    hey fellas,

    Didn't know if there was an appropriate thread for this question but I was just wondering;

    What happened to our purple road jerseys?

    I'm pretty sure I've seen all of our road games and we're always wearing the home gold or Sunday whites

    did they decide to stop using them?

    It's some sort of thing with Nike. The Jersey allocation is different.

    New Nike partnership for the jerseys changed the rules. The team gets to choose which jersey to wear, home team gets first choice and the away team has to pick a different color.

    My brother and his best friend are really into sports apparel/marketing and they have both went on for the last five or so years about how far Nike has fallen quality wise, how they've managed to live solely off their name while the product goes to the dogs. This NBA season has proven it to me...terrible quality jerseys and horrid uniform colors were enough, but them having us wear purple at home and Sunday whites on the road really puts it over the top. I miss Adidas.

    How many torn jerseys do you remember seeing Ever? Have seen photos or footage of 3 or 4 myself this year and I don't watch much beyond the Lakers. That's freaking embarrassing and indicative of poor quality .... would you not say?

    Yeah just the small detail, the road jerseys are missing the thin white border along the lettering. That was the first thing I noticed before the game started, I was like there are something about these jerseys that’s missing...
