Looking at the tag at the bottom corner of the jersey, looks like they might be Nike too……surely. Peak Sports makes us look so cheap, hopefully we get the news we want after the olympics

Pretty sure it's a nike kit.

considering the awesome "the valley" jerseys they had last season, these are... uninspiring


edit: had my phone on low brightness when i saw these this morning. i now see the grey aztec details which i didn't see before. having said that, still look kinda off to me.

The 1993 LA Clippers Redesign that Never Was


1630314461936.png


In 1991, the Los Angeles Clippers came to NBA Creative Services, looking for a redesign.

Tom O’Grady, later the founder of Gameplan Creative, and his team of creatives at the NBA took up the task. I spoke briefly to Tom to get his recounting of the story. In his own words:

The Clippers approached me about rebranding the team at the NBA Marketing Meetings back in 1991. At the time, our NBA Creative Services team was just beginning to take on team branding work for the Suns, Knicks and Bucks. We worked with a terrific guy at the Clippers, Mitch Huberman, who helped navigate the creative project flow and dealt directly with owner Donald Sterling. We met with the team in LA and our meeting proved very successful. We felt the nautical theme the San Diego Clippers after moving from Buffalo really was less appropriate in LA. The surf and beach culture along Pacific Coast Hwy 1 and that lifestyle inspired us to use a wave; a morphing of the Oakley and Cooper Tires logo…and the color palette of sea foam green, creamsicle orange, black and silver came together as a strong color palette for an LA team.
The owner signed off on the new logo which surprised the league and the team since Sterling was known to be a master vacillator but on this one, he was a strong GO! After getting legal clearances, we put the logo into production and all systems were GO!
Time passed and we had begun to create uniform prototypes for the Clips, but low and behold, I received a call from NBA Properties President Rick Welts who alerted me that Sterling was getting cold feet and that we needed to get on a cross country flight to try and convince him to stay the course.
In the tradition of the Clippers franchise at the time, Sterling got in the way of his own progress and killed the entire project. What was really annoying is that Sterling wanted to start the project over using a nautical theme in place of what we had created. Rick Welts, who hired me at the NBA and who I really respect, told Sterling in NO uncertain terms this was NOT going to happen. We had other teams who were making great adjustments to their brand and if he wanted to change he would need to GET IN BACK OF THE LINE for any change… I loved that.
Well, it never came to pass and as you know, the team was eventually sold to Steve Ballmer for $2B a few years ago.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t exist (to the best of Tom’s and my knowledge) any photos of the manufactured uniform prototypes. If you haven’t seen the original images of what Tom and his team put together, here’s a best sampling that I could compile and photo-edit for best presentation.

Classic Sterling era Clippers. That's much stronger than what they had at the time (and have now), even if it's a bit dated by now.

The Lakers have replaced Wish as a sponsor, signing up Korean food company Bibigo:



Also, might just be the lighting, but it looks as if Nike have fixed their issues with the Lakers' gold. Compare the pair:
