The Jumpman finds a home on the Charlotte Hornets’ new jerseys.
Not too long ago we reported that the Swoosh would be appearing on the right chest of the new NBA uniforms for all 30 teams in the association. However, one exception is the Charlotte Hornets who will instead flaunt the Jumpman since the team is owned by Michael Jordan.
Today, we’re getting our first look at the Hornets’ new uniforms and they’re exactly what you would expect. This is a major milestone for the brand and the NBA as a whole.
A few subtle changes to the new uniforms include thinner striping on the jersey and shorts, the Hornets’ secondary logo on the side of the shorts, and, of course, the Jordan Brand logo on the front of the jersey and shorts.
We’re a little bummed that the classic pinstripe look from the ’90s didn’t make a comeback. The Hornets still have three more jerseys to unveil so a retro look could be in the works.
Let us know what you think about these new uniforms and your thoughts on the Nike and Jordan Brand logos being featured on the game worn jerseys as a whole in the comments section below.
