New Knicks uniforms on the way?

I’m certainly a little behind on this but word on the street is the Knicks might be getting some new uniforms this year. Apparently the writing has been on the wall – the Knicks Wall, in fact – for the last few weeks, but yesterday images of a developer preview of NBA 2K13 leaked showing the ‘Bockers in some refreshed duds.

From all the evidence gathered, it sure seems the Knicks are ready to move on from their “we made these in the 90’s and everything had to have black in it” uniforms and go to a blue/orange/gray scheme.

I, for one, am a big fan of that decision. While the piping that goes over the shoulders and then just ends is a little strange looking, it’s nice to see the Knicks tip the cap a little bit back to the days of Bernard King. The “New York” across the front is straight instead of curved and the logo on the back is also different.

The only thing that could make these better is if the Knicks throw in an alternate orange uniform.
