This has crossed my mind watching games and it made me chuckle that Zach Lowe brought it up.

10. Boston's green trim

I am very pro the trend of players accessorizing to match their uniforms. Several Miami guys are wearing pink or turquoise shoes to go along with their new Miami Vice jerseys, and the look is glorious to the point of distraction. I miss snippets of games because I am mesmerized by Wayne Ellington's [dang]ed pink sneakers.

Boston's players have taken this to a delightfully absurd extreme, outfitting themselves in green performance tights, sleeves, knee pads, elbow pads, shoes, socks, wristbands, and whatever else they can pile on without restricting their range of motion. Marcus Morris is slacking like Jennifer Aniston in "Office Space" here by going with only wristbands and socks:

...

What do you think of a person who only does the bare minimum, Marcus? Don't you want to express yourself?

When Boston wears all these pieces of flair and their classic green jerseys, they almost look like an army of NBA martians -- or Gumbys, or Jolly Green Giants.

(Also: I still contend Boston should start behind by five points any time they wear gray or black alternates. Write it into the next collective bargaining deal!)[/b]

  • A true Celtic plays with heart.
We have come a far way from back when players used to wear speedo shorts, and tall scrunch socks that come all the way up to their knees lol.

Love the black jerseys. Hate the grey. Love the matching accessories.
