Nuggets unveil new uniforms featuring navy instead of light blue

Denver Nuggets

Since Carmelo Anthony's first season in 2003, the Denver Nuggets have featured light blue as a signature color on their uniforms. It doesn't appear that will be the case moving forward.

Guard Gary Harris helped unveil Denver's new look on Tuesday, as the league switches to Nike jerseys for at least the next eight seasons:

While the overall design remains largely unchanged from last season, the Nuggets' light blue has been replaced by navy on both jerseys, with the only hints of the former coming on the sides of the shorts and in the chest wordmark's outline.

Of course, Denver still has two alternate jerseys to unveil, so its signature color over the past 14 years probably hasn't disappeared for good.

Among the other changes for the Nuggets: A small wordmark reading "5280" has been added to the bottom of the jersey as an ode to Denver's altitude, and the Western Union logo has been added to the left shoulder. This is the first season that NBA teams are allowed to feature a sponsor's logo on their uniforms.
