Eight NBA Teams To Wear Classic Uniforms Next Season

Written By:  •  Saturday, August 5, 2017

UPDATE: Since the writing of this article, some major pieces of info have come to light:

  • The Milwaukee Bucks have officially unveiled their new Classic uniform
  • The Charlotte Hornets have done the same
  • There was a major leak of the shorts of the Warriors Classic uni
  • We may have seen the first glimpse of the Suns Classic uni

 

Next season in the NBA, eight teams will wear throwback uniforms, notified as “Classics” by the official Nike denotation. Each team in the NBA will have a set of four uniforms to choose from, and the eight teams with Classic uniforms will have a 5th uniform option. Through a contact of mine with close knowledge of the situation, I have obtained the list of eight teams to be included, plus the list of eras from which the uniform design will come from. Unfortunately, I am unable to confirm if each team will wear the home or road version of their throwback uniform, but we can at least narrow down the possibilities significantly, especially in the case of some apparent rumors. Without further ado, the list:

Atlanta Hawks – 1972-76
Charlotte Hornets – 1989-96
Golden State Warriors – 1984-87
Indiana Pacers – Hickory Hoosiers fauxback (rumors say it will be a white version of the previous Hickory uniform)
Los Angeles Lakers – 1947-52
Miami Heat – 1988-99
Milwaukee Bucks – 1968-73
Phoenix Suns – 1968-73

Taking into account those teams and eras, I’ve compiled a series of photos representing the uniform designs that we’ll be seeing those eight teams wear next season:




These selections are sure to excite and disappoint a couple fanbases, but that’s why we’re here anyway, to discuss it all. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
