The best thing we can say about the Boston Celtics’ new jersey is it looks a heckuva lot better than it did on Enes Kanter’s phone.
The C’s on Thursday became the latest NBA team to unveil its “City Edition” Nike jerseys, which Boston will wear for multiple games this season.
Check ’em out below.

As mentioned in the tweet, the Celtics will first wear the new duds next week on Nov. 27 when they welcome the Brooklyn Nets to TD Garden for a Thanksgiving Eve clash that likely will be overshadowed by Kyrie Irving’s return to Boston (assuming he’s healthy).
Of course, Celtics fans shouldn’t be shocked by the new look. Kanter “leaked” the jerseys in late October when he posted about them on Instagram. In the Celtics’ defense, their high-resolution photos look much better than the blue-green atrocity from Kanter’s posts.
But still. Not exactly setting the world on fire.
