Madness in the NBA

Now that the NBA has gotten into full swing, the Association decided to start getting a little wild in the uniform department, and it all began with the premier franchise for the last season and a half, the Miami Heat.

As I blogged about before, the Heat went with a plain-and-simple black and white look against the Lakers. They also went for that look against the Bulls on Sunday afternoon.

Then the Heat kept up the uniform changes with this crazy Miami Floridians throwback that seemed better suited for the set of Miami Vice rather than a basketball court.

But the topper came on Thursday night when the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies took things to a whole new level with some astonishing ABA throwbacks.

While the Clippers looked pretty good in baby blue and red as the Los Angeles Stars, the Grizzlies were a completely different story.

Even the Brazilian national soccer team (who might have a reason) has enough sense to not use green and yellow as their uniform combination, but apparently the Memphis Tams decided this would be a good look. They were very, very wrong.

But hey, at least it gave the sports world a reason to talk about uniforms for a bit,and for that I thank you.
