Most teams stick with blue as their primary jersey color because they apparently sell the best. If not blue then they are red or black heavy color schemes. Then they try to go with something unique for their alternate jersies but those never stay around very long.

I think the worst parts about NBA logos are the inclusion of city/team names and basketballs. Most teams have MUCH stronger secondary/alternate logos.The way I see it, each of the 4 major leagues use their logos somewhat differently, so naturally they all have some differences in how the logos look. I like the variety between leagues. NBA logos rely heavily on wordmarks, more so than any of the other leagues, and I think that is good for the NBA. In the NFL, the logos need to look good on a small helmet decal and having letters would just clutter up the logo. Only three teams have their name appear in the logo that come to mind (Raiders, Jets, and Steelers). Plus, since NFL logos appear on helmets, they are constantly seen during the course of any game/highlights and are recognized by all as the helmet logo, even without seeing the name. NHL jerseys usually have the logo appear on the front of the jerseys, so during the course of the game, all fans see that logo constantly and it is quickly known even without any wordmark. Even in the MLB, the cap logos, which aren’t primary logos, but are seen constantly on the cap, so even without seeing the full spelled-out name, everyone knows it is their logo. NBA primary logos don’t really appear anywhere on jerseys usually (minus the recent chrome jersey logos), so they are not seen constantly (unless placed on center-court or on TV graphics). Of course all real fans still know these brands well, and I agree that the NBA has some great secondary logos that do not have any words on them, but I am not sure that the NBA alternate logos are strong enough to be primary logos. Two good alternate logos that come to mind are the Hawks head logo (which actually looks like an NFL logo to me) and T-Wolves head logo, both without any lettering. But, would the average casual basketball fan or non-logo nerd who sees that Hawks instantly link it to the Atlanta Hawks? I’m not so sure they would. Or would a casual fan who see that T-Wolves stand-alone head logo know that it is the T-Wolves logo and not some other wolf team? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe I’m underestimating these logos. Anyway, those alternate logos come to good use when places on jerseys above the NOB or on shorts, since the primaries tend to be too detailed in the NBA to be shrunk that much, but the primaries still need to represent the team as best it can, and having the name appear on NBA primary logos works in my opinion. The hardest part of creating an NBA logo, I would think, would be trying to incorporate wordmarks with the other images in a logo, and not ending up with a cluttered mess. The last two NBA teams to get new logos (Pelicans and Hornets) have done a nice job in that regard. They also have solid alternate logos taking elements of the primary, while keeping the primary bold. The Nets may have gone overboard with blandness but as always, things look better with time and familiarity.I know you aren’t just talking logos in this thread, but also jerseys. I just hope that the NBA doesn’t continue on its current jersey trend. Going with sleeves and logos on jerseys in the same year is too much. If they really wanted to go that route, they should have eased their way little by little, rather than putting it all on us at once, and ending up with something that looks nothing like a basketball jersey.

I do not like the recent NBA trends of putting sleeves or chrome logos on the jerseys. These are just gimmicky ploys that I expect will die-out soon (or at least hoping), but logo-wise, I think most NBA logos are fine and there is a nice variety in the league. Of course some like the Lakers, could use modern updating, but I actually like the Clippers slight update recently. They felt no need to try to hard and make a over-the-top flashy logo. NBA logos follow a different criteria than NFL, NHL, or MLB logos. Mainly, the primary requires city and team names to appear in words.

The league is also not very strong in terms of controlling identities within the league like nfl properties does. When you combine these two factors you’ve created so much visual churn by these mediocre franchises trying to chase the sports trend of the moment. Lastly you’ve had rbk/adi have way too much influence in redesigns and they are flat out poor designers. The only good progressive basketball designs that are coming out are Nike’s ncaa line which isn’t saying much for the state of basketball design. So many uniforms look exactly the same to me, with different colors. Atleast the Suns have an identity, mean while if you make the Celtics and Bulls jersey the same color, they look pretty similar.

I worked for years designing for various professional teams and they constantly gravitated to the least interesting design (which is why I gravitated away from designing for them).

