    If it helps prolong the athlete's career and prevent injuries, what's the problem? Some players prefer not to wear them though.

    Those Detroit jerseys are nice! I do wonder what teams have against their logo / alternate on the front of the jersey..

    compression pants etc don't really do anything as far as injuries nor prolonging an athlete's career.

    There's something about these Nike jerseys that throws me off. Somehow they manage on each jersey to do something that is just odd..

    Short Shorts Harden certainly prefers showing off those thighs.

    Wow those Pacers uniforms are awesome.. They could have done better with the design on the front. Little cluttered. Everything else is reeeeaal nice.

    I think the Pacers jerseys look like crap. Super lame in my opinion. I don't get how it's so hard for people who are supposedly professional designers to come up with cool designs. These jerseys look like something I would have designed back in elementary school. Weak.

    wow. Those Indy uniforms are an abomination.
    So far all the uniforms I have seen the adidas version was tons better.

    Pacers is a nice look, but I really don't get why Nike has to cram everything together. That is my issue with all of these. Leave some room between the collar and the name, but also between the name and the number. Basically the difference between the old Pistons and the new is the collar and putting the number closer...it's like they tried to put everything at chest height.

    Are they making short shorts for Harden?

    Are teams allowed to use their actual logo on the jersey? Rockets would be awesome with just the logo since it's not cluttered and is just an R.

    Abomination? Really? Come on man, they aren't THAT bad. It's definitely an improvement over their old bland jerseys. It has a bit of a retro vibe to them and that arc'ed typography seems like a homage to their Hickory uniforms.

    Don't mind the Pacers' new jerseys but the Indiana 1894 logo is hideous. Way too busy and noisy.

    I get what the designers (high schoolers?) were trying to do, but they failed miserably, IMO.

    If they just kept it simple and wrote Indiana on top or Pacers on top instead of words in a circle. And brought down the numbers as a result to that. I think it would look much better

    the pacers jersey is way too cramp. Why leave all that space at the bottom of the jersey. Kinda iffy on the circular design but it's different
