Ranking six worst, most cringe-worthy Bay Area uniforms since 2000
No. 6: 49ers all-black uniforms, 2015
The all-black 49ers uniforms during the Colin Kaepernick era stand out as not being the best, but they're certainly not the worst.
It was weird seeing recently retired Joe Staley wearing the garb, but Kap rocked those colors despite people believing the team was trying too hard to make them modern.
No. 5: A's black alternates, 2000
For the A’s, it’s weird that they would want to experiment so much knowing they have one of the most unique color schemes in the league. But that’s what they did back in 2000. Now, these aren’t all that bad, and the team did finish first in the AL West while possessing the “Big Three” with Mark Mulder, Barry Zito and Tim Hudson that season.
The Kelly Green remains the G.O.A.T of all Bay Area uniforms.
Don’t forget it.
No. 4: Sharks light uniforms, 2007-13
The Sharks uniforms were difficult to find “bad,” which is a good thing. And the Rob Blake-era squad sported the typical San Jose colors from 2007-13, but they dabbled with some orange accents as well.
They were just OK, but appeared to be really heavy like an old sweater you found in the back of your closet that you had to wear for Thanksgiving dinner because your aunt bought it for you.
That makes us as viewers uncomfortable. Imagine how the players felt.
No. 3: Giants "Player’s Weekend," 2017
Player’s Weekend is a great way to pay homage to the players who entertain us 162 games a year, but in 2017, the inaugural year of Player's Weekend, the Giants wore grey uniforms with orange sleeves.
Have you ever liked a piece of clothing that had orange sleeves? No, you haven’t.
Luckily, we were distracted by the fun nicknames they wore.
But they were still awful and Madison Bumgarner (MAD-BUM) deserved better.
No. 2: Warriors alternates, 2012-13
At first glance, these look fine. The gold being the primary color with the blue trim around the collar isn't a complete eyesore. That is, until you scroll down and see the pinstripes.
Perhaps vertical pinstripes could be slimming, but they also look like something you would see on a clown who could only make one type of balloon animal.
Not great, but at least the Warriors' 2012-13 record dramatically improved from the previous season.
No. 1: Kings gold alternates, 2005-07
The worst of the worst.
The Kings’ gold alternate unis from 2005-07 are very, very bad. The fact that they sported these for more than one season is astounding.
ESPN even voted these as some of the worst uniforms … ever, comparing them to a gold fitted sheet.
These were also worn during the last time the Kings made the playoffs. People saw these on a bigger stage -- that’s frightening.
