The Phoenix Suns are bringing back one of the club’s most popular jerseys, the retro black uniforms that the Suns sported from 1994-2000.

As one of seven NBA teams chosen for the league’s Hardwood Classics campaign, the Suns will wear the black and orange jersey 10 times during the 2012-13 season, and for the first time when they face the Los Angeles Lakers on January 30 at US Airways Center.

After unveiling a new hardwood court for the 2012-13 season – a modern design with a black and orange palette – the Phoenix Suns will soon pay tribute to their past with black and orange Hardwood Classics uniforms.

One of seven NBA teams chosen to go retro for select games this season, the Suns chose the popular jerseys with the large, bright sunburst across the chest that were worn for occasional road games from 1994-2000.
