Traversing The Globe For The 15 Worst Basketball Jerseys Of All Time
It's a good thing this team (in this location, at least) and these jerseys didn't last too long. Guys like Bryant Reeves didn't do them any favors, but they were inherently ugly, regardless.
9. Toronto Raptors, 1999
Back when Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady were not only teammates, but also excellent athletes with the ability to jump over anyone in the building, they had the misfortune of wearing these uniforms. The multi-colored "raptor-scratch" pinstripes, the awesomely bad cartoon raptor, and the spikes on the name tapes make these awful in so many ways, it's actually impressive.
8. Houston Rockets, 1995-2003
The Round Mound of Rebound makes another appearance, this time with the Rockets. Pinstripes work for the Yankees, but for the Rockets, it was a very bad idea. Simply turrible, really.
7. Utah Jazz, Mountains Edition
Purple jerseys never turn out well. Throw in some mountains, not only on the jerseys but also on the shorts, and it goes downhill from there, no pun intended.
6. Detroit Pistons, 1996-2000
It's obviously a bit unappealing to throw a picture of a piston on a jersey. So the Pistons, in their infinite wisdom, put a horse on their jerseys. I'll avoid the corny horsepower pun. To top it off, they made the jerseys and obnoxious teal color, to make sure that no one would ever want to wear it. Let's put "DP" on the shorts, too. We'll pretend it stands for "Detroit Pistons", but I think we all know... never mind.
