NBA: The NEW Nike jerseys ranked!
Nike has taken over for Adidas as the official provider of apparel and uniforms for the NBA, and you know what that means! NEW UNIFORMS!
So far, most of the changes appear to be subtle, like the addition of the Nike swoosh (Adidas didn't have their logo on the uniforms) and the Jordan Jumpman logo on the Charlotte Hornets. In addition to this, a lot of the teams are now going to display an advert 'patch' on the front of their jerseys.
So in true offseason fashion, I thought it would only be right to do a 'Top 10' style post on the newest jerseys.
Feel free to disagree with me, this is all based on personal preference and what I think looks best!
1. Sacramento Kings
The new Kings jersey is by far the hottest drop this offseason, building on the new logo, arena and roster of young talent, Sacramento finally has a jersey that impresses me. The mixture of purple and grey makes them stand out from the crowd, and do I dare say it? But the company sponsor doesn't look bad!
The white uniform is pretty standard, but still has clean cut lines and is a big revamp over the past few seasons. I'm on board.
2. Indiana Pacers
From what I've seen on twitter, this could be a potentially controversial second place pick.
For me, the Pacers uni is like nothing we've seen in recent years. Classy and unconventional! The simple addition of the yellow/navy stripes down the sides has made it something different, and the Pacers could do with something exciting after losing Paul George to the Thunder.
3. Washington Wizards
The Wizards have done it right. Stick with a formula that works and refine it. The new uni looks that little bit sharper than previous years, with the addition of the Nike swoosh on the red/blue uniform giving it just that little something extra.
4. Philadelphia 76ers
They added piping and stars, what more could you possibly want?
5. Detroit Pistons
The Pistons have made some big changes in the past few seasons. The creation of the grey motor city uni combined with the new logo & branding have made them a very nice team to watch on court this upcoming season, and with the addition of Avery Bradley, people will tune in to watch them play in their brand new home!
6. Oklahoma City Thunder
The changes may not be noticeable at first, but when you really look at these new unis, you quickly pick them up. Adding in orange piping and bigger logos on the shorts make these a good looking kit.
I just hope Nike bring out the all orange jersey again.
7. Charlotte Hornets
The added the Jordan Jumpman logo, what more could you want? The teal jersey is a classic and this little change only makes them better.
8. Portland Trail Blazers
The design hasn't changed (trust me, I have a Blazers jersey on as I'm typing this), but they're still awesome.
9. Chicago Bulls
The added piping, see a theme? But seriously, I'm not a fan of these unis.
10. Golden State Warriors
Have they made any changes? Let me know!
