More sleeved Warriors jerseys? A Raptors throwback? Team-integrated All-Star uniforms?

Feb 5, 2014, 3:11 PM EDT

Paul Lukas – who broke news of the Brooklyn Nets developing a black-and-white, stars-and-stripes uniform – is back with a few more scoops.

There are no pictures, but Lukas’ source provides descriptions of:

  • Two new sleeved Warriors jerseys
  • A sleeved Magic jersey
  • A new version of the Raptors’ original purple uniform
  • 2015 All-Star warmups
  • Possible templates for the 2015 All-Star uniforms

Put me in the no column for sleeved jerseys. I don’t find them aesthetically appealing, and I find it hard to believe they’ll sell well considering how often players complain about them.

But I love the idea of the Raptors wearing something like this again. It would probably be as an alternate jersey, considering their push toward black and gold. But a few nights a year is the perfect amount for that dribbling Tyrannosaurus Rex to grace NBA courts.

The All-Star warmups – hooded in a boxing style – also get a thumbs up from me. But that’s only because the 2015 All-Star Game will be at Madison Square Garden, a venue with a proud boxing history. Anywhere else, that would be too corny.

Most of all, the possible 2015 All-Star uniforms excite me most. Lukas said they’re in this style. What a perfect way for players to represent their teams at the All-Star Game and still wear a new jersey that can be sold. I’d love to see all the slightly clashing uniforms on the court at once.

    I’ve been waiting for the purple jersey with the huge red dino throwback for years now. This is long overdue. Is the jersey cheesy? Absolutely, but it’s also fun and unique and represents a modern team like the Raptors well. Not every jersey HAS to be classic and traditional because not every franchise is classic and traditional.

    With all the body armor and compressions players wear,how can sleeved jerseys bother them. yes,the Raptors need a color overhaul,but the mascot is unique. I kinda wished they’d gone another route with that,but hey,he’s here and the name is here so live with it. Hooded warm ups. Not a new idea.
