adidas Rolls Out Retro NBA Uniforms (PHOTOS)

Seven teams will wear retro ‘90s jerseys during Hardwood Classics nights.

The Suns have already brought back one of the NBA’s all-time hottest uniforms this week (in a win over the Lakers, no less). And fortunately, adidas is bringing back six more bold and unique NBA uniforms from the ’90s. Reminisce by clicking through the gallery above for some for some of the NBA’s most memorable uniforms.

Four teams will debut their nostalgia throwbacks tonight—Bucks in their “Full Buck” alternate road uniforms; Bulls in their black pinstripes worn by the ’95-96 Champion Bulls; Pacers in their classic pinstripes; Heat in their “Deep Red” alternate aways. The Hawks and Kings will debut their retros later this month.

You can cop your own jerseys at NBAStore.com and team shops for $100.

The uniforms will be worn during NBA Hardwood Classics Nights and additional games played through March. Check out all the details from adidas Basketball:

    The design of the Hawks jersey was simply amazing. But I think that the Pistons one with the flamered horse on the chest should have been released too !!!!!! :(
