The NBA’s annual uniform leak season is here and they’re coming at us fast and furious.
Following two “City Edition” uniform leaks yesterday from the Dallas Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets and earlier leaks from the Los Angeles Lakers and the entire “Classic Edition” collection; this morning we have three new “City Edition” jersey leaks from the New Orleans Pelicans, Phoenix Suns, and Portland Trail Blazers.
SportsLogos.Net can again confirm all three of these new leaks this morning are indeed legit.
Starting with the New Orleans Pelicans, the leak matches what we had reported several months ago that the club would have a uniform based on the New Orleans city flag.
Here we see three golden fleur-de-lis on a jersey with three horizontal red, white, and blue stripes starting from the top and going right down to the waist, again matching the design of the flag. The player’s number is below the three fleur-de-lis in a thin blue serifed font. Collar is blue with gold trim, the sleeves also have this thing gold trim.
Back of the jersey is almost entirely white with the red striping from the front carrying over slightly up by the shoulders, the blue stripe at the waist continues all the way around.
Out west in Phoenix, the Suns will be wearing a new uniform celebrating “The Valley”, a nickname given to the Phoenix metropolitan area.
The jersey shows a black silhouette of the desert mountains that surround the Phoenix area with a pixelated representation of the sky during a sun set in yellow, orange, red, and purple. Purple trim continues around the collar and sleeves. The team’s wordmark logo appears in yellow down in the lower left of the jersey.
Finally, the Portland Trail Blazers will be honouring the entire state of Oregon with their new “City” edition uniform:
The jersey is black with red trim and a scripted “Oregon” wordmark across the chest in white. Now, my knowledge of Oregon or Portland is limited so I’m not sure of the references here, we see what looks like a topographic map pattern sublimated into the base of the jersey as well as several red, yellow, royal blue, and light blue stripes down the side of the jersey. If you get these references please share in the comments!
The “jock tag” includes the phrase “We Will Always Be Here”.
