Those uniforms are hideous and shouldn't be worn. The NBA is only looking at christmas jersey sales, but i swear the christmas uniforms have gotten worse every year for the last 3-5 years.

They look like crap but that won't stop kids from buying them anyways

I just don't understand how the christmas uniforms manage to find a way to get worse every single season. In 3 years they'll be forced to play in hoodies or wifebeaters on xmas day for jersey sales. Ridiculous. When the christmas uniforms caught on 5 or so years ago, they at least were a fun change of pace. Now, i wouldn't even accept one of these as an Xmas gift.

It isn't just use being a curmudgeon, these uni's really are awful. The first year of the christmas uniforms was a fun change of pace, but like i said the NBA has managed to make the christmas uniforms significantly worse every single year. It's going to be painful to watch the LAL vs MIA game on xmas day wearing these YMCA lady tops (No offense, ladies!)

I don't think the christmas pain will be coming from the uni's my friend

There is nothing wrong with sleeved jerseys.

Well, even with kobe i didn't expect us to win the xmas day game. I'm sure i'll have one moment though where i'm chewing d'antoni out on my tv for making gasol shoot 3's like he's the second coming of Nowitzski, but those uniforms really are awful and they get worse every year. I don't even want to think about what they'll look like in 3-5 years

That's probably what the NFL uniforms will turn into in 10 years once they officially go two-hand touch.

Don't you hate it when rich athletes that make millions playing a game for living still find something to complain about?

I don't imagine any of the profits from the Christmas Jersey's go to feed homeless or starving children.

Girls/Women's basketball uniforms don't have sleeves; at least, to no more of a degree than boys/men's uniform.

.....Unless you're referring to some other aspect of the uniforms.
