Following their first round playoff exit, head coach Quin Snyder resigned from the Utah Jazz. Though they have yet to hire their next head coach, the team has been moving along in their coaching search. But the latest news out of Utah comes from the franchise quietly revealing new jerseys on Friday.
They’ve drawn mixed reviews thus far, but you can judge them for yourself.
Utah Jazz bring back the mountains
Here are the latest jerseys the Jazz plan to wear during the 2022-23 season, as revealed by the team’s official Twitter page.
Fans will be happy to see the Jazz go back to their roots, incorporating the mountains once again, and they pulled it off. In my opinion, the organization’s decision to bring back the mountains is an excellent one.
The mountains are spectacular, but the other new jerseys? Terrible. They look like soccer kits. I’ve seen high school basketball uniforms that have more intricate designs than this. They should head back to the drawing board, but I guess this is what they’ll go with, sadly.
For whatever reason, I’m particularly partial to black jerseys, but Utah’s newest version is so simple, arguable too simple. Whereas the mountains are littered with details that help make them awesome in every aspect. That just isn’t the case for the black, white, or yellow jersey designs. Honestly, it feels half-assed. It’s not a good look.
If their latest jersey designs have any indication of how things will look around Utah in the post-Quin Snyder era, they’re in for a long decade. Let’s hope that’s not the case for Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, or whoever is left on the roster by the time the season opens up again in October.
