Sleeve-mania in the NBA won’t be limited to Christmas Day.
A new batch of sleeved NBA uniforms leaked over the weekend, confirming that the Spurs, Bulls, Heat, Timberwolves, Nets and Celtics will all be jumping on the bandwagon, and that the Suns, Knicks and Lakers will each be debuting another sleeved jersey in addition to the ones already unveiled.
This year’s “Noche Latina” unis will all feature sleeves as well as some sort of subtle pattern covering the back, and the Celtics’ and Bulls’ green St. Patrick’s Day jerseys will be of the sleeved variety, as well. The T-Wolves’ new design appears to be a “just because” alternate, while the Nets’ blue-and-gray color scheme may be a nod to the old Brooklyn Dodgers.
All the uniforms in the newest batch are — sleeves notwithstanding — designed like regular basketball jerseys, however, unlike than the strange, rec-league-esque uniforms that teams will wear on Christmas.
