Chris Ryan of Grantland.com shows some love to the Portland Trail Blazers' "Rip City" jerseys.
These, with all due respect to the deeply serious basketball played last night, were the best thing that happened in the NBA in the last 24 hours. Love the font, love the using of the nickname. I know it's not the first time Portland's trotted these out, but they're very fresh. I'd like to see some other city-nickname-on-the-jersey looks. Or maybe just some weird phrases! How about the Thunder wearing jerseys that say "GHOST HOTEL" or the Hawks rocking ones that said "THE A"? Any other ideas? Comments, people.
Thanks to KVin2 in the FanShots.
