View Full Version : Secret NBA Uniform Updates Leak

Leaks aren't just for hip-hop records, Olympic opening ceremony rehearsal, or bathroom breaks (nor this awesomeness) -- high-interest items like new NBA uniforms are subject to premature release as well. Take, for example, Kevin Love's attire displayed above. That's no Bugs Bunny joke: that's Minnesota's new jersey.

The NBA had a rookie photo shoot on Tuesday, which you can read about at TrueHoop and NBA.com. As TrueHoop relays, the league was super secretive about the new jerseys for three NBA teams -- so secretive the reps for those squads had to cover up in between photos.

But somehow, official NBA photographer Getty Images released some of the embargoed images on its website. After the jump, a full body shot of Love modeling, the same for Jason Thompson and the extra-purple Kings, and a hint from Courtney Lee on Orlando's new threads.

Here's Love in full. He means business!

I wish the Heat would get some new uni's, definitely would be the best uniforms ever if they did what I think they should do....I'll design some and send it to adidas and see what they say...

But I like the Kings uni's and the Magic uni's are always tight so nice upgrade...The T-Wolves uni's look the same aside from a little adjustment but it's ok...

The Magic jersey is supposed to be a pinstriped like the Shaq days. Can't wait to see the whole thing. The Miny Jerseys don't look good. Kings got some nice ones though.

What's with the TWolves logotype...aka font? Soooo cheesy. They have needed a new look since their inception, and that ain't it! Are they trying for the Fred Flintstones look?

YaaaBaDaaaBaDooooo!!

Man, I almost am glad the Sonics left Seattle. Stern sure knows how to ruin the NBA to an even greater degree.

(Note - I was being sarcastic about the Sonics deal)

The Links does not work.

Anyway i HATE when teams change logos and specially when they change uniforms.

Its much more annoying if they change colours.

Come on, you need colours to be true to.

Knicks have to be Blue and Orange, Celtics have to be Green and White ( i hate the Black letters) Bulls have to be Red and Black or Lakers have to be Purple and Yellow (to hell with the whites) other teams should have enough pride to do the same.

Please David Stern i plead that you make a rule that forbids at least this 4 teams to EVER change colours or logos please.

Well wolves have one of the most horrible logos in the league ( come on!!! the original was CLASSY!!!!) and have not had a decent Uniform since Cristian Laettner was their star.

They've removed the images from almost every site I've found, mostly because the NBA doesnt want them seen yet...

I found the image of K-Love sporting the hideous Timberwolves uniform:

uffgh wolves is even more terrible than the actual ones.


im not much fan about changes anyway.....

In fact the only changes i would welcome woudl be the sixers going back to red 80s jerseys and Knicks developing a third shirt in orange with blue letter.

I dont know about everyone else but I'm getting sick of all of these alternate jerseys. Why cant we just go back to 2 different jerseys, home and away? I got it! Merchandise! The thing about that is if they would make the jerseys the right way the 1st time then they wouldnt have to have all of these alternatives to make up for the losses.

I don't think anyone in this nation wants to go out and buy a jersey that will make them look like bums.
