For those that dislike the jerseys, I'm curious to hear what about them you don't like. What changes would you have made to make them better? While they may not be perfect, I think they really did a nice job with that modern-retro vibe. These really feel like our original uniforms, but updated in a way that makes them fresh. A know a lot of people are in the Sunburst-or-Bust camp, but it was unrealistic to expect them to ever bring that back on a primary uniform. I think it's very cool that they sort of brought it back with the Sunburst streaks on the shorts. All in all, I'm extremely pleased with the final product, but would love to hear reasons why some fans just aren't feeling it.

I think that the shorts are OK because they have that small sunburst and the wings, but the jerseys are so generic and simple. Boring as ****. I don't like the font size and the type font and I don't like that the Nike symbol is on all the jerseys (Adidas didn't put it in the authentics). I don't like that the jersey doesn't have any Suns logo at all....they are all the same.

I understand that other people can like them.

Hopefully the other jerseys are better, I think that we are gonna have three more.

Yeah, I'm hoping that every team gets at least one jersey that really represents the team and features logos/graphics (similar to many jerseys from the 90's). I think a really exaggerated Sunburst that wraps around the jersey could be cool.

That's roughly how I feel about them too. The shorts are a huge upgrade, but there's something off about the font and how it's positioned over the number. Not really feeling the grey as the secondary color in the lettering and as the outline for the number. Oh well I guess... everything has been better than the crappy Nash era jerseys.

I'm Ok with them. They don't looks bad but there is nothing unique in them.

Suns should hit Raja up, get him to personally coach Reed/provide advice.

Has the build/size/3pt stroke to be a legit 3 & D guy - just hope he uses the physical tools he has

Every time I see a new image of our unis, I love them even more. I'm surprised some fans dislike, or even hate, them.


I’ve warmed up to the purple ones. The white ones are still horrendous.



yup.

White ones, the orange and purple name/number combo hurts my eyes... its not coherent.
