It’s February, Jonesers. In the NBA that means Hardwood Classics Month, a tradition as storied and celebrated as National Bird-Feeding Month. And while you might not be nursing juncos in your backyard, if you’re watching basketball you’ll see a few teams sporting retro jerseys. The first we’ve seen — both of which debuted over the weekend — are the Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks.
The Warriors’ jerseys honor their 1974-75 NBA championship and are very, very yellow. The Bucks’ jerseys honor their 1970-71 NBA championship and are very, very white. They’re both nice looking uniforms, for sure. But which is better?
If you ask me — and, I’m guessing, most people — I’ll choosing the Warriors. The yellow is awesome, the design is super cool and extra bright unis like those look great in HD. An easy choice, even though I prefer their throwbacks from last year. The Bucks’ are nice, and the OG deer head is excellent, but these are quite similar to the uniforms Milwaukee usually wears. They’re good, but the yellow Golden State look is tops.
A couple big shots of the uniforms after the jump. Let’s hear what you think.
