The Portland Trail Blazers unveiled their new “Statement” uniforms by Nike last week. The reformatted design, seen below, has received a few raves, but far more complaints. The buzz continues as Dane Carbaugh of NBCSports joins in the parade of pans, as he ranks all 30 NBA refits. He places the Blazers in the category of “Openly Awful”, explaining:

It’s pretty hard to find a way to mess up a red and black jersey, but the Blazers did it this year. It’s a double whammy given that Portland took the best alternate jersey in the league from last season and turned it into the worst. This uniform literally has tire tracks on the side of it. Hard pass.
