Check out the updated Cavs' uniforms.
Each and every day one or two NBA teams unveil their new Nike "Association" and "Icon" uniforms for the upcoming season. Today, the Cleveland Cavaliers revealed what their two primary jerseys for next season will look like.
Thus far, the Nike NBA jerseys that have been revealed are essentially the same from last season, with the exception being the Indiana Pacers, who revealed a completely new look.
The Cavs are one of the few that will be sporting a new design next season.
"The wordmarks on each uniform introduce a new aggressive look. The sharp edges of the typeface are inspired from notions of a defender and the forward-like motion of the sword."
"The white Association edition uniform features CAVS across the chest in wine accented by a gold outline. The front and back player numbers are wine with a gold outline. The lettering (last name) on the back of the uniform is wine, as is the trim on the collar and shoulders of the jersey. The wine waistband on the shorts showcases the word “CLE” front and center."
"The wine Icon edition uniform features CLEVELAND across the chest in gold accented by a navy outline. The front and back player numbers are navy with a gold outline. The trim on the collar and shoulders of the jersey is navy, while the lettering (last name) on the back of the jersey is gold. The navy waistband on the shorts showcases the word “CAVS” front and center."
All 30 NBA teams will have four primary uniforms next season, including the Association and Icon editions, as well as one inspired by the "mindset" of the NBA athlete, and another representing the communities that support their teams. Unlike previous seasons, home teams will not be obligated to wear their white jerseys for home games.
