I like the old-school feel of the jerseys. Class is definitely the way to go, something that still see being worn 100 years from now, without being redesigned every second year.
The Blue Knights jersey creates a decent first impression. Slight colour query- not completely convinced that gold and white can go together. Nice feel overall though. Not too dissimilar to the current NO jersey (which I'm on record as being a fan of- perhaps infamously already.. one week a member and embarrassed myself already? A new record.. and yes, I like creole blue as much as teal, more possibly. Certainly meshes well with the gold in any case).
The Red Knights jersey looks like an authentic NBA jersey- which is good.. however, honestly my first reaction was 'Raptors'! Again, not a slight (the present Raptors journey is an improvement over previous lamentable efforts), it's just that... it's going to be REALLY really hard to make an original-looking jersey using red (particularly with black). Chicago, LAC, Houston, Atlanta, Washington, Philly, Cleveland-in-wine and Toronto (plus Portland and Miami occasionally, and formerly (now) the Nets).. the league is just overloaded when it comes to red.
Have you played around with any tri-colour arrangements similar to the new Washington jerseys?
Oh, and I really like your avatar btw- understated, nice
Scrolling through these many names..
Arcangels and Blues - the standouts, definitely.
Arcangels has cache, definite dark brooding symbolic potential. I'm seeing something like an English football club coat-of-arms, possibly even a Latin motto..
Blues is relevant, lends itself to club colour/s
Some kind of combo (Blue Knights, Blue Angels, etc).. palatable..
General question- is support converging on a select few suggestions, or are loyalties proving somewhat divided?
Hi 42. You don't care about facts? One of them I see. You must be one of those pointy headed liberals that care about feelings. Nice avatar. by the way. Ozzy is one heck of a role model. That help explains your comments.
Well first of all, Marriam Webster isn't Biblical. They said that Christians are God's chosen people. That's not correct. Jews are God's chosen people. But I'm getting too theological for you so I'm not going to waste any effort with you.
Technically 42's Avatar also includes Kermit the Frog. I'll be damned if I'm going to let anyone potentially badmouth Kermit as a role model...
Seriously though, if I were you I'd leave 42 alone. You gotta pick your fights, and I fear you may be outmatched.
And theology should never, ever come up on a basketball forum.. seriously. There's a time and a place dude.
Take it to PM, Christian. No on cares enough too see you get mentally beat down all over the place in the name change thread.
How about the New Orleans 666.
re: pointy headed "'You shall not cut the hair on the sides of your heads, neither shall you clip off the edge of your beard" -- Leviticus 19:27 and I don't. Do you? Ol' (testament) school!
re: liberal, feelings. I'm not sure what even means, but am sure you don't.
As far as theology goes, I've got quite the education in that arena and can dance with you. Wanna talk the 4 literary traditions in the Bible? Apocrypha? Varying accounts of creation? The talking donkey? Numerology? Ezekial bread? Eytmological equivalence of the names for Jesus and Joshua? Translation lines? Paul's travels? The 40 days(es)?
As mentioned above, that's a discussion for elsewhere, but I want you to know that I welcome the chance to educate you and to heal you.
re: avatar, those are not exactly supposed to be role models . . . and at least mine isn't a 4yo 2-dimensional commandment breaking bee.
As far as the TOPIC goes, I don't think polarizing THE WORLD with a judeo-christian dripping name is what the NBA wants to do with its global market and one of its most cosmopolitain, and certainly its most European, cities.
The brand will try to be neutral to most people, have a little pep, and, hopefully, engage the locals.
Look for my daily suggestions that this board seems dead set on making has difficult as possible for me.
What did I ever do to them to deserve this? Oh, yeah, I was a grumpy . . . patootie . . . reaping, sewing . . .
It seems many on this site see you as some kind of 'god'. That's fine- you're a popular guy and frankly since you are such the genius, being popular means you are in the wrong group. Since youre some kind of genius, you obviously have no problem understanding what I'm talking about. I'll let you get back to leading your disciples now.
I've never been a `cool kid.' I don't, however, just walk in to someone's house and telling them what for. I wait a little bit, engage, scrap if necessary, the settle up and move on.
I'm fine doing that with you at this point.
Have a good one.
