NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

I love the potential for the Hawks unis, but would've liked them to keep the current colours with this new patterned jersey.

Xmas jerseys are pretty good, I have a few issues though. I'm not a fan of the simple use of colour, colour + cream. Cleveland, New York, Detroit, Washington all look boring without their secondary colour. Yes NY has it, but it should stand out more.

It may be a stretch of my imagination, but for me, when OKC finally introduce new unis, that Navy will be their main colour.

My top 3 Xmas jerseys are Cleveland, Atlanta and Golden State.

On Golden States xmas jersey, that thing is great. Its by far better than they're current set. I am probably in the minority having seen some opinions in this forum, but the Warriors have one of the worst designed jerseys in the league. So adopting that design would be a great change.

Well, we know the answer to the question "What if every team in the NBA wore the Minnesota Wild's alternate uniform?"

That being said, these don't look that bad. Much better than a lot of what adidas has done in the past.

Closest we'll come to seeing that lovely Celtics script wordmark on a jersey, I suppose. They look nice enough, but still too templatey, too gimmicky, and too far from a regular jersey for my liking.

And are the Clippers not getting new uniforms? Same template, new logos/wordmark?

That might just be the only upside, if one can call it that, to the rest of the atrocity they're calling a re "brand." The only way this new identity would have a "brand" is if Elton Brand came back :P.

Best Christmas unis yet, easily. Gimmicky, maybe, but at least they did it aesthetically right.

I really like these Christmas jerseys! They look refreshing amidst a bunch of gimmicky jerseys on Christmases past.

And the new Hawks identity should be pretty interesting to see...

So, if I understand page 6, the Cavs will have SIX uniforms next year? And they're going to have a second wine-colored uniform that uses the same shorts as the primary road uniform? Gah, I really hope they aren't trying to force that awful "CAVS" wordmark on another jersey. It's all over merchandise everywhere in their team shop.

The changes to the Nuggets jerseys are pretty bad. The new fonts look pretty bland, and the colors seem to be getting more Chargers-ish (not that it means much).

The amount of Soul Swingman jerseys is outstanding. That's a great collection.

Not sure if this is new for next year (I didn't really watch much Knicks this year), but it doesn't look like they have the orange alt anymore based on page 7 or 8 of the catalog. Just a Los Knicks jersey and then the standard home and away.

Others catalogs: http://sldcustomer.adidas-group.com/catalogs-nba/ (look at military Heat jersey).

Thanks! !

A ton of new alternate uniforms!!! Alternate flex uniforms are alts that can be worn at home and road. They even have descriptions of the difference between alt,alt flex, stretch unis (holidays/niche latina),and pride unis!

Christmas hits early again!!! Thanks bro!

These Christmas uniforms just prove that we have way too many blue-based teams in the league. Despite that, I like these. Not a fan of the template wordmark and numbers, but they are nice, so I can't really complain about them.

As I was typing this, I looked at the uniforms again and noticed that the logos on the shorts that contain white (Thunder, Pistons, Wizards, Rockets, etc.) are not greige (that's what they're calling it, I guess). In other words, while everything else greige, the logos are still white. At least have some consistency.

And that Hawks uniform... geesh. At first I thought it was some sort of one-off while using a Christmas pattern of some sort. After seeing the others, it appears that I may be wrong on that.

YES!

I love these xmas unis.

Looks like the nuggets changed their number font and they're changing the numb color to navy blue. Also, I wonder what the stretch jerseys could be... lots of TBD's which excites me

As a Hawks fan, I have two gripes with the new scheme.

1) The shade of the "gold" was going to make or break the rebrand. Anything from classic yellow to maybe a brighter yellow would have been great, but this vomity gold looks bad...at least on the application I'm seeing here.

2) The pac logo just simply isn't made for three colors. The reason the Hawks brand has looked so nice lately is because they've reduced all of their merchandise, marketing, etc to red, white and grey, so the logo looks really simple, bolded. But trying to force the logo into the new color scheme will be a train wreck. As you can see on the pants application, the logo itself is just black and gold. What...are we really picking Saints colors here? And how similar is this to Toronto? I think the gold and black will be extremely over-bearing and nauseating if done wrong, and personally I've lost all trust in NBA officiating and creative services.

I almost wish they would just stick to red and white. I've loved the boldness and simplicity of the Hawks identity lately.