If you think about the NBA and the consensus good looking teams you probably think of around 10-15. How is that possible? With all of the concepts that people see and think are great or with all the retro looks people want back, how is it that a team can still look horrible? The NBA has been around since the 1940s. That’s 70 years! The Sixers for example have a bad look, but great retro looks that they can switch to at anytime. If they switch to the 1970s jerseys, BOOM they are now a top 10 look. If the Magic contact that user R_E_D_D_I_T and get permission to use his Magic logo that everyone thinks is sick, boom they’re top 10 too. It just amazes me. How about the Hawks?

Man United youngster has ‘unsurprisingly’ started looking for ‘new adventure’ –…

first_imgWhen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became Manchester United’s full-time manager, one thing was made very clear, which was there would be an increased use of youth players going forward. The Norwegian has kept to his word, perhaps more so than he initially wanted to due to injuries, and players such as Angel Gomes, Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams have all enjoyed spells in the first-team this season.Another player used has been Tahith Chong, but the intermittency of his appearances haven’t allowed him to get any sort of form going.That, combined with the fact his contract at Old Trafford is set to run out in June next year has set a few alarm bells ringing around Europe, notably in Turin.There have been a few reports that Juventus are keeping a close eye on Chong’s situation, and Corriere dello Sport had an article on the matter on Sunday.Embed from Getty ImagesThey claim the young Dutchman and his entourage feel he hasn’t been used ‘enough’ by Solskjaer this season, and have ‘unsurprisingly started looking around in search of a new adventure’ and a project that would ‘help him become a great’.It’s stated there have been talks between Juventus and United for Chong, as there have been talks between Juventus and Jonathan Barnett, the head of the player’s agency, Stellar Football.Furthermore, the young forward ‘seems to particularly like’ the idea of a move to the Serie A champions, even if it isn’t ‘the only one on the table’.In the meantime, Manchester United are trying to tie down the 20-year-old to a ‘constantly more complex renewal’ in order to avoid a repeat of the Paul Pogba situation all those years ago.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoSmart Tech TrendSelf Adjusting Glasses Take Hong Kong by StormSmart Tech TrendUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

first_imgPFC Botev chose the Ancient Theater in Plovdiv to present its third team, with which the team will play in the current season 2020/2021, saw Plovdiv24.bg. The “yellow-blacks” made a photo session at the place, which is undoubtedly one of the symbols of the city.The choice is not accidental, as the main motive of the black team in question is a graphic image along the entire length of the T-shirt front and back of the Ancient Theater.As Plovdiv24.bg already informs its readers, for the first time in the history of the club the names of the players are written in Cyrillic. The Canaries will make their debut with the new team in tomorrow’s match against Beroe, which is at 8 pm at the base in Komatevo.The club has also kept the detail from the titular team – the yellow and black square on the back with the text “Pride of Plovdiv”.last_img read more

The only one, different, misunderstood – this is Lubo Penev at…

first_imgLyuboslav Penev turns 54 today. Whatever is said about his football career will be small. It has its place in the history of not only Bulgarian but also Spanish football. Everyone knows about his success with CSKA and the national team, in Valencia and Atletico Madrid his name is written in gold letters, and in Compostela and Celta they will always remember the goal machine from Bulgaria.His coaching career is still far from that as a player, but how many coaches have a memorable track record in Bulgarian football. He scored CSKA in the groups of the Europa League, became the champion of Bulgaria with Litex, increased the interest in our national team in the period 2011-2014.Despite the flying start near the goal line, Super Lubo failed to stay in the air and in the last five years his career has definitely stalled. For now. Still, he has at least another 10 years in football ahead of him. After short stays in the native CSKA and the backup team of Valencia, he started with Tsarsko Selo. His decision surprised everyone, as he had done many times in the past, when he twice found himself at the epicenter of a presidential election. Once he succeeded – in 1999 he pushed Iliya Pavlov from the post in CSKA, but 9 years later he lost the battle for BFU with Borislav Mihailov.Anyone who has somehow touched the work of Lubo Penev, can not remain indifferent to his bright individuality, which can be described in three words – professionalism, workaholism and honesty. And uniqueness – his behavior near the goal line is a 90-minute one-man show, which is why it is worth going to the most boring match.Such is Lubo Penev – unique, different and often misunderstood. Both from their own and from others.Happy birthday, Lubo! Follow us anywhere and anytime with the mobile application of Gong.bg.

