Back in Blue Alternate, 2012:

The first of the team’s only two sleeved jerseys, the Back in Blue brought back the light blue one featured on the jerseys of the San Diego Clippers. The jerseys were made as part of Adidas’ NBA Pride Uniform Collection and paid homage to the “Nautical Culture of Southern California.” The shorts of the uniform spelled out LAC in maritime flag signals, a feature that has been added to the team’s newest jerseys. The team wore the jerseys for Sunday home games and the uniform color way quickly became a favorite among fans who hated the short sleeve design.

BIG Logo Jersey, Christmas 2013:

In their third consecutive Christmas Day game, the Clippers donned the BIG Logo Jerseys. These jerseys featured an oversized team logo on the front of the uniform and were the second sleeved jerseys that the Clippers have worn. The team logo was made of a reflective chrome to “help celebrate the lights and decorations of the holiday season” as said by Adidas.
