    Morning…. Today’s sneakers are horrible. Too much science to them. Give me some Chucks. The best sneakers have come and gone in the 80s and 90s. I loved the mid 90s Jason Kidds and Jordans. Pippen had the cool AIR shoes. What are your favorite basketball shoes?

  • Josh W. | February 18, 2007 at 10:02 am |

    There’s tons of others wearing ASG specific shoes tonight. But did anyone see Shaq’s shoe last night. I’m sure this was mentioned last night in the comments section, i didnt look. Anyways, two years ago shaq had the phone shoe, not sure about last year, but this year he busted out the slot machine shoe for vegas. it was pretty funny.

    Also something i noticed last night, the returning champs in every event, wore white. The San Antonio team in the Shooting Stars Comp; Dwayne Wade in the Skills Comp; Dirk Nowitski in the 3-Point Shootout; and Nate Robinson in the Dunk Contest.

    Again, sorry if any of this was mentioned in yesterday’s comments section.

    Ah! Great catch! That would explain my post from yesterday expressing my annoyance at the fact that Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry wwere both Mavericks wearing different unis in the same event.

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned, but it looks like we’re not the only ones who have a problem with MLB’s BP jerseys. Some of the Braves players feel likewise:

    You might just have to be flogged for saying that the Wiz alternatives are good. I quite literally think they’re the worst unis in Sports. (Well, of the American Big 4 anyways.)

    And furthermore, I’m a fan of the Mavs Alternatives. I mean, in general, I think alternatives suck. But they’re some of the better alternatives out there.

  • Jeff I | February 18, 2007 at 1:47 pm |

    I know this is being extremely picky (but hey, we’re UniWatch readers) but most are calling it a Dee Brown vintage/retro jersey. In fact, it’s just the celtics current jersey with “Brown” on the nameplate instead of “Jefferson”.

    Also, I’ve been noticing that for the most part this Spring Training the Red Sox have been wearing their red BP caps instead of the blues.

    Few notes: Gerald Greens tear away jersey was neat, wouldve been better if he ripped it off while dunking.

    The best sneaker of alltime is the Air Jordan XI, my favorite to play in ever is the AJ XXI

    I don’t understand why everyone hates those unis so bad. I think the contrast with tan and black looks great. Great font on “Wizards” Good number size and font. The stars of the color of the other piece bring the two pieces together. The shine of the jersey looks great.

    What specifically about them is so repulsive? No one in real life would wear the same color shirt and pants but when they do in sports its fine. And I agree. But in real life, if you wore tan with black it would look great, and I think the same holds on the court.

    Looking at that picture of Amare, just another reason adidas needs to drop their annoying tendency of plastering their logo and stripes on everything – you don’t mix sportswear brands, and the ASG is going to prove to be a mishmash of this with everyone wearing adidas jerseys with the stripes and logo, and different brand shoes. And are those shorts made out of rubber or something?

    whats the problem with color on color. its great for teams to not have to wear a white uni if they dont want. id feel real bad for you guys if you came to europe. when inter plays milan, inter is black and blue, milan is red and black. away team wears white shorts and socks, away team wears their normal black. thats the difference. its a beautiful sight. even better when inter wins.

    this is probably a major Uni-No-No but in 7th grade i wore the Nike shoes that had a zip up cover…anyone remember them? it wasnt a fully detachable cover just something stitched on around the bottom and then the shoes were tied and then zipped over.

    Something like this only the zipper went the full normal tongue length and there were real laces underneath. also not the toddler size obviously

Clement, Hull and Chicken Parm were discussing which teams need to make a deal as the trade deadline approaches, and the first two teams discussed were Anaheim and Buffalo. The sad thing is, while the discussion went on, NBC chose to use the OLD logos for the Mighty Ducks and the Sabres. Weak effort NBC. It’s February 18, get some new logos please!

    Also, I noticed the graphics mishap on NBC. They also called the Crosby-Ovechkin matchup 87 vs. 9, when Ovechkin is 8. And later on in the game they displayed a graphic showing Crosby, Malkin and Staal’s stats for the game. Crosby was 87, Malkin was 71 and Staal for some reason they had as 9 instead of 11.

    I was surprised by that too, but I like the track jacket look and I like the color schemes. Especially the West so it’s ok.

    I noticed the NBA and Adidas logos were right next to each other in equal stature on the jackets. Just interesting symbolically.

    I think people see it as problematic simply because they are not used to seeing basketball jerseys like that. It’s happened, but not often enough for me to remember a specific instance. I can’t remember a hockey team wearing white “shorts,” with or without a white jersey. Football will very seldom go color on color like the NBA, and it gets mentioned here every time it happens. So, there’s no reason they’re repulsive other than that they are strange looking for basketball. That, and the color scheme makes it a bit garish.

    Goalies slamming their head into posts is not that rare, so there’s one reason. Also, a ball to the head at 30 meters per second could do some damage, especially with pre-existing concussions.

    NBC’s coverage of the NHL game today was nationally televised. To nationally televise that the guys in the truck know nothing about hockey is probably why the NHL doesn’t like having the NBC as a major carrier in the States.

    That, and the fact that Versus guaranteed a ton of marketing for the NHL whereas the NHL on NBC guarantees none.

    My friend said that there was a new rule and his high school had to get new uniforms. He didn’t know much, just that there were too many colors in their uniforms and they have to switch their helmet from silver to blue. This wouldn’t affect my school because our uniforms are all black (with yellow Broncos stripes), but I’ve not heard this rule before. This is in Illinois if anyone knows the rules.

    “Goalies slamming their head into posts is not that rare, so there’s one reason. Also, a ball to the head at 30 meters per second could do some damage, especially with pre-existing concussions.”

    In October, the keeper in question, Petr Cech, got kneed in the head in a collision with another player. He dove to intercept a ball in the penalty area, but the other guy couldn’t stop himself and charged right through his face. It was scary.

    I’m not sure why you decided to just guess when you easily find out what happened through Google.

    I don’t understand why everyone hates those unis so bad. I think the contrast with tan and black looks great. Great font on “Wizards” Good number size and font. The stars of the color of the other piece bring the two pieces together. The shine of the jersey looks great.

    What specifically about them is so repulsive? No one in real life would wear the same color shirt and pants but when they do in sports its fine. And I agree. But in real life, if you wore tan with black it would look great, and I think the same

    Looking at them is the most repulsive thing…and sports uniforms design has ZERO to do with real life… and it’s not tan/beige/khaki…it’s friggin’ glitter metallic GOLD dude.

    Get your FACTS right…and then leave.
