Any trash on the mighty uniform is an insult.


This the what we know the uniform to be:

Certainly not a billboard to horrible companies and people was the uniform when it was pure and celebrated.

A wonderful view. No mention of a company that, by many, is thought to be criminal.
Markelle has Faults, Lonzo can't Ball, Jayson Tatum is the best player in his draft.

Logo on the Celtics logo is a disgrace. Lakers didn't even do it.
Handsome.

Nike didn't pay whatever they paid to go on the back of the jersey.

Swoosh is nice but jersey a bit crowded, not terrible. How did Adidas not even make it on the jersey? What chumps :lol:

At the same time, they're not expected to be paying $200+ million in salaries + tax in the near future.

If a small sponsorship at the top corner of the jersey helps pay the bills, I'm fine with it.

I hate that logo on the side...uuughhh

Anyway, I have one question: why did we stop having ¨Celtics¨on the away uniforms? I thought it was a temporary thing, but I miss having that instead of the ¨Boston¨thing. Just wondering

Just a matter of time before every team is doing it. Can only run for so long. I don't mind it, although I do wish it were a little smaller and more subtle. It's too... "boom! Look at me"

I think Boston looks much nicer but it does look a lot cleaner minus the ads.

The NBA is so profitable that the salary cap exploded and allowed Durant and GSW to ruin the league's competition.

Yet they still stoop to bush league ads on the uniforms for additional revenue, a drop in the bucket. Pathetic.

Unpopular opinion. I like the Nike jerseys at first glance. The sponsors are a little hit or miss, but whatever..I'm used to huge sponsors on jerseys here in England I guess, so this is nothing.

Looks pretty much the same to me. The sponsor patch doesn't even really stick out on our uniforms IMO.

I remember when GE moved here and got all those tax incentives that there was a lot of speculation about what they would do as a "gift" to the city (sponsoring fireworks, donating a park, etc).

...instead they squated over the best jersey in sports and dropped a logo on it. Wyc was watching the whole time.

Tatum had a bunch of pics taken for his rookie photo shoot, the back of the celtics jersey has a different cut, and the trim doesn't go all the way around the sleeves now.

Image

as already noted the trim around the bottom of the shorts is different

On the topic of Jerseys, It makes you wonder if George Castanza isn't in charge of what these modern day offerings are made of and designed to look like?

George has fooled them before!.... Maybe he's found a new gig at Nike and is getting it on with his secretary under his work desk as we speak?

As I recall from a recent Seinfeld rerun, George's ideas didn't exactly work out too well for old George Steinbrenner and the NY Yankees.... :)

Nike better look out.....
