The website Uni-watch has found and revealed this year’s NBA Christmas uniform concepts.
Because the 10 teams that will play in this year’s marquee games haven’t been scheduled, the uniform concepts include a majority of the NBA teams. The looks have a very classic design, with a cursive script for the team name and a simple font for the numbers over a solid color or pinstripe distinctive of the team.
And then there’s the Hawks’ uniform.
There’s the funky triangular pattern that is absent from all the other looks. The reds in the jersey appear to be a combination of the tones the team wore in the 1970s and early 1990s.
Uni-Watch author Paul Lukas put it this way:
“I don’t know what to make of that pattern on the jersey and the sides of the shorts, but it sure looks, uh, interesting.”
And then there’s the lime green accents on the shorts – a tribute to the green and blues the team wore in the 1970-72 seasons?
The Hawks will have a updated uniform in the 2015-16 season. Could this be it?
Your thoughts … please.
