The Boston Celtics have a lot to look forward to this season. After objectively underwhelming for much of their 2020-21 campaign, they enter this year with fresh optimism.
Things like the front office trading away Jayson Tatum’s best friend have been forgotten. Danny Ainge’s bad decision-making and odd meltdowns are similarly a thing of the past. The 2021-22 NBA season is all about starting fresh and reemerging as a legitimate championship contender for Boston.
Unfortunately, it’s not all good news for Celtics fans.
This week, photos leaked online of the squad’s brand-new uniforms – and folks on Twitter weren’t really feeling it.
Doesn’t look nice

Why we have the worst city edition jerseys there is so much you can with black and green I’m partial to a Bean Town jersey with a Boston skyline would be nice.

Obviously this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Two weeks ago, the new Chicago Bulls uniforms got absolutely ravaged. The new Los Angeles Lakers jerseys also got very mixed reviews and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ attempts at switching things up sparked literal outrage.
It will be interesting to see how the powers that be ultimately handle this situation. Will they go back to the drawing board and change things up, or will they stay pat and hope for the best?
