Yesterday, the Cavs rocked their standard road wine jerseys (pictured here) in Chicago and LeBron put on a show. He finished with 37 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists and had multiple highlight reel plays.
I prefer when the Cavs wear their wine road jerseys on the road as opposed to any of their other jerseys. The navy isn't bad, but their colors are WINE and gold, not NAVY and gold. The CavFantatic jerseys just look strange, and the 80s throwbacks, while cool-looking, get a little too close to "Knicks" territory for my tastes. Plus, the Cavs are now 15-4 this season when rocking the wine, which is pretty damn good.
Personally, I can't remember whether this or my white LeBron jersey was the first Cavs LeBron jersey I bought (I know both came after my gold SVSM jersey, which I got while LeBron was still in high school), but I know this is my favorite to wear of my four Cavs LeBron jerseys. It's probably my most worn LeBron jersey, though the 2007 All-Star Game jersey (a swingman version) is pretty close.
Another thing I prefer about this jersey is it's a mesh. The current Cavs authentics are a solid fabric (as seen in my Shaquille O'Neal navy alternate), which is great for display, and probably even for wearing on the court, but kind of annoying to wear when you're layering up like I do when I wear a basketball jersey.
Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 150 of them, that could be awhile.
