The Clippers’ default jerseys don’t earn a ton of love (white, black, and blue isn’t the most exciting color combination), but they’ve knocked it out of the park with their alternates for several years. After the success of the Mister Cartoon City Editions the last two seasons, the team is poised for another hit with the 2021-22 model.

According to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, 71 percent of Clippers fans are on board with the latest City Edition jerseys. That’s a bit lower than the 83 percent of fans across the NBA who support their team’s new uniforms. My only gripe with the new duds is the contrasting fonts between the team name and the player name and number; the drawback of trying to honor multiple eras at a time means having to incorporate potentially mismatched elements, but overall, I think the look works.

SB Nation’s Ricky O’Donnell had high praise for the new release in his team rankings as well:

Here’s a take for you: the Clippers’ typical uniforms are hot garbage. I’m feeling these. Would love to see the Clips adopt this color scheme going forward when they move into their new building a few years from now.

Unlike in past seasons with the Miami VICE jerseys or the Nuggets rainbow skyline alternates, there wasn’t a consensus favorite among this year’s crop of City Editions. The Spurs and Raptors were voted to have the best uniforms, but each only captured 12 percent of the fan vote.
