It’s Jersey Week here at SB Nation and we kicked things off falling in love with ’90s-era NBA jerseys all over again. First, we sat down and talked about the wild, colorful, and cartoonish jerseys, including some we did and did not like. But it wasn’t just us here at SB Nation. You all had some strong feelings about those ’90s jerseys, too. From the purple dinosaur to a cartoon rocket ship, here were your favorites.
Raptors Big Purple Dinosaur
The overwhelming favorite ’90s jersey is the Raptors Purple Dinosaur. Actually, y’all love this so much, it might be the greatest jersey of all time.

Orlando Magic Pinstripes
If the Raptors were the far-and-away favorite for the best jerseys of the ’90s, then the Orlando Magic pinstripes were equally as far away from the rest of the pack. The great thing about these is we got them in three different colors.
But something about those black alternates were just better than the rest.

The Pistons and their teal horse.
These jerseys create a little more controversy than the first two, but you can’t deny the ’90s nostalgia just pouring out of these. Grant Hill in the teal.

I'm not a Pistons fan! But those jerseys are tight— Alex Wolfe (@thealexwolfe) October 3, 2017
The Phoenix Suns and their sunburst
They were pretty great in purple.

But they were even better in black.
We even got a special shout out to Starter jackets!
I loved those jerseys. My stepmom bought me this jacket for Christmas one year. pic.twitter.com/uxWjV0aVUz— chuwie (@chuwie) October 3, 2017
The Grizzlies and the literal bear claw on the shorts

The Rockets and their cartoon Rocket
Everything about the Utah Jazz
The Jazz actually had a couple of versions of their jersey in the ’90s and honestly they both were pretty fantastic.

Charlotte Hornets and the teal pinstripes
This jersey did not get a lot of chatter and, honestly, I’m with Air-Turk here.
