Celtics Slight Uniform Mod For Next Year

Recommended Posts

I just found out from a source inside the organization (One of my good friends' older brother) That the Celtics are looking to slightly modify their uniforms for next season. The most favored idea was going back to the old arched "BOSTON" script on the road uniforms and THE EDITION OF BLACK TO THE UNIFORM SCHEME!!! :puke: Possibly a drop shadow and an outline and the addition of black to the piping. :puke:

I'll keep you guys posted.

Yeah, I think it looks kind of ugly, but we'll see if it even flies.

You rat.  You're always so nosey.  Well, here's the deal.  Barror wants to change them up a little bit.  He wants one of those retro look, but updated, kind of like those Nike jerseys.  Well, one of the Nike guys was here today to show us ideas and Wyc seems to like green one that has the Boston written across the chest like the old jerseys from the 60's.  It has black around the numbers, like a shadow look to it.  It also has one of those Laker style collars.

No, actually one of the guys from Nike came.  They're talking about changing up the jerseys a little bit next year.

so maybe the C's uniforms will look like the concepts I posted up here a few months back, without the gold.

Why would Nike be designing the jerseys? I thought as of next year Reebok was in charge of everything. Doesn't Reebok's full contract with the NBA start next year, where they supply all uniforms, warmups & ref apparel?

Yeah, while they're at it, why don't they change Penn State's football unis, the Red Wings sweater and Tigers home unis...

This (if true) is one of the dumbest things Wyc Grousbeck and co. could ever think of. Absolutely no reason to do this.

Another nail in the coffin that holds Celtic Pride....

yeah, it's adding black for the sake of black

But I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and not pass opinions until I see the new unis. Who knows? It might work.

As traditional as the Celtics unis are, they are monochrome. If adding a little black can add a little depth to everything and modernize it whie still retaining its integrity, go for it. I'll use the Cincinnati Reds as an example. Not counting the black sleeves, I think they did a great job adding black to a monochrome (red & white) color scheme. Black is the only color that could have been added without looking like a drastic re-design. Now the Reds look modern, but still retain the same imagery as the Big Red Machine of the 70s.

Here's the thing, the Celtics look modern the way they are! The jerseys are timeless themselves. They added the clover a while back and that was a nice addition but to change the "Celtics" text and the look of the letters is just WRONG even if it does include black.

Mike is right about this one.

My dad works for a supplier to Reebok, and talks to guys there a lot. One of his friends was bitching to him this week about losing the Celtic business to Nike. Wehn my dad asked what happened, the guy told him the same story as above. It was interesting to hear it form the inside viewpoint. This guy was telling my dad, all pissed. Apparently, they asked Reebok to come up with some 'retro' looks to change to, and Reebok showed them stuff that was VERY similar. I guess Barror wanted the black, and Reebok didn't show it to him.

Oh well. I like the change. It will look very cool. More retro and classic.
