Nike released its “City Edition” jerseys for the 2017-18 NBA season and a lot of them are absolutely incredible. They invoke the feeling of the place they represent, and offer a bold new approach to the team. Some of the jerseys, well — they’re not great. Sorry in advance to Rockets, Heat, Raptors and Knicks fans — Nike has said these jerseys will be released at a future date.
There can only be one, and the Sixers’ jersey is absolutely incredible. It’s clean, classic, and looks like parchment. It’s perfection.
Sure, it looks a little bit too much like the Clippers’ colorway, but this is still very slick. Good uniform.
The “B” and “Y” have little stingers on them and the side design is hornet wings. Would wear.
It’s easy to overlook this one — until you zoom in. They made it snakeskin design to honor Kobe Bryant it’s worthy of a high tier.
These are simple, sure — but they didn’t need to be fancy.
Not everyone can pull this off, but the sunset motif screams Utah more than their normal jerseys do.
It’s nice, just a little too wordy.
Love the cloud imagery. Dig the stripes. Don’t like the font.
These are really close to trash tier. They still might be trash tier. Not sure. I don’t like them, but I don’t have a violent reaction to them either.
Remember the Alamo. Forget these.
The proud Orlando tradition of being in space.
Kristian Winfield is making a strong argument for these to be pushed up because the jersey resembles the Brooklyn Bridge, and while that’s cool — it just looks too much like the Nets normal jersey. Not feeling it.
The parquet is neat. That’s it. Outside of that this jersey is the equivalent of sweatpants.
