Check out the new playoff t-shirts over at NBA.com, pretty stylish right? Maybe, but they certainly won't get any points for originality. A company called Undercrown started the trend of doing these types of shirts with a sports theme, and theirs are way more interesting. For example, some of their offerings include shirts honoring the Fab 5 from Michigan, the UNLV championship team, and the 80's Lakers. This was also picked up by some people around the blogosphere, the first one that comes to mind is this one by the people at Wizznutzz, honoring the 1998 Bullets' bench.
The ones that are currently being peddled on NBA.com aren't nearly as imaginative. They really should have taken a more creative approach. For example, in the spirit of the Kobe shirt, this is what I would have done with the Spurs' shirt.
