The ‘Aztec’ Uniform Concept for the Phoenix Suns has Sparked Debate

Each season, NBA teams issue new jersey colors and styles to mixed reviews from fans who either appreciate adding new tops to their collections or prefer their favorite teams to stick to vintage designs.

While those jerseys are relatively harmless even among non-fans,ย Andrew Lopezย of ESPN noted Thursday the Suns sparked a bit of controversy with their “Aztec” uniform concept:

Phoenix will continue to use “The Valley” jerseys for the upcoming NBA season, and the Aztec concept is not yet guaranteed to enter the franchise’s rotation.ย
