These all-white jerseys have their fair share of fans, but we cannot abide a Lakers uniform that leaves off the purple and gold. And no, the trim here on the lettering isn't enough. On the biggest NBA day of the regular season, we need a little bit more Lakers coloring than these gave us.

This one hurts, because that old-school Knicks logo is really cool. But the tiny version on top of the numbers -- and on an otherwise completely plain jersey -- looks like something that would have been considered and discarded during the brainstorming of the actual jersey.

2014 Chicago Bulls
The Bulls jerseys last year suffered from the same problems as the Knicks. And on players with double-digit numbers, like Joakim Noah here, these uniforms actually look like they're being worn backward. It'd be a cool look for 90s musical group Kris Kross. On an NBA court, it just looks weird.

2013 Oklahoma City Thunder
There is nothing thunderous about the Oklahoma City logo. And when you fashion it in a monochromatic style, it looks really bland. On the bright side, this Thunder uniform would make for a pretty decent set of pajamas.

2012 Los Angeles Clippers
We dare anyone who isn't an NBA fan to try to read the script on these jerseys. Because if we didn't recognize Chris Paul & Co., we'd be awfully confused by the blurry team name apparently emblazoned on the front of this jersey. 'Big Color' was the theme, so we get it. But it's kind of important that people be able to identify who's on the court, right?

2014 Cleveland Cavaliers
Mustard and ketchup. We'll never be able to look at these Cavs jerseys without thinking of condiments. The first-name-based nameplates didn't really work in 2014, either. And that tiny Cavaliers logo just seems out of place.

This Spurs logo is pretty cool. The rest of the jersey, however, is a hard pass, at least for most of us. For San Antonio, the boring grey is perfectly fitting.

2013 Brooklyn Nets
There's a fine line between 'clean' and 'boring.' This Nets jersey falls on the wrong side of that line. They look like something you'd find in a typical youth basketball game. Even Jason Terry's zebra socks couldn't save Brooklyn in 2013.

2012 Houston Rockets
It's like a worse version of the 2013 Spurs jerseys, without the saving grace of the cool logo. There's nothing offensive about these jerseys, because there's literally nothing to them. Stare at this picture long enough, in fact, and you might have found your newest sleep aid.

2012 New York Knicks
Ah! Why?! So much orange! The blue trim is pretty cool in this close crop, but zoom out at all, and the lettering and numbering become lost in a sea of pumpkin. We'll applaud the choice to go bold, given the blandness of the previous three jerseys. But bold doesn't necessarily mean beautiful.
