I am a huge uniform geek. As much as I love keeping it traditional for programs like USC and Alabama in college football, and the Celtics in the NBA. It brings me great pleasure when a team with nothing to lose breaks out some new unis. Oregon, the Sacramento Kings, doesn’t matter the sport, the league, or the level of competition. New logos and unis get my blood flowing. Call me a dork, call me what you will, but it works for me.
Now, this new Kings logo is amazing. It’s clean, it’s sleek, and if the rumors are true (UPDATE: they’re not) , the Kings are returning to their colors from the old Rochester Royals days. This is something that the Kings desperately need. Gone are the days of Vlade Divac, Mike Bibby, and the Kings – Lakers rivalries of old. What we have now is a steaming pile of shit festering in the Central Valley. The city is barely hanging on to their team, and they need all the help they can get.
Anyway, keep an eye out, there will be plenty more uni talk to come as we inch painstakingly closer to CFB season.
