How the Timberwolves-Rockets sleevefest uniform matchup doesn’t bother me

Sleeves are bad. But the designs are nice.

I don’t like sleeved uniforms in the NBA. In fact, any sleeve uniform I just cringe when I see them. Yet for some reason, this matchup right here doesn’t bother me. I don’t know why.

First, this is the Rockets’ Chinese New Year uniform and it actually looks really good. Aside from the sleeves, the design is simple yet still captures the identity of the Rockets team. As a one-time deal, this one actually looks like it belongs in the NBA. In fact, this seems like a design I might see in a league in China.

The Wolves, out of all the sleeved jerseys out there, have one that doesn’t offend me so much. I like it also because of the simplicity. Black is a safe color to go with when it comes to sleeves and the side panels work really well with their identity.

So in a battle of very ugly jerseys, the two that were least offensive to me met on the court tonight. If you just look away from the sleeves, these jerseys aren’t too bad.

  1. Although the sleeved jerseys do look very nice, as a basketball player i am against it and hope no NBA teams go with sleeves. Performance>Style, the restricted range of motion in the sleeved jerseys have no performance benefits, just style points.

    • Absolutely. Sleeves are restrictive and this is all in the sense of style. I know the feeling of sleeves versus tanks. SMH at Adidas and the NBA for forcing this.
