Kings’ Uniforms Named Worst In Pro Sports By ‘Uni Watch’

By | 0 Comments | Feb 20, 2019

Uni Watch, a pretty valuable site written by Paul Lukas, ranked the uniforms of all 122 NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL teams for ESPN, and the Sacramento Kings landed at … No. 122. (There is some discussion in this FanShot.) Here's what Lukas says:

This is absurd. There are plenty worse uniforms in the NBA alone: the Bobcats' scheme is without any redeeming quality, the Mavericks' and Thunder's typeface and colors are beyond non-descript and the Warriors have been a stylistic abomination since leaving San Francisco. The off-center number issue is bizarre if only because that used to be a very popular trope back in the '70s — is it bad because it is different? And the script on the black unis last year wasn't incongruous: it was a nod to the Kings' older jerseys with an updated color scheme! The Kings are being penalized for thinking outside the box on uniforms. So I guess we should all just wear boring blue jerseys with boring sans serif fonts and maybe some pinstripes lest we offend touchy sensibilities about what makes sartorial sense.

I don't think the Kings have the best jerseys, and I'm still haunted by the cat vomit gold jerseys of a few years ago. But this is a bit absurd. Would anyone in Charlotte really not go back in time and swap their scheme for that of the Kings?
