Writes Lukas: "The jerseys will have sleeves and, more intriguingly, will not have uniform numbers on the front. Instead, they will carry a team logo on the chest, similar to a hockey jersey, with the uniform number moved to the left sleeve. Each player's name and number will remain on the back, as usual. The overall visual effect is that of a glorified T-shirt."


He adds: "The jerseys, which will be officially unveiled by the league later this month, mark a significant departure from past NBA uniform designs. Although several teams have been experimenting with sleeved alternate jerseys, the sleeves on those jerseys have been blank -- no numbers, no stripes, no patches, no patterns. These new designs, with the numbers on the sleeves, may indicate that the league and Adidas are planning to turn sleeves into a significant uniform design element."


QUESTION: Do you like the jersey? Hate it? Will you buy one?
