What is going on with NBA marketing. I have a feeling that Silvers was behind the nick name jerseys, the Christmas jerseys, and now these. I hope he doesn't screw up the NBA.
Burn them all
I like the style fine, but send sleeved jerseys back to hell and burn them forever.

Really awful. Sleeves need to go away from the NBA game.
3 scenarios for the draft, starting with my favorite first:
1. Pacers trade up for Justice Winslow
2. Take WCS or Stanley Johnson (this is the theory of a player falling); Make trades (Hibbert/West/others) for additional picks - George Lucas and Rakeem Christmas are players I'd love to have with a late first/early 2nd round
3. Trey Lyles
I'm sure my opinion will change many times before the draft though.
I'm one of the few people that didn't mind the sleeved jerseys but the design for the front of the jerseys and the colors of the East unis are putrid.
The adidas stripes down the side are total ****.
Why does EVERYTHING that happens in New Orleans have to be dominated by Jazz/Mardi Gras purple/green/gold themes and have the fleur-de-lis as the logo?? Just make a nice looking jersey for the game. Do the uniforms really need to be patterned after the city? I understand the game is taking place in New Orleans but why must they lack creativity so badly? It is just the same old crap on a different day....
Those might be worse than this, which I consider one of the worst designs of all time....
Wtf is that. I don't really mind the sleeved jerseys, but the overall design for these are just ugly.
Dammit. Stop it NBA. Stop it. Even friggin Evansville found out the sleeves aren't cool. EVANSVILLE.
So these are warmups, right? There are real jerseys underneath?
The West ones aren't too terrible, the East ones look like if the Boston Celtics decided to make a new uniform or something just awful for a conference jersey. Maybe they are punishing the East for being so bad lol.
"It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

do not like these on any level.
as major cold said, i fear this may be a part of silver putting his touch on the way they are going to do it under his vision.
it makes me cringe as to what other plans he may have.
The nba thinks people would be more willing to casually wear a sleeved jersey out in public than a sleeveless one.

Wow ugly as hell why do all the sleeved jerseys just remind me of the Summer league uggghh so cheap looking
GRANGER!! FOR THE WIN.............. IT'S GOOD!!!!!
I love sleeved Jerseys. Love em.
^^ For the fans - agreed. On the court - not so much.
I have no problem with the sleeved concpet my issue is the giant logos on the front and the overall amateur look of these uniforms.
This. The NBA sees how much money the NFL makes off their jerseys and people wear football jerseys much more often than they do NBA jerseys. I only wear my Pacer jerseys if I am going to game. Rarely do I wear it out and about. I have numerous Pacers t-shirts that I wear, but rarely the jersey.
I still would not wear those shirts. They are ugly as hell.
Wow those are putrid, disgusting.
Evansville brought the sleeves back or at least for the recent game I went to.
As for the design, looks like some generic athletic shirt you'd find at Wal-Mart. I don't think they're horrible, but why would anyone want to wear one? Much less buy one? I'd honestly rather have teams just wear either their home or away jersey with an all-star patch. I realize the NBA is trying to sell additional jerseys though.
