But the shoulder trim goes all the way down now (at least on the front). That's a good thing.

Yep, there are really only a couple of design changes, and those are both just small adjustments to fit Nike's template. The armhole trim on the front now extends below the armpit before being truncated, just like all of the other Nike NBA jerseys that include armhole trim, and the waistband of the shorts now features this logo:

Aside from those changes, the only other notable thing I can see from that 2K screenshot is that it looks like the Knicks will be going with the ventilated waistband, rather than the more conventional version. They'll join the running list of the Blazers, Celtics, Pacers, and Wizards as the only teams we've seen go with that style of waistband (so far).

Back then I really wanted them to change to a more traditional look. But now I gotta say, this was the best we've ever looked.

I might flip a table if this is what the Warriors actually go with for a throwback. I still love the "The City" jerseys, but having the actual San Francisco name on the jersey right now seems tasteless.

Hey, Mr. Lacob...*clears throat* THEY. PLAY. IN. OAKLAND.

Not for long.

Probably just a fashion jersey, but what are the odds of this being one of the four official jerseys?  There's the white, gold, purple and throwback, right?  What about the Hollywood Nights, is that still around?

Well remember the South Bay Lakers have blue in their color scheme so maybe it's their merchandise

It's funny looking back how everyone was hyped when they were removing the black and now years later realizing, it was actually better.

More photos of the Wizards' uniforms that reveal the accurate proportions of the stripes, the size of the #s, etc.

I much prefer the knicks current set to the ones they used before, especially those washed out shades of orange and blue they used.

Who ever did the digital rendering was awful, had the proportions all wrong. They look so much better in person.

Also those shoes look comically large to me lol

There are 3 shades of blue, plus yellow. The only white I see is the swoosh.

 

I’m scratching my head trying to figure out if you’re just trolling, or if you don't actually see the white numbers, letters, and stripe on the side trim.

If the type had been solid orange or black with orange trim or something, it would have been a nice set. As it was, though, the white and orange lettering and numbers on a uniform that was otherwise devoid of white looked a bit disjointed. It takes a deft hand to pull off using a color in the graphics that’s not used elsewhere. This one didn't work very well.

 

With that said, I think their current set is flawed as well. I like the contrast waistband, but most of the rest is a bit underwhelming, and the silver is unnecessary. I think I’d prefer the classic set from before the black was added, but with the contrast waistband and maybe a more signature side design on the shorts, or possibly a black-free version of the side trim they wore in the black era instead.

It would have been interesting if the Knicks had used orange letting with black outlines.  Probably would have looked pretty good, and much like the Florida Gators' blue basketball unis.  

 

I think the logo with the black drop shadow was awesome (and maybe taken for granted).  It just seemed to work better than the logo with gray/silver shadows.

I'm trying to watch the NBA Africa game but it looks like they're playing in a movie theater. Why so dark?

At least when they had black in the marks, they utilized it confidently across the identity. The same can’t be said about the grey. It’s one of those colors that you need to use a lot of to make an impact, otherwise it only functions to muddy up the crispness of color against white.
