Tonight, the Warriors will debut the above uniform set against the Spurs. Children cover your eyes. Adults, cover your ears.
The problem with the uniform set isn’t so much the sleeve itself. In fact, I’ve played basketball in shirts with sleeves and they are fine. They don’t inhibit my play in any way. So sleeves for a jersey is fine. The error is that there are so many aesthetic design flaws.
From mismatching jersey and shorts, the odd choice for bridge pinstripes, and the fact the jersey looks very thin doesn’t help the cause for the uniform set. The unfortunate rec league look will have to take some getting used to as this trend is clearly going to expand next season.
What was talked about before is now officially official. Check out these press conference caps for all MLB teams.
ALL CAPS CAN BE SEEN RIGHT HERE with some logo misplacements.
This is what I had feared. Is it necessary? Absolutely not. But for branding, merchandising and all that, it’s smart business.
The design is very simple. It gives off that rugged look, which I don’t know if it really does much. The league logo on the side with the team logo on the right.
So much advertising space.
The talk of having ads on NBA uniforms is getting closer and closer to a reality. And with the unveiling of the new Warriors sleeve jerseys, one has to wonder if these two will come together.
After all, look at all that advertising real estate on the jersey. There’s so much room on the sleeves to place an ad.
However, as Uni Watch points out, maybe the sleeves won’t be the place where the ads are placed. If you want prime exposure for cameras and photos, the best place to put the ad would be on the front of the jersey.
But what is a concern is that with the new Warriors jersey, other teams will likely join along in the process. As early as next season, more NBA teams could very well feature the same sleeve jerseys as the Warriors. The college teams outfitted by Adidas are set to wear them later this season — potentially during the NCAA Tournament.
Even if the ads aren’t placed on the sleeves, this is a sign of things to come in the NBA.
When the NBA season started, there was a rumor about the Warriors wearing a new alternate with sleeves. It was a rumor at the time but it wasn’t thought of to be serious. And as the season continued, there was no more talk of it so it appeared that it would be scrapped.
Today, the uniforms resurfaced again and the nightmare has returned. And they will be unveiled tonight! They are set to wear them on February 22, March 8 and 15. This will be the first team in the modern NBA era to wear a jersey that’s not a tank top. Adidas has been toying with this idea since 2o11.
Let me be the first to say that when I saw this uniform months ago, I was against it. Now seeing the full thing, I stick with what I said.

Pretty solid design for the draft day caps.
New Era has revealed their new collection for the upcoming NFL Draft. And I must say, from what we see here, it looks pretty nice.
Looking at the cap in the middle (which is essentially the same design for the left flex fit cap), we see that the caps will feature the logo and the team name. Last year, it was just the city name covering the logo. What stands out about this cap is the two-tone look for the script. Taking the team’s colors, the script will run across the crown with the logo in the forefront. In my opinion, some teams caps will look really good in this and it still features a vintage type design.
The other design that they show is a snapback design. The brim will be the opposite color of the crown, which is the case for most popular snapback designs.
This is a neat Sonics shirt.
Remember back in the 1990s when having animated images of players on your shirt was the fashion? Wearing something like that embodied the decade but also showed your dedication to a team or player.
Has that fad returned?
I recently went to a sports store and saw this Sonics shirt. It cracked me up because it featured the starting five of the Sonics that went to the Finals and the cartoonish/video game design looked really silly. It looked so silly that I wanted to get one. If they had a Warriors one, I’d jump all over it.
It’s a great design and I wonder if there are more shirts. I did my research and the answer is yes and yes. Check out this Warriors one! This 8-bit design is really neat.
Space-themed Kevin Durant shoes with a subtle star and #35.
Check this out. Nike unveiled the shoes that LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant will be wearing for the All-Star game that nobody really cares about.
As is customary for many All-Stars, the game is a showcase of new footwear for the consumers. Nike has taken the idea of space travel (the game is played in Houston) and given these three players shoes to reflect that.

The Ravens have a new shirt that they’re wearing. As you can see, this is one of those motivational, inspirational shirts that players use all the time to push themselves through tough battles.
The Ravens were underdogs last week and won in Denver. They have to do the same thing this week against the Patriots. Losing to them is not an option. They can’t fail on this.
After seeing this pop up yesterday, it adds more to the team’s desire to win and go to the Super Bowl. It’s a pretty cool shirt and if it motivates them, I am all for it. Although to them failure is not an option, to everyone else, it’s an option that can happen. Either way, this weekend will be a very good one for football.
I am not sure what to make of this. As you already know, I hate Adidas. But this new line of clothing has me confused.
This is not the first time Native American culture has inspired sporting wear. In fact, the entire Seattle Seahawks look is inspired by Native American designs. But this one seems a little too loud for me.
First of all, the overuse of colors is a pain to the eyes. Second of all, it just seems more like a plastering of designs on an outfit.
But I’m not a Native American so I can’t speak for them and what their thoughts are on this.
