During the 2006-07 season, the NBA launched Noche Latina – otherwise known as Latin Night – to much success. In addition to special telecasts and in-arena festivities, the most noticeable difference you’ll see during the 12 Noche Latina games slated this month (schedule below) is a new set of uniforms for the Lakers, Heat, Suns, Mavericks, Bulls, Spurs and Knicks. With the first game tipping off tonight between El Heat and Los Spurs, we thought we’d show you the new threads. Check ‘em out:
