Celtics shorts WTF

The end of an era. Some will be thankful and others will mourn its passing...

Personally, I agree with a previous poster that the Celtics shouldn't be toyed with this way. It's like the Yankees... the brand is rock solid and transcends fads.

At the very least it will be interesting to see the general reaction to the entire alt uniform the club has come up with.

no way. call me a traditionalist all you want, but those are terrible.

i wouldn't mind a celts alternate per se, but black? it's never been one of their colours so why now all of a sudden?

n.w.a. was popular 14 years ago, can we move past sports teams trying to go gangsta? even the l.a. kings gave up the ghost.

how about incorporating some orange for a third jersey, aka real irish colours.

Black is in the team's logo. It's part of the outline around the leprechaun and his shoes.

Just because a team adds black doesn't mean it's trying to go gangsta.

It's definitely a debatable point. I'll present my side.

Until the 90's the Raiders were one of the few pro teams to prominently use the color black. N.W.A., and other gangsta rap groups heavily rocked Raiders and Kings gear as part of a generally black-colored wardrobe. The Raiders and Kings were adopted by other gangsta rap groups and gangs themselves. Kids followed suit, and this was one factor, arguably a main factor, in the flood of pro teams adding black to their color schemes.

And my bad, the leprechaun is indeed wearing black pants, but they are the Celtics, their jerseys have always been green and white, their logo features light orange/yellow until their 50th anniversary when the logo featured gold. I just don't envision black as part of a Celtic/Irish color scheme. green, white, orange.

Somehow I can't imagine Celtic of Glasgow rocking a black alternate.

and for the record, I love gangsta rap.

I can understand your point and I agree with you to an extent but those shorts still look good whether it goes against tradition or not. :D
