    Philly royal blue vs Boston green in London today. I suppose English audiences are more accustomed to teams stubbornly wearing color jerseys at the expense of maximum viewability, but still.

    Those all star unis aren’t much to look at, but I get it. They and their associated merch will sell like crazy, filling the monochrome gap. Who ever bought “team east” merch anyway? Plus I’ve been looking for an all-black Celtics hat so this may work out for me.

    Other than everything else about the brand, sure.

    I'm so tired of the Hickory gimmick. It was cute for like a season or so. Three straight seasons (and two different jersey sets!) is too much.

    Wolves would look great if that was somewhere between a kelly and forest green. The neon has gotta go.

    Yeah, it's a captain from each conference, they just then get to pick the rosters across conference lines. So no Team LeBron vs Team Kyrie this year.

    I'd be pleasantly shocked if Giannis holds on. What I'm really hoping for as a pipe dream is for Irving to take the lead. That'd be fun.

    Remember that it's not East/West anymore, but schoolyard style (a.k.a. probably Team LeBron vs Team Curry), so if you loved this era of the NFL Pro Bowl...

    Believe the going rate is $85 for replica, $120 for authentic. Plus $30 for a name and number on the back. (Which all seems quite a bit steeper than just a couple years ago.)

    Everyone gets a video tribute these days. Kelly Olynyk got one earlier this year, for heaven's sake. Maybe it's just to soften Danny Ainge's facade of being cold and ruthless with his personnel moves.

    The funereal vibe of that shirt is a little on-the-nose.

    Or reverse the scheme — red and white vertical stripes as the throwback demands, tonal shoulder stripes. Call me cynical...

    Ah interesting, thanks @upperV03 — I like it, though I still wish there was further variation across the league.

    Random, unrelated thing I noticed... with their new unis, the Cavs have a custom name-on-back font. Are they the only ones not using one of the three fonts that everyone else is using? Even Minnesota is using the standard, Impact-ish sans serif typeface after their rebrand.

    I wonder if the mystifying Revs kit is meant as a throwback to the NASL's old Boston Minutemen, who I believe even played at the old Foxboro Stadium for a year or two. If so they certainly should've stuck with the white and red stripes, for multiple reasons.
