OAKLAND – The Warriors will debut their new slate-colored jerseys Saturday night, and they plan to wear them for every Saturday game this season.
All-Star point guard Stephen Curry likes the color, if not the style.
The problem? They have sleeves, which have been unpopular with the vast majority of players who have worn them in the NBA.
"I hate the sleeves," Curry said after Friday's practice, ahead of the game against the Hornets on Saturday night at Oracle Arena.
But the dark, almost black, color is something he likes. A lot.
"I've seen them with fans coming to the arena with them on, and thought we should wear those in a game," Curry said. "Now we're finally getting to do it, so it should be fun."
The sleeves, it seems, are not going away soon. Curry seems resigned to that.
"We'll be fine," he said, referring to potential issues with the sleeves. "I'm not going to worry about shooting in them. If I had to pick, I'd say keep the traditional."
