You're right. I can see it in those pics. Idk what was going on with my eyes.

Agreed...Even a green stroke around the numbers would do wonders for these new Minnesota uniforms.

 

Yup...those Minny unis look horrible. Not liking the Spurs new wordmark in action either.

No pics, but the Celtics uniforms looked especially green on my TV last night.

 

 

I noticed that too.  The green looks really bright.

Is Washington the only team without a jersey sponsor yet?

Nope, there are 13 teams total who’ve (thankfully) yet to sign jersey advertisement deals. Those teams are the Blazers, Bulls, Clippers, Grizzlies, Hornets, Mavericks, Pacers, Pelicans, Rockets, Spurs, Suns, Thunder, and the one that you mentioned, the Wizards. Unfortunately that could change at any time though, as teams are free to sign deals during or after the season.

Looks like it's still there, but there are drop shadows only on the numbers AFAIK, not on the monocolor NOB.  Look for the red drop shadow on the left of the number 7.  From GettyImages:

Also, the new Wolves set looks muddy. It's so dark and desperately needs more green.

100% agree.

Some more examples of teams wearing team-colored socks and tights:

My problem with the Spurs' jerseys are twofold ...

 

1) The wordmark doesn't match the numbers. 

2) The numbers on the front are MUCH smaller than the last jerseys and just look bad.

 

The jerseys would look much better with a matching number. Though, I saw no problem with their last jerseys.

The Spurs bizzarely attempted to look more classic and old school by dropping the Eurostile they’ve had since the ABA and going generic block. It’s faux-retro and it’s bad, the Spurs previous uniforms managed to combine classic with the 70’s where the franchise has its origins, much like Eurostile does. This reeks of update for the sake of update

I'm surprised we haven't seen color on color yet.  All home teams have worn white so far.

Actually the Pacers and Kings both wore their “Icon” uniforms at home yesterday, but the road teams in those games (the Nets and Rockets) both wore white. In the Pacers’ game, it couldn’t have been color on color because the Nets’ black and dark grey uniforms obviously wouldn't have provided necessary contrast with the Pacers’ navy. The Rockets probably could’ve worn their red uniforms, and in fact they did just that last season against the Kings, who were in purple at home:

But, alas, the Rockets chose to wear white this time instead. I’m sure we’ll see plenty of color on color as the season progresses, and as the home teams start mixing it up a bit more.

You're right.  I was just scrolling through photos and didn't realize which team was the home team.  Looking forward to some more color on color games this year.

The fact that it’s come up like this is a good example of a design element that’s not executed very well. Some design elements are indeed meant to be subtle and discoverable, but this is meant to be seen, and it’s hard to see.

The Suns/Blazers game last night was a really nice looking matchup:

The Suns’ throwbacks looked really nice in action, and matched up incredibly well against the Blazers’ refreshed black uniforms. And as a Blazers fan, the result was pretty sweet tooB). Also, the Suns had special shooting shirts to go with their throwbacks:0D46E078-8DBD-45B6-A475-9A13FE2AE5B1.jpeg.3bb36a9da1cd1268ae7c5742752d9e10.jpegA1F2C015-12EF-4291-99AA-871B44401C66.jpeg.bb4d114d9f69e1252d34958878a489dd.jpeg

So Charlotte just put out their uniform schedule here. One thing worth note is that the undergarments are officially part of the uniform, and aren't attached to one particular set. If you check the teal set, for example, there are games with matching teal tights, but also games with white tights, but it doesn't look like the switching happens until December.

Any idea when we will see the “Statement” uni’s on court?

Nike seems to be doing a slow roll out of what's been made, so for the first month or so, we'll see each team's regular color and white (or icon and association for name sticklers), and get the statement uniforms around Thanksgiving.
