18: Philadelphia 76ers
Did you know the Harlem Globetrotters are now a team in the NBA? Well, the Philadelphia Sixers definitely look like them.
The “City of Brotherly Love” definitely is implemented in these jerseys, as they have red white and blue with the stars on the sides.
While there is an extreme pride of patriotism on these jerseys, it would have been fantastic to see Nike bring back the old school black 76ers jerseys again, and have the team switch up the text. Those are the days when the Sixers had one of the nicest jerseys in the NBA.
17: Phoenix Suns
The Phoenix Suns want you to feel warmer when you’re watching them play basketball, and somehow, it may work. The purple and orange just make sure fans know that the Suns are playing in a really warm area. Their jerseys aren’t bad, although they have had much nicer jerseys in the past. The plain “Suns” or “Phoenix” across the chest is kind of boring compared to what they have had in the past. Although, the unique colors keep these team somewhat high on this list.
16: Memphis Grizzlies
Most teams in the NBA have what you can say, a professional looking jersey. For some reason, the Memphis Grizzlies have a college looking jersey. That definitely is not a bad thing, considering college sports jerseys are usually always nicer than professional sports jerseys. The new jerseys are very simple, but the new colors give it a nice sharp look. If you’re ever wanting to wear a basketball jersey but don’t want to stand out, the new Grizzlies jerseys are a perfect look.
15: Golden State Warriors
The only reason why someone wouldn’t like the Golden State Warriors jerseys, are because they hate the team. But, the Warriors jerseys are pretty nice.
Adding the Golden Gate Bridge to the jerseys is a pretty cool look, and allows them to stand out.
It especially stands out when it’s on the black jerseys, those look really nice. Maybe people don’t want to buy their jerseys as much because they hate how successful they are. While, other younger kids love to buy a Steph Curry jersey.
14: New York Knicks
In New York, things have to stay the same. The white jerseys always looked pretty good, while the blue ones aren’t too bad. The white jerseys actually look a lot better to wear out somewhere than they do when there’s basketball being played. But, maybe it’s too much to change the Knicks jerseys. If you think about it, all the local New York teams haven’t really changed their jerseys. Maybe the Knicks didn’t want to be that one team that went for it.
13: Brooklyn Nets
Yes, the Brooklyn Nets have the nicer jerseys of the New York teams. In Brooklyn, it’s better to keep it subtle than to have jerseys with crazy colors. There’s nothing wrong with the Knicks jerseys, but the Nets jerseys fit New York better. It’s basic, with ‘Brooklyn’ or an abbreviation, across the chest. The jerseys look almost as if they are a step up from a local business selling Brooklyn t-shirts for tourists. These jerseys are easy to rock everywhere, especially a BBQ in New York during the summer.
