Today I have a really interesting scoop for you. Here’s the deal: Last Thursday Bucks chief marketing officer Dustin Godsey, responding to some fans’ inquiries, tweeted that the team would no longer be able to wear cream-colored uniforms like the two shown above (which were worn in 2017-18 and 2019-20, respectively), but he said he didn’t want to get into the reasons or the details:
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.

I got in touch with Godsey and, after a bit of back-and-forth, convinced him to go public with the story behind the cream uniform ban, which turned out to be faaaaascinating. The one thing I’ll tell you here is that no matter how hard you think about it, you probably won’t come up with the right reason!
I’ve decided to put this story on Substack, but it’s not paywalled — everyone can read it here. Enjoy!
