I dig it... I'm not afraid of change.

But it shouldn't bother the act of shooting, of course.

UGLY!!!

Despite apparent perception, basketball players' underarms really aren't their most attractive features.

Good thing that I don't have to wear one of those!

I would look like Michael Sweetney, if I did.

More space to utilize when they get around to allowing ads on jerseys.

Not as bad as I'd expect them to be.  That being said, I hope it doesn't become the norm, either.

Looks a lot like the current incarnation of rugby jerseys.

We are trying way too hard with jerseys.

Dwight Howard is thrilled with this at least.

Did they play a game with those new unis yet? The whole idea of a sleeveless uniform is to not impede arm movement in a game where shooting is key.

Maybe this new uniform is the only way to cool off the outside shooting of Curry (45% from three).  Sleeved basketball jerseys make no sense to me at all.

Very unflattering for a player with long, skinny, cut, arms, which is a pretty typical NBA body type.

Sleeves do not belong on basketball jersey's, it's stupid.  I couldn't care less what parts of a basketaball players body are attractive or not.

It makes perfect sense for the NBA....

The current jerseys do not provide enough advertising space...

In order to properly desecrate the beautiful traditional jerseys one must change their form to provide more surface area for the greed to be properly applied...
