When talking about an NBA team, you may think of a few things. The city, the players, and ultimately, the jersey. Yes, the jersey of a team is what separates one team from another, and many fans become attached to a certain uniform. These jerseys are the personality of the respective organizations. Each night as the athletes take the court the one thing that binds them all together is the jersey on their backs. It's more then just some random material the players wear, it's a piece of the city, the fans, and the organization that the players represent with pride and honor.
A certain NBA jersey can bring back many memories of the players, the era, and the success (or little success) the team had when they wore them. Some NBA teams have strived to create the most cutting edge jerseys they can, and some teams have stuck to their roots and don't plan on changing anytime soon. I picked these jerseys on what type of caliber players wore them, the success the team had while wearing them, fan feedback on them, and especially the appearance of the uniforms.
There are some teams excluded from this list because some organizations have relocated and have not been established for very long. Remember, these are OPINIONS. Hopefully this sparks a debate wherever you are reading this. I bet it will.

3 Toronto Raptors - 1995-1999
2 Utah Jazz - 1996-2004
1 Washington Wizards: Alternate 2006-2009
I don't care what you say about these jerseys, they are the best in Wizards history. Gold jerseys...why wouldn't they be great? The Wizards keep the essence of their organization by placing the stars on the front, back, and down the side of the jersey. The only thing I don't love about these jerseys is the simplistic logo on the front. If your going with a gold jersey, you might as well go all out.
