The Boston Celtics appear to be the latest NBA franchise to give in to the latest craze of sleeved jerseys.
As reported by Sports Illustrated, the Celtics have released a new sleeved jersey that they plan to wear as part of their annual St. Patrick's Day festivities in home games against the Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks later this month.
As you will see in the picture above - with the jersey being modelled by back-up point guard Jerryd Bayless - they appear particularly no-frills, just a plain green background with a bit of gold writing and trim to liven things up a little bit.
The whole subject of sleeved jerseys has proved quite divisive across the league so far this season.
While they are evidently a new marketing opportunity for the NBA, many players have spoken out about feeling a little uneasy wearing them - with Miami Heat superstar and reigning MVP the latest to admit that he is 'not a big fan of them'.
At least in the Celtics' case, however, there is at least an obvious historical connection, with these particularly uninspiring numbers - which, like all sleeved jerseys designed so far rather look like pyjama tops - set to be worn in home to the 1946/47 team.
