The Bucks can't wear Cream City jerseys again because of ... modern technology?
The Milwaukee Bucks will debut a new city jersey Wednesday, but can no longer wear the 'Cream City' jerseys due to interference with TV broadcast.Just because I’ve seen it a bunch today: we aren’t allowed to do cream colored jerseys anymore. There are reasons, but suffice it to say it won’t appease anyone to get into it, so I’ll just say: we would if we could.

Jordan Clarkson ‘super-upset,’ Will Hardy livid about no-call on ‘gross’ play .
Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson acknowledged being "super-upset" about not getting a foul call for being knocked out of the air on a dunk attempt Saturday vs. the Blazers, calling for referees to be subject to more "accountability."Sitting in the interview room at Vivint Arena on Saturday night, clad in an oversize puffy coat and gingerly cradling his swollen right elbow, he wanted to convey his displeasure with the referees he felt had failed to protect him, while not being so demonstrative as to incur a sizable fine from the NBA watchdogs who penalize outspoken vilification of their game officials.
