The Association Edition uniform pays homage to one of the most exclusive clubs in basketball. Every year, approximately 400 players earn the right to put on an NBA uniform. The one thing that every team has in common is the white uniform that represents the association.
The Icon Edition uniform represents each of the unique franchises. Each team has its own identity, one that separates it from the other 29 teams in the league. This edition pays tribute to the iconic nature of each franchise.
The Statement Edition uniform represents the athlete and his desire to have a uniform that sets a tone for rivalries and other big games. This edition allows the athletes from each team to make a statement without saying a word.
The City Edition uniform is inspired by the community that each franchise represents. This edition gives each team the canvas to showcase the pride associated with its fans and the surrounding city, region or state.
City Edition Uniform Design Features
The bright gold to deep burgundy bands on the uniform represent the famous red rock formations found throughout southern Utah, and they also reflect the fire, passion and intensity of the Utah Jazz organization and players. The word "UTAH" is shown across the chest—the City Edition is the only one of this season's four uniforms to feature the name of our state.
Another special aspect of the City Edition uniform is that the Jazz will be wearing a state of Utah logo that features the basketball lines from the primary logo. This represents how the Jazz belong to all of Utah.
Hidden underneath the shorts flap is a graphic of Delicate Arch, one of the most iconic landmarks in the world. Down the right side of the uniform is the driving route from Salt Lake City to Moab—home of Delicate Arch. Down the left side of the uniform is the route from Salt Lake City to St. George.
City Edition Court Design Features
The special City Edition court—which will be used for games featuring the City Edition uniform—pays tribute to the state of Utah and, like the uniform, southern Utah in particular. It features the "UTAH" wordmark emblazoned across midcourt with gradient bands ranging from bright gold to deep burgundy.
The Jazz/state logo is featured inside the 3-point arcs with the same bands of color, and the key is left unpainted. The gradient bands span the entire border of the court, starting at their darkest along the baseline and gradually brightening while approaching center court, where the Delicate Arch is stained.
Statement Edition Design Features
Navy and green have been part of Jazz uniform options for years, but now—for the first time in franchise history—Utah's uniform set will include an all-gold alternate. Always an accent color throughout the team's J-Note era, the Jazz's unique shade of gold will now be featured in the new Statement uniform.
Other design features include an enlarged J-Note logo in navy that has been brought to the forefront of the jersey, with green numbers tucked beside the note. The color blocking of navy, gold and green remains on the uniform, sliced at a 66-degree angle. The uniform also includes the addition of the Nike logo on both the jersey and shorts, as well as a 5 For The Fight partnership patch on the jersey.
Lightweight Engineered Texture
Standoff mesh to ensure low moisture cling; moisture repellency allows for maximum airflow.
100% Recycled Fabric
Made out of recycled polyester; each uniform represents approximately 20 recycled PET bottles; removes moisture 30% faster than previous NBA uniforms.
Scapula-shaped motion shoulder seam for increased mobility.
Zero distraction seams and hems that alleviate irritation and restriction; modified hemlines on the bottom of the jersey and shorts to allow for a full range of motion.
Association & Icon Edition Design Features
The custom number font that was introduced in 2016 remains, as does the thick color blocking of navy, gold and green on the side panels. This color blocking—which is an homage to the coloring of the trim on classic Jazz uniforms and warmups—remains on the uniforms sliced at a 66-degree angle to match the angles of the Jazz logo.
New features include the addition of the Nike logo on the jersey and shorts and a 5 For The Fight partnership patch on the jersey. The word "UTAH" has been removed from the back of the shorts, and the neck color blocking has been simplified.
