哪支NBA球队的球衣是有史以来最为出色的?The Crossover Staff综合美观度、创造性、怀旧等因素,评选出了联盟历史上30件最杰出的球衣。

在NBA历史上,球衣样式变化万千。上世纪70年代,球衣较为宽松,设计沿用ABA时代的独特风格;80年代,随着魔术师约翰逊、拉里·伯德和迈克尔·乔丹等明星球员的出现,NBA人气不断攀升,球衣相较以前却更具传统风格。1989年,Champion成为官方球衣赞助商,助力NBA在90年代开启了最耀眼的时代。有趣的卡通设计让NBA成为了多元文化的温床,篮球和嘻哈文化在此交汇。乔丹的统治正处于巅峰,每个孩子都想模仿他的穿着:长球裤、引领时尚的球鞋,以及公牛队的球衣设计。在21世纪头十年里,联盟中的球衣设计常常追本溯源,向历史致敬,并利用新技术做出些许改进。

如今,耐克成为了NBA官方球衣赞助商。城市版球衣的推出对联盟球衣的样式产生了巨大影响。这种球衣将球队所在城市的特色融入于队服之中——想想Prince以及他和森林狼间的故事、或是The Notorious B.I.G与布鲁克林篮网队之间的联系。

随着球衣热潮的又一次兴起,The Crossover Staff展开了激烈的讨论,评选出了NBA历史上最杰出的30件球衣(全明星球衣不在评选范围之内)。排名综合了球衣的美观度、创造性及怀旧性。这份榜单就像互联网上的其他排名一样,你很可能会不同意我们所有的选择,不过那没有关系。那么让我们开始吧!

30. 明尼苏达森林狼(1996-2008)
最杰出的球衣总会让人联想到一名特定的球员。这句话无疑适用于21世纪初的森林狼球衣。明尼苏达的黑色球衣与上面绿色树木的装饰立刻让人想起了咆哮的凯文·加内特,汗流浃背,试图带着他的球队从西部季后赛的重围中杀出。加内特的比赛和明尼苏达的球衣一样,有棱有角。他们简直是天造地设的一对。

加内特时代球衣的最佳之处融于细节之中。球衣周围的绿树是在向明尼苏达州立大学致敬——为所有不是植物学家的人科普一下,那是一棵挪威松——尖尖的字母“T”和数字的外沿都让人联想到一匹真正的狼。这件球衣不像名单上其他一些球衣那么耀眼,但每一处设计都很有想法,为特定年龄段的NBA球迷带来了额外的怀旧情怀。——Michael Shapiro

29. 洛杉矶湖人(1960-1966)

湖人队向来以紫金配色闻名于世,但是他们在从明尼阿波利斯搬往洛杉矶的前六年里,一直身穿这件漂亮的蓝色队服。草写字体的队标行云流水,球队也在名人堂球员埃尔金·贝勒和杰里·韦斯特的带领下,在搬至洛杉矶的前几年里取得了巨大的成功,在1961年到1966年间从未缺席过NBA总决赛。他们曾在科比时代的一场比赛中复刻过这件球衣,但是很遗憾这件球衣没能更多亮相。在勒布朗为这座城市效力期间,耐克至少需要复刻这件球衣一次。——Jarrel Harris

詹姆斯.jpg

28. 克利夫兰骑士,备用球衣(2005-10)

让我们重温一下过去,好吗?2009年,勒布朗·詹姆斯带领着一支大概以莫·威廉姆斯为二当家的球队,取得了排名联盟第二的66胜战绩。很长一段时间以来,克利夫兰第一次看到了希望的曙光。沿着E-9大道漫步,你第一眼看见的就是这件球衣。生活如此美好。为了紧跟潮流,我父母跑出去给我买了一件2008-2009赛季骑士队23号勒布朗·詹姆斯的备用球衣,让我出去四处走走,展示下对当地球队的自豪。球衣这么好看,这自然不难做到。
这件球衣有太多值得喜爱的地方。尖型领圈,围绕球衣侧边五颜六色的格子,以及中间浓浓的海军蓝色调,上面镶嵌着白色字体、金色镶边的“Cavaliers”。侧面红色的印花让整件球衣看起来与众不同。旁注:他们也意外地为2010年发生的事情做了很好的铺垫。——Kellen Becoats

