NBA Changes 2017-18

Recommended Posts

Hornets have no sponsor to date, presumably Spectrum/Lowes would be it, if they choose to do so.

 

Also, while I'm not shocked, I am glad there is a throwback uniform, but I'm interested to see if that is an alternate or full time teal. I'm hoping for the former.

Jordan brand again presumably 

 

I doubt it.  There's no need for Jordan brand to double up. My guess would be BofA, BB&T, Duke Energy, Sonic Auto.

The side panel stripes referencing the bridge is clever AF. Everything else is hot garbage.

 

Can you clarify for those of us not familiar with the Brooklyn bridge? It just looks like odd striping to me, but I'm unfamiliar

Just Google images of the bridge. It'll be clear when you see it.

Fixed your post.

I think Utah gets a pass because they're using that ad space to sponsor a charity.

The white on the side of that jersey is referencing the space between the towers of the bridge.

That looks real to you guys? 

 

A real prototype, if anything.  Doesn't look counterfeit fake.

The T-Wolves will "welcome" their first round pick Justin Patton on Facebook today at 1:30, Central.  It'll be interesting to see whether they give him a jersey to display.

They won't be giving him a new jersey. This came up yesterday, and it was confirmed by a couple sources close to the team that it will be the old jersey, sadly.

 

There was also subsequent trustworthy information that it will be at least another couple of weeks before the official unveiling of the new design. Maybe after the Summer League is completed?

That what I've heard too, because the adidas contract doesn't official get dropped until about midway through summer league

I just read Summer League ends July 17; I'm guessing we'll see new jerseys by the end of July.

What about the WNBA season? Is it possible the reveal would have to wait until that league wraps up?

Great question.  I think NBA jerseys will be unveiled during the WNBA season, and WNBA jerseys will likely be unveiled during the upcoming NBA season.  I do think the WNBA season pushed Nike's global retail launch to October.

Right, except for the red ad that will ruin everything. <_<
