The Cavaliers on Thursday unveiled their new “Cleveland City Edition Uniform and Court” for this season, and needless to say the feedback is, in a word, mixed.
The uniforms, as the Cavs put it “designed in collaboration with Nike to be introduced for the current season. Bold in appearance, the new design reflects the shared traits of perseverance, pride and unity for a city and team moving together into the future.
“Cleveland” will be front and center for the world to see when the Cavs debut the newest installment of the City Edition uniform along with a specially designed City Edition homecourt for the first time on Tuesday, November 13th vs. the Charlotte Hornets at 7:00 p.m. at Quicken Loans Arena.”
Here’s quick look at a pic of the uniforms, which is explained here in a release by the Cavs: “Bold colors symbolize the energy between a city and team deeply connected by pride, spirit and optimistic forward motion. Vibrant orange and blue are a nod to the uniform the Cavaliers wore in 1994 during their first season in the new arena when they returned home to downtown Cleveland, which helped stimulate a new era of development and renaissance for the City. Over two decades later, the relationship between the City and the Cavs is forged in common purpose— to continue the momentum of growth and the championship journey with drive, determination and grit.”
