Spurs Unveil Alternate Jersey Sans Team Or City Name On Uniform
Published September 20, 2012
FINDING THE SILVER LINING: ESPN.com’s Paul Lukas wrote the new jersey “arguably looks more like a practice uni.” Lukas: “I'm a ‘less is more’ guy, so I'm generally fine with minimalist designs, although this one is really pushing it. The most interesting thing about it is that the jersey doesn't include the team name or the city name” (ESPN.com, 9/19). In San Antonio, Dan McCarney noted while "certainly unique, these togs just aren’t all that interesting.” They took a “bold step by removing any specific identification and went strictly with their iconic Spur logo.” The move is “not necessarily a good step, mind you, but definitely a bold one, and that deserves credit.” McCarney added minimalism “is one thing, but these uniforms are just, well, dull” (MYSANANTONIO.com, 9/19).
NET GAIN: ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser and Chris Broussard discussed the Nets' new jerseys, and Kornheiser said they are “simple, they’re stylish and they are really old-school." Kornheiser: “I don’t know if I like them, but I know that they are striking and so from that sense, stylistically I like them.” ESPN’s Chris Broussard said the jerseys are “Raider-like” in that they are “intimidating, like the Raiders, and it’ll appeal to the hip-hop” crowd, which will be "loving these uniforms” (“PTI,” ESPN, 9/19).
