The Celtics have donned a couple of road alternate uniforms over the years to go along with their usual classic design. This Christmas though in a matchup with the Brooklyn Nets in New York, the C’s will be sporting a new fully green look as seen above, which was unveiled by the NBA earlier today. Some details via the release:
The National Basketball Association (NBA) and its official oncourt apparel partner adidas will celebrate 65 years of Christmas Day games in a BIG way with the unveiling of special “BIG Color” uniforms that all 10 teams will wear on Dec. 25…
The uniforms feature a monochromatic color scheme with solid color team logos, names, and numbers framed with minimal accent color and a shimmer finish for a bold statement.
“We worked with adidas to amplify our long-standing tradition of playing on Christmas Day,” said NBA Executive Vice President Global Merchandising Sal LaRocca. “BIG Color gives our players an enhanced look on the court and highlights one of the most visible dates during our season with a new and exciting range of products.”
At first, I wasn’t sure about these, but they are growing on me. It remains to be seen whether the C’s will break them out at other points after Christmas during the regular season.
