What is that on his arms? Wait….
Firs thing. Sleeves. Yuck.
I’m not really feeling these at all. It has a very collegiate look. The grey is just blah and the Celtics don’t even have grey as a color. Grey for greys sake.
Second, the sleeves. Did I say that already? Stop it NBA. When it comes to sleeves NBA = No Body Agrees (With the Decision to Have Sleeved Jerseys).
Third, I don’t like that belt buckle design. Just look way out of place. The Patriot-esque sleeve stripes aren’t too bad, but then again, they shouldn’t be there because this shouldn’t be a SLEEVED JERSEY!
There are a few things I do like however. The font. It is a little different than the current font, more of a throwback style with the serifs.
I like the shamrock on the shorts. I do like the use of the parquet design on the uniform, but I wish they would have included gold as a color. Gold also looks like wood color so it would work in that sense too.
They should have used these colors:
Even the sleeve’d versions of these weren’t terrible.
Oh well. For the handful of games we’ll see them in, it will be okay I guess.
FYI, this is a Celtics concept I came up with. Maybe I’m biased, but I like it more.
