If these are the NBA's Christmas jerseys, they're awful

I'm not going to go into the odd backstory of how all this was supposedly leaked, but NBA teams are apparently going to wear jerseys with sleeves on Christmas Day. I'm not sold on the authenticity of these jerseys, but people like jerseys, so this is a blog about jerseys. The Heat plays the Lakers on Dec. 25, which, of course, would give the jerseys plenty of exposure. I guess the NBA is pretty confident that Kobe Bryant will be back by then.

Anyway, I think these jerseys are absolutely awful if in fact these actually are the Christmas jerseys. The numbers on the sleeves are just clutter and the oversized logos are tacky. Of course, you know where this is headed, right? Some people inside the NBA want to sell the front of NBA jerseys to sponsor, so this would be a good first step. You know, get everyone conditioned to the idea. Can't wait for that Goya Heat jersey.

Stupidity uber alles!

why is the NBA trying to quietly transition to shirts now?!?! where Jerseys too offensive lol.. Im with you Joe, those things are horrible.. like an ugly holiday sweater!

Never liked playing with sleeves. Either tank top style jerseys, or I cut off the sleeve.....effects my jumper (insert joke here).

I can't believe there aren't other players in the league that feel the same as we do regarding these jerseys. I hope hope the backlash we kill this idea.

does that mean Dwaynne wears his arm protector inside the sleeve or outside the sleeve. Wont all players look alike except for headbands?

Well, not sure what to say about last nights game.... There was a lot of good things that happen, and there were a couple of not so good things that happen.... Let's just start with the good things...

Ball movement was good... Player movement was good.... The offense looked just fine....

Now, the defense wasn't as good... The transition defense was horrible... Execution down the stretch, uhm, well, it didn't work...

But, I think in the three losses this season, the other team brought their collective best and we, really, played good games.... I think when your the three time conference champs, you got to expect to get every teams best, and nothing is gonna change all season long....

But hey, we're just fine, we move forward....

I do think that Pacers team is primed to make a run at the 1 seed.... We have to be aware of what seems to be taking place, big picture wise... And that Nets team really looks out of sink, except when they play the Heat....

Every team that we play will play as if its a playoff game and thats just the reality of this team over the past 4 seasons....

Can't really take any nights off...

Gotta say though, we look just fine, couple of plays go differently down the stretch and comments today are different... ANYWHO... We move forward... Bucks next... Come to play guys.... Defense first.... lets go....

Let go heat three peat
