This Proves NBA Teams Have Too Many Different Jerseys

This Proves NBA Teams Have Too Many Different Jerseys | Sports Takes & News |

In an era where sports teams seem to have a different jerseys for every game of the season, two teams took the court for an NBA game Friday night and looked so much alike in their jerseys that one team needed to change their clothes at halftime. For me, this proves one thing: NBA teams have too many uniforms and need to stop trying make everyone happy with jerseys during the season.

The NBA saw Atlanta visit Oklahoma City Friday night with the road Hawks donning solid red jerseys and the host Thunder wearing an orange jersey that was very close to those of their opponents. The color clash was made worse by the Thunder having orange on their court in both lanes leading up to each basket. 

While officially Atlanta was wearing the “wrong” color uniform, since the Hawks, believe it or not, only have one colored uniform for road games, their red ones, it was Oklahoma City who clashed with them, which is why the Thunder were forced to switch to their traditional white jerseys at halftime in their 118-109 win.

I credit the Atlanta Hawks for saving all their alternate jerseys for home games and using only one jersey for road game. Where I have an issue is the need for teams to have so many jerseys at all.

Yeah, I know teams like to make money that is shared with the players, but would it hurt teams to wear white uniforms at home more often, or at least know their opponents have red jerseys and not wear orange ones? I would also think that having a uniform color that matches the colors on the court would be bad for television audiences, perhaps forcing team to have alternate courts to match their uniforms.

I don’t mind alternate uniforms for special occasions such as holidays that happen during the season or special events and/or people they wish to honor, but a game at the end of February between two teams that only see each other twice a season is probably not one of those special games. And while not a common occurrence, NBA teams should also try to make sure color clashes don’t happen again that force teams to use their halftime break to change uniforms.

Perhaps too, the NBA should teach their referees to not begin games when teams are almost dressed alike in their jerseys.
