Charlotte Hornets?

Recommended Posts

This is a grown man's basketball league, not a 1980's girls high school team. No sleeves.

Sleeves are going to stay in the league. Deal with it.

And what evidence do you have of this?

More teams are adopting a sleeved jersey for the upcoming season.

So one season of an Adidas/NBA cash grab is enough to claim sleeved jerseys are the future of the NBA despite players having already stated their dislike of them? They're stupid and pointless. They won't stick around.

Tell that to giant graphics on the jerseys. I'm not saying they won't stick around though. That remains to be seen.

By all accounts players hate them. I don't see them lasting.

Well I don't think the players will have a say to be honest... It's a league and Adidas decision.

No. You have to have the people wearing the jerseys on board, which currently they aren't.

Remember the "new basketballs?"

The NHL and Reebok's pushing for super tight, really light, moisture-wicking jerseys lasted three months into 2007-08 before they went to essentially the old jerseys because the players complained to no end. If the players don't like sleeves, the league and manufacturer can't just say "lulz deal with it".

Except multiple teams and players used that new ball and THEN criticized it.

The only team that has worn sleeves to date was the Golden State Warriors, where they had one bad game and Steph Curry acted like a baby about it. Until I see more games played with sleeves, I'm not going to count it out.

One is enough for me, and the fans dont like them either so if they dont sell they wont bother making them and will stop being worn, they already are fazing them out of college, not a single team has them this year so far

How did a Charlotte Hornets thread turn into a NBA sleeves thread?

Sleeved basketball jerseys are just this generation's cooperalls.

Kendell Marshall and Roy Hibbert both spoke out against them before their teams even had them.
