A few of the official Dallas Mavericks jerseys have now made their presence on Twitter. Although they are similar to the old ones, the subtle differences can be seen right away.
Earlier on twitter, the Dallas Mavericks official twitter account tweeted a picture of Dennis Smith Jr. in the new Nike NBA jerseys. The deal with Nike on the new jersey designs has been long awaited and people are excited to see what they are going to look like. Well wait no longer, as two of the new Mavs jerseys are now visible to the public.
This new set of jerseys are an exciting change for the NBA as the Nike sponsorship is sure to be more fluid with its new designs and updated looks on hopefully even a yearly basis. If you don’t believe me on that, just think of how many different uniforms the Oregon Ducks have. It certainly won’t be that crazy, but changes will be made much more frequently.
At first glance, the most noticeable change is obviously the big Nike swoosh on the jersey and on the shorts. After that, the first thing that I saw was a definite change in the color of the uniforms. The bright blue that the Mavs used to wear appears to be a thing of the past and this new color looks to be more of a royal blue.
This jersey is known as the “icon edition” according to the source from mavs.com. It will have some more minor changes in overall look, but the biggest change (which cannot be seen in the picture above) will be a star on the waistband located right in the center.
This jersey, as well as the “association edition” are viewable from the source above, whereas the last two jerseys that will be released, known as the “statement edition”, and the “city edition” will be released later on in the season, according to Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com.
With news hard to come by around this time of year, it is fun to see the changes that the NBA is making with the uniforms. Although this change is not significant until the season starts, the new Nike uniforms look great and it will be exciting to see what they come up with next.
