Knicks unveil new, very orange alternate jerseys

I will work hard to avoid the easy Halloween/pumpkin jokes here…

What you see to the right is Carmelo Anthony modeling the Knicks new alternate orange jerseys, which they unveiled on Friday. Orange with blue and white has long been part of the Knicks color scheme, but this takes the orange up to a new level. Turns it up to 11, really.

At least it doesn’t have sleeves.

Over at the Knicks Web site you watch a video about the orange jerseys, plus of course you can purchase them at, because what’s the purpose of an alternate jersey if not to sell more jerseys?

This comes out one day after the Spurs unveiled a new camo, military-inspired uniform.

So, which one of these alternates would you buy:

Hat tip to Dan Devine at Ball Don’t Lie, who would totally wear an orange/camo combo uniform.

      Those gross pumpkin-colored uniforms are going to help the Knicks win anything this season. They are suitable for halloween though.

    Thats totally the wrong shade of orange.

    His arm-stockings are the correct shade of orange, the jersey clashes.

    beep! – “T” – bad uniform choice.

    i like alternate jerseys. the same unis all year would get boring. i think every team should have a few alternate and/or throwback unis they can wear throughout the season.

      I like the alternate jerseys as well.

      It definitely spices up the excitement factor.

      And Im sure they auction them off for charity and such, so its probably for a good cause.

      I just hate that color orange.
      It’s like, “are you playin ball or diging a hole along side the highway???”

        If by “good cause” you mean lining the owner’s pockets, then yes.

    Looks like Melo spilled Kool-Aid on his white Jersey

    He looks like a tall glass of Tang!!!

  11. louie311 - Oct 25, 2013 at 8:22 PM

  13. phx1311 - Oct 25, 2013 at 9:55 PM

    That shade of orange is awful.

    Maybe it can bring him back to his Syracuse days and he can win it all.
