Slowly but surely, the Oklahoma City Thunder jerseys are growing on me.They still aren't great works of art, but they're not ugly as sin—the blue ones, at least.The white jerseys with the blue lettering, however, seem so generic that they should have been thrown out the window the minute the team arrived in Oklahoma City.
The slanted team name across the chest along with the offset number makes them stand out against any other team design.
The turquoise and gold would likely clash if it were any other team, but with the Hornets being in New Orleans, the color scheme just seems to work. 1 jersey is probably the most memorable until they switched over to the pinstriped unis back in 2008.
There was always something about the home Pistons jersey back in the early 2000s that made Ben Wallace seem even more fierce than he was in those days.
Teams in the NBA seem to change their jersey styles more than teams in any other sport, and for a variety of reasons.
The mark of a new era, a new owner coming in and making sweeping changes or just the desire to change a stale and stagnant design have been good reasons in the past, and it has usually led to a team throwing together a new design almost every year.
Most recently, the Washington Wizards changed their jersey style in a move that was undeniably for the better—most would agree—as what they have now is a nod to the Washington Bullets' jerseys of old.So, in a tribute to the history of this great sport, I've compiled a little list of the greatest jerseys in NBA history, and to put them in perspective as far as time period goes, I've picked out a player who personified each jersey in his days with the team.The rustic-looking blue and the 1980s Jazz logo really mesh well together, and it brings forth a rough-and-tumble image of this team.The new Timberwolves jerseys that hit Minnesota a few years back have all the ferocity of the jerseys back when they came together in the early '90s with none of the over-the-top look.The black and blue looks cool together, as it always has, and the jagged, horror-movie style of the lettering has always been a cool touch.I was never a big fan of the color scheme of the Wizards ever since they changed their name from the Bullets to the Wizards, but the overall design of the jerseys is pretty cool.
