David Stern working on Christmas and charging $100-$129 for these T-Shirts.  I couldn't find out what a Shuttles "worth".

...I liked them...

It looks like they're playing in their pajamas...

Um, sponsored link? I am having trouble seeing how solid color uniforms are bad, seeing as how none are hot pink or puke green.

It is. Pajamas are the Christmas day code.

If folks don't like it they can watch an iCarly marathon or something.

The sleeves aren't the problem.  Look a little more professional to my eye than the tank tops do.  Granted I am a white Canadian, so take that with a grain of salt.

Yes, I'm certain that they were incredibly upset about having to work on Christmas for a measly $100,000+ for a few hours work...

I like them. From a fashion standpoint,much cooler to wear that as a fan than seeing some middle aged dad with blubbery arms squeezing into an old Iverson jersey.

Hey look!  Davey S. is trying to sell some more sh*t on top of the other sh*t that he sells.

They do look like shiat, and the sleeves and tight fit are the problem. They look like the kind of uniform a European handball team would wear, not NBA uniforms.

My dad made a point earlier. Those sleeves are the perfect place to put advertising. Notice they even put the numbers on one arm to get corporations thinking. Great marketing idea will ease us Americans into having ads on jerseys. People would go ape shiat if they replaced the logos on the front of the uniforms, but putting ads on sleeves would not draw nearly as much resistance.

Maybe your dad read this story from last year

Part of the problem was the lack of detail in the shorts. Being the exact same color with no striping or anything made the whole uniform look like a leotard. Especially when you throw in the various arm and leg sleeves that players where these days.

made me thinking of the days in high school and junior high when we would play basketball shirts vs skins ( I wonder if a gym teacher would risk that any more) if it was a mixed class as most of mine were the girl's were obviously shirts.

You don't really notice it after a while.  For example here's what they do to CFL uniforms

Well, at least Blake Griffin doesn't have to wear 'em anymore.

/And in any other sport, those refs won't have to wear their stripes anymore...

Are long black knee braces also part of the design? Or does every single player in the NBA have knee problems now?

They are knee pads. Players fall a lot and the court is hard, plus floor burn sucks.

Oh no! They're wearing tee-shirts. SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.

/it's a stupid thing to care about.

This is not news.  The summer league teams all had sleeves.  And the merchandising guys were pretty up front about the reasons for it - so they could sell jerseys to fat middle-aged white guys.

If Underoos made NBA jerseys.
