Let’s have a look at the city edition NBA jerseys of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the American Men’s Professional Basketball League for NBA 2021-22 75th Anniversary season.
This year’s Raptors City Edition jerseys pay an ode to the franchise’s first-ever uniforms with the classic giant Raptor on the front, along with the original font and jagged pinstripes. However, the uniform is remixed with the black and gold “OVO” colourway that has become a staple in Toronto’s alternate jerseys since 2015, a tribute to the team’s Global Ambassador, Drake.
The City Edition yarns pay homage to the team’s legacy and the iconic moments that have defined the franchise’s 75-year history. The jersey projects a white wordmark and number scheme from a solid green base, the back features a white nameplate block under the player’s jersey number, a nod to it. The ribbon around the arms and neck replicates the 1965 team uniform. In addition, 17 clovers are located on the lower left of the jersey, at the top. above the jocktag, each wearing the year of a Celtics championship season. The uniform also recognizes Boston basketball legends with three replica banners containing the 24 player numbers and names that have been withdrawn by the organization.
The 2021-22 76ers City Edition uniform celebrates the NBA’s 75th Anniversary and the franchise’s storied history by honoring their home from 1967-1996, the Philadelphia Spectrum. The front of the jersey features a variation of the art-deco style “Sixers” wordmark that the team wore in the mid-1970s in bold red with crisp white outline. The Spectrum color panels run down both sides of the uniform and nod to Philadelphia’s “4 for 4” sports fans.A “4 for 4” fan supports all four major professional sports teams in Philadelphia.The numerals are derived from 1976-77 uniforms and the overall Navy Blue base color is a fresh and prestigious look for the team that honors their legacy.
The new uniforms for this season were designed to incorporate different eras of the franchise, creating a modern look while paying homage to the totality of Nets history. From the stars and stripes design of the Dr. J era, to the redesigned 1990s wordmark revived with last season’s Nike NBA Classic Edition jerseys, the argyle side panel of the consecutive NBA Finals teams in 2002 and 2003, and the influence of the distinctly styled herringbone court on the team’s uniforms in 2012, the 2021-22 Nike NBA City Edition Uniform honors the Nets’ legacy from New York to New Jersey and back, highlighting a sequence of recognizable looks.
The Jersey features the Knicksâ signature black and orange piping over a black base. Change the black base with blue and itâ€™s eerily reminiscent of the Knicks road jerseys in the late 90s. The new city edition jersey comes with checkered side panels and the Nike NYC logo.It was designed according to a â€œmixtapeâ€ theme and an ode to the biggest Knicks moments over the last 75 years.
