For the 2018-19 NBA season, Nike’s kicking the inspiration for its City Edition jerseys up a notch.
The Swoosh sought inspiration from a variety of sources for this year’s lineup, part of which was previewed with special threads for the Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, Minnesota Timberwovles, Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic, and Philadelphia 76ers.
Highlights of the collection include the Nets’ Notorious B.I.G.-inspired top which mimics the Coogi sweaters favored by the late Brooklyn MC. Meanwhile, Minnesota’s jersey looks to Minneapolis native Prince and his classic album Purple Rain in celebration of the late artist’s 60th birthday. Elsewhere, OKC’s jersey honors the American Indian Nations of Oklahoma with geometric patterns and the 76ers keep it simple with a heather grey look that nods to the Declaration of Independence.
