Okay, so you’ve seen my picks for the top NFL uniforms and top college football uniforms already. Okay, maybe you did. If you haven’t, click on each link to check them out.
And read on for my picks for the top uniforms in the NBA for 2007.
10. Houston Rockets-
After experimenting with some ugly pinstriples and other weird combinations, the Rockets unveiled a clean-cut-yet-modern red, white, and silver style recently and it has made them look like a professional franchise once again. A good mix of modern and classic styles.
9. San Antonio Spurs-
Black and silver is a great color combination and the fact that they don’t use those awful broad-shouldered jerseys like many other teams is a big bonus. The Spursstill use the old-school tank-top style and it matches the way they play the game.
8. Toronto Raptors-
A good example of a team that started out with gaudy, contrived, marketing-gimmick uniforms and evolved into a classical-yet-modern style that looks really sharp.
7. Cleveland Cavaliers-
With the start of the LeBron James era, Cleveland needed to put together something special for people to get behind and they did just that with this nice-looking “wine and gold” uni that features a cool-looking font and a clean, smooth look.
6. Dallas Mavericks-
The horse’s head logo was confusing when it first came out but then fans quickly understood the sleek look the team was going for. They pull it off very well with a great-looking combination of midnight blue, white, and green.
5. Chicago Bulls-
Some uniforms aren’t meant to be changed and these wisely haven’t been messed with too much since Michael Jordan retired.
4. New York Knicks-
While the Knicks haven’t had a ton of luck in these uniforms, they still have that classic style and the nice contrast between the blue and orange colors to make them stand out.
3. Detroit Pistons-
Joe Dumars deserves major props for abolishing the teal horse’s head uni’s and going with this updated version of the classic uniforms Detroit wore during so many epic battles in the 1980’s. Red, white, and blue is always a good decision.
2. Boston Celtics-
While some of the variations on this classic uniform with the shamrocks and other subtle changes aren’t really necessary, the core of this classic uniform is still as crisp and clean as when the Celtics were winning titles back in Larry Bird’s heydey.
1. Los Angeles Lakers-
Purple and gold is still the gold standard. No wonder you see someone in a Kobe Bryant jersey at pretty much every NBA game anywhere. These are classics and the Lakers have wisely kept them about the same for years.
