Is it just me or are there more guys wearing white tights this season? Is that a Nike thing? In the past Cavs players would wear black tights with their white home jerseys. But now they pair it with white and create a leotard-esque effect. Just saw a Celtics highlight where they wore white tights under their green jerseys as well.

All of the teams have been wearing white socks and tights during the preseason. Nike’s placed a greater emphasis on team-colored socks, tights, and other accessories, so I would guess Nike wanted teams to refrain from wearing the team-specific colors until the regular season. As far as the Cavs go, I would expect them to keep wearing white tights with their white uniforms this season, unlike the black tights they’d been wearing the last few seasons. And on the road they’ll go with socks and tights that match the uniforms, like so:8E9D512D-57B6-45B5-8721-4615E2E3DD82.thumb.jpeg.1078c1702df239cf185f7a4c59a086c4.jpeg

My connection with team claims it'll be the MLK jersey.

Huh.  I had thought that was just going to be a one-year deal.

Knicks are going to get really hot playing in black sweatpants. :wacko:

Right, why not show the matching shorts?

And if they somehow are not available , why tuck the jersey in those warmup pants, looks ridiculous

Another fad that doesn't help anything play wise. I remember Jordan wearing the knee brace on the calf and all my friends and I doing that. He folded the top down revealing another color and we did the same.

Sorry for the tiny image, but the NBA store in Manhattan used the wrong number/NOB font for the Pacers and possibly more teams on a display.

The flagship store of the NBA can't get their own gear right. SMH

I'm more shocked that there's Hornets gear there. Last time I went I couldn't even get a t-shirt.

To try something new?  To be innovative?  To try to draw at least a tiny bit of attention to an otherwise basically forgettable franchise?

Are those lights in the floor? or are are they very concentrated, intense green lights focused on those small areas? I would think they are lights but I can't imagine the T-Wolves getting permission from the NBA to hhave certain parts of the floor not be wooden.

This is most likely projection mapping the ATL Hawks do something similar down here for floor intros

 

 

EDIT: I did 2 seconds of research and found that it is lit from below!

It's interesting me too, if G-league will have perforated numbers like in NBA, why Nike wasn't do that for Grizzlies? Forgot about it or no nobody cares?
