NBA chooses Nike for unis

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK» NBA teams are mak­ing a wardrobe change, with the tra­di­tional home and road uni­forms go­ing back in the closet.

The league said Tues­day it is elim­i­nat­ing the old ap­parel des­ig­na­tions start­ing with the 2017-18 sea­son, when Nike be­comes the of­fi­cial out­fit­ter. In­stead, there will be four pri­mary uni­forms for each team.

The host team will pick which of its uni­forms will be worn for each game and the vis­i­tors will se­lect one of the con­trast­ing ones from their col­lec­tion. Pre­vi­ously, white uni­forms were the de­fault for home teams.

The first two edi­tions will de­but at the start of the sea­son. The “As­so­ci­a­tion” is for­merly the home white uni­form and the “Icon” is the pre­vi­ous road jer­sey, fea­tur­ing the team’s pri­mary color.

The other two pri­mary uni­forms will be re­vealed in the com­ing months.

Also, eight teams will have a “Clas­sic” uni­form avail­able in the fall that they can wear at their dis­cre­tion.
