New York Knicks To Get New Uniforms? Possible NY Uniform Redesign
Some in the New York media Suggest That the New York Knicks Might Be Getting New Uniforms. Is a Knicks Uni Redesign a Good Idea?
The New York Knicks are considering new uniforms, according to a report in New York Newsday.
Newsday writer Alan Hahn wrote about a recent sports talk show host tweeted about the possibility of Knicks redesign. According to Hahn, the talk of updated Knicks uniforms may not just be wishful thinking.
According to a source, the Knicks have had internal discussions about making some minor changes to the uniform for the 2010-11 season. It doesn't sound like anything major is being planned, just a subtle tweak and update.
The Knicks may be due for new uniforms. The team hasn't had a uniform change since the 1997-98 season. At that time, the team added black to their traditional team colors: blue and orange. A similar move was made by the New York Mets.
New Knick uniforms could help the team turn over a new leaf. The team has struggled for years, especially during Isiah's Thomas' reign of error. Perhaps a new uniform might usher in a new era, one that fans hope includes LeBron James.
Hahn was inspired to write the Knicks uniform story, in part because of a series of Tweets from ESPN radio personality Brandon Tierney, who suggested that the team should get new uniforms.
Here are Tierney's original tweets:
'floated the idea of a possible logo/uniform overhaul...would you support it? Let's face it, the Knicks aren't the Celts or Lakers...'
'you can't lose the battle to the kids in the street, and right now...if I'm 13, 14 years old...I'm thinking the Knicks uni's are...lame.'
'Not a tweak, but rather a classy--albeit radical--uniform/logo change
it has been nearly 40 years since they've won. They're not the Yankees, despite the way they are depicted. What do you think?'
'WOW, huge response, PRO-change. Maybe I need to enlist my man @alanhahn to help. Very powerful man, clearly possesses the JU-ICE'
'and please stop telling me, it's not the uni's, it's the team--no kidding! You could improve the on-court product and also look better!'
