Boston Celtics Will Debut Sleeved Jerseys For St. Patricks Day


Sleeved jerseys are sweeping the NBA, giving Adam Silver more ad space to sell on uniforms giving teams a new look to play with. The Celtics will get in on the action on Monday with special St. Patrick’s Day uniforms when they take on Dallas.

Here’s Jerryd Bayless sporting the look:

As you can see, Boston’s sleeved jersey is simply an extension of a design the team has used in the past for St. Patrick’s Day, which might lessen the shock of the new look a little bit. A couple more thoughts after the jump.

Sleeved jerseys are generally reviled by fans and commentators alike, many of whom wonder if the added fabric on a player’s upper arms might throw off his shot. Others think jerseys like these look like pajama outfits. They aren’t really wrong.

That being said, I like them. I don’t have a good reason for it, except that I like change and I like new jerseys. Many people disagree, which is fine, and if the sleeves really are throwing off players’ shots (both LeBron James and Steph Curry have already claimed that they do) then they aren’t worth the hassle at all, since they would be hurting the product. But as long as they are a harmless new look, I’m all in.

    I hope that these sleeved jerseys are only a passing fancy and not something that’s here to stay

    Looks good, I don’t mind them for a few games each season.
    But if the players overall feel they’re impacting their games, they have to go.
    LeBron whines about anything when he loses, Durant said it doesn’t effect shots.