27. 多伦多猛龙,OVO特别版(本赛季)

虽然球队和说唱歌手之间一直有着一种独特、互利的关系,但Drake与家乡球队猛龙队在赛场上令人难忘的黑金“袭击”,促使两者关系更进了一步。当前时代中以品牌为中心的品牌风格总是会令人有些不快——灵感可以在充满创意之处找寻,还可以挣钱——但不可否认,多伦多OVO版球衣是迄今为止最成功的现象级球衣。胸前的金色徽章和“North”标志,让家乡自豪感更加引人注目,甚至还有一句“请在比赛结束后,带着你的悲伤,尽可能多地拨打热线电话”。不管是好是坏,我们都会记住这件球衣。这次合作可能会创造一个先例:明尼苏达用Purple Rain就很不错,拜托千万别从Soundcloud上找个说唱歌手来替代。——Jeremy Woo

26. 洛杉矶湖人,白色备用球衣(2002-2018)

永远不要试图挑战完美。但奇怪的是,当你闭上你的眼睛,试着想象出一件湖人队球衣时,你会在两款经典球衣间犹豫不决:黑曼巴时代的白色球衣,或是那件在成长过程中不断在Sportscenter的高光时刻中看到的、已经根深蒂固在我们共同记忆中的金色球衣。湖人周日主场的白色球衣在我心中占据着特殊的一席。我不是一名湖人球迷,但是看着科比穿着有史以来最洁净的球衣将防守队员撕碎,总会让我想去古董店淘一件。白色球衣看起来平淡无奇,但为观众留下满心期待——当然,除非你主队来自洛杉矶。湖人队的金色球衣可能是冠军的代名词,但是周日的主场白色球衣永远是联盟中最清新的球衣。而且当这一代最伟大的球员无时无刻不在震撼对手的时候,这也无妨多言了。

Ranking the 30 Best NBA Jerseys of All Time

The Crossover Staff

Which NBA team has the best jerseys of all time? The Crossover staff considered aesthetic, creativity, nostalgia and more when ranking the 30 best uniforms in league history.

NBA uniforms have undergone countless transformations throughout the league's history. The jerseys worn in the 1970s were loose-fitting with unique designs inspired by the ABA era, while the ’80s had more of a traditional look as the league’s popularity evolved with stars like Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan coming into their own. In 1989, Champion became the official uniform supplier and helped kickstart the NBA’s brash era in the ’90s. The cartoonish and fun designs made the NBA a cultural hotbed and a place where basketball and hip-hop intersected. Jordan's reign was at its peak and every kid wanted to emulate the look of his long shorts, stylish sneakers, and the Bulls’ uniform design. In the 2000s, the league went back to its roots, as teams wore uniforms that often paid homage to history, with a few added enhancements, thanks to new technology.

Today, Nike is the official uniform provider and has already made a strong influence on the look of the league's jersey with the introduction of the City Edition uniforms. The approach is to take features of a team’s city and incorporate them into the uniform design—think Prince and his connection with the Timberwolves or the Notorious B.I.G. and the Brooklyn Nets.

With the jersey era back in style, The Crossover staff debated and ranked the 30 best uniforms in NBA history. (All-Star Game uniforms were not considered.) Jerseys were ranked based on aesthetic, creativity, nostalgia and historical importance. Just like with every list on the internet, you will almost certainly disagree with all of our choices. Let's get to the list!

30. MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES (1996–2008)

The best jerseys often conjure an image of a specific player, and that’s certainly true for the Timberwolves’ jerseys of the early 2000s. Minnesota’s black jerseys with the green-tree trim immediately bring to mind a snarling Kevin Garnett, sweating with an unmatched intensity as he tried to carry his supporting cast through the Western Conference playoffs. Garnett’s game matched Minnesota’s jerseys, brooding with a jagged edge. It’s a match made in heaven.

The best aspects of the Garnett-era threads are in the details. The green trees lining the outside of the jersey pay tribute to the Minnesota state tree—the Norway pine for all you non-botanists out there—and the sharp “T” and edges of the numbers are reminiscent of an actual wolf. These jerseys don’t have the same flare as some of the others on our list, but they’re thoughtful throughout and bring an extra dose of nostalgia for NBA fans of a certain age. — Michael Shapiro

29. LOS ANGELES LAKERS (1960–1966)

The Lakers are known for their purple and gold color scheme but after moving from Minneapolis to Los Angeles, the team donned these beautiful blue uniforms for six years. The cursive logo looks great and the team enjoyed plenty of success during their first years in L.A. behind Hall of Famers Elgin Baylor and Jerry West, appearing in the NBA Finals every year from 1961–1966. They brought these uniforms back for one night during the Kobe era, but it’s a shame they haven’t been used more. Nike needs to revive them at least once during LeBron’s time in the city. — Jarrel Harris

28. CLEVELAND CAVALIERS, ALTERNATE (2005–10)

Let’s take a trip back in time, shall we? The year is 2009, LeBron James has just led a team who's second-best player is probably Mo Williams to 66 (!) wins. The sun is shining in Cleveland for the first time in a awhile and the first sight you see walking down E. 9th is these beauties? Life is good. In an attempt to jump on the overloaded bandwagon, my parents went out and copped me a LeBron James, No. 23 Cavs 2008–09 alternate and told me to walk around and show some local team pride, which isn’t hard when the jersey is this sick.

There’s so much to love about this jersey. The sharp neckline, the multi-colored blocks that border the entire jersey and that rich shade of navy blue that’s broken up by the white lettering and the gold trim “Cavaliers” in the middle. Then you get to the red side panels that give the whole joint an incredibly distinctive look. Sidenote: They also made surprisingly good kindling for events that took place in 2010. — Kellen Becoats

27. TORONTO RAPTORS, OVO (PRESENT)

While sports teams and rappers have always had distinct, mutually beneficial style relationships, Drake’s black-and-gold foray onto the actual court with his hometown Raptors memorably took things a step further. The brand-focused brand-ness of our current zeitgeist will always leave somewhat of a bitter taste—inspiration can be found in creative places and still cut checks—but it’s hard to deny how effectively Toronto’s OVO look translated onto the floor as the occasional threads during the franchise’s most successful run to date. The gold chevron and “North” label across the chest made hometown pride that much more attractive and striking, even with a side of “please go stream Hotline Bling after the game as many times as possible with your woes.” For better or worse, we’ll remember these, and they may set a precedent: Minnesota’s Purple Rain strips work fine, just no Soundcloud rapper alternates, please. — Jeremy Woo

26. LOS ANGELES LAKERS, ALTERNATE WHITE (2002–18)

You don’t mess with perfection. Odds are that if you close your eyes and try and picture a Lakers jersey, your mind will wander over to two classics: the Sunday Whites of the Black Mamba era or the gold joints that have been ingrained in our collective memory after watching highlight after highlight on SportsCenter growing up. But the Sunday Whites have a special place in my heart. I never grew up rocking with the Lakers, but you can’t tell me watching Kobe eviscerate people in one of the cleanest jerseys ever assembled doesn’t make you contemplate going out to a vintage store and trying to cop one. White jerseys have a tendency to be bland and leave a lot to be desired—that is, unless your team hails from Los Angeles. The Lakers’ gold jerseys may be synonymous with championships but the Sunday Whites will always be the freshest in the league. And it doesn’t hurt when the greatest player of your generation is rocking them at any given time. — Becoats
