Tobias Harris is wearing a red sleeve and blue tights with the Pistons' "chrome" jerseys.

As a Pistons fan, I was hopeful that these were going to be sparingly used when they didn’t debut until weeks after the official release of the Statement jerseys (as I think they’re pretty terrible - the Spurs are the only team that can really pull off a gray uniform, IMO.)

 

Unfortunately, as of tonight’s game, I believe they’ve now been used 7 out of the last 8 games, and the just as bad (or worse) Motor City jerseys are yet to debut. 😪

 

The Pistons/Nike really messed up their jersey set outside the classic home and away.

I actually like them, but it's annoying seeing teams not use their color palette. It's a shame there's no Pistons red, Suns orange, OKC orange, Cavs yellow and blue.

So will the opposing team's uniforms be white?

Still a better logo and uniform than the current Clippers. 

 

The royal blue set is so, so nice. The logo still stinks, but not as bad.

I'm guessing they'll be gray.

Those all star unis aren’t much to look at, but I get it. They and their associated merch will sell like crazy, filling the monochrome gap. Who ever bought “team east” merch anyway? Plus I’ve been looking for an all-black Celtics hat so this may work out for me.

I don't love the All-Star jersey design, but let's not pretend that Adidas didn't churn out garbage that looked far worse than that.

6 of 7 in gray for the Pistons. All of those were with blue socks and tights.

Does anyone know how the all-star format is gonna work this year? And how will that effect the production of merch?

The Spurs would have a great and classic silver uniform if Nike would make these instead of the logo and the number that IMO is a mess.  

This is how Nike created it the first time (circa 2004) and did it right.  Not that hard to go back to it if they put their mindset to it.

There's no East vs. West. The top vote getters from each conference (currently Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant) will be named captains and they will hold a draft of eligible players. 

 

It could affect merch production because we won't know the teams until after the draft.

I am sure there will be two sets of jerseys available for purchase as well. I mean that's the smart thing to do, right?

Philly royal blue vs Boston green in London today. I suppose English audiences are more accustomed to teams stubbornly wearing color jerseys at the expense of maximum viewability, but still.

Did the rockets ever make an official release of their City Edition uniform?

 

They have appeared on the rockets team shop website and I saw them hanging on the rack at a local Academy
