Long sleeved jerseys might have seemed like a great idea to the NBA's marketing team, but the reviews from star players have been less than stellar. LeBron James had a pretty poor game Thursday night and made it clear that he thought the uniform's design was to blame. "I'm not making excuses, but I'm not a big fan of the jerseys," James told the press. "Every time I shoot it feels like it's just pulling right up underneath my arm." And while we can more than sympathize with him, at the least he didn't have to go through some of these horror shows that past players had to ignobly suffer. Herewith, we present worst jerseys in NBA history.

Bad enough the Knicks had to play on Christmas. Even worse they had to do it looking like an angry neon road cone.

Sadly, we can still see them.
Utah Jazz 1997-2004
The team in Mormon country had a jersey that looked like a Coors can. Go figure.

We call it the Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos bag from Burning Man.

They were shooting for glam, but came off as classy as a drunk stripper in bowling alley.
