NBA Fans Will Soon Be Able to Cop the Nike Earned Edition Uniforms
NBA fandom really starts to kick off around this time of year, especially with a new year ringing in that brings us even closer to the Playoffs. To get the momentum going early, Nike is giving all 16 teams from the 2017-18 season a new range of Earned Edition uniforms. The best part? Fans of each respective squad will be able to actually buy these in less than a week.
For the Eastern Conference, we have the Boston Celtics paying homage to its warm-up team jackets from the ’80s, Cleveland Cavaliers with colorways that pay tribute to Lake Erie and the icy cold city in general, Indiana Pacers honoring the city’s racing-inspired heritage, Miami Heat going for the neon vibes of nightlight in South Beach, Milwaukee Bucks simply going green, Philadelphia 76ers shooting for the stars, Toronto Raptors giving us “O, Canada” international steez and Washington Wizards going for a marble-style look that directly reflects the iconic Washington Monument.
The Western Conference does it up with just as much style, which includes the championship-wielding Golden State Warriors showing off the gold, Houston Rockets keeping it red as always, Minnesota Timberwolves showing love to the city’s biggest musical icon Prince with purple hues, New Orleans Pelicans with Mardi Gras-inspired colors, Oklahoma City Thunder giving us a taste of the city’s renowned sunsets, Portland Trail Blazers going with the “Blazermania” vibes, San Antonio Spurs getting super on-trend with the camo and finally Utah Jazz going for — you guess it! — a “J” in the form of a musical eighth note.
Get any of the 16 available Nike x NBA Earned Edition uniforms — see those in-action during the annual Christmas Day games and later on-court in 2019 — as a limited edition release beginning next Wednesday (December 19) over on nike.com, store.nba.com, team shops and select retailers.
