The Dream of the Basketball Jerseys

We all get a dream no matter in childhood or in adulthood. But for most NBA fans, their dream is to get a jersey of their favourite players. Actually, just for me, I do not have so much desire to any one of the players, because I love them all, I love NBA, I love basketball and I love all kinds of basketball jerseys.

Here we start. Vince – Carter and Ray – Allen, NBA’s two extremes, they have been selected to participant in the Dream Team and All Star, they are not only each other’s strong enemy, but also close friends. One was famous for 4 times King of NBA All Star relying on a gorgeous dunk and versatility, and known as the greatest buckle. The other was a diligent self-discipline player, who committed on hard training for ten years as one day and was well-known for accurate shooting. So many years later he has become the king of NBA’s three points. Their jersey is also my favourite.

May you think Westbrook’s style is hot, it is because you have never seen the peak moment of Jump King Francis; may you think Williams is the strongest point guard, it is because you have never known the Beard who can beat all union guard; may you think Rubio and Rondo’s pass are the most gorgeous one, it is because you don’t know that Nash and the White Chocolate have always been known as the Basketball Dancer; may you think Erwin’s movement is the most extraordinary and without solution, it is because you do not know that there was a man named Allen Iverson who could make the Basketball Gods Jordan as a past background.

People used to call Auerbach as “cardinal”, this is only 1.75 of the elderly will be devoted to Boston Celtic, “bishop” for Celtic over 50 years, which has Lvshan army for more than 20 years, brought 9 NBA champions for the garden court, enumerate Lvshan military history on every successful transaction and draft, all reveal his old wisdom, his basketball philosophy affects almost a generation. This is a tough, old-fashioned and arrogant coach, but he’s always the best person to represent the spirit of the army.

So, how is your dream, my friends? Have you ever dreamed of a fantastic jersey?

A Report from a Student Who Designed NBA Jersey

As a student major in the fashion design, from my perspective there is nothing more meaningful and interesting to design a clothes that has no equal in this world. However, I know that it is a long way to go. So I want to be inspired to a certain extent, to design a NBA jersey.

For one thing, I design this jersey is out of some reason. We are totally acknowledged that one period is exactly corresponding to one type sculpture as well as one style clothing and gradually, as we all known, becoming a kind of era characteristic or even representative in the angle of view of our modern people. Here comes a question: why this particular objective becomes a trend of that time? Obviously, the particular one can’t be just appeared with one single competitors. On the contrary, there must be in an incredible numbers who are trying to be a trend of the day. But they failed except the only one who we know and learn nowadays. Seriously speaking, the lesson here is hard to tell, but we at least acquire a little, namely, to cater to people’s taste of the day. That is to say, when we are supposed to design a dress, one important thing we must consider is the time background of that clothing. For instance, when you are living in a city full of high buildings and modern cars, you then can never have such a plan to design a clothes suitable for the ancient dynasties. What I am trying to say here is, it is reasonable to do something in tune with the times.

For another thing, through the process I designed the jersey I realize one crucial thing we need to focus on, that is, to make good use of human’s psychology and habit. Most time people’s judge to a clothing depends on many elements such as the light, visual angle, and first impression, definitely it is both related to human’s psychic effect and daily habit. We are just not to mislead people by taking advantage of such properties but to improve our works in different ways. Let me set an event as an example, once the non-mainstream things like the blast hair, bell-bottomed pants and so on are regarded as the symbol of the rebel youth or bad guys.

However, as time goes, non-mainstream has become popular and fashionable all over the world, so does my jersey. Frankly speaking, it is concerned about the change of people’s concept, but we have to admit that the guy who tries to change people’s concept must have paid much attention to the psychology controlling. We can’ t judge it right or wrong, but at least the non-mainstream objectives must be improved subtly in some respects along with people’s concept change.

Maybe my report is not the most wonderful one, but I have quite learnt a lot in the process of jersey designing. Designing a good jersey is never an easy thing, I’ve been always looking for my own way and going better and better in the future.

10 Years of Waiting, A Story of Jerseys

In a crossroad of a southern provincial road, there was an odd man setting at the passage, day after day. He was so old that passer-by almost could not recognize his age and his face, but there was one thing very conspicuous, that was a jersey wearing on his body. The jersey was broken so much, but the English letter NBA still be more than clear to read. The old man wouldn’t leave, neither accept any assistance from government or personal. He was stubborn, all day long people just heard his self-talking that, “ I will wait for you forever, then we can play basketball together…”

Before long, the old man was dead, the local government held a grave funeral for him in the military ceremony. Afterwards, people knew a great story from the old man’s diary. The truth is that, the old man was a solider served for nation for 10 years last century. And there was an unforgettable experience happened on him, that’s a story about a jersey.

According to his diary, 40 years ago, he was an ordinary dogrobber in army. At that time, the army he stayed was ordered to participant in a great battle in a strange country. The fight was very hard, he and his men were suffered a lot. Nobody knew how long could they persist for this meaningless war. Among them, there was a young man, same age as him, they all called the young man as “little Jordan” for that the young man loved basketball so much that he could hold his ball even in sleep. Little Jordan always told him that he wanted to be a professional basketball player after war, and all his dreams was to have one his own jersey. Affected by Jordan so much that he begun to play basketball after battle.

Soon later, they became best friends and promised for each other that they would join the NBA together after the term of service. However, in a fierce battle, Jordan was dead because of covering for him. But he never forgot their promise.

For 40 years, he just set in the crossroad and waited for his battle companion. He wore the jersey for Jordan could find him at one sight they met. After the old man’s death, the local government collected this jersey in to the museum as a symbol of freedom and friendship. And this is also the spirit of America.

Modern era of NFL

In the 1970s and 1980s, the NFL solidified its dominance as America’s top spectator sport, and its important role in American culture. The Super Bowl became an unofficial national holiday and the top-rated TV program most years. Monday Night Football, which first aired in 1970, brought in high ratings by mixing sports and entertainment. Rule changes in the late 1970s ensured a fast-paced game with lots of passing to attract the casual fan.
The World Football League was the first post-merger challenge to the NFL’s dominance, and in 1974, successfully lured some top NFL talent to its league and prompted a few rules changes in the NFL. However, financial problems led the league to fold halfway through its 1975 season. Two teams, the Birmingham Vulcans and Memphis Southmen, made unsuccessful efforts to move from the WFL to the NFL.

The founding of the United States Football League in the early 1980s was the biggest challenge to the NFL in the post-merger era. The USFL was a well-financed competitor with big-name players and a national television contract. However, the USFL failed to make money and folded after three years. The USFL filed a successful anti-trust lawsuit against the NFL, but the remedies were minimal, and mismanagement (most notably, a planned move of its niche spring football season to a head-to-head competition in the fall) led to the league’s collapse.

2001 saw the establishment of the XFL, an attempt by Vince McMahon and NBC, which had lost the NFL broadcast rights for that year, to compete with the league; the XFL folded after just one season Unlike the WFL and USFL, the XFL had no impact on the NFL’s rules or franchise locations (its attempts at innovations were often ridiculed, though one innovation, the above the field Sk ycam  which originated in the XFL, became a regular part of NFL telecasts), but a few NFL players used the XFL to relaunch their careers.

The United Football League, which began play in 2009, had originally planned to take a direct challenge to the NFL with NFL-comparable salaries and teams in New York City and Los Angeles, but the UFL never did play in those cities (an ostensibly New York team played in Long Island and New Jersey), cut back its salaries, and instead opted for a complementary approach with teams in cities such as Las Vegas, Sacramento and Omaha; after four years, the UFL folded due to massive financial losses. Numerous other leagues have attempted to form over the years, but none have succeeded in having any level of competition comparable to the NFL (most never made it to their first game).
