Cavaliers release new uniforms

The Cavaliers’ new wine uniforms leaked a couple weeks ago, but the team provides a better view and its new white uniforms:

These are both busier and bolder than the previous sets.

The ads, team name, numbers, waistband wording and side stripes are a lot of elements. The wine jerseys, with nine-letter “Cleveland,” look especially cluttered.

The waistbands are now solid. They were wine-and-gold striped on the previous version, as were the bottom of the shorts. Especially with the navy blue numbers on the wine jersey, this creates a bolder look.

I don’t like the jagged numbers – especially Kyrie Irving’s No. 2. Maybe Cleveland will trade him to solve that problem. (LeBron James’ 2 next to the 3 doesn’t look quite as jarring by comparison.)

Overall, these are a downgrade from the previous uniforms, but they’re still solid.
