Do not like. But you could have told me they were going shirts vs skins instead of using the gold on green and I would have approved.

The front of these is just too much. Whitespace is OK. Use it. Make the number smaller and move it down.

I feel like something like this could work well as a t-shirt but not a jersey. Having all the logos on it just makes it way too busy to execute well.

I liked these, until I saw them on someone.

The Boston is too wide and all the lettering to big.

The shorts are great tho.

Exactly. If I want a replica banner, I’ll buy a replica banner. This design looks like an unlicensed generic jersey, the kind that goes on sale for 75% on Fanatics because it doesn’t look authentic/good.
Or you bought if from a guy on a side street on the way to the Garden selling them out of a black trash bag.

They are better than last year's green-and-gold. But much worse than the Memphis alternate uniforms in 2017-2018; those were great.

There are loads of options
Totally agree. I like a lot of the city versions—Rip City, The Town, The North, Sac Town, Los Suns....hell, even The District is cool. I don’t know why we got the shitty script, but there are tons of better options than putting every part of their name on the front.

"Our fucking city" would look nice ;)

I'm also happy they're done with the Notre Dame uniforms.

Omg yes the green & gold Notre Dame uniforms were the fugliest articles of clothing ever worn on an NBA court. Anything is an upgrade, but there are far too many letters on this new jersey. Go with "Boston" or "Celtics". If only they could get rights to show all the major sports trophies on their jersey with "Titletown" that would be a cool alternate.

Grizz uniforms are nice:

I think one issue for Boston is that as a team with a really basic, classic jersey that hasn't really changed over 70 years, and which is 2 colors only.... there isn't a lot to draw from for these city editions. No throwbacks, no fiesta color schemes, nothing.

And.... Boston is honestly a city most identified with sports teams, elite colleges and early American history, what is the "City" quality you draw on? Some places use the city flag.... I literally could not tell you what it looks like. We aren't associated with something like Biggie influencing the BKL uniform, or these Memphis ones influenced by Soul music etc.
