The Phoenix Suns are entering a very important year.
Having added Kevin Durant last season and Bradley Beal over the summer, the hope is that they will finally be able to return to the NBA Finals following a two-year layoff.
Hype and excitement is at an all-time high for the franchise and its fans, as shown this week when newly-leaked photos of the Suns’ City Edition uniforms went mega-viral.
The new uniforms largely speak for themselves:
I was close on these, as I thought. Purple looks a bit brighter than what I had but the back of the KD jersey looks darker in that photo.@skunwong32 strikes again. https://t.co/u6t0adLojV pic.twitter.com/u1aHRLX16T

Fans, understandably, had a lot of thoughts on this particular stylistic choice.
They flocked to social media to weigh in.

What the heck is these? They look like the WNBA jerseys. Suns have done bad. All three new uniforms are horrible. Suns really did downgraded big time. Sad sad sad

Because of that, Phoenix’s new uniforms are bigger story in the hoops world than one might expect them to be.
Big day for the Cincinnati Bengals. https://t.co/YBdYJYTuYn

Will the 2023-24 season mark a turning point in the Suns’ franchise and see them win their first ever NBA title?
Time will tell.
