The new Celtics alternate jersey

John - Red's Army (@RedsArmy_John) November 12, 2012 Celtics News 19 Comments on The new Celtics alternate jersey

The NBA announced today that Boston and the nine other teams playing on Christmas day will be wearing new alternate jerseys.  In a press release, the league said:

 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.

I did a quick search of the NBA store came up with this jersey listed as the “Big Color” Swingman jersey… and it fits the description… so I’m going to assume that this is it.

I still like the St. Patrick’s Day alternates best.  What do you guys think?

    I would like the team to have an alternate jersey with yellow/gold trim along the letters, much like what they did with their championship gear worn in 2008, and how bout making it Vneck for a change.

      celtics have never had a v-neck….and they never should.

      • CelticsKid34

        AGREED v-necks are retarded and take away from the traditional look the Celtics always have

    • Drew

      V neck? That makes me angry.

  • Yeah, I’m not feeling this at all. Doesn’t really stand out very much. Just a change to make a change, I guess. And to grab some extra money from fans.

  • Matt W

    I don’t like these at all.

  • Curt

    I’d like another ring and a banner. That is all that matters. Jerseys are irrelevant.

  • RedsLoveChild

    The record shows that the Celtics perform better on the road when their jersey`s read “BOSTON”.

    • APC

      you can’t argue with that 😉

      I love the C’s classic jerseys. I wish they could wear them more often.

  • Jayfox

    It’s just a Christmas jersey. Who cares…btw my favorite ones are the black and green.

  • JBcelticsFan

    Eh, they could have been more creative with it but as long as they win I dont really care. Nothing beats those St Patrick uni’s though. Freshest uni’s in the NBA by far.

    Yikes, I’m not gonna lie…those are hideous. I loved the St. Patty’s Day alternates though! Those were sick.

  • CelticsKid34

    if its christmas dont you think they would have a little red??? i mean cmon its just green… just green and less white… that doesnt make any sense. then the players will have to wear red shoes and headbands and theyll look f-ing stupid with green and red not coexisting…

  • 76th

    Like it! Green and green, that’s solid.

    Never liked the St.Patrick’s jerseys… those gold numbers, ugh… gold is for glamorous chicks, not for a bunch of tough bastards. Alternates with black numbers are the best by far.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    I like em, greend out. Take out the white trim even.

  • Bill

    St. Paddy’s are fab. More, please.

  • Drew

    Hate it. If it were up to me they would wear the “Boston” throw backs every game. I wish professional sports weren’t such a fashion show nowadays. All the stupid shoes and jerseys. Go play ball. I could care less what you are wearing.
