let's be honest. how much do "casual" fans even matter anymore?

Considering the majority are casual fans I’d say a lot. It’s really only the people here And a few of the die yards that are able to identify every jersey teams wear.

I’ve never noticed this until now but something that has bothered me SO much about the pacers city edition uniforms is how the stripe is separated by the belt.

Only picture I could find but in game and up close the white is a pretty big separation and it just kills the uniforms for me

same thing happened to the ones from before but they’re a bit more acceptable because it’s not as noticeable as a 2 inch white space

I think my point is, that casual fans won't stop watching because of all these new uniforms. they'll look at them and be like, those are stupid, and keep watching.

I'd love for the NBA to rethink or redo the way they do memorial badges, etc., especially how that the space they used to do on is taken by ads. I hate the black stripe. Why not something else? Or somewhere else?

 

In particularly with the Stern memorial, I feel like they should have done something on the back neckline alongside the NBA logo.

 

What else could you do on a basketball uniform?

The Pistons back in 2009 had a memorial patch for their previous owner, Bill Davidson, on the back collar of their jerseys.

It was intended to be permanent but only lasted for a season or two if memory serves, I believe until the team was sold to Tom Gores in 2011. I guess long term the league would have made them remove it anyway with the implementation of the gold championship patches on the rear collars.

If the collar and arm holes (?) had the same tricolor as the chest, then I’d like this more. 

so much better than the black and white. San Antonio used to have a branding scheme and they ditched it lol. too cartoony people say but i will forever love this look

Did any teams have the black stripe on their jerseys last night? I didn't notice any yet.

Rockets and wizards also had them last night. It’s safe to assume all teams did, it’s not like it’s hard to stitch some black fabric to a jersey.

i just find it strange how it’s simply all black. I would think there would be a DS initial on it. Maybe it’s because he never liked advertisements on jerseys?

Interesting matchup with the suns and knicks too.

essentially nothing is wrong with the matchup but for some reason that Knicks blue looked weird on the suns court

Are you new here?

"Petty as hell" could be the tagline for this hobby.

The quality of Nike's NBA jerseys template come really...cheap (and sterile).

I honestly think they look nice. Other then the fact that trimming is really iffy with these jerseys like how they’re cut halfway through for arm holes. But I much prefer their “canvas” over the saggy or silky material we’ve seen in the past

I've definitely come to like the material but miss the properly done arm trip and side paneling, rather than the overlay of the paneling cutting off the arm trim and the Nike arm mobility cut.

The material is definitely a big step up from the Adidas Rev 30. The tiny holes in the fabric always struck me as more akin to something a cash-strapped high school athletic department would bulk order from an Eastbay catalog than something that belonged on an authentic jersey in a professional sports league.

I got a Nike Ben Simmons jersey for Christmas with the authentic material. In my opinion, it is definitely the best fabric quality I have seen used for a basketball jersey. Breathable and lightweight, and the difference from the Adidas jersey fabric is certainly noticeable (and better).
