I think this maxes it out. Some teams will have 6 jerseys this year with throwbacks and playoff jerseys. I can live with that. 

 

Which plenty of teams had under Adidas, too. It’s changing 2-4 of those jerseys per year that’s the big problem.

It has gray.  They just faked us out by making us think gray was the dominant color. 

Oh lol. Barely saw the jerseys and couldn’t even tell there was grey

I wonder what a Lakers' earned jersey would look like.  Hopefully we'll be able to find out next season.

Be careful what you wish for. A black version of these seems pretty likely:

Love it. Hopefully we get a full Irish rainbow set next season.

The outline on the letters should be black.

Agreed. Are they going for a team Canada look? Either way one of these would have been infinitely better. DolzKM-U8AAf9vg?format=jpg&name=medium

90% of this new crop is fantastic.  The Bucks, the Celtics, the Blazers, the Heat, Sixers, Thunder, Pacers  . . . all the best those teams have looked since Nike took over. 

 

Fire emojis seem appropriate here.

I actually wouldn’t mind a black version of that jersey. I liked the non-sleeves adidas version too. I’d argue why this purple gets so much hate, but I think we’ve exhausted that point in these forums.

I think a black version could look fine if the color scheme was limited to black/gold/purple like the Hollywood Nights set, but I could very well see them just swapping the purple and black, and leaving the yellow/white trim and the wordmarks/numbers the same. If that were the case then it’d look like a jumbled mess, just like the Statement set IMO.

The thing that bugs me about the current Lakers set is that they just don’t look like the Lakers to me. The two purple jerseys diverge WAY too far from the traditional Lakers set for my liking, which is annoying. But even the home gold set still just looks off to me. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is, but it’s distracting. 

 

 

Actually, this whole Lebron on the Lakers thing still feels like bizarro world to me in general. The new uniform set just emphasizes it a lot more. Not sure I’m going to get used to this one any time soon.

I think y'all are letting your nostalgia goggles cloud your judgment on the Bucks' alts this season. Are they quirky and interesting? Absolutely. But if a new team introduced something like those people would be tearing them to shreds.

The Bucks' Earned Jerseys might be the best jerseys they've worn in 25 years. Incredible homage.

 

The City Jerseys are unique if kinda ugly. The yellow is jarring,

Feel like if Earned jerseys are also Christmas jerseys, a hypothetical Lakers one has to be white.

If the Bucks' jersey was a full-time jersey and not an alt then ... yes ... I'd have a problem with it. Being a limited use alt (half the season) I see no problem with it. It's fun, quirky and it works for what is.

As I said previously nothing wrong with having standard consistent home and away.

 

When it comes to alternates even if its 4 of them, let them go crazy and have fun.

 

I hate purist

Here are a couple of tidbits from today's Uni Watch ...

 

Quote

Meanwhile, as long as we’re talking about the NBA, here’s a pair of tidbits that a source passed along to me yesterday:

• You know how the Thunder currently have their team name on the white uni and their city name on the blue uni? They’re planning to flip that next season.

• Orlando’s primary colored uniform (i.e., Icon) is currently blue. Next season it will be black.

Now that the Earned uniforms have been unveiled, here’s a look at all of the Christmas Day matchups:

 

Knicks vs. Bucks:

Rockets vs. Thunder:

Celtics vs. Sixers:

Warriors vs. Lakers:

Jazz vs. Blazers:

Celtics/Sixers is the best of the bunch IMO, followed by Jazz/Blazers. It’s really too bad the Blazers couldn’t wear their red Earned uniforms to create a red vs. green matchup against the Jazz, but also good on the league for recognizing the colorblind issue and having the Blazers wear white instead.
