The arm hole trim being cut short IS actually an adidas style as they have it done with 3 of their college teams last season, Louisville, Cincinnati, and Baylor. Also dont forget these jersey were designed 2 years ago for the purpose of being debuted last year. As for my opinion on the jersey, am I disappointed, No. Its what I expect from Paul Lukas description 2011 offseason saying it will look plain like the Cavs jersey. I have no problem with the solid color waistband nor the short trim armhole. My grips are the NEW New York wordmark making the jersey look like a cheap knockoff you can find from a street vendor, and unnecessary grey not being needed. Cleveland has navy in their logo and its not being used in their uniforms, therefore grey didn't have to be used. Did I want more, yes, because I think their uniform are too plain. Am I disappointed, no, because it could have been alot worst by letting Adidas have complete control over the uniform design. FYI: As someone said New York wordmark on their uniforms are too established for them to be like everyone else and put KNICKS on the front of their uniforms. Thats like the Lakers putting Los Angeles on their road jersey. Yes they both have been done before but both the Lakers and Knicks go for the wordmark that is more established, popular, recognizable in their long historic years as a franchise. Why change it? The "Once a Knick, Always A Knick" is something plenty of former Knicks have said Marcus Camby, Kurt Thomas and Larry Johnson. So i have no problem with that but I would have like to see a slogan all New Yorker us to connect with the Knicks... "Go NY, Go NY, Go!"
