As you know, the NBA switched to Nike as its major apparel sponsor this past off-season and a series of new uniforms have been unveiled for all 30 NBA teams, there are four jerseys for each franchise: Swingman, Association, Statement and Icon. These include the normal home white and team color away jerseys, along with a few alternates.
This was all very exciting and new and we thought that was it for now, apparently not.
NBA 2K18 leaked a new series of jerseys for all NBA teams known as the “City” jerseys and they are… let’s just say creative…
These are bad, like real bad. I know Nike likes to think outside of the box, but there is no rhyme or reason to most of these uniforms with the design or color schemes and most have no sort of connection to the brand or franchise they are representing whatsoever.
This is very difficult to do, but here are the five worst to me:
I have to contain myself from vomiting when I see those Jazz jerseys, who decided different hues and large stripes of that terrible orange made sense for the Jazz who have a color scheme of navy blue, white, yellow and sometimes green?
Some of these are kind of cool to me, but most are too much. It will be interesting to see teams actually don these uniforms though, maybe they look better on TV or in person, I doubt it.
