You know those relatively ugly short sleeve uniforms the Golden State Warriors wore this year?
The jerseys that nobody really liked?
Yeah – they’re coming back and coming back hard.
According to a report from ESPN’s Darren Rovell, up to five NBA teams plan to use the Adidas crafted uniforms for the upcoming season:
Hoping in part to push along sales of NBA jerseys, more teams will wear uniforms with sleeves next season.
An NBA source told ESPN.com that as many as five teams will wear the short-sleeve jerseys as an alternate jersey for as much as 12 games during the season.
If there’s any good news, it’s that apparently some NBA franchises still have some taste as the option to use the “adizero” uniform was given to all teams, but many declined:
All teams were offered the option to add this jersey, according to Sal LaRocca, the league’s executive vice president of global merchandising, but LaRocca would not confirm exactly how many teams have committed to it.
At least the players enjoy wearing them. Oh wait, they don’t? Crap.
