There seems to be a concerted effort across the league to make jerseys successively more hideous.

Those are hideous. Big fan of the Miami Vice style jerseys for the Heat though.

Fake news, these are 🔥

Terrible.  These look like some European club soccer uniforms.  Brutal.

The fact that they took away the "old school" white jerseys from last year to make these...as bad as it gets.  The whites were as clean of a look as you could find.

Didn't know Nike brought in a guest designer

I go back and forth depending on the picture.  I honestly think its one of the more creative ones given the inspiration.  Kudos for that.

There seems to be a concerted effort across the league to make jerseys successively more hideous.

This isn't an every day jersey.  Its special edition, city inspired 4th jerseys.  And another example of the NBA "getting it".  This is the kind of mood that creates buzz, good and bad, and also drives merch sales cause these looks  are usually like NOTHING else the teams have, so it can inspire purchases that wont look like every other Bucks/Bulls/etc... piece of apparel you have.

The Heat Miami Vice jerseys are A+++.
The purple Prince themed Twolves jersey is A+++
The Denver Nuggets white with pastel rainbow mountains like the old logo is A++++

Bulls black with the Chicago flag is pretty good.  Brooklyn with the Coogi sweater colored lining in honor of the Notorious BIG is really solid.  The ones that fail are just half assed changes in color or fonts.  Credit to the Bucks for not falling into that trap like the Wizards, Hornets, Magic, that Ive seen so far.

I love the jerseys.

I think they are only wearing them once or twice.

If Milwaukee is going to produce this type of crap, Seattle can have the franchise.

Exactly.  I think the Brooklyn one is so good that they should keep it for their everyday jersey.

Last year's Cream-City jersey was a bit of a disappointment.  The MECCA jersey hits it out of the park.

EDIT:  I used to say this about Oregon athletics.  They knew they had to be different and flashy to get kids to want to play there and to grab attention.  The Bucks have to do the same thing.  They aren't the Packers who have a tradition to rest on.  They aren't the Celtics or the Lakers.  This is what creates buzz.  (Along with one of the best young players in the game today.)

I'm not sure flashy uniforms translate the same way in the NBA as they do in the NCAA. Mainly due to $$$ reasons. That being said, with the amount of Nike sway Oregon has, I have no idea how they aren't a top 5 program in basically everything.

Because they're in Oregon.  Don't get me wrong, Eugene is a lovely place.  But they have to get players to bypass all sorts of other, local schools to play there.  For instance, they used to make hay in the Seattle area when UW was struggling.  Now that Chris Peterson is there, it's harder to get the better players to head south.

I wish they could have done a little better with the top. The shorts are dynamite.

A tough thing to execute, but why not take a shot at it?

Someone came up with this alternate version for the Bucks that is so much better.

Those are even worse.

Honestly, that court was ugly as can be.  They should continue to pay homage to the past the same way they did last year, with the sweet throwback white uniforms.  Those were the best uniforms in the NBA.  These are maybe the worst I've ever seen.

The white throwbacks you keep mentioning, the Cream City ones?

The "Classic Edition" ones in the middle.  In my opinion, as good as it gets.  Honorable mention to the Knicks NYC Fire Department uniforms and the Nuggets with the miner pick from last year.

Aww, gotcha.  Those were nice, super clean.

I always like these from the 70's, haven't seen these revived ever.

I didn't like when Kohl removed the red from the Bucks color scheme.

He needs to add about 20 pounds, but yes, he's going to be a nice player.
