The ‘infamous’ sleeved jerseys may be coming to an end soon. It’s good to see people willing to make change because sometimes it’s needed, but that wasn’t the case here.
UniWatch spoke with a buyer for a “well-known chain of sporting good stores” and the buyer revealed that the NBA sleeved jerseys are “not selling well.“
When dealing with rich people, you’ll notice they don’t like major change.
The sleeved jerseys, in a small but significant sample size, made absolutely no impact on shooting percentages last season, but that isn’t the point. NBA players are slavish to routine, from literal head to toe. They didn’t grow up wearing these sorts of jerseys, and they’re vocally uncomfortable about change this far into their careers. That’s usually the case, with most rich dudes.
I may be the only person in the world that actually likes the sleeved uniforms.
