The Phoenix Suns will wear an alternate black, sleeved jersey on March 6 against the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Phil Hecken of ArizonaSports.com. On Tuesday, Hecken tweeted a picture of the jersey.
The NBA's Noche Latina campaign is a celebration of the influence and growing support of Latin culture on the NBA. Five other teams--the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, San Antonio Spurs and Chicago Bulls--will also wear alternate sleeved jerseys during Noche Latina.
A quick scroll of Hecken's mentions reveals a bunch of people unhappy with the new look to the Suns' alternate jersey.
Phoenix's former "Los Suns" jerseys were orange tops and bottoms with a gray stripe running along the sides. The numbers and name on the back were white with a gray outline.
Those alternates are no more as the NBA makes its push towards sleeved jerseys.
