Grading Every Nike \'City Edition\' NBA Jersey From Kingly To F Land

Weeks after they were inadvertently leaked by NBA 2K18, Nike's NBA "City Edition" jerseys finally were released and put up for sale. According to the Nike site, there's a bit of lore behind every team's look, from the Clippers' San Diego roots to the Warriors' rich Chinese culture.

Some of the studs include the Bulls, Bucks and Kings, while a few of the duds are the Hawks, Cavaliers and Thunder. Every team seemed to draw from a different inspiration -- whether it was the 76ers' gorgeous look inspired by the Declaration of Independence or the Timberwolves embracing the fact that where they live is freezing, to cool effect -- and the result was a cornucopia of colors and looks. (The Heat, Knicks, Raptors and Rockets' city jerseys will be released at a later date and weren't included here.)

CBS Sports handed out grades for all 26 jerseys released -- with Jack Maloney taking the Eastern Conference teams and Kevin Skiver on the Western half. They're listed below alphabetically by city.

Leave it to the Hawks to get funky with their new jerseys. There is a lot going on here with the futuristic font, the highlighter-yellow-on-black color scheme and the triangle design down the side. Unfortunately, it's all a bit too much -- even with Jeezy as the one who debuted them. Overall, a disappointing effort.

Grade: D

Boston Celtics

What is up with trying to force a gray jersey upon the Celtics? They had the garish gray sleeved jerseys a few years ago, and now they have these new threads. Which are … fine? The parquet design paying homage to the iconic floor is a nice touch, but it's hard to see.
