The Boston Celtics have teased fans about what their newest “City Edition” jersey will look like for the 2023-24 season.
On top of that, a number of new looks at the design of the Celtics’ new alternate uniforms have also leaked on the Internet, which of course remains undefeated. If you care to hear my major complaint with last season’s Celtics City Edition jersey, it was the color scheme. It just looked too similar to the shade of green on the Milwaukee Bucks’ regular uniforms.
Whenever the Celtics wore those jerseys against the Bucks, it was borderline painful to watch. It’s still not that hard to follow an NBA game in terms of which team has the ball, but the sameness of the C’s and Bucks’ jerseys and the meh overall design of the “City Edition” made the games less than aesthetically pleasing.
Unfortunately, it appears that the Celtics are not going to solve that jersey color problem with their new “City Edition” jerseys. It’s understandable that they wouldn’t want the same exact green that you see on their classic uniforms, but it’s just annoyingly similar to Milwaukee. That looks to be staying.
However, there’s one key change for the new alternate jerseys, that will more closely relate them to the ones that fans are using to seeing. The Celtics’ new City Edition jersey features new, simplified lettering, as they’ve ditched the cursive style of last year’s look. The result is a better overall uniform.
Check out the Celtics’ own teaser of their latest alternate uniforms, which they released on their X account on Wednesday. But there have been other apparent leaks going around on the platform, and we’ll look at those, too.
