Derrick Rose’s Jersey Is Still Popular


Derrick Rose has played in only 49 games during the last three seasons, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting his popularity. At least, not in NBA merchandise sales.

The NBA released its list of the top jerseys sold for this season, and Rose’s jersey pops up in fourth place, behind only LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant. Somewhat more remarkable is the fact that Rose’s jersey was ranked fifth last year.

So I guess the 10 games he managed to play this season helped spike sales.

New Illinois Uniforms

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 10.37.32 AM

Illinois has been hyping up its new uniform reveal for over a month now, and tonight is the night the school is finally going to show off its new look. Unfortunately for Illinois, the internet exists, and the internet has a way of spoiling the surprise.

On Tuesday night that surprise was spoiled, as pictures of the new uniforms leaked online. At least, we can only assume these are the uniforms for now, as Illinois hasn’t made them official yet. I tweeted photos of them last night, but in case you weren’t around, don’t worry. They’re all after the jump.

And by something special I mean they look like something I could have made using MS Paint back in the Windows 95 days.

I’m Already Tired Of This NBA T-Shirt Jersey Experiment


I really don’t know why the NBA is making the shift from regular old basketball jerseys to t-shirts, other than marketing purposes anyway, but it’s starting to look like the league is committed to the idea.

The Bulls have already worn the shirseys this season on Christmas (pictured up top), and there will be at least two more occasions when they bust out new versions of them.

The White Sox Are Keeping The ’83 Jerseys

This is excellent news for those of you who loved the 83 uniforms last year. Personally, I was not one of you. I don’t hate them or anything, but I don’t think they look nearly as good as so many of you seem to.

The main difference, aside from the hat, is that these won’t just be for Sunday home games anymore. The team can wear them whenever the hell they want.
