Don’t worry Dallas fans, the Mavericks haven’t changed their franchise’s team name to the “Cats.” The Charlotte Bobcats have simply unveiled new uniforms for the 2012-2013 season that look extremely similar to the ones Dirk Nowitzki and company wear. With a new head coach, color scheme, uniform design, and logo, the Bobcats are clearly looking to start fresh next year. The sad part is — as The Basketball Jones pointed out via Chris Creamer’s sports logos website — this is the fourth time Charlotte has changed its look in only eight years as a franchise. Maybe the uniform isn’t the problem?
Personally, I would have stuck with the short-lived jerseys that the Bobcats had last season. Even though they are a new franchise that has yet to establish any kind of identity, I liked how the pinstripe look gave them somewhat of a nostalgic appearance. Call me old fashioned. In any event, they are certainly easier to look at than the other basketball uniform that was debuted as a possibility earlier this week. Here are some more pictures courtesy of NBA.com.
