New logo:
(image removed)

New home jersey (not much complete yet):
(image removed)

from NBA.com: The Memphis Grizzlies new home uniform is white, with Smoke Blue, Memphis Midnight Blue, Beale Street Blue and Grizzlies Gold trim, with the word “Grizzlies” emblazoned across the front and the Grizzlies’ logo on the lower left leg of the shorts. The Grizzlies’ new road uniform has a base color of Memphis Midnight Blue, with Smoke Blue and Grizzlies Gold Trim, with the word “Memphis” emblazoned across the front and the Grizzlies’ logo on the lower left leg of the shorts.

Guess I'll update when we see the complete jersey.

I like the colors so far, but I'm not quite sold on the logo just yet.

Undead Zombie bear is just not that cool. Maybe if the road uni's had him wearing shades and smokin' a cigar it'd be cooler.

And maybe a third jersey with Undead Zombie Bear wearing a tophat and a bowtie! AWESOME!

Could anyone object to a three-way nickname swap between Utah-New Orleans-Memphis? New Orleans Jazz (like the old days), Memphis Hornets and Utah Grizzlies all sound a lot more apt.

I like them - the road jerseys aren't that bad, although there's a definate element of the old Toronto Blue Jays lettering on the unis. Of course, I kind of liked that sort of thing.

And while we're proposing name-swaps, can we throw hockey in there, and see if Memphis can steal the Blues from St. Louis? (Heck, St. Louis Hornets makes as much sense as Memphis Hornets, although it doesn't sound as good.)

The difference here is that St. Louis at least has some business with the nickname "Blues," unlike Utah and that Mormon jazz. Not that Memphis wouldn't necessarily have more of a claim, but you'd have a fight on your hands to tear it away from Mound City.

Although...throw in the Titans for the Rams and we'll call it a deal. "St. Louis Titans"...I like the sound of that.

Jeez, I hate the new uniforms. Just when I was starting to lose my love for the Knicks and latch onto the Grizz, they have to go and switch from a truely cool logo, to one that looks like it was drawn in Sunday School.

The colors arent bad, I wish they would have just kept the logo and the theme of the older uniforms.

Of course, moving into a new building means needing cash. So, new uniforms and merchendise is needed.

Interesting that they're keeping the trademark Grizzlies basketball claw on the back of the jersey. I like that, actually.

Yeah, the Grizzlies jerseys may look a little strange... but need I remind you of how fugly they were during the Grizzlies' inaugural season? Hell... I actually caught the Grizzlies' first trip to Indianapolis (live), and man.

The Grizzlies players were practically invisible, because people's brains didn't permit them to actually see the uniforms lest they go insane or something. Yeah, I know I'm exaggerating slightly... but there are simply no words to describe the fashion designer's nightmare that was the original Grizzlies road uniform.

Say what you will about the new logo, but at least it doesn't look like it was drawn through MS Paint (see Lightning, Tampa Bay).

But "Tennessee Titans" has a MUCH nicer ring to it ... :)

Actually, Kawshen, the other Vancouver Grizzlies road uniforms... what were they, shoot... light green? Bright purple? something... were the ones I was referring to. Clearly I can't remember because my brain is preventing me from remembering for my own protection.

I was all about to say how nice the uniforms were, but the Gold triangle with the undead bear KILLS the outfit for me. It really looks odd and takes away from the rest of the uniform. But like some said, it had to be done so...whatever. As much as I enjoyed watching them, they overachieved last year and I don't hold out much hope for them this year (unless they get Kobe or Shaq).

Speaking of name swaps...
Wouldn't it be nice if Detroit and Buffalo hockey teams swapped names? You'd have the Detroit Sabres and the Buffalo Red Wings.

I think New York's football team should swap names with the San Fransico baseball team. Imagine the NEW YORK GIANTS! and the San Fran Giants! THAT would be cool!

The new logo looks too much like Minnesota's timberwolf for me. And the uniforms kinda look like Dallas's style. But they arent so bad. Now, if the NETS could get new uniforms next. The home uniform looks so craptacular. Its a shame, because the road uniforms for the Nets are nice, but the home uniforms are so awful.

Also, if you wanna talk about worst uniforms ever. Take a look at the Sixers unfiroms from the mid 90's. The Shawn Bradley era uniforms. Now, THOSE were the absolute worst uniforms I have ever seen.

Wow. Those Sixers ones ARE brutal. Almost forgotten about them. But the Grizz aren't ripping off Dallas's color scheme. They're lifting Utah's.
