Gordon Hayward in the Celtics new uni. Good look at clover on the waistband.

If the waistband clover is the only adjustment for the Celtics on the new Nike template I'll love their Association and Icon Editions. It'll be interesting to see if/hoe radical their Athlete's Mindset and Community Inspired Editions are, though.

I don't like the Wizards' stripe width (or height) on the Nike jersey.  I think it'd look better like this, IMO:

EDIT: did I alter an official pic or was it someone's rendering/speculation?  I thought it was the former and made changes to look better, but if it was just someone's rendering, the stripes on the actual jersey might look less off..

The clover was already on the waistband with the previous uniforms, so really it looks like the C's didn't make any changes other than adjusting to Nike's template. Also, it looks like they'll be going with the ventilated waistband instead of the more conventional version, joining the likes of the Blazers, Pacers, and Wizards (so far). I suspect teams like the Cavs and Knicks will follow suit, and probably some others as well.

I don't really have any news on the actual designs of the Athlete's Mindset and Community uniforms, but I would expect one of them to be black (probably replacing the current green and black alternate). This shirt seems to suggest a black uniform, anyways:

The other shirts from that product line have matched up perfectly with the uniforms leaked and/or released so far, so I'd say a black uniform for the C's is pretty likely.

People are really going to use this vernacular?

 

Puke.

That's what makes me tentative about the rest of their set -- the execution of a black Celtics uniform could go only one of two ways.

new sneak peek at Denver's new uniform.

 

Or just a close up on the numbers.

There is no way Adidas didn't fall bass akwards into that design element.

 

That’s how uniform design is done, my friend. You just pin a bunch of ideas on a board, then you throw a handful of darts and combine the ones you hit into a single jersey.

The official Nike rendering appears to have the higher stripe almost touch the bottom of the v-neck.

But the photos of actual jerseys place the stripe in a similar location to last year's design.

So, chalk it up to a sloppy rendering from Nike/NBA/Wizards.  

 

Lukas points out that the Nike number font appears to be smaller than the Adidas font...

 

...but I don't trust the proportions on that rendering.  I suspect that the font size hasn't changed much either.

If I had to choose one thing I don't like about the switch to Nike, it's probably the truncated stripes on the back of every teams' shoulders. But one thing that seems to bother me more and more with each unveiling is how every team now has a spot specifically designated for a logo on their waistband. Chicago's looks God awful (there was nothing wrong with the stripes, though the stars are a nice touch). And look at Cleveland... I mean "CLE"? That's just putting it there for the sake of eating up space. Couldn't have been the sword logo? The state outline? Anything would have been better than that.

Crossed swords would have looked a million times better than just using "cle". Even the C logo alone would have been better. Missed opportunity.

I think the Chicago stars on the Bulls' waistband is too twee for this world.

No no no.  I mean that was never even on the dart board, there was no mock up, there was no concept.  It just happened.  The laid out the uniform, produced it, and then someone was like, "OMG cray! It makes a W!"
