I’m unsure if it was intended or not, but the new Oklahoma City Thunder alternate uniforms were leaked on the Internet this week.
These alternates are very aesthetically pleasing to the eyes, are simple in nature and have a retro feel to them. The jerseys feature two colors: solid blue making up the majority of the tops and bottoms and small white piping that make the jerseys pop out.
The tops feature the player’s number off center and placed to the right just below the NBA logo. The team name, “Thunder” is written pointing downward in block letters on the left hand side of the uniform and is outlined in the white piping. On the backside, the player’s name is centered at the top just below the neck region and the numbers are centered slightly below the name.
The shorts have “OKC” running down the right thigh and the Thunder logo is in a blue and white alternate form running down the left thigh. Slightly below the trunk line of the shorts are what appear to be the words, “Oklahoma City.” The NBA logo is placed just below the player’s right hip bone on the bottoms.
Unfortunately for the Thunder and 2K Sports, the team name, “Thunder” is misspelled as “Thudner” on the front of the jersey. Despite the mishap on the tops, this uniform is very cool and will look great in real life whenever Oklahoma City decides to break these out this season. Less is more in this case, and I love it.
