    There was a period when ownership would not let the Chargers wear powder blues because that was the old ownership!

    So much time has passed it's time to bring those old style uniforms back.

    The Valley uniform looks like something that would last two years.

    Change is not necessarily good. Good Change is good.

    Just like the saying, Practice does not make perfect.

    Perfect practice makes perfect.

    A few years back they had Caron Butler as part of their new jersey reveal with Bledsoe and someone else. I want to say it was after the season where Goran and IT were shipped off. Of course Butler never played a game here.

    Edit: That was during the unveil in the 2013 offseason, which was right after trading for Bledsoe. They had Bledsoe, Caron Butler, Alex Len, and PJ Tucker at the reveal showing off the uniforms. I can understand Bledsoe and Len, with Bledsoe being a big acquistition that offseason and Len being a high lottery pick but Butler, a veteran at the end of his career who didn't fit in the teams plans going forward, and Tucker, a journeyman who was finding his way back to the NBA, isn't an exciting group that would sell people on the Suns going forward.

    so, does Sarver just have atrocious taste in hiring these designers over the years or is he too cheap to pay for a good one? ALL of these uniforms have just been atrocious over the years.

    It’s also too much change. We seem to cycle through different styles all the time. I prefer when it was home/away/alternate black.

    I guess the problem is thematically the shirts are The Valley, but show a Cityscape! We are the Valley of the Sun, and the team of the Suns, so why not a Sun and the words The Valley?

    Can't wait to see the matching shorts!!!!

    That video includes my favorite shot, going off shoulder turn, 3/4's court fading out of bounds, swish!

    I thought city initially. But then reviewed and thought, maybe those are pixelated mountains?
