P. Diddy’s Mavericks Uniform Debuts

Sean “P. Diddy”

Combs’ latest design debuted last week, as the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks displayed

their new uniforms during a game versus the New York Knicks, Friday (November


The Mavericks will

sport the alternate uniforms designed by Diddy in 10 other appearances—once

more at a home game and nine times on the road—mostly in major-market


The silver uniforms

of last year were discarded after only one game, versus the Los Angeles Lakers.

Combs befriended

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban two years ago and in December of 2003, the green

light was given for Combs to handle the new look of the alternate uniforms.

"At least

they don’t look like astronaut uniforms this year," said one fan of the

Dallas Mavericks. Others were quite pleased with the uniform’s look.

"I like it

a lot, especially that it says ‘Mavs,’" said another satisfied fan, who

paid attention to the details of the design. “Having ‘Dallas’ on both

jerseys is kinda lame, and the ‘Mavericks’ on last year’s alternates was too


Even Mavericks

Head Coach Don Nelson liked Diddy’s design, saying “The more I looked

at it, the better it got.”

The Mavericks beat

the New York Knicks that evening, 103-101.

The uniforms do

not bear the Sean John logo, due to the NBA’s exclusive licensing deal with

apparel giant Reebok.
