Since the lockout is a downer, it seems like the time is right for a lighthearted topic.
That said, here's a topic: What's everyone's favorite and least favorite NBA jerseys?
My favorite current jerseys are the blue alternates worn by the Los Angeles Clippers.
My least favorite current jerseys are in a tie. It's between the orange alternates worn by the Phoenix Suns and the yellow alternates worn by the New Orleans Hornets.
The Suns should stick to purple, while the Hornets should stick to creole blue.
My favorite jerseys in history — aside from the Seattle SuperSonics old green and gold look from my youth — are the silver alternates worn by the early-2000s New Jersey Nets or the expansion era road uniforms worn by the Orlando Magic. It's a toss-up.
My least favorite jerseys in history are the expansion era road uniforms worn by the Toronto Raptors.
As y'all can see, I have a thing for alternates. Guess I just plain fancy them. Alternates aside, though, my favorite current jerseys are the Dallas Mavericks road uniforms -- as those have got a clean, crisp look -- while my least favorite current jerseys are the Washington Wizards recently unveiled uniforms, which don't fit the modern style.
