Best and worst among NBA’s all-time uniforms

The NBA has long been a league of fashion, for better or worse. The Warriors unveiled the league’s newest jerseys last Friday, and let’s hope the short-sleeve look will be short-lived. Here, in one man’s opinion, are some of the best and worst jerseys in league history:

THE BEST

Washington

  • Road jersey

  • 2011-present

  • A modification to the old Bullets jerseys, recently revived. An example of simple not equating to boring.


Atlanta

  • Road jersey

  • 1995-99

  • Take note, Raptors and Grizzlies: Featuring a big animal doesn’t have to be lame. This jersey has some ferocity.

Denver

  • Home jersey

  • 1982-93

  • The Nuggets’ boldness has produced some real stinkers, but this groundbreaking design was a home run.

  • *********************************

  • THE WORST

Toronto

  • alternate jersey

  • 2012-present

  • At least there were good intentions with these patriotic camouflage eyesores.

Vancouver

  • Road jersey

  • 1995-2000

  • A possible reason the Griz lasted only six seasons in Vancouver.

Utah

  • Road jersey

  • 1996-2004

  • How the Jazz made two Finals appearances in these atrocities is beyond reason.
