Wow, Nike has turned the NBA into a fashion league. 10+ jerseys for each team, each with a more ridiculous name than the other. + New jerseys every season. 

Has nothing to do with team identity, only about making more money of dumb fans.

 

It also NBA fault for allowing that. If they got strickier restriction and don't want to make cash from sales, we would see max 4 (with Retro) uniforms per team. Remember how many completely unnecessary jerseys adidas added after Rev30 arrived? Look at NFL, nike is there, but teams got from 2 to 4 uniforms only.

I remember in 2015-16 season Heat and Cavs has 7-8 uniforms... So I think not only nike but also the NBA have fault in this situation.

Not bad. Decent use of black (which is really being emphasized in this new Nike stint). It could look really cool if done right.

 

But it's just not traditional Lakers. Pinstripe shorts huh?

The earned sets are exactly the same design as the city sets but are just a different colour. 

 

I'm not doubting you...but a) the Rockets will have a dark red City jersey, and a bright red Earned jersey that are the same design? and b) are all the colors on the city jersey incorporated into Earned jerseys? As in, will both of the Bucks' City and Earned jerseys feature yellow and gray?

Exactly, you can blame nike for a stupid names or their jersey cut and fabrics or even for a stupid black stripe on Lakers purple jersey, but you can't blame them for using the opportunity to earn money created by NBA.

Something about the way the letters and numbers crunched together on such a big body, especially without a side panel makes this uniform look like a pajama to Marc Gasol. 

 

Space the numbers from the wordmark PLEASE! Is the extra room for ads or something??

 

Ps. Took me 30mins to post this because of the pop up ads on this site! 😠😠😠😠

That color is what makes it look like pajamas to me! haha

I pray Nike don't get the MLB deal.

 

You know, I'm "FINE" with some of these extra designs and jersey editions, I just want tradition honored and PLEASE no Spongebob or TNMT jerseys. That's definitely where I cross the line. Well, before that point. But, you get the drift.

The latest rumor on r/Sixers about the grey City jersey actually makes some sense... I'be interesting to see if anyone else has heard of something like this.

 

And apparently this shirt is on Lids: https://www.lids.com/philadelphia-76ers-ben-simmons-nike-nba-mens-marled-player-t-shirt/21068128

 

 

I’d buy all the shirts if they were gray with last year’s cream-jersey mark in white or black (just word mark, no number/NOB)

 

That at one is OK, but would be way better if the black and white were reversed.

 More critically, the Pelican earned and City jerseys will both be white? With the same design? Nah.

The new Rockets city set is dark red. I have yet to see the earned set but as far as I know, all the earned sets are the same as the city sets just in different colour. The design stays the same.

I've heard somewhere that the Jazz's Earned™ set is going in similar pattern to that of the gold Statement™ set except for the fact that it is primarily green.

When these first came out people were screaming bloody murder but over time they became classics.

 

Lakers version if executed right could be the same.

This is from the mothership's article on the Twitter leak ...

 

NBA-New-Uniforms-Colours-City-Earned-201

 

A few thoughts ...

  • Pretty much confirms the fuschia colored Miami Vice jersey.
  • YEAH JAZZ IN GREEN!
  • Seems like @Teal was right about the Bucks in yellow.
  • I sure hope that green Celtics Earned Jersey is the gold St. Patrick's Day jersey.
  • There's waaaaaaaaay too many teams in gray -- I really hate this trend.

Just a heads up, Minnesota's City set is purple. Wanted to clear that up for you all.

The Lakers city set is by far and away my favourite of the city sets. Absolutely stunning.

They won't be.

Nothing Nike designs these days is meant to be "classic." It would need to stick around for over two years for it to take.

Looking closer at the list, it kind of looks like it could be a dark purple. A potential nod to the Prince? Purple rain? Or the Vikes I guess lol

I have not seen the Jazz city set so I cannot answer that question.

The Magic's alternate is more like what you are talking about. Black jersey, colored pinstripes. I wasn't sure about it at first when it was unveiled last year but I'm really into it now. Imagine if the original Magic jerseys did this? That'd be amazing.
