Nets unveil Classic Edition uniforms for 2020-21 season

Brooklyn will throw it back to 1990 with its latest look.

The Brooklyn Nets are the latest team to reveal a new look for the 2020-21 season.

The Nets unveiled on Wednesday their Classic Edition uniform, which honors a fan-favorite “tie-dye” design worn during the 1990-91 season.

 

The “sky blue-to-white gradient” uniforms were last worn by the Nets when the team played in New Jersey. Here’s more from the Nets on the history of the design:

“The Nets launched the 1990s with an aesthetic reset, introducing a refreshed logo along with these new uniforms, and the 1990-91 season was the beginning of a memorable era for the franchise. The Nets drafted Derrick Coleman with the first overall pick in 1990, Kenny Anderson second overall in 1991, and in between acquired sharpshooter Drazen Petrovic, sparking a run to three straight playoff appearances. While the “tie-dye” jersey lasted just a single season before the Nets opted to replace it with a more modest royal blue, the logo and jersey lettering they introduced in 1990 carried through the 1996-97 season, defining that era.”
