Im not sure if I missed something will their be another release of the "earned" sets later this season, or did our corporate overlords discontinue that merchandising poly.

A little better look at the Bucks...

I'd be curious about how this might look with red as the accent instead of blue. The whole identity would probably benefit IMO, but overall this is among the better city looks.

 

Also, why is Minnesota using "The Cities" instead of "Twin Cities?" Does EVERY team need a "The ____" jersey?

Also pretty clearly why they went with MSP to echo MPLS.

 

Or to just be stupid as Nike wanted.

I feel like the number and font should be gold. The white looks ... off. Maybe even the neck collar?

Was there ever any clarification on what the “special” warm-up gear was going to be?

The NBA's aesthetics have definitely lost their way under the direction of Nike. It's like they aren't trying with some of these uniforms.

Well...jerseys like that do exist LOL!  Honestly, since the city edition idea bin is already empty for most teams, it wouldn't even surprise me to start seeing crap like this at the NBA level.

Which I really think is more of the team's faults than Nike's fault ... and it's pretty easy to see which teams are mailing it in and those that aren't.

I'm definitely not putting the blame all on Nike. The team has to sign off on these.

Capitalism 101: competition improves product quality. Nike has a monopoly on the Big 4 sports leagues; thus, no competition. It might be more efficient to have the same people make everybody's uniforms, but it definitely decreases the quality of the looks.

well they don't have NHL so theres that. Also everyone is saying this is Nike's fault. Yes it partly is there fault but the NBA had to approve of the city uniform ideas and teams have final say over the design.
