According to the press release, these will be worn for every Saturday home game. The press release did not indicate if this alternate will replace the yellow ones worn last year or this is an addition to their current set.
Either way, the sleeves craze is out of control. Several teams have already joined it and it now looks like the NBA players are just wearing T-shirts on the court.
I’m pretty sure it’s lighter as they say, but it has not received popular feedback from fans. But if Adidas continues to think their designs are good, they’re going to continue to just give us this nonsense.
All 10 teams that play on Christmas will have sleeves. To my knowledge, the Suns and Clippers will have sleeved alternates this year. There could be more in the works for other teams.
