With no live Celtics games in the past two months, we've seen plenty of "Classic Celtics" contests that featured one of the NBA's iconic uniforms - the home white C's jerseys or green road one. One uni we haven't seen and will probably never see again?

Those gray ones with the sleeves from the 2014-15 season.
How bad were those? They rank fifth-worst in ESPN's list of the worst NBA jerseys of all-time.
Those C's threads come in just between the Golden State Warriors 2012-13 sleeved alternates at fourth-worst and a red Los Angeles Clippers road jersey from 2015-17 at No. 6. The worst, according to the rankings by ESPN's Ryan McGee, that distinction goes to these Sacramento Kings gold jobs from '05-06 (Hello, Bonzi Wells driving on old friend Ray Allen, then with the Seattle SuperSonics):
McGee compares those gray C's jerseys to other ruined classics such as New Coke in 1985 and Godfather III in 1990. The Celtics went to a green-and-gold alternate this season to mixed reviews and in recent years have had many different iterations of their uniforms, even going to gray sleeveless "city edition" ones a few years ago that seem to have mercifully disappeared as well.
