New Cavs City Uniform Mixes Up Past Uniforms in Blender

The Cleveland Cavaliers (remember them? they’ve won four conference titles in a row!) today unveiled their new City Edition uniform, a combination of Cavs uniforms throughout their team’s history.

Blue and orange (like the 1980s), the uniform features a “Cleveland” script across the front (based on a Destination Cleveland graphic), with a wave across the front (mid-1990s), and a jagged modern player number font (2018).

Behold, it’s just about every uniform in Cavs history mixed together:


“The new City Edition uniform tells the story about The Land that we love – Cleveland,” said Cavaliers CMO Tracy Marek in the official press release. “Collaborating on design with Nike is always a great opportunity, and to work with Destination Cleveland to represent the city’s brand on our uniform is something that is very special and unique for any team.  We know the players and our fans will wear the Cleveland City Edition with pride.”

The jock tag on the lower left of the jersey reads “1 OUT OF 5 GREATS,” in reference that Lake Erie is one of the five Great Lakes.

Cleveland will wear this uniform six times this season, all of the games are at home. Here’s the schedule:

November 13 vs Charlotte
December 7 vs Sacramento
December 23 vs Chicago
January 5 vs New Orleans
February 13 vs Brooklyn
March 26 vs Boston
