It was kind of an amusing idea for a retro night, but yeah, some fashions need to stay in the past. :lol:

Frankly I've always found the idea of the home team having to wear white, instead of their main color, absurd. Especially when they get the whole crowd to wear the team color and the away team wears that color as well.

I am not sure how it used to work before but having another medium(Nike) impose more cost? Also isnt this in support of mega corporation giving all the rights from production using penny sweatsbop workers to distribition?

All in all I am not sure how this move helps the league and fans in general other than Nike getting shares of profit and league getting piece of their pie perhaps adam silver mostly. Nike logo isnt exactly eyesore imo but neither do I desire to be reminded of their monopoly whenever I watch NBA games.
Enjoy! <3 Jao
