Heard from a Person Who Knows Things today that production on the City edition jerseys is delayed. They were supposed to be released at retail this month, but that's not happening now. 

Hell you can't even get a lot of the statement jerseys, Celts one isn't available. Nike and the NBA have done a really bad job with this. Hope they will be ready for the teams to wear. They gotta be introduced to the public soon I would think...

No Christmas jerseys this year. 

So they're playing naked? Just kidding. Are they wearing their own teams' jerseys or reusing last year's or what?

They can't reuse last year's.

No. The emphasis at least this year is on the switch to Nike jerseys and four "editions."

Thanks.  For a second I was thinking that the Christmas games were special like the All Star Game seeing how we're used to seeing special jerseys worn (or mock-ups made for all teams, even those not playing on Christmas) but yeah, it's just a regular season game, after all.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Nike brings them back eventually. It seems like the Community jerseys will be featured on Christmas tho ...

For the life of me I can't figure out how to get an image to post on here, but Jeremy Lamb wore a black leg sleeve and tights last night, while the rest of the Hornets wore white. This is the first time that I have noticed anything like that with any team or individual this season.

You’ll have to use imigur or photobucket from now on. Inserting photos was too much money

Thanks - I was using flickr but I'll have to do an account with one of those two.

how to ruin a good uniform

At least with the white shirt he's accurately representing how Hornets fans are going to wear this jersey.

Apparently the City hats that were on ChampsSports.com were released too early; they've been taken down.

I see at least 5 problems with what WAS a good uniform ...

 

1) White shirt under the jersey.

2) Jordan logo.

3) Sponsor logo.

4) Thick pinstripes.

5) Form-fitting cut jersey.

 

If I was going to rank those by offense the sponsor logo would be #1. But, I'm too lazy to go back and rank them.

I normally don't mind the compression pants/colored socks, etc...but with this uniform, white socks and black shoes should be mandatory. I wish they would go through that extra effort for throwbacks, kinda like the lakers did the short shorts...for a half...a few years ago.

Someone found the Pacers’ City uniform on 2K:

Looks like the yellow vertical stripe might have the sublimated checkerboard pattern that was on the bill of the City edition hat. The numbers are excessively big, but overall I like the design of these much better than the primary uniforms. Anyways, I’m just glad they’re finally going with some sort of racing influence again, even if it is just for an alternate.

 

Edit- And here’s Conrad with a look at (almost) all of the City edition jerseys:

Teal or purple lettering would have made this so much better.

The Hornets had a good Buzz City uniform last year all they have to do is remove the sleeves now we get this BS. Same goes with Memphis completely bastardize their uniform for the sake of a practice jersey.

Good:

Blazers

Bulls

Celtics

Clippers

Knicks

Nets

Sixers

Warriors

 

Bad:

Cavs

Hornets

Nuggets

Pelicans (is that an error with the numbers?)

Pistons

Thunder

 

So close:

Lakers (purple...add purple...)

Wizards (white number looks terrible)

Wolves (green and blue need to be somewhere)

Mavericks (just put DALLAS on there, not the abbreviation for Delta Airlines)

 

Conrad's concepts (many of which were spot on) are better than the actual jerseys in a few cases.  Might have to get a Magic jersey, as it could be one of those "cool/odd/ugly collectibles" in a few years.

 

 

AND DAMMIT NIKE, JUST UNVEIL THEM ALREADY.
