SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — After months of anticipation, the Phoenix Suns unveiled their new uniforms tonight in Scottsdale’s Fashion Square Mall.
As you can see from the accompanying photos, the Suns will wear a white home jersey with orange lettering, a purple road jersey and a sleeved all-orange alternative jersey. Oddly enough, of the five current Suns who took part in the fashion unveiling, three said the orange, sleeved alternates were their favorites while the other two said the purple road jerseys stood out.
Alex Len said he was comfortable with sleeves after playing with Under Armour versions at Maryland, while Caron Butler added he practiced last season with very similar sleeved jerseys with the Clippers as Adidas slowly brought them along.
The Suns introduced the jerseys in a ceremony MC’ed by long-time broadcaster Al McCoy that featured Suns players from every era wearing their jersey from that time period.
As Greg Esposito detailed, the Suns are optimistic that the new jerseys along with a new coach and general manager can tangibly provide the organization with a fresh start as the rebuilding process post-Nash continues in full force.
Overall, the reaction to the new threads seems leaning toward the negative side of things, but we suppose a good bit of that is to-be-expected?
