royal blue ball. Something to play around with.

    My guess is it has something to do with Adidas having exclusive licensing for NBA products and a conflict with the original distributor of the FloJos.

    That would've explained it, if true.

    maybe there's some sort of creative licensing issue that can't be resolved since FloJo passed?
    I think if this were true, then I doubt the Pacers would be able to sell the Hardwood Classics of Reggie, Dale, Antonio, and Rik in the Gift Shop, nor would Mitchell & Ness be able to produce their overpriced, oversized "authentic" Pacer FloJo gear. I have bugged them for years about the FloJos, and I would love to know the reason why they've kept them away from us, considering how popular they were and still are.

    Also, something I always found interesting: the NBA 2K Series has NEVER had the FloJo's as usable retro jerseys, but the NBA Live Series always had them.
