Atlanta is worst of 'best-dressed' sports cities: ESPN

The Hawks, Falcons and Braves can’t win for losing.

ESPN placed Atlanta at the bottom of the heap for UNI WATCH 2015, its list of best-dressed cities.

For the rankings, team uniforms of cities with three or more major pro sports teams were graded on a scale from one to 10.

In their analysis of Atlanta, ESPN noted that the Hawks' new uniforms are "bad enough to rank among the NBA's worst," and the Falcons' uniforms "look like a clown costume."

Consequently, this puts Atlanta in "a hole that not even the Braves can dig you out of."

Atlanta UNI WATCH score:

• Overall: 2.67

• Braves: 6.5

• Falcons: 2.0

• Hawks: 1.5

• Intangibles: -2.0 (for the Georgia Dome)
