Kristaps Porzingis hints at ‘dope’ Mavs jerseys for next season
Dallas Mavericks star big man Kristaps Porzingis had a chance to take over the Mavs twitter account (@dallasmavs) on Sunday to answer fan questions.
Throughout his takeover, Porzingis gave a multitude of interesting answers to all sorts of questions such as that pineapple DOES belong on pizza and that Kobe Bryant, Mike Tyson and Conor McGregor are his all-time favorite athletes.
However, one of the biggest thing that the Mavs star mentioned during his takeover was the possible reveal of new Mavs uniforms for next season.

The supposed new uniforms are an obvious throwback to the uniforms sported by Dallas in the 80s and 90s with the unique green color and old-school logo. When Mark Cuban bought the team in 2001, Dallas changed their logo to essentially the one we see today and primarily got rid of the green for more blue.
It’s unknown how often the Mavs will wear these new jerseys next season but it’s likely that they won’t become the team’s primary uniforms and that will only be worn on certain, more special dates.
In late 2019, the team released their annual “city” jerseys which received mainly mixed reviews.
Before the NBA season was suspended due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the Mavs were in a position to make the postseason for the first time since the 2015-16 season. At 40-27, Dallas held the seventh seed in the Western Conference.
As for Porzingis, the 7-foot-3 power forward was averaging 19.2 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game while shooting 42.0 percent from the field and 34.9 percent from deep.
