Am I the only one who doesn't hate the armholes?

 

I don’t hate them. I think the way the trim tucks under the back panel up top is really elegant and well done.

 

The way the trim just stops at the side seam or panel, however, is the polar opposite.

 

I suppose I half hate them.

Observations/thoughts:

- Strange they changed the name on the back. Black on the white looks odd. White on red looks great since that's how it was for the first two titles.

- I think BULLS is bigger than it was on the adidas jerseys.

- Worried about the shorts.

- Considering how married they are to the Jordan years, I'm surprised they went red at home.

- Still, a pretty clean look. Not bad at all. 

 

I like the updated name. Two-color names always looked off because the scale of the name trim was so small compared to the number and wordmark trim, whereas the single-color letters have a nice scale relationship with the outlines on the numbers.

 

The back of the white jersey does have a Heat vibe, though.

The "Association" jersey is the home jersey - so the white one.

 

The "Icon" jersey is the road jersey - blue.

 

You mean they said the association will be worn at home?  Because the straight "association = white, icon=road" just isn't true as a generalization.  If it's what the team said, then I just missed that.

FWIW I really don't like this.  I like seeing a game photo or highlight and immediately knowing where it's taking place, just by the uniform colors.

 

really hope the Lakers wear white on the road against dark-color home teams, rather than ever see their yellow worn in some other arena (which has probably already happened.)

I meant "home" as in colors only.  You're correct, the Association can be worn at home or road.

Seeing the Swoosh on a classic like this, with all it's history, just doesn't feel right. I didn't really mind it on the other jerseys that have been revealed.

Meh. Not a fan of the drop shadow.

 

 

I like the "Brotherly Love" script on the bottom. As for this Stub Hub patch...eh!!!! The oversized Nike swoosh..tad obnoxious
Nothing you can do about it, all the jerseys will have some ad on them.

Every time I see a new Sixers jersey, I can just say to myself "well it could be MUCH MUCH worse!" ?
These from the early 90s...wow these were painfully bad!

Those jerseys, particularly the RWB stars, have always reminded me of a tube of Aquafresh.

Another look at Lakers from NBA2K18 (Twitter).

I was hoping for a bigger change...

So the Bulls are planning on wearing red primarily at home now? That sucks

 

I'm not a fan at all of this "association" and "icon" and "wear whatever, wherever" crap. White at home, dark on the road was never a broken system and thus never needed fixing.

"I like the "4 Stars" on the waistband."

 

In a vacuum, yes, but looks bad paired with the jersey IMO.

I mentioned it earlier that the shorts would've looked good with the Bull on the waistband, but you're right in that it's redundant. The 4 stars are a nice reprieve from the usual primary/secondary logos we've seen. It also makes the Bulls uniforms come off as more authentic.
