The 87ers, the G-League team of the Philadelphia 76ers, are wearing themed uniforms to celebrate Nickelodeon night and there’s probably no better way to represent the event than wearing Bikini Bottom-inspired attire.
Honestly, these are a bit weird, but in a good way. The loud details somehow pair well, perfectly capturing the liveliness of Spongebob’s character without going overboard. The best part is these jerseys will be signed by the players and auctioned off for charity after the game.
Meanwhile, the NBA’s main league recently debuted their City jerseys. Here are some of our personal picks for worst jersey design ever. Prepare yourselves for an eyesore.
Rapper Jeezy debuted the new Hawks jerseys, but his presence wasn’t enough to hide the bad combination of neon highlights with Atlanta’s futuristic fonts and designs, giving it a Tron vibe that just doesn’t seem to work.

Oklahoma City Thunder
Anything on a gray base usually looks good but not this time. Not even Russell Westbrook’s MVP stats could fix this hot mess.
Adding a sunrise pattern is a nice touch, but these look more like they belong to the Phoenix Suns.
