The Dallas Mavericks will continue to honor their first appearance in the Conference Finals by wearing their road green uniforms from 1987-88 against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, Mar. 10 on TNT (9:30 p.m. ET). The Mavericks have been wearing the uniforms at times this season as part of NBA Hardwood Classics Nights.

Until a re-designed jersey was unveiled for the 2001-02 season, the Mavericks uniform had undergone very little change since the team's inaugural season in 1980-81. Here we take a look back at some of the uniforms the team has worn in its history.

NBA In Big D
At the 1980 NBA All-Star Game, league owners voted to allow a team from Dallas into the NBA. Beginning with the 1980-81 season, the Mavericks joined the Midwest Division. Current Knicks Head Coach Herb Williams slipped on the Mavs original jersey in the late '80s and early '90s. The team's look would remain largely unchanged until 2001.

A Touch Of Green
The Mavericks first road uniforms were green with blue and white trim, as worn at left by Mark Aguirre, who spent more than seven seasons with the team. As was customary, the home uniforms boasted the club's nickname across the chest while the road uniforms displayed the city of the franchise.

Blue Period
In the early 1990s, Dallas changed the color of its road jerseys to blue, then drafted Jason Kidd with the second overall pick in 1994. The team was mainly known for its futility in the '90s, winning only 239-of-788 (.303) games and missing the playoffs for the decade. The Mavs turned it around in the late '90s, however, to get back to the playoffs after the turn of the century.

Changing It Up
In the fall of 2001, the Mavericks re-designed their logo and uniforms that remain in use today, opting for blue and silver, losing all traces of green. Michael Finley and teammates won 57 games that first season in the new look. In a departure from their previous home jerseys, the Mavericks had "Dallas" lettered across the chest instead of the team's nickname.

Silver Lining
For the first time in club history the Mavericks introduced a third uniform, as Steve Nash and teammates wore a silver road uniform at times during the 2003-04 season, in place of the usual dark blue road jerseys. The uniforms were made with Nike's Dri-FIT Shimmer to give them a metallic appearance.

Sharp Dressed Men
This season, the Mavericks debuted another alternate uniform, this time designed by hip-hop mogul Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. The new green uniform Dirk Nowitzki sports here incorporates the green and blue of the team's original road jersey.

Looking Good In Green
The Mavericks have suited up occasionally this season in the same road jerseys that the team wore in its early days -- green with blue and white trim. The only difference in the gear Jerry Stackhouse wears here from the early 1980s is that the shorts have gotten a slight bit longer.
