The Friday Five: My 5 Least Favourite NBA Jerseys

The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! This is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

Since I’ve previously put my taste in uniforms out there for everyone’s consideration with my 5 Favourite NBA Jerseys, I figured it only makes sense that I also mention the designs that rank among my least favourite. After all, why embarrass myself and expose my lack of design and fashion sense by only talking about the jerseys that I do like, when I can go for broke by criticising a beloved throwback or alternate?

Once again, this is all subjective and in no way intended to be a definitive list of the worst jerseys in NBA history. These are just five jerseys that I’ve never particularly cared for, so by all means feel free to disagree and tell me about the jerseys that you can’t stand in the comments section below. Having said that, here are my 5 Least Favourite NBA Jerseys.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #84

NLSC Podcast Logo

Join Arcane, JaoSming and myself for Episode #84 of the NLSC Podcast, in which we discuss the latest NBA Live 15 news, a rumour that’s making the rounds, RED MC news, the 2014 NBA Draft, and a few other topics we felt like chatting about this week.

  • We open this week’s episode with the latest details on RED MC. The .iff editing functionality has some teething problems, but awesome stuff is on the way.
  • Before we started recording, some new screenshots of NBA Live 15 were released, once again spotlighting the graphical improvements in this year’s game.
  • We’ll be hearing more about NBA Live 15’s gameplay come August, but in the meantime, we talk about a rumour that began circulating earlier in the day.
  • Arcane finally has the full version of NBA Live 14! As such, he provides some initial impressions of the complete game.
  • A reminder that if you want to get your hands on a free copy of NBA Live 14, be sure to enter our giveaway before July 1st!
  • Some NBA 2K15 news will be coming this Friday. We certainly hope that it will be substantial, and not an announcement of an announcement, nor more NBA 2K14 footage.
  • Will we ever see college basketball and football games from EA again? EA is definitely interested in developing them, should all legal barriers be cleared.
  • We give our thoughts on the Charlotte Hornets’ new uniforms. Hooray for no sleeved alternates!
  • LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony have opted out of their contracts, while Tim Duncan will return for one more year. We react and speculate.
  • Trade talks that would have sent Kevin Love to Golden State have fallen apart. Where do we currently think that he, and other big names, will ultimately end up?
  • We make some final predictions before the 2014 NBA Draft, and JaoSming provides a fun piece of trivia to close the show on.

Click Play to listen to the show!

As always, we welcome your thoughts on this week’s show, as well as any of the topics that we discussed. Have your say in the comments below, or here in the Forum! Mailbag submissions and topic suggestions are also welcome, so feel free to hit us up in this thread.

A Deeper Look at the Graphical Improvements in NBA Live 15

NBA Live 15 - Stadium Background

EA Sports has released a new preview article on the graphical updates we can expect in NBA Live 15, and it looks amazing.

EA showed off screenshots and a quick video comparing NBA Live 14’s graphics to what we can expect in NBA Live 15. The quality definitely seems to match what we saw from the player face scans earlier in the month.

The Tuesday Triple: My Basketball Gaming Pipe Dreams

The Tuesday Triple

This is The Tuesday Triple, where I attempt to break down random topics into three points, and maybe an “and one” if I need it. Similar to the established Friday Five by Andrew, the topics will be related to basketball video games and their communities as a whole.

I have been active in the NLSC community for almost 9 years now and there are still these unattainable pipe dreams that I have and simply cannot let go of. I have made Street mods for damn near every PC basketball game since NBA Live 2005, I did my best to help to narrow the modding ability gap with all the tutorials I have done over the years, and I have gotten to assist great tool makers like Leftos and Vlad create the modding tools we use today. I have done a lot, but there are at least three ideas I have that I know will just never happen for me.

Dumb Mondays: Three Idiots Play Tag

Dumb Mondays

This is Dumb Mondays, starting the workweek off with silly facts or some of my opinions and predictions that you may or may not find interesting. This week I am sharing the dumbest thing that the Dumb Mondays series has ever seen, and I previously made predictions in this feature so that’s saying something.

After recording the podcast last week we decided to play some video games together. Mortal Kombat and NBA 2K14 PC could not handle the greatness that is Joel Anthony transcontinental lag so we played something that we knew could mask any apparent lag, NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 4. If you are a regular listener to the podcast you know I constantly joke about playing tag in NBA 2K14’s The Park, I think once I picked my jaw up off the floor after its announcement I immediately blurted out that gem. Well, last week we did it. I present to you Andrew, Arcane also known as Ben, and J2theAO JaoSming aka Jon playing tag, in The Park, set to Yakety Sax of course. Enjoy, and I am so very sorry.
