With the new season coming up, the latest iteration of NBA teams’ City Edition jerseys have started coming in. While it has not been officially released yet, the Milwaukee Bucks’ City Edition jerseys for the 2023-24 season have (unsurprisingly) leaked on social media.
Fans React to Milwaukee Bucks City Edition Jersey
The Bucks’ new set comes in the familiar blue colorway, which has been the theme of Milwaukee’s City Edition jerseys over the past couple of seasons. The photo came from a Twitter account that goes by the name GPG:

Naturally, it had to be Giannis Antetokounmpo’s No. 34 jersey that was featured in the photo. After all, he is still the main man in Milwaukee regardless of the summer arrival of seven-time All-NBA point guard Damian Lillard.
As expected, the new City Edition jersey garnered all sorts of reactions on the mean streets of Twitter. For the most part, a lot of Bucks fans were complaining about the choice of color:
Yo @Bucks We are not a blue team!

The pattern bothers me, and the colors are way too Timberwolves. But they aren’t the worst I’ve seen

Looks like packaging for a case of bottled water. 😞

Had enough of the blue. Wish they'd bring back the cream color or do one based on The People's Flag. pic.twitter.com/wpvwCg6nig

More than a few others were more vocal with their outright disapproval of the design:
This is god awful

While there are still a handful of fans who showed their appreciation for the new threads, the general sentiment was that it was not the most well-loved jersey design out there — and that’s putting it lightly.
I guess it’s safe to say that a number of fans won’t be using their hard-earned money to purchase this particular jersey from their beloved Bucks. The marketing team could probably still pull the plug on this if they wanted, unless they’ve already started with mass production.
