It’s basketball news in August, y’all.
Besides the typical improvement rankings, ESPN continued to rank NBA teams during the offseason, but today they’ve ranked NBA uniforms for every respective team in the league.
Your beloved Washington Wizards were placed 7th, just behind the NBA Champions Miami Heat which were ranked 6th.
Even though I personally love the Wizards’ relatively new jerseys, I think people tend to like the jerseys because the previous ones were pretty hideous. Wizards owner, Ted Leonsis, has made an effort to have matching colors between all of his Washington owned sports teams, including the Capitals.
As more teams begin to experiment with short sleeved jerseys (I’m really hoping the Wizards don’t go down that road), I’d be ecstatic if the Wizards introduced an alternate jersey in the near future.
Nevertheless, it’s great to get some positive pixels heading towards the Washington Wizards, even if it’s merely about their uniforms. Hopefully they’ll represent the red, white and blue color scheme in a winning manner this upcoming season.
