Nike’s new NBA partnership will begin with the 2017-18 season, but last night the Swoosh gave us a glimpse of what to expect as we got an exclusive look at the brand new NBA Statement Edition uniforms.

The new Statement uniforms will be the threads teams will be wearing for big time games or rivalries. The design of each uniform is inspired by the team’s desire to make a bold statement every time they step on the court. The aesthetic expresses the specific spirit of the current roster. Take the Boston, Chicago and Cleveland uniforms for example, the chose black bases to represent a sense of strength and power. Each has team-specific detailing; Chicago’s pays homage to its historic use of pinstripes, while Cleveland’s displays the franchise’s secondary logo. Other teams such as the Denver Nuggets use their heritage as inspiration (mile-high altitude), and the list goes on.

The defending Champions Golden State Warriors pay respect to the culture and legacy of its hometown: Oakland. Their uniforms read “The Town” above a new team crest, which employs Oakland’s family Oaktree (a design found on street signs and sourced by the team through Oakland’s city government).

Take a look at all the jerseys above and catch them in action next all season long. Also, look for the Nike NBA Statement Uniforms to become available November 20th on
