New Suns jerseys: Who likes them and who doesn't

Forget any amateur design tips. The biggest sign of progress for the Phoenix Suns as they moved into a new era during Thursday night’s uniform unveiling was the presence of four newcomers and the most marketable player in the league signed as a 12th-man — P.J. Tucker.

But of all the old and interesting enough faces in Scottsdale for the Suns fashion show — Dick Van Arsdale, Pat Burke, Steven Hunter and Casey Jacobsen, among others — it was Alex Len walking onto the runway without two cumbersome protective boots around his ankles. That means he’s on track to return for training camp.

Caron Butler, who might be assumed to be watching his wristwatch that’s ticking down to his free agency, said the showing of fans was a good sign; at least, it was better than hearing crickets.

All is well — consider that the Suns’ uniform reveal was probably the lowest P.R. moment of the offseason and there have been worse days.

CBS Sports’ Matt Moore had a funny take on the unis with a fun quote-bubble-filled picture at the bottom. Sports uniform and logo expert Chris Creamer isn’t a huge fan.

But what did the fans think? It didn’t go over all that well. But, hey, worse things have happened.
