Really wish the Hawks volt was closer to yellow than green. This particular shade looks like the slime from Nickelodeon

Wait. So those x-mas uniforms are confirmed and that catalog is legit?

So the Rockets just ignore everything fans and PLAYERS want again?!? I thought the whole uniform cut couldn't be changed. It didn't work with the loops on the jersey and therefor needed a new design completely. So now they found a way to make it work? They scrap the closest thing to our history(the red+yellow alt even though i dont like them-too much yellow) with what was rumored as the same jersey but in red and gray? And they just throw at us a completely yellow CLUTCH CITY jersey that they will wear a few times a year and expect it to satisfy the nostalgia crowd?? They still don't get that yellow should only be a trim color and keep going overkill on it!

FUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...at least they won convincingly last night. But, we remain one of the worst looking teams in all of sports since 1996.

^ Must be replacing their current navy one. You know, for merchandising purposes.

Something else I noticed.

What is with the chevrons? This could be disastrous for the Hawks.

Also, the throwbacks for next season

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

Stretch unis are holidays/Latin nights/st patricks/etc.
Yeah it says stretch jerseys have the same trim as the normal home/road jersey so usually just means a wordmark change.

Question for those "in the know"...if you had an Adidas SLD login would you see the things that are blacked out TBD?

I see, thanks. Also whatsup with the new rockets jerseys? Looks like the old ones are still it just with a less-2003-cut to them

While I would have preferred the Hawks stay away from volt altogether, this shade definitely wouldn't be my first choice. It's too dark and looks more like green than electric yellow. If they had to do volt, this would be nicer:

For those who don't wanna click the link this is a summation of sorts Le7u8bT.jpg

its weird though, the raptors in the "jersey" portion of the catalogue have 2 alternates, like we'e been hearing. In the above image tho for alternate 2 they are not shown...

It may very well be this color, or Adidas' version. Like Metallic, however, that's a really hard color to translate in CMYK/RGB.

Ha! The Suns finally removed the sleeves on their orange jersey.

I'm disappointed the BULLS alt would have sleeves! Once they finally got the alternate right, adidas would start screwing up that beautiful thang. (I know they already wore them at some parts of the season, but still...)

And the Rev30 pattern looks different. Much better!

So basically, our uniforms aren't even changing other than getting rid of the best part (the baseball-style scripts). This rebrand is so half-assed, they just need to start over.

Also noticed no championship tags? May be nothing if last years style guide didn't include them either

^I was wrong, was probably looking at the swingmans or something...

OT the mavs alt shorts remind me of the new browns pants. God I hope thats not the direction that all the new looks are going in

SO...i don't know if it is the style of the art, but it looks like the cut of the uniform is actually normal now and same width as the Spurs as you can see.

Compare that to:

And i think maybe, the loops have all been adjusted. The shorts loops look sharper. Where the loops on the shorts of this year meet at a single point, they seem to come to 2 points now. As far as the jersey, i am not sure what they did. Made the neck line thinner and just removed primary color material from the sleeve? The shoulder loops come closer together starting at the chest level and come very close to meeting at its height.

It makes you wonder what they will do with the wordmark. Sure, the xmas unis look fine with a thin cursive script that is angled, but for the normal wordmark, it seems they have to make it even smaller to fit or possible tilt it like the alternates currently do.

Shouldn't the Kings' powder blue throwback have the player's name underneath the number?

Also, way to go, Nuggets. Making Aachen Bold look like a superior design choice by comparison!

My favorite part about the Christmas NBA jerseys is that the NBA logo on each is surrounded by what is supposed to look like a red wax stamp for old-fashioned letters. Adidas did an unusually incredible job on these. Innovative, unique, cool, without being obnoxious and ugly.

Wait where did you see the red and gray alt and confirmation of an all yellow clutch city??

Also love the Christmas uniforms. Adidas got it right for once.

Check out this navy Cavs jersey in the swingman section. Gold numbers/letters with a 'Cleveland' wordmark. Hmm...

Interestingly, in the authentic section, the alternate still has the wine number outlined in gold.
