Bucks New 2006-07 Uniforms: Red Speculation
In my previous post, I took the best clues available to Bucks fans and tried to work out what the new Bucks uniforms might look like. Since the talk was that the Bucks were going to go back to "an early 80s" look, I thought that green would dominate the road jerseys, and indeed be the primary color. The latest buzz, however, suggests that red will be the Bucks primary color.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting this rumor, and, the leaked Adidas hat is also predominantly red, suggesting red might indeed be the way they are going to go.
With that in mind, I crafted another batch of potential Bucks uniforms that I call "The Red Option".
As I said in the last post, the strong resemblance the new logo (shown above) has with the old logo leads me to believe the basic uniform set-up will likewise be quite similar to the old, with purple and silver simply being replaced by red and white (plus some minor tinkering with the letter font).
So, the first two uniforms constructed above are basically last year's home and road uniforms with red in the place of purple and white in the place of silver. Plus I adjusted the sides to look more like piping than the solid siding of last year's uniforms.
The third uniform uses green in the place of silver. I call that the 'Christmas tree option'.
If these speculations actually resemble the new uniforms, I'm a little leery. The red look will take getting used to. Its not only visually shocking, it has an unseemly hint of 'Chicago Bulls'.
Thus, I hope they go with the predominantly green look. I think that's a more stylish look and it harkens back to the Bucks championship seasons. But it sounds as though red is the way they're going. Well, the Bucks have donned some of the ugliest uniforms in the history of sports (I'm thinking particularly of those hideous dark green on lime green late 80s things) I guess I'll just adjust myself to this new look if need be.
