New jersey for a new-look team


Alternate jerseys, retro looks and different color combinations are still hot in all sports, and tonight the Bucks unveiled a new, red alternate road uniform at the Bradley Center during the team's 2008-'09 season ticket holder tip-off party.

The last time the Bucks featured an alternate road jersey was during the 1996-'97 season.

The new uniforms will be worn "as many as 15 times and utilize the same classic trim, waistband and short taping as the title team, but with a unique reversal of the original color scheme," according to a release from the team. All of the colors have been revised with Bucks deep red serving as the body of the uniform, replacing the typical forest green.

The alternate road uniform, to be worn for the first time at the team's home opener on Saturday, Nov. 1, is inspired by the Bucks 1971 NBA Championship season uniforms.

The jersey, which is available now at bucks.com, will appear in the NBA Live '09 video game slated to debut on Oct. 7.

The Bucks will wear the red jerseys for one home game beside the opener: a matchup Nov. 29 against Cleveland at the Bradley Center.

Red 6 looks like Dr J and the 76'er's. Otherwise, Not bad! I like the classic look.

Totally agreed that the "Milwaukee" looks better than "Bucks." I think more teams should follow this "lead." Go Bucks!

Did the 71 team wear red uniforms? Not crazy about the red, it's too similar to the Badgers (yuck). I love how it says "Milwaukee" across the chest. I think their green away jerseys should say "Milwaukee" across the chest too.

Maybe this uniform will help them win some games this season. LOL. Nothing else has seemed to work.

Reminds me of the Lew Alcindor and Big O days.
