Nike plus not updating
Just last month Adidas unveiled its new uniforms for the NHL, with most teams maintaining their previous designs.
So don't expect a full-scale league-wide makeover -- that's not going to happen.
Why doesn't Nike just tell all the teams that they have to get new designs? Nike is the vendor; the teams are the clients, and the client is king.
But at least we have two bits of indisputably solid information: On Tuesday, Nike released a photo of a new Warriors jersey that clearly shows a revised collar treatment and thinner numbers.For that matter, Adidas is still outfitting the current WNBA season, which extends well into September. Although the 2017-18 schedule won't be released until next month, commissioner Adam Silver has said that this season will begin on Oct. The idea is to extend the length of the season in order to reduce the number of back-to-back games, something players have long complained about.But that means there will be less time between the unveiling of the new uniforms and the season tipoff. It depends on what you mean by "new." Every team will be changing over from Adidas to Nike, which means there will be leaguewide changes in tailoring, fabrics and so on.The information that Nike provided today included mention of larger armholes and a "tweaked collar shape." The Nike logo will also be added to all jerseys and shorts (except for the Hornets, who'll be wearing the Jordan Brand logo because Michael Jordan owns the team).We know that some teams will definitely be getting new uniform designs.
