ESPN redesigns Cavaliers jerseys

The Cavaliers have had a lot of big changes this offseason. They have added LeBron James, coach David Blatt, and maybe soon Kevin Love. So should the Cavs change their look on the court too? Cleveland made changes to their jerseys and added a new logo in 2010 after LeBron left for Miami. ESPN had fans send in their ideas of what the Cavs should do to upgrade their look on the court. All of these fan jersey ideas are courtesy of ESPN’s Uni Watch.

There are a lot of cool looking jerseys! I like the first set of the jerseys the most. What is your favorite and what would you recommend the Cavs do with their look?

  • The only ones I like out of that bunch are the reboot of the 90’s swoosh jerseys in the new colors. Burn the rest.

  • So many awful designs. These should pretty much all be burned.

  • humboldt

    Please make them go away

  • Ferhan Saleem

    Hell noooooo!!!!

  • humboldt

    The logo and look of that era was soulless and corporate. I’d prefer it to stay forever sealed in the late ’90s

  • dwhit110

    I actually quite liked the second set titled “Redesign of Current Jerseys”

    I wanted to like the skyline ones, but there’s something really kitschy feeling about those designs. Might be better as a one-time alternate sorta thing.

  • TNB

    Those skyline jerseys are actually pretty cool. I’d buy a jersey with the Cleveland skyline on it

  • I’d settle for the uniforms they have currently with the colors changed back to electric blue and orange. I can’t figure out why they seemed to be obsessed with USC mustard and ketchup.

    edit: and get rid of that god awful fish hook C…..

  • The_Real_Shamrock

    Those are the only ones I kinda liked.

    Agree wholeheartedly. The current uniforms are garish – remind me of the McDonald’s color scheme, and they have no real character.

    Question: Is it easier to change jerseys in the NBA than the NFL? Could it conceivably happen within the next 3 months?

  • TomWFNY

    Every time I look at the skyline jerseys, my opinion on them flips.

  • mgbode

    I agree. The only ones I like are the white skyline jersey (black ones are hideous). It wouldn’t be bad as an alternate (and, as an out-of-town fan, one that I would consider buying partially because of the skyline).

    Definitely not as an everyday uniform though and all the rest are horrific.

  • Christian

    I’m sick of things using the CLE Skyline as a representation of the city. Every city in the world has a skyline, why not something more unique that represents the city better. It’s lazy.

  • mgbode

    along with the alternate coming back too

  • mgbode

    cover up the black ones and just look at the white version to see if that helps.

  • RGB

    The white one is sharp.

  • King Me

    Lukas was talking about this earlier. Typically the design process takes around 18 months from start to court-ready. Next year is likely the earliest we see a new kit.

  • Backwoods

    Great minds… I was about to post that same picture.

  • These are all so horrible that they actually hurt my eyes. The uniforms we have now are the best they’ve ever had, and what could become our version of the classic Celtics, Lakers, and Pistons looks. They’re timeless and functional. Plus, they’re only using the wine and gold (and, of course, white). Leave them the way they are, for goodness’ sakes.

  • Ezzie Goldish

    A few good, a lot of terrible, but one main theme that is clear: Wine & Gold is better than any other color combo, even as it’s nice to wear the 80s-style blue and orange as alternates here and there.

    The skyline ones alternate between cool and oh so terrible depending on the minute, with the lower ones that look like a championship wrestling belt kind of being the most fun.

  • woofersus

    I like the logo, font, and block colors of the skyline uni’s, but I don’t like the actual use of the skyline or the sunburst behind it.

  • Harv 21

    Photoshop Wiggins’s head on that and you wouldn’t be able to tell the diff. Uh, if you lowered the shorts a little too.

  • Harv 21

    skyline ones are just hideous.

  • C_CLE

    I like the detailed ones…especially the other two colors. The white ones are a little plain but the wine and navy are sweet. I like the asymmetry.

  • C_CLE
  • mgbode

    I think you meant lengthened 😉

  • Said it before, saying it again: I’m forever partial to the orange & blue. Give me these:




  • Skyline

    I’m not a huge sports fan, but I do love my city. If they use the design for the first set (with the skyline) I would absolutely buy a jersey.

  • saggy

    the ones on the bottom right are so bad they’re amazing. seriously, they’ve gone to plaid.

    I like the sleeved shirts. Very Euro.

    how so ?
