Hi! Remember me? I’m a sports design blogger. Sorry for the lack of posts as of late. You can always follow me on Twitter for little tidbits here and there. Onto the news…
The Charlotte Bobcats unveiled new uniforms and a new color scheme today. The new home uniforms say “Cats” instead of “Bobcats,” and orange is now tertiary to a darker navy blue and the added Carolina blue. I’m sure Duke fans love that. The color scheme is a big improvement, though. Their old blue was too dull, and downplaying the orange is a good move.
As for the uniforms, I generally like pinstripes, but I never did like the Bobcats’. Ditching those was an improvement. Since the name “Bobcats” is unique, I prefer that on the uniforms over just “Cats,” but the short name allows it to be nice and big. It sounds like most Charlotte fans are hoping the New Orleans Hornets change names, leaving Hornets open for Charlotte to reclaim.
Overall, they’re nothing too exciting, but they’re clean and they look nice, which is definitely an improvement. What do you think?
