The Charlotte Hornets have today announced the return of their classic purple pinstriped uniforms, which will be worn in select games during the 2019-20 season. After all, Hornets fans deserve something to be excited about as their team is destined for another dreadful year.
Just like the Hornets' white and teal uniforms from the last two seasons, the latest Classic Edition uni mimics the design of the '90s classic, worn by the likes of Larry Johnson, Muggsy Bogues and Alonzo Mourning. According to today's press release, the 2019-20 season will mark the 25th anniversary of when the purple uniforms were first introduced.
