It seems a lot in these playoffs where the home team is wearing a darker jersey now whereas in the past it used to always be the lighter color. Kinda like the NFL who uses the darker color jersey at home. Was something mentioned on this that this was going to be the new thing?

Oh, yeah. Part of the new uniform policy/Nike jersey promotion. The teams are now allowed to choose nearly whatever jersey they want, so long as it doesn’t clash with the opposing team, e.g. both can’t wear white.

A minor annoyance, along with the jerseys being far less durable and prone to ripping, but I have enjoyed the influx of cool new designs, e.g. “City”, “Signature”, and “Flex”, I believe.

The new styles and colors are cool, but when the home team wears their typical away jersey and vice versa, it’s just annoying.

Lots of folks still aren't fond of it nor accustomed to it yet, for reasons I stated. It also doesn't make the home team stand out as much when they simply just wear the away jersey and the road team wears a white jersey or an "Association" jersey (like the Lakers wearing gold on the road). It'll take some getting used to.

Oh, and to clarify to the OP, it's been going on all season long. I'm still not used to it.

Call me old fashioned/lame, but I hate it lol.

I like traditional, timeless jersey's. They shouldn't be changed more than once a decade, in my opinion.

Teams should have jersey sets for eras, not games.

The redskins were one of the last teams to switch to wearing the non-white jersey at home... so there was a season where it felt like they wore white all 16 games.

The only issue I have is this. Team #1 has colors A,B,C,D,E to choose from and Team #2 has colors D,E,F,G,H and they both decide at some point to wear D and E colors together in the same game. It's so confusing when you tune in. They can easily pick colors that do not overlap on each other's logos.
