Getting this wrong wouldn't kill us, but hitting a home run on this redesign would attract so much attention, merchandising revenue, and even fans that it would be a shame to blow it (as we have with every redesign of the last 25 years). I love how the Hornets pulled off something that is both fresh and modern, while also signaling a connection to their past. That is what we need to do here.
The problem is that the Hornets uniforms back in the old Charlotte days were cool back then, while the Bucks uniforms have never been cool, ever.
The Bucks' history is not overflowing with trophies and retro awesomeness, but there is enough to work with design wise to lift some font and color (off of old jerseys or patterns form the old Mecca floor). My point is, if Charlotte would have simply gone to a slight reworking of the Larry Johnson teal uniforms time has passed that by. It would have screamed 1994. But the pulled off something new, with a tiny nod to the past, and it works great. I'm no designer, but I see some uniqueness in the old "irish rainbow" side bars that remind me a little of what Marquette does on the sides of their jerseys. It would be possible to incorporate something like that in our redesign, as a subtle nod, kind of a Milwaukee thing.
There are lots of places they could go with this. I think we all just want something fresh and different, yet classic enough not to need to be redone in 4 years.
