The design for the 2014 Christmas Day jerseys have leaked, thanks to Paul Lukas at UniWatch.
The concept art for the designs were taken from the adidas catalog, and Lukas has confirmed their authenticity.
Last season, the league wore sleeved uniforms, with large, monochrome logos on the front and numbers on the left sleeve.

Brian ErniAs many of you know, Lukas is the standard bearer for this kind of news. He’s the only full time uniform reporter, and he does one heck of a job. Last year, we worked together in conjunction to bring last year’s Christmas design to light, and I’m pleased to see him all over the story as a Uni Watch exclusive this season.
At first glance, my thoughts: I enjoy that there aren’t sleeves. I think the contrasting nameplate is a nice touch, however I really wish that they would have kept in it its traditional place above the numbers. Also, it’s a design like this that makes me lament the fact that the Nets don’t have a broader color scheme. I wish there was an outline to make the numbers pop a bit more, but that’s a whole other conversation. The Nets will also have a “pride” uniform for next season, one that is rumored to look like a Dr. J-era jersey rendered in black-and-white, but that design has not been confirmed yet.
