Uniforms Rumors


Storyline: Uniforms
A jersey isn’t just a jersey anymore. In taking over the NBA apparel deal, Nike announced on Friday that scanning the jersey’s “jock tag” with a phone will offer the most recent highlights of that specific player and his team. Doing it on game day will unlock offers specific to that player or team, including limited shoe releases. “We know what we can do — make amazing gear,” said Stefan Olander, Nike’s vice president of digital innovation. “But we wanted to do something more and we know the passion that consumers have for these players and their teams.”

The Charlotte Hornets today unveiled their Classic edition uniforms for the 2017-18 season, bringing back the design worn by the original Charlotte Hornets from their inception in 1988 through 1997. Like the previously released white Association and teal Icon editions, the uniform features the logo of Nike’s Jordan Brand. The Hornets – the only team in U.S. professional sports to have the iconic Jumpman logo on its uniforms – will feature five different uniforms in their 2017-18 uniform collection. “Since we brought the Hornets name back in 2014, our fans have practically been begging for us to wear a version of the original Hornets uniform,” said Hornets President & COO Fred Whitfield. “We could not be more excited to give them what they want and to see the historic pinstriped, teal Charlotte uniform back on an NBA court.”
