Boston fans have been patiently waiting to catch a glimpse of the fourth jersey design to be worn during the 2017-2018 season. Thanks to the always popular NBA2K franchise, it appears we now know what these jerseys will look like. And let me tell you, these new C’s jerseys are …
… grey. Yes, it seems we will have at least one more season with grey Celtics jerseys, though these are at least sleeveless. I’ll be honest I’m not overly surprised. A Nike version of the Boston grey seemed like an obvious choice - and these look pretty good. Much like championship banners, traditional jersey designs are an integral part of the Celtics’ history and culture. The entire list of leaked jerseys can be seen here.
If this was my decision, though? The St. Patrick’s Day-inspired uniforms are just too beautiful to wear only once or twice a season.
Seriously, these are perfect. Let’s ditch this grey look and make the gold and green more than a seasonal occurrence. I’d love to see these jerseys more often.
