Cavs Unveil New Team Jerseys For 2017-18 Season

The Cleveland Cavaliers have had an awfully ‘peculiar’ off-season after losing the NBA Finals in five games to the Golden State Warriors.

After deciding to not re-sign General Manager David Griffin, the Cavs have had a summer to forget. With the only “big” additions being Jeff Green and Derrick Rose along with Jose Calderon joining the club, all through free agency, the team has certainly missed out on big moves this summer. The biggest misses of the summer were the inability to complete a trade for Jimmy Butler or Paul George due to the lack of a true presence of a general manager or negligence from the other sides.

Cleveland was already in a weird spot, then Kyrie Irving got vocal about his position with the team. Irving stated that he wanted a trade so he could become “the man” somewhere else, catching everyone (including LeBron James) by surprise.

The one good thing to come out of this summer is the new jerseys that the team will be debuting this upcoming season. Take a look below:

The white jerseys are the “Association edition” while the wine jerseys are the “Icon edition,” per a release from the team.

Cleveland Cavaliers chief marketing officer Tracy Marek said this regarding the new uniforms:

“The new uniform are uniquely inspired by both the history and future of the Cavaliers franchise and represents the power of teamwork and partnership. We had the incredible opportunity to collaborate with Nike on the design of the uniform and we found the perfect partner in Goodyear who shares our home-state pride and values of drive and determination. We couldn’t be more fortunate to work with two global leaders in their respective industries, and their prominent representation on the Cavaliers new uniforms helps present a timeless message of performance and impact on and off the court.”

Obviously this won’t change fans’ opinion on the lack of activity the Cavs have had this off-season and definitely won’t change their opinions on the Kyrie situation, but at least the team will look cool however they fare this season.
