With the post season excitement, this week, the Phoenix Suns unveiled a conceptual uniform design inspired by ancient Aztec culture and symbols, and they want to know  what the fans think of the new design.

“Steeped in symbolism, the uniform boldly blends the grit, unity and history of the Aztec civilization, harnessing the prowess and battle-hardened strength of its people, and the influence it has had on Latin culture for centuries,” the team said.
The design features an Aztec Sun Stone superimposed with “PHX” on the chest to represent “a gathering of deities working as well.” The triangle and rays represent heat and unity, “all originating from a single source, the Suns.”

The Suns organization goes on to explain that an Aztec Death Stone is on the back of the jersey, an “homage to fearless warriors even in the face of death.”

The mostly black uniform, features purple trim, the Suns basketball logo, and jaguar armor.
