Following on from the inclusion of the road jersey earlier on, the home jersey slots in right near the top of these rankings thanks to how well the colors from the rainbow pop out when offset by Milwaukee’s traditionally neutral white home colors.
Throughout NBA history there are endless examples of white jerseys that end up looking nothing more than bland or washed out, but that just wasn’t the case with Milwaukee’s uniforms in this period of time.
Many would understandably argue for the inclusion of the true “Irish Rainbow” white and green home jersey that was introduced in 1986 here, but in this case I feel the red numbering and trim offers just that extra bit of punch that makes the whole design tie together.
As was mentioned earlier, the bolder font looks like a more natural fit with this design too, compared to the more understated and flat bubble text that proceeded it.
This particular uniform arrived at a time of transition for the team, and appropriately it stated the bold intentions of a team who would be one of the league’s very best in the coming decade.
