Hi guys, i want ask you something: is this the right year to change our jersey?

I think that after 11 season it's time to change, i like so much our jersey, but guys ... 11 season with the same ... we MUST change.

Almost every year some team change something, you know if we will make the same this summer?

I have an authentic home jersey of Corey, i think it's beautiful, but we must change, i hope in a new style, the colors are perfect, but restyle is necessary, remember the 1st year of kandiman, we were dressed the old jersey, and the year later we had changed.

I hope we will do the same thing.

I'm sorry for the english, i'm from italy (i'm sonnie maybe you remember, but i've changed sonnie with sr91) and i don't know really good the language.

sonnie, your english is much better than my italian. it's probably better than half the users of this site, but that's beside the point...

i agree that it's time for a change. people say the jerseys are classic, that they're traditional maybe...teams like the lakers and celtics can get away with keeping their jerseys for those reasons because their history is winning. when you're historically good, you want to keep the same jerseys because of the tradition. same reason for boston's parquet floor. it's about soaking in that history, that tradition of winning.

that being said, look at the teams who have changed recently: the timberwolves, grizzlies, hawks a few years ago, bucks...all bad teams. they change often because it is part of the mentality of trying to bring a change to the organization. same way the cavs and rockets completely redid their jerseys, team colors, etc when lebron and yao were drafted.

and through all of this, the king of bad teams never wants to change. we've kept our same unis and colors all these years, and i think it's added to our losing image. i'm still not sure if i'd like this, but changing the team name back to the braves along with changing the colors would completely change the way we are perceived. the running clipper jokes would die down, because the name wouldnt exist anymore. kindof like how the devil rays are now the rays.

No worries, Sonny....we understand you just fine. I don't know, I love the the colors and the font style. I have several Clips jersey but my favorite is the red one. If they make another alternate, I have no problem with it just as long as they keep the red ones. Very Happy

I wouldn't mind them using the blue jerseys more often as for a complete overhaul I'll only accept it if it's good if it looks terrible it's dunleavys fault

The red away jersey's are just AWFUL IMO.

If anything we should just stick with the blue and white jerseys.

i think an upgrade, not a change is required.

like the Laker jersery has been the same but they tweek it a little to give it a modern look.

^Those have always been my favorite alternate jerseys...along with the black/white/red '83 jerseys. I like our current jerseys but I think they need a more modern modification or something. Nothing drastic but a subtle change would be nice. And also they should just burn the blue alternate jerseys IMO

jerseys are fine as they are! the blue ones should be worn more and have the red ones become the alternative

also should wear a 4th alternative which should be the classic SD jerseys with the flags

maybe a new alternative logo in the middle of the floor like a Clipper ship with a LAC symbol on the sail Smile

Keep the jerseys but please wear throwbacks like once a year! Thats all I'm asking for! Thats another plus of LeBron- I'm pretty sure he is one of the reasons the Cavs wear so many throwbacks.

I can't decide which would be better......changing our jerseys and going for a new look and mentality because we are percieved (rightfully so) as the traditional joke of the league, or turning it around and growing a playoff team year in and year out in those very same jerseys......

no because if this team ever becomes a winning team it should still wear the original colors they first did it in... 05-06

keep the colors till 2012..we are all dead anyways Smile

If you look back, the Clippers' current uniforms are actually a modification of the previous set, which was so desperately needed.

The uniforms from 1990 to 2000

2000 to present

By the way, this is the 10th season we've had the current set; we changed the uniforms in 2000-01 season, the second year at Staples Center.

Ciao Sonny,

Per un attimo, credevo che stavi dicendo che si doveva scambiar tutta la squadra con quell' orripilante squadra che chiama New Jersey, casa!

Not my fault, but I'm sorry nonetheless. Anywho...here's the link you can actually see the jerseys:

The Clippers should give Lebron partial ownership of the team, allow Nike to re-design the logo and jerseys, and possibly re-name the team. There's no reason Lebron should have to worry about the poor history of the Clippers as he will be creating his own history with a brand new team.