Celtic’s Christie risks ban for alleged genital grab

first_imgLONDON,  (Reuters) – Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie risks a two-match ban after allegedly trying to grab Rangers’ Colombian striker Alfredo Morelos by the genitals in Sunday’s Old Firm clash between the Glasgow sides. The Scottish Football Association issued a fast track notice of complaint yesterday against the Scotland international for allegedly committing a sending off offence that went unseen by match officials.Christie had already been booked before the incident at Parkhead. Television replays appeared to show him grabbing at Morelos’s groin.The hearing will be on Jan. 6. League leaders Celtic, who lost the game 2-1 with Christie missing a first half penalty, said they were astonished at the charge and would defend their player “vigorously”.Media reports said Christie had needed groin surgery after the game following a separate tussle with Morelos.Morelos was sent off for a second booking after a dive in stoppage time. Rangers have said the Colombian, who appeared to make a gesture with his hand across his neck to Celtic fans following his dismissal, suffered racial abuse. A year ago, Morelos appeared to grab at Christie’s groin in the fixture at Ibrox but escaped retrospective action because the referee saw the incident at the time.last_img read more

Michelle Obama says boxed macaroni and cheese was dropped from her family’s diet when her daughter failed to turn a block of cheese into cheese powder. In an interview in the upcoming issue of Cooking Light magazine, Mrs. Obama says Sam Kass, the family’s former personal chef, took a stand against the boxed variety. “He said there’s nothing wrong with mac and cheese, but it’s got to be real food,” she said, crediting Kass with eliminating processed food from their diet. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)“He said there’s nothing wrong with mac and cheese, but it’s got to be real food,” she said, crediting him with helping to eliminate processed food from their diet.Kass gave her daughter Malia, who was about 8 years old at the time, a block of cheese and challenged her to turn the fresh cheese into powder.“She sat there for 30 minutes trying to pulverize a block of cheese into dust,” Mrs. Obama says. “She was really focused on it and it just didn’t work, so she had to give up. And from then on, we stopped eating macaroni and cheese out of a box because cheese dust is not food, as was the moral of the story.”As she marks the fifth anniversary of her anti-childhood-obesity initiative, the first lady says it feels like there’s “a new norm” in how families think about food and what’s healthy.Because food is personal and people are obsessed with it, Mrs. Obama said she’s trying to deliver “a message of change” that doesn’t assign blame but provides information needed to make better choices. “And starting with kids has been an important first step because, as I’ve always said, parents will do for their kids what they won’t do for themselves.”She plans to spend time this year encouraging people to prepare and eat more of their meals at home.“What we do know is that the food you cook is healthier, and it can be more affordable, but it takes some skills,” such as learning how to cut a chicken into its parts, Mrs. Obama said.The first lady said her initiative and her husband’s health care law will, in the long run, save the country money by improving people’s health.“You don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to be healthy, but you do need to walk your dog or take your kids to the park periodically and throw a football around,” she said.Her goal as an 80- or 90-year-old is to still be mobile.“I want to be able to walk up a temple or a ruin on my own and see the world. And I can only do that if I’ve been investing in my health now,” the first lady said. “And just imagine, if we’ve got kids 20, 30, 40 years younger than we are doing that now, they’re going to be some of the strongest 80- and 90-year-olds we’ve ever seen. And that’s our dream.”The magazine features Mrs. Obama on the cover, the first time in the publication’s 28-year history that food was not the cover subject. The issue is due on newsstands Friday.Follow Darlene Superville on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/dsupervilleapOnline: https://www.cookinglight.com/cooking-101/michelle-obama-interviewlast_img read more
