Pretty solid. I'm hoping that teams with classic designs like the Bulls, Celtics, and Spurs don't have huge alterations, though.

One of the Cavs designs just leaked and it's... something?

It's definitely different.

Anything but the generic 2-color uniforms we've been wearing for the past few years now I guess.

They look like Hawks jerseys.

Better than generic jerseys and sleeved ones for sure

For some reason, I'm not feeling that. Hopefully an alternate.

They just unveiled those cavs jerseys and that pic is legit.

Apparently the Bulls plan on wearing red at home and white away which could get confusing. If home teams continue to wear white, the bulls could potentially wear their red jerseys (or a black alternate) for most of the season

Also read an article that cited Conrad saying that there's 8 teams with throwbacks this uear

I'm not thrilled about the Bulls breaking tradition there. I'll admit that it's kind of weird for me to say that as I do love the red jersey, but as I said in another thread, I like the consistency of the old approach, and am not a huge fan of colour vs. colour, as I feel one team wearing a predominantly white uniform makes for a more distinctive look. I'm glad they didn't heavily tweak the design itself, though.

Still not a fan of the "SAC" wordmark for the Kings, and the mismatched colors for wordmarks and numbers like that of the Cavs red uniforms.

Also not a fan of the new terminologies.

Yeah, I'm a bit iffy about the use of "SAC" and "CAVS", for the same reason I'm not a huge fan of the Hawks' "ATL" alternates. I suppose I don't mind "CAVS" too much, as the Cavaliers are frequently referred to by that nickname, but using team abbreviations just doesn't really appeal to me for some reason.

ATL isn't too bad as here in the states, Atlanta is commonly referred to as "The ATL". It's probably more common than Portland being called Rip City which I have never heard before

I have heard of Atlanta being called that, and in that respect it's fitting, but like I said, for some reason I just don't like the look of it on a jersey compared to the full city name or team nickname. I can't really explain why, though.

It's becoming all a bit gimick-y.

Kind of wishing they just stuck to the traditional home/away/alternate terminology instead of this new-age/different bullshit. Also hoping the Lakers don't wear purple at home and yellow on the road suddenly a la the Bulls color reversal.

Guess I'm just left with: "Why?"

To which I answer: "Money. Duh."

Money, and Adam Silver trying to put his stamp on the league. If it ain't broke, don't fix it...especially when there are other things that should be addressed.

The Nuggets uniforms were also revealed earlier:

I was a big fan of the 2003 uniforms which these were derived from. It kinda devolved design-wise from there. RIP powder blue, and again, that horrible mismatching wordmark and number colors.

Wasn't the "SAC" uniforms of the Kings their alternates last year? The design from last year works pretty well, why change it?

I liked the old navy jerseys as well, so those look pretty good to me.

Meanwhile...what are you doing, Minnesota?

Think I preferred the previous Suns jerseys. These ones feel a bit too plain; the sunburst made the previous one unique and was a nice throwback to the 90s design, suitably modernised.

Clippers blue was revealed this morning, in case you haven't seen it. Here's one of the rookies with a few more that haven't been revealed. Spurs wordmark has been altered slightly and I don't think we've seen the hawks one yet
I like that the hornets will be using the teal more often.

Image

Also on Chris creamers site they showed the wolves jersey which doesn't look as bad as it did in that game screenshot. I kinda dog the look as its a bit different, similar to the wizards jersey

Lakers Home & Away

The collars are pretty different, I'd seen it in the Lonzo Ball screenshot but wasn't sure if they'd keep that in the actual design. I'm glad they didn't fudge with it too much.

Did you notice they called the white association and gold jersey Icon? By Nike's terms white is home and gold is away, but since the home team picks, I could see them continuing tradition of gold home, white on sundays for Chick ☝☝

Screw Nike. Their terminology isn't for me.

Completely agree with you, yellow = home, purple = away & white = sunday's. I'd be fine with them doing the sleeveless black Hollywood nights jerseys too, the sleeved ones just didn't look right to me.

I do believe they are also going to have a fifth "classic" jersey. Wonder which they'll opt for. I really liked those baby blue MPLS jerseys but my gut tells me they'll go with the darker shade blue version.

This is what the almighty Conrad thinks

Honestly I'd be okay with it. I do like the baby blues a little more but they've already been done before and I'd prefer new ones I haven't seen yet. I hate when teams with long histories keep bringing back the same throwbacks instead of picking new ones

So glad that the Clippers opted to use "CLIPPERS" for the wordmarks instead of those hideous jerseys from last year.

Agreed. I felt the same way about the Spurs alternate that uses the alternate logo in place of a wordmark. It makes for a decent concept jersey or fan apparel, but I'm not a fan of the idea for an actual jersey. It's funny because I do actually like the Rockets old "pyjama" pinstripe jerseys which did have the team logo on the front, but since the logo included the Rockets wordmark, I'd say it works better than the aforementioned designs.
