Nike plus not updating
The information that Nike provided today included mention of larger armholes and a "tweaked collar shape." The Nike logo will also be added to all jerseys and shorts (except for the Hornets, who'll be wearing the Jordan Brand logo because Michael Jordan owns the team).We know that some teams will definitely be getting new uniform designs.
Why did the NBA summer league games use Adidas uniforms? Adidas' contract included this year's summer league. According to Nike, teams will release their basic white and colored uniforms "this summer," with alternate designs slated to be revealed "in the coming months." Nike has also said there will be "a major launch in early fall."Isn't that cutting it kind of close to the start of the regular season? In fact, it may be cutting it even closer than you realize, because the NBA is moving up the start of the regular season this year.While nothing has yet been said about new uniforms, teams rarely change their primary logo without making a corresponding uniform change.• Thunder beat writer Erik Horne has reported that the team's orange "sunset" uniform is being scrapped and that two new alternate designs are being added.• The Timberwolves have a new logo and new team colors, which of course means new uniforms are on the way.• The Trail Blazers have updated their logo and will be updating their uniforms as well.There are rumors about other teams getting new uniforms, but nothing solid.Just last month Adidas unveiled its new uniforms for the NHL, with most teams maintaining their previous designs.So don't expect a full-scale league-wide makeover -- that's not going to happen.
