    Thunder Alternate jerseys inbound, says Sam Presti

    From dailythunder.com

    Thunder to wear alternate uniform this season
    Royce Young September 26th, 2012

    The Thunder will finally be wearing a third jersey this season.

    During his preseason press conference, Sam Presti said the team will be adding an additional uniform set.

    “We’re really excited about it,” Presti said. “We hope people like it. But the people wearing the uniform have to do the job.”

    The league has certain stipulations and regulations a team has to meet before an alternate can be added. As Presti said, it’s not like the team’s “just now getting around to it.” The league determines whether or not a team has sufficiently established their brand and then the team can proceed.

    As far as color, design or anything else, Presti wouldn’t give away a sneak peek. But he did say that Russell Westbrook didn’t have design input.

    “He’s just eye-wear.”
    And from Darnell Mayberry:

    Presti says the alternate is not a part of the league's annual Hispanic heritage celebration. It's an alternate that's designed by the team.
    Daily Thunder also noticed that these were added to the NBA Store recently--speculating that they may be related to the new jerseys:

    Oooh...

    I really hope the alternative jerseys have that "OKC" logo featured instead of "Oklahoma City" or "Thunder".

    I proposed this some time ago, ala the PHX jerseys sometimes worn by the Suns. OKC is a great brand to promote, both for the team and city.

    Yeah, there's no way they won't say OKC.

    ****

    I almost posted this a month ago, but decided it wasn't quite new-thread worthy. Paul Lukas, the "uniform guy" at ESPN, ranked OKC's uniforms 37th in all of professional sports:

    Very underrated. The home design is particularly strong -- one of the best in the league -- in large part because of the orange and gold trim, which really pops. The road design would probably be stronger if they put "City" below the uni number instead of stacking the two words, but it still works. Sort of amazing that they haven't come out with an "OKC" alternate yet, but that's presumably right around the corner.
    He's right. They really should put "City" below the number.

    The designs that are being leaked look pretty boring. Navy blue, meh. The current uniforms are traditional so I hope they change it up a little more than it appears.

    Leaked images for anyone who is curious based on the shorts and new graphics. As far as I know these are just mockups and nothing official.

    A part of me thinks these aren't it but they're consistent with other leaks and findings around the web. Truly disappointing if these are it.

    Remember, these are brought to you by the same people who picked the original logo and unis. To quote a local architect, "Oh, to have their money and my taste!" But seriously, these remind me of the new Brooklyn uniform. Maybe there's a trend towards monochromatic simplicity. And, their simplicity at least avoids the awfulness of some previous team's attempts to be artistic. To me the Minnesota Timberwolves' uni is one of the worst and this is certainly the antithesis of that style. I'll reserve judgement. The old log and uni have grown on me and this one may well too.

    I would discredit these, other than the color. Some have stated it will have the 'OKC' logo on the front.......any ones guess at this point.

    Could not agree more. This design would be very disappointing

    I beg to differ. I like the simplicity of the design. It echoes the old school Celtics jerseys.

    The Nuggets went retro with a merging of their current colors and the old skyline logo.
