After two seasons playing in the entirely gold Statement uniform with directional ray lines, Nike has unveiled the second iteration of the Statement, reaching back to Pacers uniforms of the past for inspiration.
The Bucks' Statement Edition uniform is a "super-charged version" of the team's previous Fear the Deer uniform. In addition to the Cream City rainbow, which represents the "diverse colors of Milwaukee and surrounding areas", the uniform features Cream City cream numbers for the first time.
The Bulls are bringing back a remastered version of their iconic '90s pinstripes. The new black Statement Edition uniform features embossed vertical pinstripes, creating a sophisticated, yet stealth look with iconic detailing of the jersey rib, short waistband, and side panels featuring the Bulls' primary red color. As a nod to the history of franchise success, six stars in the form of the Chicago flag were also added to the belt buckle.
The Nets turned to Brooklyn-based artist Eric Haze for their team's latest look. Haze designed the team's new Statement Edition uniform, which features a concrete grey color, hand-drawn?"BKLYN" letters across the chest and?Haze's signature star down the left side of the jersey.
The Sixers are turning the clock back to the 1970s with their Classic Edition uniform this season. The throwback look replicates?the jersey worn by Philadelphia during the 1970-71 season and it features a special?"Seventy Sixers" wordmark design on the front of the jersey.
The Hornets will bring back their iconic purple uniforms this season to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the jersey's debut during the 1994-95 season. The 2019-20 edition of the uniform will echo the past, while also incorporating some new elements.
Additionally, the Hornets are tweaking their Statement Edition uniforms for 2019-20 as well.?Most notably, the chest plate says “CHA,” matching the NBA’s official abbreviation for the Hornets. This marks the first time the team has used the abbreviation, which appears in white with a teal outline, on its jerseys. The numbers are teal and the player’s name on the back is white, as they were on the previous Statement Edition uniform.
The Cavaliers will send it back to the mid-1990s?with their Classic Edition uniforms this season. The design features a modern take on the "fan-favorite" black uniforms that debuted during the 1994-95 season.
