A number of teams in the NBA, including the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz, are using this offseason as a chance to refresh.
This doesn’t just mean that there are a lot of trades and signings going on, it also means that teams are trying to change their looks.
Sure enough, the jerseys of several squads are being reworked before tip-off in October.
But the changes aren’t appealing to everyone.

Twitter user Rcito points out that the new jerseys for the Cavs and Jazz are rather bland.
While there are variations for each, they appear very straightforward and sterile.
The Jazz jersey is particularly guilty of that, with a simple “UTAH” written in one of the most boring fonts around.
In the grand scheme of things, jerseys don’t really matter but how many players and fans will want to wear these?
Creating an NBA jersey is a fine art and it’s hard to really deliver something incredible.
Sometimes teams will get too wild and creative and the outfits look confusing and ugly.
Other times, the jerseys are too safe and simple like the ones you see for the Cavaliers and Jazz.
Of course, what really matters is how the teams perform while wearing these things and both teams could have very interesting seasons in their new attire.
The Cavaliers have been on a roll lately and are looking to improve upon their last, surprisingly successful season.
That means that Utah could look remarkably different, both in terms of who is on the court and what they are wearing.
