We were overdue for a new basketball thread and our hometown Nuggets are kicking off the 2017-18 season with fresh jerseys!

Much better. Kinda looks like a mix of the Jazz and Grizzlies but dropping that sky blue makes the uniform look so much better.

Woohoo!! Only 69 Days until the Suns ready themselves for another bottom 10 year and get ready to stack their young core.

Tomorrow i will find pics of the Suns new jerseys they are getting as well. I love the old school Nuggets stuff, but these are cool too.

You assume Cleveland won't bend them over for Kyrie though. Which is admittedly unlikely.

Im assuming that our Front Office is not willing to make a deal that messes with #TheTimeline if they have to deal Josh Jackson or cannot reach a deal with Kyrie long term

Suns should have a heck of a core if they develop Bender and Jackson to pair with Booker.
Booker, Bledsoe, Jackson, Bender is a nice core.

Whereas I have to wait to see if the Bulls will suck hard enough to get the top pick and land a franchise changing star so a core #1 OA, LaVine, Markkanen and Dunn is palatable.

Those are f'n awful...another dark blue jersey. And they're boring as hell to boot.
About the only thing interesting is did Denver get a jersey ad patch? Who is the sponsor?

It's not a destination franchise so you have to keep the guys you develop. Too hard to gain young assets in the NBA to let him walk.

Love Josh Jackson. Best player among the rookies, but L.A. will likely steal Rookie Of The Year.

I don't love the plain Jane Nugget unis. That's really the best they could do?

I think they were trying to accomplish a more generic look that appealed to a more casual fan.

The rumor is the other 2 jerseys will be much better, more fun, whatever. Yeah I'm not keen on these 2 at all. Boring to the max.


Speaking of max, Harris is a stud and he will get paid.

Yea, those are super lame. There's nothing more boring than another indistinguishable navy jersey. Eff you, Nike!

We traded Gary Harris and Jusuf Nurkic(the 2 players I wanted in that draft)for Doug McDermott. *shudders*

Life as a wizards fan sucks. Crappy GM and we're constantly in nba purgatory.

Too good for good draft picks, not good enough to win the east.

If there was no Lebron James, you guys can get there.

If I was a Bullets fan, i'd take it year by year.

Lets see how he produces this year. You don't throw the max at avg/good starters.

I wouldn't say stud, but he's an improving player. Need to see another year out of him, and if that not sure he's worth the MAX.

It's really all there is to it. The jersey is awful. Nuggets have a problem with their logo(pitch fork) that doesn't represent anything interesting and/or nobody cares.

The alternates should be better as they can't be any worse.

In this current era of the NBA, unfortunately you have to.
But Harris is a stud. Harris, Jokic, Murray are going to be a nice core. They just need Mudiay to get his head out of his ass.
