Warriors Play First Game In New Short-Sleeve Jerseys; Debut Receives Mixed Reaction
Published February 25, 2013
TWITTER REAX: Comcast SportsNet Bay Area's Ric Bucher wrote based on initial reactions to the jerseys, "their fate appears similar to the new-age ball the NBA tried to introduce for the 2006-07 season." Bucher: "I'm all for innovation and change and advances in technology, but as any baller will tell you, the $%^& has to look right, more so in hoops than any other sport since the cameras and fans are so close and the uniforms have less to them than any other sport." ESPN's J.A. Adande: "I like the Warriors sleeved jerseys. Not so much for the players, but because it will be the 1st authentic jersey that looks good on fans." Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears tweeted, "Thought the Warriors uniforms were too tight and worst before waking to NFL OL prospects running in embarrassing tightness. Please stop it."
