Washington Wizards point guard John Wall was in New York City on Tuesday as part of the NBA rookie orientation and photo shoot, and thanks to the pictures, which have been uploaded on NBA.com, and a few video interviews given by the rookie, we were able to see that the Wizards have tweaked their jerseys for the upcoming season.
Here's a picture of Wall from the photo shoot. As you can see, the Wizards still will be rocking the slate blue, black and white as their main colors, but it looks like a slightly lighter gold/yellow has replaced the bronze trim from years past.
The most noticeable difference in the jerseys are the V-necks and more modern shoulders instead of the traditional scoop necks/tank-top style the team has sported for years, see the team's Facebook page for pictures of last year's jerseys.
Wall did an interview with ESPN today, and it's evident that another tweak added to the Wizards' jerseys are subtle stripes that show up in various lights.
Wizards fans have been asking for a change since before Ted Leonsis' total take-over of the team was finalized. Many wanted -- and still want -- Leonsis to bring back the Bullets, as well as the red, white and blue of yesteryear. Name and color changes take time, however. But obviously tweaks such as these do not. It looks like the changes only apply to the road jerseys, however. On the team's page at NBAstore.com, the white home jerseys look the same, aside from a slightly smaller collar.
Is this enough to satisfy you, Wizards fans? What do you think? Hot, or not?
