I hope you guys do not get too mean spirited with what I am going to say.

Being that your team has a new outlook with the trade and all, could you see a new logo, uniform design and colors for the Clippers?

The Lakers have a look that is synonymous with winning but the Clippers for the most part have a look that people equate to losing.

I realize that with the new outlook and with winning that can change but at the same time the Clippers have looked the same for a great many years.

Would it not be advantageous to come up with a look that would be market friendly beyond what they have?

I would keep the colors similar but maybe make a slight color change.

The logo is very vanilla and could be made to stand out more.

Uniforms could go through a change in appearance.

These are merely suggestions and in no way are meant to offend anyone who has been a long standing Clippers fan. All y'all would know best since you have been fans of the team for a long time.

Chalk it up as one outsiders idea and nothing more. Smile

I love our logo and wouldn't change it ever! I do, however, hate the white jersey - too much blue and white and very little red!

Are you aware that we just changed our logo and uniforms, just last season? I take it this is the first time following, or acknowledging the Clippers?

Funny, to me it's synonymous with vomit.

I'd definitely keep the colors...but I'm open to slight design tweaks.

No more white jerseys!!! bring back the blue jersey... and let red be away... The lakers only use white on sundays. why not us?

Blue should be our home jersey and red our away jersey....

I love the design of our jerseys.... it's super sick...

Love everything about our jerseys. I don't approve of changing the home whites to blue; it would be very confusing when we play Minnesota, Magic, ect.

I'm actually not a fan of our road reds, felt like the design could've been done better.

I understand most fans on here are attached to the current logo designs, but from a PR and brand development standpoint, there is legitimate reason for changing the logo and graphics to shed away the losing culture of the old Clippers; "re-branding" in other words. Someone is going to pitch this to management at some point down the road, not sure if DTS will do it, but as much as loyal fans on here will hate it, the corporate side of the franchise may decide to pull the trigger on this.

Again, a definitive maybe, don't start flaming me, this is how businesses function at times.

Not much of a change in my opinion.

The Lakers uni's and colors stand out twice as much as the so called changes that brought about the current look your Clippers have. Not being a smart ass or being confrontational, just stating an opinion.

By the way I hate the Lakers. I just hate that their image stands out more and is more market friendly than that of the Clippers.

How does the logo the team currently uses remind one of a Clipper?

The look your team has now is too connected to the past and really is not showing the changing of the guard and a new era with the Clippers imo.

The red looks okay but I am thinking brighter colors would resonate more with the paying consumer.

To me when a team has a losing image and they make a change it should be something more drastic than the simple and mundane. I respect your opinions though. It is just that as an outsider I can see the team creating a bigger buzz with more than just adding legit players.

The Lakers have colors that stand out and scream at you. Their jerseys do not simply sell because of how good the Lakers have been. They look good. I am simply voicing an opinion from the outside and do not consider myself an expert. Just a little food for thought I am giving you.

How about the team using the state colors? Just a suggestion.

That color concept is simply my idea of real change but it is simply mine. I will root for your Clippers if they wear **** brown and have a turd for a logo. Just bringing up some ideas.

Repped High Quality Post

^ We'll fix our image by scoring more points than our opponents on the basketball court, not by trying to turn heads on some catwalk with flashy colored unis.

This isn't soccer where they change unforms (kits) every year.

I seriously hate the white one - it has almost no red in it! I guess they'll change them next year, after we get the rings!

Clipper Darrell's BMW would need a new paint job, plus he'd have to get a new wardrobe.

So, no thanks.

Okay, the logo could be "steamlined" a bit, I'll buy that. But the unis? For me, this version is awesome. I'd like a bit more of the LA script road blues, but this latest version is by far the best. After all these years I don't want to see any major changes. I want to see the associative dynamic shift organically, so to speak; rather than simply applying a new label and changing the name of the product.

These are the "new" Clippers, but they are still "the" Clippers. Can't forget that or run from the history tied to that fact.

The Lakers unis stand out because they're horrible. Purple? Barney Purple? C'mon, even my avid Laker fan brother doesn't sport anything Lakers. The Lakers Uniforms haven't changed much either except for that "swap meet" Lakers logo. I can create a better logo than that. Just say'n.

The Lakers jersey is classic, in part because it's associated with prolific success. To me, the purple road unis are just ok...but I don't know that I've ever seen a better look than the post-"swap-meet" Lakers home unis of the late 80's to late 90's. The tighter Lakers script with shadowed numbering? That jersey was awesome - fact!

Just for the heck of it, I did a google search on color symbolism... very interesting...

Red: Excitement, energy, passion, love, desire, speed, strength, power, heat, aggression, danger, fire, blood, war, violence, all things intense and passionate.

Blue: Peace, tranquility, cold, calm, stability, harmony, unity, trust, truth, confidence, conservatism, security, cleanliness, order, loyalty, sky, water, technology, depression, appetite suppressant.

Purple: Royalty, nobility, spirituality, ceremony, mysterious, transformation, wisdom, enlightenment, cruelty, arrogance, mourning.

Yellow: Joy, happiness, betrayal, optimism, idealism, imagination, hope, sunshine, summer, gold, philosophy, dishonesty, cowardice, jealousy, covetousness, deceit, illness, hazard and friendship.

I'll take our colors any day!

Ive always thought it would be cool to go back to the SD clippers colors, with a powder blue and rusty red/orange. Im a chargers fan too so the idea of having a powder blue uni for both of my favorite teams just gets me giddy! Hahaha

Don't agree. Warriors have the worst jersey in the NBA by far. Lakers are the second worst. Then comes the Wizards.

PHX, Mia, OKC, Orl, Mem, Char, Mil,Hou, all have worse unis.

Lakers are classic. It works. I like Golden State's as well
