Today, in a developer preview of NBA 2k13, the New York Knicks appeared on the court in what appears to be some new jerseys. We have known that the Knicks will be wearing something different this year, but no information regarding the extent of the change has surfaced. There’s no gaurentee these are the Knicks’ jerseys for the upcoming year, as 2k could just use them as a place holder, but it’s definitly possible these are the first images of the Knicks’ new jerseys.
The new jerseys have an updated color scheme, feature this logo on the left leg, this logo on the back, grey, orange and blue (consistent colors with their updated logo) piping on the shoulders and the end of the shorts.
One detail that makes me think these jersey are the real deal is the updated Knicks logo on the back of the jersey. We’ve seen the new logo used in new t-shirts on the NBA’s website, so seeing them on the jerseys in 2k13 links the new merchandise.
UPDATE: Some graphic mockups of the jerseys have now surfaced (thanks for the link, Nick), which Chris Creamer has also shown, which adds some clout. Take a look after the jump, but it appears most of the hints we uncovered were true: The letting on the front is much straighter, being the biggest change.
More images after the jump.
I like the new look, and think of them as an updated version of the early ’90s apparel, as seen here.
UPDATE: As Dylan has pointed out in the comments, the video from which these screen captures were pulled from has been marked as private. This means nothing, but it does raise some more speculation.
What do you think of the change?
