So the new CavFanatics Jersey (kit as the futbol folks call it) had their debut yesterday vs. the Knickerbockers… and they are again a combination of colors that were never meant to be together.

The jersey page is here
The breakdown: They look to be a combo of the 1987-1994 “Price Era” jerseys and the present day Uni’s. The 80′s blue with the modern rendition of wine and gold. What I thought really looked good is the bringing back of the CAVS on the front. I don’t think we should ever go back to CAVS on our primary home uni, but I like the idea of it on the alternate. If it gets a good response, we could see it used again once we are allowed to introduce an alternate jersey next year (league makes you wait 2 years after changing your jerseys before you can introduce an alt).
Verdict: All in all, they are OK I guess. Not great, but not bad.
Definitely not as bad as last years abomination or even the originals.
The whole CavFanatic jersey thing is a weird thing. Is the organization going to end up with a hundred different jerseys? At this rate they will. We are already up to 30 (THIRTY?!?!?) jerseys in the history of the organization (actually 31 if you count the one game they did Miracle Jersey throwbacks in 1997).
So anyways, yeah. I already ordered mine (rocking an Irving #2). It’ll be here next week.
