Wizards announce they'll wear their Stars and Stripes uniforms for all home playoff games
I actually prefer their standard uniforms.
A basketball team representing the city of Washington is already something that should bring everyone together. The jerseys were already red, white, and blue. The alternate logo incorporates the Washington Monument. Nobody was accusing the Wizards of being unpatriotic.
Personally, I think the "military tribute" stuff comes across as pandering. It feels forced, a marketing appeal based on the large number of military personnel and contractors in the area. Home games dedicated to a specific service branch no more "honor" those branches than "college night" "honors" college students. If it's really sacred, you don't use it as a ploy to sell tickets/merch.
