Could these be the new uniforms for several NBA teams?

The Warriors could be adding ANOTHER new uniform for this season.

Take this as pure speculation. The information from this post could be true. But without any confirmation, take it for what it is. I’m inclined to believe that this could be likely real.

But for the sake of discussion, let’s assume these are true. Let’s take a look at them and try to guess what will be the changes that these teams will take on with their new uniforms for the season.

Jason Collins to sign with Nets — good for him

This is great news. He is the first openly gay player in the NBA.

And now the story about that is done. I was hoping he’d get this chance and now that the chance is here, let’s stop talking about it. Let’s focus on him as a basketball player.

We’ve matured as a society where something like this should not be major news anymore. Still good news, but not something that should linger.

I’m happy for him and hope he stays longer than 10 days.

Heritage jerseys and sleeves? Of course Adidas would do this

Check out the main bit the blog post talks about today. Apparently the Nets will have their heritage jersey with sleeves. We had known that heritage jerseys will be brought into the mix but had no idea what exactly that meant. Now we have an idea. Take the old Nets design from the ABA days and slap on some sleeves.

Yeah, great idea Adidas. Your sleeve revolution is such a great look.

This is terrible. Why ruin an iconic design just for some cheap merchandising opportunities? Well, because Adidas has no sense of anything.

Shame on you!

After seeing those nickname jerseys, I am OK with them

OK, the above photo is pretty cool if you understand the significance of it.

Last night, the Heat and Nets wore nicknames on their jerseys. It’s not the first time the NBA has done this, but it’s the first time where every player had a nickname. I actually don’t mind it at all. It doesn’t ruin the aesthetics of the uniforms and it adds a little fun.

The only problem, however, is that not everyone has a nickname. Some just seemed so forced. But overall, it’s a fine promotion and it apparently is happening a couple more times this season. Let’s just keep it at that. No need to continue to drag this out.

Jesus Shuttlesworth did make it out of Big State to the NBA!

The NBA was rumored to have a few dates set where players would have their nicknames on their jersey. Via Spike Lee’s Instagram, that rumor has been confirmed as he tweeted Ray Allen’s jersey.

If you don’t get it, go watch “He Got Game.”

I had been loathing this even though this isn’t a new idea for the league. The problem with this is that back in the 1970s, the promotion of the league wasn’t individual based and full of ego. In today’s NBA, you watch not for the team, but for the individual player. It’s a team sport but it hasn’t been promoted as so. This just confirms it.

The NBA and Adidas’ desire to produce more sleeved abominations

Yes, NBA and Adidas. Please tell me how these are great designs for a basketball uniform! It is so great to see something so innovative in a sport that demands something like this.

Oh Adidas, you are one of a kind.

[/sarcasm]

My goodness these are horrible.

PICTURE: Is this the Nets Christmas jersey?

If this is the real sleeved Christmas jerseys for the NBA, I’m going to tap out. These are not basketball jerseys. They’re freakin shirseys!
