For the second year in a row, Nike and the NBA unveiled their collection of NBA jerseys known as the City Edition. Though the official launch date of these jerseys is November 9th, a few teams have gifted us with early sneak peeks of what we’ll soon see on the court. As with last year’s collection, some franchises have gone bold with alternate color schemes, while others have chosen to highlight characteristics of their city or team history. Above all, every City Edition jersey will feature the iconic Nike Dri-FIT fabric along with the NBA Connected Jersey technology – keeping you cool under pressure and connected to the game you love.
All jerseys dropped 11/9 at 3AM on lids.com so don’t sleep on this. We will continue to update this list as more teams release images of their new unis, so keep checking back for more news.
