Teams Will Reportedly Rock ’90s Throwbacks Next Season

According to Uni Watch, a handful of NBA teams will occasionally wear throwback uniforms next season.

“There are Hardwood Classic jerseys for Indiana (home from 1997-98 through 2004-05), Milwaukee (late ’90s), Chicago (mid-’90s alternate), Atlanta (late-’90s road), Miami (late-’90s alternate), Sacramento (mid-’90s alternate), Phoenix (1990s alternate), Philly (early-’90s road), Cleveland (mid-’90s road), Toronto (late-’90ss home), Houston (late-’90s road), and Utah (late-’90s road).”

The report also says that teams will have new jerseys for Christmas Day as well as weekend home games played in the second half of the season.

The Basketball Jones reports that only some of those jerseys will actually be used in games. Regardless, it should be very interesting to see the League’s young talent rocking ’90s jerseys.

    Makes me feel old when I see those jerseys and don’t really consider them throwbacks…

  • shawnkemp4prez

    …and thanks to the league’s new advertising deal, the throwbacks will feature a small McDonald’s logo on the collar. No thanks.

    i guess orlando magic won’t be making ANY type of noise next year.

  • LA Huey

    The “Cartoon Era” was the worst collection of jerseys…unless you were a kid during this time. I remember thinking those Raptors jerseys were so cool.

  • Jono

    When mid 90s jerseys are being retro-ed…wow…I feel old :(

  • Mariano

    I was in love with the Suns’ black jersey as a kid

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Love the Kings jerseys. Spurs, Magic, and 76ers should do some throwbacks from the Robinson, Penny, and Iversin days.

    Those Bucks ones might be the most underrated ugliest jerseys ever. I may have to get a Jennings one.

  • http://Roosterteeth.com Caboose

    Ugliest jerseys ever? 2005-06 Kings Gold Alternate.

  • Aamir K.

    Cosign Caboose, The Sixers should do an Iverson era Blue Road Uni, or at least the White Home, or Black Away, a few years ago they wore teh Barkley era White/Blue Home jerseys tho

  • LA Huey

    The Kings have the ugliest jerseys for sure but those half-Purple/Black ones are worse than the Gold alternates.

  • http://www.slamonline.com spit hot fiyah

    @caboose what about spurs and mavs silver/space uniforms?

  • Tweaks

    LA Huey got it right with the ”cartoon era”…i used to think the same thing back then, almost as if the Raptors logo was unfair to the other teams :) ))))

  • http://www.slamonline.com Slick Ric

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Im liking the Suns jersey, the others, we could go back a little further… I like the old T-Wolves jersey (with the harmless looking wolf) Heat had a better looking shirt (think Harold Minor) Retro Vancouver Grizzlies jerseys in Memphis?? Im feeling it… And no, Thunder doesn’t get to wear Sonic jerseys..

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgvwfvTcNl0 danpowers

    the late 90s / begin of 00s were the ugliest decade jersey wise. the hawks, warriors, rockets, jazz, looked like clowns, many other teams just classless, except a few like the heat, pacers, bulls, celtics. the early 90s late 80s were the sh**t stylewise

    Those Pacers jerseys look nice.
    Also make it happen KD I want to see him back in a Sonics uni.

  • pposse

  • Riggs

    Where the hell are the Magic’s Star Unis? Those are my fav unis of all time.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4FqOUz-Ia4 Ugh

    The Vancouver unis were the worst ever. They were even worse than the team.

  • mask

    The Bobcats vs the hornets in a one game play-in for the rights to the throwback Hornets! 90′s magic pinstripe #1 overall followed red hawks pac man #2!

  • MeloMan15

    Vancouver Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors jerseys were amazing

  • http://friendhour.tumblr.com/ cramzy

    Man I used to want that T-mac, Orlando Magic jersey with the stars all over it.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Toronto’s were so cool. Think the dark blue late-90′s Houston jerseys killed the pinstripe–they really butchered those… RIP pinstripes.

  • Bernie

    I think the cl

  • Bernie

    I think the closest the thunder can get to throw backs is a yellow green okc jersey.

  • kwame

    the funniest part of this is that Jason Kidd can re-use his throw-backs. LOL
