The classic Hawks jerseys worn by Lou Hudson (pictured) and Pete Maravich were drastically different from what we know today.

  • Updated

Although the Celtics now have a GE sponsor patch, not much has changed about one of the most classic looks in sports.

When the Nets played in Long Island and New Jersey, their jerseys screamed patriotism.

  • Updated

When the Nets moved to Brooklyn from New Jersey in 2012, the team switched to black and white at its primary colors—a minimalist design that came with input from Jay-Z (who owned a small stake in the franchise at the time).

  • Updated

The Charlotte Hornets in November 2020 rolled out a “City Edition” uniform that plays up Charlotte’s past.

Most noted for being the jerseys worn in Michael Jordan’s rookie season, the mid-1980s Bulls jerseys were infamous for the script lettering across the chest.

  • Updated

The Cavaliers’ unique block piping on their jerseys surely stood out on the court but didn’t lead to many wins in the 1970s—the team only made three playoff appearances that decade.

  • Updated

The current Cavs jersey is a mix of nostalgia and branding of sponsor Goodyear.

  • Updated

In 2010, the Warriors ditched a cartoonish look for a fresh, simplified blue and gold ensemble, which combines a nod to the past and Northern California history.

  • Updated

  • Updated

Like the Warriors, the Houston Rockets underwent a major revamp after ditching a cartoony design. The current red and white colors arrived shortly after Yao Ming was drafted by Houston in 2002.

  • Updated

The jersey seen here is one of the rare times the Pacers had a scripted wordmark across the chest, as the team primarily has had capital letters spelling out their nickname. Billy Knight (pictured) was named an NBA All-Star during the Pacers’ first season in the league, in 1976–77. Read more

  • Updated

  • Updated

Basketball teams in New Orleans have had a varied history of uniforms. When the Hornets franchise played in the city, they kept their teal and purple but added a dash of gold.

  • Updated

  • Updated
