NBA Heritage Jerseys to Reportedly Become Sleeved in 2015

We’ll be seeing even more sleeved NBA jerseys next season. According to CSNNW, all “heritage” shirts in 2014-15 will feature the sleeves:

In the case of the Portland Trail Blazers, their popular white “Rip City” jersey will be converted to a short sleeve fit. The same goes for the Detroit Pistons and their blue “Motor City” jersey.

There’s reluctance by some teams to switch up their look, we’re told. However, this is something the league wants to occur and there’s more teams in favor of the change oppose to the ones that are not, another source said.

    These sleeved jerseys are only setting it up for ads on the jerseys within 5 years. Even a blind man could see that one coming.

    Whenever I’ve seen the sleeved jerseys all I ever heard was groans all around, especially during the big slate of Christmas games. I can’t believe the league is still pushing this idea forward. Ugggh. Make it stop!

    The jerseys will be here to stay if the fans give in and buy these. So don’t give in and buy these
