The Warriors have been a little out of the box in the past when it came to their jerseys, and it's not like their normal jerseys were a huge point of historical pride.

However, there are a few teams that you would assume could never resort to the short sleeve look. The Celtics are definitely one team that comes to mind, and then the Lakers would be a close second.

Forget whatever you thought about the Lakers and their prestigious purple and gold. They'll be wearing short sleeves for at least a few games next season.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of short sleeve look, but lots of people are referring to it as "fashion-forward."

What do you think about the short sleeved look in the NBA, and what is your take on the Lakers trying it out next year?
