Designers getting really lazy. I am pretty sure with my very limited graphic skills I could come up with something better than that.

Seems like they were given instructions of
1. Make sure "Maine" is on the jersey
2. Make sure "Vistaprint" logo is easily seen
3. Make sure you use a Boston white style and a Boston black and green alternate style as your canvases.

Cut, paste, cut, paste. And tah dah!!!  This is the crap they came up with.

I hate how prominent Vistaprint is.  It’s going to keep me from buying my kids some merch.

Buy a long shirt and tuck that in.

I’d say that Nike has stipulated that their logo is on all NBA merchandise and I’m guessing that the NBA wants the G-League logo to gain public visibility, and like Nike, Vistaprint must have contractually stipulated that their name/logo is on the front of the jersey too.

I actually bought a Red Claws hat off eBay because I thought the Maine Celtics was to boring.

We went to the game today.  Maine won on a buzzer beater.  Great experience for the kids.  They got to meet “Crusher”, sat a dozen seats back from the Celts bench, got some free hats, and saw an amazing game.  Matt Ryan was on fire late.

Nik Stauskas is not an NBA player.  He doesn’t play like one, and he doesn’t look like one.  He just seems weak and lacks aggression.

I thought he looked good.  Not great, but good.  Compared to most of the rest of the team, he played completely in control and with poise.  He wasn’t a “man among boys”, but he definitely was among the better players on the team.

Perhaps the last two words I would use to describe him at NBA level, which made me chuckle - not that I doubt it, just that it's funny that he looks that way in the G-League.

Yeah, G-League is a different animal, haha.  Everyone plays out of control, lol.

I didn’t see many elements of the Celtics system being taught.  The cool thing was that guys clearly cared about winning.  That was nice to see, instead of just chasing stats.

I liked watching Valentine when he was in college. 8 games in the G-league and he’s averaging 15.5pts, 9.9reb, 6ast, while shooting 44.2% from the field and 36.9% from 3pt. Not sure about his defense, though.
