Long Island Nets -- Ugliest Basketball Uniforms Ever?

Recommended Posts

I was flipping around the dial yesterday, reached NBATV and saw these in action.  My eyes still hurt.

These appear to be one-offs, but I couldn't find the story behind them in a quick search.

 

Also, the shorts are just as bad.  I took a few quick pictures of the screen with my phone that I may try to upload later.

P.S.  It was apparently a cancer awareness promotion.

 

Here is a picture of the full uniform in all of its glory(?).

I kinda like them, especially for a one off for cancer.

They're just a couple of color changes from being the Trivial Pursuit Nets...

Somehow still better than the 905’s jersey (still one of the dumbest names in all of sports, there’s literally 5 different numbers on the front of their jersey, why they couldn’t just be the Hamilton or wherever the play Raptors is beyond me)

I kinda like them. They are FAAAAR from the ugliest jerseys ever. Sure the execution of the patch work could be better, but I'll take these over other G-League one-off crap ...

Wow, I am woefully uninformed regarding G-League one-offs.

I was about to go on this whole thing about how could this be the Long Island Nets since they left in the 70's...then I realized I forgot there was a G League team on the Island.  

 

Maybe they're planning on wearing them to Jones Beach later since they look like terrible beachwear.

They look like something a D-list Batman villain would wear

Save for the advert on the stomach, these aren't too bad as a one-off. I wish there was a better color balance on the tops like the right leg of the shorts. But overall, they're not horrible. I mean, we've seen worse in pro sports in the 90s-00s. *cough*LA Burger Kings*cough*
