I like the vibrant, dynamic, modern feel of this site. I like how the graphics spill over the central slide show images and unify the site. I also like its simple navigation. On the other hand, the graphics are too dominant (take up too much space) and perhaps a little too masculine and edgy.
I like the modern, cool vibe of this design. However, I don't want to use silhouettes for the player images (we'll use real photos). I also don't want a design that is too specific to a location (city).
I like the clean look and feel and some of the background artwort. But some of the sites are little too serious and dark. Also, I prefer a little more graphic design work enhancing the photos.
http://www.wilson.com - some interesting graphics, but kind of a boring site overall
http://www.gatorade.com - although there are is no interesting artwork to enhance the photos, I like the clean look and simple navigation.
http://www.puma.com, - some cool graphics
competitor: ihoops.com - I like that it allows the real videos of players to be showcased, but it is not really a compelling site. I want a site that is represents a unique look and feel: vibrant, dynamic, energetic, serious, intelligent but human/personal
