My first reaction was, well... I don't know what to think. Most likely, the look will grow on me, I just hope it won't become a huge trend and I hope the Celtics never do something like this. Obviously, they are doing it to sell more jerseys in Europe and other regions, where many people like to wear soccer shirts/jerseys. Smart move by the Dubs organization and Adidas.

May aswell make a tight soccer style long sleeved top too considering all the arm sleeve type stuff guys wear these days.

If you had a long game, an overtime maybe, wouldn't your sweat just make the sleeves really irritating and mess with your shot?

I haven't seen "live" the new material they make these jerseys from, but I know it's much different than the old material. Anyone who has ever played in a real basketball jersey knows how sweaty they get during a game  ;D

Anyways...

Look at the pattern from the shoulders and on down. You could probably do a pattern down the sleeves, I guess.

The sleeves would fit tight, of course.

It's uhhh, meh. I don't like it.

Being a Warriors fan as well, I hope they discontinue this. Most of my folks don't dig it as well, heck, my friends and their friends don't dig it. What is up with the Dubs?

Perhaps a "speed skating style" body suit to increase speed?  :-X

I run long distances and those tight compression style shirts don't really have that affect.  Regular old T-shirts do, but not the compression wear.  The shirts appear to be the compression style stuff so I suspect that won't be an issue.

Not a fan.

And I like others would think the sleeves would effect my shot negatively and restrict my arm movements.

I like I like. Lower the temp in the building one degree and save a ton of money and energy and make the other team cold.  Maybe pull up the socks too
