    Why the shorts so high? No one wears their shorts at the belly button but old fat people.

    Put them around the waist

    Hahaha what kind of statement is that, an unfashionable one. It's like the Thunder purposefully use the wrong colours.

    it's like nike designers are now based just offshore the east coast of new zealand. because that would be the antipode opposite of paris & milan

    For these other two uniforms every team will have, does anyone know if there are limitations for how often they're worn?

    Can teams where any of the 4 uniforms at any time they want?

    Why does their need to be a Nike logo both on the shoulder and the shorts? I think they're basically all too cluttered. I especially hate every single one of the brand patches and I can't imagine ever not hating them. Does the NBA really not make enough money? Also, has anyone in human history ever purchased a product because an athlete was wearing their patch? Is that a real thing that happens? I think I'll do the opposite and boycott any company that makes NBA jerseys uglier with their stupid random branding.

    Why have I seen some jerseys with no name brands? Is it just because they haven't chosen the brand yet? Or do some teams have the freedom not to have a name brand on their jersey?

    You don't had to have one but I would imagine most if not all will.

    I will automatically become a fan of any team that goes patchless in the name of aesthetics.

    Well, Les is the only owner that voted AGAINST the jersey ads. And I agree with him. But, likely the new Rockets owner will want to take advantage of that additional revenue stream to help offset the Rockets huge salaries/luxury tax.

    there was an article about it some months ago, that said lots of teams are waiting to see how the market goes so they can get better deals. If they get a deal too soon with some company, it may end up being too low.
