Ranking the Top 5 Uniforms in Los Angeles Clippers History

The Los Angeles Clippers franchise doesn’t have a history of winning in bunches, but in terms of uniforms, their tradition is as rich as it gets.

The Clips have won many times in the looks department, and part of the intrigue in their success lies in the fact that they’ve had two substantial relocations to San Diego from Buffalo in 1978 and from San Diego to Los Angeles in 1984. 

As for the criteria, the goal is to look at the five best looking outfits. One thing to note is that these have nothing to do with the success of the team that wore them, though there’s plenty of background info for context alone.

Which jerseys belong in the all-time top 5 in franchise history? Let’s take a look, starting where it all began.

Arizona Wildcats Reveal Sharp New Basketball Uniforms

The Arizona Wildcats are going to have quite a few new uniforms to choose from when they take the court this upcoming season.

Nike has hooked the Wildcats up with five new sets of uniforms.

The two white uniforms will be used at home, and the blue uniform and the red uniform will be worn on the road. The gray uniform will reportedly be used for both home and away games.

More pictures can be seen on the official Twitter account of Arizona basketball.

The “new” look may look a bit familiar to Wildcats fans. The design honors one of the best eras of Arizona basketball, via ArizonaWildcats.com:

The side paneling and trim of the new uniforms pay tribute to the uniforms the Wildcats wore for roughly a decade beginning in the mid-1990’s, a period that cemented Arizona’s place among the nation’s elite college basketball programs.

During that era, Arizona won a national championship (1997) and was the national runner-up (2001) once.

The new uniforms will also reportedly have a cactus-based aerographic that will cover the entire back. However, the back of the uniforms have yet to be revealed.

It’s a familiar look for the Wildcats, but it is a bit more modern.

Charlotte Hornets Unveil New Modern Uniforms for 2014-15 Season

The Charlotte Hornets are back, but they will have a slightly different look this time around.

Since the New Orleans franchise decided to switch its nickname to the “Pelicans,” the return of the Hornets name to Charlotte has been highly anticipated. The name made its official return to the NBA at the 2014 NBA draft lottery in May.

Back in December, Charlotte unveiled a couple of edgy logos. The logos confirmed that the teal and purple, along with Hugo T. Hornet, would return. 

The organization has now unveiled what the team’s uniforms will look like. The pinstripes are gone, and the team has gone with a more modern look.

ESPN.com’s Darren Rovell tweeted out a more detailed look at Charlotte’s three new uniforms:

Here’s a look back at the old Charlotte Hornets gear: 

How do the new uniforms grade out?

Nebraska Basketball Team to Wear Throwback Uniforms to Celebrate 1911-12 Team

The Nebraska Cornhuskers have decided to break out throwback uniforms for Saturday’s Legends Weekend game against the Northwestern Wildcats.

Adidas has come up with a uniform to pay tribute to the 1911-12 Cornhusker team that won the school’s first conference title, back when Nebraska was part of the Missouri Valley Conference. The 1911-12 team went 14-1 overall and 8-0 in the conference under the coaching of E.O. “Jumbo” Stiehm.

Huskers.com shared the details of the uniform:

The jerseys, specially created by adidas for Saturday’s game, are inspired by the 1911-12 team and feature cream colored tops and bottoms with a White accent stripe with an N logo across the middle of the jersey tops. One major difference in the jerseys is that the 1911-12 Husker jerseys did not have jersey numbers, so the number on Saturday’s throwbacks are below the stripe as well as on the back of the jersey.

Here’s a look at Nebraska’s throwback uniforms:

The stripe across the jersey is easier to see in a closer look:

For those who love the modern uniform designs, these won’t do much for you.
