Uniform mashups are nothing new on the internet. If you’ve been around long enough, you’ve likely seen pretty much every sports league have their uniforms or logos messed with by some fan or design buff re-designing to fit a certain theme, whatever it may be. With that being said, it takes a lot to impress us these days.
However, Bleacher Report’s The Lab, which has done some excellent work since its inception, created their own mockups of what it may look like if NBA jerseys were to be transformed into football uniforms. The results were absolutely tremendous. Not only did they flex their creative muscles while transferring the jerseys from the court to the gridiron, the quality of the actual Photoshopping is absolutely top-notch.
And while the creation of each of these designs is impressive as all hell, some of them work better than others. I have strong opinions on jerseys (stronger than any adult man probably should) which is why I’ve gone ahead and ranked the five best and worst of the bunch. I’m sure you will disagree with some of my rankings, but should know that 1.) fashion is based on taste, and 2.) you are wrong.
So, let us rank.
This jersey isn’t bad, but it’s a little disappointing that the black/gold/red scheme was chosen considering the Sixers new (retro) uniforms are some of the best in the NBA right now. The helmet and logo stinks.
