    Here's a style ranking of the MPBL jerseys from filthy mess to clean classic

    May 11, 2018
    Who wore the most stylish jersey in the MPBL?

    THERE is always that lowkey one-upmanship when it comes to the gear you bring onto the basketball court. Your sneakers are the obvious focal point, but you can also stunt on your opponents with socks, shorts, and—last but not least—loads of compression gear.

    Let’s not forget the jersey, though. If you’re itching to prove that your city is indeed the best in balling (or just a hipster who wants to be different) then repping a Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) kit could be in your future.

    10) Imus Bandera

    NBA Spirit Animal: Dallas

    Our list starts off with a total brick from Imus. We suggest picking just one cheesy design element only please: the silhouetted representation of your city or the Philippine flag color scheme.

    9) Bataan Defenders

    NBA Spirit Animal: New York

    That logo is so huge it almost counts as another defender in the paint. As for the overall map-like print, we say the world isn’t ready for it yet.

    8) Caloocan Supremos

    NBA Spirit Animal: Oklahoma

    Sorry Caloocan fans, but that gradient highlight looks too dated for 2018. Supremos, take this L.

    7) Navotas Clutch

    NBA Spirit Animal: Miami

    Look at that, “clutch indeed!!!” Loving the social media team, Navotas! But it seems your design team was asleep on the job for this jersey.

    6) Paranaque Patriots

    NBA Spirit Animal: Milwaukee

    Brave choice for going with green but the main lightning bolt graphic just unnecessarily extends to the shorts for some minus point. That Yakimix sponsorship though.

    5) Muntinlupa Cagers

    NBA Spirit Animal: Lakers (if purple)/ Denver (if blue)

    Is it blue or is it purple? Clean effort but the MPBL’s version of The Dress does slightly perplex us. Also, is the team name a clever joke about Bilibid?

    4) Quezon City Capitals

    NBA Spirit Animal: Washington

    Even though QC got to play capital for around 30 years, the crown went back to the south so they’ve got to content themselves with this team name instead. Classy logo, but it could lose one of the two main stripes we think.

    3) Valenzuela Classic

    NBA Spirit Animal: Portland

    This jersey blatantly shows its “inspiration” on its metaphorical face, but you can’t deny that it works well enough with Valenzuela’s clean typeface. You could almost call the look…classic.

    2) Batangas Athletics

    NBA Spirit Animal: LeBron Jam–err, Cleveland

    With its simple color combo, it just gets the job done for the inaugural champs.

    1) Bulacan Kuyas

    NBA Spirit Animal: Sacramento
