    Pretty fly, but it looks like ‘Shard might have something in his belt.

  • ber

    Very stylish. Looks like something Diddy should have designed instead of those god awful silver Mavs jerseys.

    the black alternate one will be fly

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    Can they replace these blue jerseys for the black alternates (if they exist)? I can’t get down with the curved stripes…

    Is Rashard pregnant? Man, he’s going to be out for the season and then the Magic are going to get the number one draft pick!

  • http://www.freewebs.com/betcats BETCATS

    i wonder if they exsist too, i did some google searching, and i couldnt find any good, relaible picks

  • riggs

    man they shouldve went and bought back the shining stars print :(

  • B. Long

    Dear Orlando Magic, If you want to sell jerseys don’t add hidieous slanted stripes. Just bring back the alt. black ones with regular pinstripes. Sincerely, Everyone.

    I don’t digg these. ya digg.

  • http://alloutblitz.com Coedeazy

    bring back penny hardaway and shaq also

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com H to the Izzo

    I’m just thankeful these weren’t around during the Shaq era.

  • http://birdmonster.blogspot.com tenorca

    These blow. B. Long’s right (though the blue/whites with the pinstripes from the Stevie Franchise days were equally awesome.)
    I never understand why teams have to change their unis when they, once upon a time, had it right. The Warriors’ unis with the cable car? Perfect. The Warriors’ unis now? They look like some BS squad from that Will Ferrell movie. The Celtics have it right: simply, classy, timeless. The NBA needs to take a cue from the Chuck Taylors: don’t mess with sweetness.

    There OK.

    I was at the unvailing and they look real good up close, nut the blu ones more than than the white ones. Like the numbers very sleek could’ve defenitly seen penny or tmac or some new rapper rockin’ one

    WTF are these WNBA rejected-pieces of sh!t?

  • http://www.lifehoopsthoughts.blogspot.com the baconator

    Um… no. Especially in the Dwight Howard pic, they look too much like the Nuggets jerseys. I’m with Ryne on this one; bring back the black alternates!!!



  • Young Chris MP3

    Nothing will ever compare to the Shaq and Penny jerseys.

  • daniel

    i like em, but why has everyone gotten rid of the rounded neck? why does everything have to be a V neck?

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/christopher_sells-authorHV106.html chiqo

    not feeling it.

  • http://www.nba.com/celtics/ Moose

    How many “new” unis do the Magic need?

  • vmcb

    I like them

  • Big L

    Can’t add a alternate uni for 2 years after a new jersey is added. So a black alt. won’t be seen for a while. The white ones look cool, not sure about the blue yet. I would rank this one 3rd behind the Hornets and T’Wolves upgraded jerseys.

  • MyKal

    I don’t see the point in all of the uniform changing, 90% of the uniforms in the L are perfect for their teams and don’t need changing for another decade (the magic in my opinion was one of those teams). Look what happened to the wolves uni, I enjoyed watching the old Kevin Garnett era uni(not so much the team) and now, with their new model, it just looks uninspiring and it feels as if teams are going away from good, popular looks and trying to look more space age with the V necks and the re-invention of the pinstripe (see Orlando and New Orleans). So here’s a message for the designers (Jonathan Yuska thats you!): We aint’t in mars and we ain’t wanna be in mars so leave our NBA tradition alone and go ruin some other sports look!

  • http://www.nba.com/celtics/ Moose

    If all this uniform changing is an attempt at selling more jerseys, then somebody should tell these people that they are WRONG. All of these new unis suck.

  • http://twentythreenine.blogspot.com Russ Bengtson

    Like Wendy Testeberger says, “Gross, Stan.”

  • http://myspace.com/jrcfl Justin

    Undecided. New Orleans is looking like the best of the new unis so far.

  • ENDS

    Ther is no way this is worse than the T-wolves jersey. The Penny/Shaq Jersey were the Hottest Jersey Ever (Entire League, there, i Said it – even the Bulls copied it Later) . However the Ones they Had Now were to Plain, especially for a team Nicknamed Magic. PLus they were exactly like the Hornets Jersey. Check em out

  • ENDS

    The People who loved last years design and hate this one are Idiots. Its the same damn thing. They Just added the faint pinstripes, you can hardly see them on the white ones. Upgrade

  • stu from oz

    have you guys seen the photo on nba.com?
    nick anderson, that’s what happens when you diss money. dude looks bee stung.

    holy crap im old enough to have been around when the expansion teams were launched O.o

  • darren

    Again? Do they have new jerseys every season or something?

  • http://moneybills2cents.blogspot.com/ Money Bill Williams

    why was T.I at the unveiling?

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com/ Michael NZ

    Don’t they have new unis every year? At least it seems that way.

  • Krishan

    LOL at russ dropping some southpark wisdom. And funny how the post says it’s “ultra-futuristic”, I kinda pictured dwight comin out of a busted dalorian and fog all over the place, b!tching about his flux capacitor. While wearing this mess.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    SLAM, the first pic of Dwight wearing the jersey has to be next issue’s Sure Shot subject. Wow.

  • Diogo

    Why do they make a new uniform every two seasons?

  • Sarah

    I’m sorry but I think these are kinda ugly.

  • tealish

    What was wrong with the original pinstripes? The black alternate pinstripes from back when Penny was Penny was possibly the greatest NBA jersey of all time.

  • Ned

    woooo… slimming!

  • Squirrel7

    Was I the only one who much preferred the white pinstripe one from the Penny days, as opposed to the black one. Don’t get me wrong, the black one was hot, but considering how plain most white jerseys were back then, the Magic’s stood out. Didn’t think much of the blue alternate one they bought out though….

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Wow! Thumbs down.

  • rav

    can’t they just go back to the ones used in the mid-90′s – the new ones and the previously ones were s***e

  • slamfan4life

    those are pretty sick
