Granted, two different broadcasts so the usual caveats apply, but the Nike green looks shades lighter to me.

Same arena, same photographer.

Obviously this is still an imperfect way to compare, as there’s no way to know how/if the specific angles of the shots swayed the colors, and if there are any editing effects applied to the photos, but I think this is still a fairly accurate way to compare the two. Nike has their own specific color codes so it’s possible the two shades are slightly different, and I’d say the Nike uniforms do look a bit richer and brighter, but I don’t think it’s as pronounced as some are making it out to be. One thing I’ve noticed as well is that these new Nike uniforms don’t seem to show the sweat as much as the Adidas threads, so that could be be a part of it as well.

Thanks for doing that. I think I might be through the looking glass on this one; my gut feel is that the Nike Celtics are different shade but I'm also willing to accept that it could just be me.  

 

You could put last and this year's game jerseys next to each other, but who's actually going to do that?

That like the lakers. I believe adidas gold is dark. Nike gold damn near look neon-ish

Celtics and lakers are both looking completely off when it comes to color, totally agree with everyone. Is it just a uniform fabric issue, or did they actually change the color value? this could be a thing where they fix it next season, like FSU fixing their gold numbers after one season. Gotta admit the mistake if it looks this bad. i wonder if more casual fans notice or if its just us. it seems like such a stupid and avoidable mistake.

IIRC, the ones sold at the arena have the ads; jerseys sold elsewhere won't.

Another color on color game last night, this time between the Rockets and Mavs:

Two :censored:ty uniforms, but at least the colors contrasted well.

As long as the colors don’t clash, I don’t care if NBA teams move away from white vs. color. The NBA seemed to stop enforcing that rule many seasons back, might as well just drop it entirely.

Yeah, i am ok with the home team wearing white, but if the home one is color i prefer the away to be color as well.

I think it was a mistake for the league to let teams run amok and wear whatever they want, too many games look messy and amateurish.

I am the same way. I hate seeing white being worn by the visiting team.

I'm not sure what to think; I do like color vs. color, but in cases of a clash I don't know. I don't want visitors to wear white, but I also don't want both teams wearing tonally similar colors (no royal blue/kelly green, or white/yellow, or red/orange) or colorblindness-clashing colors.

From what i can tell, the new Celts green is alot brighter, especially compared to last year, glad to see im not going crazy.

Not sure how much stock I'd put in this comparison considering LeBron's skin tone is also different in both pics.

I wonder if this bag logo from the Suns team shop is any indication of a future change in the primary logo with the uniforms new emphasis on purple and orange. Current logo features black orange yellow and white. Just speculating.
