KIND OF BLUE: In Philadelphia, Lyn Kremer noted the 76ers' home uniform "has always been white, while on the road the team wore red, with blue as an alternate." But 76ers CEO Adam Aron said that from this point forward, "blue is going to be the official road shirt, with red as the alternate" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 6/5).
ALL THE WORLD IS GREEN: In Dallas, Rick Gosselin weighed in on the Stars' new uniforms, "I like the green. I didn't like the logo. I think too many teams have gone to the black, the white, the grey and the silver. I think it's good to get back to the green. The logo is too plain. I actually liked the star that they had in the old one in the state of Texas. It looks too plain to me" (DALLASNEWS.com, 6/6).
HEY, MR. BROWN: In Akron, Marla Ridenour writes there has been "much to like" about the Browns this spring, but the federal investigation into Owner Jimmy Haslam III's trucking company Pilot Flying J is "still an elephant in the fieldhouse." Haslam "did not attend practice Thursday, but he and his father, Jim, were on the field" for Wednesday's drills, and the "strain on Haslam seemed noticeable" (AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 6/7).
