Numerous NBA teams have been releasing previews of their new basketball uniform designs in preparation of this season. Fans are scrambling to keep track of all the new changes and voice their thoughts on new vs. old.

Some fans are disappointed at the simplifications the Phoenix Suns have made to their latest NBA uniforms. The more stylized sun/basketball design has been scrapped for something more straightforward. There is also some extra detail added around the collar and armbands, and Nike logo placement that looks like it will be across the board for all teams.

The Minnesota Timberwolves also opted for a simplified, more streamlined look with their jerseys this season. Bold color contrasts and clean lines dominate their new design features, along with the added Nike logo. Their sponsor, Fitbit, also earned a carefully-placed spot on the new uniforms.
