Top 5 Alternate NBA jerseysBy
There was a little bit of controversy with this one because “ATL” is associated with ebonics. Still, there is nothing wrong with putting ATL on the front because that’s the abbreviation used on scoreboards and other media. It allows the lettering to be bigger, bolder and louder. Besides, nothing says “Hotlanta” like a bright red and the dark blue compliments it perfectly.

Red and black is one of the most commonly used color schemes in NBA uniforms, but if anyone deserves to wear it, it’s the Chicago Bulls because of their rich history. This outfit first debuted in 1995, when Michael Jordan returned from baseball. Even though the Bulls were eliminated by eventual champion Orlando Magic in the playoffs, they came back strong in the next year, starting their championship three-peat.

Two shades of blue is another common color combination, in fact the Utah Jazz had a very similar color scheme, achieving a very fresh look through contrast by saturation. This Memphies Grizzlies uniform takes that a step further by having both blues contrast with the yellow by hue, which does a very nice job of freshening it up. The only thing that would have perhaps made it better is if the blue inside the numbers and the lettering was a knockout i.e. the same color as the rest of the front, so the inside looks empty or “knocked out”.

There are three colors that go well with practically everything – black, white and grey. It’s a shame the latter is barely used because its dullness makes any other color look brighter. Orange is a color that suits Phoenix really well by representing the desert heat. White and purple doesn’t have that effect, so there is no reason why this color combination shouldn’t be used on the Suns’ everyday uniform. It’s a shame we’ll probably never see the Nashty one in these colors again because the Lakers should not let the future NBA Hall of Famer go until it’s time for him to retire, which should come sooner than later.

With the heat (pun intended) LeBron James got for taking his talents to South Beach, the Miami Heat were seen as the “Evil Empire”. The black and white uniforms were very symbolic of that, drawing comparisons to the NWO, one of the most infamous heel (villain) groups of all time. Even without those comparisons, black and white is a color scheme that always works because of the obvious contrast.
