The Cavs will be in black again tonight. Can't say I'm surprised.

Come on now. For years Ive seen people on here complain about the Cavs Wine road uni. And I've never understood it.
Honestly its in my top 5 all time unis, best colour combo, simple, no out there design elements. Its the same as the Celtics or Bulls classic designs, yet its not viewed as highly?!? Probably due to the success those teams had but still unfair.

 

What people don't understand, is, that the thing with the Celtics' and Bulls' unis is, that they were introduced in another era, when those designs could have very well been considered relevant to the times. What made them classic, was the success of those teams.

I agree with whoever said that if the current set wasn't associated with the post-Lebron loser phase, it'd be viewed at least somewhat more positively. I'm a fan of it, though I think the previous set was their best ever. I'd like to see that set translated into a less-shiny fabric. 

 

Not in the slightest. What summoned up such a reaction, was, that besides being such a ridiculously bland design, it also replaced a set that was one of the best in the league and all-around excellent. If Lebron had stayed, I would've been equally outraged by this uniform change.

To put in perspective, the (possible) final ad-free NBA match-up looks like this.

I know that the sleeved jerseys are said to be gone, but. 

 

Wouldn't be surprised if the Cavs insisted on keeping their black sleeved jerseys

Nike will not be making sleeved jerseys for any team. Period. That's already been confirmed.

This is being really nitpicky, but that image is from last year's Finals. Technically both team's jerseys in this year's edition had slight differences, with the Cavs' jerseys featuring the gold championship tab, and the Warriors' jerseys featuring the Nate Thurmond memorial band. So here's an image from tonight's game, showing an accurate representation of what could be the final ad-free NBA uniform matchup:

Will there be a big 30-team reveal of the Nike jerseys like the one Adidas is doing for the NHL?

Those championship hats are butt. 

 

It's almost like Adidas wanted to make the worst looking hat possible so that the champion would want to send the winning caps to Africa as well.
