These days, less is more when it comes to NBA uniforms.
And they'll be busting out these boys soon, according to the team's official Twitter account:
OKC THUNDER (@okcthunder) November 8, 2012
If you put that next to a Brooklyn Nets uniform, it's hard to ignore that the Thunder were probably borrowing a bit from the Nets stripped-down, clean new look under Jay-Z and company.
I like this new breed of NBA uniforms. Do you remember how cartoonish NBA uniforms used to be?
No, I'm quite pleased with this new trend in the NBA. The Nets may have been accused of borrowing heavily from the Oakland Raiders and San Antonio Spurs in their new uniforms, but somewhat ironically, I also found it to be a very Manhattan look.
Walk around Manhattan on a Saturday night, and you'll mostly see designer jeans and black coats consisting of a variety of styles. Sexy but not too flashy, distinctive yet simple.
So I guess OKC has gone a bit Manhattan on us. It works, it really does. Of course, as long as those hideous Toronto Raptors uniforms never, ever return, I'll be pretty happy.
Hit me up on Twitter—my tweets aren't afraid to get emotional after a big win.
