Gonna elaborate on this a bit more:

 

I wish they kept the old font/wordmark. The 6 looks like a b. And the new wordmark is boring.  The sublimation on the black alt gives off a chainmail vibe and works so much better than the Hawks stupid triangles. SAC jersey is still dumb and pointless.

 

 

This is still my favorite kings jersey though.

I didn't mind that set, but I had a big problem with the wordmark they used, because it was literally the exact same mark the Sacramento Monarchs of the WNBA used. In fact, I think the Monarchs actually used that mark a year before the Kings did. That really wasn't a good look for a team who had been trashed on just a year or two prior by Shaq who called them the "Sacramento Queens" and said they were "The best WNBA team he ever faced."

Love the new look for the Kings, but we all have minor gripes. My big two are that one uniform isn't different enough from another to seem necessary. The other problem is that the stripes at the bottom of the shorts don't go all the way around. Fix that and make the "SAC" jersey gray to separate it from the other purple jersey and you have a great set. Love the black jersey as the uni it's paying homage to is my favorite Kings look ever.

The subtle hints of powder blue are definitely an hommage to the inagural 86-90 era, in which they were still using KC era powder blue.

 

Their new colors are definitely an hommage to the current era with a few differences.

 

 

They had powder blue in KC? I thought those just started with the move to Sacramento.  I always saw darker blue in the old photos of Sam Lacey, Phil Ford etc.

Yeah, I think I made a mistake. The motherboard images of the Kansas City Kings logo uses the same shade of blue as the original Sacremento Kings, even after the move. I thought powder blue was always there.

The NBA sleeve jerseys would look a lot better if they were long sleeved

What will be interesting is that someday the Cavs will probably celebrate this championship by wearing black sleeve throwbacks.

Since there's no trim on the sleeve cuffs or shoulders, they could probably do a sleeveless throwback and the effect would be the same. The sleeves aren't an integral part of the design (of which I'd say is the black and oversized chest logo).

I can't believe a title was won in a sleeved uniform. Wow

 

Me either. I hate that but I am happy for the fans of the Sleeveland Cavaliers

Outside of the Super Bowl (which isn't allowed anyway), a Game 7 really is the most unorthodox game for a team to wear an alternate. But like you all said... that thing now hallowed.

I'm curious how the sleeve jerseys in Game 7 came about.  We know lebron hates them so I can't imagine the cavs would force them on him in the biggest game of his career and the team's history.  Could Adidas or the NBA have forced them on the cavs and they either didnt or couldn't push back? Was this one last ditch effort by adidas to sell some sleeved jerseys before Nike took over

LeBron got a bigger jersey (It's not skintight like before, it's more like a QB jersey in the NFL), he actually has been requesting them in the Finals

Yeah I noticed that his sleeves look looser than I'm used to seeing. I was wondering why he hasn't tore off part of it yet. At least they seemed to fix the fitting issue in regards to shooting. I've played in sleeved jerseys before and it's fact (at least in my case) that it impacts the way your arms move in the shooting motion. Just not comfortable after being used to sleeveless. I'm happy to see there's progress with them but I still think it's ugly af. Can't believe these will now be all time jerseys. I'm sure Adidas is smiling from ear to ear today and all summer.

The Cleveland Browns' seamstress made some alterations to the sleeves to make them have a looser fit around the shoulders. And LeBron, being as superstitious as he is, made the team wear the jerseys again after their win in Game 5.

The Browns' seamstress did the sleeves?  Nobody on the Cavs' staff could do it?
