Throughout the NBA offseason, teams across the league have unveiled their brand new Nike uniforms for the upcoming season. Although, all we’ve seen thus far are the “Association” and “Icon” editions which will be taking place of the traditional “Home” and “Away” uniforms.
All 30 NBA teams will have four primary uniforms next season, including the “Association” and “Icon” editions, as well as one inspired by the athlete’s mindset, and another representing the communities that support their teams. Unlike previous seasons, home teams will not be obligated to wear their white “Association” jerseys for home games.
In addition to those four primary uniforms, each team will have a classic uniform to be worn during select games as well.
Today, the Charlottes Hornets unveiled their classic retro uniforms to be worn next season, which turn back the clocks to the original pinstriped Hornets jerseys which were worn from the team’s inception in 1988 through 1997. The jerseys feature the familiar teal base, pin stripes and dribbling Hornet logo on the waistband, just like the iconic uniforms worn by Muggsy Bogues, Baron Davis, Jamal Mashburn, Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning and others.
Of course, this time around the Hornets’ unis include the Jumpman logo on the chest which will be present on all of their new gear.
According to the press release, the Hornets will wear the Classic uniforms for three home games this season, including November 15th against the Cavs, December 23rd against the Bucks and January 13th against the Thunder.
