The Celtics will always be the Green, but there may be a little black in the sartorial mix next season. The club confirmed yesterday it is considering an alternate uniform that will include black accents and a more updated look.

In a quick check with historians yesterday, no one could remember there being a color other than green and white on the Celts' jerseys and shorts. If a change is made, it would be for a third uniform that, under league dictates, would need to be worn a minimum of six times (e.g. the Lakers wearing their whites on Sundays).

While league sources say the new uniform is pretty much on its way, Celtics executive VP for sales and marketing Rich Gotham said, ``We haven't committed to it yet. The league wants us to commit to it, but we've sort of reserved judgment on it. We looked at it last summer and punted on the decision. Now we're looking at it again.''

Though the Celts switched away from the traditional dark sneakers at home starting last season, Gotham said, ``We wouldn't mess around with our standard uniform. If we do it, it will be a special edition, so to speak. It's a decision we wouldn't take lightly. We wouldn't do anything without consulting Doc (Rivers), Danny (Ainge), Red (Auerbach) and probably the players. We'll see if it's something the fans are interested in and the players would enjoy and we'll sort of go from there.''

The league had been having some of its teams wear old-style uniforms on occasion this season, but as Gotham said, ``We're already retro.''

Never thought the team with the most classic jerseys would start up with the alternate trend.

Anyhow, apparently this is gonna be it:

Huh. Not too sure about this one.

Looks like a college jersey to me.

Ewww, not liking that at all, I don't mind the new black, but that green looks awful.

Meh, looks fine to me (a darker, bolder green would be more pleasing to the eye, however) ... and it's only an alternate uni, nothing for "traditionalists" to get worked up over.

I WANT to like it, but I'm with Quezzy on this one. They should do anything that messes with the green. I'd have expected something more like Duke's black kit.

I agree, they ought to leave it alone. It's the Celtics, for godsakes, their uniforms are traditional.

Hey guys, it could be worse. They've used two of the three colors of the Irish flag. This could have been a Dolphins-esue orange third jersey.
