Pacers Intro Short-Sleeve Jerseys, To Roy Hibbert’s Displeasure

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last season the Golden State Warriors went all fashion-forward and rocked jerseys with short sleeves. No, they weren’t Evansville University, but they were an attempt by adidas and the NBA to do something different. Me, I kind of liked the look, because while I can’t wear a tank top jersey out to dinner, a jersey that is essentially a t-shirt is a bit more acceptable.

Now the Indiana Pacers are taking the plunge — at least temporarily. According to Pacers PR man David Benner, the Pacers will wear short-sleeved jerseys in their summer league games.

Soon after Benner posted the jerseys, Pacers C Roy Hibbert let his feelings be known…

    I hate those jerseys! The warriors looked terrible last season wearing what basically was a t shirt. Don’t get rid of proper jerseys please!

    If the league decides to switch to those short sleeve jersey then damn. They are ugly as hell. If players want to wear a sleeve they can just wear one under the current jersey…..When I saw Golden State playing in them, they almost looked like soccer players to me haha xD

    T-shirt jerseys are absolutely ridiculous. The Warriors looked like a soccer team out there with those jerseys.
