New Uniforms

The Denver Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks made major changes to their uniform set. The Bucks adapted about the same color scheme as the Colorado Rockies baseball team, except that hunter green is used instead of black, while their uniforms feature taller B's and S's on the home and road jerseys. The Nuggets switched to a more styled typeface script to go along with their new uniforms. The Dallas Mavericks switched back to blue road uniforms for the first time since 1981.
