Knicks Rumors: New York to Unveil New Uniforms Next Week
It has been an offseason of change for the New York Knicks.
After finishing a disappointing seventh in the Eastern Conference, the Knicks decided that some major changes needed to be made to their supporting cast, and they did so by bringing in a grand total of nine new players.
Changes were made off the court, too, with Mike Woodson being made the permanent head coach and Glen Grunwald being made the permanent general manager, as well as Baron Davis being invited back in a mentorship role as he recovers from injury.
But after all that, it appears that there is one last change the franchise wants to make—this time to their uniforms.
Though it hasn't officially been announced yet, we likely already have a good idea of what the new uniforms will look like, as the jerseys may have leaked on a now-removed NBA 2K13 commercial, according to CBSSports.com.
The new uniforms—assuming they will be the same as those on the NBA 2K13 commercial—have quite a few significant changes, some of which are welcome, and some of which are just unnecessary.
Removing the black from the uniform and taking out the stripes running down the sides of the jerseys gives the new uniforms a throwback feel, like the uniforms the Knicks wore a few times in the 2011-12 season.
But along with those changes, the Knicks have also added silver to the neck and arm holes, and have cropped the sleeve design to give it a more modern look.
Changes have also been made on the words "New York" on the front of the jersey, which now have a new, smaller font.
All in all, the new uniforms are definitely an improvement, as the Knicks will now likely be wearing jerseys much closer to the ones that were made famous during their glory days.
Still, it would have been nice to see the Knicks tone down a little on the modernizations, as the uniforms don't quite hit the spot with the v-neck collar and the cropped shoulder stripes.
With the Nets completely rebranding as they move in to New York with the Knicks, the new jerseys and logos are a nice way for the Knicks to distract from the hype being created over in Brooklyn until actual basketball is played.
