Nike and the NBA have released a set of 16 new "Earned Edition" jerseys for the 2020-21 season. The new looks are available exclusively to the 16 teams that reached the 2020 playoffs inside the Orlando, Florida, bubble.
In a news release Wednesday, the NBA said the new jerseys "amplify the iconic elements that are ingrained in the fabric of each organization."
"As an added nod to the 2020 NBA Playoff teams and their pursuit of an NBA championship, 15 of the uniforms are adorned with special silver insignias including a silver Nike swoosh on the top left front of the uniforms; a silver Earned Edition jocktag on the bottom right front; and a silver NBA logo on the back, above the player's name," the league said in the release.
The defending champs, however, have a unique honor sewn into their jerseys.
"The Earned Edition uniform for the 2020 NBA Champion Los Angeles Lakers stands alone with these marks decorated in gold to honor the NBA Championship the team earned in Orlando, Fla. at the conclusion of a historic NBA season."
Here's a look at all 16 uniforms:
