The sunburst on the shorts looks like wings to me.

I think that's the intent. The entire set is supposed to be homages to their past history. So that would be homage to previous set

Suns just went from the worst look in the league to worst look in the league. How is that even possible when the two sets look nothing alike. Epic fail

Can Arizona just secede immediately from the Union? Between the Suns and Coyotes, that state has the stupidest sports mindsets in all the land.

God-awful jerseys Phoenix put out.

Man, is this ever bringing out the absolutists MOD EDIT

I agree with Mockba pretty much across the board. This isn't one of the great looks in the NBA right now, nor is it one of the better looks in Suns history, but it still runs laps around the hot garbage they've been wearing for over a decade. The streaks are actually a nice, simplified allusion to the '90s jerseys. You'll notice, too, that the numbers fill in the "invisible sunburst" better on the jerseys, because of the extra space required for the twill backing on Rev30 numbers. So kudos to Phoenix for actually taking one of the templates shortcomings into account, even if they did whiff on things like color balance and that butt-stripe. The wordmark is riding way too low, too, much like whatever's going on with the Clippers.

This is not the calamitous end of a franchise or all sports fashion. Grow up.

They took their failures and made it into a challenge. My God are all teams in that state so backward.

No, it doesn't.

The streaks are actually a nice, simplified allusion to the '90s jerseys.

Maybe in theory, but in reality, it's a lazy and half-assed attempt to throw back without really throwing back.

In reality, going back to the full '90s-style sunburst would mean having an actually creative and interesting NBA uniform, but apparently we can't have those anymore. Instead, it's all about generic and safe designs and leaving as much room for inevitable jersey ads as possible.

You'll notice, too, that the numbers fill in the "invisible sunburst" better on the jerseys

....if you ignore how much empty space there is with single digits and double-digit numbers starting with 1. It's just clunky and doesn't work.

This is not the calamitous end of a franchise or all sports fashion.

Nobody claimed it is. It is, however, a horrible uniform set and one of the worst ever in the history of the NBA.

This isn't HORRIBLE but it's just confusing. This form of abstract minimalism gives me a headache, so in lieu of caring any more than I have to, I raise my eyebrows and move along with life.

The away one isn't bad. The orange one would be good without sleeves, but I get that Adidas is pushing for sleeves to be a thing. And i think the whole set might end up looking better on the court.

The Sixers can rest easy tonight knowing they still own the worst uniforms in the league.

If you honestly think the gray-intensive, Berthold City-strewn, giant-airport-abbreviation having Suns uniforms are better than what they unveiled tonight...

Let's limit our commentary to the uniforms. There's no need for taking personal shots at other members of the community.

Purple would have made a world of difference. The team is avoiding using purple as much as humanly possible. I'm actually shocked they decided to have a purple road uniform. I still believe that was a last second change from a black road uniform.

Me too. Considering how much black merchandise they had and how the other two uniforms (and logos, for that matter) lack purple completely, I'm convinced the road jersey was supposed to be black, but they got scared at the

Last second and sapped it for purple. It's a shame too IMO. I was really looking forward to getting a Suns jersey that matched my Giants caps :P

It's funny, in the display pictures that were released, the jerseys look SO much more out together than they actually are. Maybe that's a sign that they can still tweak a few things on these to tighten the design up and give it more cohesiveness.

The purple looks good, that's about all that can be said. The sleeved jerseys are terrible and they would have been terrible with a full sunburst.

So, I checked with the authorities, and everything's gonna be OK.

Took a deep breath, stepped back, looked again and realized the jerseys will grow on me.

Pouring the orange and black Kool-Aid over some grey ice....

just saw a better pic of them, craptastic stream quality free

i will say that the stream made it look worse than it is

here it is:

I can barely see the orange burst stripes or what ever they are called on the white jersey, just another reason why this is a bad design
